MAC Taste Temptations Collection (November 2012; December 2012) - Page 33

post #961 of 1818


Seductive Intent is lovely! Looks like this is going to be my first mattene, I can't wait! heart.gif

post #962 of 1818

so, Revenge is Sweet lipglass is a repromote? it's the same one from the villains collection?

post #963 of 1818

I'm getting the Mattenes, Unconventional Blush and RIS. I already have RIS from VV and FoJ, Fresh Amour & Rare Exotic Mattenes (in anticipation of the new ones I'm wearing a combo of FA and RE, they actually give a nice, intense colour similar to Night Blooming), but well... you can never have too many:

 

1000

 

These are from http://www.temptalia.com/swatch-gallery?brand=11&action=Sort&type=156 of course, I had to take a screenshot to keep the pics together.

RIS looks lovely on Karen eyelove.gif

I was determined that RIS would stay off my wishlist but now I'm not so sure...

 

 

Inner voice1: It's too sheer! You don't even like lipglasses that much anyway. You did the right thing by leaving it out of your CP.

 

Inner voice2: It's purple dammit! And so what if it's sheer? You can layer it over other lippies. Imagine how gorgeous it would look layered over Grey Friday! You need it!

 

Yours truly: Aaaargh!!!

Taste Temptations won't be sold here, but whatever, I'm disappointed with Unconventional... :( It is too pink, I expected it to be really levander. 

post #966 of 1818

I was hoping Night Blooming would be closer to Outrageously Fun since MAC seems to have no intention on ever restocking it...but it looks completely different.  I think I might pass.

post #967 of 1818

So far,I'm most tempted by Unconventional. I have a lot of pale, cool pink blushes, but it's also a colour I use a lot, so I don't think another would go amiss. I am a bit disappointed that it's not a true lilac, though. 

post #968 of 1818

But the shadows of Taste Temptations are quite secondary.

There's a MAC counter in NY that still has a few OF lippies left in stock, and I'm pretty sure they can ship it to you.  If you want the info, PM me!

Thanks for doing this! I think I may skip Night Blooming and just get the two other mattenes - I already have Pink Pigeon! Hooray, getting my list down to two items!

post #972 of 1818

I'm just getting a Revenge Is Sweet backup when it launches online.  Skipping the blushes - I have Magenta already and Full of Joy and I don't wear either much.  But this is good news as I've been makeup shopping like crazy especially from other brands.  My wishlist is long.  I think out of everything coming out I'm looking forward to Apres Chic?? the most.

I totally agree with you! I don't like how the Christmas decorations hit the stores right after Thanksgiving. It kinda ties into the Black Friday rush. I love Thanksgiving! Have a great one!

I can't believe i'm saying this but i was thinking the same thing after seeing these comparison swatches. I already have Dear Diary and am getting Pink Pigeon for sure, i don't know if i need yet another lipstick shade THAT similar to those two shrugs.gif Need to have a good think about this lol.

Yes. I love it. Since my bottom lip is a pinkish color, RIS shows up really well. I misplaced my original in my room somewhere, so I have to grab one more.

As soon as I saw Night Blooming, I felt like it looked extremely familiar! I guess it will be good for those that want to back up the shade, or missed out in the past. Then of course there are hundreds of people who will never know about the same color being released time and time again.
post #977 of 1818

I'll skip on this collection, I prefer buying from Après Chic or Strength in fact. Christine from Temptalia made a review of the quad, looks chalky and really bad. The blushes look pretty but I have enough blushes so I'll wait until the other M.A.C collections are launched.

Thank you for this.  I already have QS, DD, and PP, so I should definately skip NB.  Too similar!

Thanks for the comparison swatches, it's really helpful! :D   I'll skip on Night Blooming since I'm more interested in Pink Pigeon.  Petals and Peacocks looks lovely though, maybe that one will be repromoted some day ~wishful thinking~.  I'm probably skipping the rest of the mattenes and just go for Revenge is Sweet lg and Perky lg.  I'm still on the fence with Unconventional blush because I don't own any blushes, but the color is very pretty.  I recently bought a dress that matches the color of Unconventional blush, so maybe I'll take a chance and buy an actual blush for the first time.

Lol, and then there are those of us who do know and still want to get it anyway.

The mall I'm going to is closed for remodeling. Only three stores are still open during the remodel because they have their own store entrances. Macy's is one of the stores. There also doesn't seem to be a lot of traffic at this mall in general. I'm not expecting a ton of people to show up at midnight, and especially not for makeup.

Damnit, RIS is as sheer as it was when it first launched. I was hoping it'd somehow be more opaque this time around. I don't think I want it anymore. *le sigh*

It will show up more lavender-lilac on pale NW complexions. One more yellow-toned complexions, I'm afraid that this asset might get lost though.

post #984 of 1818

I love love love RIS.  It is a gorgeous color.   If it is your first time getting it, you need a back up.

post #985 of 1818

Those comparison swatches are great. Does anyone know what Nocturnal Instincts might be similar to? Still wondering if I should pick it up when I pick up my pre-order on Friday.

Thanks for posting this - I know it takes a while to line all those up on her site!

It's got that GORGEOUS natural sheen - that totally sells it for me. I wind up skipping most of the very pale cool pink blushes because they so often look powdery. This one is the opposite of powdery....so beautiful! It looked equally wonderful on Karen and Christine and neither of them have pale complexions, so it just goes to show....

Night Blooming still looks a bit tempting, but I honestly have Pink Pigeon (which isn't my favorite), and Petals & Peacocks, not to mention Quick Sizzle, Zen Rose and Rare Exotic - don't have Dear Diary, which looks most similar to my eye.

 

If I skip any of them, it'll be Night Blooming. 

post #988 of 1818
I'm in Canada and don't wanna wait til online launch ssad.gif damnit lol I'm skipping night blooming also, but I want the light blush, other 2 mattenes and RIS and perky :$ even though I rarely wear lipgloss at all lol.. The hype! Always gets me
post #989 of 1818

Well, after visiting a number of swatch links -- thanks to everyone who has posted them!bouquet.gif -- my list is diminishing

 
Mattene Lipstick
=> Nocturnal Instincts - "Mid-tone greyed lavender" - FOR SURE
Seductive Intent - "Vivid purple - maybe, pass if too plum
 
Lipglass
Revenge is Sweet - "Vivid Purple" - maybe - looks interesting in the tube, but not so good in the lip swatches
=> Perky - "Mid-tone shimmering lilac" - FOR SURE
 
Powder Blush
=> Unconventional - Pale shimmering lavender - FOR SURE
In some photos it looks too pink, but in others it's definitely lavender - warmer perhaps than Full of Joy but still lavender, and i think those latter are more accurate, i hope, i hope...
 
So, 3 FOR SUREs, and 2 maybes... but, of course, this could change when i see them "for reals".

Sheesh, this year i've seen a lot of places where the Christmas lights went up the day after Halloween.

 

That's better than a few years ago when the Christmas stuff went up in mid-September!

 

So the day after Thanksgiving is just fine with me.
