Well.

I’m not a teen, not new to make up and I know Mac since 2005-6. So I saw a lot of limited editions, a lot of colours, a lot of collections. And I have enough make up, I don’t want tons of items just because I’m all crazy about collections. I do love this brand but I’m not a fanboy (of anything, in my life, and proud of it). And I use make up, I don’t want collectibles.

So, I think Archie’s Girls is a very nice collection. Usually, with this kind of collections people go crazy. And you all know that here in Italy stocks are a mockery, online and in stores. You have to pre-order and then keeping your fingers crossed.

I wanted two items from this collection: Betty Bright lipstick and Lucky in Love pigment. And I pre-ordered both. But I managed to get only Lucky in Love, because there were a few Betty Bright‘s stocks and a huge list above me. However, it seems that Sunny Seoul is a good dupe, I’ll show it to you in the next post.

Obviously, it’s only a lisptick, it’s only make up: I’m not drowning in my tears, if it makes sense. But it’s a kind of a matter of principle that deals with an excessive, obsessive consumerism (getting tons of backups when you’re not a mua… well, it’s weird) and the thievishness of ebay re-sellers.

I know that low stocks are a marketing choice by Mac: keeping high the hype causes hysteria and a lot of fanboys aiming for collectibles. It’s all good for brand’s DNA. But it’s a game to which I do not want to join, especially because I know these workings.

By the way, Italian stocks are ridiculous and I think that in this case it’s more a matter of a low cost-effective marketplace. I understand that, but I’m still disappointed.

Now, it’s time to talk about Lucky in Love. I’m deeply in love with Mac pigments, though it was ages I didn’t buy any, since they changed in smaller packaging at a higher price. Again, disappointed. But I find pigments a such great product that I still find them charming. And I do not own any pigment similar to Lucky in Love: it’s a super nice green – aqua, a really complex colour that changes under different lights and it goes perfectly with spring’s pastel trend. Sweet and cute colour, I love using it as a wash on my eyelid with a darker colour on my crease and outer v (purple, blue, brown, bronze etc.). It brightens my hazelnut eyes like jewels. Plus, it has all pigments’ qualities: amazing colour payoff (it’s not sheer, it’s just a light colour :D), amazing lasting power, it remains perfect after a lot of hours without a base. I’m so glad I got it.
