Guerlain Rouge G ‘Giulette’. I was obsessing over it because it was OUT OF STOCK EVERYWHERE FOR A FEW MONTHS and I couldn’t get over it, LOL.

But now that I am on to my second tube, I don’t see the colour anywhere anymore on websites, even the official Guerlain one.

Christine, is it discontinued??? I will CRY if it is. T_T

Um yeah… basically every MAC collection thats threatened to sell out (VV, WW, So Cute, brushes, etc etc LOL)…. in the past I would even skip a class to be first at the store, then I discovered online shopping.. staying up past 2 am sometimes waiting for the products to pop up!!! Only other brand that gets me is the Chanel polishes, but after Riva bummed me out so bad I kinda slowed down on them.

After months of research on which would be the best foundation I bought a professional airbrush (Iwata compressor and airbrush) with the Temptu silicone based professional series airbrush makeup. I was having trouble sleeping the whole time I was waiting for the package to arrive. When it came it was amazing, I could mix my perfect match, the coverage was completely customizable, the wear was phenomenal, the makeup looked like skin, like actually like skin, you really could not tell I was wearing makeup at all, and it didn’t take long to apply. But in the end there was a downside, I had to completely take apart the gun after each use and clean it fastidiously or else it would be ruined. The makeup was great but I just don’t have time or patience to clean the gun for 20 minutes every time. I haven’t found anything else that can compare. I bought the Temptu consumer one because you don’t have to clean it, but the formula is very different, it’s not a long-wearing or a skin-like and it made me breakout. I tried the Guerlain Parure Gold and the MUFE HD and a dozen others but nothing is good to me after the Temptu S/B. I tried applying the S/B with a brush but it’s not as good. Now I just don’t wear foundation, and it makes me a little sad actually, like meeting prince charming and then breaking up.

I caught my breath at first sight/swatch of the Urban Decay Naked palette at the 2010 L.A. IMATS. I was dying to buy it on the spot but the UD booth didn’t have any for sale, ugh.

I trolled your post about it for weeks until finally, after what seemed like an eternity of waiting, I got it from Sephora around the third week of July, 2010. That it was sold out from launch only added to the anxiety and sleepless nights!

I still remember the frenzy over that palette that lasted for more than a year. So crazy. I guess it’s the best selling makeup palette of all time for a reason.

Yes! Damn MAC online website releasing product just after midnight, making me stay awake until the wee hours until it’s released. I can’t tell you how many releases have kept me up late! LOL The anticipation is incredibly fun!

(Jealousy Wakes was one of them — LOL!)

I’ve never been that excited about a particular cosmetic before, but I did have a very bizarre dream once that involved a subplot where I was trying to hunt down some sort of makeup product and coming up short everywhere I went.

Hahaha, great question! A few years ago, the first MAC product I bought was the Hello Kitty Tippy blush. I was so excited that I finally bought something from MAC, which I considered to be the best beauty brand in the whole world. Later on, when it appeared that I had bought a cult product, I was thrilled.

Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter In The Air. From the second I first saw pictures of the bottle and swatches online, til the second I actually held it in my hands, it was all I could think about!

MAC Mega Metals! It seemed to take so long to get to Australia and there was so much hype I was checking the website about 10 times a day. Then it turned out I was allergic to the formula! 🙁

Iris apfel by MAC, I missed candy yum yum last year, and I didn’t want to miss pink pigeon lipstick this time, I even called the store the day before to put it in hold + other products, but they had su many lipsticks in hold already, that the wouldn’t do another one for me. I went to the store at 10:00 sharp, and they only had 3 pink pigeon lipstick available. I guess thia time I was lucky, but I was worry at bed time that I would miss it again. So silly.

oh god me too!

i remember being antsy all day when it launched because i needed to get my hands on Party Parrot, Flamingo, Diamond Dove, and Silver Gull. I didn’t call to reserve anything because I didnt have time at work and I literally told the lady at the MAC store that was helping me that she was a life saver!

Iris Apfel for me too. I love brights and pinks and really, really wanted the lipsticks. I got them online tho’, the first hour they went up.
