Most of you were uber excited about this collection? Did it live up to it's hype?
I played into my mental excitement, but the tiny little display didn't get much love from the counter I visited. Trying to be in the pink Heatherette mood, I went ahead and took a chance at a couple of items: Melrose Mood (only during a Heatherette event would I mingle with a lipstick like this), the pale pink lipstick... a la Proenza Pink. I got my first love of the collection, Lollipop Lovin. Isn't the name too cute to pass up? Lastly, I picked up the gold reflects glitter since I missed out on it during holiday '07 and the Antiqued Gold Reflects glitter didn't quite meet my expectations. Still debating on the 3D glitter ;)
I want to go back for more.. the packaging, the packaging!! So, since I want something else, can you all recommend something?? I thought about the beauty powder in Smooth Harmony (1- re promote from the highly acclaimed Diana Ross collection, 2- I'm a beauty powder whore and the Fafi ones didn't rub me the right way, 3- I'm tired of bronzers. I want something else..more!)
Other things, I passed up on and why-
-Bonus Beat l/g- looked like c thru with shimmer
-Fleshpot l/s- Concealer will do
-Sock Hop- another cream coral.... anything special about this? I have Petite Four from sweetie cakes, which is a pinky coral. I thought I'd use that (since I've barely touched it) as a sub.
-the hot pink l/s and l/g- on my b2m list.. I thought I got the bright fix from Fafi?
-Smooth Harmony BP- another bronzer type powder? I've barely touched my beloved Warmed MSF
-Alpha Girl BP- too bright of a baby pink for me
-Eye shadow palettes- the green in Trio 1 reminded me of shimmermoss (I see Brit and I think alike!) Trio 2, basic colors that I think I have
-Liners- glitter liners.. I'm over after the holidays and have barely touched that set
-3D silver glitter--- love it, but scuuuurrred. I'm over 18. Can I rock it?!
-nail lacquer in $$$ Yes- gotta have. Don't quite remember the other.
Are these estimations correct? (I'm always looking for someone to talk me into buying something LLOLOL!)
Fafi- great with the selections and variety of color
Heatherette- best packaging!
Barbie- excelled in both categories hands down!
Check out The MAC Fetish to hear about Erin's fabulous and funny Heatherette experience!
I think this will curb my excitement for collections. I do however stay amped for collections with HOT packaging!!!
What did you love/hate? Tell me! Help me to pick out some other stuff?! Past collection must haves???
