If it's anything like the Lilyland Cremeblend blushes, I'm excited. My skin loves a nice creamy blush after a long drying winter!

btw, i LOVE pink blush/red lip combos

I know Ireland is probably a very small market compared to the US and Britain, but we have feelings and make-up needs too!

To think that there are any times where MAC has a sale is just mind-boggling to me.
With Ireland it seems especially stupid, since it would be pretty simple for them to open up the UK online store to Irish customers.

We are actually getting MAC online, through Kicks which is a big Swedish beauty and makeup chain, on August 25th. But it will only be the permanent collection.

it does seem extremely silly that people in Ireland can't just buy from the uk site

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

i was having a wee think about this spain/ireland not having access to an online store. why don't mac set up a general EUROPEAN site? surely it can't be that hard to have a wee language selecter at the top, and a currency changer for countries not using Euros?

then EVERY mac addict in europe would have access to collections, and if they stopped doing silly small amounts of products... problem solved!

sure there's a few flaws with my idea but in theory it'd work right?

red lipsticks are a sure-fire way to get me to part with my money

Shipping is the problem. Long distances, multiple postal services, etc, etc. NARS has the kind of setup you describe, and they charge €20 or some crazy amount like that for shipping to Sweden.

the way round that is possibly by keeping the regional distribution centres instead of having one main one. idunno, i only did 2 years of business management at uni so i'm not sure how it all works i guess that's the problem with ideas, in reality they hardly ever work

I find them trickier to apply than just a simple powder - hard to apply evenly. If you put on too much or if you don't dab it on in just the right spots, you wind up having to do a lot more blending. I like a 190 brush the best, since I need to do the least blending with it, but a 188 works too.

Also, I find I need to open them up periodically and sort of smooth out the top layer, especially if it's been very hot (that's probably not necessary, but I've caught my Lillyland ones "sweating" a bit, which makes me nervous.)

On the upside, they give a gorgeous satiny glow to dry skin - very natural looking once you've got the hang of applying it. Also, if you have peachfuzzy cheeks, obviously cream blush will minimize that, unlike some powders. I like skipping foundation as much as possible, so cream blush is helpful there. I've tried some crappy ones in the past, but if the Cremeblend formula comes back around, that's a real winner.

You should go for it! Florida is outrageous!

If you use a little toner on your face before you apply it and try not to grind it into your skin when you blend it, I'm sure your skin won't be unhappy.

From the creamblushers I have Rude (superpretty peachy colour) and Lies (for highlighting). They are dewy and feel so smooth on skin, nothing I've ever tried before.

Be careful, it's an addictive brand, but lovely all the way!

Yeah I know what you mean avoiding getting attached to too many brands! But if you ever take a leap to the dark side try Illamasqua.

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

I don't own anything from Illamasqua yet! I don't know why! I also haven't discovered Chanel and am discovering MUFE.
post #84 of 992

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

I have my first Illamasqua polish on... I'm loving it in a pretty serious way. I need moremoremore.
post #85 of 992

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

Ugh, I feel the same way with being scared to become addicted to other brands in addition to MAC! I've slowlyyyy been discovering Urban Decay, MUFE and NARS as of late and (fortunately? UN-fortunately? I'm not sure lol) I've been impressed and want to try more. At least I can't get my hands on Illamasqua yet, as Sephora doesn't ship this to Canada and that's the only place I could buy it, as far as I know... And if I'm wrong I might just have to channel my inner 5-year-old and put my hands over my ears while yelling "LA LA LA, I can't hearrrr youuuu!!!" for my wallet's sake.

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

i'd love to become addicted to Nars, however it's just so expencive! i only have one blush but would love more!
post #87 of 992

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

I am not a big fan of the cream blushes either. Like Susanne they just don't work with my combination skin.

I only have one Illmasqua blush in "Katie" and I love it. It is super pigmented. I would love to get more of their products.
post #88 of 992

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

Cosmetics addiction is serious business idd. I will be long-term addicted to MUFE and Illamasqua if I try them, I just know it, and well honestly, I've been reading their forum sections so, I doomed!

The only problem is that I amd already a yunkie for NARS, Chanel (yes, mami loves expensive brands ¬¬) Bobbi Brown and MAC (which will ruin my economy with so many collections). So it's time for MAC to release som new info or I won't make myself responsible for trying out new products lol.

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

I'm afraid to even try a cream blush. They just seem, like some of you guys said, like they wouldn't work well with my oily skin. I just don't like the texture at all.. And I also feel like I'd make a mess with it.
post #90 of 992

Re: MAC - Stylishly Yours Discussion

I do have oily skin and I wear Cactus Flower from NARS almost every summer days. It tends to stick better to my skin in the super-hot days than powder blushes and I haven't noticed it makes my skin any worse

About applying it, I do that with my fingers (mostly cause I am too lazy) but you should try the brush 130 from MAC, it's just amazing for cream face products.
