MAC Hey, Sailor! (Summer 2012) Discussion - Page 92

post #2731 of 4359

Hi guys! Can anyone give some input about the makeup bags and tote for this collection? I really love nautical themes, but I was curious about the size of quality of the bags in person?

Also, will the bags be available at counters or just online and official MAC stores? Thanks!

I don't have a lot of access to a store, and a lot of people don't. My local MAC store still sells out quickly if I have the patience to drive an hour, and the MA's are not nearly as useful as the posters here. There are tons and tons of swatches on this thread because Hey Sailor launched a few weeks ago in Europe. There are lots on the web too thanks to this, you can search pretty much any product from the collection and find a swatch and review. I could be wrong, but I don't think the bronzers will sell out as fast as Crew and the lipsticks. Bronzers aren't a product that everyone knows how to use, like the lippies.

I've googled many times and I've looked at every picture and swatch here, believe me! I really appreciate what people have posted. :)

 

Others may be better (more experienced) at knowing what will suit them based on an arm swatch. I'm newer to picking this way and make better decisions when I can see the product on someone's face who has similar undertones. It's mostly Crew that I'm concerned with. It's not a major life decision, so I'll either just order today or I won't. Thanks for the help.

Still on the fence about NoB versus SD. I'm a NC25-30, warm w/ yellow undertones and all the reviews I've seen split about 50/50 between the two. I suppose I can wait until T posts her reviews or maybe I'll try heading out to my F/S later today. I placed a pre-sale order at Nordies but they only had a tester for NoB. 

 

Aside from that, my haul is pretty much set!

The swatches I've seen look very pink but the MUA insists that Launch Away is peach and not pink toned, and that crew is warm because of the base colour. She also thought Crew would sell out quickly. I may just have to order and hope that they work.

 

I know you love Crew; do you think it could work for the warmer toned?

Since you're NC25-30 i think Fleet Fast would be better than Launch Away. Launch Away is very beautiful, but light so it might not show up as well on you. Fleet Fast is gorgeous and deeper so i'm sure it will show up on you. It's a lovely muted burnt coral (i think that's the best way to describe it).

Thanks, Pinkdollface. Immortal Flower is pigmented enough to show up on me, so I'm hoping Launch Away will be as well. The concern with Fleet Fast is that it will draw out the natural redness in my cheeks that I have trouble covering. I certainly like it on you, but my cheeks are much redder than yours. :)

If IF shows up than i think LA will too:) It's a pinker version of IF. Do you use liquid foundation? I have natural redness on my cheeks as well, but i can cover it with an NC foundation. I use pro longwear or MUFE matte velvet plus, but i like Studio Fix Fluid as well.

Yes, I wear Face & Body N3 (it's pretty neutral). I'm also trying out primer to see if that helps.

Maybe that's the problem. F&B has light coverage. Maybe you can ask for a sample of pro longwear and try that. It doesn't have to be heavy, just use a pea sized dot for one cheek or maybe even less. Start in the problem area and work to the sides of your face.

http://www.temptalia.com/mac-hey-sailor-pigments-review-photos-swatches#more-34303 I really hope they're making the screw on caps a permanent thing for the pigment jars. I will be super pissed if they don't.

Just ordered Riviera Life and Abalone sun tint. That's it for me! I need to save for Heavenly Creatures, so I'm not even going to go see this at the counter. I'll end up buying a bronzer and MAC's bronzers are not my favorite.
post #2743 of 4359

Red Racer is sold out now. Hope my order got through that I placed minutes ago. eeksign.gif

I'll ask for a sample of PLW next time I'm in; that might be the solution. Thanks.

It's pretty and not too cool at all. The Vera powders are about as pigmented. The colour is there, but it applies really well without overdoing it. I'm glad I got it. On our skintone it's more of a blush / coloured glow than a highlight. Pretty.

Thanks. I called the Canadian office and talked through the colours with someone there who has similar colouring and swatched away on herself for me. After all was said and done, I added Launch Away to my order. She said it was peachier than Lovecloud but less peachy than Immortal Flower. I think it will work for me and if not there are others at home it will work for. I passed on both Fleet Fast and Crew, at least until I can see them for myself.

 

The order should be here tomorrow! th_happy1.gif

In fact, I am 117 in mufe HD and BR 22 in Vitalumiere Aqua, and I think C1 (which was wayyyy yellow) in F&B ...Porcelain in LM TM. You get the picture. It is definitely more peach than the average pink but say less peach than deep throat by NARS if that makes sense. It is quite unique in my stash of blushes totalling more than 70 (!) blushes
*hides face in shame and still craving Fleet Fast*

They are not similar at all, color or texture.

Much more red in it, though not the same as Lady Danger or Scarlet Ibis. Definately get this one! clapping.gif

Launch Away is peachy pink on me and Crew is not cool either. That is, it IS cool cooldude.gif. Catch my drift...?

post #2758 of 4359

Thank you for those. I was thinking about getting it if it was a real orange, but really is an orange red & colors like that always pull so red on me so I can skip with no regrets

It's not as orange as Morange or Neon Orange, so if you want a real orange those will be better. On me it's not really a red orange, but more of a darker orange.
