Oh right! I forgot about those!  I will definitely be trying at least the brown and the black.

I love my powerpoint e/l, so I probably won't need the black or brown.  I've definitely got my eye on the teal and the purple, and the navy one is a maybe.  It'll depend on how close it is to Prussian. 

 

Aside from waterline safe, I also hope they have good staying power on the waterline. They're PLW, so one would assume so, right?  I know a lot of people use eye kohl on their waterline, but I never had success with that.  It's gone in minutes.  Powerpoint pencils are the best pencil for my waterline, and I'm hoping these can be added to that list!

I am really l excited too.  I've gotten more into neutral looks with colorful liner lately so this will be awesome for me!!

Those are my favorites too and the reason why I always look forward to the big summer collection. I expect the staying power of the PLW e/l to be similar to the PP e/l.

Awww, you don't like the kiwi flavor?  I like both, so I am good either way.  SO glad the black in the quad ISN'T carbon AGAIN.  Please don't hype Stereo Rose, I can't stand to buy it and swap it a third time because I can't stand the fish scale look.

Me too....Powerpoints and Pearlglides are my favorite e/l pencils heart.gif

I wish I had gotten a BU of Handforged, I use it almost everyday so I'm quickly running out.

post #406 of 3266

I cannot rule out any of the MES.  They all sound gorgeous whistle.gif

I had Handforged before, so I knew for sure that I need quite a few BU's. :-)

post #408 of 3266

I don't know if anyone has asked this but would Apres Chic l/s look anything like Red Drawf from Daphene Guiness?  I always liked the color, but the PLW formula didn't agree with me

post #409 of 3266

Okay, I am trying to come up with a preliminary list but no swatches yet is making it hard to cross stuff off the list, so I am sure this will be narrowed down some (I hope so at least): 

Lipstick

Après ChicPinky brick red (Cremesheen)  I would love it if this looked like Red Dwarf, but with this type of description honestly it could be anything from dark maroon to hot pink...
Hot ChocolateMid-tone plum (Satin)  This will probably be a nice MLBB shade like OffShoot
Cozy UpDeep caramel (Matte)  It this isn't too yellow/blorange, its on

Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm (I want all of these, but I guess I will get one or two to test first, if these are moisturizing as tender tones, I could stock up on all of them, even the boring ones)

Pure & TenderPlumy creamy nude-- sounds ubiquitously pretty but imminently dupeable, skip if it settles into lip lines though...
Slightly Nude – Nudey coral with subtle pink pearlized pigments--probably a skip unless I love the tester I get and get them all, I have tons of peachy lip stuff and don't need more.
Nice & Simple – Bronzy gold with multi-dimensional pearlized pigments-- this sounds the most unique, I will probably get it
Rosy Romance – Bluish plum with subtle pink pearlized pigments sounds like a good MBLL color, I may get this and the above one to test them...
Stay Warm! – Creamy light pink--sounds the least interesting and most dupeable.  Skip unless they are so awesome I get them all.

Mineralize Eye Shadow

Ice – Light peach base with white veining  this is a maybe, sounds like a good browlighter though
Silver Birch – Grey base with peach veining  the most interesting one by description
Fireside – Deep plum with grey veining is probably what I wanted Winterized to be and a team purple must-have
Frost at Midnight – Deep blue-grey base with purple veining this ones sounds like a dupe of Winterized and likely a skip unless swatches are convincing otherwise
Winter Pursuit – Copper base with grey veining sounds taupe-alicious!

Pro Longwear Eye Liner (all of these sound interesting, wonder how long wearing they are)

Black Ice – Rich black * I would get this one because I love the name, and who can't use black
Rich Experience – True brown * I love brown, so its a win
Mountain Air – Vibrant teal * Probably a skip as Undercurrent has my teal needs covered
Night Trail – Deep navy blue * Sounds cool, but I use Fly By Blu for navy as I love the pearl in it, so this is probably a skip
Snow Shadow – Purple violet * Its probably dupeable, but its purple, so if this formula is great, it will be assimilated too

Mineralize Skinfinish (these are both a skip, as I have tried both, have PP and don't need a BU, SR looks hideous on me)

Mineralize Blush

Gentle – Raspberry with gold pearlized pigments ° Will be hard to skip, wonder how close it will be to the magenta MES from Heavenly Critters? 
Alpine Bronze – Mid-tone caramel  Is actually the item from the collection I am most interested to see the swatches.  I am hoping it is a more shimmery version of Worldly Wealth and can be used as bronzer or a blush.  Hope it isn't too orange, then the love is gone.

From what my MA told me, it's not shimmery - it's along the lines of the MBs from Semi-Precious.

The mua I talked with told me the pro longwear eye pencil are beautiful and will be permanent ;)

post #415 of 3266

This is the one of the million collections coming out that I am super excited about! I am a sucker for mineralize stuff and I like the sound of the colors. I will be have my BF buy me lots of stuff from this for Christmas heart2.gif

Here's my list so far:

 

 

Lipstick

Hot Chocolate – Mid-tone plum (Satin) (if it's a PLUM, and not like Violetta)

Cozy Up – Deep caramel (Matte) (yes!! I caramel + matte= yes!)

Warm Companion – Beige with gold pearlized pigments (Frost) (possibly, it sounds cool)

Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm (based on the descriptions, I'm in trouble, we will see with swatches)

Pure & Tender – Plumy creamy nude (yes. Plumy nude!)

Slightly Nude – Nudey coral with subtle pink pearlized pigments (nudey coral!!!! sounds awesome)

Nice & Simple – Bronzy gold with multi-dimensional pearlized pigments (probably, I love bronze/gold stuff)

Rosy Romance – Bluish plum with subtle pink pearlized pigments (maybe)
Mineralize Eye Shadow

Silver Birch – Grey base with peach veining (this is only a maybe, I'll have to see how cool it is)

Fireside – Deep plum with grey veining (yes)

Winter Pursuit – Copper base with grey veining (absolutely! any copper eyeshadow is a yes, I have green eyes)

Pro Longwear Eye Liner

Snow Shadow – Purple violet * ( just this one, I've purchased about a million liners lately. I like MAC eye kohl's and I've been buying them up like crazy)

Mineralize Blush

Amber Glow – Warm peach (yes)

Gentle – Raspberry with gold pearlized pigments ° (yes #2)

Alpine Bronze – Mid-tone caramel (yes #3) i am a big sucker for MBs. I use them a lot though, so it's justifiable.


Whew! The brushes and polishes are an easy skip. The MSFs I have already and do not need back-ups, so that's easy too. Good size list though!

post #418 of 3266

This is fantastic for us folks in the US in terms of swatches. I look forward to seeing swatches from down under before it hits North America at the end of December.
