The brushes in the Mineralize holiday brush set are duo fiber, right? I was thinking of picking up that set. Kinda want to wait for it to get to the CCO, but don't really want to wait until next year since I actually NEED some brushes.

And I don't care for the way they don't even show the names of the lipsticks until you click on them, here for example:

In general, I don't think it's an improvement at all. Even the landing page looks confusing and less classy imo.


I agree with you. It's too cluttered and looks disorganized. It's also annoying not showing the color names on the What's New page. I'm also still wondering if Notorious is becoming permanent since it's not designated as Limited Edition?

Yes, they're duo fibre. Mine should arrive today. I was originally going to get them from a CCO as well. I didn't want to risk not getting the Mineralize one since I got it specifically to match the hanging travel bag. I hear the quality of the SE brushes are decent to good, but definitely not as great as the regular MAC brushes. I have full size duo fibre brushes and plan to use the Mineralize set for travel. If you actually need brushes, you may want to invest in the full size brushes over the SE brushes.

Got the duo today & I really like it. The black is a nice soft grey black & I really really like the claire color.

post #995 of 1277

Gosh I can't wait to get my Holiday items. Supposedly they were mailed to me last Monday from the Seattle Nordstrom. On Friday I was told the Counter Manager would call me over the weekend to follow up on my order. It's Tuesday and I haven't heard squat. finger.gif

Received my package today. Yay! It came from Portland so I thought it was Glamourdaze lipstick. Pleasant surprise. I picked up the Quad, Notorious, and Malice n/p. My gift was a patent makeup bag filled with Wild Rose Glossimer (shiny, shimmery rose pink), Chanel No.5 body cream deluxe sample, and LeBlanc Brightening Cream. Wild Rose wasn't super pigmented, just kind of a soft and nice pink. (My lips have brown pigment so YMMV.) It has tiny glitter particles in it so I'm not sure if I'd wear it to work, but I'm sure lots of other people would. It seemed kind of thick going on, but felt like it would last awhile. I took pics real quick before I washed my hair so nothing gorgeous, but here it is:

 

The big box housing the GWP had a big gash in it.

So glad you finally have your order!

post #1004 of 1277

YaY!  It all looks so beautiful.  I am glad that gash didn't go through to your bag icon_eek.gif  You did not like the gloss?  I really liked mine and was kinda ugh a new lemming:  All The Glossimers.  

post #1005 of 1277

elkaknits - I like the gloss, but don't love it so I don't see myself running out to stock up on $30 glosses. I'm not judging it harshly, though, as I slapped it on before getting in the shower just to see how it looked. I'm a bit conservative with my makeup so tend to stay away from glitter; it's just my personal style. I'm sure this gloss is very normal for most other people. I'm weird. Also, I felt like the gloss was thick and goopy, but it had been sitting outside my house in about 40 degree temps so it may apply differently tomorrow after being in a heated house. I'm very happy this gloss was included though so I can try it out. The color is very pretty and subtle. It's my favorite of the free items for sure.

Does anyone know when us poor Europeans can expect to get our grubby paws on this beauty? I saw the polish and quad in shops but I don't recall seeing Notorious.

Amazing swatches as usual Elegant! I much prefer the colour of Claire to Ivoire - it's a subtle difference, but it seems to be a tad more peachy maybe??

post #1011 of 1277

I really prefer the Nuit/Claire, elegant. It's very nice.

Nuit Claire is pretty too, ivory/peach + black in a beautiful duo. The collection is small, I think every product is worth the attention, personally I'll skip this duo but when seeing it today I said to myself why not ? I chose the quad but the duo is nice.

post #1013 of 1277

eyelove.gif.....both duos are soooo beautiful!!!

 

Thank you for the pics and swatches Elegant bouquet.gif

Thanks Gracie heart.gif  No, it's not patchy at all, in fact they are both extremely soft & smooth like butter. I think it looks that way because I rubbed my finger over the top & it powdered amuse.gif Yes, it is more pink/peachy neutral whereas the ivory is more yellow based.

I do too. I think that the Claire color is a bit more wearable/enhancing on the skin.

I used Malice np last night & while I love the color, mine was just a bit tacky. I always have a hard time with reds/darker colors getting on my skin. amuse.gif

AWESOME LOOT!

I ordered Reverie as well but I'd have to wait 2 weeks before getting it as I do not live in the US. Very excited about it! I originally wanted Stardust too but I decided against it as I already had Tweed Pink.

 

 

 

Anyways, I don't buy blushes from our local counters anymore, we also have the euro version. So I order them from Nordie's instead. Such a shame they don't have Notorious!

post #1020 of 1277

Rêverie is pretty, I love Chanel loose powders ! So you didn't order the quad Harmonie du Soir ? To me it's a must-have ( my first non baked eyeshadows from Chanel ). I tried it this very morning, just as subtle as expected and perfect when wearing a soft blush ( Rose Initiale this morning ) and a bold lipstick ( rather bold L'Heure Bleue from Guerlain ).

Stardust has really nothing in common with Tweed Pink. Stardust is a beige/rosy blush with gold shimmer like a soft rose sable in fact. It's a highlighting blush, Tweed Rose is a very soft regular non baked blush. I highly recommand Star Dust because it's wearable even with gold shimmer in it.

Hope you'll love Rêverie !
