SI is way more neon bright and Mehr is more muted and with a touch of plummy brown pink for me.  No brown at all for SI.  SI is closer to Bright Plum or Violetta. (Or Heroine of course)


Thanks hun, I already got Seductive Intent and I love it but I'm still waffling on Nocturnal Instincts. I was wondering how it compares to Mehr because I put Mehr on my holiday wishlist.

Sorry sweetie I misread there.  I have both and can maybe do a comparison tonight.  I think NI is a little lighter but would that actually be noticeable on lips--maybe yes and maybe no.  Mehr is just the most gorgeous color and finish.  I will do a side by side lip comparison tonight and report back.  I just got NI and have Mehr from the first release (Mickey Contractor)

I ordered only RIS from Nordies online. I remembered mattenes being drying on my lips - and just as well. of course they are all sold out. Beautiful colors. This is what I love about Mac! I will prob still get pink pigeon when it comes out -that's it. Ill just have to use my prep and prime, lip scrub and balm religiously!!!!!

I wasn't planning on getting anything until Strength, but I placed a hold for Seductive Intent and Night Blomming Mattenes as well as Passionately Tempted blush. I have no sef-control. holysheep.gif

I had RIS on hold, but I let that go. I don't think I like MAC l/g and I've got 3-4 already open and one unswatched. After seeing swatches I don't think RIS would be that special on the lips. I purchased from the Making Pretty Collection instead. Then today I thought about calling my SA back for Seductive Intent (lemming since it sold out LOL), but I don't think the cool color would suit me. So far I've skipped this whole collection.

Passionately Tempted is beautiful I have it on right now.

 

I picked up a BU of Sedutive Intent. I'm now done with this collection.

Thanks duckrodeo!! I ordered NI and if I also get Mehr under my tree I will be a happy girl indeed :) Or I'll just order it myself one day...a girl can never have enough lip colors!

post #1540 of 1818
I only bought Seductive Intent. It's different from anything else I own. I really like it. The texture isn't a problem at all. I have noticed, though that I have more lip lines than ever (damn getting old). Maybe I need to start some injections? Botox? Nah, I'll just go with the flow. I don't wanna end up looking like a duck. th_crazy.gif

I got almost the entire collection minus one lg and one np. this collection was totally me tho winks.gif

Did you get the quad too? It hasn't received much love from the blogosphere and I'm really curious what, erm, normal folk think of it.

post #1546 of 1818
I got 2 seductive intent one for me and one for my sister in law, although I looked at the other stuff I strictly ignored it, I want too much w après and strength collections coming out

macys always sells out fast.

I went in to try on Unconventional and was sorely disappointed.  I'm a N15/20 and it just looked strange on me.  Chalky I'd say.  And I look great in cool-toned pink blush!  I guess I'll just stick with the ones I've got.

post #1549 of 1818
ooops I forgot about that !! I did not get the quad either, I knew something else was missing lol.

As it is on the sheer side, it works well as a highlighter.

oh they're both so pretty!

I went to see the TT collection in stores and bought more than what I wanted. /no self control 

 

The mattene formula didn't dry me at all and it was quite good with and without a lip balm.  I bought Nocturnal Instincts and Seductive Intent (first purple lipstick).  I skipped on Night Blooming even though it was a beautiful color, but it seemed the most dupable out the three mattenes.  NI is a cool lavender grey that to my surprise looked great on my skintone.  I prefer this one over Budding Love lipstick because I don't know what to do with the latter.  I don't know how to describe it, but the color of NI felt more natural for me.  Seductive Intent was another surprise for me because I usually avoid purple like the plague.  It turned out pinky-violet on me which was a bit weird for me because it looks more purple on other people, but I really liked it so I got it before a flock of women went after that color to try it on.  I also got Perky lipglass and Unconventional (my first actual blush).  The item I was interested the most since the beginning, revenge is Sweet, turned out to be a bit of a let down for me.  I didn't mind the sheer color or the pink tones, but I guess I hyped it too much before trying it on.

same here. initially i purchased night blooming, nocturnal instincts and passionately tempted online. i just went into the store today to check out the collection....so i ended up also picking up the blue nail polish.

 

i kind of want the quad, but the carbon content is bothering me....the other three shades are very pretty though! was someone saying that prussian is a dupe for the blue purple? is there a dupe for the deep sparkly purple?

i know, i wasn't that thrilled by unconventional when i swatched it.  it didn't strike me as being different enough from full of joy...perhaps that wouldn't be a big deal since the formula is improved, but it looked a little ashy on me. oh well....more money for strength!

I went into my store wearing Blooming Lovely today, just to make the comparison with NI - it's lighter and a lot bluer. I think the fact that NI is not whitish and not too light or bright really helps it look really good, plus of course, being a bit pinker than BL. They are kind of similar, though, so if you only want really blue-lavender lipsticks and nothing too mauve or pinkish, maybe NI won't be what you're looking for. I think it's beautiful and very wearable, unlike many lavenders, which are kind of tricky to pull off and a little on the avant-guard side. My only question is if I back it up or not!!

I wasn't originally going to get it, but when I tried Perky I loved it - it makes my lips look really full! I didn't back it up, though. I might regret that later.....

I was originally just going to get PT, as I wasn't in love with Unconventional.  The only reason I got both was so I could use them together, exactly the way the MA suggested to you.  The combo of the two is more amazing than the individual blushes, for sure!

post #1559 of 1818

Well, I ordered NI, Perky, and Unconventional. I love how unique this collection is at least compared to my collection.
