ETA: How cute is the AG intro on the home page?!  And what's this about Pro members receiving an AG pin?  I hope one comes with my order!  heart.gif

I read them all!

Took me 2 hrs to read 4am-noon posts!

Thanks so much Yazmin, you're wonderful! th_thstars.gif

 

It comes to £15 less than what I'd have paid in the UK, even with shipping! I'll check out the quads when they come out here :)

 

Awesome, glad you got your goodies! yahoo.gif

I ordered Shell Pearl this morning, and just ordered Flatter Me Pearlmatte...hoping they don't look the same on.  I just didn't want to regret not getting it after Karen talked it up so much!

post #6574 of 12143

O! M! G! i don't check this board for a couple days and now i have over 3,000 unread messages!

 

I got my e-mail from MAC about an hour ago and i placed my small order - Boyfriend Stealer lipstick, Mall Madness and Feelin' So Good glosses. I want the two Betty pigments, but i'm trying to be circumspect - probably a mistake :-)

 

Also, i have been meaning to share some swatches i made a few days ago. The colors aren't quite 100%, but i hope they're helpful.

 

Sorry, couldn't swatch the Pearlmattes because the store didn't have them on Monday.

 

PIGMENTS

TOP: Cheers My Dear - Light Lavender-pink

BOTTOM: Lucky in Love - Shimmering Light Blue Green (aqua)

I tried to correct this, but... the pigments are a tiny bit bluer than they appear - the pink is a bit more lilac.

 

LIPSTICK COMPARISONS

I've made this bluer than the original photo, but it still reads rather yellow. I'm between 15-20, neutral.

 

LIPSTICKS AND GLOSSES and a little comparison

This is uncorrected - my arm looks about normal, but lips products are a bit too pink...

Haha who was I kidding? I thought I'd be able to put the phone down and get other things done but I'm still here totally engrossed with what everyone just ordered smiles.gif

I wonder which items will sell out first?i thought Betty Bright would be gone but it's still available thank god!

My order from yesterday shipped out of Kentucky, so you should be fine.

This was the only reason I made a second order to get it lol I probably won't use often, but skipper's remorse is a b**** to deal with 
Yup! That's the one!

Kentucky.

 

At least whenever I order from MAC, the origin is always Louisville, Kentucky. I'm in California. I'm assuming KY is their fulfillment center.

Does anyone think pink pearl is a close dupe for cheers my dear? Im not sure if i should place my for it since i dont touch pink pearl too often.

First time I ordered online. Makes me so mad. I want it before I go on vacation (Feb. 9th evening). I live in Wisconsin if that can help someone with their judgement.  Thanks!

It's shipping from Kentucky so it won't take too long! I'm in Chicago and i usually get it within 4 days with standard shipping. hopefully the crazy weather we've had won't interfere!

I skipped this whole collection. Not as hard as I thought it would be, but it is doing my wallet good!

 

I love reading this thread though to see what everyone is hauling! Makes me happy that everyone is getting their goodies!! cheerleader.gif Can't wait to see FOTDs! pretty.gif

Thanks for this doll! I placed a second order for LIL. Wanted CMD, but i rarely (almost never) wear light pinks, plus i put transferred two vials of a pigment into an old big jar, and cant remember if it was CMD or quietly. Due to the fact that i didn't transfer over a name label (which came on the CMD vial), I'm assuming it's quietly (vial had name printed) and not CMD.

I'm on PRO so no codes for us.... I sure WISH!  Guess they feel the discount offsets no shipping codes.  And I cant complain!  Thanks for trying to help though doll!!

I DID do THISSS!!!  Thanks for reminding me!  I know people have done it in the past, but I never think to!  It was too late to add to my order from this morning... BUT she rang up the PM I wanted and sent it FREE shipping!  It was sent standard shipping even though my first order was 2nd day... but I'm not complaining!

Oh no no no no! nope.gif

Pink pearl is a pink purple duochrome. Almost the exact same as stars n rockets. Nowhere near each other.
