did want colour crafted. Not 2 sure think it might make me look dead lol. I have fair skin dark hair and brown eyes..any opinions would b appreciated..

JO Avatar

just realised i said about my hair and eye colour twice lol soz. Didnt mention the NW20 b4 tho. Do u still think it’d look good on me? Decided against the bright pink 1…i have a nice bright pink (revlon) so dont really need it. Cant decide on Made with love. Trying not 2 spend 2 much (Its not working lol) Interested in this collection also a couple of others…i have told my self other than those 3 collections i am on a makeup no buy lol

JO Avatar

Makeup art cosmetics. Okay so i wont b able 2 check it out if i go on sunday then? Or do they let people check it out early (if they have it and if i dont buy it that day?) If its even open on sunday lol

JO Avatar

Makeup art cosmetics!….erm i can get 2 a counter but not 2 easily. May go 2 my grandparents on sunday (they live near a counter..) But i heard its not out in stores til monday is that right?

THat’s correct. Colour Craft and Naked Honey are available in the shops from Monday, but they’re already up on the website.

I managed to order my Colour Craft haul yesterday morning and had it delivered today! 🙂 Everything is sooooo gorgeous! 🙂

mememe Avatar

colour craft is already out!woho0! (for us in manchester, uk.) i thought its coming out on monday too but its not. i bought all the lil goodies this morning! yay!

JO Avatar

I love the look of madly creative. Trimming talk i like surprisingly thought it’d b 2 bright also most popular and made with love i like.

Ever embellish looks interesting….kind of reminds me of something tho..

JennXOXO Avatar

Now I want Most Popular, Made With Love & Colour Crafted 🙂
I should’ve bought them when I went yesterday. I didn’t even look at them lol. Thanks for the swatches, Christine!!

Elle Avatar

From looking at these lippies, I want Most Popular and Made With Love Lipstick! Look like a Megan Fox lip… which I’m dying for!

Brittany Avatar

Colour Crafted looks really nice and creamy. That is the only one I saw that I was interested in… I’m definitely going to get it!! Other than that, I was really not impressed with this collection. Nothing jumped out at me. 🙁

Christine Avatar

Hey, good news for your wallet! 🙂

But I do find it frustrating when I really, really want to like a launch, but it just falls flat for me, too. I just try to remind myself that a) there’s always the next one on the horizon, and b) it’s better for my bank account!

Georgie Avatar

Gorgeous swatches thanks so much Christine! But would you say Trimming Talk is very dupeable? It is beautiful but I can’t put my finger on what it reminds me of in MAC already.

I got Trimming Talk & Madly Creative yesterdat and I am loving them so much. Like i mentioned earlier, when i went to MAC yesterday, my only intention was to get the 226. I swatched the lipsticks just for fun, but those 2 colors just caught me and i am sooo glad i got them. Yay!

Anitacska Avatar

I love Trimming Talk, will definitely get that, and will also check out Madly Creative that looks like quite a unique colour. I didn’t get any lipsticks with my order as I’d already spent way too much and I wanted to see them in person first, that’ll be next Wednesday! 🙂

Aubree Avatar

omg. why is most popular so light on your lips? it shows up so dark on me.

I have the one from the hellokitty collectin though. so maybe they changed the formula?

Cathy Avatar

I got most popular as well from this collection and it is super dark on my lips and doesnt look as shiny…weird……..:(
It looks better on you Christine…

ChristineDior Avatar

🙂 I ended up buying Trimming Talk, Madly Creative, Made with Love, and Ever Embellish

and a 226, which I totally forgot that I already bought it from the Blonde, Redhead collection 🙂

Annie Avatar

Hi Christine, I am still debating between Made with Love and Viva Glam V.
Being a poor college student, I only have the budget for one l/s right now =(
Any suggestions?

Evelyn Avatar

was thinking of getting colour crafted but im starting to think its tooooo light
whereas trimming talk, which i first thought would be too bright, is looking really pretty :]

JO Avatar

I just put in my order for CC. Shouldnt have done yet but i was scared things would run out as 1 of the lipsticks i wanted to try has sold out on the site :(. Colour crafted. The 1 i was messaging about loads yesterday 2 see if it would suit me. Eventually decided 2 get it 2 see. And now its gone lol Oh well everything i really wanted i got. Guess its good as i’m trying 2 save money. Cant help being a little peed off tho lol

aradhana Avatar

made with love looks really nice on you!

i’ll have to check these out when they are at my local counter….they’re on the uk website now, but i didn’t see them at the store yet….

Jamie Avatar

Hi Christine, thanks for the swatches! They all look good on you!
How would you compare Most Popular to Milan Mode? Which one is lighter?

JeanMarie Avatar

hey Christine, I’ve been looking for a lipstick that would look great with Fafi’s Totally It. Do you think Totally It would go well with Trimming Talk?

Kathylulu Avatar

Too bad Mad With Love is a frost finish one, I love the color but I hate the frosty sheen finish that frost lipsticks give :(. Oh well…

Money saved!

Lauren Avatar

Trimming Talk is awesome! I’m looking for more calmer shades for fall 2009 though. I’m tight on money so I’ve decided on Made With Love and London Life for day wear. But when I have enough money to buy more, Trimming Talk will be on my list!
