    have you heard anything about new prolongwear lip colours? it’s been years since we’ve had new, bright colors. i heard feb 2016 we’d see some new ones. anything?…

    • there is a new stain coming called Versastain (or something along those lines). not sure about prolongwear yet. specktra.net may have more info!

  • Tony

    Have you heard of the Giambattista Valli collection that’s supposed to come out for Valentine’s Day?

    • Do you mean the neutrals lipstick photo that was going around? That is unfortunately a hoax. No Giambattista scheduled as far as I know (I have the calendar up to the summer)

    • Emma Elzbieta Juarez

      nahh…I sent this picture to the mac website…and I showed it to 3 mac stores…and all of them said that this was a fake picture…there is no such thing as valentines day lipsticks
