woah! how the heck are you using this? I have used mine every day, as an all over face powder, with no dip yet. Maybe yours is really soft?

This is how my Flower Mist Dew BP looks, it is the only thing I have hit pan on besides my MSF Natural powder which I use almost every day, all over my face.

I can totally see using FM daily it is just so gorgeous and I am not sure what to do when it runs out, do we have an idea for dupes?  I love BP in general and this could be my favorite BP ever.  Until I got FM, Flower Mist Dew was the only face product I ever bought BU for.

I Skipped FM BP because it just looked so boring and dull swatched at the counter. Glad you ladies are enjoying it! I thought it was going to be useless.

post #7895 of 8500

I like FM beauty powder but I'm not loving it to be honest. I use Guerlain Meteorites more every day, and I use FM only sometimes.. I prefer the finish of Meteorites personally.

L'impatiente is on my wishlist, along with Malice! How are you liking them so far? I'd love to know.

 

Here it's even rare to see people with makeup on, so I get your point! hahah

I'm wearing CIS today for the first time and I love it! The blue undertone is very prominent, which makes it different from the other reds in my collection. And the application is to die for. MAC really nailed it with the new Matte formula! thmbup.gif

 

I won't get my PZ, DA and LG until the end of next week, and I can't wait to play with them too.

Same here. I am not a huge fan but I though the idea was cute.... way too cute to resist. I got all the lippies, three blushes and two BP!

OMG! I saw the picture of the dip and it is not that bad. I though you literally had the whole pan exposed jawdrop.gif

I got two only and I am getting kinda nervous of using it every day. I am using mine as finishing powder. Cant do without this now... sigh.

Let me follow through...

 

For me would be CIS -> DA -> LG -> SI

 

I love CIS soooo much I refuse to use it until I get a BU. is that wrong???

Which Meteorites do you use? I might try that one too...

post #7906 of 8500

I really do love FM. I've never had a BP before but I can see why everyone raves about them. I think the product really shines when it's worn all on its own on weekends when I don't bother with foundation. It's subtle but does a great job of evening out my skin tone and imparting the faintest glow. It's the first product I've ever backed up and I suspect I'll be sorry that I only have one in reserve.

 

How often does MAC release BPs, and are they all this good?

 

I use the 178 (natural part) to apply mine.

They usually come out a couple of times per year. Most of them are very subtle, so they are really a universal product - at least for those with light and medium complexions. My favorite is still Elude. It's a very light ivory that is the ultimate BP for NW10-15. It also feature a soft focus technology, but it is more subtle that FM - and thus slightly more elegant than FM.

 

 

I love both (FM and E) as an all-over, though you really run out fast when you use it daily. But there is certainly hope that 2013 will bring more pale BP.

Well, I absolutely LOVE FM and wish I would have purchased a backup. Instead, I'm using it as a "special occasions" powder. Kind of funny considering I almost did not purchase it in the first place! I wore it to my sister's wedding and love how my skin looks in the photos!

I don't know if this is of importance to anyone, but this was an outdoor wedding and it ended up blowing and raining right before the wedding started. Even with the awful weather that day, FM held up nicely.

What a lovely photo!  You both look SO happy... which (of course) adds to the beauty!

In the interest of science (and OCD), I weighed my used FM and a brand new one.

Used is 57g total, new is 59g.

So I've used 2g of the 10g in 1 month, so they should last 5 months! (hypothetically)

I'm such a nerd. girlhaha.gif

Awesome. My guess was four months (based on my experience with Elude).

Christine from Temptalia said L'Impatiente was similar to M.A.C Hang Up except for the finish. I don't fully agree with that, L'Impatiente is somewhat darker and the Chanel velvet finish has really nothing in common with Hang Up finish, so comparing the 2 is not a solution to my mind although Christine's reviews are very very good.

L'Impatiente is a deep colour, very pretty for fall/winter. It's also perfect with Star Dust blush which is very soft and light.

Malice is a gorgeous shade, wearable and sophisticated ( also very different from Holiday 2011 Rouge Carat another very pretty shade I think ).

the finish is just fantastic, all my Chanel polishes wear quite long ( maybe not as long as the Nars or the Essie or OPI ones ), but I very often wear polish on my toes only, on the hands all polishes wear 2-3 days even high end ones.

Everyone wants Malice here, all say it's a really beautiful colour, I fully agree.

Hope this was a bit helpful !

I hope so for Gracie's sake, because she is gonna run out at this rate!  (and I am too, I did not get that many BU)
