  1. I am typing as I am writing. I have been completely clueless about MAC new collections. I am not surprised that this lipstick was sold out in seconds. Do you remember Pink Friday?? I would be in front of the computer at 11:30pm and midnight (that’s the time it was released) Then…in less than 30 sec, that thing was sold out. I really got it thanks to silverlips…what about remember the MSF Stereo Rose. A MESS!!

    • I know ALLLLL about the Pink Friday mess! You know how bad that was, lol! I forgot to mention Stereo Rose. I searched so far for that thing. SMH. It’s ridiculous!!!

  2. lol…you also mentioned Pink Friday. I had to stop going to specktra because the ladies would give me a heart attack. As soon as there was a new MAC collection, people were like I am buying 10 back-ups!! Then I would panick, wait a minute, I want one two…sigh..glad you are making videos!! by the way I love the snowflakes! Happy holidays!!
    p.s: everything is sold out!! gasp!!

    • Is everything sold out, now?! OMGosh!!!

      That’s why I end up stalking the site, lol!!! I kept seeing people say they’re gonna get so many backups, and I’m like I need to get my stuff before everyone does, LOL!!! It’s total hysteria.

      I’m trying to get back into doing videos. I like doing them like this!

      Happy Holidays to you, too!!! 🙂

      • I will be in Boston on Friday. My first stop is MAC…I am planning to go to all of them..LOL.
        I am afraid to go back on Spkectra….it is bad for my wallet and my heart..lol

      • Yes, it’s hard on us women! Someone in the thread for this collection said that this is the female equivalent of standing in line for Jordan’s, lol! It’s true!!!

        I hope you get the lipsticks!!!! I just got an email saying they shipped it! Yay! Lol!

  3. I have totally given up on trying to buy it when it is first out. I just wait until it’s at the store. The last few years I have just been waiting out some products until or if they hit the CCO. Because I feel that MAC releases so many collections within a year. That when I want a lippie or whatever, I find that in the next few weeks there’s another collection. It’s so overboard that I just can’t anymore.

    • It’s true that MAC releases too many collections within a year. They’ve been doing this for years. I’m guessing it’s been like that, since Estee Lauder bought MAC. They know that regardless of them releasing so many collections, people will still deplete their checking account or be in more debt to their credit card, just to have these products. It’s crazy, but smart at the same time, LOL!!!

      I completely understand how you feel in terms of giving up. I have come to that point, now. When you step back and look at all this, you see how ridiculous it really is. I just wanted to get my hands on that Pink Pigeon, because I’m truly in love with blue-based pinks. I knew that was one of the most coveted lipsticks, so I knew what I have to go through to get it, LOL! It’s sad, but I’m done. I just can’t do it anymore. If they repromote Quick Sizzle in another collection…SMH. *sigh*

  4. Girl it is ridiculous, I went to the PRO store to see the collection, I got 2 lipsticks, but all 3 collections didnt do anything for me. I am so glad I don’t run and buy the entire collections like I used to…

    • I didn’t even look at Apres Chic. The colors don’t seem like it would be flattering to me.

      It’s been a while since I’ve bought an entire collection. Me buying the lipsticks I bought from “Strength” is a lot more than what it’s been lately, LOL. I just can’t do it anymore.

  5. Did you get any of the other lipsticks or just pink pigeon? Oh, and I agree with everything you said-the whole process is just ridiculous.
