Wow, that's amazing that she did that for you!

Yes, I tried it and like it. I used the 182 Buffer Brush to apply all over my face. That brush didn't pick up too much product which is great because I think I would've looked ashy otherwise. I first tried it on only half of my face to see the effect. The powder gives me a matte look with a glow and it evens out my skin. It's not a dramatic effect. It's very subtle and pretty.

 

It would still be nice to have a Beauty Powder made specifically for deeper skin tones. I think I made it work for me, but I would like it to work without me trying to make it work. I don't know if that last sentence makes any sense. tong.gif

I'm hoping the mystery powder from Making Pretty will be great for my skin tone.  FM just made my skin look ashy, so I sold it.

I'll say but when you live on a small island like we do, you know who the mac girls are LOL. Every time a new collection comes I'm also one the first people called and we get preference over the tourists so that's a plus

I love FM, BP and use it quite frequently w/o ashiness.  But, I was thinking the same thing about the mystery powder from Making Pretty.

I intend to ask my MAC MUA which one she suggests for me.

That's pretty awesome!  I skipped DA l/s and regretted it.  When I called my favorite MUA at my local MAC store they were sold out, but she immediately said, "you can have my gratis tube because I don't wear red lipstick."  She mailed it to me.  Sweet, I know, right?

Ok I've got both blushes in their boxes and am not sure what to do with them. I am loving Small Vanity from GD so now I don't know if I need to try TPC because it's even lighter. Legendary seems like it would be too ashy/light. I don't want to swatch them if I'm going to gift or sell them. I'm funny like that. Any pics of people close to C7/NC44-5 in these blushes? Do they take work to look flattering?

I wish I would have backed up DA instead of LG lipstick. DA is just perfect on me and makes me feel pretty. Hoping I get the guts soon to try SI.

i don't have any pics of me wearing legendary, but i'm nc44/45 in the summer and it looks really good on me imo...

if you're looking for a blush that looks 'obvious' , then maybe it's not a good one, but i found it gave me a really nice, subtle glow. no ashiness.

Surprisingly, TPC applies darker than what it appears in the compact.  I LOVE it.  This photo from this thread might be helpful;

Ha! I knew I'd seen someone brown in the blush. It looks pretty, but I'm wondering how much was applied. I think I'll just try them someday and if they don't work then my little girls gets even more blush. Right now she has more than I do as I don't vary from my makeup script much. Trying to work on that though. Thanks again ladies.

Best new lip combo:

 

Mac Beet Lip Pencil + Scarlet Ibis Lipstick=the best orangey-pinkish-red lip color. It really brightens the face!

I swore I was getting nothing from this collection and it turns out that Deeply Adored is one of my most worn reds.
