I'd try Macy's. If something is sold out everywhere, I usually find it at Macy's as they don't have the typical MAC customer.

Pretty! I've been using Winter Pursuit a lot lately. I spray the brush with Fix + and it just brings out the color.

I was at the Mac in Chicago on Oak Street on Saturday and they still had Stereo Rose on the display so you might want to check there - they will ship anywhere

I wore Hot Chocolate for the first time today. As much as I want to kid myself otherwise (it's plum, really...) it is undeniably more brown on me than anything else. I'm not 100% sold on it still, but I definitely liked it better by the end of the day. It's just a bit of an adjustment I guess for someone who didn't wear proper lipstick until last year (just gloss or sheer l/s). My husband called it a "mean and nasty" l/s! Admittedly I'd just said something snarky, but he decided that must be the lipstick's fault hmm.gif It's definitely a winter only colour - but as we just got our first snow today I could be wearing it for a while yet! I definitely liked the formula - my first satin - and it had good staying power. It even made me feel a bit fashion forward - which is so not me if you knew me - as most people I see are wearing HA type soft pinks/nudes. That would be more in my comfort zone, but I guess I bought HC to step out of my comfort zone so that's what I am doing, and I still have HA for less brave days.

 

One thing I know for sure after wearing HC though - I am so not interested in Firm Form. This is plenty dark enough for me!

Always good to mix it up and step outside of the comfort zone!

 

It's really easy to tone down the brown with a pale pink gloss on top - the light pink balm from this collection is perfect and you can blot it down to keep the satin-y finish. It's a really nice combo.

Play around with it by mixing it with other lipsticks. Layering it over lip liners help as it can lighten or soften the brown tones. I used it with Boldly Bare and it lightened it up a bit.

I've been fine with it so far and I can get cystic breakouts around that time of the month if I'm not careful. It's much gentler on my skin than MSFN. Keep us posted on how it's working out.

I got dark.  I am battling with adult acne and have all kinds of prescription potions.

I changed my mind.  I do not like the longwear pencils after all.  I bought them because I read that they'd last in the waterline....they totally don't.  I wore Mountain Air for a shoot and by the time I got home, the waterline wasn't just faded, it was GONE.  I'll be returning mine tomorrow.

That is hilariously awesome.  I wonder how your personality would change (at least how he perceives it) if you wore a sultry red?  girlhaha.gif

Really?  That's so weird.  I wore mine in my waterline for an eight hour work day, plus an hour commute to and from work, and it was still there when I got home.  This just goes to show that makeup does not always work the same way on everybody!

Awww, you should try it! Their base coat is AMAZING.I do two coats base (advice courtesy to http://www.swatchandlearn.com/). OPI nail polish lasted a week and 2  days! (And I could never make it past one day...seriously. I'm a tough girl! haha)

post #2899 of 3266

Whoooo! I really want it! I have no-buyers regret!! 

 

Is it still available?

Just turned 26 on the 6th of this month and have battled acne since I was 13! I dealt with it then but it has made a return and I'm on all kinds of acne potions as well. Mine is and has always been around my chin area which sucks cause its so close to the mouth. Do you use the clarisonic? It works to clean the skin really well'

I have MAC's Cork, 80%, Chestnut, Bittersweet & Mahogany in the brown family.  As for mauve/plum, like you I have Plum, Burgundy & Dervish.  There was a post containing several recommendations for more reasonably priced NYX liners that you might want to explore.

post #2904 of 3266

Will look around! Just getting used to the site. Thank you. =]

That's strange. Do collections always arrive at your neck of the woods later than the rest of Europe or is this a one off?

 

Which items do you have your eye on? I got SR, PP, SB, FaM, HC and HA, MA and NT. Still contemplating AG and super miffed at not having got AC while it was still around.

We usually get the stuff right at the beginning of the month provided the stock has arrived by then. Now it seems just being "on its way" (read: lost!). I don't need much because I was distrustful enough to order my haul part 1 from abroad (and apparently will continue in doing so) but I just want the rest of my stuff! (Hope this rant helps...)

No, the opposite. As I mentioned, I have most of the stuff already, but I still need the MES, more balms and maybe some liners and a lippie.
