You look awesome in every lip color, Christine. 🙂

Cutester is the one I’m getting. I have lots that are similar but I want the kitty packaging.

I bought cutester lipstick yesterday, too. Reminds me of my Dior addict gloss in 224 or something, but cutester is sheerer. Very cute color and wearable anytime. I don’t like the rest of lipstick, not my coloring. I don’t like the gloss either, looks cheap n sheer. It’s like mixing your own art with tiny tiny glitter. Overall colors are kinda boring and not very hello kitty.

You look great in them! I’m dissapointed that Fresh Brew is so sheer. I wonder if the colors are buildable. Thanks for the swatches! And all that hard work, your twitter said you drove half an hour to get to the unveiling 😡

Thanks, Angie! I try pretty hard to get them to as pigmented as I can, so this is usually 3-5 passes of the lipstick 🙁

Yeah, the mall isn’t THAT far in terms of miles, but it’s not easy to get to. Freeway at 6pm is slow and painful, but inside roads take at least a 30 minutes ’cause they’re about as jammed but more reliable.

Gahh, I can’t stop staring at all of the swatches. I can’t wait to go shopping. So many gorgeous colors in this collection, and none of them are similar to colors I already have.

Yep. I gotta wait till later to get a few of the items. I’m waiting on Big Bow and Most Popular lipsticks, Nice Kitty and Fast Friends lipglasses, Tippy blush and Girl Groove glitter eyeliner. Hopefully they will all still be there by the time I get more money. If not, I’ll have to find them on Ebay. I usually don’t end up getting the stuff that I wanna get later, but this time, I’m determined.

definitely, i just called my local mac counter & im going in tomorrow to pre’order the stuff i want including strayin’ & then pick um up on the 12th. thnnks christine! your swatches helps out alot! last nite was tooo pack’d I got whatever i thought would look good. lol.

YAY! Sounds great 🙂 Glad you were able to pick out what you wanted before it sold out!

Oh yeah, those events are insane, huh? I was actually really happy I just grabbed it all and went home to swatch. It surely would have taken me at least an hour or two to get all the swatches since everybody was trying to get to the displayer!

definitely. i called my local mac counter, & they told me that they’re doing a pre’order list which is great! so im goin in tommorrow to make my orders for the rest of the stuff I did’nt realize were nice untill i seen your swatches such as strayin’ & etc, last nite was too hectic&crowded that I was able to try any so I went for what i thought would look good! thnks christine! you swatches helped out alot!

Seeing these swatches I’m now not sure about Strayin’, it actually seems a lot like Gladiola which I’ve got, but now really like Big Bow instead and still favour Most Popular. 🙂

Thanks for the fantastic swatches once again! Strayin’ and Most Popular are definitely on my list! I’m still on the fence about Fashion Mews…??? Not many can pull off light, frosted purple lipstick…

I’m betting that Fashion Mews would look really pretty with one of the lipglasses over top of it. Maybe Fast Friends or Sweet Strawberry.

It’s kind of sad…none of these are really working for me. But I’m glad I know now! More money to spend on other things…the beauty powders are gorgeous… 🙂

well, I don’t know about Fashion Mews now. It looks a little too frosty for me. I think I’ll do Strayin or Big Bow, or maybe both! LOL! Thanks for the swatches Christine!

I liked the idea of Fashion Mews, but I don’t think I would ever wear it. I’m going to go with Big Bow and Cute Ster now that I’ve seen the lip swatches! Thank you!

Is Most Popular a fairly dark color compared to the rest? In other swatches I’ve seen it looks like a very deep berry, and I can’t pull off dark lips well. But here it looks much lighter.

Yes, it’s the darkest of the set, but it’s NOT what I’d call a particularly dark color. It’s not a vampy color at all.

It’ll be Most Popular and Big Bow for me. They are both gorgeous, yay! I’d get Strayin too, but it is too similar to my pink YSL rouge volupte to justify bying it.

And it looks like I’ll skip on the glosses 🙁 Oh well, there will always be another collection.

Thank you so much for all the great swatches, Christine!

I’m really liking Big Bow and Most Popular. The others are a bit light/frosty for my liking. But maybe if I can test them out with some lipglosses over the top.

I wasn’t even considering Fresh Brew before but you look amazing with that color so I may just be checking that one out. Thanks again so much mamas for sharing! Your posts rock!

**do you know if most popular is by any chance similar to sweetie l/s? also…do you have flowerplay l/s by any chance? if so..is it similar to big bow? cutester similar to any mac l/s’s? sorry for all the questions..trying to decide which i really want…thank youf or the lip swatches! =)

Nah, it’s not. I love Sweetie, but Sweetie is a totally different color!

I don’t have Flowerplay, sorry 🙁 Big Bow is similar to Fun ‘n Sexy from Fafi from last year, if you have that!

Did anyone else find that the lipsticks break at the base really easily??? i’m exchanging all of mine tomorrow =(

And it wasn’t just mine… i noticed all the testers were broken… but just thought maybe people were being rough with them… boo =(

Which lipsticks go best under Sweet Strawberry, She Loves Candy, and Mimmy lipglasses? Thank you so much for the swatches. You save me so much money 😛

christine which lipstick is personally your favourite?? i cant decide between strayin..most popular..and big bow..

strayin catches my eye the most..but i never tried something so eye popping as that..im afraid it’ll be too much for me.. please help =]

I got strayin’ and I LOVE it… it’s a bright pinkish color and it’s a frost. If you’re light to medium skin toned, then it will definitely look pretty on you. If the color is still too bright for you, then you can tone it down with probably a paler or lighter shade lipgloss.

You’re welcome Melissa 🙂
By the way, Strayin’ also has good staying power.
I tested it out today… the pigment stayed on my lips even after eating and drinking. It’s a great lipstick! 🙂

I got fashion mews and it looks awesome. Its the first color sold out.

I recieved strayin, tippy, nice kitty, fun and games, milk, bluegreen, and pretty baby today from nordies. I cant wait to play with it.

Thanks Christine for the swatches early.. is Big bow like fashion mews as far as texture and color deposit? Just wondering…

No problem, Susie!

Big Bow is different – it’s very sheer and not at all creamy. Fashion Mews has more color and a bit more creaminess to it.

thank you for your reply. I have two more question >_< I’m kind of new to the whole make up thing and never wear bold color lipstick before. I own lot of slightly sheer neutral color glosses and lipsticks so i was wondering what would you recommend for look with lavender whip? and I don’t know if you already did but can you please do a look with that lipstick? If you don’t mind. ^^

WOW i got cutester like a week ago and im almost to the little imprint!
i really love it
its the purrrrrrfect everyday color
i also love my pink fish TLC !!!!!
getting a back up 2day!!!!!!

I find that most popular is too dark n bright on me!
I want it to look like the pic on here (the on lip picture)
any way i could make it appear sheerer and more pink?
help!
Thanks =]

Hi Jessica,

If you apply less it should apply sheerly… or else you can try to blot some off (like kiss the back of your hand).

Fresh brew looks amazing!Is it really that nice or it’s just a picture.?I am planning on buying this one but don’t know if it will look good on me,since I am pretty pale.

Hi!
I know it’s a bit late but i absolutely NEED to know if someone could find any dupe of Cute-ster. It’s so lovely and became my favorite shade for everyday… And I would love the dupe (or closest color) to be a Lustre too.
So if someone can help 🙂 Thank you!
