I'm not sure if i want anything from this collection :(

Maybe the cream soda blush if it's not like immortal Flower (i have 2.) 

and depending on swatches a face powder.

I already have OOO so I guess I can skip it. I really like it though..
post #2404 of 12101

Thanks for the info! GND being a Lustre kinda makes me want it again. I'm wondering how it compares to VG Gaga1.

I'm going to assume these are the l/g - I could be wrong because description was cut off

Kiss & Don't Tell - Bright coral
Summer Sweetheart - Light peach
Stay Sweet - Light lavender pink
post #2412 of 12101

So they changed Sweet Something to Oh, Oh, Oh?  Disappointing.

Yay! One lippie I know I can skip! Much as I like OOO I definitely don't need a BU.

Me too. I haven't got IF or AG so Cream Soda has to be mine. I still want AG though.

 

Love the new avatar btw. Kittehs rule! love.gif

post #2416 of 12101

I'll get myself Oh, Oh, Oh (definitely a safe bet) and probably's Betty's Pearlmatte. I'm hoping there will be swatches of that so I can see it beforehand.

 

I'd love some advice from the neutral to cool toned among you; I'm trying to decide what to get my daughter for her bday. She loves Archie and is a neutral NC25 with blonde hair and green eyes. She looks great in fuschia and other bright cool tones. I'd like to get her one of the quads (I know she'd love it). The purple would probably be gorgeous on her but she tends to wear neutrals. Maybe Betty's quad. The e/s will be fine, but any thoughts on whether DLG would be a good lippie shade for someone of her colouring? As reference, she looks amazing in Love Goddess, Fire Sign and her HG lippie, Sequin.

I'll get all of the lipsticks and lipglasses, both blushes, both pearlmattes, all 4 pigments and Veronica's quad...I think that's all, but it's hard to remember everything with all the info being spread thru many posts.

CVS takes makeup back - at least here in California. I bought a lipstick that was rancid (eeeew!!!!) and i took it back the next day. They didn't ask why i was returning it, just took it back and credited my account. There's a 30 day limit and you have to have your receipt.

Maybe I'll give them a call this weekend and see what they say.  Might be worth another trip down there if they say yes...

 

I went by my local MAC today and they did not have Archie yet, my favorite enabler MUA even apologized. She had no idea when they would be getting any Archie stuff in.

If you can live without the comic book packaging, both colors are perm.

 

And i thought the Betty Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner would be Lord It Up. I want LIU but don't see a good reason to spend more for the fancy packaging, since Archie is ok, but i'm not really fannish.

post #2422 of 12101
One busy day at work and I miss so much excitement!

I love BBB's swatches and now I'm positive that I need Mall Madness. It's been just that here at work and thankfully I'm hustling enough that my paycheck just might be big enough to accommodate my hual from this collection.

I'd say stars n rockets, vibrant grape, contrast and typographic. Skip for me!

Between daddy's little girl and oh oh oh, which would y'all pick?
post #2425 of 12101

I already have Oh, Oh, Oh. It's a lovely shade, but the staying power isn't great.

post #2426 of 12101

I'm little confused. How many lipsticks for each girl?

I have O3 and a BU. The BU came later when it was in the goodbyes section months after its debut. I don't use it that often, but it is a nice MLBB with shimmer, so that's why I backed it up :) but I'm gonna pass on the Archie packaging for sure. 

 

My list so far:

 

Betty Bright lipstick

Girl Next Door lipstick

Prom Princess blush

Cream Soda blush

Betty Quad

 

Though more swatches and info might sway me for more. Right now I'm pretty satisfied at how short my list is th_wink3.gif
