Can you go to your local store? Most stores, if not all, have the collection in the back room. Have fun swatching.

Pretty sure this has been mentioned upthread, but I can't seem to find the page. When is this collection going to be available on the website and in-store? TIA flower.gif

I have all five lipsticks on hold. So I've budgeted about $100. For each lipstick I pass on  I add a liner.  th_DANCE.gif

I dunno about that, but it's worth a try! my fingertips certainly are the reddest part of my hands.

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.


Liba did you say yellow toned apricot? ooooh im loving it already! I didnt even get to see the color when i placed it on. Honestly I went by your opinion on them and based my hold items on that. Thanks girl!!!

 I don't see it... Am I missing something?

post #850 of 3266

All I need to see is accurate lipstick swatches.  Is that so much to ask?  :(

post #851 of 3266

Me too. The swatches that were posted just look all wrong from the collection pics. I'll be ordering online so I really, really want to make sure I know exactly what I want. I don't want to go through the hassle of shipping things back if I don't have to

That's what I'm worried about, since I'm very pale and cooltoned. It sounds beatiful, but might not be for me.

 


 

 

My thoughts are with everyone who is affected by the tragic events in Connecticut.

A little bronzer or some of the new browner blushes could help. It's tough waiting for more pictures.......

Indeed that's Porcelain Pink. I love the color on the pan, but doesn't translate the same on my face. I really have to dig in there to get it the same as the pan.

post #858 of 3266

^^ i have porcelain pink and i find it drying. like it doesnt go on like pearl or lightscapade. so i dont use it at all. i feel like they should repromote other msf's. not recent ones.

At which point I guess some of us switch to NARS...

I am wondering if the MES is Silver Birch

post #860 of 3266
I think it is the copper grey based one, Winter Pursuit

Well, whatever it is, it;s on the list!  mac_wishlist.gif

post #862 of 3266

I couldn't swatch the 4 i placed on hold yesterday but they look good. After reading Liba's description of these they do seem really promising. The one that especially stood out to me just by looks alone was Frost At Midnight. I hope we get to see some swatches of these before the release date.

 

Not to go off topic here but has anyone been to the stores the day after Christmas? Are they as packed as Black Friday? Macy's, where i'm picking them up at, opens up at 7am on the 26th. 12 days and counting!

post #863 of 3266
I want it too! Tons of copper gonna be in mine. Will be vein hunting

Navy really is pretty neutral. Should be fine for your look.

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

 

Did you TEST the eye shadows? Because to me, they didn't look impressive in the pot, kinda enh. But once i swatched them i wanted them all - and i did not pre-order a single one - trying to keep my purchases under control.

 

On the other hand the mineralize balms all looked wonderful in their tubes and less impressive when i swatched them, so i only got the golden one. Need moisturizing on the lips in winter...

 

And, what can i say, of course, the MSFs looked beautiful, they ARE beautiful - and i'm not getting either one. I just think they're too close to some i already have... although Porcelain Pink keeps calling to me. I should have gotten BUs of Redhead and Blond - i'm really afraid i'll use them up.

No I didn't swatch any, mineralized eye shadows never are too impressive to me idk if the mixing that doesn't look pretty to me or idk but I just wasn't interested in any; the blushes I couldn't stop staring at, I was kind of embarrassed to ask to swatch anything as she was just showing me, I went to the Mac counter at my local Macy's, reminding me of my redhead I seem to misplaced that one : /

These new ones are really great - better than ever - but if you can resist them, good for you, because woah, this collection is going to be soooo expensive for me SOS.gif

I need to live near you.  You're able to get your hands on everything.
