I googled the models name and she looks way better than that promo pic. What really throws me off in that pic isnt the muscles. Its that awful gargabe bag dress lol

I emailed MAC about the re-stock of the blushes (I didn't buy the lipsticks from this collection). The email said quite clearly NO restock of the blushes online. I'd definitely get those lipsticks from a store (some ppl have posted some locations with good stock in this thread, but otherwise just call around). I wouldn't wait long, knowing how popular those lipstick colors are.

Yesterday, I got Absolute Power and Party Parrot in the mail. I also got Pink Pigeon at my local MAC store after Christmas. I can't wait to try them all. They're bright and beautiful.  eyelove.gif

Prettykitty absolutely stunning as usual!

I am sooooo glad I broke my no buy for Absolute Power!!! Its awesomesauce. It turned out a pinky red on me. I was afraid it would be too close to Ruffian Red, but it's def different. RR is more of a bright cherry red. I tried it with Magenta liner and it brought out more of the pink in it th_e2cloud9.gif

I know, she really is gorgeous in the pics I googled. I too am not fond of the dress, but love to see that mac took a different approach with this collection and stepped out of the box. As a mother to 3 beautiful girls, I want them to see that women REALLY do come in all shapes and sizes and that we are all BEAUTIFUL! 
 
off topic a bit...
not sure if it's been brought up yet. I tried my AP,pi pi, & pa pa lippies and find I get a lot of red or pink staining after I remove them. Like they are SUPER pigmented. Anyone else experience this?
post #3460 of 4811

^^^Yes AP & Party P are really hard to wipe off completely. I have the same trouble with Love Goddess too.

post #3461 of 4811
I am really late to this: Heavy snow and a sick husband put me out for a while.

I got both PiPi and PP from this as well as Black Ice Liner (prior to temptalia review: Is it true that these "suck"?). Didn't know that they sold out online (out of loop) and decided against a PP Bu so I returned it the next day and the SA said they hadn't sold out yet. Had I known I would have helped people who missed out! 001_unsure.gif

Yay! Received my AP from the lovely Yazmin today. Looking forward to testing it. smiles.gif

I had no idea she was the woman in the Fahrenheit commercial!

My Absolute Power is on backorder th_mad0217.gif But I adore Strong Woman-I need more than just 2 lol.

I googled her too and she is gorgeous. She just looks so harsh in the MAC image! I can't decide if it is the garbage bag dress or the Sumo wrestler hair.

When are they releasing this collection in the UK?

post #3468 of 4811

I still haven't tried my lipsticks yet. LOL

post #3469 of 4811

today i tried firm form with revlon's lip stain in "crave" underneath. the result was a dark glimmery plum that was wearable and vampy. just thought i'd share the idea!

I should have played with them tonite.  (just not used to playing withnew products before taking pics)  but instead of playing in products. I surfed the web. LOL  *SMH*   and uh...  how do you like Warm Companion. I've been waiting for like ever!!!!!!!!  ;-)

post #3474 of 4811
I wore PP today. I was bored in Macy's so I decided to have a quick photo shoot!

LOL  lmao.gif Well yes, I did getWarm Companion in the mail on Friday.  It's beautiful but I can't wear it until my Nice & Simple arrives on Monday!  You insisted that I need to wear them together so that's what I'm aiming for.  I'm thinking a smokey eye using my CR Desert Camouflage palette should work well with WC topped w/N & S.  What do you think?
