Darn, was really hoping for the balms to be moisturizing, one of my main reasons to buy them .. My list went from all lip balms to maybe 1 or 2 ohboy.gif

It´s too bad they are not moisturizing enough.

Especially when the price is so high.

I'm most excited about the liners. eyelove.gif

I would say that, except these MES sound banging.  They get priority, but barely.  And perhaps b/c the liners are perm???  It is the LE crazy thing.

iagree.gif  Mountain Air has been at the top of my list since day one.  I'm going to try to limit myself to two liners to start, since 1) I want to see how it does on my waterline before investing in too many of them, and 2) they'll be perm anyway...but we all know how things usually turn out when we try to limit ourselves with MAC goodies.

Exactly! Such a shame cause i'm running low on my Hush, Hush Tendertone (only bought one sadly), and was hoping these lip balms would have been a good substitute for it. Will probably buy "Rosy Romance" tho just to try them out, really like the color of that one.

It seems that MAC has yet to get the moisturizing stuff in a tube.  If you want moisture, you have to use a lipbrush or dig it out and get it under the nails (ewww!)

I always use a spatula with pots, so i only use my tendertone when i'm at home. MAC should make Tendertones in a tube lol.

post #789 of 3266

Me too....fortunatly I still have several BUs of my beloved Tendertones but I can never have too many lip balms!

 

I love the fact that these come in a tube and I will try them for sure.

I have no tendertones (sad, I know), but I have their lip conditioner that comes in the pot, and I always use a lip brush with it!  I like it better than the one in the tube for some reason.  If they ever come out with a better formula in a tube (I guess the balms in this collection aren't going to cut it, unfortunately), I would snatch up a few for sure!

The lipsticks should still be $15, MES and balms are $20, MSFs $28, and MBs $23.50. (If not that, then increase the price by 50 cents.)


Thanks so much Ladyarwen! That means i can keep most of what i'd like to get.

I read the google translation and it translated her as saying she wasn't sure how moisturizing they were. I unfortunately didn't get a chance to wear any of them long enough to really know either, but I didn't think they were less moisturizing than the Tender Tones. I did try on every single lipstick in TT, Apres Chic and Strength that day, most of them more than once, using the balms in between and my lips were just fine after all that abuse. The one thing that really stood out to me was the fact you could blot these balms down and they wouldn't crumble or get weird, they'd just blot down to a moist, natural lip finish without glossiness. To me that implies a strong level of moisturizing content in them. It won't hurt to try one in a color you like first, but I'm betting that when more reports come in, we will find out that these balms are just as hydrating as most tinted balms are, if not a little more.

The liners (except the purple one) work great in the water line. I had an extremely sweaty hour at the gym with the navy on and it stayed just fine, without any smearing. It didn't sting or irritate my eyes either. The only drawback is not all of them are equally creamy; the navy was a little tough to line the upper lid with, but it's probably the stiffest one of the good ones - avoid the purple one.

Thanks to your wonderful and thorough reviews, I was already planning on steering clear of the purple one!  I definitely want the teal, and if I only get one more to start, it will be either the navy or the brown.  I definitely believe you that they work great in the waterline, and I have high hopes for them, but after people suggested I get the kohls for my waterline and that turned into a disaster (just call me Lady Raccoon), I feel like I have to try the formula for myself before investing in all of the PLWs (minus the purple, of course).  The only reason I'm starting with two instead of one is because of your review!  I'm also debating if I should use up my black and brown liners that I already have for my waterline before purchasing the PLWs.  I guess that makes the most sense...but I love getting new things!

The navy looks amazing in the waterline - it's very dark, but gives a softer effect than just plain black. This way it won't compete with all the blacks and browns you already are trying to use up!

I wonder how it compares to Prussian powerpoint liner?  Regardless, it sounds lovely, so I think I'll get it along with my teal liner!  Thanks for your thoughts  bouquet.gif

Thanks Liba, you've given me hope again, lolbouquet.gif I always suffer from very dry lips, but if the balms are as moisturizing as the Tendertones, i'm good :) Will definitely still be giving them a try.

"Jag tycker inte riktigt att det ger mina läppar så himla mycket fukt" means "I don´t think it gives my lips

so much moisture".

It´s difficult to get the translation 100% accurate by using Google Translation.

It´s almost impossible to read between the lines etc.

Swedish is my native language, so I don´t need to use Google.

No offense (to anyone), i just couldn´t help my self... ^^

That is the one I am most interested in right now, especially since you mentioned it has some play of colors under different lighting.

I love Prussian and Fly By Blu so I think this will be a water resistant version close to those--I am stoked!

post #801 of 3266
Why no swatches (or very little) :-(
post #802 of 3266

Currently my list:

 

Hot Chocolate lipstick

Stereo Rose MSF

Porcelain Pink MSF.

 

Curious about liners but will probably skip as I always stick to black or none anyway.  I never seem to know how to incorporate coloured liners.

I'm not familiar with this color!  Is it a powerpoint from an old collection?

post #804 of 3266

Gosh, this is my chance! I must get my hands on Stereo Rose MSF and a Porcelain Pink MSF!! 

post #805 of 3266

I am so excited for this collection! I haven't ever commented before so hi everyone! Anyway I really hope I can pick up the blushes, msfs, and the black eyeliner. I kinda want the navy one too but I only wear natural/neutral eye looks so I'm not sure if that would look weird?

specktra_welcome.gif   I've worn neutral colors on my eyes with a dark blue liner before, and it looks quite lovely!  Won't look weird at all.  Welcome to the forums!
