Yep. I got the tracking number immediately, and then it stayed at 20% for about nine days. I guess the OS is always really astonished when a collection comes out and a lot of people order in s short time. I mean, it's not like that happens every month... girlhaha.gif

OMG!!! Even packages to US arrive quicker than that.. That's a total joke...I can understand why you guys are reluctant to buy online.. Luckily, here MAC usually delivers within 2-3 days.. otherwise I would be stuck if I couldn't use online service.

I got my Innocence BU, now I am a happy bunny)) Hopefully it will last me a while since I have tons of lipsticks, and I will be keeping an eye on any dupes as well..))

post #6665 of 7768

Innocence does not seem to give any colour to my lips icon_eek.gif, just some glaze (I would not call it a MLBB). It reminds me a bit of Lollipop, without the green cast.

as others have suggested try not to worry to much till you get the doctor's advice.

 

if it's any consolation - i know several men who are colour blind, including my husband, and they are all fully functional!

 

i hope it all works out and you feel better soon!

I just received the nail color in Everything that Glitters. I put on two coats and this color peels off like crazy. Has anyone else's done this, or did I get a bad batch?

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

 

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!

 

 Well Happy Birthday to us! friends.gif heart.gif

 

I am going to go take pics of the set right now ;)

kimibos mentioned something similar somewhere upthread. i haven't got the product myself so i don't know how bad the problem is, but many glitter polishes tend to peel more easily than regular ones anyway. perhaps a sticky base coat would help?

post #6670 of 7768

This nail polish actually peels off in big strips. I couldn't believe it. I showed my husband and he was laughing. I have had nail polish chip, but never peel off in strips. I love the color, so I'm going to try a clear top coat and see if that helps. If not, it's going back to Nordstrom.

hmm. doesn't sound good.

 

perhaps you could also try layering it on a black creme? then it would have something to adhere to (although you might lose some of the depth by doing so)

Divine Desire Pink

 

 

^Accurate color of the blush. The one below is just a tad lighter than what it actually is.

 

post #6675 of 7768

@elegant-one - thank you so much for the swatches!

 

i'm not a fan of the gloss and the pencil, and i'm on the fence about the blush. but the lippie is beautiful! i wish it was sold individually, as i can't justify buying the entire set just for one lippie.

post #6676 of 7768

The l/s and blush are particularly gorgeous! If they were sold individually then I'd get them :(

post #6677 of 7768

The eye pencil is really really pretty on. But yeah, the Lipstick & Blush are gorgeous, especially the lipstick. I don't think I have anything else quite like this lipstick color.

I'm glad to read that you really like your Paramour Pink set amuse.gif I'm really loving it as well, as you already said the lipstick and blush are just gorgeous, and the eye pencil isn't half as bad as T describes.

eyelove.gif.....GORGEOUS!!!

Thank you for the pics and swatches Elegant

Is the 179 the split fiber kabuki from Semi Precious? If so, I have seen it recently at a CCO. I can swing by and see if they still have it this weekend, if you'd like.

The 179 and 167SH. I'm blanking on the others at the moment.

th_cheerup.gif Good luck! I hope you feel better soon. I know it's difficult, but try not to worry until you speak with the doctor.

Thanks for the compliments, ladies!

 

My 2nd order with all my Xmas stuff in it arrived today and I'm not even allowed to look at it!  So depressing.  I want it NOW!  (that made me think of Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka and her Golden Geese)

The owner of a newsletter I worked for a long time ago was colorblind and he was very successful and quite brilliant.  He just never picked the colors of the magazines and he always wore neutral colors.

Lol I don't let my son pick his clothes he's 6 he can do everything else he's really smart but he can't match his clothes. It's just little things for him, i see him already figuring out how to do things, instead of picking the color he reads the crayon or marker to do things right in his work....bigstar.gif but were def not going to let little things come in the way of bigger things that will come his way
