MAC Early Buzz - News on Products for 2013 - Page 45

post #1321 of 3881

After reading through all the new colour stories I am quite relieved. There are a few items I want but not a crazy amount like last year.

 

I think I hit rock bottom of my addiction when I found three LE products from fall that I "had to have" still in there boxes.

 

I need to be much pickier this year.

I'm curious: Are you wearing make up every day?

Yeah, I just cleaned out a big chunk of my stash (including backups) by selling on Specktra or giving to my sister/friends/relatives and I feel so much relief! I need to be more selective this year.

 

I actually wear makeup pretty often for work, happy hour, out with friends, etc...so now I am putting a lot of new products into rotation.

 

Mac Guy, do you know anything about the semi-permanent MES? Don't these usually come out in February?

I'll post the info when I have it available. Patience please.

I love getting rid of what I'm not using. I really did try to be selective last year, but I ended up buying a couple of colours that weren't really quite right for me in an effort to stretch out of my comfort zone. Lesson learned - after 30 years of wearing makeup, I already KNOW what colours look good on me. No real need to try to incorporate the ones that aren't right.

 

The nice thing is that with two daughters and their tribes, it's never hard to find someone who will use a colour or finish I'm not. Still, I'd rather not buy them in the first place if I can help it.

That makes sense.

 

Being more selective can also be fun. A well edited collection is so much more enjoyable and special. The hard part is just sticking to the plan.

I'm with you! Also grateful that a lot of the new color stories aren't causing my wishlists to skyrocket. I've got some saving to do for upcoming trips!

EXACTLY! I'm like that, too. It doesn't matter if it's new or old, I know what looks good and what doesn't!

 

I also agree. One of my best friends is a makeup fiend too, so I can give it to her or my sister, who also likes makeup. I have other friends that will be glad to get some products and anything else I'll just sell or donate to a local charity. Works every time winkiss.gif

Thank you mac-guy for all the info you have provided us :)  

 

Most of the things I want  will be in April so I need to start saving up now! lol

post #1335 of 3881

I'm still reading and digesting all the news... I really hope this year I can try the extra dimension formula, colours from last year were not new in my stash so I skipped all of them... (or, in Superb's case... it was really not suiting my skin... sadly because I still think it's gorgeous...)

I've heard you say that before and wish I would have listened. I'm a HUGE sucker for LE, always afraid I'll be missing out. Hopefully in 2013 I can stop with that and love all that I have.

You're awesome!! Now I just need to pare down my Archie's wishlist to leave some $$ for these collections!!

post #1341 of 3881

April will be a very expensive month for me!! Spring collections are what I cannot get enough of!

post #1342 of 3881

Does anyone else find it weird that there are no Cremesheen Glasses??????? We haven't seen everything yet, but usually there's something…..

 

Maybe it's just because MAC wants to push the MLBs hard? I always look forward to the spring csgs and the ones in the big Mineralize collection in the summer, but let's face it - there will be MLBs in that collection, now that there is such a thing, rather than csgs. They're my favorite glosses for the texture, the translucency, the rich colors and the way they look great on top of lipsticks as well as by themselves.

 

The MLBs are great, but they ain't cremesheen glasses. Here's hoping this is a temporary thing.

I hope so too! I have not tried any of the MLB yet. I'm thinking of trying on from Baking Beauties collection. I love cremesheen glasses! I do hope that the upcoming mineralize collection will have them!

With Mineralize lipsticks as well as balms coming out, combined with how popular that huge summer Mineralize collection is, methinks MAC has been wanting an all mineralize range for a while and the summer collection is going to start being 100% Mineralize. More cha-ching for MAC - it's a good money making tactic.

 

If the Fashion Sets collection had been csg instead of plain lg, I would have been going bananas.

Yes I love Cremesheen glosses. I do see how you go through them quickly compared to other glosses I have. I am glad to see the mlbs back tho. I hate to say it but I think I like them more than tendertones. I really like the squeeze tube better.

I've noticed that a ton of skin powders/finishers, whether Pearlmatte, that Year of the Snake Beauty Powder, or MSF, have been set for MAC 2013. What do you guys think of those offerings overall? I really like those sorts of products, but I don't want to be shelling out cash for every variety, y'know? I'll probably just end up purchasing 2 or 3 unless I absolutely adore any others.

 

Also, how do you prefer using them? As a highlighter? A setting powder? Or perhaps an overall shimmery finish?
