It seems to be sold out online everywhere it was being carried.  You might want to call a few local MAC stores/counters in your area.  I looked at several online department stores and NONE of them had HC.  They had some of the other lippies in AC but HC was no where to be found.  Good luck!

I finally got hot chocolate to work on me!!! I gently dotted it on my lips and rubbed together. I finished with NYX sand pink lip liner and I really like it. It's more work then I wanted but that's ok!

True

I placed an order on Apres Chic l/s on Nordstrom since it's a backorder that they will ship it on the 21st which I don't mind since I found out that my pre-order was sold to someone else since I have texted the MUA in Vegas about that I'm ready to pay for my pre-order and never heard back. In case that my order of Apres Chic l/s is cancelled, does anyone have an extra Apres Chic l/s that I can CP from? Thanks!

I'm  not loving it on me either. I've tried it with several liners (Absolutely It, Morning Coffee and Burgandy) but I'm not warming up to it. I might swap it away; I'm trying to avoid keeping makeup that I know I'll never reach for. I was hoping for another Glamourdaze and this just isn't it.

 

If anyone can't find HC and wants one that's been swatched 2-3x, please PM me. I'm going to cull a few items I never wear (NARS Dolce Vita,  Star Wonder, etc) and stick them on the swap board.

I agree...I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shade on! One of my absolute faves. I grabbed 2 Backups & the cutest little Kate Spade wristlet on sale that matches the color lol.gif

 

Sorry that HC didn't work out for you.

I agree, all the ls looks lovely on her.

post #2539 of 3266

Thank you, ladies!  I knew I wanted HA (such a pretty color), but I was worried HC would look awful on me (I just crossed my fingers as I checked out girlhaha.gif), and I almost skipped AC because I rarely wear reds.  I'm glad they're all very wearable though.  Thanks to all the enablers here and everyone who posted links and photos!

I don't think I'm a sale/swap person. I lack the motivation and patience. When I'm clearing through my stuff, I just want it gone.

 

Hot Chocolate - Just given to my 18 year-old daughter's friend who's over and 'has never had anything MAC before!" WAY more fun than selling/swaping and I didn't need to mail it anywhere. :)

 

Star Wonder & Flight of Fancy - Given to very thrilled 11 year-old daughter with understanding that she can only wear Star Wonder (which only appears as a subtle glow on her) for very special occasions. Given that it's a dry product and that I'll store it for her appropriately, hopefully it will last until she's a bit older. I've kept powder blush for years without a problem.

 

L'Oreal Infallibles - Gave most to my eldest daughter and just kept the three I like best for myself. I love this formula but almost never wear them while my daughter wears hers daily. The three I kept are great one and done summer shades that I know I'll reach for when temperatures soar. 

 

I need to have really covered any redness in my cheeks to wear Dolce Vita. I'll give it another couple of tries before getting rid of it. I find Plum Foolery a lot easier to wear and I don't reach for this kind of shade often enough to warrant owning both. (I'd rather save the space for yet another coral shade that I'm sure I'll fall in love with this spring/summer).

 

I really don't like wasting products after I've bought them. I know I'll never hit pan on most of my blush and e/s, and I'm fine with that if they're colours I enjoy reaching for. I don't want to keep a colour that I won't do more than force myself to wear very occasionally so I can convince myself it wasn't a complete waste.

I skipped Après Chic at a store after comparing it with Viva Glam Cyndi. I preferred Cyndi over Après Chic. But I have started thinking if I need it. Crazy, right? LOL

 

I only got Haute Altitude so far. I can't wait to wear it! I didn't need to buy Stereo Rose and Porcelain Pink as I got them from the previous release. I think I should wear them more often especially Porcelain Pink. I have to wait for summer to wear Stereo Rose. greengrin.gif

Speaking of Haute Altitude, until last night, I thought the name was Haute Attitude. I had no doubt. What’s wrong with me? th_crazy2.giflmao.gif

 

amuse.gif NO! lol.gif AC is so lovely on.

 

I thought the same thing about the name of HA ...I like Attitude better girlhaha.gif

post #2542 of 3266

I am wearing HC ls today & I love it! Since I have very pigmented lips, I found that just a light application looks beautiful.

Hahaha. I know! Après Chic looks really beautiful on everyone here. (Thank you all for sharing the pictures! bouquet.gif)

Well, I ordered AC last night at Nordstrom. I couldn't resist. The estimated ship date is January 21. Hope they will not cancel my order. sweatdrop.gif

 

I should be on a lipstick no-buy after this collection (well, maybe after Archie's Girls. LOL). Nothing should change my mind. lol.gif

It will be interesting to see if Nordies fulfills those backorders.

Hot Chocolate is on Nordstroms. Back ordered though...
post #2549 of 3266

If Nordstrom has something available to order/back order that always is an indicator that mac.com is going to restock
