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.

You try the purple chromagraphic pencil (PRO item I think)?  It might meet your needs...

I have been meaning to hunt those down for a while now.  Lemming rehatched.

I love Pressed Amber.  Its my "winter" bronzer/highlighter.  I just love to layer it over every blush I have.

This is stimulating my interest as well.  It appears fairly unique.  I wonder if there are microglitters in it???????????eyelove.gif

can't wait for this collection, how similar is Pink Pigeon to Candy Yum Yum?

It's similar enough that I didn't get PP the first time around since I already have CYY. (Though I think I might get it this time.) CYY is more neon and has more of a purple tone to it than PP.

I have neutral pinks - Pink Tea, Pink Cult - which is why i skipped The Perfect Cheek - too similar. And i've been soaking in Glamour Daze so much that i forget i picked up Baby Don’t Go ("light cool beige") from Office Hours. I do have a old brown blush, L'Oréal Blushesse Café au Lait, that i got in either the 80s or 90s and still occasionally wear. But i could use an updated brown blush product.

 

Still, i'm only definitely getting one thing - Firm Form - from this collection. I'll be checking out 3 others: Strong Woman which is probably a pass, and those two brown-beige blushes. With so many new collections coming up i gotta try and stay sane!

 

I gave up trying to stay sane. th_crazy.gif

thanks :] I got Pink Pigeon when it came out but ended up selling it and I kinda regretted it but I needed the money back lol this time I'll get it and keep it. I just wanted to make sure it was different from CYY otherwise I wouldn't waste my $$$

OMG Where do you order from with shipping to Finland? Yeah, I live in Turku and was planning a trip to Helsinki just to fight for this collection :D

There are three possibilities ATM: you can get a CP (from a fellow Specktrette or if you know someone who does this 'professionally'), you can order from Mac UK Mail Order (they charge 18 GBP for shipping) or EvilBay of course.

I was a very naughty girl.angelic.gif I decided to treat myself to Chanel's Notorious blush.angelic.gif It had been listed as "sold out" yesterday, but I checked a few minutes ago and there it was. It was calling my name. I swear to it.angelic.gifsneaky.gif I decided to order it to see what all the fuss is about. I'm so happy right now. Now, all I need is for Jet and Taste Tempations to be released (soon enough I know) and then the Strength Collection.

I need some Firm Form in my life.love.gif

Everyone should treat his/herself once in a while thmbup.gif I do it all the time tong.gif And excellent choice, i bet you will be very pleased with it :) Haven't had the opportunity to get my hands on Notorious myself yet, since it's not released yet in Europe. Enjoy your blush! th_wink3.gif

I believe it was released here already, but just in the chanel boutique in amsterdam. I also treated myself to some chanel. I got Malice and the quad. I wore the quad today and loved it! I'm starting to want Notorious, but I'm already pleased with Coffee Walnut and Strada as contour colours.

I'm still trying to catch up on the chanel thread...only 272 posts left and that where over 700 two days ago:p Maybe you can call them and ask if they still have it? I'm not sure if you would be able to travel there though. I try to skip some things and since Notorious is most likely sold out already in amsterdam and if not I would have to travel quite a lot, it's easier to skip. You also got some great chanel goodies! I can't wait to try Malice, but I'm also still enjoying Everything That Glitters.

I can definitely relate lol .. whistle.gif Trying to skip a few things as well atm, november has been crazy already (Glamour Daze, OPI Skyfall collection, Chanel's Eclats du Soir collection, ..) and it's only the 8th shockt.gif I guess i'll wait for Notorious to either be released at the counters, or i'm likely to skip it as well. If it does hit the counters i'll probably get it tho graucho.gif

No they think halfway november, but no exact date as of yet. Inglot netherlands has a facebook page and you can check that. I'm sure they will post it when the store opens up.

post #567 of 4813

Glad you love it. I can hardly wait to receive mine.flower.gif I got the shipping notice this morning. Fingers crossed I'll get it on Monday or Tuesday. I'm staying away from the Chanel thread now. I have to save some money for other stuff. I'll just pretend I know nothing about Chanel and their wonderful stuff.whistle.gif

 

Now, if we can only start to see the products of the Strength collection.sigh.gif
