Oh I hope so.  I have a backup of Watch Me Shimmer, but not Force of Love.

I actually want BS.  I need to replace my Seasoned Plum from Daphne Guinness.  And yes, I may do a back up.  I want to get the Veronica quad, but I heard stories on how quads are crummy.

Definitely, but if it looks anything like my avatar then it's a skip for sure.

Lots of product photos but very few swatches.  blink.gif

This reminds me of Marilyn. Which means it'll be a huge fight to get the stuff we want. I hope there's more stock tho.

found this on instagram!

It's lovely, but it looks like a cross between Poised and Immortal Flower. I can skip.

I agree times infinity! I hope MAC learns that this hype is really effective and they need to keep stocked. They're not profiting from products being resold on eBay. They profit when customer buy from them.

I'm for it either way, of course.

 

The swatch photo reminds me a bit of Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss No. 15 which is greyer than BS, i think, and shimmery. It's an unusual color. I had seen it in photos, but the Rimmel US website only lists five colors: 1, 4, 8 12, 14.

http://www.rimmellondon.com/us/en/products/lasting-finish-kate-moss/

So I first bought No. 04, because on the Rimmel website the swatch looks grey-mauve. But it isn't, it's a deep dark plum-purple, and very close to YR in color.

 

This link to the Canadian section lists all 15 colors:

http://www.rimmellondon.com/ca/en/products/kate-moss-lasting-finish-lipstick/

Be warned the swatch colors are waaaay off.

 

I guess i lucked out finding #15 in the US.

The swatch photo is actual lol i took the photo. 

 

I showed it to some other pals and they agreed that it looks very similar to Kate Rimmel #4 tho i have no idea what that looks like. 

 

I can take some more pics if you all would like!

I really want it to look like the color in the Face Chart. But i actually don't care if i end up looking like a member of the Crypt Kicker Five.

That's MY HAND!

and those pics are not filtered..and i took them on my iPhone...

So, it was pretty sheer then, huh?

 

Do you recall what the finish was?

 

Considering this is purple we're talking about, any dish is deeply appreciated! bouquet.gif pompom.gif

So far, most of the photos we've seen (aside from your photos) were filtered (which sucks), so the wow-in-your-face purple (like the face chart) is probably not true to color.

It doesn't say at the bottom, just says "sample". I just took some photos with my big camera so maybe you all can see the color better. it's def. dark, like eggplant.

 

Sheer on a scale to 1-10 maybe like a 3-4. that's why i said maybe not a lustre but a creamsheen? or whatever would be in btwn lustre and creamsheen that's what this is

yeah which is why i was excited but then when i opened it i was like "What is this???"

 

i mean it aint THAT bad but....i just am over the dark lip right now bc of course spring is coming up. So i just really have no use for it. if i didn't have this now i would of never picked it up at the counter.

Boyfriend Stealer swatched once on the top

 

Boyfriend stealer swatched twice on the bottom

 

again the texture feels soft, it's a good amount of shine, hence why i said maybe not a lustre but a creamsheen. i don't own a lot of those but i know it's not any of the other ones i usually buy lol

If this is anything like Marilyn ,mac will sure save me money. I did not buy a single thing from Marilyn because it was up online at 3am and sold out at my mac store within half an hour. Do I regret it not really,cause mac always comes with red lippie. There has been at least one in every collection.

I think i'm in the minority here...Going to definitely pick up boyfriend stealer. I'm very fair so even the sheerness of the 1x swatch will probably show up nicely on my lips. And then swatch 2x for night time. :)

I'm impressed that it's hand drawn! Those are some skills!

Sounds like the sheerness level of Apres Chic? 'Could be nice, but yeah, a little oddball for Spring. I guess it's a question of comparing with stuff like Yung Rapunxel. I still think we'll eventually see a really bright purple this year. I'd be more surprised if we didn't, than if we did.  Just gotta keep waiting & watching tumbleweed.gif
