MAC Baking Beauties Collection (April 2013) - Page 31

post #901 of 3614
The first one almost looks like a cookie...I feel like they could have done more with the theme though. Maybe they look better brand new, which would mean I would never want to ruin them!

w00t.gifno way!  i like the thought provoking questions about make up.  It makes me use my brain cells and stops me from drooling over new products for a few minutes th_drool.gifpeace2.gif

I kinda like the design, I think i'll wait for swatches ect... though. I do agree, they look a little stiff and I imagine colour payoff is gonna be a b***h but who knows, they might be wonderful! love.gif

I like the design of In For a Treat much better than Pink Buttercream, but colourwise PB will definitely suit me better. Like Gracie I hope IFaT isn't as orange as it looks or I'll be skipping that for sure.

My friend at MAC said that they swatched lighter than the AG PM's did.  They look darker and more pigmented to me so that came as a surprise.  She said that these will most likely only work as a highlighter, not as a blush like the AG or Vera ones did.

I'm kind of glad I skipped Archie but In For A Treat beater me the champagne they described. Pink Buttercream I think I get regardless but it seem the from the photo's both the white and leaf colours (green and lavender) is a overspray.

 

But with ED coming out these will probably the only thing from this collection I'll be getting.

I'm only excited about the Eclair Paint Pot and the Devil's Food Lipstick in this release. Which is good because March could be an expensive Mac month!

Will they work as a blush on a pale person? I'm just wondering. tong.gif

Was she talking about an overspray? amuse.gif

No, she said they probably wouldn't work as blush on everyone, but that's just one opinion.  We'll see, soon I hope!

I'm looking at the BB Pearlmattes as finishing powder. I want them to NOT have much color. I want to use them all over my face, or at least on many parts of it, to add subtle color and a little subtle sheen. So far, they still seem good to me.

Thank you, Spikesmom!

post #914 of 3614

I think I can deal with a light sheen. The only issue is that I'm really pale, so I don't know how exactly they'll highlight on me. :/

Thank you, Genn! Hope to see the collection at Nordstrom soon!   yahoo.gif

I'm meh on the designs of these.  Mac has done better in the past.   At least they've done them  in a way that makes it easy to isolate the colours for different uses.

post #918 of 3614

Sooo disappointed in the design of the Pearlmattes.  I skipped the ones from the Archie line anticipating getting one or both of these but now I'm just meh.  I'll get one or both if they end up being fantastic product, but aesthetically this is a huge letdown. 

post #919 of 3614

I really want to see swatches of the pearlmattes!! The look of the product becomes irrelevant to me if the quality of the product is good, but still, so not what I expected. sigh.gif

I really want to see swatches of the pearlmattes as well. If the green/blue leaves are only oversprays, I'm not going to be a very happy camper.

I'm worried that it won't be great quality. :/ I'm fine if it's not very pigmented, just as long as it's not very shimmery.

post #921 of 3614

Thank you so much, Genn!

 

Hopefully I will get a call soon cheerleader.gif

I am behind and catching up on pics and such. The pearlmattes were what I was most interested in. Seeing actual pics of them now.... Blech. Normally I am not particularly concerned with what makeup looks like in the pan (unless it's super duper pretty, haha), but these two look outright unfortunate to me. oh.gif Maybe they swatch nicer than they look.

 

I think for $'s sake, I am going to avoid them and the two lipsticks I had been interested in, and just get Fancy Frosting paint pot if it is different enough from the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool.

I originally got it with the Cremesheen release and loved it so much I ended up getting a BU of it & it's Cremesheen glass match Ever So Rich. I gave the BU to my mommy who ended up loving LW too. I will be getting another 1 or 2 when it's released with this collection.

Yesssssssssssssss I love Ever So Rich and still wear it!!!!

Isn't that the truth? I am still not feeling the designs. I don't know. Being a bit of an old lady, I perhaps shouldn't say this, but don't they look a bit old ladyish? A bit too girly girly, foo foo and prim & proper. This design doesn't suggest MAC to me. Maybe Estee Lauder. Okay, don't throw rocks at me now. I believe these will be a skip. More budget for Lavender Whip BU's

My problem with them is they are not Girlie Girl enough for me. They are too plain and simple. I can draw those roses in my sleep.

OT but kind of related, lol: if anyone has Perfect Topping MSF for sale or swap please PM me!! smiles.gif
post #930 of 3614

I LOVE the design of the first one but the colours of the periwinckle one are better for me ;_;
