thats good to hear because thats how i was planning to use the white one! =)

Dolly pink liner is lighter and doesn't have any purple in it

I'm glad your goodies made you feel a little better, when I got into makeup it was because it made me feel good and not to mention a little prettier than the normal pretty.gif loll

Yea we see his dr on fri and then ophthalmologist after so hopefully it's ok, as a parent you just want everything to be fine so I guess just hearing the he might not be able to do this or that is what's been bothering me, of course I will never tell him he can't do something I'll tell him he can do what his heart wants to do : )......yea makeup def boosts my little ego lol

geeko, I love your look! It's very bright and colorful.

There seems to be several different iterations of the gift wrap.  It will be interesting to see what they send.

I'm tempted to buy more stuff from this collection since I'm skipping Taste Temptations and Strength. OH THE HORROR! 

Maybe you can get your upgrade the day before.  Sometimes they're a little flexible and make exceptions if not to far in advance of your upgrade date.  I hope you like the 5.

Thank you for sharing the looks, girls! You guys are all so beautiful inside and outside!

This place (Specktra) is one happy place. It makes me smile. specktra_rocks.gif

I LOVE the colors in it.

 

The gloss is not too unique, but is a soft light/medium peachy rosy pink.

Heart to Heart lipstick - AMAZINGLY Beautiful on!!! Its such a pretty Reddened Watermelon Pink color. Its not really like Watch Me Simmer. WMS is more Coral/Orange. It also made my lips look very full & plump.

Divine Desire blush - OMGosh its such a beautiful soft blue based pink blush with the prettiest soft subtle pearl sheen. Very skin glowing/softening/enhancing.

Purple Dash liner - The color is very pretty and I really like it too & did not find it to be rough/dry when lining as T said. It went on smoothly & is a lovely more Purple Aubergine instead of a Burgundy based Aubergine

The brush is just ok.

 

For me, the lipstick & blush are so pretty that it was worth it.

I was wondering how you like the Divine Desire Pink set. I'm glad you love the lipstick and blush. Any chance we will see your pink set? I always love your pictures. greengrin.gif Happy Belated Birthday, elegant! Sorry I'm way behind. Hope it was lovely and fun! happybirthday.gif Mine will be tomorrow. Yay for November babies!

There are fireworks from the bridge in London right? We went to Paris one year and stood in from of the eiffeltower and then nothing what a dissapointment:p

iagree.gif CartoonChic you are spot on, and such a positive influence.  Love your sweet spirit.  Pinkdollface, this is so true.  I hope the decision comes easy for you.  All the best!

I've worn mine too & like it a lot.  I didn't have any issues with thickness...normal consistency & applies well w/a base coat.

Hopefully I can find them at a CCO or they'll be repromoted.

It's probably more substantial then necessary since I'm not a Pro & I don't do anyone else's makeup.  I try to circulate usage but there are some that I just like using more than others.

Which brushes are you looking for?

  Love your ornaments!  Sounds like a great Christmas Eve gathering.

Tink tree, Juicy tree, and family tree. Sorry for the OT pics but had to share since we are talking about christmas!! Its my favorite time of year, my family and I are usually together for Christmas eve, since most of us work on holidays ( mom and bro at hospital and me at hotel). Its a good thing I only have to buy presents for my two brothers, everyone else is done!! So hopefully I get all the MAC i want =)

post #6646 of 7768

Very becoming color on you...totally ignoring your comment because it's so not true.  You look lovely!

She said the word "paper," so I'm thinking it's regular gift wrap. I was hoping for a bag.

I get my Paramour Pink Face Kit next week and I hope I like it as much.  Reading your description made me glad that I ordered it...confirmed that I made a good choice  girlhaha.gif

I was a tad concerned because I ordered it w/o having seen it in person.  I find that the 129 brush that comes with these kits (I have the Sinfully Chic Face kit) is not as dense as the permanent 129 SH, but for me they're ok for on the go touchups & travel.

Ahhh ... I've been taking on extra shifts at work just to fund my huge hauling of this collection! blink.gif

 

I have to wait another 2 weeks to get all my stuff cos' I bought it through a parcel forwarding company, oh well! building the excitement!

 

I actually caved and got the Divine Desire pink paramour kit after elegant-one's rave review! heart.gif

 

And after I saw this girl's review on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2timvWMhRk  she's wearing all the products from the kit and they look SO CUTE on her (she's gorgeous though, so anything would look good on her! lol)

post #6654 of 7768

Funny you mention taking on extra shifts - I was just thinking about taking on a second job after seeing that my local Macy's is hiring holiday workers.  Getting a store discount plus building a rainy day makeup fund is a little tempting.

He sounds like a keeper!  I may cave and get the set, but I have a feeling I will wait and get at my CCO, as all the CMP end up there eventually...

Egad, I am trying so hard to skip the brush sets. 

Anybody try layering ETG over a good black polish to see if the problem with opacity is worked out?  Don't we mainly want it for the glitters???

Yes, I did. I used a black YSL polish and one layer of ETG over it and sealed it with Essie's Good to Go. Did my nails on Monday, today I see a little bit tipwear, but it's ok, especially because I do a lot of housework at the moment! Bottom line: it's a really pretty manicure and I'm glad I got ETG, but I think I wouldn't wear it on its own due to the gloopy texture.

I didn't have any problems with the opacity of ETG. I just did base coat, two layers of ETG and two layers top coat.(I like to do two for glitter polish). Ow and I have longer nails, so they obviously need more polish than short nails and it was still fine if I just wiped off one side of the brush.

I'm still waiting for MAC to ship my stuff  angry.gif

 

Since monday it's ready to ship. They already sent me the tracking number but still no progress. it's still at MAC.

 

I already sent them an email asking why it takes so long but I didn't get a good anwer. Just that I ordered on a weekend and that's why it takes so long.

That's not a satisfying answer rants.gif It's already Thursday!

post #6659 of 7768

Don't be too concerned, my BR stuff took ten days to arrive. It's just the normal wonderful service we can from the German OS!

Wow they are really slow! it was the first time I ordered through the MAC site.

 

Did you also get the tracking number and then had to wait so long?
