Oh no. Maybe check the clearance bin?

I mostly use a lip brush with reds and pinks. I can press my lips together, but I definitely can't rub them or it seems to rub away the outermost portion of my top lip, and I have two-toned lips, so that's not a good look. I need to use a lip brush for the best precision.

I use a brush sometimes.  It depends on the product...formula & packaging.

There's a big ass glitch goin on!

It removed the apres chic brush and lip balms from my cart. The brush "add to bag" is still there, but it won't add to bag. The balms are showing in stock, but no "add to bag" button for any colour.

Mac is seriously jacking shit up lately! angry.gif

Hey, someone posted a pick of Khloe Kardashian wearing that almost plum black lipstick. Did anyone figure out exactly what it was? Maybe someone should tweet her to find out ;)

post #3795 of 4813

I'd like to know the shade & brand also.graucho.gif

She gave them an "A" and I agree. Love the new matte formula. These are sooo creamy and last for a long time. 

 

post #3798 of 4813

I was so excited that I grabbed another PiPi and a Taupe Shape last night. Then I get on here and see that everyone else got back order notices too.... bah! Go make some more MAC!!!! 

post #3799 of 4813

Ok seriously, if everyone got BO notices WHY does PiPi still add to cart etc? Grrrr MAC!

I wonder if they know they'll have a certain amount but they got delayed or something. I'm assuming they'll fulfill the orders like they did with YR but it does seem to be annoying. I haven't gotten a pipi and if I had the funds atm I would order one and wait but still I can see how this would be really upsetting. Waiting suxs.

th_roll1.gif  thmbup.gif I agree girlhaha.gif

 

Its probably why Nordies is doing the BO on the lipstick as well. As soon as the MAC warehouse gets them out, everyone gets their BO fulfilled.

post #3802 of 4813

I saw last night on MAC PRO that they restocked PIPI and PAPA....But, not the other ones....

 

As, far as the snow goes, I had snow on my Venus l/s from Heavenly Creatures and it was brand new!!!

 

What people don't realize is that these lipsticks are made well in advance and in warehouses so, who knows what the temps are in that warehouse let alone what part of the country these warehouses are located.

 

Everything has a shelf life, some longer than others. I believe people should use their own discretion!

Did you get your PiPi?

 

Mine already shipped.

post #3804 of 4813

Wow, keeping up with this thread is hard.  And all the lip fungus discussion was sick.gif

 

I just cannot pull the trigger on getting either quad.  I feel like they are both dupeable.  Any ideas for building one from previous release e/s or permanent shades???

Ahaahahaha it was getting gross...I want the ALL WOMAN quad!!!! Do, I need it? No....But, for some reason after seeing looks with it, I want it!!!

post #3806 of 4813

PaPa and PiPi are both showing up as "COMING SOON" so hopefully I'll be able to get my BU once I have more funds.

That makes me want AP!  I wonder if it would look okay on me.  Maybe if they restock this one too, I can find out.

Do you have coloring that makes cool greys and taupes look weird and wrong? If so, you will love All Woman, since it works with that coloring while still reading cool. I'm glad I have it, since I always wind up using warm neutrals because the cool ones usually look bad. Just because brown looks good doesn't mean I always want to wear it! soapbox.gif
