I love this but Ikea doesn't sell the stuff online:(

Thanks for this info! Yeah, I was looking on their website earlier but didn't see anything for a mirror.. I also tried a site called vanitygirl.com I believ. Nice choices but looking for more styles. Well, actually I would like something that can be wall mounted as well as to rest on my dressing table if i choose.. Thanks again :)

I only just got to see the whole collection yesterday and I'm sure you're all getting your things in the mail by now, so no need for me to go on about anything.

 

I just have to say I've finally been won over by these new pearlmattes. So much nicer than Vera or Lilly Land. They're very sheer, but have just enough color to balance out your skin tone and that finish is awesome - it's definitely a finish like the glorious Elude has. Veronica's Blush is like a sheerer, less white/more pink Elude, in fact. The Betty pearlmatte was too deep for me and could only be a blush on my skin tone, but on my MA's ruddy skin, it took away all his redness perfectly and he didn't look like he was wearing a stitch of makeup. 

 

I also broke down and got the Veronica quad because those shadows are pigmented as all get out - one swipe and you are done, no need for a base to bring out the colors. I felt I only had one shadow in my collection that seemed like a dupe to something in the quad, so that made a difference for me too (I don't have too many matte or satin finish shadows, especially not purples). All the colors made my green eyes pop drastically so I fell in love.

 

I couldn't help but fall in love with Betty Bright - I compared it with Force of Love, Toxic Tale and Reel Sexy and it was most comparable to Reel Sexy - it's the pink version of Reel Sexy, I'd say, if I had to sum it up, but a touch less light. It wasn't too dissimilar to Force of Love, though FoL is quite a bit darker and a bit pinker.

 

Boyfriend Stealer is really sheer, but that gives a nice effect, especially when blotted. If you had wished Hot Chocolate had been more purple and less brown, you are going to love Boyfriend Steeler.

 

The bright coral Betty lipgloss is almost an exact match for Force of Love lipglass, without the very subtle shimmer.

 

Ronnie Red is very close to Absolute Power but brighter and a little lighter. It's a color like Love Goddess in that it really shifts from pink to red as the light source changes. It's less pink overall than LG, though. I would have skipped it but it blots down AMAZINGLY. It leaves the smoothest, richest stain you could want out of a blotted red lipstick. The stain was so gorgeous and even and perfect that I bought a tube, even though I have Absolute Power and Love Goddess. If you're trying to budget, you could probably skip it, unless you really love wearing blotted down reds.

 

Mall Madness is a fun color, because of the shimmer. I reserved it, but I may wind up passing on it. I don't really need any more pink glosses….that shimmer is lovely, though.

 

The pigments have me on the fence - they're kind of dry and very fine, so even more caution that usual is needed to prevent them getting all over your face. You must wear some sort of based under the pale green Betty or you will be a pastel green raccoon in 3 minutes. The dark teal was surprisingly nice and the teal showed up very clearly, but it looked better under the eye than all over the lid, where it was much harder to coax out the richness of the color. I do think the pastel pink Betty one is the winner of them all because it will be really great on the lips under gloss to add shimmer or pressed on top of pale pink lipsticks for an unusual texture effect, as well as used on the cheeks and eyes - it's the most multi-purpose.

Thank you so much for anther helpful review, liba! bouquet.gif

Now, I want Veronica's Blush pearlmatte, Veronica quad, and Betty Bright. (I've already ordered Ronnie Red. Specktra made me a red lipstick addict!) greengrin.gif

 

Did you have a chance to see the blushes? Any thoughts? amuse.gif

The only thing saving me is that I don't know how it does on my skintone  hmm.gif

OK so I ordered this one from Sephora weeks ago and they messed up my order sending me a pressed instead of loose.  I went last weekend to exchange it but they did not have the loose yet so I walked out without it BUT while there the MUA was raving about it {they have a floor sample of the loose but none either pressed or loose for sale} because she said 

 

FINALLY she has something good to put on WOC.  Now I am NW 15 so cannot speak from experience but I am going to assume, since it is translucent, that it would work on most peeps

http://www.temptalia.com/mac-strawberry-malt-lipglass-review-photos-swatches-archies-girls Screw it, I'm adding this one back to my list. It's a lot pinker than it looks in the tube, and I don't have any dark pink glosses.

DLG on lips over NYX "Deep purple liner" and MAC "Embrace me" l/l.

Prom princess and taupe shape on cheeks. Chanel fantasme over some MAC e/s ( kid, quarry, jete, nylon) and from the Spoiled Rich Quad:  "spoiled rich" e/s bottom lid, and "gravel" in the crease.

I don't want to pay those prices either!  One of these days I'll have myself a vanity.

Really nice, did you get all your parts from one place? 

post #8153 of 12101

I am doomed. I ordered DLG, RR and BB. All the glosses and blushes online. I finally stopped by the mall today and tried on RR and o.m.g. The texture is great and not drying at all. It pulled more like Love goddess than AP or CIS on me. I ordered a BU and the black eyeliner and the Veronica Pearlmatte powder.... I am supposed to be saving too :(

Did you buy a loose powder or a compact? Thank you so much for sharing the info, otherwise I would not know. Bad for my wallet though. lol.giffriends.gif

749 bux for a table set? Ye gods, I thought I was crazy in buying a computer desk from Office De(s)pot and misappropriating it as my makeup center. Should I turn in my glamour card?

So While waiting for this to reach Nordies I dropped Sunny Sunday Quad from the list after seeing Temptalia's review ^^" I knew I had similar shades but I wanted the packaging but well.. the beauty powders packaging will do it

 

I hope it wont reach  Nordies while I am in a meeting or something :( (Different Time Zones!)

Is the quad called Sunny Sunday in Bahrain? It's Caramel Sundae in North America and Europe.
