But will not be available until the 14th of March! hehe.
Carlos was kind enough to show us the testers in advance! Was supposed to go there last Friday but my lunch buddies can't make it so we re-sched it today, Tuesday (although I cheated co'z I went to MAC last Saturday with mom, B2M'ed for 2 lipsticks and gave it to her and I checked out the testers, slight haha!).
Anyway, it's good noh, at least now, we get to see the testers first before reserving anything, unlike before that we only rely on swatches online.
As per temptalia, the collection will be on 4 different displayers but will be released all at once! Ouch for my wallet, I'm imagining it screaming like crazy haha.
Swatched most of the blushes and eyeshadows.
The single eyeshadows are blah for me (too much pink and violet) although Quad 1 and 2 are ok but I just bought a new MAC 15-pc pro palette so as much as possible, I want to buy single shadows first =)
Initially reserved Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach last Saturday along with Very Violet eyeshadow and 2 Viva Glam in Cyndi Lauper (mom saw it and she wants one too).
Cancelled my reservation for the eyeshadow as when I checked again earlier, I realized I won't be able to use it.
After swatching everything, decided to reserve 2 Viva Glam in Cyndi Lauper and 3 Blush Ombres (out of 4) - Ripe Peach, Azalea Blossom and Springshine. Yep, I ended up with blushes again, what else is new! haha.
Viva Glam will be released on a later date though, April 1st.
Carlos showed us how pretty Ripe Peach is:
Our combined loot (mine, Jheng's, Myra and Jen's - both are my officemates, engk, we're all officemates pala! toinks!)
5 Viva Glam in Cyndi
5 Blush Ombre
I sent an sms to Carlos just now, to reserve MAC Laugh a Lot lippie too hehe (wala lang, trip lang LOL).
Grand Launch is on March 14, Sunday! If you have time, go to your MAC counter to check the items in advance. I'm just not sure if other MAs do what Carlos is doing (showing the testers in Advance). Carlos is from MAC Shangri-la, you can look for him there and ask if you can see the testers. If he doesn't know you, just tell him you were referred by Sol (that's me), he knows we're gonna blog about this. =)
