post #1681 of 5137

Thanks for posting. The light appears lighter for Fashion Boost...so maybe they're actually pretty similar?

I'm into it! It reminds me of Sweet & Sour which I love. 

 

I kind of want everything except FOD.

I got to see this collection yesterday in person. I'm in love. My favorites were Flat out Faboulous, Dangerous, Fixed on Drama, and Fashion Boost lipliner.

Also I asked the artist if the collection is permanent and she said yes, now I come online and see people claiming some things are LE so I'm just completely confused. th_dunno.gif

I really pray/hope/wish/dream that is all permanent, it would be an awesome move by MAC. But then again they LOVE the LE hype... 001_unsure.gif

) so I can never swatch or see anything for myself and good thing you guys and them are here otherwise I'd have to blindly order from MAC. Sure there are things that could be improved (although you can never please everyone no matter the hours you put in), but still  I'm happy they're here

Stupid question : have there been PLW lip liners before, and if so are they really longer-wearing (is that a word ? smiles.gif ) than regular ones or are they like the new PP, same staying power and formula but more expensive price because of the PLW mention ?

PLW LP have been around for well over a year now, and they indeed stay on, and don't transfer!

The only items I want from this collection are FOD and FOF. The lighter colours are unlikely to do me any favours (light + matte = fail) and the rest aren't anything to write home about. Comparison swatches might change my mind though.

No patchiness to me either nope.gif

There's no need.

Again, all the lipsticks are perm, all but one lipliner are perm.

Does anyone thing that Runway Hit will be a decent nude color for NC44? It does seem light but do you think it will work with a lip liner? Or maybe just in the center of the lip for an ombre type lip? I love the color eyelove.gif

Girl, a lot of folk are pondering that right now. I am leaning toward buying and using with a darker liner, and I am NC50.

Thanks Erine :) You're so lucky to get to swatch everything tonight eyelove.gif

 

Maybe after that you'll be able to help me : is there one in this bunch that could be used (I mean without altering the color) with Party Parrot, one with Pink Pingeon and/or Insanely It  and one with Daddy's Little Girl? I'm having trouble with these colors flower.gif

Maybe i missunderstood the girl at my counter.

 

Well i ll get my relentlessy red on monday yahoo.gif It s such a lovely colour and i ll BAC2MAC for Fixed on Drama and Flat out Fabulous when i go to Madrid on Wednesday. They don t accept pans without the metall insert in Germany . In Spain they accept them also without the metall insert and i ve enough empties for at least two lipsticks

D, SV, FB (may alter the colour just a bit, but you're not gonna be able to find an exact match for every lipstick out there every time. It's just not possible nope.gif )

Check out tkbtrading.com for metal pans. That's where i get mine. They ship internationally. This way you can recycle em at both locations!

Thank you I ll add it to my favourites but i prefer to BAC2MAC in Madrid. I don t have a pro store in Munich where i m living currently but there s a pro store in Madrid  and i prefer to get some of the lipsticks they sell at the pro store. :-D
