True, whereas with USPS you need to pay for a PO Box just to guarantee you get your packages!

Man, there was a big exposé on a post office here in Brooklyn recently. Total lax behavior and it's been like that for decades. Older people were bringing their own chairs to like up for hours. Rude clerks, not enough clerks, etc. I think since then there have been some changes.

If anyone's kicking themselves for missing Selena shadow, ABH Punch Fuschia from their Artist Palette is similar. And doing these comparisons I realized the other brands have better application. Especially UD, which I knew. Their shadows apply like butter.

No primer. Natural daylight.

MMB:

Closest is UD Naked 3 Limit here

Fotos, I have no dupes and this was the one I kept saying I didn't need but caved and bought:

Goodmorning everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. Finally got around to trying Como La Flor. I think it's really pretty! It applied really smooth for an amplified, felt more like a satin. Has anyone else had a chance to wear it?

This week I'll be waiting for the mail with my fingers crossed. I have 1 AP and 1 CLF (plus Liptensity in Smoked Almond which I threw in to get free shipping) being mailed from a Macy's in PA and 1 AP, 1 CLF, 1 DOY and 1 NMQM eyeshadow from a MAC in PA. I do not have tracking for either but my card was charged. Here's to hoping everything shows up safe!

I have been in LOVE with Amor Prohibido on me and am so glad I'll have backups because I see myself going through this one fast. It's the perfect rosey brown nude on me, MLBBB for sure. I think the extra CLF I'll gift to my assistant Natalia. It will look stunning with her complexion.

Also - THANK YOU ladies so much for posting the places on here that were accepting phone orders. I wouldn't have been able to get anything but 1 AP without this site. I'm very grateful!

Did some swatch comparisons w/CLF and DOY

CLF

(As you can see I have a few dupes for someone who isn't a red lippie person :rolleyes: Cardinal, WnW Fergie Saraghina, NYX Perfect Red...)

DOY
Swatched my deeper reds and some turned out not deep at all, lol

I think someone said it here, but Eugenie is close! Another l.e so I'm thinking Kylie Leo and Give Me Glow Sweater Weather even though they're liquid lipsticks so more matte.

Swatch vids on my IG.

I was wondering if DOY was close to Eugenie, thanks for the swatches!

I'll have to swatch my DOY with Eugeine but in a way I don't want too... I want to leave my lipsticks from the Giambattista untouched haha!! I'll have to take a picture of CLF next to Urban Decay Iracebeth tomorrow as on me they are pretty much the same only difference is the finish and I'm happy I love a bright cherry red :D

This launched yesterday in Trinidad! I was able to pick up Amor Prohibido which I had skipped and then regretted. I went about an hour after they had opened and nothing was sold out which was a bit strange. Haven't recieved my original mac order yet though but most frieght forwarders are based in Miami so I think the weather systems may have kept it back. Really enjoyed the products in person though

OMG, I didn't know it launched here. I thought it would've been later this month. Anyways, I already ordered mine off MAC.

So my Nordie's order of DOY x2 and MMB was delivered on Thursday and apparently my package was stolen. I HATEEEEE the USPS!!! I'm on the phone with them right now and of course there's a 20-30 min wait. I am LIVID!!!!


Oh my God that's my nightmare!!

I'm so sorry this happened to you, that's terrible! I'd be super pissed off. My blood always boils when I hear about packages being stolen. Did USPS ever offer you any kind of solution?
 
I apologize for the double post but I just received an email from UPS letting me know that my order from the MAC in Aventura Mall will be delivered tomorrow! I never received any email confirmation from MAC but it looks like they're just shipping them out via UPS. So for those who ordered from them, be on the lookout for your packages to arrive soon. Sign up for UPS My Choice (if you're not already) so they can email you the tracking number. Also, my order is showing up on my MAC order history page under "In-Store Transactions" and my MAC Select account has been updated to reflect the purchase.

Hmm! I have UPS my choice and haven't heard anything yet. But I'm glad they're shipping out! Hopefully I'll hear from them tomorrow.


My order from nordstrom that got delayed from the hurricane finally arrived today, though!! So glad I got a BU MMB. it's such a versatile transition shade. I can see myself going through it quickly.

I hope you hear about/receive your package from them soon! I saw people on IG telling other people to call this location recently so I think it's a possibility they may be swamped with orders. I'm still waiting to see if I'll get any notification for the IITB eyeshadow I ordered from a Macy's in another state. It will probably just show up in the mail, lol.

I'm glad to hear that you got your delayed order! I've had a couple of packages stuck in Jacksonville, FL due to the storm, one of which arrived today and others that are now on their way to me. I only ordered one MMB but it's a beautiful shade. At first I didn't pay it much attention but now I think it's going to be my favorite in the bunch. I may buy a backup during the relaunch.
