MAC x Archie's Girls (Betty & Veronica) Collection Discussion (February 2013) - Page 347

post #10381 of 12143
I skipped on all lip sticks except boyfriend stealer just because I had yet to buy a purple lip stick and I bought cream soda just because I liked the packaging lol but now I'm worried I should have bought Betty bright. Does anyone know how it compares to reel sexy? Sorry if that's been asked

There's a video on page 343 with the comparison.

I still think that if you have Absolute Power, Ronnie Red is not too drastically different, especially if you use a more pinkish red lip pencil underneath.

I actually have Absolute Power. I have bought so many reds these past few months I honestly don't need Ronnie Red, I'm just being "red" greedy.

And no it's not! It's Seductive Intent mattene. If you want to see the difference I can swatch it for you? I think someone said that are comparable/dupeable. But I'd keep both if they are! I'm not sure if I can secure a SI BU anymore.

 

 Y'all are bad! I am not buying Flatter Me!blah.gif

 

Seductive Intent looks good on you. No need to swatch I don't need to be trying to hunt down anything else. ohboy.gif

Flatter Me PM over Prom Princess. Don't you just love the pearly sheen?! I loooove it!

 

Like I said yesterday, if you haven't got it, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Lol. 

 

For reference I am Matchmaster 7.5 / Bobbi Brown Walnut 7.5/ MAC NC50 (as suggested by others)/ DiorSkin Nude Mocha 6.0

 

Both look AMAZING on you!

post #10385 of 12143
I really wish I used my spektra account more
ssad.gif I thought Betty bright would be too bright (I've never actually wear my bright corals) but it definitely looks like its wearable on tan skin
post #10386 of 12143

I finally got a chance to use my Caramel Sundae quad. I am also wearing Betty Bright and Cream Soda.

It's still showing up as "coming soon" on the website, maybe you can grab one when they FINALLY decide to restock it :)

So yes, I'm sure that at least at that mall, they couldn't have sold too much today since they had to evacuate   icon_eek.gif

 

ETA: It may have just been multiple leaks in the roof.  You know those initial news reports...the story keeps changing.  But the mall was definitely evacuated for whatever it was!

i didn't hear it 'collapsed' just that it had major roof leaks and they feared it collapsing but i could be wrong. Walt Whitman, the next mall near there closed due to gas leaks icon_eek.gif

Thank you so much @BeautyByLele!! I promise I'll get those other pics up, I just rested today lol. At least swatches! 

Thank you @Dilligaf!! It is definitely not a blush to pass up for blush newbies like me. <3 Have you gotten anything from this collection? 

FYI, you are super pretty! I love your natural hair! I can't wait till mines get's longer haha. But short-medium hair is cool too lol. Less product = more $$ for makeup. 

Boyfriend Stealer is amazingly creamy. I swatched it in store and was blown away by the creaminess. Though it's strange that it's like... sheer? But I think it's buildable. I haven't tried it on yet! LOL I know what you mean. That sounds like beyond gross lol. Plus it's all rainy, I bet it will catch raindrops lol. 

I know how you feel! I truly want Kiss and Don't Tell l/g but I need to save $$ for the bigger things in this collection. Besides! I think FG will be in stock, unless someone busts out some amazing swatches. sigh.gif

@hwdsprincess THANK YOU!! That is such a SWEET story! I bet your TA was beyond flattered (as I am!) That is such a blessing that she was still there because so many people have lost their jobs or had to relocate =/. BTW, from your picture Your skin looks smooth and pretty! But I totally agree with the SPF. I went to college in a desert area and discovered the results of sun discoloration/damage. SPF and Vitamin C. I think as long as you aren't living outside in 100 degree weather our skin should survive. Heat and Cold are crap for skin lol.

You gals are AWESOME! And for those considering Flatter Me, at least try it! Even if you have Passionately Tempted from TT, it only getting more magenta with layering, whereas this blush on my skintone turned more pink. 

Thank you...It's always hard to balance my natural hair product junkieism and my make up purchases lol

Your makeup really brought up your pretty eyes, great looks
post #10397 of 12143

so does anyone know generally how long it takes to restock after the "coming soon" on their website

post #10398 of 12143

My Archies Girls brushes are washed and I'm ready to report that:

 

  • the 226 is the scratchiest of them all. Not outrageous by any means; think along the lines of Sonia Kashuk travel brush sets. I can see what Temptalia means by bulbous, too.
  • the 167 is the softest. eyelove.gif It feels just like a permanent MAC face brush.
  • the 168 is cushy but tightly-packed
  • the 242 is like butter and did so well packing on pigment
  • the 266 is as stiff and soft as you would hope.

 

Now I have to stop myself from getting Lucky in Love pigment and Boyfriend Stealer (sheer, yes, but I think I like that).

Also, am I they only one who likes girl next door l/s from this collection? I am around NC20 and it looks great for a blue based pink and I love the milkiness of it.
I think I still need to get cream soda blush and I will be done with this collection..)

Oh no girl, you're not alone! smiles.gif it's actually my fav thing that I got. Beauty was such a wreck on me, so GND is everything I was hoping it would be.

oh that's a long time. I remember with the chen man collection it just restocked a few days later during the afternoon icon_eek.gif

post #10404 of 12143

This collection isn't getting released in Australia til 4 March. And I know it will be at the MAC counters in DJs, for any other Aussies waiting on this collection.

 

While I was at my local MAC counter I asked if they had Candy Yum Yum - the girl had never even heard of it. I told her it was one of the most popular lippies ever, and had just been made permanent (and I know it was released in the perm collection here in Jan). I am soo sick of the way the girls at MAC have absolutely no clue about upcoming collections - you'd think if they are really into MAC makeup then they'd be keeping up to date with things on the internet. And Australian retailers wonder why so many Aussies buy online from overseas - less than half the price, bigger range, and better service.

I have a question about Veronica's Blush for anyone who might be able to help. Can anyone compare it to Blonde MSF? I know the formulation is definitely different. But, what about the color? I've been really bummed I missed out on Blonde and loved it on other people. Now that I'm seeing Veronica's Blush, it seems like a really nice pearly pink and I'm wondering if it might be able to somewhat fill that gap in my collection. What do you ladies think?

 

amuse.gif

wavey.gifth_hello.gif wavey.gifKrystalAnne  So glad you've decided to join the chat.  This might be a tad late, and someone might have responded to your question about Blonde MSF vs Veronica's Blush. I did swatch them for you in spite of the different formula of the products, as you noted.   MSF Blonde has a gradient appearance, light to slightly darker, left to right horizontally.  I swatched across the entire surface of MSF Blonde & swirled in an arc, Veronica's Blush for comparison.  MSF-B packed a bigger punch in terms of color and sheen.  VB was slightly lighter in hue w/less sheen, making it more desirable as an over-all beauty powder, unless you choose to use the individual hearts as a blush.  I don't think VB will necessarily fulfill the function of MSF-B.

wavey.gifMichelle79.  I hope you're able to get RR.  I think it will look amazing on you.  So far it's my fav of the collection.  Good luck!!!

Also, it looks EXTRA gorgeous applied in a medium layer then blotted down - that's my favorite way with it by far!!! I wasn't even going to buy it, but when I tried it and then blotted it, I loved the look so much it got added to my haul right then and there.

I purchased, but have not yet worn Boyfriend Stealer.  I will definitely be trying it with Nightmoth lipliner and your suggested application technique.  Thanks for that!
