I'm not caught up on this thread but I need to post my initial thoughts before I forget them. I got my box today.
-Jaunty eyeshadow - haven't swatched yet but it looks like a color I will love. I love all of these neutral taupey colors
-Barefoot eyeshadow - love all golds - someone mentioned henna and I am reminded of it too - I must go dig that one out to compare
-Fleet Fast blush - Love it! Did I need it? No - I have bought so many of these corally pink blushes this season. But it is really pretty.
-Crew highlighter - I'm not caring about the colors so much. I really bought it for highlighter use, not blush so I'm fine with the changing color layers - I just tried this on top of my already made up face and I was just seeing a white color. I did remind me of how Lightscapade was looking on me. I must play around with this more.
-To Catch a Sailor - Oh I should have listened to my Specktra friends and skipped this one. The frost is not bothering me but it is just too light for me. It almost looks white on my lips - ick! I did put
-Blessedly Rich on top of it and I really like the look of them together.
-Riviera Life - I added this one in at the last minute. I just put a bit on my bottom lip and smooshed them together. It looks like a full application. Boy is this orange! I do think Chanel Calypso looks more red than this one. It looks pure orange to me. I really like it though. I may turn into a bright lips girl with this one.
-Emerald Sea power point pencil - I haven't used this yet, just swatched but I had to get it because I have made it my business to own all mac green eye liners
-Au Rose Sun Tint - haven't tried yet
-SunDipped Bronzer - I meant to wait to try this in store but somehow it ended up in my cart. I was really looking for a lighter bronzer to use in winter months. I'm pretty happy with Stila Sun 2 - my favorite and refined golden (second fave) but I find them to be too much when I want to slightly warm up my winter pale skin. I put sundipped under the cheek bones and I can see it but on my temples it looks a little ashy. This might work for winter but definitely not now. I don't know why but it just occurred to me to look for a winter bronzer in winter tirme. Yikes!
167 SH brush - I haven't tried this yet but I really love mini brushes so I had to get it.
I debated whether or not I should post this mini review. I just got the stuff and I already have a full face of makeup on but I know if I wait, it just may not happen. I went shopping yesterday and I'm on product overload. I figured I should post in case it helps someone who is going to the stores on Thursday.
Off to catch up on this thread.
