So sorry for the delay!

So glad he is feeling better. I am curious about the lavender blush otherwise this is a skip for me.

Just played around with the collection. I was not blown away by the items but I guess my mind is more on Dec 26th. Anyway, my impression is as follows
Perky LG lots of shine, a little shimmer, minimal color, more like a over priced lip moisterizer with high sheen
Good times LG, too pasty looking on me
Revenge is Sweet.....I like. Gel like consistency IMO
The pallette is not my thing, colors are too dark except for a light lilac in upper left corner
Great for smokey eye look I guess
I tried the mattes just for you guys
They are soft and silky with excellent color payoff esp the two brighter ones
One is a bright pink and the other is more pinkish purplish if that makes sense
The mauve one was the dryest and least impressive to me
The blushes are beautiful
Love the soft light lilac one for lighter complexions ......didn't swatch it
The magenta one is a more brighter pink to me than magenta but it is pretty nonetheless
A bit dusty with some powdery falling out though
I didn't look at the nailpolish, two fluidlines, a liner and brush blush 129 long angle and of course would not be the same without the mascara......lol
I have swatches on my hands but not able to take a pic at this time

Katred, Kimibos, & Michelemu21...thank you so much! My poor little guy has had perfect attendance 2 months in a row...that's great for a 5 year old! lol. I'd leave him home to rest for the weekend but he really misses school. I just hope this lasts throughout the rest of his years in school! girlhaha.gif

Thanks for the info Debbs! I'll be checking this out tomorrow and have really high hopes for the mattenes. I  heart.gifany lip product that's blue-pink so i know i want Night Blooming.

post #728 of 1818

I'm just lurking this thread because I was so happy about this collection (I love love love purple lippies, I was lucky last month to find Potent Fig mattene - here in Italy we haven't chances to find old products in stores usually - and I'm loving it!) and it will be not released in my country but I'm curious about purple lipsticks and the cool fard...

 

I read you were talking about blue lipsticks and stuff like that... Inglot this year released a whole collection of 6 lipsticks (I'm writing a post for my blog about it, I was so curious to have a chance to see them live and last week I finally did it *_* ), they look like really interesting ^^
 

post #729 of 1818

ohh i went to my nordstrom counter and no collection there yet. my SA told me to call her next week. ssad.gif i really wanted to pre order.

       yes. i really want to know more about the lipsticks. they are the only ones im not sure about.

I have Passionately Tempted, Perky, Revenge is Sweet on hold although I may just get RIS only which I am sure will not be opened for another year or so as too many LG in rotation presently. Need to save for those two couture brushes, the pigments, even tho they are perm if I don't get them immediately they will be overlooked due to new limited collections. I also have my eyes on most of mineralized eyeshadows, a few perm eye liners and the new eyeshadow brush.
post #732 of 1818
I think it is a Macy's exclusive for a while? I am not sure. The bright mattenes are super bright, soft and silky with excellent color pay off. The light one, mauve? is already faded on my hand. I only wear lipgloss tho. Perky lipgloss will be good for the winter as it makes my lips feel so soft and moisterized but I don't think I can justify it with so many other items to put my cash towards
post #733 of 1818

I'm interested in that new brush as well and the mineralize blushes, stereo rose msf, mineralize lip balms and 2 or 3 lipsticks
 

post #734 of 1818

You know now that you mention that Debbs i'm having second thoughts about Night Blooming. I wonder how close it would be in comparison to MUFE's Aqua Rouge #10. I really love that lip color especially because it lasts all day! I really need to save for the mineralize collection coming out.

post #735 of 1818
I am waiting to see how the mineralized skinfinishes and blushes will look on darker skintones. I guess I am brainwashed by certain colors only being suitable for my skintone. Off thread....sorry
post #736 of 1818

I heard from someone who saw the lippies that Night Blooming is similar to CYY (though probably more like the BR release than the original).  Anyone who's seen it have thoughts on that?  I think someone may have mentioned a while back that it reminded them of a toned down CYY.  And then the question becomes...if I have CYY, is it worth getting NB?

post #737 of 1818
I don't own a single lipstick so I am not able to compare them IRL......weird I kno. I gave my Deeply Adored MM lipstick from the event to my mom. I can't control my addictions so I try to avoid finding new loves. Ask me about lipglosses and I am good. The mattenes are primarily soft and smooth with excellent color payoff
post #738 of 1818

I missed that ChosenOne but thanks for the comment. I'm trying my hardest to avoid purchasing products that are close enough in color. Mac has made a ton of lipsticks described as "mid tone blue pink" so i'm pretty sure there must be some dupes out there for NB. Question is do i have any dupes for it? haha!

And great job to mommy for keeping up as well, my kids as well get perfect attendance to try to get student of the year and I'm quite lucky they don't get sick often so we've had perfect attendance forever. Lol I also hope it lasts forever too my daughter is in fourth and son in first so we have ways to go but so far so good.

Same here I don't care too much about this line although that blush is kinda calling my name since I have nothing like it, but I'm also like I'm not too much of a lavender fan so this line might be a skip, crossing fingers it is cuz lord knows I don't need anymore stuff
post #741 of 1818
I can't believe this comes out in a week we have no swatches yet!!

I should just wear Full of Joy more often.

I'm glad your little one is feeling better. My son never missed a day of school for 6 years. When he had chicknpox in kindergarten it was during Christmas break. Then a few years later everyone was coming down with the flu and so many students were absent that they closed school on a Wednesday and to return the following Monday. My son came down with that Thursday.

 

I do wish you luck that he will continue to love school and do well. My son did continue to love going to school but not for the right reasons. To him every day was a social event and he was the host. His antics got him a one way ticket to detention several times. Hopefully your son will enjoy school without feeling the need to entertain everyone within a 50 mile radius.

Excellent review, thank you!

 

I'm so disappointed about the mauve lippie. I wanted all the mattenes and the lilac blush but perhaps I should go with the two bright ones (the lilac blush stays, obviously heart.gif)

 

Do you find the magenta blush to be similar to any other MAC blushes? TIA.

post #749 of 1818

kinda off topic but does anyone remember an ancient Lancome Colour Gloss Lipstick called Gris Chintz? I think it was 1999 or 2000 when I bought it (showing my age lol) and funnily enough it still hasn't assumed the smell and consistency of toxic waste. It's a greyed lavender, and definitely not mauve (*cough* MAC *cough*). strange that a brand like Lancome released such an edgy shade back then (well, i thought it was edgy).

 

ah, memories...

 

*closes eyes*
