That's why I don't do nudes and browns, I need color.

I do love the chestnut nailpolish though.  I used to wear a brown like that in the late 90's early 2000's. LOL   I loved it!

Ok now Saint Germain l/g is back on my list!

 No CYY for me, I will take Spice anyday.  

 

BTW...I tracked down a Shitaki lippie on eBay and freakin' LOVE it!   heart.gif

I really like the Chestnut l/s + l/g combo icon_eek.gif

 

Normally I do not like brown lips but this looks very pretty!

I think that I like it because it is a dark brown with a hint of red.

Now I am curious to try it but I am worried that it might not suit me....but otherwise it is fun to try completely different colors and to see how they look on!

Whenever I see brown lips I think 90's
I don't know what it is..... I just would never ever wear it... Just my opinion :-)

Brown lips look absolutely hideous on me

My wishlist for this collection is getting shorter by the minute. All the better, because I still have quite a few items from Reel Sexy and Hey Sailor left...

According to MAC.com, the Europe & Africa collection is Myth, Spice, Saint Germain, Morange, Impassioned, Russian Red and Rebel.   Not a great selection, in my opinion.  I do hope the others will be available online to us, or this will be a very small haul for me - just Russian Red gloss, which is permanent anyway.  The ones I wanted aren't in this list.

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.

I really like the lipstick!

 

 

So far for me it's Impassioned l/g, Russian Red l/g, GAT l/g if we're getting it and I'll probably B2M for Please Me l/s.

I ordered Snob ls, Snob lg, Snob polish, Ravishing lg, and Ravishing polish on the website two days ago...still debating on the rest.  I know I will be getting Impassioned ls and lg, but I figured I could wait on those since they will be sold in stores here.  I think I might get Razzledazzler ls, lg , and polish as well although I don't usually like Lustre ls.  Spice seems to be calling me as well...the swatches are gorgeous!

i have to admit, i am kind of lost as to what's available where, and when and whatever...

 

so far my list is kinda small...i'm most interested in nail polishes. i like the glosses for the lipsticks i have already, but i'm trying to shop my stash for lip products, so i think i'm going to have to exercise a bit of control in that matter. although i was thinking it might be a good idea to buy russian red lipstick to replace my older one and see if the matte finish is the new one....

If they replace Russian Red with the new matte formula, then I'd get a new one of those, too.  Meanwhile, I think I'll get the Russian Red lipgloss that I've been meaning to get for ages and never got around to because of all the new LE collections they keep putting out

post #199 of 1095

Im really just interested in the lipglosses. Snob, Ravishing, and Angel <3 Cant wait to pair it with the lipsticks :)

I have most of the lipsticks already & I'm not very interested in the nail polishes cuz I think I can find some pretty good dupes, but idk what lipglasses to get. I'd like most of them but I'm not willing to spend that much.

I think it might be time for me to finally get Rebel.  It's been on my wishlist for ages now

Have you called your local Mac store? Were only getting the North America collection here in NY. So ordering online for any of the other shades is our only option at this point.

no i haven't done that yet...i guess i will go in on thursday, and maybe bring some empties so i can back to mac if i end up wanting some lip products after all!

but i think i will go through my collection and determine which lipsticks or glosses i'm going to ditch if i buy anything...

Makeup trends, like fashion trends, always recycle!  Obviously, MAC is bringing out brown lipsticks to prepare us for the Fall trend color lineup.  Like Mac-Guy mentioned about the Fall Lip Palette.  If you think about it, bright lips and clothes used to be associated with the 80's... now they are back!  I never put myself in a box and say "that shade belongs to that era."  Almost certainly you will be rocking that color again!  The 90's was a long time ago.... and I'm happy to see things coming full circle!  I mean, there are only so many colors and shades available.  I want to be able to set my own rules for what looks good and flattering on me.  And, if my memory serves me correctly, Rachel (from "Friends") was one hot cookie trend-setter with those lips and haircuts! 

I ordered Spice and will more than likely go back for Chestnut as well.  I'm open to it!  If I could get myself to wear Party Parrot, a brown shouldn't be a problem!  HeeHee

I am tipping over into team spice, I think. With all these browns coming out, it reminds me of Revlon Toast of New York! greengrin.gif It was my very first lipstick hahaha

post #209 of 1095

I can't decide between GAT or Impassioned? I'm NW 20 --- which should I get?? 

 

Thanks for any help.
