post #511 of 1247

I'm interested in the corrector and concealer. I've started to develope dark circles and my usual concealer (MAC Select Moisturecover NW15) can't cover those up completely.

So my questions are: What would be the best shades for me? And also are they suitable for very dry & sensitive skin? I can't use scented products in my eye area. Well, at least most of them make my eyes water/burn.

I'm a tad lighter than NW15, so a lighter one than that would be great.

(any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated as well!)

 

Oh, and I was slightly interested in that cool toned neutral e/s quad (Tierra Sienna?) Were those LE? Seems like it's sold out. I thought those palettes were new to the permanent range.

The palettes are permanent. If they're sold out, it probably just means that they sold through the initial shipment, but the Maestro liquid lippies and the palettes are here to stay. As long as anything stays in cosmetics.

Oh man why do I keep coming to this thread? It's damaging to my wallet. I shall purchase Maestro lipstick in #400 (runing outta Chanel Dragon), #201 and #502. I'm so predictable with lip colours, lol th_rolleye0014.gif

I think we have a winner in the "find a replacement for Chanel Dragon" sweepstakes... I haven't even had a chance to look at these yet. Every time I go by the Armani counter, it's a flippin' zoo. I did kind of get to swatch the shadow palettes, but they had them sort of shoved under part of the counter (they're in a really tiny space). One of the SA's tried to help me, but there were too many customers and they were preparing for the Lip Maestro launch event, so the most he could do was leave the palettes on a table for me for a couple of minutes. 

 

As I suspected, Pantelleria and Boudoir were my favourites. The formula is really nice, although I still remain to be convinced about how useful the thin strip pans are vs squared ones.

iagree.gif....and that is really great!

 

I still have Dragon + BUs.But I do not have to worry about running out of it anymore.

These are my favorites also. I have not seen them in person but they look so pretty especially Pantelleria for the green lover in me. Are the stripes quite small and slim. I like square ones also. I find them easier to use. How true are the colors as oposed to the online swatches?

 

I also like the colors in YSL's Pure Chromatics palette in #10. It looks a bit sparkly online. Anyone checked this one out?

I just need to go play at Nordies and not get too sucked in surounded by all the goodies. I could live in that area of the store.

I found that the swatches are pretty representative, actually. There is always something about these shades in person that the camera can't quite capture, but they're a good guide in terms of what the colours look like. At least the ones that I've seen...

Thanks Kate. I tried to make it over to that mall but didn't have time. I've got to get a bit more shopping done so I plan to get over there Tues or Wed.

Never pass by an Armani counter when you're trying to do Christmas shopping.

Dark Velvet somehow jumped into my purse and became part of my Christmas makeup. Can't believe how light this formula feels. Like all liquid lipsticks, it requires a bit of technique when applying, but i'm really impressed. Funny thing, it looked more like a deep brown-red when I swatched it on my hand, but on my lips, it's not nearly as warm. I feel like lipsticks are refusing to pull warm on my lips. It is a really deep, lush colour, though. The MUA immediately grabbed it from the selection and said "THIS is the one you're going to want!" She was absolutely right.

I know it looks beautiful on you Kate!

Why thank you! Here's what it looks like, actually. 

 

 

700

 

The formula does pull into my lip lines a little, but it's not very noticeable. I found the lasting power was very good and even after eating, it left a nice, even stain. The real selling point, though, is the way it feels. It's like having nothing at all on. There's no weight, it doesn't give me that tight feeling a lot of liquid lipsticks do, it doesn't crack or become uneven. Quite remarkable. Although my MUA warned me that reapplication was tricky, I found that it was incredibly easy. I didn't get any feathering or smudging and I reapplied a couple of times during the day (I was cooking, so a lot of tasting was involved!). 

post #527 of 1247

Very beautiful! I agree that lip colours tend to look cool and not warm on you. Quite sure it won't look that pretty on me. Lip maestro will launch at my counter in early January. I'll be looking out for 400. Is it the same shade as RdA 400? I've not seen RdA400 before, I hope I get to swatch it since its the famous red. I'm curious to know if Lip Maestro is too dry for my lips.

post #528 of 1247
Wow that really looks great on you! And I love the blond hair! You do red lips amazingly well.......it wouldn't look that good on me either MissQQ winks.gif.

Thank you very much, ladies! Miss QQ- I believe that #400 is supposed to be like the RdA of the same number. It's the sort of iconic, bold, cardinal red lip. And I don't think it would feel too drying. I've never come across a liquid lipstick that wasn't either drying or prone to bleeding, but this one isn't. (If you eat something oily, you might experience a little bleeding around the edges. I did notice some after Christmas dinner, but it was easy enough to wipe away.)

The palette is gorgeous! I feel I have dupes, but it is nice to have all the colours in a pretty, white palette.

My thoughts exactly. These didn't appeal to me as much at first, but now I feel like maybe I spoke too soon. Although I think it might be partly because I just love those little Armani palettes.

I still don't know if I'm sold on the concept of a sheer beige-toned lipstick. Sounds like it would just be a very expensive tinted lip balm. But it does look really nice on her, very spring like and fresh. Although she'd said that the turquoise wasn't as pigmented as the other shades, I don't have any trouble seeing it on her eyes...

post #534 of 1247

I love the white compact!  And I too thought they swatched pretty well to be 'less than expected'.  Not sure if I'll plunk down the dough - I wouldn't use the blue.  It looks great on her though!!  yes.gif

 

Sheer beige would be 'sheer dead' on my Saran-wrap lips.  nope.gif

Lol... Saran Wrap... I'm not sure that shade would work on me, but the rosier colour she refers to might. 

post #536 of 1247

Yes, "spring" came into my mind immediatly too heart.gif

 

I agree with you on the pigmentation.The turquoise looks nicely pigmented on her!

 

The lippie is definitely a skip for me.I have Tropical Mist from CR collection which gives me

similar pretty nude shimmer.

Hi everyone!

 

My english ins't perfect, so please forgive me my eventual mistakes.

 

I live in Poland and I'm dying for ETK shadow 27 oxidised silver.

Unfortunately, it's no longer available in my country.

 

Have you heard anything about it to join to the permanent collection?

Or maybe you know any international online shop where I can buy this shade?

The few I found offer extremely expensive postage to Poland (e.g. nordstorm) what doubles the price of eyeshadow.

 

greetings from Poland bouquet.gif

post #538 of 1247

I received the spring palettes today...they are both sooooooooo pretty eyelove.gif

 

I am totally in love with them love.gif

Hello!! Welcome to Specktra! Please don't worry about your English- it's far better than my Polish (which is non-existent). Unfortunately, Oxidised Silver isn't becoming permanent, but I believe it's still available through Neiman Marcus and they do ship internationally. The shipping might be expensive, but if you really want to get it, that would certainly be an option. I believe it's also available at Nordstrom's as well. Not 100% sure if they ship to Poland, but I think they do... Good luck!

Those are pretty. Dying to know what you think of them. I've found the quality of the shadows in all these Armani mini-palettes to be excellent, even if I opted not to buy them. They even seemed more pigmented than the new Quattro shadow palettes.

Macina could you swatch the second one, because I've only seen swatches of the one with the light blue e/s?!
