MAC x Archie's Girls (Betty & Veronica) Collection Discussion (February 2013) - Page 284

post #8491 of 12144

I've given up trying to keep up with this thread. ohboy.gif

 

I got my black box today: Ronnie Red, Daddy's Little Girl and Betty Bright. Bretty Bright is indeed bright on me. I used Auburn lip pencil to make it work better with my skin tone. I'm tempted by BUs of Ronnie Red and Daddy's Little Girl. I went and got myself a Nordstrom card, so I'll wait to Thursday so I can start earning Nordstrom Notes.

lol.gif that sounds like something my SO would say. Did he say you can have DLG too?

He is a red only kinda guy... I buy the pinks and plums and purples anyway but knowing him he will send me to store to try and back up RR and I will snag em then.  In the years that I have known him I have really educated him regarding colors.  I remember when we were dating I was getting ready to go get a mani and asked if he had a color preference and he said red.  I was all what do you mean by red?  I wear red {at the time Essie Wicked which I liked just a wee bit more than Chanel Rouge Noir which I also own} and he was red.  Red like a stop light? a corvette? a cherry? tomato? what do you mean red?  Now you all know there are a zillionty shades of red and so he is at the point where he looks at pictures and says that looks like it will pull orange or oh that one looks goodclapping.gif I am holding out hope he will grow to appreciate other colors tho he does like them on me when I do wear them.

 

RR pulls pink on me and I do love it.

Love the perks of having a Nordstrom Card. Your first $100.00 spent gets you a $20.00 note!

Awes. That's still sweet that he knows his reds though. It's a start.

 Soooo happy my items finally came!

post #8500 of 12144

I am LOVE LOVING  both Pearlmattes eyelove.gif They are sooooooo smooth & they are great for highlighting. I just used my finger to pick up some from the lighter part & used it under my eyes, eyelids, cupid bow etc. They gorgeously color correct/highlight all in one. I used the Nars pressed powder under my eyes & eyelids & then used the pink part of the pearlmatte over that. Its great for those blue/red/dark areas. The Flatter Me one works better on the face to correct/highlight than the eye area. For me, these were the winners of the collection.

 

Having said that, the blushes & lipstick colors are all Beautiful on! My only tiny tiny disappointment was I wished RR would have been a bit more red on me. But, its still a gorgeous color & works really well with both blushes. Strawberry Malt is so darn sexy pretty. The rest are coming tomorrow. What a lovely collection of colors.

My first package came today! Here are lip swatches for two of the lipsticks.

 

Betty Bright

I panicked a little when I first opened the tube because, to me, it almost looked neon orange and not exactly how I expected. However, applied, despite its pigmentation, this one definitely pulls much pinker on me. It's a bright but definitely not over-the-top coral in my opinion.

 

Daddy's Little Girl

Really nice magenta color. I wouldn't call this a pink at all, myself, but it's not necessarily a purple, either. It's just a bright magenta kind of color.

 

For reference, I'm NW20.

Yup! Yup! I left the store with my temp card to order some more Archies online. The MAC counter wasn't taking preorders. Then I saw I couldn't order anything online because I don't have the three digit security code yet. That'll be on my real card. I wasn't about to miss out on a $20 note, so I called the store and bought some Chanel stuff over the phone. I'll pick it up Thursday when I go in for Archies.

post #8504 of 12144

got my first round of products today, i love both blushes and cant believe  the betty shadow pallette didnt get much love from T I really like it! its smooth and blendable for me, just what i was looking for as far as a more neutral palette to wear with a few of my brighter lipsticks. now, only got betty Bright and am still on the fence about it..Flamingo and VG Nicki 1 are two of my fave lipsticks and I felt this one would be along those lines...but its pulling a bit more yellow than i would like. . maybe need to brighten it up with a gloss or lipliner. . anyhow ill probably get the ronnie shadow palette next a few glosses and maybe ronnie red..that color just looks better and better the more i see it on others..lol..im going to make a quick list for my counters event so i can try and get the rest of what i want there.overall very happy with packaging, and the products i got.

You guys are all so sweet! Between getting DLG, Betty Bright, the Glinda palette, the new NARS powder, Cream Soda, and Mall Madness, I think I have enough retail therapy for today. Thank goodness for my parents gifting me a backup car last year. I feel really, really lucky, and I'm just relaxing with my husband while he cooks us a nice dinner. I really appreciate all the best wishes and they've made my day a lot brighter. bigheart.gif

I got it anyway. ha! Guess I'll just have to keep my trapper closed when I wear it. Might be the only time I'm quiet. haha.

^ True story.  Blue-based reds DO make your teeth look whiter, and the more yellow/orange reds are the ones that can make your teeth look more yellow.  The last time I wore a red lippie actually, hubby asked if I'd been using teeth whitener!

anyone.gifSIDENOTE: Does anyone know how to fix the glass/hard plastic part on the blushes? Someone got upset with me a trashed my makeup stash (mainly my MAC stuff) and like... 3 of my blush plastics are disconnected from the container... Can blushes survive without the top part?? Cause one of the plastic tops are missing completely...

 

nonono.gif  That is NOT cool.  If someone did that to my makeup stash, I'd show them the disconnected blushes and explain that a similar detachment would happen to their HEAD if they ever got near my makeup stash again!!!  Hope you're able to pop those plastic tops right back in!  I've done it before.

Wow, both look lovely on you!! This makes me so happy I got Cream Soda blush.  Hope it looks this good on me!  heart.gif

post #8507 of 12144

I got my goodies today! yahoo.gifI think my fave items so far are the Spoil Rich quad and BB.  I'm a bit disappointed in CS and GND.  But I'm wearing the quad now and I don't regret getting it.  The shades work so well with each other.  The only thing is I found it difficult to build up the Spoiled Rich and Ron Ron Run shades and to blend them out.  But my lids were unusually dry and flaky so that may be the real culprit.

Srry the lighting is not so good.  I'm also wearing cream soda here but I don't think you can see it well.  It's on the top of my cheek bones.

 

post #8508 of 12144

They just look so yummy! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the Caramel Sundae Quad and Veronicas Blush on darker skintones in case anyone was wondering. 

 

 

 

 

 

I have on Ronnie Red and I used the Veronica's Blush as a highlight. It looks bad swatch (my opinion) but on the face it's a lot better but def. not a blush for my skintone.

I have Fast Fleet, and I think it would look lovely with Flatter Me! I'm not sure what lipsticks Pink Cult goes well with. I like it with Hot Chocolate and with some of my brighter lipsticks, but it's hard for me to find a balance sometimes.

A few quick swatches :) ... RR, DLG, BB

Thank you!! I have on Fast Fleet/Fleet Fast lol the one from Hey Sailor blush and I used Veronica's Blush as a highlight because its too much silver in it to pick up the red tone hearts. I like it as a highlight on my face yes but when I swatched it first I was a little scared .lol 

post #8519 of 12144
Opinions on Lasting sensation or 18c from make up forever for BB? Would like it to pull more coral.

Yeah its hard to get the color from the little hearts, I used my finger to pick up color from the hearts, & then applied it that way to my cheeks & then used the whole thing over it. Kind of a pain.

 

You have such a beautiful great happy smile!
