It's very rare that I'll pair lipgloss with lipstick - it's one or the other for me.

As I understand, the North America region has only Spice and Chestnut (both limited editions) available online and instores. Razzledazzler is only available online and is limited edition for the North America region, but is permanent for the Asia Pacific region.

Same here, but I much prefer l/s over l/g. The only time I'll do l/s with l/g is when I wear a nude lip. I find nudes more wearable that way.

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.

 

Great choices! You're gonna love Spice!!

Thinking about pulling the trigger on Spice l/s. I really don't have a good nude. Think an NW15 could pull this off?

They seem to be 2 totally different shades IMO... Here are swatch comparisons.

I think so! Especially with the rosey undertone of the lipstick, I think it would be quite flattering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not surprised Razzledazzler sold out so quickly, especially for those that missed out on Flamingo. However, I would think that MAC would definitely restock this collection if it is running through June 28. I know we have Hey Sailor! In between there, but particularly for Razzledazzler's sake, it is a permanent shade in Asia, so I don't see why they wouldn't have another restock. It's not exactly a regular "limited edition" lipstick like Spice and Chestnut.

Go for it.  It has a rosy hue to it.  For those fair women who think Chestnut l/s is too bold, I think they will find Spice to be satisfying.  I really believe that Spice is for everyone from fair women to us brown gals. I like it because it's not a plain nude.  Those rosy hues really make it neat.  IDK if you're in the US or not but if you are, you'll have a chance to go to your local counter or store to test it out since this shade is a part of the North America set.

chinablaq, do you have Spice?  I think we may be similar skin tones (I'm NC50).  Spice was on my list until I saw swatches and now I'm not sure I can pull it off.

Girl, yes! I'm so ready to get my hands on Spice.  Your swatches persuaded me to get Morange.  I'm not afraid of orange, but I never paid attention to the color.  But after seeing the gloss and lipstick... I had to get them!  And of course Girl about Town was a no-brainer.  I have the l/s so it was only right to get the l/g.

 

How are you liking Peachstock l/s, l/g and Impassioned l/s, lg?  I'm thinking about going back and ordering those sometime next week.

Oooh I like Lovelorn!

post #255 of 1095

I know MAC went based off "popular" shades in each region but I am puzzled as to why Up the Amp isn't popular in the U.S.!?? That's my all-time favorite lipstick from MAC.  When I was working for them I put so many customers on that lipstick.  I'm on my 3rd tube. LOL. I would have went crazy if they made a matching gloss to Up the Amp.  I have Famously Fab! l/g , which does remind me of Up the Amp, so I guess I will have to be content with that. haha

Up the Amp gloss would be sweet.  I don't feel any rush on this collection.  The chestnut nail polish looks happening, but I hardly ever wear polish that I don't get at the salon.  And MAC formula just really doesn't compare to OPI.  I just go with Lincoln Park After Dark if I need the brick brown vamp nails or go with Midnight In Moscow.

 

If there is any Spice lippie left when I order next, I could see it jump into my cart.  And a Morange gloss...but in general, the gloss is too sticky, I would rather wait for creamsheen glass or plush glass in the color I want...

Snagged 2 rebel lipglasses and 1 girl about town lipglass. I might grab spice.

Yea I feel you.  I get my nails done twice a week at a salon so I actually don't own any nail polishes.  I doubt any of these sell out.  Of course Razzledazzler sold out since it's only permanent in Asia and LE in North America. I ordered, but I still want Peachstock and Impassioned l/g & l/s... I also want 4 things from the Hey Sailor collection so I've decided to order those 8 together around the 2nd week of May.  Well 7, since I'm gonna B2M for Impassioned. I'm almost certain that the l/g will still be available for purchase by the time Hey Sailor shows up on the MAC PRO site. I hope they give us a free shipping code too. LOL

 

I honestly don't mind if l/g are sticky as long as the color looks fab on my lips.  The stickier the gloss, the less you have to reapply.  I like the cremesheen glasses as well.  But they wear off easily.

Is Spice lipstick similar to Kinda Sexy?

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.

 

Can you share which bloggers you think are "amazing"?  I'd like to see their sites, especially those by WOC.  I like seeing swatches on people with brown skin to get a better idea of what the color may look like on me.  If you don't feel comfortable posting here, can you inbox me?
