post #421 of 3266

That's a weird release date. Wonder when we're getting it in the UK. I thought it was January for us.

Did you get Naturally in November last year or was it in January?

 

I'm curious to see if this collection will launch earlier in Europe too...

Maybe you'll get AC in February then again.

 

Although, if I remember correctly, Naturally was released in mid-Jan, while this year, AC is released at the end of December. The release pattern doesn't seem to be consistent or predictable anymore. shrugs.gif

Last year Naturally was released in february in Italy too, but this year Apres Chic will be released in January... I know it's odd because every year in January we used to have two collections (cham pale and stylishly yours, daphne guinness and iris apfel..) ... something is changing to the head quarter? XD

We also had Naturally in February, but no Stylishly Yours or Iris :( . I'm fairly certain that my Mac said that we are getting this collection in January.

I didn't know Gentle was a permanent item! I'll have to swatch it next time I'm at a counter because it was one if the items I was interested in.
post #433 of 3266

I'm in desperate need of some swatches from this collection, Strength or even taste temptations.... tumbleweed.gif

post #434 of 3266

It is amazing that we are getting it first, I was stunned because it released in January last year for Naturally

I'm actually a bit concerned about that. While on the one hand I'd definitely appreciate less collections per month, I hope that won't turn out in getting less collections outside of Northern America. I'm a bit wary now that it seems that we won't get Taste Temptations. I really can't remember a time when we didn't get such a big collection over here. Well, we'll see...

I wouldn't be too concerned. In the past, there were also collections that were Europe exclusive, such as the Cine-matics refills (I believe those were also not available in England).

Its a great blush, too bad it doesn't last on me, my skin eats it.  It is a really pretty, cool toned cotton candy pink.

Not sure if it'd work for you, but I found that using a stippling brush (my favorite of the moment is by Real Techniques) to apply my blush.  I notice my blush has more staying power this way.

-- MSF - Redhead - "Gold to salmon pink degradé with frosty finish" - looks coral on me
-- MSF - Light Year - "Peachy pink with gold shimmer"
-- Mineralize Blush - Solar Ray - "Peach and gold melange"
as well as
-- Pearlmatte Face Powder - Flower Fantasy - "Pale coral with gold pearl/pale pink/soft pale salmon" (different finish, similar color range)
And
-- Benefit CORALista - "bright coral with shimmer"
-- NARS Deep Throat - "peach with shimmer"
-- NARS Orgasm the Multiple - "pinky peach with gold shimmer" (a cream stick)
 
Is Stereo Rose really so different that i should consider it? th_crazy.gif

I'm with you on this. I have 4 of the products you listed, plus Benefit Cha Cha Tint, Nars Orgasm blush, Laura Geller Peach Blossom and a few other coral type blushes, so I'm trying to skip Stereo Rose. 

 

edit: Just remembered I also have the Casual Colors and two of them are coral/peachy. Hopefully Stereo Rose will be a skip for me...but swatches always have a way of swaying one's opinion lol.

Obsessed with that brush!! cheerleader.gifDo you use it with powder blushes, though? I've only used it with creams/liquids.

So far, I've only used it with powder blushes.  It's great for light application of my super pigmented blushes, and great for building color on less pigmented shades.  I even bought a backup of this brush, I love it that much!

post #444 of 3266

My list for right now is completely contingent on swatches. I'm kind of excited about this collection, but MAC has been on serious overload and I'm getting a little burnt out. (I say this now lol, but we'll see once these collex start releasing.) Things in italics are what I'm super iffy on, which is basically everything xD

 

APRÈS CHIC

 

Lipstick

Après Chic - Pinky brick red (Cremesheen)

Haute Altitude - Mid-tone blue pink (Amplified Creme)

Hot Chocolate - Mid-tone plum (Satin)

Cozy Up - Deep caramel (Matte)

 

Mineralize Blush

Amber Glow - Warm peach

Alpine Bronze - Mid-tone caramel

 

Mineralize Skinfinish

Stereo Rose - Coral with golden-bronze shimmering nuances

 

Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

Nice & Simple - Bronzy gold with multi-dimensional pearlized pigments

Rosy Romance - Bluish plum with subtle pink pearlized pigments

 

Pro Longwear Eye Liner (Not all at once, but if I like the formula it'll happen eventually)

Black Ice - Rich black

Rich Experience - True brown

Mountain Air - Vibrant teal

Night Trail - Deep navy blue

Snow Shadow - Purple violet

Second that! I looked at the stippling brushes from E.L.F. and Sonia Kashuk as well as the 130 and nothing compares to the RT stippling brush. I feel like it's way more densely packed and less flimsy-feeling than the others I've looked at. Definitely getting a back-up with ULTA's 20% off ^__^

I am glad we have until then to save up, because this collection is going to be a big haul and I need to save up.  (saving in December is impossible for me)

I can't wait for more swatches, definitely looking forward to the lipsticks and tinted lipbalms. With the weather changing I will need them,

I've managed to stay away from this thread, but curiosity got the best of me...
