I hope its a true black with pearl and not micro glitter. Blue, not purple.

I hope so too. Even though I am skipping the pigments for now.

Shiny black is far from special in my book!

  Shiny black is the exact glossy look Victoria Secret make-up  etc has been packaged in for a long time now. I posted that on the GD thread back thentrue.gif when I compared my old and new lipglosses

I don't see it as people getting stressed over the increase. Most of us expected it to happen. Of course, more taxes are being taken out of paychecks, my rent is going up again and it just went up three months ago, transportation expenses, medical, food, etc. I think it's just a sign of the times. My issue is that with everything going up, salaries aren't and people need to adjust their finances accordingly.

I may skip the lipsticks altogether because I already have soooo many. 2012 was a great year for lippies, so 2013 is going to be the year to use them up! Right now I'm interested in the Spoiled Rich quad, Veronica's pigments, and the pearlmattes. Can't wait for the color story!

Good point sherm....   i'm still tempted though.  I'll just have to wait and see.

true dat!!

Im really just upset because if the lippes are that much everything else will be more and i wont be able to get everyhting i want. thats the real reason im upset lol. i just hope to get my must haves and then pick up the rest later if there is anything!

The $17 price tag for the lipsticks might make me re-think what I'll get from this collection.  I'm taking a trip the week after the event so I'm trying not to dip into my trip budget if I can help it.

Save yo monies!!!

so then the week before for Pro stores? or for all at the same time?

post #1782 of 12101

i don't think i have a problem with the lipsticks being 17 dollars. Somehow or another i'd spend it doing something, so i might as well spend it getting lipstick lol. 

 

Just want the Veronica Quad and a lipstick or two. Not really interested in the Betty side...im for sure it's my inner childhood who disliked Betty reading the comics saying this hahaha

That is a good point. Money spent on makeup is still money well spent, mostly.

I also agree, there might be a few things on the Betty side that I'm interested in, but I'm am mostly Team Veronica. Her colours seem to just be a little more bad-ass, and they suit her character well.

Normally it'd be realeased the 5th, possibly the 4th, even as early as late the 3rd.

Normally.

Thanks for the reply!

$17...not too too bad. But I'm going to be really careful, and not go too hog wild lol. Need to use what I have! Plus planning on going to more concerts this year. Then a Vegas trip/birthday/ wedding anniversary in July.

Normal emails are sent out anywhere from tues-thurs announcing the online launch.

It's easier to check on here to find out when it launches online. Lately a lot of items are sold out online by the time people receive their email notifications.

Found these face charts!! I'm guessing the first lipstick is "Boyfriend Stealer" and the second is "Daddy's Little Girl"?

post #1793 of 12101

th_drool.gif.....OMG,OMG,OMG eyelove.gif

 

 

Team purple all the way th_e2cloud9.gif

 

 

Yes, the first lippie should be BS...and the Rich Spoiled Quad + the pink Veronica blush and her Pearlmatte Powder heart.gif

(which is called "Veronica' s Blush" if I remember right).

BS is waaay darker than violetta. It's also straight purple. There's no fuchsia in it like violetta. And yes, betty's is the peachy one.
