Yeah, the nail polish looks very orange.

 

Also, it's really weird how much more pigmented the lipglass looks in T's pictures than in Allura's pictures.

I don't actually understand how these sets are going to be distributed, will some be online only at certain locations and some at the counters too, or will certain shades not be available in certain countries at all? anyone.gif

That is true...the same applies to Girl about Town!

Was going to skip this collection but broke down and bought GAT and Impassioned glosses. These are two of my favorite lipsticks so I am sure I will love the glosses.

 There is no point in buying a matching polish if the colour is different is there? Off my list then....

On the Canada site we also have all the different sets. I'm not sure if the stores will have them all.

 

Anyone know how Temptalia rated previous MAC nail lacquers? She seems to be giving these good "grades," which could be bad news because my excuse for not buying them was the poor quality.

 Same here. However, if the polishes do not match the lipstick I will skip anyway. Bummer. Wallet is less sad though...

This color reminds me of Mary J Blige and 'em in the 90's. Not sure I'm feeling this. But I do rather like the nail polish.

Brown-reddish lippies, such as Chestnut or Spice, seems to be the new trend as the Fall lip palette shows. I don't think it looks poop-ish, we are simply not used to brown lips. I venture to say that it can be quite a statement lip, maybe even more daring than a bright red.

post #161 of 1095

The nailpolish addict in me wants them ALL. I can't decide if I want Razzle dazzler or not.

For what it's worth I KNOW that OPI has colors are definitely dead on dupes for Rebel and Chestnut. So I say you can eliminate those.

Which ones? For sure I know I wanted Morange, RR, Chestnut, Angel, Myth, GAT so far

For Rebel I'd go with Lincoln Park After Dark. For Chestnut I'd go with Suzi Loves Cowboys from the Texas collection (more recent and easier to find) or Suzi Says Da! from the Russian collection a few years back.

I wouldn't be surprised if Allura does one swipe and T layers it. At least that's how it looks to me.

 

Maybe online we all can get whatever item and in stores we can only get whatever is in our specific region?

i got ever hip so.. im skipping. I'm loving morange in the lip combo! lol

should i get spice? or would it look too 90's on my nc10 skin?

post #168 of 1095
My package shipped! I'm most excited to get Chestnut! Piarpreet: I think Spice would look lovely! It's more of a statement nude. Not quite a nude, but definitely a flattering neutral. I know the current trend is neon and brights, but I find brown to be a flattering shade on many complexions. I agree with Mac-Guy that it's more daring than a red lip! But defnitely brown can be universally flattering! Just not something we see all the time post-Friends show era.

Girl yes !!!! That was the exact same thing my coworker and I said LOL

post #171 of 1095

I love them myself but find that, for me, they aren't easily wearable. Now that I am older my teeth are a bit discolored and this type of color only highlights that.

Yup! And that's what makes it so unique to me. I think Chesnut will make a nice color to tone down some super bright oranges and not so flattering nudes I have accumulated over the years. It's also looks deeper and warmer than Shock O Late .

They sell colors like Chesnut at the local beauty supply store. I usually pass on them, but I will def get this one, for the Mac quality.

Also getting Rebel l/g and GAT, which I am going to B2M for.

Omg I love the Pink Nouveau polish in T's swatches! It doesn't match the lipstick but soo pretty and Barbie! Still not biting though lol. Just say no to MAC polish, and yessss to Hey Sailor and Heavenly Creature.

Do I need impassioned?!
Quck, think fast lol
post #177 of 1095

I'm in love with Impassioned, and Girl about town.  Love pink nouveau lipglass and nail polish.  Not sure about peachstock, I think the lipgloss is pretty.  Love the Myth nail polish, and morange nail polish.  Not sure I can pull off Morange lipstick, but I'd try the lipgloss,

YES, I don't have it, but it looks pretty.

post #179 of 1095

I can't do spice and chestnut lipsticks.  To 90's and browns/brick make me look dead.

post #180 of 1095

I have most of all the permanent shades in lipstick form, and the ones I don't have from the permanent line I don't have interest in. 

 

I got: 

 

Lipglass:

Myth

Please Me

Impassioned 

 

Lipstick:

Spice

RazzleDazzler 

 

 

I would get l/g in Spice and RD, but I'm really not a lipgloss person, and I don't want to go broke lol ... I thought about Angel, Pink Nouveau, GAT... But I rarely use Pink Nouveau in L/S form, although I like it... Angel, I rarely use... GAT I feel is easy to find a gloss that color... And basically it comes down to money and I have so many lipsticks and glosses that I rarely use, so I picked the colors that I pick up the most to get in gloss... Plus I thought Angel and Please me while not the same pink, were close enough and not worth getting both in lipglass...I got "Myth" in l/g cause I have wanted to try it in lipstick form, but thought it was too pale a nude for me and so I figure the gloss will be more wearable to try ... I have creme d' nude over myth... And Hue and Fleshpot , cause pale pink-nudes look better on me in general ... Peach nudes really light look bright and just too fleshy for me.
