(cue Elvis voice) Thank you, thank you verrah much. (end Elvis voice)

I don't mind looking like a crazy old ladytease.gifbecause, well, i kinda am one.cutey.gifcurtsey.gif

I just don't want to look like a cross between a bag lady and Bozo the clown. One reason i don't wear red lipstick...

 

I've got NARS Bouthan (French spelling for the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan) eyeshadow duo on my wish list. Since i'm pretty much skipping Archie, i'm gonna go for Bouthan. It's funny because clothing-wise i generally avoid pink, but i'm all over pink eyeshadow, or, rather, it's all over me, err, my eyes.

when i saw the promo pics for the iris apfel collection, i decided i totally aspire to looking like her in my future years.

 

my bouthan duo is on its way to me...so looking forward to it, but just worried that customs is going to whack some kind of crazy fine on me.....i don't know why, but i really didn't think about it when i purchased my stuff online...

Yes. The first message for this thread is a recap of the collection. ;)

I feel the same way. I notice that if something is not LE, I tend to wait longer to get it. I don't like that because sometimes I feel like I wait too long and will end up not going back to get it. I'm trying to do a better job of buying both a mix of LE and permanent items when a collection launches instead of only LE.

For that, the beautydepartment has a good tutorial: http://thebeautydepartment.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/thebeautydepartment.com-powder-puff.jpg

 

I still use a fluffy brush for my finishing powders. winks.gif

Now here is the weird thing.  I think of powder as make-up looking since it is another layer.  There have been many a year when I either wore nothing on my face except for powder  t-zone and a bit of blush or tinted moisturizer and blush... rarely the two, foundation & powder, together.  I have just started wearing both and I do the concealer, foundation as needed and powder everywhere to help create a cohesive whole.  No clue if that is 'right' but it is where I currently am at.  Eh even if it isn't 'right' it is what works for me.  Enjoy the makeup that is my philosophy.


Thanks for the tips!

 

That's a great philosophy to have, elkaknits. I haven't ventured into foundation yet, but I still want to play around with the powder.

Yup, I've noticed that. I'm definitely going to have to try these. Not sure whether I should go for the use or pressed variety. I like how Cafe Makeup described it as being like Photoshop for real life. Lol. What we've all been looking for.

I hope that some sense of taste will keep me from "Baggo the Clown" territory, but one never knows. Personally, I find that pink shadows are really flattering on me. Rather than making me look tired or ill (well, most of the time), I find that they wake my eyes up a little. I just make sure that I have some kind of liner on for definition. Of the two duos, Bouthan is the one that I'm likely to get the most use from.

EngineerBarbie - so nice to see you here again! And congrats on the weight loss :) You look amazing!!

 

Elegant - Persia swatches look awesome! I may have missed it, but did you mention how it compares to MAC Saffron (LE)?

 

Well Persia better work on me or I'd be mad. If you call something Persia it better look great on Persians....though we're such a wide variety of skintones that I guess it'd be hard to do

post #560 of 655

Not that ya'll didn't believe me, but I was buying some Brush Guards and this is where I saw about the EVOO. Phooey!

No, you didn't miss that. I don't have Saffron. I'm sure it will be lovely on your skintone! No doubts. I really like how it can be worn very pigmented, or washed & it still remains the same lovely tone of color, just softer. It plays well with other colors too.

post #562 of 655

i received my seduction, bouthan and mad mad world today! i am going to playyyyyyy tomorrow! yay!

 

i'm very happy to see that it doesn't look like i have any other shades like seduction. but bouthan i'm a little scared it's going to be ashy...fingers crossed.

post #563 of 655

i think im gonna hold off on gettin seduction ESP since its perm!! it'll be great to add to cart for NEXT fall. but i WILL grab persia!!

I saw this same video when I bought the same brush guards. I haven't tried adding olive oil. I've been hesitant to do so, but I'm not entirely sure why. We never did it in any of my painting classes.

I wore Seduction and it pulls more plum/magenta on me. Not necessarily red, but not as purple either. It's more of a berry shade. I would love for NARS to come out with more purple/violet blushes. Sin is the only purple one that I think of from their line.

Sin pulls more like a burnt pink on me than violet, though most things pull pink on me; must be my undertone. It has a night candlelit pink glow to it. A violet blush would be awesome and I think it would look great on you. Not so sure if I could pull it off though hehe.

 

Patiently waiting for this collection to hit counters in Canada. It'd be the splurge of 2013 for me :D

that describes pretty aptly what it looks like on me too.

i wore it today...i kinda did a version of the look in the promo video except with magnetism lipstick by illamasqua since i didn't get dressed to kill....oh and with brown skin of course!

i was pleasantly surprised that bouthan (which looked ashy on my arm) did not apply ashy on my lids. yay!

post #568 of 655

I went to a counter today and my MUA said it's better for me to skip the collection.

I was thinking of getting Seduction, but he didn't recommend.:S
