I got the email telling me about this code less than an hour after I had already placed my order.  Typical.  Lol, oh well!

at least there's still time....

it's kind of a bonus that some people bought these at the black friday event so we have swatches etc to go by....

i was just looking back at cartoonchic's swatches and i'm not sure why temptalia compared nightblooming with candy-yum yum in her review.  they look quite different.  but maybe it's a skin tone thing?

Had a feeling it would be the first to go. Not too sure what I think just yet. Some lip swatch pics it looks purple and some pink. th_dunno.gif

Yah I hope it turns out purple on me. I need something close to Heroine. I didn't get a backup of that lipstick and now I'm running out.

i feel ya on the swatch confusion. i'm hoping to go to the counter when it's released in person to see how amazing or horrible it looks on me: i want purple, not pink. in the swatches that made me want it, it looked similar enough to heroine, and night blooming similar enough to candy yum yum.

I'm hoping it looks like this on me, but its a long shot... http://www.makeupbyshannyn.com/2012/11/mac-taste-temptation-lipsticks.html?m=1
I'm loving the way Night Blooming looks here too!

I'm so excited flower.gif

And with US prices it only came to £39 including shipping and everything - if I'd bought them here then it would've cost £45.50!

 

Great news! We have another purple convert!

Dammit! I'm so bummed Seductive Intent sold out already, I was going to buy it after I went to the bank tomorrow. UGH! Does anyone have an extra SI they'd like to sell me? I'm so sad, that was pretty much the only item I was really excited about getting from this collection. I literally fell asleep and woke up to it being sold out. :(

 

I'm so sick of MAC doing this... seriously. I can't deal with them releasing such limited quantities that I hardly even have time to make a decision before it sells out.

post #1275 of 1818
Seductive Intent and all the other stuff will be in stores soon^ hope isn't lost.

I thought so too at first but I saw some light skin tones that it looked completely purple on as well... Very interesting lippi
post #1277 of 1818

I just saw that SI is sold out. Do you think it looks close to Heroine or Violetta?

post #1278 of 1818
Jaquelyn- I think it's close
post #1279 of 1818

^Ok, thanks! Then I don't need SI at all. Instead, I'm going to get Strong Woman l/s from Strength collection.

You still have the chance to buy it in store. Good luck.

Found this pic on Instagram. They seem pretty cose, with Heroine being a tad bit darker. May pull identical on the lips though.

I was talking to a MA at my local MAC store yesterday about the limited quantities they get in for these collections, and she had an interesting explanation.  She said that the number of each product that a store gets is greatly based on how similar products have sold in the past at that location.  For example, at this location they received about a dozen Unconventional blushes to sell, but only 2 or 3 Passionately Tempted blushes (with one of each blush being made into a tester).  Bold blushes don't generally sell well at that location, but lighter shades do, hence the unbalanced distribution.  At locations where more customers are into brighter, bolder blushes, more Passionately Tempted will be available.

 

I still think sending only 2 or 3 of a limited edition product to a store is borderline insanity, but I found this information interesting anyway!

I saw it was still available on Bloomingdales.

Don't forget Belk.  The ebayers don't know about that one yet (and don't tell them).  Hope everyone gets what they want.  So we are all skipping the quad?  I think I don't love blues enough to take a chance on a quad that may be chalky and has the dreaded Carbon in it.  WWSD?

Me either. I need to see it on more people before I decide.

 

Night Blooming looks so beautiful in that link.

To be honest, I don't think that is the case. It's rather a matter where one can use the Pro discount vs. stores/online stores where the discount does not apply.

 

 

Nope. :-)
