MAC Baking Beauties Collection (April 2013) - Page 26

post #751 of 3625

I agree with you. I would have preferred a more modern design, but hey, it fits the theme and I still can picture it in my stash. Awaiting swatches to determine if I need both. Probably yes...

post #752 of 3625

Well, i just took a peek at the promo pic, and the design in the compact matches the design on the cake in the photo...

post #753 of 3625

ummm, no.

 

I love pearlmattes but I still have plenty of my two from vera. I can wait for something I like better.

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!

Oh, that's right, I didn't even notice. The decor on the left cake is much prettier IMO, I would've preferred that design.

 

Nevertheless, I'm still very excited for this collection. Can't wait to see more product pics, and swatches of course.

now I'm kind of wishing they made one with a Whip cream and a Cherry on top. I can feel sugar cravings coming on.

I agree. Maybe they'll do the other PM with that design? 

 

Hoping swatches and more product pics surface soon! I feel like there's so much I want so far. I'm really loving the model's lip in the promo pic.

The snow is exclusive to the lustre formula. As mac red is not a lustre, it won't have snow. And alcohol has no effect on the lipsticks, except for immediately killing germs on the surface. Dipping in alcohol won't prevent new germs from growing, nor will it extend the life.

Well some are LE packaging- you can't B2M those, can you?

Yes, you can.

Maybe that will be the design for the coral flowers/mint leaves PM. I hope so! Much cuter! I would definitely buy that one :)

This is what I was thinking, as well. The colors on the other design look like they could be a little coral/minty in different lighting.

Agreed! It seems likely that the other PM will look like the other cake.. I really hope so too!

 

I was originally picturing something like the new Lise Watier compact.. which I love the design of - it's more intricate.

 

 

Moral of the story? I'm so glad I didn't skip Veronica's Blush for this!!

Yes, that's more like the image I had in my head too... Only then with periwinkle...

What I like about this Pearlmatte is THERE IS A TON OF PERIWINKLE IN THERE!!! clapping.gif

 

I thought there would be teeny tiny little leaves with the blue - not enough to really change the color at all, and here we have THIS BLUENESS!!

 

This is totally a good thing - I'm much more excited for this powder now than I was before, plus I'm happy that it's very different from Veronica's Blush.

This is very pretty. I had never heard of Lise Watier before. Now I am intrigued. I also had thought Baking Beauties bp would look similar, but I'm happy with what I saw.

I was thinking about only getting one PM from each collection but then I threw my list out the window and bought VB on an impulse buy.. So glad I did! Depending on swatches I may get both of these as well.. I've used my Archie's ones every day since I got them.. the formula is perfect for my pasty "jellyfish" - as you Spektrettes refer to it - skin! I am curious to see how well the periwinkle/mint works for color correcting with these - love that the leaves are huge also!
post #769 of 3625

I'm thinking about getting one of each lipstick. I really want lavender whip. I have viva glam nick 2 and I love it so much.

post #770 of 3625

This collection sound yum!

I'm loving the lippies, I would get them all but I'm not feeling the frosty plum one..

the rest of them sounds like my cup of tea.. I might be even backing them up..))

post #771 of 3625

I visited my local MAC counter today and my favorite MUA told me about this collection. She said it's very reminiscent of the Quite Cute collection....girly with pastel-like shades. Lavender whip is coming back out in this one as well (not sure if this will be the lipstick or glass and i didn't ask since i'm not too crazy about it anyways). The release date for this @ Macy's MAC counters (and i'm assuming all other department store counters) will be April 18.

why are you excited for the periwinkle? 

those of you who know a lot about color correctrs, can you tell us what each one will do? 

post #773 of 3625
I hope these are bright pastel Lippies so I can mostly skip and save for *hopefully* an awesome summer collection

You can see all the information, including launch date, products, and colour descriptions on the very first post winks.gif

From what I understand, blue is supposed to brighten up fair skin tones and add more radiance.

I think that might very well be the case since the design on the cake actually has coral flowers and minty leaves!

^^^^^This!

 

Also with the rose color and that soft taupe-y pinkish background color, plus the white border, I think when swirled together it's going to make a color that will be like a much more complex Superb or Semi-Precious Crystal Pink - my fine art background is telling me it's going to have a rich glowing quality that will be awesome for skin with a bit of a sallow or olive cast - like the types of skin tones that can't always pull off baby pink blush, plus I suspect it will be quite good for de-emphasizing freckles.

post #778 of 3625

Ooh, I think that we're onto something with the design of the 2nd pearlmatte! That mint and coral cake looks really pretty, I can't wait to see what the PM looks like!

If that is the case, its prbably going to be the first to sell out

Yes I agree. I can't wait for swatches.
