same for me!! I stay away from corally colors as they usually don't look good on me but since it has so much pink in it i'm able to make it work. so happy with them!! The flatter me REALLY does go perfect with them, you should take that last look before they are gone angelic.gif

now i want the nail polish too icon_eek.gif

Will have to get my items on the 7th March when they come out in my local store.

 

Wow, that's definitely not okay. They took your money, they should have sent your order out. You should contact them and let them know the situation.

I have done plenty of times since the order but they're just saying the bank has hold
of the money because they refused the payment then my bank is sending me to them it's like a yoyo! so I'm going to my bank today to see what is going on as it's a complete joke now.

Hopefully I get it sorted.

My money is now all sorted woo!

th_sign_woot.gifmac_boxday.gif And I got everything I ordered! It's a relief to see they actually seem to have control over their stock these days! Despite most things selling out rather quickly in the UK.
 

post #11198 of 12144

Yaaay! Just received my package from MAC UK too.mac_boxday.gif

I got Flatter Me, Veronica's Blush, Prom Princess, Spoiled Rich quad, Betty Bright and Daddy's Little Girl. At a first glance BB looks similar to something I already have. DLG looks less bright than I imagined. I cannot wait to test them when I get home / tomorrow. Now to get my hands on Ronnie Red (probably) and Strawberry Malt (definately). I was going to get BS and perhaps Feeling So Good, but I think I'm going to skip, especially since I ordered from NARS last Sunday and yesterday and added Amour, Desire, Mata Hari, Exhibit A, Taj Mahal, Zen and Cactus Flower to my (NARS) blush stash.th_thstars.gif NARS + mac_atemywallet.gif

What did you get? They shipped quite soon this time. I ordered last Wednesday, so 6 days is not too bad. When I ordered my S3/C3, Vera and Chenman stuff I had to wait 2 1/2 weeks or so for that devine package wtff.gif

NARS and Archie!goodjob.gif

 

I got BB + Kiss Don't Tell, Daddy's Little Girl, Lucky in Love, Cream Soda, Flatter Me, Caramel Sundae, and the mirror! (And a sample of Strobe Cream - my first sample & SC ever!)

 

I think I also ordered last Wednesday. So we had the same delivery time! I think I get my stuff usually in 7 or 6 days now. Once it took a bit longer due to a 4-day weekend or something like that and once I got my stuff the same week  - ordered Wednesday I think and the box was with me on Friday pm - and this was the Marilyn Collection of all collections! amazed.gif

post #11201 of 12144

that's how i finally got DLG...off ebay :(
 

post #11202 of 12144

That sounds like a fairly conservative but beautiful haul--I am afraid to ask how much the Oz prices were for the brush set!

Nice haul! K+DT also has my attention... Hmmm... must... resist...

 

I believe once I placed an order on a Thursday and received it on Monday. That was the fastest -> Très Cheek collection. Weird that MM shipped so quickly! Perhaps they were prepared for the upcoming massacre...

Here's Cream Soda blush on me (NC3035 for ref).  (Sorry for the crappy lighting and iPhone photo quality)

I like the shade but I have to REALLY pack it on to build up any noticeable color.  I thought maybe it'd be a nice spring/summer "no makeup" look blush, but when I get closer to NC35 in the summer, I doubt it will show up at all... and I don't want to be packing blush on when it's hot outside.

I might try it layered over Out For Fun Casual Color cream blush.... 

Anyone else around my skintone having success with CS?  How are you using it if so?  Thanks!

imho, nc20 for reference, Cream soda may look hella light in the pan, but when i applied on myself, it was surprisingly more pigmented and more orange than I thought it would be on me. It looked almost like immortal flower in the pan, but definitely way much more orange on me when applied than immortal flower.  Just my one cents worth

post #11206 of 12144
DLG never really reappeared on any of the sites again ssad.gif

Same here (nc20 as well) and I think it looks way more pigmented on. It's my favorite blush of the moment. smiles.gif

I know. I finally broke down and got Strawberry Malt of Evilbay. I was hoping for a restock and maybe there will be later? But, I got it for only three dollars more than getting off the MAC sight so, not too bad. noworry.gif

wohoo pretty lady!!! I think it looks very nice on you very natural I'm darker than you a little and I loved the fact that it's light but noticeable.

Awww thanks babe!  I do like it, I just had to pack soooo much on to get it to show up... I was hoping it would be a pretty summer blush.  But when I'm darker and it's hot out, I don't think I'll want to pack on that much blush!  I keep debating whether to keep it or pass it on to my pretty, pale, blonde little sister. CS is such a lovely shade I hate to see it wasted in my stash if I never reach for it!  It will look gorgeous on her!

Here is my haul pompom.gif

 

 

I am soooooooo in love with my goodies th_e2cloud9.gif

 

 

 

 

 

And I did also receive my Betty head scarf bigheart.gif

 

post #11213 of 12144

Went to NZ Archie's Girls preview today! Found out the department store I was at were the only people doing previews of the collection, so feeling pretty lucky!

 

Ended up paying $61 ($50 USD) for Flatter Me and $45 ($37 USD) for Ronnie Red. Ronnie Red, oh my - It's honestly the best red EVER on my lips! And Flatter Me is just adorable, I love how it looks on my NC20 skin (I also found out they only had 4 stocked in-store, so was keen to snap it up!).

 

Also, as a wee surprise, I got a small heart-shaped tin with some cinnamon mints inside since I had booked a preview session :) Definitely a good day!

post #11214 of 12144

Yesterday I went in my nearest mac store for concealer, and of course, although I thought I was done with this collection, I stopped at the Archie's Girls display and they still had Girl Next Door which I have constantly reassured myself I'm fine without. But I ended up getting it along with Hip N Happy Lip Pencil. They go together pretty well, and I wore the combo today. They had a Strawberry Malt on the Betty display with her face on it instead of Veronica's. I thought that was kind of funny.

 

The girl helping me complimented my blush (which was Prom Princess). So if anyone light skinned (I'm NC15 but I lean more neutral) is still on the fence about that blush and you can get your hands on it, I definitely say go for it! Love it with Play it Proper.

 

How have you ladies been rocking Lucky in Love pigment? I love it, but I'm not sure what kind of look to go for with it!

post #11215 of 12144

Ooh! Nice eyelove.gif

The pink/coral on your scarf reminds me of betty bright!

Well if you know you're not going to use as much maybe you can give it to her, I'd try again lol I honestly didn't even care for it, I wanted prom princess I got it but don't care for it think it's too bright I'm about nc 35-40 I think lol but I LOVE CS surprised for a color I didn't care at all about I think it's a perfect spring color, summer time I hardly ever wear makeup just some bronzer : )
post #11217 of 12144

Yes, it really matches BB perfectly!

 

I am so happy that I found this head scarf for wearing with my Betty goodies cheerleader.gif

A MA at MAC did a look for me using LiL pigment and it turned out nice. She used the Caramel Sundae palette, with the pink on the lid, light brown in the crease, and yellow as a highlight. Then she put LiL over the lid and finished with winged liner. I added Lord It Up pearlglide on the lower lashline and I got several compliments on the look that day!
