MAC x Archie's Girls (Betty & Veronica) Collection Discussion (February 2013) - Page 63

post #1861 of 12144

I'm losing interest in this collection, but I want more info.  I think right now I'm only really interested in Betty Bright.  I love pearlmattes, but I feel like I have too many cheek products and not enough time to wear them.  Maybe the green piggie will blow me away, though.  Kinda hope so flower.gif

YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! **FAINTS*** FINALLY!!!! A straight f'ing purple lipstick without any pink, red or fuchsia in it. I wish it had some bleu, but I'll take straight up purple. MAC really should do more straight up purples.eyelove.gif

 

I hope we get the color story today or at least this week. I hate waiting.

I'm quite happy it's more purple than Violetta. I enjoy my Violetta, but it's too pinkish for me.

You dont want to kno lol 

 

Try any eye brush that is dense (tightly packed, or not fluffy).  I also use the suggested 242, but if you don't have it, I've heard of people using the 239 as well.  You just need a brush that is going to hold on to the pigment.  I find that it tends to fall all over the place if you use too fluffy a brush, lol.  But take a look at whatever eye brushes you have and see if you can make one of those work!  Have fun!!  heart.gif

Generally speaking, I agree 100%...at the closest store to me though, people are not so daring.  Last I saw, SW and FF were the only lippies left from the Strength collection!  Although now that I think about it, SI sold out before NI from Taste Temptations...so I wonder how things are going to play out with AG?  Should be interesting!

You are going to the event, right? So you should be on the safe side anyway.

Haven't decided yet.  Leaning towards not going.  As entertaining as it is to observe the madness, I'd prefer not to be in the middle of it!  If it takes forever for this collection to launch online though, I'll go down to the store on launch day.  The one closest to me isn't have a pre-release event, so that should work out fine.

I wanted my VGN2 before this came out dammit! I need a fix lol and I will not be buying VGN2 at the same time. I need all Available funds for this collection!!!!

the pink Veronica lipgloss is mall madness. it looks different in different pictures it that's the one I'm getting! the reddish one is probably strawberry malt and then there's a dark purple one. I wonder what color her np will be its the only items we haven't seen a picture of yet.

hey Erine1881, do any of the colors from the spoiled rich quad look familiar to you?

on another note I tried using a pigment last night.... not good lol I made a huge mess all over my face. so as pretty as these ones are..... I'm going to pass on them.
as of right now anyways lol

 

Thanks Naughtyp! winks.gif It looks so different in these photos, like they are 2 different lipglosses and not the same one! I wonder which photo depicts the more accurate color hmm.gif :

It's gonna be between the two. The top pic is taken indoors, the bottom is with a flash. Flash always brightens colours, while indoor pics (lack of natural light) gives a bit of shadow.

I wouldn't have minded a darker Go For It lippie. This one seems different and unique. I may have to pick up two depending on the swatches. Come on swatches and color story already!!!!!!angry.gif

It probably depends on the shipping method as well and how quickly you want your stuff. I usually go with overnight.

I know right? The photos are misleading.... This deserved to be at least a satin.

It still looks quite pigmented though...

Aww shucks! I agree with KMQE716. At least a satin would have been amazing. Still going to get it though. I can't resist purples.

We want the colour story, we want the colour story!!
post #1884 of 12144
I back up from lustre. I think it may be a creamsheen? It is pigmented but it reminds me of yung rapunxel now that I'm looking at it. Idk y'all I'm on the fence and also sorta annoyed bc the pictures we have seen I think are not true to color at all

girlhaha.gif I can agree somewhat. I do find lustres very drying on my lips. I prefer other finishes. If this is a cremesheen I will be okay with it, but I would have preferred satin, matte or amplified finishes. I also would have preferred the lippie darker since it appears to be a nice deep darkish purple shade. Oh MAC! What are you doing to us????blah.gif
