i didn't get that colour but i'm pretty sure you are not alone, because it was pretty!

 

from memory and online swatches i think strong woman is more purple...a red purple, but def purple.  i'll try to take a pic later this aft....

Red Dwarf is more of a berry pink.  I don't see any similarity to Strong Woman.

The only thing similar to strong woman is heroine. And as shown in some of the pics, there's a slight difference. Nothing else MAC-wise comes even remotely close to it.

Oops.

I just got back from the Pro store too. I don't have Heroine so I picked up Strong Woman. I also picked up Pink Pigeon and Absolute Power. From Apres Chic I picked up Stereo Rose and Hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is beautiful. The mineralized eyeshadows were gorgeous but I have seen colors like them before. The pressed pigments collection was beautiful too but they were hard to work with when I was in the store.

The lip balms do suck. They look beautiful in the tube but swatched horrible.
post #1692 of 4811

that would definitely look purple on me

post #1693 of 4811

Nudibelle- I didn't pay much attention to the liners, but that black pro liner is very nice, very smooth

post #1694 of 4811

Beautiful swatches!!!! Thank you. I need Firm form, Strong Woman and Hot Chocolate in my life.eyelove.gif

I loved Strong Woman but I really had to think- " did I really need another purple lippie?" I'm Team Purple all the way but I have 2 Heroines and a Seductive Intent, and I plan on buying this purple lipstick from MUFE, I needed to be smart, decided not to get it. Since SI looks just like Heroine on me too, it would be a waste of money. I picked up Party Parrot though- so prettttyyyy

Elegant one! How are you? It's been way too long since I've been on here and I miss the familiar people from when I posted regularly. It's Manishewitz wine in the bottle, lol. I drank the whole thing last Rosh Hashana. Very very sweet wine. I was waiting online too but I got impatient and just went to Pro.

post #1700 of 4811

Did you look at the blushes, how are they for WOC?

greengrin.gif lol.gif  Hi doll! Missed you too  friends.gif Doing well & crazy as always. Hope you & yours are doing well too.

 

Thanks for  the swatches. So do you have a favorite from this collection?

post #1702 of 4811

The blushes were - ok.... I didn't look at them nor the MES for too long as I was concerned about the lipsticks. I am not a huge fan of MAC blushes, as I prefer my NARS and La Femme. The lipsticks from both collections and the MES are WOC friendly, however the quads were hard to swatch- not very pigmented.

friends.gif All if well with me :). My favorite is hands down Party Parrot- from either collection. And even though this doesn't count Candy Yum Yum is also a favorite, lol . I finaly got to try on this famous lipstick and it's awesome.

It looks gorgeous isn't it? I was worried it would be too warm but it doesn't look warm all. It's perfect! heart.gif

Thanks I was just about to ask about the other lippies from the Apres Chic collex.

Strong Woman seems more red based versus Heroine being blue based... I would prob still think its safe to have both lipsticks! Hot Chocolate looks good in that swatch
post #1707 of 4811
On me they look similiar enough to not have both

Thanks for the swatch pictures!

 

FYI, Hot Chocolate didn't look anywhere near as lavender pink on me (NC15), especially on the lips - it read taupe with a medium rosy plum undertone. Haute Altitude gave my coloring more of this look, but a little pinker. Both of these and Apres Chic are going to look really different on different skin tones.

Gleam

Coconutty

Sheer Plum

Naked Paris

Spice Is NiceI

I also noticed that! It leads me to believe that these shades will be discontinued in 2013. I'm glad that none of those are my favorite shades but i am sure they are favorites for someone.
