If they do repromote FM then I'll probably grab a few more just to be safe. I still use it every day and love it to bits!

I was actually able to get 2 sets of all the lippies and ended up selling 1 set because I wasn't too much into it.

I still have one set for safe keeping. smiles.gif

I skipped it too! I have too many red lipsticks and none if the items were unique. I also am not one of her fans (though I'm probably the only one). I'll skip this one too if it's re promote of the same items....

I use mine in one way or another every day too.  My fingers are crossed that it's coming back!!!

How many have you gone through so far?  I've still got TONS left of my first one!  But love it so much I will probably still snag one or two more lol.

I am torn. On the one hand... I very much enjoyed the Marilyn collection from last year, even though it was not the easiest thing in the world getting the products I wanted. I'm up for new items in new packaging, with a repromote here or there. I'm really happy that those who missed out altogether or on things they wanted will get another chance, if the Marilyn factor is important to them.

On the other hand, it seems really fast to turn around and do another collection based on the same person. I am not at all opposed to revisits in most cases, but a chunk of time in between would be nice. I would have preferred they did Venomous Villains again, with 4 new villains. I guess maybe that wasn't an option though, since Disney has that deal with Sephora for the princess lines at the moment. If not VV, Barbie or Hello Kitty, both way before my time.
I did skip the MM collection because they said the packaging would be very cheap-looking (using stickers). But now I do regret not buying the hightlighter, so I hope they repromote that one. But I understand that the people who did buy would like to see something different for this collection instead of all repromotes.
And I hoped for exactly the same thing that they would do another Venomous Villains collection, since I skipped that one bangdesk.gif

VV2 would be AWESOME. At that time I was just getting into MAC but I thought everything was so expensive so I thought I'd be smart not to buy anything from VV. Stupid, stupid me. th_wallbash.gif
post #337 of 1747

yeaah! a VV2 with another 4 villiains like Ursula, The queen of Alice in Wonderland... It will be AMAZING if they repromote wicked ways!

post #338 of 1747

I haven't even used my FM yet because I still have Play It Proper which is so gorgeous.  I can only imagine how this will look and yeah I want another backup.

post #339 of 1747

This is exciting! I skipped on the past Marilyn collection because I didn't like anything.The packaging was okay but nothing spectacular. Same goes for the colors, nothing wow'd me. It was disappointing. Hopefully with this new collection there will be different lipstick colors and prettier packaging! yahoo.gif

post #340 of 1747

With all the collections happening this year, my wallet wishes for a re-promote of the same products but my heart couldn't agree less. If they do reinvent the collection I'm hoping for better and or improved shades.  I was lucky enough to get a hold of all the lipsticks from the last collection and they are pretty but I feel like mac left a lot of room for improvement.  When people hear Marilyn they have high expectations right down to the packaging which was kind of boring in my opinion. 

post #341 of 1747

I hoping everything is a repromote except a couple new l/s. I don't want to deal with Stalker Stress.

Neither do I. It can be a bit off putting sometimes...

Me too.  I think I am not enjoying it as much as I could because I am using the heck out of my Gareth Pugh powder but once I get just a tiny bit of color from the sun, I am going to try and scratch pan...

FM is too light to use as an all over powder for NC 30. I do use it to set my concealer in my under eye area as well as the general area on the apples of my cheeks. It looks smooth and it brightened the area like a matte highlighter. I use mine sparingly because I don't want to run out too but I will definitely back it up if it gets repromoted.

LOL

post #347 of 1747

I am so on this collection!

post #348 of 1747

I'd like a back up of DA l/s so I could use it more, and possibly more FM's (even though I have 3), but other than that I hope it's a new collection. Although, The Perfect Cheek blush really is perfect... ahhhh well.

MAC should consider making it permanent since so many people love it.

post #350 of 1747
I definitely need more DA in my life. I only have one so I use it VERY sparingly.
post #351 of 1747

Many people have continually made this same statement about other MAC products as well.  Unfortunately, however, it is extremely rare that MAC does this.

Yup. Me too.  I've only worn it a couple of times since I bought it in fear of running out.  I have CIS too but it's nothing compared to DA.

Yup, it is rare.  The thing is though - they're losing profit for not making such popular things permanent.  Sure the hype of them in LE form makes them sell fast, but if they are truly THAT amazing - you know people would buy it on a regular basis, making them more money in the long run.

 

Look at how crazy a lot of us pale girls went for it when I came out.  I know I bought 3 for myself, I CP'd about 11 or 12 of them, if not more.  I know Gracie CP'd at least that if not more and also bought nearly as many for herself.

 

FM is one of those products that is really well suited for really pale women.  I think really pale women have just as hard of a time of finding something that works well for them as deep WOC do.  I know I struggle finding anything that matches me 100% perfectly.  There's always something *slightly* off, or it looks okay in person but in photos it still appears *slightly* too dark or too light.  FM is just perfect and I think MAC would really profit from making it permanent.

I'm not fair enough for this to be used the same way as the NARS light enhancing powder, which really doesn't show on me at all (beyond having the desired effects). I love FM, but it's lighter than my skin tone. I use it lightly and it provides surprisingly good coverage and definitely helps tone down my facial redness. I think that's what I like best about it. I'm hoping it will be my summer 'foundation' as long as I can keep my skin winter pale.

Besides, BPs aren't a permanent product anyhow. They aren't gonna just up and make them permanent now, especially just because of the hype over this one colour. It isn't even a product that they've had a colour for deep WOC. They've had two colours for lighter WOC, and plenty of colours for fairer skin. It's not a product that's ready to be made perm at this point IMO.

I agree!!  We need some nice mattes, that is more Marilyn!!

post #359 of 1747

Would love to see some matte e/s for this collection.  OR, some e/s with Real VP finish (Starflash would be better but my hope for that ever happening again is diminishing)

post #360 of 1747

Yay! I didn't get anything I wanted from the collection because I was traveling when it came out. And of course everything was sold out by the time I actually had time to sit and place an order. Very exciting news to hear :)
