I have a couple of BN BUs of Goes and Goes LS. I'm trying to sell my collection, please PM me if anyone is interested.

Thanks.

I'm kinda late to the party on this collection (i heard about the muscle lady, but missed finding this forum). Not much is grabbing me - fortunately, after Glamour Daze / Fabulousness / Guilty Passions.

 

LIPSTICK

Strong Woman – Bright violet (Matte) - only if it is truly VIOLET and not purple - i have Violetta already, it's more than bright enough for me.

Firm Form – Gilded black with gold pearlized pigments (Matte) - no question here - this is an absolute YES!

 

And, c'mon, MAC! Make us a truly VIOLET LIP PENCIL!!!
 
POWDER BLUSH
Taupe Shape – Satiny taupe
Poised – Muted pinkish brown
But i'll have to see if one or both are too dark - i tend to go lightly with my blushes.
Also, i have several very neutral pink blushes already, so i have to see where Poised fits - too dark? too similar?
Finally, I'm not likely to spend the bucks for it, but Chanel Notorious is a grey-taupe contour powder that sounds intriguing. So i wonder how TS will compare to it.

Thank you, Jenrbelt! I got all excited hoping it would be pics and swatches of the mattenes and the blushes. I guess these are the repromotes that she had avail already. Still very nice to see the swatches, but waiting & hoping for the other stuff to be swatched soon.

Well, shucky darn! I skipped Heroine because i thought it was too plummy (i like plums but i don't need more). So i was really hoping Strong Woman would be bluer.


What I don't get is considering everyone is always begging for more blue, and Go For It came out years ago now, why MAC doesn't just say what the hell and bring one out. It's not like a matte black with gold lipstick is going to appeal to everyone, so why not an overtly blue purple lipstick? I'm just glad I bu'ed Go For It at the time - it really is one of my all-time favorites and isn't difficult or unflattering to wear at all.

 

You are so right!

 

Go For It is the first of only two lip products i have ever backed up, the other is Kissable Lip Colour Flaunting It (grey mauve). I only discovered GFI after it was sold out on MAC on-line and in all the MAC shops. I managed to find two by phoning Nordstrom and they tracked them down and sent them to me. I keep one in my purse at all times.

 

More blue-violet lipsticks! Bring back Lust! And, dammit, Janet MAC, make us a lavender blue violet lip pencil!!!!

How would you say it compares to Chanel Notorious?

Truly violet lip pencil, that would be awesome.

 

Only Firm Form and Taupe Shape on my list, a least so far.winks.gif

Just joining the par-tay and the lippies sound amazing! Can't have too many reds or pinks!

post #499 of 4813

I'm so behind trying to write a novel in a month. I cannot go through the whole thread. Sorry to ask, but anyone know the exact US release dates?

post #500 of 4813

NaNoWriMo?

Seriously good for you for trying it. Best of luck. You'll feel like an amazing woman at the end of the month when you see all you've accomplished.

This hits Australia in Feb next year.... Bring on swatches of this collection!!!
post #504 of 4813

Taupe shape sounds similar to Chanel Notorious! 

I'm skipping the temptations collection just to pick up Party Parrot, pink pingeon.  Now that i see the description of the blushes... maybe BOTH will come home with me.  Only if they are fantastic. I'm trying to limit what I buy to the must-haves.

Have you tried Illamasqua Kontrol? That sucker is BLUE! Illamasqua calls it a blue violet, but I don't know if it's the kind of colour you have in mind. It's pretty dark.

 

I'd been eyeing it ever since it was released in the Theatre of the Nameless collection and finally caved in when they had a 30% discount on it a few weeks ago. I was really intimidated by it when I first received it because my tube of Goes and Goes was too tame (and warm) next to it! LOL. I have it on for the first time today and I'm pleasantly surprised how wearable it turned out to be.

post #506 of 4813

Yes. Thank you, BuickMackane!!! I finally bought myself Illamasqua's Kontrol and Underworld. Love both of them!!! Kontrol is out of Kontrol...lol. Love it.cheerleader.gif

Kontrol is awesome!!! The wear is great too (waaay better than Magnetism) and it's not at all drying for a matte.

 

I'm going to layer a bit of Violate over it the next time I wear it.

 She said it will be out late December but I did not get the exact date at least from her.
