MAC Strength Collection Discussion (December 2012) - Page 59

post #1741 of 4813

Weren't Kid, Samoa Silk and Brown Down the last 3 veluxe formula shadows? Maybe they are getting rid of the formula like they did with the Matte2:( Those were the better matte shadow formula's Mac had why do they want to get rid of them? I have Samoa Silk and Brown Down, but I have so many shadows that I won't use them up quickly. I think I'll have to get Kid now and also Winkle that is going to be discontinued as well and maybe Purple Haze.

 

Thanks for the swatches Aradhana and MsWestchesterNY! Firm Form looks much more pigmented in MsWestchesterNY's swatches than in the swatches we saw before, so that's good news:) I'm glad I decided to get a cp for Absolute Power and Strong Woman too. I can't get over the amazing Mac matte formula, so I'm really happy to get some more lippies in that formula.

I'm probably skipping Poised, Taupe Shape is still on my list! But you have to spend €40+ on the mac website for free shipping so I'm not sure if I'm going to buy it.001_unsure.gif Maybe I'm in London when this collection is out.. I want a release date!!

I'm stalking either way. I don't want to miss anything. I guess I also need to add a few of those discontinued items to my cart.

Thanks for the swatches! My list is still the same. Team 5 for the lipsticks.

How unfair! We only have free shipping sometimes for 3 days without any code.

That seems to be the popular day to put collections online lately.  I'm just hoping they do it soon because if it's not in the next few hours, I might miss it since I won't be home until really late again tonight.  Come on, MAC!  We've been patient!  ...Well, okay, maybe not patient exactly...but we've been waiting!!!

Haha yes more specific would help. I hope you can check it out in person and get all you want!

post #1754 of 4813

And Douglas is more reliable.At least here in Germany!

 

I know that a lot of people had problems with their orders from MAC because they were canceled even though

the products had been shown as available when they ordered.

Also in Holland! And the fast (and always free) shipping is great. And the beauties. I really don't like the employees though so it's great that you can order stuff online.smiles.gif

Mac.nl likes to take its time sending stuff out so I buy from Douglas whenever I can. The free shipping is great too cheerleader.gif

I don't think the blushes will sell out that quick here. I think the lipsticks will though.

Definitely getting All Woman quad, Inner Strength I haven't decided if I want to pick it up during the initial launch or wait.
Pink Pigeon and I are pretty stocked, Party Parrot I have one, but I don't wear it often and usually end up grabbing Impassioned instead.
It's just Absolute Power that stumps me. I bought quite a few BUs of Red Racer and Ruffian Red because I loove them both - I'm not sure if Absolute Power can hold a candle to them, to be honest! And Firm Form - it's so hard to resist the hype, but I really can't imagine me using it too often!

Taupe Shape, used to contour on NC35, the taupe undertones seems to disappear on warm skintone, it's not orangey or grey:

 

 

The sheen is less apparent on my cheeks than if I swatch it heavily on my arm. The colour seems to be lighter too with that sheen, this is why I think it's better for fair to medium skintone, if you try to add more it will look like this:

 

 

More pics & review on the blog! (use google translate if you don't speak french)

I think I'll just skip this collection.  I don't think Strong Woman would look good on me.  And while I love Pink Pigeon and Party Parrot, I don't think I need a backup of each.  I have similar colors that I think are close enough if/when I ever run out of those two.  Money saved!
