Did Orpheus last long all over the lid?  I would love to try that with Mystery, but these kohls are a bit greasy so I am imagining that would smear all over on my lids.  Sounds pretty!  (and now I want Orpheus and Raven too)

Why does this not surprise me?

I'm trying to kill my lemming for WOG and IS l/g and therefore I used Too Chic b/p as a highlight and Bubble Lounge lipgelee on my lips. Also I used Legendary as a blush.

I was never really into using pencils to line my eyes, but thanks to the MUA that did my makeup I want to do that more often.

You look gorgeous!  (and now I am plotting another order to include Orpheus, ANF and TDF)  I thought I was done with this collection...

I wore ANF as a highlighter on the top of my cheekbones today and it was gorgeous! I LOVE this e/s so much I am considering getting a second backup, but the price is scaring me!

lol...i set it with the lady grey quad actually.  it wouldn't stay long on my greasy lids, but it looked so pretty....i might try setting it next time with one of the new sheer prolongwear shadows or a pressed pigment.

Thank you! Unfortunately it was LE with Cham-pale, but it's just a really shimmery gloss. I think if you want a similar effect you could get the IS l/g from this collection.

All of the pigment sets are really pretty, I guess it just depends on which colours you like the most! The green one was gorgeous, the pink and gold one was really wearable and neutral, the one of the MAs was wearing the purple set when I was there yesterday and it was very smoky and sexy!

im not getting the sets cause they always end up at the cco. and then i dont even get them at the cco. th_crazy2.gif

I may have to pick that bad boy up! It looks so incredibly pretty. Is there a big difference in texture/formulation between lipglasses and lipgelees? I have a few lipglasses but zero lipgelees to compare them to.

I also got Everything that Glitters polish and the EDES in RTP, Stolen Moment, TDH and ANT. I thought ANF would be like Naked Lunch or something, but it's really not. It has a noticeable pink sheen which looked super pretty! I called my counter about 10 minutes ago to put Stylishly Merry and RM on hold. I couldn't get them out of my head. I was really impressed with the pigmentation and smooth texture of the shadows (I didn't get them the first round). I expected to love DB as well, but I'm still not so sure about it.

I had an appointment yesterday to get my makeup done that that was one of the reasons I decided to add Stylishly Merry and RM to my haul. Unfortunately it rained pretty bad when I went home on my bicycle so I don't have pictures of the makeup the MUA did. I loved the eyelook she did and I also liked that she used RTP EDES as a highlight on my cheeks, because the effect was really nice. The eyelook she did was FE fluidline on my lids as a base then RTP over it (I will use Let's Skate paint pot as a base myself), she used Stolen Moment on the inner and outer corners of my eye and it gave a really nice dimensional look to my eyes. In the crease she put RM and blended it with Stylishly Merry and RTP. ANF was used as a highlight. She then lined my upper lash line with feline and smudged it. On my lower lash line she applied Mystery and smudged it with DB EDES.

The eyelook was super nice and I loved the contrast between the pinky colours on the upper lid and the blue/green colours on the lower lash line.

On my cheeks she applied Easy Manner or Small Vanity I can't remember exactly and she first highlighted with RTP EDES and then put WOG over it.

For lips she first did a combination of Beet l/l only to line and then blended it, then Innoscence l/s and topped it off with Pink Fade l/g. It was a pretty and interesting combination, but I didn't care for it in combination with the eye personally so she took it off and just did IS l/g. I liked the IS l/g a lot, but I don't want to buy more lipgloss right now. I really liked how she listened to me during the appointment, but of course I have known her for quite some time. She is also the manager from that specific counter. We also have a new girl at the counter, well she's not really new, but first she only worked there as a freelancer I believe and now she works there full time I think and I'm so glad they chose her to join the team! She also complimented on the makeup that was done and said it looked really good on me. There was also a third girl working that I knew and she like the makeup too. She also informed me during the appointment when they had only one ANF left and asked if I wanted it and of course I had to have it:p

How awesome!  Sounds like a great session.  The look sounds really pretty. Glad you were pleased with the outcome, as well as your haul!   pretty.gif

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.

 

Oh no!!  I hate when unhappy things happen to happy people.  I hope it turns out to be the wisdom teeth after all so that once they're pulled, you'll feel better!  th_cheerup.gif

Very Pretty!!! I snagged a couple of the pencils and will now definitely put them to use.

I have the Mineralize brush set, my third of these particular brushes and I love them.  The are not of the same quality as the full size brushes, but for me they have been sturdy (I use & wash the 187 & 130 everyday) and they get the job done.  I enjoy them for travel.  I have no experience with the green brush set.

 I got a little bit of dirt on mine and I just used a damp cloth to wipe it away and had no problem. Scotch guard it maybe????  if your really worried about it? Im not sure if you would want to do that though because of the eyeshadows/ chemicals inside etc.

post #6294 of 7768

I don't believe MAC Australia.

 

The Glamourdaze collection is due to be released today, but it is still not up on the MAC Australia website!

 

I'll pop down to my local MAC counterlater today, and see if it is instore yet.

 

MAC Australia, you're hopeless! And no, it's not "increasing buzz", it's increasing overseas purchases!

 I want the warm and smoky sets but have been putting them off because I have been ignoring the pigments I already have lately although I love them all.  I'm also afraid dreamy little thing is the same as roselight and I already have roselight

I just bought my bu of innocence l/s and Wordly Wealth blush from style seeker collection. I'm glad I finally got around getting it. Now I understand how it feels when you need a back up lol

I like the idea of Scotch guarding it! th_thdeadea.gif I never thought of that.  I am also planning on keeping the clutch in one of the gift bags...like a dust cover.  Someone else mentioned this and I thought it was a fabulous idea...but I need to wait a few more days until I tire of looking at how pretty it is on my vanity! I probably will just take the products out and keep the clutch stored until I actually have a chance to use it.  It looks like I have decided to keep my Devine Desire kit afterall!yahoo.gif

I was kinda kicking myself for getting Orpheus. I have Powersurge and i didn't compare them, so i was afraid they'd be too similar.

 

Well, they aren't, and i've been wearing Orpheus almost every day this week. I don't wear black liner, and the gold lightens and brightens up the black base in Orpheus just enough, yet it is darker and not as metallic as Powersurge. This is now my "go to" liner... until i fall in love with something from an upcoming collection...
