I think I'll have a look at Armani and Bobbi Brown. (And I'm looking forward to the MAC Apres Chic ones and the new Givenchy)

I broke down and ordered the holiday highlighter. I'm super excited, I really hope I like it. I got a good discount on it, so resisting was impossible.

 

I love how it looks here:: YSL 2012限量聖誕彩妝「繁星夜宴」蜜粉盤&眼影盤 @ 熊貓可可進化史 :: 痞客邦 PIXNET ::

Love it. Its so pretty and when blended on her hand not all sparkly as it does in her other pics.

 

I also like the kitty at the top of the page. He made me smile on this otherwise gloomy day.

That swatch confirmed that I will order it. Not as sparkly as I feared and a beautiful glow.

 

I got an email that my order was stopped, because the connection was interrupted when I placed it and I need to go back to my cart and complete it. WTH? I think that's a mistake. When I look in my account it's listed under orders and it says processing. And my cart is empty. shrugs.gif I hope it goes through. I have never ordered there before. If it hasn't shipped by Tuesday I'll contact them.

Exactly....it is a very lovely glow!!!

Yes, it should be. Unless it's sold out already.

The highlighter seems to have a pink sheen and isn't as glittery as I thought. It's very pretty.

Naynadine, do you have very pigmented lips? I do and lighter colors often look similar on me because my own lip color has too much of an influence.

I think that might be the problem, yes. My lips seem to have a lot of pink in them naturally, now that I think about it.

 

My highlighter is on its way. I wrote an email, but didn't get a reply, just the regular order confirmation. The tracking is at 40%, so it might be here tomorrow already. 

post #377 of 1330

You might want to try them with a light neutral lipliner like Chanel Natural or Beige or even just MAC Prep & Prime Lip to tone down your lips a bit before applying the lipstick and see if it makes a difference.

Got my highlighter! It's super pretty. Well, I only swatched a tiny bit, but I can tell that I like it already. I have to try it on my face of course, but I'm beat after being at the dentist for hours. Will try it properly in the next days. There is shimmer, but the particels are not that big. Texturewise it honestly reminds me of the Marylin Beauty Powder, very soft. And it does have that pink opalescent sheen as in the swatch I posted the link to.

Not a fan of the sequin pouch, looks a bit cheap IMO.

Thanks, that's actually the one I wanted to buy for a while now.

I usually use P+P Lip, but I don't feel like it makes a difference.

YAY...I am so glad that you got it and like it Naynadine!!!

I think Prep+Prime Lip is more so to make your lipstick apply smoother and last longer, not to affect the color. I think MAC Lip Erase is what you want to neutralize your natural lip color. I've never tried it. I just use a lip pencil either close in color to the lipstick shade or close to my natural skin tone, which I apply over Prep+Prime Lip.

post #382 of 1330

Naynadine--so glad you received your powder. Yuck I hate going to the dentist even for regular cleanings. I hope you get to relax.

 

 

CartoonChic--Does the Prep+Prime lip really work to help the staying power of lipstick? I haven't tried it. If it does I need it.

For me it does! I've seen a bunch of other members say P+P Lip works great for them as well. It's a staple for me now. I apply it and wait until it feels tacky, then I continue with my liners and lipsticks. It's a small extra step that's worth it.

Absolutely....P+P Lip is magic!

I tried the highlighter on my face. It's more shimmery than I expected from swatching it. I'd say the shimmer is reminiscent of one of the more sparkly MAC MSFs. I could see that some people might not like it for a daytime look. But it's no chunky discoball glitter, it's still very wearable. Also it may vary depending on what kind of brush you use, I will play around and try different ones.

The pink sheen in it is what makes this powder unique. love.gif

Don't be scared. I took out all 4 teeth, not at the same time, and I survived! You feel sore for a while and can't open your jaw wide, so take fluids or semi-solid food.

Glad to hear the powder's working for you.

 

And best of luck with your dentist appointment. The dentist's office was pretty much my second home for three years back in uni so I understand your apprehension. It will be over before you know it flower.gif
