You are so right! We used to have an Inglot counter about 10 seconds closer to my work than the Mac counter but they had to pull off. No success. There still is one at a mall (I have to take a bus) but I have not bought practicly anything since they came here.

I wouldn't be surprised if they start giving their products sexy names in the near future.

post #694 of 1818

That's good to know that they won't get another shipment. It's certainly the best to go to the preview and avoid the hassle with the online release - at whatever day/time it might go online.

I've seen pictures where some can wear blue lipstick very well and it looks like high fashion. Then on others, not so much. I googled blue lipstick. I'm kind of fascinated by it. I guess there was a time when orange and purple lipstick seemed strange too.

girlhaha.gif  I guess the trick is to find a blue shade that suits your skin tone, like with reds. The blue lipstick she's wearing makes her look like she has hypothermia.

Inglot is a Polish company and sells in the multi-lingual EU, so i'm not really surprised their products are by numbers. Polish is, after all, not a broadly international language. Make Up For Ever, which, IIRC, was founded in Paris, usually just numbers their products, too.

 

Now i completely agree that numbers do not usually bring to mind a color or mood and are not as mnemonic as words for most of us, except maybe those who are synesthesiacs.

 

Perhaps if Inglot expands in the US and other primarily Anglo-phone countries they'll give their products names more evocative and memorable than, oh, say, "291".

 

Do you have some cosmetic industry insider info, Mac-Guy?

Cool! Thanks for the link.

Uh, she's Ke$ha. I've never seen a photo when she didn't appear to be a mess. It's clearly part of her "look".

 

Now the photos i saw using CartoonChic's link showed a range of blues. Most look like LimeCrime's "No She Didn't" - opaque, fairly matte, sky blue - but there were some others.

 

So far the blue lip products i own (from cool to warm) are:

-- OCC Lip Tar in Butch - satin periwinkle blue
-- Lime Crime Carousel Lip Gloss in Loop-de-Loop - dark sapphire with purple duochrome & purple glitter

-- Lime Crime Lipstick in No She Didn't - opaque matte sky blue

-- MAC Glaze Lipstick in Summer Shower - sheer aqua with lots of blue dazzle

-- MAC Kissable (liquid) Lipcolour in Peacocky - satin medium teal blue with pink and silver micro-shimmer
 
I will confess i don't wear these colors every day. I am not terribly fashionable, but when i wear really unusual lip colors, i do my whole face, strengthen my eyes, gird myself with confidence and self-assurance, and wear solid colored clothing - i wear black too much, but, hey, it goes with everything...
 
When i say i do my whole face, i don't mean i plaster on a deep layer of a multitude of stuff, but that i do use foundation which i don't wear every day, may apply blush (or not), and spend a bit more time on my eyes, to balance the lip look.
 
Also, i wouldn't wear blue for a business meeting or regular work situation.

I called my MAC @ Macy's counter and spoke to the MUA I always deal with and she told me that i can do a pre-order for TT. She said that they already have the collection in store and i can stop by to take a look at them...which i plan on doing first thing tomorrow morning. I was told a few days back when i called that there would be no pre-orders from a different MUA so yay! I'm so excited to look at everything. Makes the whole being there at 12 am less stressful. I can't wait to see the items. cheerleader.gifWould anyone like me to check anything in particular out? I'd be happy to take and post pics if i can. Please let me know!

No, it isn't completely opaque, but it definitely not sheer. It gives a very good coating of color. And it's less sticky than MAC glosses. It could also be used in a lighter coating to change a lipstick's color, although i haven't tried that yet.

post #711 of 1818
If Ke$ha didn't look a hot mess, I don't think I'd ever recognize her.

post #713 of 1818

Yes, please. I really would love to know if Nocturnal Instincts is really a greyed lavender mattene or not and Unconvential Blush, if you can, please let us know if it's a true lavender blush. I've been waiting for one. Thank you, ALivingDoll!friends.gif

Very nice that you get the chance to look at everything in advance! thmbup.gif Can't wait to hear what you think about the Mattenes & the lavender blush, and thanks! amuse.gif

post #715 of 1818

Right now I'm thinking I will skip this collection. I will need comparison swatches of the lavender blush and FoJ, I'll only get it if there's a noticable difference. I'm still interested in the lavender Mattene, but I'm not sure how it'll look in real life. I like the description, but the promo pic of it not so much. I'm lookinf for a mauvy-gray pinky nude lippie, so I have hopes for this one, but you never know with MAC's color descriptions. I'm waiting for swatches.

I'd love a purple nail polish, but I'm still miffed about the recent price increase, so I'm trying to skip those too.

Hi beauty's! So i have good news and bad news...the bad news is my little guy got sick on us last night therefore I was not able to make it today to MAC. The good news is we took him to the doc's this morning, his fever is gone and will be good enough to go back to school tomorrow so that means once he's left at school, I shall make my way to MAC. So sorry for the delay!
