New updates to MAC website

I feel like MAC is just collecting email addresses whenever they have the "Signup for priority notification of Z collection's release!" blurb. The Fafi website is up right now, and I didn't get any email about it....unless the email is to tell you when the products are available for online purchase...? I didn't get much notification for the release of the Holiday 2007 collection either.

Anyways, the MAC 'swatches' look rather disappointing too. And as usual they look nothing like the picture of the real life swatches I saw. Hopefully when I see them for myself they'll look better. Rollickin Paint pot for example, looked like a nice sparkly teal paint pot there but online, it looks dull green.

Slimshines are up too btw, and those ones are actually available for purchase if anyone's interested :) I'm not that excited about them but will definitely check it out this weekend just because I can't help constantly stopping by MAC ...

Ok, I'm eating my words 5 minutes after posting these....I now see so many colours I have to check out! I'm liking Long Stem Rose, Bare, Gaily, Missy, and Funshine. I have to try Voile out too, it looks like one of those colours that look different on your lips like Spring Bean Lustreglass which is green in the tube. But if I'm not mistaken the Slimshines are permanent this time around...I'm sure I heard that around Specktra a few days ago, and these don't have the limited edition triangle beside them either...

Lightful is out too fyi. I didn't even hear about this one...but i've never been interested in MAC skincare so ...

i cant wait for the unveiling party at my MAC store Sunday night, but even with the real life swatches, Im not too impressed with the colours. Oh and I called queen street PRO store, I had no idea that they ONLY did 55$ makeovers and you pay 55$ for the service. At a regular MAC store you have option of 30min on the floor make over with 55$ purchase.

hiya! thanks for replying to my comment ^^ Fafi isnt out til a long time in UK.. looking at march. i cant imagine how long for other collections lol. i love KATE, you can buy it from adambeauty.com, they ship internationally too! i havent bought from there but i know its reliable cos another blogger atouchofblusher.blogspot.com has bought there before and she always talks about Japanese cosmetics!

hey girlie!

Thanks for the tip as I had NO idea fafi was up yet! They never send me an email until two weeks later and I already have the bloody collection!

So stupid!

The swatches, as always, look rubbish on the site so I definately have to head in store to see for myself!

Overall, I'd say I'm going to be utterly broke with this collection as swatches on other blogs are really making me lem everything!

God I'm so diseased.

Btw if you haven't tried last year's slimshine they are awesome. I only got three when they had previously released and really loved them!

They are really creamy and moisturizing and you don't need gloss as they have a beautiful glossy finish!

I'm happy to hear they aren't LE as I really want to spend cash on Fafi and not worry about missing slimshine!

now that I took up your comment box with my long arse post I'll leave you ;)

hugs!

Yeah im not excited about Fafi...cute packaging, a lot of hype, but some of the colors suck...we'll see on Sunday!

'NES!!!!!!! AH! Don't say that! *slaps my hands over your mouth*

hehehe!

yea I hate the swatches on the MAC website too, they're never true to life. Surprisingly I am not at all tempted by the Slimshines since I have WAY too many lipsticks already! I've never really been a big fan of MAC to begin with...

christal: i didn't know that either! :( that sucks. I guess they're treating it more like a professional service at the pro stores.

gezebel: of course i don't mind :D and at least slimshines are permanent so you can put them off a bit!

nic nic: oh ok thanks, i'll look at that website too then :)

the muse: hehe awww, at least as you say, the slimshines can wait :) i didn't try the slimshines last year as i wasn't into MAC yet, but i'm excited to see how they look this weekend. the thing i'm afraid is that they might be too sheer for me and not give me any colour whatsoever. thats why i loved mattenes, i hope they bring it back permanently with a wider range of neutral colours...

nessa: i know, the colours look disappointing :( i read an excerpt from an interview someone had with Fafi, and she said she wasn't personally involved with choosing the colours. no wonder the colours aren't as good as it was hyped up to be...basically all MAC did was use her artwork on their products then.

MAC swatches are le suck. Haha. I stick to all you beauty bloggers for real life swatches!

I love the Slimshines! You should definitely take a look at them. They're the perfect cross between lipstick and lipgloss, and are super smooth. :)

petitebelle: i guess your wallet is happier with you than mine is lol :)

emilee: i agree they sound awesome, i just hope there will be some where there will be sufficient colour payoff for me.
