Same with Motif and Saddle I believe.
discontinued in 2013:
Colors in Lipsticks: Naked Paris, Sheer Plum, Spice is Nice, Chic, Coconutty, Shag, Gleam, Chai, Shock-o-late, and Mad Cap:
I have tried most of those except Mad Cap, Shag and Chic. Anybody love those or think they are unique?
Naked Paris is a fave and one of my rare BU as I don't often BU lippies, but I loved it and got BU when it came out with Euristocrats since I thought it was LE, although seeing it on this list makes me think of getting a 3rd BU--yes I love it that much.
Spice is Nice was too orangey for me,
Sheer Plum, seems dupeable tell me if I am wrong,
Coconutty I swapped but would consider getting again, then I am not off to get it now b/c it is on the goodbyes, but if I see one at my CCO, I will snag it.
Chai was nice, but probably dupeable.
Shock-o-late I liked and found unique, but it was a bit too dark for me to use much and now the smell and taste are like burnt playdough...so it is in the B2M pile.
Colors in Eyeshadows: Goldenrod, Samoa Silk, Sunny Spot, Winkle, Bitter, Purple Haze, Digit, Kid, Brown Down
Goldenrod, I don't have but I think something similar in my stash, any love for this? or tears it is going away?
Samoa Silk I bought b/c it gets such love as soon as it hit the goodbyes.
Sunny Spot ?Isn't that a Pro color? How unique is it and do I need it?
Winkle, I don't think I need. I think I have an NYX dupe.
Bitter, I have similar colors and isn't this in one of the quads?
Purple Haze any love for this? I don't know about the finish and the color payoff--thought I read it was crappy?
Digit, Kid, Brown Down I have and use, wondering if I should BU Kid and BD.
Mac4Megan!! All enablers are welcome here Thanks for the heads up. Did you pick up anything?
I saw almost all of the MC collection at various CCO's, but that is a long time ago. I got another BU of Athma, Sur and Gana. I recently still saw the double-ended concealer. It might have been at the CCO in San Marcos (TX), Cabazone (CA) or Wrentham (MA) - I can't remember, but a lot of MC stuff landed in CCO's. The more popular products just got picked up very soon as they usually sell out in a day or two.
I was checking out the "goodbyes" section on the website hoping to snag an extra Kid. (I don't use that much and it's pretty dupeable but I kind of consider it a staple) and I came across the Sheer Mystery powder. I know this is repromoted quite a bit but I've never tried it. It's pretty expensive (especially after a much bigger than expected Archie's haul) but I understand it comes with an extra pan. Can anyone tell me more about this product? Is it something worth having in my kit? Or is it more just something to have in my evening bag to look lovely on special occasions?
How does this differ from other powders for setting makeup? What are the advantages of this powder versus other MAC powders? (I currently use MAC Blot and/or Mineralize Skinfinish Natural for my normal powder)
Also, I know this comes with a refill but can you order the refills on their own? Do the refills stay the same from year to year? For examples, will a refill from next year fit in this years compact?
Honestly, I just think the compact is so pretty and I need someone to enable me! Lol!
I bought a BU of Kid and two Samoa Silks. I would have bought more but that's all they had... I don't think I'll ever run out though because the Veluxe finish eyeshadows last forever! I'm so sad they discontinued them. I was under the impression that Kid was a pretty popular eyeshadow. Oh well, MAC does crazy things sometimes...
I think they are completely different... It also depends on your skintone. I use Kid as a transition color and I use Cork for a crease color... so if you use Cork to transition, you probably don't need Kid because it will be too light for you. Here are some swatches I have from one of my posts.
From Left to Right: Soft Brown, Era, Omega, Kid, Malt, Wedge, Cork
I hope that was helpful!
