I only have 1 FM but I use it once a day all over my face in the morning but I haven't noticed a dip yet. Don't make me have a panic attack! LOL

I hear ya. I like to use it sometimes to set my foundation and don't use it everyday. I don't wanna run out quickly.

I went yesterday and got DA and SI lipsticks, and didn't see FM since the tester was broken and nothing left in the pan, but they still have it !!

I am still debating if I need CIS lipstick or not? Is it a must have? and what else should I get before they all sell out?

post #7865 of 8500

Ok, the lipstick game...

 

DA -> SI -> CIS -> LG (and I don't have PZ yet, but I reckon it will be last, considering my love for red lippies...kisses.gif

Does anyone want to play the ranking game?  Which lippie did you love the best?

 

I think for me its DA > SI > CIS> PZ > LG but I may need to play some more to be certain.  Any recs for liner to wear with DA? 

Ow this is hard. I think it is SI>LG>DA>CIS for me. I don't have or want Pure Zen.

Wow how did you do that?! I don't even have a dip yet:p But that said I like it the best just as a highlight and I don't need that much product for it to show up. I'm still glad I have my 4 BU's though. Even if they repromote it or make something similar. I love the compact!

Ooh, I have to get Vino to try with DA! I really love DA but it's not quite as dark as I had hoped it would be.

WAIT!!! Did you hit pan on a BP already???

post #7869 of 8500

Lipsticks: Hmmm - DA>SI>LG>CIS (so far - of course this may change)

 

No Pure Zen here. I have enough neutrals. I like COLOR!!!

 

I'm going to rock CIS today.

 

Hooray!

Funny how, on average, LG isn't too high on the list. There was so much hoopla over it before the release!

 

I wonder why that is. Super high expectations? Too close a shade to Moxie? Texture/payoff etc. not as good as the others? Inquiring minds would like to know! smiles.gif

LG>SI>PZ

 

I was more excited in getting Scarlet Ibis and Pure Zen instead of Love Goddess before the release.  I bought Love Goddess as a sort of impulse buy, but it turned out to be the shade that I use the most from the collection.  It's really beautiful, doesn't dry my lips, and is ridiculously long-lasting on me.  I guess it helps that I don't have a shade similar to it in my stash nor have Moxie and Revlon Cherries in the Snow.  I don't know if Pure Zen in the Marilyn packaging is more creamier than the perm version of it, but it's the one I pick the least because I have similar colors.  Scarlet Ibis is a really wonderful matte lipstick and a lovely red-orange shade.  

 

I don't have Deeply Adored (sold-out on pre-sales) and Charmed, I'm Sure (I passed but starting to get skipper's remorse).

 

The BP on the other hand is a whole new level of awesome. eyelove.gif

OMG, in every thread I enter there's someone praising Vino! So glad that I ordered it this morning (along with some other bits... hehe)

This is exactly what's happened to me!

Yep! I was like "what is this silver stuff I've got in my BP?" And then realised it was the pan. And almost fainted. Haha :D

There are some crazy Marilyn collectors out there, I wouldn't be surprised if people would buy them!

Oh dear.

There's still wayyyyyyy more than half left - the dip is in the middle only (at the moment anyway!)

post #7876 of 8500

I've been in pink mode for a month so I couldn't wait to wear my Marilyn goodies. I finally broke out Love Goddess this morning and I'm loving it! I'm wearing it with Beet liner and it's pretty bright so I may switch up and try Burgundy liner for a little more depth. Glad I got a b/u of this because it looks like I'm going to be wearing this a lot!

BuickMackane,

 

I really like LG but right now I'm into deeper reds and burgundies.

 

LG, to me, is the perfect Springy/Summery red. Light and refreshing!

 

I think this is why DA and CIS are getting a lot of love from me right now.

 

They are the deeper fall colors I crave.

post #7878 of 8500

Wearing DA for the first time today (with Beet liner)... In LOVEEEEEEE!

Going to have to order Vino to use with it too based on the recs here... These lippies are chameleons with these different liners!  SO versatile!!  Who would've thought that a collection of red lipsticks could have so many universally flattering shades!

Ah, that makes sense. I too like my deeper colours in fall (punctuated by the random eye searing pink every now and again, of course).

 

CIS is beautiful btw heart.gif

I transferred from using LG a ton to DA today for this same reason!  I see myself rocking this bunches through winter!!

Sorry if you've said this before, but what brush/application technique are you using to apply it? 

 

I use a kabuki brush and use Forever Marilyn as a setting powder. I've used it 5-6 days a week for the past month. Here's my used one is on the left, brand new BU on the right. I'm so intrigued

Yup!

 

I've been playing around with different l/l  with theses reds.

 

Plus I've been layering them with other reds.

 

I LOVE IT!

post #7883 of 8500

I'm wearing CIS today and it is beautiful!

I really like this one too!

I have it on with cherry + currant l/l.

 

Hmmm- I think I'm gonna rotate through all of my MAC reds next week. 7 days of red lippies!

The 167 from Hey Sailor :) I have no clue how I've gone through it this fast, part of me thinks I must be sleepwalking and eating it or something girlhaha.gif

I think that's why I needed Burgundy because it's bright. I like how it looks but maybe I will try with Vino. I wonder how DA would look with Nightmoth liner? Hmmmm...may have to try that!

Ohh ok! The brush I use is bigger but I only do one swirl and just pat it on my face and buff it out. I haven't used the HS 167 much!

 

 

My MM lipstick:

 

DA > LG > CIS > SI > PZ

 

I wear LG more on a daily basis, it's wonderful as a stain, but that's also good because I didn't feel the need to BU it as much as DA or CIS. This collection gave me courage to wear SI, even though I have the Iris version in use now + 1 BU, and I got a MM packaging BU. PZ just doesn't show up on me, but I got one because I wanted to complete the MM packaging lol. 

 

My favorite item from this collection is the beauty powder, followed by Preferred Blonde eyeshadow!

duckrodeo,

 

I like PB e/s too!

No, I don't like it - I LOVES IT!

Thank goodness presstoblend talked me into getting it.

I've been wearing the heck out of it with SG e/s. (DANG - Wish I would have purchased back-ups!!!)

See, she's persuasive like that! You know older sisters, All seeing, All knowing, All twisting of the arm! friends.gif

I've tried Deeply Adored, an adviser from Sephora said it was gorgeous ( and it is ! ) but so many people stared. Very few women wear bold lipsticks here, what a pity ! Red lipsticks are so beautiful ! I picked up Star Dust, L'Impatiente and Malice from Chanel, l'Impatiente looks pretty, I will try it soon and they can always stare !
