post #816 of 3266

Went to a Mac counter yesterday and was able to take a peek at some the eyeshadows and cheek stuff. I'm glad my items are on hold because honestly is doesn't look like they got too much of the MSF's in. The MUA said that Stereo Rose will be the first to sell out quickly in this collection because it's a favorite of so many people. On hold so far is:

 

MES:

Frost at Midnight

Fireside

Winter Pursuit

Ice

 

MSF:

Stereo Rose

 

MB:

Alpine Bronze

 

Lipstick:

Cozy Up

Warm Companion

 

So far my total is $188.00 which is okay...pending swatches I may either add or subtract from the shadows and lipsticks.

I'm like omg I could kiss you lol so I ordered both msf's I felt so lucky as she said they wouldn't presale because of after Xmas shopping, then leaving so happy and lucky I went to vs to buy a gift, I remembered about my secret reward card I asked the guy to check he's like omg you have $50!!! I was once again so excited lol I never win anything haha I left that store thinking geez I should go buy a lottery ticket but I didn't lol I'm not that lucky

Have fun! Looking forward to hear what you think of the collection. I really need to make my AC haul a small one because of the ridiculous European prices so I'm keeping my eyes peeled for any snippet of info that might help me narrow down my list.

 

That said, said snippets of info are likely to have precisely the opposite effect, if prior experience is anything to go by lol.gif

No I actually didn't ask, she said they just got the stuff yesterday I saw them she starting opening wrappers of makeup : / lol I might go back Monday to see if I can swatch things because I loved the blushes just by looking at them
post #824 of 3266

I think that for the first time in over a year I am going to skip mineralize stuff! Nothing is calling to me. Who am I????

MAC needs to stop it with the yearly price increases.  It's pushing me more towards other brands like NARS.  However, I do love me some mineralize blush so I'll be checking out Alpine Bronze.  Only other thing that interests me is Apres Chic lipstick.

The ones from HC were also $23.50, but the Naturally ones were $22. Completely ridiculous. There's no reason why it should shoot up $1.50 in 6 months.

 

In the meantime, I'm scaling down my list to three items. Stereo Rose, Gentle, and Amber Glow.

I guess we'll soon hit the $25 price point for MB's.

post #831 of 3266

I've narrowed down my list to stereo rose, the two new blushes, apres chic / hot chocolate lipstick.. not bad, not bad at all

When that happens, I won't be buying them anymore.

 

GAH, I also just realized MSFs are $29. IDK why I thought they were $28...maybe because the Naturally ones were and then they increased for HC.

'Just want to remind everyone that hand swatches looked majorly different than how the lipsticks looked on my lips - we were all surprised. They did get a lot of stock at my store, at least. I don't think it will be too stressful to get these in-store the first couple of days the collection is out and remember....these lippies are mostly nudes and MLBBs, so it's best to try them in person to make sure you get ones that will look the best. If that's not possible, the colors are pretty fool-proof for a wide range of skin tones so I think people will be pretty satisfied overall if they have to buy without trying first, but better safe than sorry is my opinion, or at least wait for good photos of them on people's lips.

post #835 of 3266

I'm getting more and more excited. pompom.gif I need more swatches, but can't find any. Hopefully more will start to emerge soon. I need to see Warm Companion applied on lips and I'm still completely undecided about the MES.

I can never tell the true color of MES without swatching for the most part because of all the veining. I hope I like these though!

I absolutely gorged on makeup in 2012, but I've really slowed my buying of late; it's hard to find stuff I actually want.

 

I had a very sane 2 blush at the beginning of the year. I then added another couple of dozen (MAC and NARS); the nice thing about having so many is that if I want to add the very odd one to my collection at this point I'm not quite as concerned with price (within reason). I certainly don't need more blush, but I'll probably get Stereo Rose if I get the chance unless I think it's too shiny/metallic. MSF are $34 in Canada, and that's getting pretty close to my max.

Warm Companion was so gorgeous on me!! I loved how it glistened. It's very yellow-toned apricot, though. I'd say if you can wear Sheer Mandarin sheen supreme, WC will be more wearable than that one, but it might still be too yellow for some pale NWs. Matching eye shadows to it may be a little tough, too. Frost at Midnight was the most perfect one to go with it. I think warm greys and any type of turquoise or teal would work too, but black might be a little stark. I don't think browns would be so great either.

I heard that if I want to see a lipsticks color to swatch with my fingertips will show a more accurate way how it will look on our lips, not sure but I thought it was interesting to go by
