Re: MAC - Monogram - (MAC's Annual Couture Collection - 08) Discussion
well, my awesome fiancé bought me some of the monogram collection for finishing and presenting my thesis and graduation.
I love love love the lipglasses and the lipstick. I got Marque l/s and Posh life and Distinguished l/g. I personally love Marque with Distinguished over it.
However: he ordered Sheerspark pressed powder in Old English and the Sheer Mystery Powder in Dark Secret. The Sheerspark pressed powder isn't bad, but I could have lived w/o it. When it runs out I will probably use the compact for blush. But, the downside is the mystery powder. They were all for very very very warm tones. I'm lucky my mom is warm toned. (she would be the equivalent of an NC35, if that even exists) While I, on the other hand am NW30. It wasn't too dark...it was just a funny yellow color on me.
It happens to look great on my mom, but she felt bad taking the AMAZING compact from me, so she put the powder in another container...I think I had an extra blush container that I had depotted w/o much damage. So all is well. I was just sad about the color.
Anyway, the compact is FABULOUS. I love it! It reminds me of an updated antique pocketwatch. <3
