Firm Form is actually wearable on it's own for those into dark lippies. It's not that intense as one would think. It's not inky,oily slick black. You have to build it up to get it super dark. I'm thinking of backing it up and pairing it with Black Swan liner (have to double check if it's lip safe). The only lippie I BU'ed was Strong Woman. I maayyyy check out Apres Chic tomorrow. This collection totally over took my mind and I forgot all about that one.

Awesome. On the downside, that probably means no release of S and AC until the code expires (6pm Est tonight).

I love red lipsticks so much so it's not like it will ever get wasted. I will definitely post a picture when I get the change. I'm glad you like them smiles.gif I haven't posted pics in a while, but it's because I don't have a change for it anymore. When I leave for work it's not light enough yet and when I'm back it's completely dark:( I want summer back or a winter with more sun. It doesn't have to be hot I just want more light during the day and for a longer time.

 

Tell me about it! Count your blessings you're not living here. Today is the shortest day of the year and we have a day of 5 hours and 43 min, the night lasts 18 hours and 17 min. th_yawn.gif And I'm living in the South!

 

Wishing for some quad swatches...anyone.gif

 

 

There is def something shady going on. There's no sign of the pressed pigments yet. They were supposed to come out this month, only a few working days left!!?

I feel sorry for you that you have such short days. I hope this collection can make our winter a bit brighter smiles.gif

 

I also want quad swatches. I need to know if I have to get Inner Strenght after all. I already gave in for Absolute Power and Strong Woman, so why not do the same for the quad too. All Woman was already mine, but I like quads and neutral quads are always handy right?

post #1597 of 4811

I'm disappointed... MAC releases collections early online but noooooo this one doesn't get that type of hype. It's so wrong MAC. I'm fed up with checking the site every hour lol and who has time to stalk on Xmas eve or Xmas????

I'm over it! I'm just going to hope nothing happens to my preorder and stop watching the site. This is my first preorder so I hope it goes well.

Sigh, one never gets used to it. Unfortunately I get this stuff in February only, but there are other collections meanwhile.

 

Yes! All Woman Quad rasta.gif

I want my lippies and blush. finger.gif u MAC!!!!!!

post #1603 of 4811

I have a feeling they'll end up putting this collection online while I'm at work tonight  tong.gif

post #1604 of 4811

Maybe they will release it when they said they would, the 24th.. I just hope it will be in the morning and not at night, because whos gonna be online on Christmas Eve?

Ugh Im annoyed MAC, not cool.

post #1605 of 4811

I received my goodies! I'm in lipstick heaven, they are so bright! Yay! Candy Yum Yum, Nicki and Party Parrot. Got Absolute Power too. I can't wait to get home an play with them! The taupe blush looks like it have a sheen to it.

Where did you get it? Pro store? I haven't been able to make it there in ages... OK, feels like ages, probably about 3 weeks. Personally, I'm so busy, I'll be happy if the collection stays under wraps until the 26th...

 

Weird thing: I was near a counter yesterday, so I couldn't resist trying on CYY. I'd tried it when it first came out and I didn't think that it looked good on me. Last night, suddenly, I liked it. I can't figure why it struck me as different, but after giving it a test, I think I'll be adding it to the collection. Given that, I might not need Pink Pigeon. I don't wear bright pinks so often that I need multiple matte barbie pinks. So now I'm looking at Party Parrot, Firm Form and Strong Woman for sure. Maybe a quad.

Do you feel  is a lot of sheen? It is the only thing on my list and I can not wear anything on my cheeks that is to shine --- pore problems.

It's not super shimmery, more like a glowy satin finish. Do you usually have a problem with MAC satin blushes?

I'll swatch it on my cheeks this weekend. :) It's lighter than Cork and Charcoal Brown eyeshadows, more similar to Cork but the undertones are more beige. And it's glowy, not matte.

Thanks! I intend to use it for contouring, do you think it's too glowy for that?

Mac pro in Dallas at Northpark has everything but firm form. Its worth a call!

You have to really pack it on to see the glow, like when you swatch it with your fingers. It's more like a subtle glow when you apply it with a brush. However, the colour might be a problem for anyone darker than NC30. You would need to apply a lot, unless you want subtle contouring. I think it would be really great for fair skin, since it's not too grey or orangey and the glow add a more natural look to it. I still think I would have prefered a matte version of it, though. Right now I'm C25/NC25 and I had to apply a couple of layers with my MAC 109 to really see it. On darker skin (I will need to try it when I apply my selftanner this weekend), I wouldn't be surprised if the glow is more apparent, so maybe it could be used more like a nude blush? I'm sure it's gonna be too light to contour.

I'll definitely be online Christmas Eve, but only after 9 PM or so. (Looking forward to our tradition of going out for Chinese food with the family. Hopefully I'll be mostly recovered by then.) I'll be sure to keep an eye out if it comes to that.

Sorry folks. I'm throwing a temper tantrum right now due to this collection not being online yet. finger.giffinger.giffinger.giffinger.gif If I have to check on Xmas Eve I will, but this is really not fair to us. I really wanted Firm Form in time for the holidays.finger.giffinger.giffinger.giffinger.gif

Why don't you treat yourself to an Inglot 281 lippie to make the waiting a bit more tolerable? It's LAVENDER!!! cheerleader.gif

Our family loves A Christmas Story. We've been doing Xmas Eve Chinese dinner for as long as I can remember.

post #1620 of 4811

Oh no! Why did you have to mention that? Enabler!!!girlhaha.gif Would you know if this shade is online or do I need to get myself to a store? I know I did try awhile back and no one had it in stock so I just forgot all about it, but I do remember Richelle showing us swatches.
