I do have to say, that I think this whole thing has gotten way out of hand.  And I do also want to say that I have never had such a bad experience with a posting....ever.  After a few  hours of back and forth comments, I feel like I am back at work with a huge group of women.  It can get very catty. 

 

I truly do love makeup, but I don't feel like getting into it with any of you.  I am sure we all must have better things to do.

 

Good bye.

 

Not been on teh interwebs for long? 

 

I read through the posts re: uppercase posts and I couldn't for the life of me find anything that can be construed as "catty". And I can honestly say Specktra is easily one of the friendliest and most easy going online communities I have ever been involved in. 

 

Come on peeps, group hug! grouphug2.gif

Oh just let her go. There are some people who just want to find confrontation everywhere even if there isn't any.

Though this seems delish, I really hope MAC isn't just going to release frosty paint pots from now on.

Me either I don't care for frosty paint pots. I really wish they'd have an all cream/matte paintpot collection in the near future.

Everyone talking about the pearlmattes they got from their AG hauls is making me even more antsy to see the ones in this collection!  Really eager to try one and see how I like it.  Seems like it'll be next to impossible to get b/us if you don't get them right away though, since everyone appears to be eyeing those babies.

Guys, come on. She's excited about the new collection like we all are! That was a little bit ridiculous to read you guys ranting at her not to type in capitals for this and that reason. Lets just forgive it and move on! Jeesh!

I love typing in CAPS lol....But, it is chatroom etiquette...If, I am really excited I type things in CAPS, but, people do get bent out of shape if you use all CAPS because, they do feel like your screaming or yelling at them....I didn't take offense. The color story is the breakdown description of products and like someone said we know some of the products because, they are repromotes...But, we pick what we want based off the description and since we know MAC products we choose what we want and then narrow it down when pictures are released etc

All CAPS is way easier if you are typing on a phone or small tablet shrugs.gif I think it's best to focus on what people are writing and not how they write it th_hug.gif

I know, right? I like frosty paint pots as much as the next person, but I have to admit I miss creme and matte paint pots. There really aren't that many of them in the permanent line, so it seems like a higher priority to introduce them via collection. Alas, I suppose not. -shrug-

 

Now that I think about it, many companies that are coming out with similar cream eyeshadow pots have mostly frosty color ranges as well. Maybe something about the formula just makes frost easier and/or more appealing than matte finishes?

post #670 of 3625

No it's not. I type on my phone all the time and it's just as quick. My phone always switches to capital letter after the full stop, I can just keep typing. Easy peasy.

I'm guessing that's why MAC is releasing the frostier finishes now. Loreal, Maybelline and other brands have at most 1 or 2 creme/matte finishes in their line.

The last time MAC did a major paint pot release I think I bought all of them, but I bought the matte/creme ones first and the frostier ones later. For the love of all that's holy can they please repromote Nubile!!!!

post #672 of 3625

I don't think anybody was catty or rude. Anyway that wasn't the impression I got from anybody.  I hope she does come back.

That's true but MAC needs to get the memo  to do something different because people will like it and plus no one really has that type of product out so a lot of people will buy. Imagine how good an all matte/cream line/collection would do especially with wearable or bold colors. I know Maybelline just came out with the Metallics so maybe  they will do one this Fall. I enjoy their colour tattoos a lot!

I don't mind frosty, but it's better (IMNSHO) to have a range of finishes.

rant.gif Ranting involves ad hominem attacks (e.g., name calling) and rude, aggressive and/or provocative language.censored.gif I've been on the 'net pretty much since 1982 and i know a rant when i see one. I didn't see any ranting... And, after all, ranting in a no-rant zone is bad netiquette...

But I as well can't wait to see the products for this line as I skipped the pearlmattes for Archie because these sound somewhat better IMO

Exactly what I was thinking, on both counts. Every time I look at the product line-up for this collection, I crave cupcakes and get more convinced that I want to get both PM powders. I thought about the Archies ones, but I'm curious to see how these work. I think that the cool shades (periwinkle and mint green) would work well as colour correctors, so the overall colours would really glow. And I do like Miss Behave blush, which is similar in concept- mint green heart inside peachy blush- which gives my skin a dynamite glow.

That's exactly what i was thinking!!! and exactly why I would want these because of the description and i hope they do just that! pretty.gif

Like everyone, I'm really interested in the PM now.   

post #687 of 3625
Pastels are not flattering on me (heck, Peachstock looks pretty corpse-like on me) so I really just have my eye on the PM's and MTLB. But I have a feeling the Apres Chic ones and these will end up at CCO's since their price point is a bit high for most people to be comfortable spending that much on a lip balm.

pastels look bad on me too but the MAC girls were showing me how to wear VG nicki 2 the other day and it didn't look so bad. i don't know if i'd prefer the lavender one in this collection or the VG nicki 2 but i'm kinda excited to venture out and try one, LOL

PPs don't have an expiration date, however they are more likely to dry up and harden before they're completely used, if not stored and used properly. I still have a sample from Fafi that's as soft and creamy as butter!
