Last night I had my makeup done at my local store, and the mua did a beautiful take on the main veronica look (adapted to my eye shape). She used frozen violet as the base, which I'm not keen on buying (too many open paint pots!), and focused the purple on the outside corner and crease. I asked her not to do the red lip becasue I somehow usually end up with red lips at these makeup sessions, so she paired it up with Oh, oh, oh. Very pretty...but going by other members' comments how it is similar to glamour daze I decided to skip it. I was so happy with the results - hope I can duplicate it at home!

My glamour daze lipstick is still in the box. I don't think I ever opened it, orr looked at it after getting it out of the black MAC shipping box. I forgot I even had it before your post. Need to cut down on impulse buys and stick to sure-hit colors in a collection. I've started doing that since I skipped both AG quads for the reason that I have dupes of almost all of the colors in my MAC palette.

Yeah, I wore only contacts for 10 years or so, but my allergies have gotten worse and any time I wear contacts my eyes water like crazy. I've been doing mainly glasses since then since it's cheaper and I don't have to worry about my makeup going everywhere.

 That might have been me, but it was for the Caramel Sundae quad. Bare minerals "The Next Big Thing" not for the Spoiled Rich 

 

Temptalia compared "dreammaker" in the Caramel Sundae quad to "rising star" in the Bare Minerals. Here's the link. (credit to : Temptalia.com)

There is a Pink e/s in the Chanel Harmonie Du Soir quad that is just lovely.

------Music starts, cue John & Yoko----All we are saying is GIVE PINK A CHANCE girlhaha.gif

 

the Chanel Harmonie Du Soir quad is by far my most favorite quad ever and that pink is the best pink i own!!  I do really like the caramel sundae quad too now at least i have something to switch off with until summer. i'm so glad i got it...

 

thank you to all of you with your beautiful pictures of it.

I am under 30 inches of snow and all i thought about was... how many people are going to be so mad that the malls and MAC stores are closed due to weather. the big event was for last night and today so that means half the people didn't go yet.. oh my. i'd be so upset.

I tried Boyfriend Stealer but it came off way to vampy. IDK, I may give it another shot...

I think I watched your Youtube video this morning.  Was that you?

So you liked Cream Soda on you?  Maybe I should try it.

 

I got Mall Madness yesterday.  It puts me in the mind of Narcissus.  No, I know it's not the same.  Mall Madness is a bit lighter but it's similar in feel.

wasn't there an 'evil quad' or something mentioned with similar colors?

 

i remember a few saying they were getting the oz ones instead due to better value :)

Thank you for all of the responses.   Violoasphere,I think it was you, but I don't know why I read spoiled rich. LOL

yup, I have those two, and they are very similiar. but the blackened purple, I don't think I have a dupe for.  Still undecided about getting it.

 

Did you take a pic of the look the MA  did? I'd love to see how they did the adapted eye look.

I'm also still waiting on Slow Nordie's as well for my Betty Bright *sigh* took them two days to finally ship and I can't even track it. So far I have now 11 items from the collection...thud.gif

Okay so I NEED to be finished with this collection.
I picked up Flatter Me PM
Oh,oh,oh l/s
Ronnie Red (the 1 out of 3 left!) L/s
Prom Princess Blush
Mall Madness l/g
Strawberry Malt l/g
And im waiting for Nordies!!

The brush set is so cute. I already have the full size 226 and 266. I'm happy that I don't have most of the brushes. I was so distracted by the hearts when I ordered that I wasn't even paying attention to see what brushes come in the set. bigheart.gifbigheart.gifbigheart.gif eyelove.gif bigheart.gifbigheart.gifbigheart.gif

So, do you think the quality is good? I've see a couple complaints about hearts and bristles falling off.

I think I'm going to just find a blackened blueish purple like Ron Ron Run...  then I'll officially have this quad without spending $44.  Or just get the kat von d beethoven palette.

FWIW, I have never had a problem with Zenni or Coastal. Prescriptions have been correct and the frames have held up longer than more expensive ones *coughpradacoughcough* 

 

To get this back on Archie's though, I think I'm going to try to hunt down a brush set. My MAC told me they were sure they'd sell out the day of the release, but I'm not sure if they have. I can deal with a few splayed hairs.

I am loving my new goodies! Im wearing, eyes: caramel sundae, rich experience liner. Face: FM BP, porcelain pink to highlight and cream soda lips: magenta liner, outrageously fun topped with nicki 2 ls. <3

I checked this morning and it looks as if it's just now departing Louisville, KY. I have no idea what that holdup was but I'm glad to see it's at least moving now. I was giving them until this upcoming Monday before I hopped on the phone. 
post #10130 of 12144

Ugh, so here I am stalking the website for a possible restock to grab my precious Ronnie Red and it's such a hassle that I went ahead and phoned in an order to a MAC store in far-flung state that still has a bunch of them in their inventory. I got free shipping too. I can relax I'm happy!

Thanks! I made it to work, thank God! It took me 2+ hours to clean off the car and clear a path...  Crazy!

They canceled the event that was scheduled for today here. My sister was not happy! lol (They did call on Thursday night to cancel.)

Your Welcome:)

I actually did the same thing. I just purchased dreammaker (since it is a repromote) online for $14 instead of spending $30 or $44 on the quads since I have dupes of all the other colors for the CS quad. But I think BE quad is on my wishlist because the colors are so pretty and the reviews I read and watched about them are very good.

Yes, I just discoverd Spektra this past October!! And SO happy I did even though I'm terribly late.

 

I can see how you would of become apathetic because I picked up that vibe also here and there. Yes I also ordered on the 4th! So I'll go check my PO Box tuesday if I don't receive tracking info by then thank you:) 

 

My List:

Both Blushes

Flatter Me

Designer Purple eyeliner

BB

DLG

BS

Oh, oh, oh

Mall Madness

Kiss&Don't Tell

Summersweetheart

*And I orderd online Dreammaker eyeshadow from the Caramel Sundae quad* I'm including that in my list because I would have never purchased it if it wasn't for this collection lol

 

P.S. I wore BS alone but today I wore it paired up with Viva Glam VI and it calmed it down quite a bit for a nice daytime look. I want to get the most out of it before winter is over with and I can no longer wear such a rich dark color

 

*As reference I am a NC 35-40

Love this look!

post #10139 of 12144

Ahhh I haven't been around much to post - I don't know if I'll ever catch up on this whole thread!

 

I did pick up my goodies yesterday at last:

 

Ronnie Red

Boyfriend Stealer

Betty Bright

Mall Madness (looks awesome dabbed on top of Ronnie Red)

Veronica quad

Cheers My Dear pigment

 

and Veronica's Blush pearlmatte x 2 (it's as good as Elude, if a little pinker!)

 

I wound up skipping the pastel green pigment - it's getting closer to what I am looking for but still not quite green enough when applied. I want the brilliant green of a peacock feather when it catches the light.

 

I hope everyone is happy with their new toys! I know I wound up buying more than expected, due to the next level pearlmattes and the dense color of the eye shadow quad!

post #10140 of 12144

How are the pigments from this collection?
