MAC x Archie's Girls (Betty & Veronica) Collection Discussion (February 2013) - Page 334

post #9991 of 12101

I am really loving daddy's little girl! I need to back it up if I get the chance! Boyfriend stealer is dark on me but I like it ! I was so excited to try it on that I just put it on top of daddy's little girl lol it turned out to be a nice purple combination, sort of reminded me of the way strong woman looks on me. Betty bright is light but bright! I had some problems with application with this but I have nothing like it so ill make it work. I didn't end up going to the preview even on the 5th, I can't justify spending anymore when I got a lot of expenses coming up :/ also, I think I might've accidentally thrown away my Archie's pin! Ughh!! Can't find it anywhere :/

Just got my last AG box from nordies and freaked out cuz i couldn't find RR in the box..i was seriously upset and ready to call when i went through the paper again and found it. I hate the way they do their packaging but I'm so happy everything was in there. RR lippie is so pretty!!!

I haven't used them yet. I had them delivered to work and opened up the box here.

I already have a BU but I want to get more. Hopefully they repromote it again in the future.

I totally agree! I ended up buying 3 Ronnie Reds. :)

I'm on my break at work now and taking a second look at them.

 

It's the 168, 167, and 226 that have some some bristles splayed. The 226 isn't as bad as the other two. I'm wondering if maybe it was a return? (I ordered after the restock)

 

I should say it's not like the brushes are massacred or anything...I'm just normally very careful with my brushes and have never purchased a new one from MAC (included SE sets) and had them arrive this way.

 

@honeymilk: They are really soft and nice, so that isn't an issue. I think I am going to give them a nice wash tonight and see if I can reshape them back a bit.

 

On the positive side: They are totally stinking cute! love.gif

I decided to head back to my MAC store today and picked up Mall Madness and Girl Next Door. I paired both with Current lip liner. I tried to like Boyfriend stealer but I think it was too dark for me. I may give it another try this weekend.

MAC never sells returned merchandise, even if you purchase a brush and leave the store and come back on 30 seconds it gets destroyed (sent back to the company) or used for brush belts for employees. Same with cosmetics and skincare.

Awesome! I want to say if MAC decides to make another color permanent, they should totally make it Ronnie Red, but I feel it would make RR less special if it's so easy to get. LOL.

Today I got Veronica's Blush Pearlmatte!!! Now waiting for Girl Next Door l/s to arrive and I'm done with this collection.

I have the same problem with 168 and 167  ssad.gif , the 226 and the other eyeshadows brushes are better quality.

It is a shame because I purchase several years ago (4 years ago) the Smashbox xmas travel brush set for 36$ and they are better quality.

It would be lovely on you! I posted pics & swatches in I think the Nars Spring thread. Its a beautiful wearable highly pigmented shade, but also looks very pretty as a light wash.

I had an appointment for the MAC event after a 13 hour work shift and they were over 30 minutes late. I ended up having to leave before anything even started! Should I contact MAC about this. I am very disappointed.

post #10006 of 12101

My Ronnie Red and Kiss & Don't Tell came today!

 

Everyone who said RR is gorgeous is absolutely right. I'm just getting over a cold and, even on my chapped lips, it felt smooth and moisturizing and didn't enhance any dry skin. When I removed it, it left a beautiful stain. I'm trying really hard not to buy a backup. Can't wait to wear this baby out!

 

Kiss & Don't Tell will be so amazing for spring! It's exactly what I was hoping it would be. When I saw it in the store before the collection launched, I swatched it over Betty Bright, so I didn't realize how pigmented it was, but it's really beautiful to wear on it's own. Goes great with my pale complexion.

 

I'm getting even more excited for the rest of my stuff to get here. Monday can't come fast enough!

I just got my brushes in and the same ones have some stray bristles but I figured that's due to them being machine cut versus hand cut. Not a big deal to me since they are still soft and oh so cute! Oh and does anyone else have a kitty who is a brush fiend?! My goodness did she go crazy sniffing out the tin and then once I showed her the face brushes, she was on them like a magnet! Must be the goat fur?

They probably won't get returned, but it's a little disappointing to have brand new brushes already all roughed up.

Poo...

Please talk me in or out of Girl Next Door! I have pigmented lips and struggle to find my first baby pink lipstick. I'm about NC40 for reference. Thanks in advance!

Ps
Please keep the haul pics, swatches, and lovely FOTDs coming!

I tried to take some pictures but the light is so crappy in my apartment you can't see that well.

 

I agree with you! They are still super cute!

 

I've decided that I'm over it! I'm just going to ignore it and play with my cute little heart brushes! th_thstars.gif

post #10015 of 12101

 This is earlier in the day wearing Betty Bright lipstick and cream soda blush......I'm so glad I got this blush as I never had it on my list and its just a pretty color.

 

 Here I'm wearing Daddy's Little Girl with prom princess blush... This blush is def pigmented so you def have to put it on with a light hand or it'll be too much.

post #10016 of 12101

I got my brush set today and it is SO CUTE! Tomorrow I'm going to check out the NARS powder at Sephora...I will either get a sample or come home with the loose power...girlhaha.gif

MAC shows Coming Soon for Ronnie Red. Is it worth stalking for this re-stock? Do they go fast?

I think RR is one of the lipsticks that has been selling out the quickest. It's a beautiful color, so that's not surprising. If you really want it, I'd definitely stalk the MAC site. smiles.gif

I am loving it! I got 3 of them. I think it is definitely worth getting and I am sure it will sell out super quick again if restocked.
