i cant stand how awesome the shadesticks look.. i hated the old ones.. these look better in texture.. easier to apply.. are they?

and i love the tri glosses just to look at in their bottle, even if they come out sheer haha so pretty!

yes, they are. they’re creamier than the old formula. when you swatch, the color is solid as opposed to that kind of sheer build-me-up color the old ones have. penny and red velvet are absolute musts.

love the shadesticks. the MSF’s are soooo pretty I can’t stand it! Oh and I really want that peppermint nail polish!! to bad it’s sold out online …boo!

I love looking at these pictures. It’s still a few weeks before this collection comes out in the UK, so it’s nice to have something to keep me going. πŸ™‚

OMG! Thanks so much Christine! But can you please do lip swatches! I always love your lip swatches, and it would be great if you could show swatches for the l/glosses and for the l/sticks! Thanks again Christine! I love your review as well! You are always so very informative!

Ooh thanks for the photos! I stopped by and checked them out today. I totally wanted some of it, but was able to resist. The lollipop lovin’ seems different than my heatherette one… less green or gold or something… just me?

The LE eyeshadows… I’m such a sucker for pinks so that cupcake one was really calling my name, but it did seem sorta paradiscoish like you said in your review, so I was able to resist. I also want to try the shadesticks because I never have before but… I can wait. I’m sure there will be another collection with shadesticks at some point haha!

I agree with you Christine, this collection doesn’t do much for me. I swatched all the items today, and most of them fell totally flat imo. The tricolour glosses were blah, the lipsticks were all pretty ugly, and the Seasonal Peach nailpolish was so streaky. Dear Cupcake was something that sort of peaked my interest. It swatched nicely on my skin so I may pick this one up. Sugarshot swatched very chunky on my skin. The shadesticks are the best part of this collection imo. They are all very pretty, but butternutty was definatly the color that excited me the most. Perfect Topping Mineralize Skinfinish was also gorgeous and I would like to pick that one up as well!

Hey Rachael! Sugarshot isn’t anything special, IMO. It’s a flaky lustre neutral highlighter kinda color. Phloof! will get the job done. The shadesticks are definitely the highlight of the launch πŸ™‚ We are so on the same page!

Stunning pictures Christine!! I want Bubbles, Lollipop Loving and St Germain lipsticks and Aquavert shadow. Would Cakeshop shadestick look good w/Aquavert? Are Butternutty or Lemon chiffon shadesticks similar colors to Beigy- ing shadestick?

Thanks a ton, Jody! It means a lot πŸ™‚

Hmm, I’d say Lemon Chiffon is probably closer in lightness, but Butternutty more in hue – like Butternutty is a bit pinkish, while Beige-ing is still grayish-beige, you know? I am sure this is not helpful!

And yes, Cakeshop would look great with Aquavert! I just tried it πŸ™‚

Just got Tasty, Just Delicious, Dear Cupcake, Lollipop Loving, Perfect Topping, and Sweet Thing ( <3 hot pinks and magenta at the moment :). I got Refined, Triple Yum and Saint Germain on Ebay, so I kept my haul small compared to HK! Aquavert didn’t strike me as a color I’d wear, so I avoided it. Sugarshot was pretty, but I think I have something like it. The nail lacquers were pretty in the tube, but not striking enough for me to want to wear.

Gosh makes similar colored shadesticks. They were only $12 and are on sale for $10. I’m picking up a few of those tomorrow since although I loved the shadesticks, I don’t really need more eyeshadow bases.

i love the two nail polishes! is the peachy one sheer at all?
and i think i’m gonna get lollipop loving and touch… i’m NC42, do you think those lip colours would look suitable?
