Like one on top and the other one on the bottom?

I called the Mac Pro Store in San Francisco, they were already sold out of the PiPi. I did not ask about anything else since I just wanted the lipsticks. I ordered Saturday and they were delivered today. T

One of the members tipped me about the SF store. I called and to my surprised the SA said "Ok, they will be shipped today." They charged me 7 USD for 5 lipsticks.

That's great that they shipped you your order already. Normally they hold things until the collection's official release date, then they ship the order out.

This is my first time posting pics and doing this comparison pics so I am a little embarrased of posting my mouths all over the internex machinesss haha.

 

Anyway, doesn't it look super deep in the tube? 

 

 

 

 

From left to right:

 

Red Racer, Russian Red, Deeply Adored, Charmed I am sure, Absolute Power. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am not sure about my skin tone since I wear Laura Mercier most of the time but  I do have a MAC face and body foundation in C2 and a Studio Fix in NC15. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also got Party Parrot but you all know that one. Sadly the store was out of Pink Pigeon :(

I called the same SF pro store and the SA did not even let me pre order by phone and I live on the freakin city. I am so pissed tomorrow I will be talking to a manager

Aw I am sorry guys. Maybe I just got really lucky. The girl that helped me said that the collection was already out and she took my phone and said she would call me back after checking the stock. She called me right back and let me order it. She UPS'ed the package to me the same day. I wish I could remember her name.

Usually the sf pro store are really nice but that SA brushed off so fast. If they would know how much money we spend on mac. Don't they get commission? I will try again tomorrow maybe I will be lucky. I do not care for pink pigeon but would like to get the other lippies and mostly the blushes. Plz do more swatches especially of firm form and strong women. There aren't any

Its weird I called a few counters also and most told me no pre-orders for this collection. I think I too might have just got lucky. BUT not lucky enough to have them shipped my the MA. That was super nice of her.

WOOOHHOOO Amazing reviews, thanks Libia for the reviews so now definately lipsticks and both blushes and Embrace Me Backup!

I'm starting to want it too! I've all the reds you have minus Kanga Rouge and plus Scarlet Ibis, Ruffian Red, Love Goddess, Rocker, Legerdary mattene (it falls in the red category for me) and Chanel Dragon and Famous. Do I really need this? Liba what do you think, is it really that unique?

post #1010 of 4811

^ I noticed that heavily applied Absolute Power is pinker than Charmed I'm Sure so it's a no-no for me. So I think this collection is a skip for me. cheerleader.gif

Hooray for some swatches, FINALLY!!!  Thank you, CharlieKelly (you lucky thing, you!) and KMQE716!!  Both swatches were immensely helpful in my decision making, since the lippies are the only thing I really have my eye on in this collection.  I think AP will be a skip for me.  As beautiful as it is, I have similar colors and Deeply Adored is still #1 in my book.  SW, however...  eyelove.gif  That lippie is the only one that has stayed on my list since the info for this collection was first released, and now it's confirmed that it stayed on my list for a reason!  Can't wait to get my hands on one and see how it compares to Violetta and Seductive Intent!!!

post #1016 of 4811

Oh snap.  I feel the purple frenzy coming on.  I am going to commit felonies and misdemeanors if necessary to get this.  That purple is just sickening!

I don't know whether to be happy or in misery.  I already have Heroine and just got Bright Plum, Potent Fig, Seasoned Plum, (I have Bust Out, Lavender Mews and High Top as well) and trying to convince myself I don't need another purple lippy but this one seems very necessary.  Oh well, at least I feel justified skipping Seductive Intent, it was too reddish to be what I would call purple...
