MAC x Archie's Girls (Betty & Veronica) Collection Discussion (February 2013) - Page 103

post #3061 of 12143

Can someone post a swatch of original(MAC Me Over collection) Oh, Oh, Oh l/s next to this new one in Archie's Girls? Favorably NC/W5-30. TIA

post #3062 of 12143

Since seeing some of these swatches I've definitely lost some products on my WL, oh poo =(  Looks like its 2 lipsticks, one blush, two glosses, and maybe a liner.  Fudge nuggets.

I'm sorry! she is just a stupidhead who thinks that by having the "new" stuff out and on her page that she is ahead of the game and she's not! i don't get what's the purpose to wanting to be the "first" to have something...if you want to be first go find the stuff and physically have it versus STEALING! 

 

I hope she's mad and walks in a pile of dog poop and is madder. hmph. lol

Anyways on another note, Karen's blog is too cute! and finally some real swatches! List has altered a little bit, now we wait 

post #3071 of 12143

I really like the whole presentation that Karen did with the Comics, so creative!

post #3072 of 12143

I think I just added DLG to my list.

post #3073 of 12143

I love Karen's blog....she really did a great job with her postings on this collection. Hasn't changed my mind much about skipping but I love that she put a lot into her pics swatches and story :)

post #3074 of 12143

Still a skip for me! (I'm holding on for dear life though lol)

 

S/N: I freaking love Karen's blog. It's fresh, creative and fun! One of the first blogs I discovered. She is a top blogger :)

n00b.

 

I personally like pigments because they provide an interesting color base to start putting shadows on top to make them more 'vivid'.  I have lids that are just crazy oily so my combo of paint pot + pigment helps the eyeshadows stay on me for quite awhile.  I really don't think these would look ashy on you at all pretty.gif

 

Just saw swatches are up so let me grab some coffee and settle in to look at 'da goodies' in action.

post #3076 of 12143

Karen makes me want more stuff! Which is not a good thing, but I'm glad to see all the products and swatches!rasta.gifAnd she's a great blogger!
 

post #3077 of 12143

Can I just say how much I LOVE Karen's reviews and swatches? eyelove.gif

 

I've managed to refine my list a bit and got reinforcement I want nothing from the Betty collection.  I thought about getting the black pearlglide pencil but I have Black Russian which is black w/ silver and I love it.  The Black w/ gold just isn't me.

 

It's still all about the Veronica collection for me

 

1) Spoiled Rich Eye Quad -- Gonna give it a try.  Last year's Wonder Woman eye palettes really turned me off w/ the awful quality.  I'm a sucker for purples and while I'm in love with MUFE #92, I've also come to be very fond of e/s palettes.

 

2) Lipsticks - Yep, getting BS, DLG and RR.  Ronnie Red looks so ridiculously blue red that i gotta have it. Strangely enough I have no blue red MAC lipsticks at all. Don't like MAC Red, Russian Red looks like crap on me and I loathe how Ruby Woo feels.

 

3) Lipglasses - I need all of 'em, especially Strawberry Malt.

 

4) Prom Princess blush -- it's pink and as such I must have it

 

5) Designer Purple and Petrol Blue eyeliners - I need backups and Petrol Blue is one of the sickest MAC eyeliners I own.  My current Petrol Blue is a sorry-looking stub.

 

I'm skipping the Pearlmatte powder from this collection because I already have Play it Proper beauty powder and my Salsarose blush looks close enough to the Frankly Scarlet used in the compact.  I was going to get both pigments but...I've got Cinderfella which is such a sick silver glittery black which blends amazingly with any color.

post #3078 of 12143

 

I was able to swatch the collection last night. Lipsticks

post #3079 of 12143
Karen really has outdone herself!

Luckily for me my list is only getting shorter. :P

Boyfriend Stealer lipstick - Deep Blackened Plum (Cremesheen) - if it's not the same as Dramatic Encounter
Betty Bright lipstick - Light Vibrant Peach (Satin) - if it's not the same as Reel Sexy and not peachy-pink/pinky-peach
Cream Soda blush - Light Neutral Coral (Satin) - this or Flatter Me
Flatter me pmp - Golden peach base with coral hearts - this or Cream Soda

My initial list consisted of 10 things so I'm happy I can skip/resist a lot. #feelsproud

Maybe I should try paint pot and pigment to help me to because my lids are oily as well.

post #3081 of 12143

Boy have not been on here in a while!  This collection is SO darn cute :)  Although I think I may only get one lippie and one gloss.  Darn I really love the brushes but I have so many...even hello kitty ones!  Can one have too many brushes?  lol.gif

Most of the items I'm getting are from the Veronica collection. I only liked a couple lipsticks from the Betty collection. I was a little dissapointed with Veronica's quad. @EngineerBarbie , you might feel the same way about it. As I was swatching it kept on reminding me of my wonder woman quad. Not sure if I will get it or not... I have a pic of the swatch if you are interested. :-)

Yep, she knocked BB lipstick off my list.  It looks too pink for me to love it.  And the Cream Soda blush looks like its going to be ashy. 

post #3085 of 12143

I love Karen's post! It reminds me of the one she did for Wonder Woman 2 years ago. It was my very first MAC collection and hers were the first swatches I found. I only ended up with a lipstick, blush and quad, but she made me so excited about everything!

post #3086 of 12143

the swatches are beautiful but I'm kind of disappointed now because I was kind of expecting the

lipsticks to be a little more vibrant. I really can't skip completely until I see this all in person

I did that with give me london of liberty collection and regretted it badly

post #3087 of 12143

Anyone totally turned off by the pearlmatte swatches? I kind am =(

post #3088 of 12143

I love Karen't post! Like you all already said it's very cute and well done. The Spoiled Rich quad looks very pigmented actually and she does light swatches most of the time, so that sounds promising. I'm also really happy that the pearlmattes seem to have good payoff.

I'm waiting for reviews and pics from T and Allura before I'll make my final decision.. it's possible I'll end up with nothing. lol.gif Though I want to buy something just for the packaging lol.
post #3090 of 12143

I love Karen's swatches! I also love how creative she is with showing us all the items. Too cute!love.gif I love the looks of the purple quad and had wanted it from the beginning, but to pay $44 for it. I don't know if I should. Maybe I will still skip it. I'm waiting on Cover Girl's new P!nk makeup to come out in the Spring. They are suppose to be making new eyeshadows with her choices of colors and since she's outrageous I'm hoping for some outrageous eyeshadows from them. I am still getting BS and DLG. I think I will pass on the other stuff and wait for the April collections.
