MAC Baking Beauties Collection (April 2013) - Page 24

post #691 of 3625
I've turned into a lipstick mad woman but don't know if I will be purchasing any of these even though I really want to try lavender whip. I've found that I really enjoy matte, amplified and satin lipsticks because they look best on my small lips. Creamsheen or anything glossier makes my looks appear smaller. The only creamsheen that looks nice on me is Apres Chic!

This will be a hard one..
post #692 of 3625

In my imagination, the colors in the lipsticks are going to be swirled like frozen yogurt... lol.gif

Yeah I don't think I'll be picking any lipsticks except for (a big maybe) lavender whip. Swatches would help.

Pearlmattes too I'm not sure about. Have both YOTS-SP and Flatter Me and those would be around for a looong time since I use them sparingly.

How do you store and use them? My bare study is still usable, but it's hardened

I would love a swirled lipstick(s) like this. Now, I'm craving frozen yogurt.eyelove.gif

I have seen swirled lip gloss but not l/s. That would be pretty.  It makes me think of vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet.

 

I almost forgot...I did a live chat with Nordstrom and they said the sugar and spice scents should be online the 25th yahoo.gif

thank you for answering!!! good to know. I have always been into makeup but i never had enough to be concerned about as far as things expiring. Now with all these MAC collections i'm buying way more than i could use in a short time LOL I know a lot of stuff lasts very very long it's just the PP and lipsticks that i was worrying about. 2 of my lipsticks have some sort of disgusting white coating over them already. MAC syrup and venus. both are less than 6 months old and kept with all the other lipsticks. They are probably the most used too but these are the only 2 that have it. I wiped them with alcohol but i'm concerned about buying too many now.

...only a year ago i had only 3 lipsticks icon_eek.gif now i have about 50 girlhaha.gif

post #699 of 3625

oh no! i'd have to buy them all if they looked like that LOL

Yes! You just put into words what I haven't been able to for YEARS. I detest any sort of glossy type finish as my lips look smaller. They also lose definition, with or without liner, and I like my lips well defined.

When using the PPs, always keep them covered. After opening and getting product out, flip the jar upside down on a tissue. This will keep it from being exposed to air while you're applying it. Then flip it back over to get more product out for the other eye. Ten put the lid on it right away. Make sure the lid is on tight! Same goes for the fluidlines!

thank you. good to know!

 

any tips you can give on lipsticks? i'm concerned i'm buying too many since 2 of my MAC lustres have this weird white coating. they aren't that old and are stored and used the same as all the others. i'm wondering how i can prevent this as I would like to get a BU of a lipstick one day but if it's going to go bad it's not worth it for me. i know they don't last forever but at least for a year or 2.

 

i have a few high end lipsticks for over 6 years which smell and look just as they did when i bought them it's just the 2 MAC ones. they are all in my vanity, in my bedroom, kept at normal temperature etc

I never go without lip liner. Nice to know someone else feels the same way I do! smiles.gif

This was actually being discussed in another thread (don't ask me which one...there have been too many to keep up with lately, lol).  Someone started calling it "snow" on the lipsticks.  Erine (or maybe Mac-Guy?  I know they both gave some input on it) gave a thorough explanation for why this happens sometimes, which I don't remember well enough to repeat here.  I'll try to find the exact post and link you to it.  But the important thing to know is that it's not anything that will harm you.  It tends to happen with the lustre finish lipsticks, which both of the ones you mentioned are.

 

ETA: Yes, both of them mentioned it, but Mac-Guy gave the detailed explanation I was thinking of here:  Post #3601   http://www.specktra.net/t/181169/mac-strength-collection-discussion-december-2012/3600#post_2320250

Hehe yup that was me that called it that girlhaha.gif

The snow just occurs on the lustres. It doesn't mean it's gone bad, but you can't prevent it. Just wipe off the snow and apply as usual.

April is just going to annihilate my wallet, what with:

-- In Extra Dimension

-- Baking Beauties
-- Nudes & Metallics
-- Fashion Sets 2013
 
I'm nearly beside myself with anticipation over the Pearlmattes in this collection (sounds of Pokemon theme - Gotta Catch 'Em All). I want at least 8 things from this collection - and probably more once i see swatches - and i usually try to exert self-control and keep myself down to 2 or 3 (well, ok, i was a bad bad girl with Heavenly Creature)
 
I sure hope there's nothing very interesting in March - the new Mineralize lipsticks are perm, so i can try to hold back. That way i can save up for the MAC makeup orgy that will be April.

I want about 13 items in all of those collections and maybe PRO Lip Palette in March, but the Mineralize lipsticks can wait. smiles.gif

Thank you so much for the info, Genn! th_DANCE.gif

I just saw this on MakeupAlley, from 'Simplymac'

I hope it is okay for me to post it, I just got so excited when I saw it!

She wrote it was In for a Treat, for IMO it looks more like the other one? the leaves look periwinkle rather than mint.

Either way, I do really like the design!

post #712 of 3625
Thanks for posting the pic, Kathy. I'll reserve judgment until I see more pics, but that isn't as cute as I expected/pictured in my head. It looks a bit old ladyish to me, although i guess it's supposed to be a cupcake. I really don't need any more highlighters, so unless I get more drawn to these I'll be skipping this collection.

Edit: I came back and took another look at the pic this morning. It's a definite skip for me - this doesn't come anywhere near my 2013 'must love' criteria. I'm in the clear this spring then - I'm only interested in Zestful and the 235 before the big summer collection. Have fun hauling! smiles.gif

Thanks so much for posting, Kathy!! Not what I expected, I'm not really feeling the design, to be honest. Grandma's table cloth is what comes to mind. icon_eek.gif I somehow expected something more modern. Won't stop me from buying it, of course. greengrin.gif

Not what I expected either. And not in a good way!

I am right there with you with the lipstick madness :D

I need that PM! So pretty!

post #717 of 3625

Hey, she has a pic of the mineralize lipsticks and a EDSF too!

post #718 of 3625
Hopefully this pic will allow those who are still undecided about getting the AG PM in favor of these from BB make an informed decision before its too late

Gorgeous! It looks just like the top of a decorated cupcake! I have a feeling these are going to sell out fast.
