My order has already shipped. Too late.

Nope, I don't work for MAC. That is, I do work for MAC (and so does my hubby) , I am just not on their payroll...

I guess I forgot to remove it from my cart because I just got my box and it was there! I tried it on and mehhh, tacky! Seriously, I don't buy MAC lipglass anymore because I can't stand the stickiness. It's a little bit less sticky, but I get these weird stringy things everytime I open my lips and I didn't even apply a lot. icon_eek.gif

Which items do you guys think are gonna get sold out? I want too much from the collection and I want to know which items I still have time to think about

post #2765 of 4359

I probably have at least 200 lippies & don't ever wear 190 of them, I am finally learning what not to buy maybe? lol. Even Watch me Simmer pulls super red on me so I'm sure this will too. I think I am safe skipping.

icon_eek.gif....that was fast!

 

But since MAC has finally sent out the mail newsletter several items will sell out soon I think.

We should all be on their payroll - at least then we'd get the employee discount! I was kidding - I didn't think you actually worked there. It's just funny how we all nudge each other into further purchases. mac_atemywallet.gif

post #2768 of 4359

I narrowed down my list as much as I could and still ended up ordering:

barefoot e/s

jaunty e/s

man rays body oil

refined gold bronzer

crew

shore leave l/p

to catch a sailor l/s

blue stripe eyeliner

If When I succumb I am going to place complete blame on you. LOL

 

Little Miss MAC on the phone (NC20-25) said Crew pulls very pink on her. I er...might have another free shipping code at my disposal should I change my mind later today or tomorrow. Things don't seem to sell out quite as quickly on the Canadian site, so I should be fine.

 

Thanks for the er...encouragement. poke.gif

Thankfully, I can't wear MSF so HC won't kill me.

 

I don't do big hauls, it's just that I buy small ones so frequently that it adds up. I have a great base now, so I need to just pick up items I love because there is always another collection right around the corner. (Can you tell I've practiced repeating that to myself over and over)?

post #2774 of 4359

Yup. Can you teach me how to do that? clapping.gif

post #2775 of 4359

shipping confirmation ! thank god....

post #2776 of 4359

I probably carry 50 with me in my make up bag! lol! never feel bad! there are so many more expensive hobbies to have!

Red Racer is sold out, but I think Crew, Sail La Vie, Feeling Fresh, and the tote will go the fastest. The lipsticks usually sell out first.

 

Also, yay, my orders shipped! I don't know when they'll be here yet, but hopefully tomorrow or Monday. I can't wait to do a nautical look. If anyone does a Hey Sailor FOTD, I'd love to see pictures!

post #2779 of 4359

my order is still processing from this morning icon_eek.gif

 

 

hope my items will not be out of stock by the time it ships ohboy.gif

Temptalia's swatches of crew are beautiful! http://www.temptalia.com/mac-crew-highlight-powder-review-photos-swatches

She says the beige part is an overlay huh2.gif

post #2781 of 4359

Got my package! Red Racer is really really really pretty lol. I totally didn't see the yellow in it but once I swatched Runaway Red next to it the yellow was very pronounced. Sail La Vie with Riviera Life is HOT!! Blessedly Rich is nice but I don't see the pale coral part at all-not complaining at all because it is nice and shimmery. I'm about make my second order now...I think at least.

Oh my gosh - I don't like it on her at all. I know she's put it on heavily to show the colour, but in the first face shot she looks like she has a pink mask from under her eyes to just under her cheeks. Look at her forehead in comparison. This would definitely not suit me - I'm glad I passed on it.

Okay all Toronto area ladies, looks like the Pro store had quite a few things other than Barefoot eyeshadow (I think I got the last one).  The store has set up a lot of the stock near the register (used to have most of the permanent makeup bags on the shelves) while the display with testers is close to the entrance.  I wasn't playing close attention but there seemed to be quite a few Crew highlight powders on register area shelf thing.  Also not sure about the stock for Red Racer lipstick.  My mind was elsewhere, I think I was feeling rushed or something...  Sorry.

 

I originally wanted the tote bag but not sure if I want to drop $54+ on it just yet.  I didn't get to check out the quality of it.  Now debating whether or not to go back for it tomorrow as I'm on stay-cation next week and I doubt my husband would be happy about going shopping with me.  I'm just not sure if it'll be around the week after my vacation, though it would be better for me as I get paid then.

She added a new "excavated" picture that might help clear up confusion

I think I remember that you're in Canada. I typically get the product delivered before the shipping notice. I've been told before that they're slow to update the website. When I spoke to MAC Canada this morning, they told me that they were releasing last night's web orders today (I should receive it tomorrow since I'm nearby).

I can't believe RR is out of stock! I've been sick for a loooing while, but last night I was so bad I was hysterically crying, curled n a ball sick. Then it happened this AM. Now come to find out I can't even order the damn LS I want. I'm so pissed b/c this LE craziness is so frustrating. Especially knowing people are buying 4 & 5 of these things. Leaves people with nothing!

The worse part is I'm so I'll that I can't figure out what to get. ARGH. I really dislike life right now!

I know everyone's ordering up a storm already, but just wanted to continue with my impressions of the collection:

 

Crew: This was nearly colorless on me (NC15) when applied lightly, although overall it had a cool pink cast. The main thing about it is there are transparent sparkles in it - pretty much the same level as last year's My Paradise, but clear/white. It's pretty subtle, but the sparkles made it a no-go for me. I feel too old for sparklies all over my face, when I could use the amazing EDSFs instead. I think Crew will look best on people with mid to deep toned skin, or pale gals who are wearing some bronzer or noticeable blush (otherwise it may not show up, except when the light hits the glitter). I wasn't crazy about it. It was a skip for me. Pretty looking product, though! If you loved the Vera powders, Crew will be up your alley.

 

Fleet Fast is a very nice shade for people who felt Early Morning was a beautiful color but too pigmented and hard to control. This will be easier to apply. It's the texture of Tres Cheek blushes, but with an extremely finely milled gold sparkle mixed in. It's about the finest gold sparkle I've seen, but it's still sparkle, as opposed to sheen. This made it a no-buy for me, personally, but if you like golden glints catching the light, this is as subtle and low key as it gets. 

 

Launch Away is a more neutral, nude Immortal Flower. If it shows up on you, it will be an effortless blush. It was a bit nothing for my tastes, but I tend not to go for really simple nude blushes in general. Will work great for subtle contouring for pale people, especially in conjunction with some bronzer.

 

The eye pencils and shadows were nice, pigmented and smooth, but honestly very dupeable and not particularly interesting to me. Even Feeling Fresh felt a little throwback-y, due to the shimmer in it. Not for my coloring, either, so I know I'm a little biased. The lip pencils are nice, though. The red one's perfect for all the orangey reds this year and will look interesting even worn on its own and the coral is very bright, brighter than In Synch (but it doesn't really match any of the lipsticks or glosses in the collection, which is a bit odd). I really like the Pro-Longwear lip pencil formula - if you have a full day event filled with eating and drinking, these babies will keep your lips looking neat, even if you don't get a chance for touchups of whatever you put over them. They're worth the extra cost for their durability.
