I found an interview with Liz Goldwyn where she talks about the inspiration behind her collaboration with MAC (the leopard print/lace bags):

Innocence is more nude compared to Cut a Caper..

Out of them all Innocence is my favourite..)) I'm glad I got a back up nanaparty.gif

Btw I love any pastel coral lip gloss over Innocence, so pretty.

 

Wow, Cut a Caper is so much darker than Innocence. That explains why Innocence looks so pasty on me. I didn't bother to do comparison swatches after I tried it on because I instantly knew it was going back. I thought Innocence would be similar to Cut a Caper when I bought it. Cut a Caper is already light on me, but it's wearable. Innocence looks beautiful on you, though.

That's very interesting. Thanks for sharing. No idea the travel bag is based on 1950's underwear. Lol, that sounds funny, but I do like it.

post #6336 of 7768
I absolutely love the small vanity blush it looks good on my skin tone, wish I bought a back up so if any of u want to sell one let me know smiles.gif
Or any dupes anyone can think of that aren't limited edition items?

That is very true. And it is possible to overdo them. They can get pretty messy. That's the only downfall. My Sin-tillation oozes out like someones squeezing it for some reason. I recently stuck my glosses in the fridge. Maybe that would help.
And pinkdollface your skin is flawless too! smiles.gif And I always love to see your looks you post.

I wish Spruced from the green crushed metals set was a regular pigment. It is so freaking pretty! But I already have 3 metal stacks and barely use them. I'm ready for some amazing new regular pigments! They are what made me fall in love with MAC. Them and lipsticks used to be all I bought from MAC for a while. Tartan Tale was the last time we had some awesome pigments come out!

Me too....I have high hopes in Archie`s Girls Collection!!!

Good to know I'm not the only one that has a problem with them when I apply too much.

Thanks so much! I'm glad you like the looks I do smiles.gif

Innocence is so pretty ! I am wearing it today with Chanel Star Dust blush, it's a lovely combination. All Glamour Daze lipsticks are beautiful, no back-up for me ( I never do in fact ) but the 5 lipsticks.

post #6342 of 7768

Well, since today is my wedding anniversary and we took the first steps yesterday in purchasing a house, I broke down and bought the Lavish Rose gloss set. I selected gift wrap too. I hope I get the pretty satin bag when it arrives. I can't wait for my WOG and touch up kit to arrive from Nordies. Anyone have them ship but it say that there is no online tracking info and to call them? So strange. I know Nordies is trust worthy but I want my stuff lol.

 

My final haul once everything arrives:

 

OF l/s

GD l/s

IS l/g

CME f/l

SV blush

WOG EDSF

Touch Up Kit in Medium

Guilty Passions Gloss set in Lavish Rose

 

Of course who know what I might try to get next paycheck lol.

post #6343 of 7768

Love, love, love the look.  duckrodeo, you are stunning!  pretty.gif

I'm so glad I ordered the Neutral Eye Set, even after inadvertently receiving the Warm Set...will probably gift that to someone because my heart was originally set on the Neutral palette.

I used Jaunty e/s on my lid with Quarry e/s in the crease, then I blended Enviable e/s from the Neutral set on top of Jaunty and put Brun e/s in the outer V, Blonde Mink in the inner corner of the eye for a highlight. I tried out Local Wares fluidline for the eyeliner, too. My first time using it, it pulls more green on me. 

 

I'm also wearing Small Vanity blush with Perfect Topping, and the Marilyn bp as a finishing powder eyelove.gif

Well...I also got Evening Grey, Divine Blue, Superb and Whisper of Gilt. Now my total haul is:

All EDES

Both EDSF

ETG polish

All kohl powers (already had feline)

But still I didn't get blushes or lippies so that's good right?

No that's not good Pinkdollface...I think you need at least one of each  girlhaha.gif

Sweet haul!  Nordies online has been very late responding to orders.  I ordered a few things on Friday and just received notice today.  They usually send an immediate confirmation and I didn't even get that.  I was assuming the effects of the storm, etc.  Congrats on your wedding anniversary and good luck acquiring a house!!

Alrighty then! I love that hanging bag and it was quite interesting to hear what inspired its designer & design.

I can't stop thinking about the Brilliantly Cool set.  I'm so drawn to all of the pigments in this set except Moss Green, which I already have.  It appears that at least one pigment in each set is a repromote.  Nevertheless, I like the other 3 pigments in the Brilliantly Cool set enough to purchase the set any way.

Great idea..and super cute!

This collection is killing me. 

 

So far I've hauled: 

A Natural Flirt EDES

Stolen Moment EDES

Ready to Party EDES

Glamourdaze LS

Easy Manner blush

 

I'm almost certainly going back for Whisper of Guilt and the Mineralize brush set. I'm seriously tempted to give OF and Small Vanity another shot too. OF is way brighter than anything I own, but in every swatch I see it is sooo pretty and I feel like I need to try it on my lips before I rule it out for good. I dismissed Small Vanity because it looked way too dark swatched on my hand, but once it sheered out a bit it looked lovely, and I only own like 2 blushes, total.

 

And now I keep looking at more swatches and I am totally wanting the Lavish Rose gloss set, the smokey eye palette and the pink lip bag. Ugh, I'm not sure I can stretch to all that, especially with new collections coming soon. mac_atemywallet.gif

 

On the plus side, I got a couple of compliments on my eye m/u today. I used Earthly all over with Stolen Moment in the crease and outer third, plus UD Rockstar liner. I was told it made my eyes look brighter love.gif Definitely loving Stolen Moment. 

post #6351 of 7768
I really want to get a pigment set but I'm soo not good at using them. I have a ton that I've barely used and I've had them for over 7 years. Maybe I should figure those out before buying more. Haha.
post #6352 of 7768
I've had a bit of a chance to play around with my stuff now. Stolen Moment is lovely! I've used it in the crease (with Phloof on the lid, Smut in the outer corner and Vanilla to highlight) and also on the lid (with Night Manoeuvres in the crease, Black Tied in the outer v and Next To Nothing as a highlight) and both looks were really nice. With the first one I used Dramatic Encounter lipstick with Boys Go Crazy Dazzleglass (from the Lavish Rose set) and that was a great combo too. I still feel like DE was an unnecessary purchase considering I don't wear vampy lips that often, but I'm still a fan. Boys Go Crazy is my new favourite lipgloss - I love it! I've also used Orpheus on my lower lash line a couple of times and I'm very pleased with it. It's gold enough that it doesn't just look like another black, but dark enough to give definition.

I'm yet to try out Mystery or the other lipglasses from Lavish Rose, but I'm really happy with everything so far!

Wow.  That look sounds amazing.  I'm so late to the party in terms of actually using my goods, but I sure will be test driving this and some of the other looks posted.

Thank you! Ya, I hope they are just delayed. I might call them tomorrow anyway tho.

post #6360 of 7768

Thanks everyone for the feedback! cheerleader.gif I wanted to share how awesome I think the neutral palette is!

 

I think the neutral palette was a little neglected in the launch. I think most gravitated toward the Smoky eyes or the Warm eyes, which is exactly why I gravitated toward the Neutral set - the colors were different from what I own.

 

The greens are so gorgeous and versatile, and mixing the teal shade Enviable with Jaunty made a gorgeous olive green color, but still nude and toned down, complimenting my sweater without it looking too matchy-matchy heart.gif

 

I'm pleasantly surprised by Beauty, I wasn't expecting much from it, but it really is a gorgeous lipstick and I can see why it sold out so quickly! I'm glad I picked it up, but I'm sure there will be a restock on the horizon, especially with all this down-time in between collections hitting us in December!
