My order shipped as well! got to snag Dreaming of you and como la flor. really loving the early access
I was thinking that someone left right after the Star Trek launch. That pre sale went so smoothly (I don't know if there was a limit imposed on buying stuff because I only ordered one item of each product and I wasn't charged for shipping!). From then on, it's been problem after problem- switched labels, bogus shipping charges, disorganized launches. etc.
I am glad that I am not the only one is order is "still processing". Wonder what that means- is MAC adjusting the shipping charges or are they trying to find all the items to send us?
I think it's just mayhem over there. Oh good, my first order with the shipping charge shipped (DOY). Just waiting on BBBB and Selena e/s.
WOW! In this day and age...they generated so much buzz for this collection, you would think they would get their $h*t together to have a smooth, successful pre-launch/launch, etc. But no...just as we expected...
And I still wonder whose heads rolled for the Taraji fiasco...that cost MAC a pretty penny...but who are we kidding, right?! By giving everyone $25 credits they sure as heck made up the money. I spent way more than the $25 when I placed my order...
[MENTION=65583]Mac-Guy[/MENTION] is right! MAC plays us hard and fast!
you're right! I checked the tax on my order and they charged me $1.20 more because of shipping! Ugh!!!For those of you who were charged shipping and handling on your orders, make sure they refund you not only for the shipping charge, but for the additional amount of tax you may have been charged for the shipping as well. I can't speak for anyone else's orders but they taxed me on the total with the shipping and handling charge, not just the cost of the items I purchased. Since shipping was supposed to be free, we should be getting back the additional amount we had to pay in tax on the shipping and handling as well. I'm sure they are taking that into account but it doesn't hurt to make sure to check for yourself when you are either charged for your order (should they just deduct the shipping amount when the total posts to your account) or if they issue a separate refund. I just wanted to bring attention to this just incase anyone didn't notice.
I checked my banking account and it only has a $24 charge from MAC. I bought everything except the brush, liner and mascara. Weird.
Swatches! All taken outside in natural light. On the shadows,I didn't use primer. Missing my baby kind of blends in with my skin and I think it'll be good for a barely there lid colour or brow shade. Fotos y Recuerdos is a lovely shade,but I see why all the bloggers have said it is the weakest of the bunch. I'm going to play around with it on my eyes and stuff over primer though and see how it fares. Anywho, on to the swatches.

Dang! Now I wish I would have put techno cumbia in my basket when it first released. Second time for me to miss another of MAC's wonderful mess ups
Great swatches! This makes me soooo glad I grabbed BBBB! I can't wait!
What are your thoughts on Selena (es)?
