I would never have expected any green until I read your review!

It's a very greenish/bluish grey and I guess if you have warm coloring around your eyes naturally, it will bring out the green tone even more (I've got green eyes too, maybe that also makes a difference?) I wish it'd looked more plum on me, but the look it had was very beautiful anyways. I'm torn between Fireside and Winter Pursuit - they looked pretty similar on me, so I feel like I shouldn't cave and get both, lol. I think they'll look more different on other folks, though.

If Fireside looks so close to WP, I am a bit worried that it might be too warm for me.

But nevertheless I will get it and hope that it works for me (I am very cool toned).

I expected Frost at Midnight to look a lot different than this.  I guess I can skip it.

post #1235 of 3266

Right now I am creating a short list for this collection.  Well short for me.  I am skipping the liners and the msfs.  I still have several bu's of stereo rose. I will probably skip the blushes since my blush stash grew logarithmically this year.

 

I want to limit myself to a couple of ls and a couple of shadows.  Now I need to decided which ones before it goes "live" on the website to prevent multiple orders and spending too much $$. I also want the shadow brush.

 

I am trying to be strong and not haul too much.  But I love mineralized collections.  I am ignoring the lipbalms, pretending they don't exist.

Thanks for the link.

OK, are my eyes playing tricks on me? Cause it looks kind of taupe-y in the swatch. huh2.gif

I know, I thought it was blue. shrugs.gif But if it really looks like that swatch I think I need to add it to my list. It looks super smooth too. drools.gif

Anybody know anything about the Haute Attitude lippie? Probably the only thing I will pick up based on the description, but anybody knows how it would look on a NC30 (more neutral than warm) skin tone? Thanks and happy stalking!

I've been keeping in mind your review of the purple liner so it may be a pass for me.

 

I can't go on the 26th to pick up my goodies (company for dinner) so I plan to send my daughter. I was hoping to swatch the lipsticks and choose then. I guess what I'm wondering is do you think these lipsticks will look good on NW20? I don't mind working with them a bit.

 

Thanks for your help.

wow I really slept on stero rose. When I first saw the swatches and everyone was raving about it I thought it was nothing special about it. Now I see other swatches and this swatch I'm in love smiles.gif.
post #1254 of 3266

I've just known that this collection is already up in Italy!! (at last in one store when they told me it would have been up in january)..... now I guess I'll do a "blind order" because I dont want to miss something..... I wanted to go and see a collection in store but at the moment is not possible!!

My haul should be:

 

Fireside
Frost at midnight
Apres Chic

Warm Companion and Cozy up are maybes because I haven't seen any good swatches and I don't really know what to expect although they shoud fit my skintone quite well.. and I love nude shades ....

post #1255 of 3266

censored.gifangry.gifI've been stalking non stop. Why won't MAC just put this online already?????

      i didnt do lipstick swatches today  sorry . i did swatched them yesterday but i spent like 3hrs in the mall and didnt take pictures.

      apres chic- is like a strawberry red color. pretty 

      haute altitude- really pretty soft pink. must get if you have money.

      hot chocolate- plummy brown

     warm companion i think- like a light frosty yellow. its a weird color but pretty in my opinion for layering

     the orange one, peach one- its like a light milky orange it swacthed dry on my hand. 

 

     the lipbalms dont suck to me, the price and the fact that im broke sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rawr. I'm growing impatient with this and Strength online launches lol. 

 

I'm trying to keep it simple with this line though and just get Stereo Rose and Haute Altitude. Nothing else really appeals to me sigh.gif
