I am not surprised, because PZ is beautiful eyelove.gif

post #8134 of 8500

I STILL haven't figured out which one is my favorite lipstick from this collection. As soon as I think it's Deeply Adored, I fall back in love with CIS, and then suddenly one day I put Love Goddess together with an outfit and get a ton of compliments and shift to that one.

 

I think I get the most compliments on LG, but I'm more into the reds than the pinks overall with the clothes I own.....Oh heck, Runaway Red still is my most dearly beloved!!!!!

I loved them all. CIS is so gorgeous I dont want to use it! 

 

BTW, i am still waiting for my PZ to be delivered :D

I know i am late on this one. After attending an event where everything sold out right in front of me. I called my girl at a MACY's MAC to reserve CIS, DA and Preferred Blonde eyeshadow. i went bright and early on the launch date and walked out with my goodies as they were selling out.

WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!

Wow, you were fortunate. There were a countless number of issues w/this collection...cancelled pre-orders, long line and lots of craziness!    ohboy.gif

Bingo!  I love Runaway Red.  Will you be picking one up in the Making Pretty collection packaging/repromotion?

I know, I was reading everything that was happening on this site. A nightmare to say the least.

I can't pick a favorite either. I love them all for different reasons. They each add a pretty element to my face that's unique to each color, so I can't decide.

If that packaging was actually a lipstick CASE, that I could switch out my lippie du jour into, I would buy it - I don't think it is, though, so my plain BUs of Runaway Red will probably do. angelic.gif

R03 Passion Red is super super similar to Deeply Adored
R05 Hot Tango is virtually identical to MAC Red, which means is also super similar to Charmed I'm Sure
R09 Valentine is very close to Love Goddess, although LC is still lighter, the colours are similar though

please bear in mind that you have to take into account the finishes as well as the colours. Sephora lippies are more creamier, similar to MAC's satins, whereas CIS and DA are mattes so the colours are very close but the finishes are different. as you know you can make a satin or cream lipstick look quite matte if you apply it with a brush and then blot with some tissue

hope this helps someone:peace:

Thank you for taking the time to swatch and post this!! I could only find Love Goddess from my Mac Counters. I think I will settle for the dupes considering I don't wear reds a lot smiles.gif . TY TY TY!! <3

^ I like LG. It surprised me - such a pretty shade. I thought for sure people would swoon over LG more than DA and CIS (for the reds).

DA knocked my socks off! I really like that one.

I'm also starting to give Scarlet Ibis more love as well! I got the one from Apfel, not MM.

post #8146 of 8500

Peeps,

 

Give this a try: Showgirl over Blackground paint pot.

The black really! emphasizes the blue grey.  GORGEOUS!

I was working SG over Dangerous Cuvee pp and the grey was being emphasized. 

Blackground is so much better. Love it!

Just a quick thank you to both Peachtwist and Gracie90 who both did a CP for me so I could have back ups of the FM powder.  I have not stopped using it since I opened it.  I think of all the MAC products, this is my all time favorite.

 

I cannot believe I missed a restock.  I would have BU everything I could, the whole collection was gorgeous.  Well, perhaps best for my wallet I didn't get news of the restock in time...

If you ever run out of FM check out the Guerlain meteorites. I got the Perles du Dragon and they give a very similar effect to FM I might like it even better actually. I know they are expensive, but I think they would last for a very long time and therefore they are worth the money.

You know I never remember to use my Blackground paint pot to help emphasize lighter colors.  I love that you shared this.  I'm going to be more adventuresome in my color choice and combos!

Thanks Fiberluver!!!

Stunning!  Seven of Nine I haven't seen you in anything that I haven't liked.  Great color on you.  I'll be reaching for my Scarlet Ibis again soon...it's a gorgeous color for fall!

Actually I love all the colors of lipsticks, however, quite clear and the coral a Reel Sexy, Blossom Culture does not look too favorably amuse.gif

I am really trying not to get into the habit of Ballz.  I cannot afford to get all the LE versions and I am afraid I would quickly develop the addiction if I start but I do cherish the set I have.  On the other hand, if I find myself jonezing for more FM, I will look into the Ballz as a back up.  And they will probably be cheaper & more available than trying to get more of the MM powder on evilbay or other insanely priced resellers.

Well if you already have some ballz you're fine. I can understand that you're scared to get addicted, because I am too. But I'm really happy I have at least one version and that I have an alternative for FM if I'm going to need it. The ballz are about twice as much money here, but I think they will also last me at least twice as long so that's very nice.

post #8158 of 8500

Ok, all the talk of ballz has me chuckling lol. Sorry. I do love the packaging of the new meteorites tho and I have read good things about them. If I ever muster up the ballz to get ballz I will refer to them as such lolol.

Those meterorites have probably lasted so long because I conserve them, and I really don't need more, but the Dragon Perles I really want for the special packaging.  Having them does really make me luxurious.

The packaging is lovely indeed, but I'm sure others that will be released in future collections will have lovely packaging as well. I also like the spring perles and their packaging. Oh no I guess I have something new to collect:p
