I was wanting to get Taupe Shape, too, as a closeish dupe for Notorious as a gift for my daughter. I can't believe it sold it already. I'm thinking this sellout is temporary. Thanks to CC, though, for blowin' up my phone when ish went down!

Well, I wasn't site stalking but was bored so I checked out the MAC site & saw the items were up. I quickly placed an order for Absolute Power, Strong Woman & Embrace Me. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get Pink Pigeon or Taupe Shape ssad.gif I'll have to try one of my MAC stores on the 26th...

I guess I don't really need Taupe Shape since I already have Chanel Notorious (which is amazing! I wish I could find a BU)

holysheep.gif  228 posts I've missed since this morning!!!  Until I get all caught up, I will just say that I got home from work quite late tonight (almost 12:30 AM) to discover the collections were online!  I knew they would go up while I was out!  Luckily, I was able to place my order for everything I wanted, so hopefully I don't get one of those dreaded "sorry, we're out of stock" notifications.  Kept it super simple from this collection and only got Strong Woman.  I feel like a strong woman for limiting myself to just one thing!  Apres Chic on the other hand...

I was so surprised to find Notorious at my Neiman Marcus today!  They still have some left!

how the heckers did pink pigeon sell out so quick?.. i expected that to last the longest due to candy yum yum being made permanent

post #2020 of 4811
I ordered strong woman but now looking at more pics its looking like spitfire from wonderwoman collection im hoping not because i had spitfire and sold it since i didnt reach for it much.
post #2021 of 4811
I cannot believe Pink Pigeon is sold out already!!!! I fell asleep for like an hour! I am so mad right now!
post #2022 of 4811
I was able to get 2 Party Parrots smiles.gif one for me and one for my mom...

Dont know if I should get Strong Women too... I need swatched!
post #2023 of 4811

Just confirming, isn't the 287 brush from Apres Chic LE? What about the 208 brow brush? That's permanent, right? I don't remember.

post #2024 of 4811

Well that's weird, because on the other African American  lady , sorry dont remember her name, that posted it, it looked just like Heroine, I ordered Strong Woman but they sent me the wrong lippie from Dallas. So I guess it depends on your skin tone, mine being around Nicki Minajs, I'm praying it looks good. However, it seems original and a pure matte with no creaminess to it, is fine with me:)

post #2025 of 4811
Pink pigeon is on the Canadian site but it's 18$ + tax AND shipping , I'm sure it'll show up on US again
post #2026 of 4811

Right.  The 287 is LE and the 208 is permanent.

i'm not sure whether it's a must have...it might depend how comfortable you feel in other finishes and shades of red lipsticks, and how many you own. come to think of it, i haven't done a comparison within my own collection...i'll do one first thing in the morning, i guess there will still be time before the in-store launch.....

firm form i've only just done a very quick swatch on the lips...i haven't tried incorporating it in a look or wearing it out. i like that it's a warm, soft black - not an inky black like the last round of black glosses and lipsticks that came out three years ago. i think on the lips, depending on your skin tone, an onlooker wouldn't necessarily think of the lipstick as 'black', if you know what i mean....it's more like a deep sepia.

i'm going only from memory, but i didn't think its like spitfire at all. i didn't buy spitfire, but tried it in the store. it looked very nice, but i felt at the time that it was too fuschia for me...and extremely bright. strong woman is a much more subdued shade, and definitely more purple than fuschia. hth.

post #2030 of 4811

Oh my gosh, I just now saw the collection was up, I ordered everything besides Pink Pigeon, luckily that's the 1 lipstick from this collection I already have. I think I'll probably go to the store Wednesday anyways to swatch everything & possibly get some back ups. 

I'm really looking forward to trying to trying Party Parrot and Firm Form love.gif

post #2031 of 4811

Well, I ordered 2 Strong Woman, 1 each of Absolute Power, Party Parrot, and Firm Form.  I really want a backup of Pink Pigeon so I hope that it restocks soon.  I think I want a quad but that will have to wait until I see some swatches.

I just ordered 2 Pink Pigeons!!! Thanks for the heads up!
post #2033 of 4811
Hope Taupe Shape isn't really sold out. It's the only thing I want from this collection. And maybe Absolute Power.
Happy hauling everyone! heart.gif
post #2034 of 4811

I did Overnight for the first order (Strength lipsticks). After that, I was just trying to make sure I got anything at all. My other two orders are Standard shipping. I also had gift wrap accidentally added to my first order. I thought it was free, but I was charged for it. I was in such a rush to order that I didn't notice. I'm calling MAC in the morning to see if I can cancel it, but I'm afraid of messing something up. I don't want some weird fluke to happen and my whole order gets canceled instead.

Darn! Bummed I missed out on the blushes.

Ended up ordering Strong Woman, Firm Form, All Woman quad.

Thinking about Absolute Power, Hot Chocolate, and the LE mineral e/s brush..

Any pictures out there for Hot Chocolate? Can't find any. ssad.gif
