re: quad - I think I managed to talk myself into getting it. I have plenty of shadows to do smoky eyes but they're mostly greys, purples or taupes. it's time some navys joined the team. 

 

the magenta blush somehow managed to make it to my wishlist too. oh dear...

 

at least I'm not interested in the lipglasses. if RIS couldn't tempt me in VV packaging, it doesn't stand a chance in regular packaging. the others aren't my thing anyway.

      i wear lipsticks more so lipglasses  dont get any use. i want the apres chic lipbalms more.

I always passed on Magenta, because even though I loved the color, the texture was dry and powdery at the same time - I hated it. This one will be able to be built up and stay nice and smooth and fused with your natural skin texture - CAN'T WAIT.

 

He also felt the lavender blush was superior to the one from Tres Cheek, which is great - I actually didn't care for that one either, the color just didn't show up on me at all.

 

So, yes, definitely getting both blushes. Probably will get all 3 mattenes too and maaaaaaybe RIS lg (although for some reason I didn't care for it or buy it with VV). The quad sounds nice, but I think I'm better off waiting around for the couple of colors I could really use to come around in an individual format.

 

This collection + Strength + Apres Chic are going to be serious haulage for me!

      thanks liba, i love your little (or long hahaha)reviews!!  i always skip magenta too.

My list consists of all three mattenes, I had originally just wanted Unconvential blush because it's lavender & suppose to be so much better than FoJ. Now I want to add the magenta blush to my list also. It sounds heavenly. Going to skip the glasses and quad. I am looking forward to buying one or both quads from the Strength collection when that is out, depending on swatches and reviews of course.

 

      i also  want both blushes now ...

So here so far is my take on things. Again so sorry I was not able to take any pictures or swatch so i can't give very accurate details.

 

Mattene Lipstick

 

Nocturnal Instincts looks exactly like a mid tone lavender. Upon just looking at it i didn't notice any grey however this could change upon swatching and once applied to the lips. Perhaps the grey tone in it will come out. If this is the color used in the promo pic it doesnt look anything like that in the tube. It looks to be very soft, almost like Lavender Whip lipglass which i believe came out with the Spring Colour Forecast collection.

 

Night Blooming looks like a deeper Outrageously Fun. It also looks like the lipstick version of Revenge is Sweet. Don't know if that makes any sense lol. Sorry i'm not that great at giving detailed descriptions.

 

Seductive Intent did not look vivid purple to me. It seems to be a warm purple color. I could be wrong on this and perhaps swatched or on the lips will look different. I just didn't see a vivid purple color when i opened it up and saw it. Nothing like Violetta or even Heroine. Perhaps because these two colors are more of a violet plum. When i first heard the description for Seductive Intent the first colors that came to mind where Violetta and Heroine so i expected to see something  relatively close to these but nope...not here. It wasn't something that I saw and thought i NEED this on my team purple. Actually it looks a bit mauve IMO.

 

Taste Temptations Quad: Beautiful deep dark colors. Perfect for a smokey eye. Navy blue, lilac/lavender, deep, dark purple, and the oh so famour Carbon. This is not something i need in my collection. I feel just by looking (swatching may change this) that i just may have similar enough color to skip this. Just by looking though i have a feeling this is going to have amazing color payoff. I could be wrong and this could be my having high hopes for the beauty's that really want this quad.

 

Lipglass:

 

Revenge is Sweet: One of my all time favorite lipglasses. I first purchased this with the Venomous Villains Maleficent Collection and fell in love. It's a beautiful pink with violet color. I don't get why on the description it says vivid purple. It's not all out purple...definitely has a pink tone in there. I may post up swatches of this in case anyone who missed out on it the first time is thinking of getting it this time around.

 

Perky is quite lovely. Just by looking it did remind me a bit of lavender whip lipglass but with shimmer.

 

I didn't get to open the last lipglass because it was still in the plastic packaging.

 

Didn't get to see the nail polishes.

 

And finally the blushes. These are must haves for all of the team purple fiends out there.

 

Unconventional is going to look perfect on lighter skinned beautys. It may even go well as a highlighter on medium to deeper skinned beautys. Swatches will determine this!

 

Passionately Tempted: A gorgeous color! This is going to look beautiful on WOC! I have high hopes for this blush and i think this one will give great color payoff. Fingers crossed!

 

Sorry if my reviews aren't that great but i do hope this at least has helped some of you. I really do wish I could have taken swatches and pictures.

Thanks for the review ALivingDoll! bouquet.gif I'm very much interested in all 3 Mattenes (Camden Chic was my first one and i'm excited to try more :)) and Unconventional blush. Passionately Tempted is a maybe, probably skipping the Taste Temptations quad. Finally for once a rather cheap haul ok.gif

I swatched these today and pre-ordered Night Blooming and Seductive Intent, Perky and Unconventional. I was originally going to get Noctural Instincts but didn't like it very much when I swatched it. It did look like a grey-mauve on my hand but it was pretty light. I keep thinking about it and might add it to my pre-order but I'm not sure that I like its sheerness. My hand swatch of Seductive Intent does remind me of Heroine (although I don't own that one so I'm basing this on T's swatches), at least on me. The MA swatched Unconventional on me, and I think it's so pretty. I have both cool and warm tones in my skin so this really makes my skin more cool, which would be great with purples and Spring colors. I didn't like Passionately Tempted at all. It became a bit brown on my skin, so weird. Perky is so pretty with the multi-colored shimmer. Good times looked like a very milky color, almost white. The polishes were pretty basic, nothing too exciting. I don't go for very dark colors so I passed on the palette.

I am getting more and more excited.....especially for the Mattenes and the blushes.

thanks!  I love Revenge is Sweet.  I am going to go and grab one, maybe 2 early Friday morning.  I can't find the one I hauled from VV.  So sad about that cause it is a go too.  There is a gloss I got from the Flirt line called  Berry Bombshell that is similar. Of course there is no surprise there since Flirt and MAC are both EL brands.    Here is a Berry Bombshell swatch http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/wow-this-is-big-flirt-big-flirt-sheer-and-shiny-lipgloss/

I have to swatch Berry Bombshell  next to RIS to see if I need to get 2 RIS at the Macy's event. 

I am excited to makeup shop 12 AM on black friday, while others are grabbing TVs, lol

Wow! Berry Bombshell really does look like Revenge is Sweet.  Right now I only want Revenge is Sweet and maybe the blushes.  I might just wait until this collection is released everywhere rather than trying to pick it up on Black Friday.

Me three....I don't need to get my stuff first, it's not like I don't have plenty of other things to tide me over until this is released to all the stores.

post #793 of 1818

Do we have any theories regarding whether or not this collection will be up on Pro early, or are we figuring it's going online for everyone at the same time on 12/6?

I hope so.

I had a second SA  tell me this collection has been moved to AFTER December 25th. ssad.gif

 

Keep in mind I am in Canada.

That's odd - we usually launch the same day at the US. I've been misinformed by so many SAs that I no longer go by what they say. Even in my MAC store I frequently have information that most of the SAs don't (although the Product Specialist or whatever she's called usually knows more).

post #799 of 1818

Well, now I think I will skip all the mattenes except NI, but both blushes sound like they are have to haves.  If I have Sakura and Full of Joy, do I need another purple blush???  (you know I am only being rhetorical now)

What made you change your mind re: Mattenes? Did you see them at the store?

 

re: purple blush - there's never enough purple blush!

So I mixed Digitalis and Butch Lip Tars together, and I did get a very similar color to Lime Crime Chinchilla. I'm confident you can get an exact match with more tweaking of the mixture.

Hey I have the same problem.  I need to wait for swatches of course.

post #803 of 1818

I'm with you Kimibos. My Mua told me that the Apres Chic lip balms are like a cremesheen and lip balm all in one. They sound amazing!
 

post #804 of 1818

I have Sakura, Azalea Blossom and Vintage Grape blushes and get little use out of them so i'm still debating on getting any of these. Ive got my heart set on the other collections.

That has been my experience in my local shop - and even the Pro shop in San Francisco! I know what collections are coming, i know what the collections feature - and i mean, even a collex that's coming out in a week or two. I can understand if they don't know what's coming out in a few months, but it seems odd when they don't even know what's coming out very soon.

 

It may just be that my fellow Specktrans are just so awesome!

 

But it also sounds like MAC isn't keeping their SAs well informed either.

I think that's true. When I was picking up my Marilyn order I mentioned the Archie's Girls collection to the Product Specialist. She asked me how I know about that and seemed surprised when I told her that it's all over the internet and that there are pics of the products out because they were being used in Fashion Week.

 

I don't even bother asking when collections are coming out; haft the time the SAs know nothing about them (even a week or two before launch - talk about just in time training) and the other half they're misinformed about the date. I just check here.

 

I suppose it's possible that we're getting the collection later than in the US, but I'd be surprised.

The book says Jan. - I got it from the store manager it was pushed up, but if the SA was only going by the book, they might think it's Jan.

 

Personally, I was surprised it was pushed up in the first place, so if it falls back again to Jan. I don't think I'd be too shocked.

I love Sakura (one of my faves), but I really disliked FoJ and didn't buy it. I'm hoping this will be the one for me instead of FoJ, but from what I could tell from my MA, this one will be more in line with FoJ than Sakura, which is pinker. It sounds like both the blushes are the standouts in this collection, even beyond the mattenes - but yeah, I'm getting them too!!! The mattene formula has its issues but I still really like it a lot, especially on days when I just want something that feels lighter on my lips than lipstick (if only the Kissables came back in more colors....those feel the best!)
