post #211 of 1095

I just ordered Razzledazzler because I don't think it's coming out here in store. I want Rebel, but I'd like to swatch it first. It's perm, so I'll wait.

Thanks for the links, rockin! Christine did an amazing job!

 

I like the idea of fashion sets. I wish they (especially the lipglosses) were perm. I like Please Me best. heart.gif

post #215 of 1095

Spice might just be alright for me.

post #216 of 1095

I JUST placed my order and here's my list:

 

Morange l/s

Morange l/g

Girl About Town l/g (I already have the lipstick)

Spice l/s

Spice l/g

 

I CANNOT wait to get my hands on Spice.  It kinda reminds me of Pillow Talk (which is my faaaaavorite nude lip) lipstick, just a tad darker!  I usually don't backup items, but I regret not backing up Pillow Talk.  If Spice tickles my fancy like I think it will, I'm definitely backing up the l/g and the l/s.

 

As far as Morange ... I know the lipstick is permanent but I like for things to be complete so I had to get the l/s with the l/g lol.

Girl!  I think it will be for all of us brown gals.  Even fair women.  It looked cute on T's lips.

post #219 of 1095

Rebel lipglass is pretty gorgeous! And Snob and Saint Germain look soooo weeeird on Temptalia lol. I've never tried them myself, but I'm warming up to Gaga 1 and I like Naughty Saute. I just think Snob and Saint Germain would wash me out (particularly Saint Germain). I wish Girl About Town looked decent on me, lol. I don't know what it is about that shade, it's just not very flattering on me at all. 

post #220 of 1095

Ugh, I already placed my order and now I want the l/s and l/g for Peachstock and Impassioned.  I'll order those sometime next week but I will B2M for Impassioned.  I'm still indecisive about Rebel l/g.. I already have the l/s.

 

I have the majority of the lipsticks in the Fashion Sets collection, but for some odd reason I'm not interested in getting their matching l/g besides GAT lol

post #221 of 1095

I agree.

 

 I love and admire the time and work she puts into her website and love her product swatches. 

 

But when it comes to the lips, it seems she puts quite a few layers on her lips and just doesn't look right.  shrugs.gif

I can see what you mean with a double take,

But I struggle to even see any colour with Karen's.... At least we get a good view with Christine's
post #223 of 1095
Hey!!

I'm a senior now woo hoo!!!!!!!! Yay
post #224 of 1095

True, I just keep in mind that I wouldn't wear the lippie like that, and go from there...

True. Christine gives us a really good idea of what the lipstick looks like at its fullest. I'm liking the different lighting shots she includes now, too.

Snob is a lot more wearable than it looks on T, it looks more muted in real life IMO. At least on me (NW10-15) it's more flattering and it's one of my go to l/s. Saint Germain is another story though, LOL, it is much more intense than Snob. If you like Gaga 1 I'm sure you will like Snob as well.

Does anyone know if Please Me is similar to Lovelorn? tong.gif

 Really thankful for your links Rockin! I really thought I was going to get a large part of the European collection. However, after seeing T's swatches I'll only take Russian Red nailpolish since I already have the lipstick and lipglass. Maybe Saint Germain, but I will check that in store. Too bad GAT isn't coming our way. One of the best sets I have seen in the swatches. Soooo disappointed in Impassioned, especially the polish which seems way off...thmbdn.gif

GAT is my favourite, too.  That and Angel might persuade me to buy nail lacquers IF they become available here, despite the huge number of nail polishes (of various brands) I already own.  I'd get the GAT lipgloss, too (I already have the lipstick). 

 

For the most part, the European collection is pretty dull. 

post #231 of 1095

I agree. We miss out on several pretty colours. I also have GAT and think the polish and gloss are some of the best in the collection. From what I see, the most items (gloss and nailpolishes) are a bit diappointing and those that aren't are not in the EU collection.

post #232 of 1095

Soo excited about Spice lipstick. Spice lip liner is one of my first Mac products and I love it so much I use it alone as an all over lip color.

T has great lips for swatches. However, she needs to take some make up lessons and/or read about fashion trends ... Or take an additional picture showing a more fashionable way to wear lipsticks. When you look at the lipsticks trends from the past seasons, they are mostly blotted down. The caked-on look is not attractive on her at all. I already fear how she will cake on Salute from HS.

post #234 of 1095

Darn it, Razzledazzler l/s is sold out! I shouldn't have waited for the swatches to come out lol. Now it's just Spice l/s and Ravishing l/s in my cart. I really hope there's a restock, but they haven't been too good restocking lippies as of late especially the limited edition ones. 

 

post #235 of 1095

I agree that Christine's swatches are usually way overdone & Karen's are too light but I do love both of their sites. I think that Allura's swatches are the most dependable lately on how a color looks as worn in real life. I also think Allura's coloring is closest to mine so that really helps me personally

i was gonna skip... :/

post #238 of 1095

I just placed an order for Girl About Town, Russian Red, and Rebel lipsticks. I got Rebel lipglass. Not interested in much else.

Are these going to be at counters?

post #240 of 1095

I agree with what everyone is saying. Lipstick is definitely worn blotted down and paired with liners and glosses these days. There's so many fashionable ways to wear it.  I personally believe that you get more out of the lipstick by pairing it with a liner that complements the lipstick color or slightly contrasting with it.  It's crazy because she has SO many resources and doesn't take advantage of it.  I read other blogs where the women are AMAZING at makeup, and don't get the recognition they deserve.  The more popular bloggers are terrible at makeup application.  My point of saying this is definitely not to trash them, so I won't throw out any names.  I'm simply stating the truth.  When it comes to swatches, I say find someone you sincerely trust or simply go to your local counter or store to test it out.  Only you know what you like.  People depend on T's swatches so much because she's one of the few, if not the only big-time blogger who can get the entire collection.  I enjoy her site, but I have to take everything she says with a grain of salt because her opinion is a consumer / novice-based opinion... Not an artist opinion.  Plus our complexions are so different so what looks great on her may not look great on me.  I prefer the bloggers who focus on artistry and different ways to use the product versus just swatching it and saying it's the best or saying it's horrible because it didn't SWATCH well.  Okay... so it didn't swatch well, but how did it perform when you put the product to USE?  I have NUMEROUS MAC shadows that don't swatch well BUT perform well.
