The only thing I want so far is Sun Dipped and Life’s Luxury Powerchrome Eye Pencil. If Swelter and Beautymarked were separate eyeshadows I would definitely go for them. Ripe For Love is nice too but I feel like I’ve seen the color elsewhere.

The Powerchrome Eyepencils are my favourite based on the swatches, though in the photos they look like chubby pencils (I hate chubby pencils). Can’t wait to see the reviews!

same products I’m into πŸ™‚ I’ll probably get Caliente, though getting a quad just to get when in rio seems a bet silly for me so i’ll probably skip it πŸ™‚

sigh, was so excited for these from the promo photots but very disappointed that When in Rio just looks like a dupe for Club. I thought it would be a true teal. The colors from the other quad look more interesting, but judging from the swatches it seems like it took a lot of effort to build up the color. I’ll have to wait for the reviews, but I suspect a dud. Rip for Love is stunning, but I feel like it’s similar to NARS Gilda, Chanel Frivole, or tarte Magic.

Ah I really hope this collection is good quality! Everything looks beautiful but I’m definitely trying to not get too excited until I find out if the products are as good as they look. Loving the look of Ripe for Love and Feel my Pulse though!

Got my eye on Ripe for Love! Just the kind of shade I love. But I’m definitely waiting for a review, because I love that shade enough that I miiiiight have some dupes already. We’ll see!

The first 4 eyeshadows look really interesting, which I assume are from the same quad. The second four look sheer and poor quality. But honestly, who gives a crap about MAC quads??? It’s the LIP products which are calling me!

I was wondering how long does it take you normally to test, photograph and review a collection of this size? Maybe this is an industry secret. I was just curious. You always do such a beautiful job.

The reply function doesn’t work for me with this new site. I seem to only be able to type a new comment. I tried both on my iPad and MacBook. I use safari.

I have the Naked palette. Is it worth getting the Bare my soul quad ? I feel they are similar. What do you suggest Christine? Thanks. Binh

This collection is one big YAWN for me, but I’m not a fan of summer collections precisely because so many of the colors are unflattering on me. It looks like a better LE collections from them, though, which is nice to see.

Also, I like the new site design. πŸ™‚ Much kinder to my laptop’s small screen.

Hot Nights is WOW…and I swore I had enough blushes, but I’ve actually been wanting a shade like that recently. And all of those lipsticks….gorg. I have WAYYY too many pink lippies but that one is really nice, and so are the others. Packaging is lovely. I want one of those shadow sticks too, but not sure which one. Will pass on the palettes.

Polished Jet liner and the Hot Nights blush will be mine! I love the one e/s quad too – the one with the Club twin in it – in fact, I love it so much that I already have identical shadows for all the colours so I’ll probably pass on that one but it is nice to see that the quality does seem to be there.

I got my Ripe for Love blush in the post today…so thrilled! Temptalia is my favourite site for the super high quality of swatches and great reviews. Great work Christine! So look so lovely and most lip colours look fab on you.

I shold skip this collection, I don’t see any must haves. I usually get both blushes from a collection,
but I all ready have ripe peach and prom princess & other pink blushes which are sorta close.
I might try sundipped bronzer, I just dont see anything I gotta have.

I ordered all of my stuff from the collection at 2AM EST (no lie). It was all up under the individual categories!! So excited! I got Sun Dipped Pro bronzer, Copper Strip & Polished Jet Powerchromes and Golden Elixir Strobe Liquid. Go get ’em, ladies!
