I am gonna back up both of these with my next MAC order (waiting for the S3C3 to restock =/- IA to restock).  I think I can't live without either.

Broke down and got Outre as well with my recent Shop/Cook order.  Should be here tomorrow.  Had convinced myself I didn't "need" Outre considering I had the Double Feature Duo with the "Outre-ish" looking shade people were saying was a possible dupe.  Just LOVE my little HG, Staple Moleskin... I'm afraid I'd be disappointed if I skipped Outre all together.  How's everyone using this shade?  To warm up the crease area?  Ideas?

I use it in the crease whenever I am using "warm" shadows and I use Moleskin 9 times out of 10 in the crease with cool toned e/s.  I did a look today with:

 

Embark in the V, Tan pigment for the brow bone, Jest in the tear duct area, Sparkle Neely Sparkle in the outter third of the lid.  I used Outre to blend it all out and from the crease to about 1/2 way up the brow bone.  This really brings out the gold flecks in my blue eyes.

I use Outre on my lids, crease and even brow highlight if my lid/crease colors are dark.

Wow.   I can't believe Offshoot did not get more hype--its my MLBB color.  I finally scored one  and I have been using it all week.  Pairs well with Deelight creamglass.

I know right! I'm just glad I was able to score 2 of them. It's the perfect pinky nude for me!

A few weeks ago, I saw Mythical at the Cabazon & Desert Hills outlet in Palm Springs, CA.

I may have seen it at my CCO recently. I'm going back tomorrow.  Want me to grab it if it's there?

post #3131 of 3162

Yes!!! LOL

post #3132 of 3162

I'll report back tomorrow - I'm going after work.

post #3133 of 3162

I checked my CCO this last weekend and they only had Outre and Moleskin shadows. 

post #3134 of 3162

If I remember correctly, mine had some fluidlines and LG quad... All of these collections are blending together for me though :)

post #3135 of 3162

can anyone tell me if they've ever found a dupe for mythical.  I lost it awhile ago, and would love to be able to replace.  Any line would do.  I thought the Style Seeker duo might be one.  Does anyone have both that can compare them for me?

 Mythology? I thought they were pretty close.

Mythical and Star Myth from the On the Hunt duo are very close. I would say Mythical is more pink and Star Myth is warmer.

 

Mythical - Star Myth

If you live close to a CCO, they should have it. They have tons of things from this collection.

post #3140 of 3162

I also got too damn much from this collection! LOL, and guess how much of it I wear?

post #3143 of 3162

I've been killing time checking out random MAC stuff and I came across swatches of the Lady Grey quad. It's sooo gorgeous! eyelove.gif

 

No idea why I never paid attention to it before. I can be a real eejit sometimes.

post #3144 of 3162

eh... i have the lady grey quad... and i ...DISLIKE IT... color payoff is blaaaah. U need a good base below the shadows and keep packing on with a stiff brush like the 242 for them to show up well.... Too much work for a lazy person like me..... The SHOP MAC COOK MAC quads pigmentation were way better imho

I have an obsession for getting almost all quads but I actually think this was a waste.  I wish I had waited and got it at the CCO.  The pigmentation is okay IMHO but all of the colors are very light, muted grey-pastels.  There is not a nice dark color to use for contrast.  The light lavender color is quite pretty and the Lady Grey color is a muted, mossy grey green with sheen is gorgeous, but not worth buying a whole quad to get it.  I think you would do well to try and dupe the light lavender and the mossy grey color and make your own quad.  Just my 2 pesos.

I feel so much better now, thank you! flower.gif

 

The thing with Lady Grey is that I already have similar colours (MAC and other brands), but when all four of colours are all cosily huddled up together in a quad they look all the more appealing. I suppose it's the case with most quads lol.gif

I agree, I think they pick colors that look pretty in the palette together when would I would really like is to have a nice highlighter/brow bone color, a lid color, and crease color, and a fourth one to either add contrast or be an alternate to the lid color for 2 different looks with similar themes.  But, who am I as a mere customer to dictate what I want in a quad???

U can dictate what u want :) Buy refills or depot colors and fill them into the empty MAC Quads.

 

Lady grey may be good for those ladies who like just a light wash of color on their eye lids. but as for me, as I m more used to stronger colors, I kinda find Lady grey a bit blah for me,

iagree.gif  But, to be th_devil.gifadvovate, I really like getting a discount on 4 shadows, so its nice when they do come up with a quad that can be used per se.  I have several empty 4 pan quads and I like to switch the colors around and make my own.  The possibilities really are almost endless and I can usually dupe any quad they come up with, so when I snag a quad it is usually for the nostalgia of the collection, or if they have a shadow that isn't available otherwise (this is usually the reason), or if its just a good deal--but that depends on ALL FOUR of the colors having good pigmentation and texture. 

post #3150 of 3162

Yep I agree with u. The pre made quads are really value for money... much more than the duos... (Did anyone notice that MAC is slowly releasing duos instead of quads in their collections. e.g. every fall they would release quads, but this yr instead of quads they released duo palettes instead. I hope they will continue to release quads, coz honestly quads are more value for money XD, not that I won't buy duo palettes, it's just that I prefer quads cozI have more color combos to play around with )
