Can anyone tell me how Freckletone compares to Pure Zen? Pure Zen is too light and too peach for me for some reason "/ (NC30-35)

I dont have pure zen but freckletone is darker and leans more of a neutral peach

Its not orange on me maybe because im darker? Who knows lol. But i prefer freckletone over siss

I love it. Its one of my fav nudes

My sister does that to me all the time on Facebook but with spiders. I'm terrified of them and she will mix in a few pictures of her tarantula with cute pictures of my niece.

Ugh...

My order has arrived but my Aztec Brick e/s came without the special edition sleeve. (It's not even a box btw, just a sleeve.) :( Disappointed. At least I did get one with the other e/s.

I kind of want Altered State too but I know I don't need it. I hope I'll be able to keep it off my cart when the time comes lol.gif

Typical. In the meantime I keep changing my mind! Snakey SP or Archie SP? Aaaargh!!! th_crazy.gif

 

It would be amazing if someone saw/swatched both products and gave us some info as to how similar/different they are.

That really is disappointing. For me the packaging is partly what makes special edition products, erm, special particularly when the colours are repromotes. But it does have the snake print right?

Yes it does, but to me that's not actually that interesting. At least the eyeshadow looks nice. Haven't swatched it yet in case Mac ask me to return it in exchnage for one with a sleeve, although I'd prefer it if they could just send me a sleeve.

post #375 of 839
I cannot believe it is still not up. Am I missing something here? I just went shopping WITH my Ipad, just so that I can still stalk the site. Now how sick is that?
Got the regular plumful lipstick because I stopped by a MAC counter. Pretty lipstick. Toned down for me but pretty. Perhaps now that I am getting older I will appreciate those kinds of colours more? It will take some getting used to though. After all, I am a bright lippie girl. Esp reds...and hot / bright pinks...

This is how freckletone looks on me without a lip liner which makes it such an easy nude to wear.

(from my blog)

 

Im thinking about buying it again with the snake print only if its the same price as the regular one because ill use it so much the snake print wont last that long lmao

u kno now that I think about it, I'm not gonna get the eyeshadow. I'm getting too many from UD which I Iike better.
I'm sure T will compare both but I'm not sure she'll post pics of it. I wanted the snake and Archie powders but for now Im just getting the Archie one. if the snake one is around still at the end of the month I will get that one too. if I get it then I will order the lipstick too. otherwise I'm going to pass on everything. the snake print will eventually wear away......
trying to talk myself out of this .......

That's a very good point yes.gif. In my case it's not so much a choice between the snake print and the cute hearts. It's between a pure BP (if that makes any sense) and one with blush. I like to use larger brushes with my BPs and I don't know if I can avoid getting some of the blush colour on the brush if I just want to use the BP. And the hearts look a bit on the small side for a brush to pick up the colour without getting some BP on it as well.

 

I'm not making any sense am I? lol.gif

post #379 of 839

Happy hauling, everyone!

 

I'll probably skip this collection. I'm interested in Cockney l/s, but I know I would never use the one with the beautiful snake print. I know I would not touch it. It's too beautiful. heat.gif I'm glad Cockney is permanent. No need to rush for this lippie. More for you guys. Enjoy! pompom.gif

Somehow I get the feeling this one will not release this weekend...

This blows. What a waste of time... Geez... And I am absolutely positive that the minute I relax, walk away or whatevs it launches and SP will be sold out. 

 

When MM released here PDF checked and it wasn't up. I checked 30 - 40 minutes later: what do you know, it was up and the lipsticks were sold out (or perhaps PZ wasn't at the time). Really gave me the feeling the l/s were sold out when they put it up. Oh brother...

You're right. I got the same impression with CYY and Moxie too. Possibly even MB?

 

Even if SP does sell out before we get the chance to buy it we still have Flatter Me to fall back on smiles.gif

It might not be so bad as you think. This collection launched on Thursday in the UK (and the email came out almost immediately!) and SP is still in stock.

Yes I noticed that. I was flabbergasted because I think that was the first... I hope MAC NL and MAC US will follow and that this will be a new trend as it should be...

MAC UK seems to get the lion's share of the European stock. The BR and MM stuff stuck around for ages too. Even the really coveted items like FM and CYY were available for days on end.

Makes total sense to me.  This is exactly why I'm planning on getting SP from YotS and not FM from AG.
