I must say that Beauty l/s surprised me in a really positive way. I was so sure about skipping it because i thought it would look hideous on me, but when trying it in the store today i just fell in love with it eyelove.gif  I'm very happy with everything i got, for me this is one of the best collections that i've seen this year smiles.gif

AMAZING haul! I'm glad you like everything, I really love this collection too! I much prefer it to Glitter and Ice last year

It's hard to limit urself when u are @ the MAC counter XD ...the only way to limit urself is to stay away from Specktra n the MAC counter... greengrin.gif dat is if u can ever discipline urself to do that. I know i cannot do that for sure ...hehhez...

I actually want all of the damn EDES as they're so lovely, but I am trying to limit myself (like that ever works!)

     i dont mind the sticky part but i do like them to be pigmented or really unique. i only have 8. 

     knockout, tour de fabulous, force of love, styled pack, and flight of fancy which are all really pigmented

     talk softly to me and cut loose which are unique to me, i want to add the rainbow one to this category.

     and lady gaga 1 which i found at the cco.

While I was at the counter at Macy's, I saw that they had one GD lippie left and two WOGs, so I grabbed them in case anyone is still looking for those.  They also had a bunch of Superb left, around 10-12.  

post #6187 of 7768

Ughhh...when are they gonna do a restock??  There is still more I want! =(

post #6188 of 7768

Some people have said World of Gilt isn't showing up. I've noticed that sometimes you cannot see it, but it's really there. It depends on lighting and angle.

 

I've used mine. I don't have a big ol' swath of gold across my cheeks. Rather, there's a golden shimmer when the light hits it just right.

 

See if it shows in daylight, get a friend to make an honest judgment, something like that. Often other people can see stuff better than we can ourselves.

I also picked up a Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold, I can't wait to use it under ANF :)

 

Your swag looks fabulous!

 

Is Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold a special limited edition? I haven't seen it anywhere and haven't seen any ads for it...

oh no! at least they still serve a nobel purpose. i was thinking i might go looking in a regular store for them than buying online, so maybe i'll bring along a lipstick.

post #6193 of 7768

This is me wearing mac outrageously fun lipstick :)

it's funny how the lipstick match the glasses that we have today at sephora for the benefit event :)

Oh no! That's not good. Mine fit fine, but they're not terribly secure. In a drawer they do just fine, but if I decide to move, some lipsticks will fall out.

I'm headed to the mall tonite so I'll let you know. the 31 days was a challenge, a YES, I was itching to throw some red, plum, blue, ANYTHING on but I stuck to it. On Nov. 1st I had a bunch of lipsticks pulled out so that I could decide what to wear and guess what, I almost chose a pink but I went with Eden Rouge! Thanks for the feedback and I'll keep you updated on dupe.

 

No worries!  I looked up pics of Stiletto and it definitely looks more purple than OF...at least in the tube.  They always look a bit different when you actually put them on though!  I ended up not getting I'm The One blush in favor of getting OF l/s, haha.  And I don't regret that decision at all!  Kudos to you for sticking with the pink lippies all of October, and enjoy playing with a bigger variety of colors this month!!  Eden Rouge is a beautiful way to start  smiles.gif

post #6197 of 7768

I went to the mall yesterday to look at the Glamourdaze collection at the MAC store.  The store was crazy full and all of the lipsticks were sold out, but they had everything else left.  They have a lot of the kits except for the ones from Guilty Passions.  I really liked the Paramour Pink and Luxurious Pink kits, but that Purple Dash liner from the PP kit and the leopard bag from the LP kit were total deal breakers for me.  I swatched the EDES and they are really pigmented!  I really liked Evening Grey, Ready to Party, Divine Blue, Stolen Moment, and Tall Dark and Handsome. 

 

The Macy's MAC store had everything, including all of the lipsticks.  I swatched them all and to my surprise, I really liked how Beauty looked on me.  It's a lovely pale pink that didn't wash me out.  It's also very creamy glaze and reminded me of Hue (a fav. of mine) in that aspect.  Innocence looked really nice and wasn't a hot frosty mess like I was expecting, but the frost finish felt a bit off for me.  Idk, it felt a little flaky and uneven.  Are frost lipsticks supposed to be like that?  I don't know if I should give it a chance since I don't own any frost lipsticks and Innocence is the first frost lipstick that I ever tried on, but I really liked the color.  Outrageously Fun looked a bit more magenta than purple on me, but I didn't find the color unique to buy it instantly.  It's still a pretty color for anytime.  Glamourdaze looked really nice, but I think other people can pull it off better.  Dramatic Encounter pulled a bit red on me, but I'm still shy going out wearing that kind of dramatic color so it was a pass for me.  :S  I didn't swatch the fluidlines, EDS, blushes, and the nail polishes.  Out of the lipglasses, I liked Talk Softly to Me and from the eye pencils, Feline.

 

The only item I've bought so far is Beauty lp, but I'll buy Talk Softly to Me and Feline kohl power eye liner later on.  Maybe I'll give Innocence, Dramatic Encounter, and Outrageously Fun a second chance.

I thought I had limited myself as well but I just realized there is only one I didn't get - Round Midnight.  And now I want it.

so proud of myself, went into nordies today and only bought the 2 for 1 mascara!!!!   

post #6200 of 7768

Popping in to say all I ended up with from this collection was Small Vanity. Haven't tried it yet as I don't feel like wearing any makeup at the moment. I'm not feeling well, I have horrible toothache, or rather it's my jaw and whole side of my face which are hurting terribly. Ughh. Went to the dentist twice, but it's only getting worse. They don't seem to know what's going on. I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled, but I don't think that's what's causing that much pain. Having another appointment on Tuesday, wish me luck everyone. Hope everyone is doing well. Don't really feel like posting much ATM.

hope you feel better soon/they figure out the problem! before i had to get my wisdom teeth out, i use to get terrible headaches....unlike any other i ever had before, or ever since!

 

i wore orpheus today all over my lid...it's such a nice pencil for a smokey eye...i kind of layered it more on the outside of the lid, so it gave off more of the black undertone, and left the inner corner more sheer....i wish my lids were less oily, i would have preferred not to have had to set it with another powder shadow!

post #6204 of 7768
So I got to snatch Beauty at Nordstrom this evening. It was the last one! I quickly tried it on me (without Lip Erase or lip pencil) and it looks too light on me.. I'm a bit bummed because it is a beautiful light pink. Anyone else have any recommendations how to make this color work? I have NC 30-35 complexion. Thanks!
post #6205 of 7768
  so i ordered diorshow mascara in black and azure blue, and diorshow extase plum mascara. the black one was free.  thank you prettypackages!!

Thank you.

I know I wanted so much from GD, kinda embarassing that I just got one blush after all. Everything looks great, but I got really annoyed with the increased prices (we just had another increase 2 days ago) and couldn't get myself to buy the EDES. I'm happy with just the blush. I also ordered Mehr l/s and Charcoal Brown e/s. And finally splurged on the NARS e/s base. I think I'll buy less MAC in the future, the prices are getting ridiculous. Considering I only got 2 itmes from MM and just one from GD, I'm doing pretty good I guess. Trying not to buy anythig until Apres Chic now.
