This is so sweet! What a great dad you have. It sounds like we at Specktra are all very lucky that the men in our lives support us in our quest for MAC! ... Even though it seems they are the first ones to say "Why? You don't need all that!"

I ordered:

 

Veronica's Blush pm

Mall Madness l/g

Kiss and Don't Tell l/g

Betty Bright l/s x2 (one for my Mom)

 

And now I wonder if I should order Girl Next Door.  What does everyone think?  I am super-pale NW10ish and have mostly blonde hair with a bit of red in it.

 

Also, I'm de-lurking!  I really enjoyed the excitement of this thread heart.gif

Y'all rock btw. My husband works at my university and he let me borrow his tablet for my 4:30-5:30 CST class (we were reading papers and discussing, i could pretend the papers were on the tablet) and riiiight when I walked into class I got this urge to check specktra... and of course the collection was up! 

 

I only got 2 things, but they're all I wanted and I'm glad I managed to get them!

-Flatter Me 

-Oh Oh Oh

 

I can't wait to get them.. now to start obsessing over the next collection =D

post #6876 of 12101

Well ladies, (and gents).. Time for bed for this gal. I hope everyone sleeps well knowing they got all the Archie goodies they wanted today! If not, there's always in store next week. It was a slice stalking this thread/the mac website lol. I'm sure I'll be back tomorrow for more discussion. Night all! flower.gif

I heard it in a movie and it always cracks me up. Clay Pigeons with Vince Vaughn. I watch a lot of movies and TV, so this stuff is seared into my brain.

 

Please tell me what you think of Shell Pearl when you get it. I'm undecided about it. I think it may be too light and I can't swatch it before buying.

It does feel like we've been waiting forever.

Soon we'll get to hold it, play with it, rub it all over our faces (sounds way creepier than I thought it would) and then get ready for the next collection.

Urrrrrgh, my job interview had to be postponed until Monday. So I have to wait even longer to find out if I can grab any goodies. =/ On a different note, I'm surprised both blushes are still available at this point. I thought for sure those would sell out quick.

post #6887 of 12101
I finally rested - well, as much as you can with a 4 month old but that's besides the point tong.gif

My final haul was:
Ronnie Red x2
Daddy's Little Girl x2
Betty Bright x4 (don't judge I'm a backup whore)
Kiss & Don't Tell
Mall Madness
Prom Princess
Cream Soda
Spoiled Rich quad
Veronica's Blush
Flatter Me x2

I JUST put in that 3rd order for a BU of Flatter Me because I have this strong gut feeling that the store I'm going to will run out at the event. They still don't have the PM to display/swatch so I'm thinking they'll have a really low stock. Anywho, I'm done til April! Okay, I'm getting the Jasmine stuff in March but THEN I'm done til April lol.

First up, I so hope the Archie model has really thick skin because you guys have torn him apart!  I don't think he's bad looking.  Anyway, I placed two orders, both by 4:50 CST!!  It was so funny because I was on the phone with my mom waiting for the collection to go up when someone posted it was up and to use the site map, which I had never used before.  I was ordering and trying so hard to listen to what she was telling me.  I ordered what I really wanted in the first order than everything else in the second.  Didn't spend as much as I thought because I actually cut my list once I started ordering.  I will go to the store next week and check out a few things and maybe get BUs of some of the lipsticks.  I hope everyone got what they wanted.

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 had a pin in each order. I'm sure you saw your pin when you checked out, right?

Nice! I am already regretting not getting Betty Bright. It's not a color that I would never even consider, but everyone seems to know something I don't! Were you able to swatch  in person, or do you just have a feeling it is going to be awesome on you?

I'm hoping that I will be able to snag one when it releases to the counters!

This sounds amazing. I. Want. It.

You only get the pin if your order is $75 or over.

The processing time for standard shipping is really fast this time. It makes a difference when there is a Pro-first release, doesn't it? I'm thrilled that the goodies are on their way to us. yahoo.gif

post #6899 of 12101
My class ended at 5:25 yesterday, I was out of the subway at 6:05 lol I quickly ordered dlg since my card payment had not gone through...woke up a while ago and added some stuff to my cart. I just received an email saying my order is CANCELLED! ssad.gif I was planning on going to my Macy's counter to pre-order today anyway. Hopefully everything is not sold out.

On another note, I'm happy for all the people who stayed up and got what they wanted! smiles.gif
post #6900 of 12101

Has anybody else noticed that Black Swan and Lord It Up aren't available for this collection despite being in the color story?  I'm a little bit annoyed because I wanted to get Black Swan in the special packaging.  I'm also a little bit confused why it was advertised as black with gold pearl, it is supposed to be black with silver pearl.
