yes you should def try macys, honestly I did not have hope in them as they had canceled my orders before, i asked for a search and send (think that's what it's called) and i ordered ronnie red and it actually shipped today.

~sigh~ I'm glad to be back home to play in makeup...  Oh how I wish car shopping was as easy as shoppiing for makeup...

I totallly get it.  Thanks for breaking it down.

My final haul:

Betty bright
Daddy's little girl
Boyfriend stealer
Kiss and don't tell
Feelin so good
Strawberry malt
Prom princess
Cream soda

Loves: cream soda, strawberry malt, kiss and don't tell, daddy's little girl
Likes: Betty bright and prom princess
What the hell was I thinking?: boyfriend stealer and feelin so good. They are very gothy on me, so they will get limited use.

I was tempted by the quads, but with the oz palettes and the nars god created woman palette, I had to prioritize. Mildly tempted by the pearlmattes, but I want one or both from baking beauties, and also the nars finishing powder (thanks Elegant :-), and how many face powders do I really need? REALLY tempted by the brushes, but I'm super picky about brushes, and I have some top priority ones on my Hakuhodu list, so I couldn't justify them.

Does anyone know how Veronica's Blush would look as a highlight on pale girls? I really want to buy it, but I don't think I'd like the color as a blush on me. So I'm just wondering if it could work as a highlight for someone in the NC 15-20 range. smiles.gif

post #10180 of 12143

why can't i stop buying from this collection?!?!?! all i wanted was 2 lipsticks and 1 pearlmate :(

 

thank goodness my hubby sees my makeup collection like his tool collection... never ending and everything is different, LOL

post #10182 of 12143

I'm nc15 and I use it as a highlight. I like to use it with pink blushes like dollface or rosy outlook

My DLG was delivered today. Problem is, I won't be home until tomorrow. :-( I hope I love it.
post #10184 of 12143

I love the Spoiled Rich quad! I might have to keep the extra I accidently ordered as a back up now. Today I wore Daddy's Little Girl with it. Also Veronica's Blush and Prom Princess. <3

Co-Sign. Not all that crazy about this collection although I hauled the lipsticks (of course). I don't wear lipglasses often, at all. I have so many untouched because I like the look of the lipstick on it own and I don't have time to touch up my makeup during the day as the case with lipglasses. But something about this color keeps making me want it.. hence why it was sitting in my shopping bag this morning. th_wallbash.gif

Is anyone similar to my skin tone loving Flatter Me? I'm trying to make myself like it since I purchased it icon_eek.gif

ahhhh same with me. when i went to MAC  i didn't ask for betty bright, the sales lady put one in my bag (i was charged) and i didn't know until i got home. NOW, it's my favorite lipstick from the collection. LOVE it!!!! I really like the K&DT lipglass but i don't want to use it over BB and i'm not sure i'd wear it much on it's own. Maybe i should just buy it and decide later before it sells out th_rolleye0014.gif

I sure did! It's subtle however, so it depends what you're looking for. Several mac mua have told me similar shades would not show up, or would be so subtle on me 'there wouldn't be any point', but I think that's only if you want your blush to look a little more obvious. For my everyday looks, I like buffing a shade like cream soda, legendary or immortal flower on the apples of the cheeks for a bit of an ethereal glow.

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

my cousin snapped a couple of pics last night of the two of us (i had done her makeup for her before we went out), so I'll see if I can get her to send me one!

That sounds beautiful!

post #10192 of 12143

I got Flatter Me and Ronnie Red :)

Waiting on Daddys little girl and Betty bright from two swaps!

I wanted to say though, that RR is almost the same IMO to the Crimson Lipmix, idk if anyone has said so before.

If you love RR, you can always order Crimson from the Pro store :)

post #10193 of 12143

LOVE!!! Totally working for you!!!  pretty.gif

Well between being out of town and broke I finally got to haul from this. Yay! I ordered Spoiled Rick, Veronica's Blush, Strawberry Malt, and K&DT from MAC with second day so should receive them Tuesday I hope. I ordered Girl Next Door from Belk as I missed out on all the lippies. I hope I get it from them. I'm kinda liking DLG but I have Night Blooming and Outrageously Fun so not sure I "need" it kwim? I am grateful for all the info on this site and even though I missed like a hundred pages from this thread I am glad to be able to look up people's swatches. There was no way I was gonna skip this unless it was out of my control lol.

Thank you! I took a gamble with snob- every girl I've seen it on has been young and bronzed skin. I'm so pale it's scary but I love it regardless.

Glad you were able to haul from Archie's Girls.  The photos posted here were pretty amazing...the ladies all looked so lovely in their products. pretty.gif  ENJOY! your goodies. mac_boxday.gif

You might just try calling around to random MAC stores in your state. They'll ship to wherever you live. Also, Nordstrom is really great for getting hard to find things. If you go in and they don't have what you want, they'll search the inventory of the other stores in the country to see if it's in stock elsewhere, then have the product shipped to you.

I couldn't iagree.gif with you more! It's all a bunch of bullshit!

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 just got glasses/contacts for the first time a month ago. I ordered my contacts from coastal.com, as well as got my first pair of glasses from there for free! Great company!
