GOLD FEVER also launched today at Nordstrom locations. It’s pretty much a launch of products that already exist in the permanent line, so I’m not doing a review, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll be happy to answer :)

  1. Hi hon!

    Are any of the items MUST HAVES from today’s launches? I’m not sure…

    How is the lasting power of the eyeliners? The colors are pretty.

    • I think the liners are the best, because they’re different and pretty. I love black-based liners, so these are right up my alley. So far, the lasting power seems to be good. No smudging, fading, or bleeding after 4 hours.

    Wasn’t Sharkskin supposed to be with this?! Im scared now!

    It’s already out on the Nordstrom website. Yes sharkskin is with this collection thank goodness. I love liquid last eyeliner, beautiful payoff but they’re sooooo hard to get off lol. Uhm all of this stuff is either permanent at the MAC store or a repremote. I’d get sharkskin, that’s my only real must have… now there are some wants, but I’m on a budget personally and I’m saving up for real limited edition stuff.

    • Yep, it’s out at Nordstrom’s! My displayer didn’t have it, so maybe they didn’t get it. They were missing one Cremesheen, too. Funny, the MAC store was also missing one – but not the same one.

    What i’ve known so far is that Sharkskin is now a paint pot called Blackground (not sure). In Canada, you can get it at The Bay and all MAC PRO stores. I was also told that their trying to DISC. all shadesticks.

    I don’t buy anything.

    I’d like to point out that Silverstroke, Brassy, Auto-Orange and Penny are all perm items that were recently discontinued.

    Putting them in a “collection launch” strikes me as an effort to sell the unwanted product faster. MAC, I slap you up the head for this assault on my intelligence.

    I actually kind of like Voile (didn’t think I would), and the 3D silver glitter…not sure what I’d do with the glitter though…

  8. L1onqueen

    I want the silver glitter, but don’t know what I would do with it either…any suggestions?

    • The glitters aren’t eyesafe (or at least, aren’t sanctioned as such). I’m not entirely sure their reasoning (because it can run the gamut to simply irritating to actually causing long-term problems, e.g. scratching the cornea). I use glitters sparingly, and the only ones I’ll even chance putting near my eyes are the Reflects, because they’re ultra fine.

      But some things you can do (some of these aren’t for everyday or anything)…

      – Mix with hair spray/water and spritz on hair (or mix it with a pomade)
      – Apply to cheeks for a glittery look
      – Add to lipgloss
      – Mix with a nail polish
      – Body glitter

    Yeah, I was thinking maybe they’d take the shadestick and spray paint the containers gold… you know, just for the sake of the theme of the repromote. Wonder how old they are? 😉
    My Nordies in Utah didn’t get Sharkskin either, but I’ve got my favorite MA cruising for some. Otherwise I guess I’ll buy online.

    This is unrelated, but what font did you use on this?

    and to make it gold fever, I picked up Silverstroke and both glitters

  11. Pamela

    This is sorta off topic/ but what font are you using to label the colors? I LOVE it. =) Thanks
