I have been able to see the sheets with the product swatches on them in the past, but that doesn't always help; products look different on a white sheet of paper than on my skin. The Bay counter near my house doesn't even bring the products out until launch morning; I've asked them a couple of times but I've always been told that it's not permitted.

 

I suppose I could drive to a different mall further away from my house with a standalone MAC store and ask to see if I get a different answer, but I haven't done that. I tend to shop where it's convenient - near work or home. There is a Pro store that's about a 15 minute walk from my office, but I don't often break for lunch. I will on April 18th though!

oh I'm sorry - I thought you meant they didn't let you swatch after the collection was already on display. My bad! blush-anim-cl.gif I thought it was maybe some hardcore health regulation thing, or something. :D

 

The store I go to always had a private makeup room, so that's where they'd show me things in advance. Maybe your store manager never allowed it because there's no private little area to bring them out in a controlled way? Either that or that manager is a hard @$$. :(

They can put the darker color on the wave, as chances are people will use a little less of it or use it in a more controlled application that the lighter shade.

Normally I can't wear lime green eye shadow at all, but my Spidey Sense is telling me with the EDES formula, this one will be sheer and light reflective enough to actually work on me, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Congratulations. Do you mind telling us what you do or maybe giving us the link? I would love to see Specktrettes' creativity in action!
I like the wave too I don't want to mess it up lol.

the lime green shadow is pulling me in......... noooooo!!! lol

and the opal one too!!!

dammit lol I can't afford all this! why does mac always put the best collections out at the same time?!?

Between keeping up with the new collections, plotting and strategizing, working extra shifts to pay for them technically I WORK 4 MAC

I'm loving the sound of everything, especially the term "opalescent."  I can't wait for this collection.  Good thing I have time to save $$$$.

I love Superb! It's been my go-to highlighter ever since it came out. My NARS Albatross has been collecting dust.

 

I'm so mad at myself for not getting a BU.th_loser.gif

post #195 of 3636
So excited!
post #196 of 3636

I'm totes checking out:

 

Double Definition MSF - Soft shimmery gold / Patina bronze
Shape The Future MSF - Pastel pink with iridescence / Soft brick with shimmer (if only to check out the "brick" shade)

Zestful MESF - Pale iridescent lime
Extra Silver MESF - True silver

Triple Impact MESF - Opalescent lavender with violet pearlized pigment

Blazing Heat MBF - Mid-tone peach

 

I'm afraid I'm going to have to skip the rest. I doubt I'll get more than 2 or 3 of the products I'm looking out for. I'm saving most of my purchases for Archie's Girls, Baking Beauties, (maybe) the All About Orange, and Temperature Rising. Basically, if it's not amazing, I probably won't shell out a ton of cash.

post #197 of 3636

I'm looking at opalesce now.  the only thing that sucks about these threads are no actual pics of products.  Then we sit and sepculate for weeks.   I wanna know NOW! LOL

post #199 of 3636
Why Mac why.. All the best collections on April :0 when im still in school and with no money. Ugh, gonna have to keep Archies at 2 items and be very picky for the Nudes and Metallics collection.. Lets just hope the other summer ones arent THAT special ssad.gif
post #200 of 3636

In a perfect world where I have tons of money to throw around, I think I'd haul from this April collection the most. I only got two eyeshadows from 2012's collection, and I'd like to get a couple more, including some blushes. We'll just have to see. *sigh*

WOO HOO! Happy Bday to me smiles.gif

Love ED products! Especially excited for the new Skinfinishes & Blushes. Not too excited about the description of the ESs, but swatches may cure that.

Plus, does anyone know if the EDESs will be the size of the original release last year or the size of the ones released in Glamourdaze.

I remember someone mentioning they'd be the original size, though I don't recall if it was from whether they knew for sure or if it was speculation. I sure hope it's the original size, I refuse to pay $20 for a regular sized shadow.

post #203 of 3636

Thanks so much for all this new info! I am going to have to do the happy dance now since the EDES are big!

Opalesse sounds beautiful - I knew it was going to be my favourite from the description but you've confirmed it flower.gif

maybe I can save on the blushes if they only give a creme blush look. I have every single color of those cream pots from last year so unless there is a different color I will pass and get BU of the ski finishes. I adore last years edsfs. Zesty and the lavender one are on my list since I do not have any of these colors and I really need to venture out of the nudes. Did u get to see the nude and metallics collection?
