The same thing happened to me, and from what I've been reading in the thread, a few other people.  I called UPS and they told me the package never made it to their truck and I should contact the sender asap.  I called MAC and they told me I would have to wait 10 business days and call back to open an investigation.  The CS did tell me that usually results in the products being resent by next day air. Sadly, I think the employees at the fulfillment center have gotten wise to the value of limited edition items and are taking things to sell on Ebay, I hate to think this way but so many issues on this forum alone, imagine how many "mistakes" of this type have been made overall. I hope you get your order very soon, it takes away from the excitement of the launch but I'm still very excited for everyone that got their goodies.

Wowwww. I went USPS to my post office instead of UPS but I'm gonna get on the phone soon with somebody. rants.gif Last time I kind of jumped the gun with a Sephora order that said my order was shipped and when I checked the tracking it said it was delivered....... to ANOTHER STATE. Delivered! I got on the phone and the lady sent me out a replacement order only to have my original order arrive to me the very next day. Uggh. USPS Priority is not supposed to take this long. I'll see what's up.

I've changed my mind.  The pink in Caramel Sundae is atrocious on me.  Very chalky and ashy.   BOOOO!!!  LOL  However, it could be my lack of primer and I do see it has a slightly purple sheen to it.

What is your skintone again? I'm an NC 35 and I really like "Da Bling", it's a nice satin pigmented wearable pink. I would try it next time your at MAC :)

I added OH3 too. The only thing I have been able to stick too is no blushes. I'm trying not to end up with cream soda in my cart. HA!

I know! I have learned to stay out of threads I don't think fit me very well but that doesn't always work. Thankfully this is a collection that works for me.

NC 44 although, i have to admit.  pinks aren't my best color on my eyes.

My mistake, I just double checked and it's a veluxe pearl not satin. I felt the same about pinks until the mac girl suggested da bling to me last summer, it has a warmness to it but the paintpots also do wonders for eyeshadows, i know you mentioned checking those out:)

I had a similar problem with a chanel order from their website (also UPS). It turned out that the label was printed off-center, so the address and bar code scan wasn't working. It was sort of a nightmare to straighten out--eventually, chanel.com had to work with UPS but I had to really push it all the way to chanel corporate to get it done. because it was an automated labeler happened to a lot of people, I was seeing similar problems on the message boards.  I have no idea what's going on here, but sometimes it's the way that the shipper packed or labeled it maybe not theft (I hope not anyway)

Its really nice how spectra-ites help us out esp the ones that know the line well or get their things early or get to events, previews somehow. But yet it is enabling. I got to see the collection at a store yesterday but found that I had already ordered enough based on the information on this thread. No more Archie for me, thanks to all for everything you post. So helpful heart.gif

Join the club!!  grouphug2.gif  I'm trying to be better about that this year, myself.  So far I've done well (skipped DLG because I have Night Blooming and Outrageously Fun, skipped RR because I have a few bright reds, etc).  I'm just afraid I might cave in for the Fashion Sets and get Embrace Me l/s even though I have at least a dozen bright pink lippies!!  We'll see how that works out, lol.

Thanks for this!  Makes me feel better about getting FoF and passing on FSG  smiles.gif

Best of luck on the interview, kirsten!!  Go in there wearing whatever makes you feel confident and I'm sure you'll knock it out of the park!

 

 

 

Okay, so it seems the reason is mostly related to being stuck inside for a few days.  I still think it's a gamble to buy milk if power outages are expected, but I like the idea of putting it out in the snow!!!  I guess my thinking will get more creative with things like that once I start having kids, haha.  And Starlight, you'd better believe I already got hot chocolate and a bag of mini marshmallows!!

well as a mom it's a big concern. I think pretty much everyone in my area has a generator now since Hurricane Sandy (we were hit kinda hard) but snow is an awesome way to keep stuff cold.  As for me... I need to find entertainment for my son and make sure he is fed well so I can play with makeup LOL

 

don't forget the whipped cream!!!  pompom.gif

Karen has a cool post on pigments and brushes

Oh yeah, generators sold out like crazy after Sandy!  I live in an apartment so no generator purchasing for me.  I feel like I live in a little protective bubble where I am because within a mile or two radius of where I live, there didn't seem to be much damage from Sandy, but go past that and there were trees down, power out, and flooding!  Sandy only knocked out our power for a few hours, and it was during the day so it wasn't bad.  We'll see how my area fares with this blizzard though!

 

Whipped cream!!!  I did forget that!  Looks like hubby's making a stop on his way home from work  girlhaha.gif

 

Hope you get time to yourself to play with your goodies!

I really love pigments, but I only buy when someone wants to half with me.  They last forever, if MAC would make them half the size and maybe charge 11 or 12 dollars I bet they would fly off the shelves.

a smaller sized would be great for the casual makeup buyer (like me) NO WAY ill ever use this up

i might only do my face up three times a week for work..never fridays or saturdays.

Exactly!

Tried Black Poodle sample today with Shell CCB as a light base. I placed a bit in cap and sprayed Fix Plus on 286 brush. It was just plain black, no purple shimmer seen. I had to blend it out with Rich Core to make it wearable (with MM). Am I doing something wrong? I am just getting into pigments

Later, which is similar to Black Poodle looks like that on me sometimes. I make sure I use a white or purple primer (mac Chromaline white or MUFE #26) to make the purple pop

I love these two! Summer Sweetheart lipglass and the Caramel Sundae Palette. Wore the yellow all over the lid and then the second darkest shade in the crease and it looked so nice!

Finally I have everything I ordered. I got backups because I don't want to buy off eBay in a few months for three times the amount!
post #9925 of 12101
Darn these threads, ya'll are making me develop a lemming for FSG lipgloss and I am on a no buy. I am going to watch like a hawk for restock and if there is one, I am going to get a RR and then a FSG lippie. Then I'm done. No, this time I really mean it. Okay, maybe I need the cute lil brush set with the hearts. I have to stay out of this thread but its like a magnet...

Or maybe try the 242. Just something a little denser than the 286. And maybe try patting/packing it on rather than swiping to see what kind of results you get. Good luck!

        I will do just that. I aim to get pigment application right, lol. I hope u get ur PP soon. Sorry about ur troubles. Worse case scenerio, PM me

       Thanks so much for all the suggestions and recommendations!!!!. I am still the middle of reading the post on the link. I  did not have the other brushes mentioned but I got so excited to see the 252 brush on Karen's site which I had bought originally to use for concealers. I think that I will use it for the pigments (and remain on a no-buy till April)

I'm sorry but I can't catch up with this thread. Does the Veronica blush (can't recall name) look like Taste Temptations dark blush??? I don't want to get it if it's the same color practically.

Also, if anyone can do a CP for a brush set for me, I'd really appreciate it. Please, Please, Please PM me. TIA.
post #9929 of 12101

After swearing that I wasn't going to get anything from this collection, a visit to the dentist caused me to change my mind and treat myself a little. I only got Prom Princess blush and Ronnie Red ls and I love them both. RR is my first red lipstick and completely out of my comfort zone but its just gorgeous!

post #9930 of 12101

I just got home for the weekend, and my CP from Yazmin has arrived! I love the look of everything, but I need to spend some time swatching :)

My mum had intercepted the package and nagged at me until I opened it in front of her - "why on earth do you need FOUR blushes???"

I tried to explain that they're different colours, but "they'll last you at least 5 years!!" Oops! If only she knew...

Although she is eyeing up Cream Soda!
