They had me buy a MAC gift card for the purchase total and they apply that to the order rather than just leaving my credit card number as in the past. She said they were expecting the product in early December (say what?!) but that she wasn't sure when I would be able to pick it up. I told her I had heard it was after Christmas and she said that sounded about right!

 

Like I said, I'm glad to have it out of the way!

yeah so you don't have to worry about it selling out lol. I should pre order too, but I would like to see what the other lipsticks look like. It comes out right after christmas? I'll be broke lol.

I'm so confused...  All I know if this and TT are online only, I might have to miss it.

:) I thought the same as you! The sheen is what makes this natural. It's hard to explain. I wouldn't call it a shimmer more like a natural sheen. But the sheen works because of the color. It makes the taupe shade way more wearable and it looks natural with the right amount.  It's like the sheen make's it less intense... in a way.  I NEVER like contour powder because it looks entirely too muddy. I love Notorious. :)

I'm using Make Up For Ever's Aqua Lip Pencil in 18C with MAC Vegas Volt lipstick. It's just a tiny bit brighter than the lipstick.

I use Lasting Sensation with Watch Me Simmer and Sail La Vie. It looks orange on me, with a hint of coral :) I'm NW15.

Lasting Sensation is coral on me. Entertain Me lip pencil is orange. I wear Lasting Sensation with my coral lipsticks: MAC Vegas Volt, MAC Watch Me Simmer, Revlon Siren, Chanel Flamboyante, etc.

 

I like to use Auburn for my orange-red lipsticks like Sail La Vie and So Chaud. It adds more definition for my deeper skin tone.

I called around to see if I could pre-order this collection. The stores I called said they're not doing pre-orders. But I really like how the SA at one of the stores I called seemed genuinely excited for this collection. She raved about how great everything is and said Firm Form is to die for. I can't wait!

albertamacblush.jpg  i aslo found this one about a new strobe lotion macalberta.jpg

and here's what elle magazines says:
When it comes to creating Spring Summer 2013's sun kissed glow, MAC have clearly been doing more extra homework. A new Bronze Strobe Liquid Lotion will be added to its existing light-reflecting line. Topped with the previously unseen Poised and Taupe Shape Powder Blushes in a confident swipe from one cheekbone to the other, catching the bridge of the nose en route, plus a curtain of side swept hair bobbi-pinned in place over one ear and the Californian preppster just went straight to the top of our new beauty season class.

My local store was sold out but I called another store and they have 5 in stock. You're only "allowed" to do a phone order if you're already in their system. I put 2 on hold.. if anyone needs a CP please let me know before 5pm since that's when I'll be calling back to give her my credit card info.

I would love a CP, but I'm probably too late!

Is it because Chanel.com doesn't ship outside the US?  I thought I read something about that.  I ordered the other day and they shipped out within 24 hours.+
