There's several shades of eyeshadows not listed as LE. Including Brown Down and Kid. I noticed some in other categories too. I had noticed awhile back that some of the pro longwear lipcremes disappeared and now two more perm ones are listed as LE. Must be clearing out slow sellers or something. Maybe new products will roll out to replace?

They will be. They haven't been on the schematics for atleast the past 6months, if not longer.

from top to bottom:

dish it up!

douala (by nacara) - this looks out of place, but in the tube it looks super purple. tonally it's the same as violetta on me, but colourwise it's not purple at all.

violetta

go for it

seasoned plum

strong woman

heroine

bright plum

flitter

 

 

sorry, i didn't get seductive intent, so i can't include it in the purples...

i should add - i wasn't sure if the difference between heroine and strong woman would come across in my pics, because in the lighting at my place they look very similar in hand swatches...but in the end it did:  i think heroine and strong woman are quite different (blue vs red) but if you're on a budget and can resist the temptation of purples, it might make sense to skip it in favour of something else you like since there are so many collections out there right now!

Thanks for the swatches! They're definitely different enough for me to justify grabbing SW (and a backup or two).

The pressed pigments collection was beautiful too but they were hard to work with when I was in the store.

Would you swatch hot chocolate please?

Yes I'd live to see hot chocolate also smiles.gif

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....

I always mess up on visually comparing swatches without having them side by side. LOL  I might be confusing my strength swatches.    but on me red dwarf looked nothing like the swatches.  it was a red/plum color on me.  I was kinda suprised by it.  but everytime I think I find a dupe, when I compare them side by side, it is nothing like I thought.

post #1729 of 4811

Hmmm, maybe I ws thinking of Seasoned Plum? LOL   Ignore me, I had a fever the past two days and still had to go into work.  i was exhausted last night.

Anybody knows when the collections usually pop up at the Nordies site? I feel it would be easier to order from them that competing on the Mac site?
post #1731 of 4811

Thanks for the info, mac_aiken. I order with the Portland store who is not getting it, but maybe I'll have my person contact Seattle.

So who thinks its gonna go online tonight ? Or do you think tomorrow?
post #1737 of 4811

Thank you so much for the swatches.Very,very helpful bouquet.gif

 

They are definitely different enough to have all of them....I love them all eyelove.gif

 

I am a bit surprised to see how red SW leans compared to Heroine and SS, though.

 

I cannot wait to get SW heart.gif

I think that I do not have such a red-purple yet hmm.gif

Especially one with a matte finish.
