I'm sure that he will still be fantastic in everything he does! Colour blindness really doesn't have to hold a person back :)

I don't think it'll hold him back either : ) if anything he's always the first one to notice when I color my hair or do anything different to myself. And always compliments me when I do my makeup

Aw that's great!  My bf is colour blind, other than the fact he wanted to be an electrician, it hasn't stopped him doing anything.  Clever kid thinking of reading the crayons/markers first though!  :)

Thanks! I was going to check my CCO too. But it usually doesn't have a lot of great stuff.

I think being color blind means that you can't see all of the colors in the spectrum. You can still see some of them. I had a friend in art school who was color blind. I think he had trouble seeing the color green or red. Can't remember. He was able to see color value really well and took beautiful black and white photographs.

@hwdsprincess:

My daughter is nearly blind. One eye has 1% vision, the other less. It is amazing what she can do with that poor vision. People come up to me all the time in awe of what they see her doing. How she's running about, doing things all the other kids are doing. Your son sounds like a smart kid. It might seem depressing now, but have confidence that he will find ways to cope with his colour blindness. It will not affect his happiness. Have faith th_cheerup.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.

 

 

Yes the Paramour Pink set was the best out of all the kits. You know it's love when I keep the Heart to Heart lipstick and Warm Embrace Lipglass with me at all times in my purse.

 

The Divine Desire blush is just dainty! I shy away from frost blushes in general but it a nice sateen finish to it and works well being cool tone but slightly neutral tone for any look for shin tone.

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

 Pursue your happiness. If make up makes you happy, why not do something with that? Being happy with what you do for a living is very important...

Thanks for the positive words:) That's also what I try to explain my parents now, but they don't really get how important and how happy makeup makes me. Luckily other people do see it and I'm sure that one day I can make them understand when I'm doing what I want to do!

aww, those are the things that make me happy, the things they can overcome, it's like my daughter she was born a premie at 29 weeks and they said she might not make it, she made, they said she might be slower than other kids, she's one of the smartest w honor roll and student of the year, she's def done everything they said she couldn't or wouldn't be able to do because of being born early, and my son well they said he had add and well i still don't think he does only sometimes but he's one of the smartest in his class as well, and his color blindess at first bummed me out but it honestly could be worse and as long as he's the happy child he is i'm happy, i didn't show i was worried or else it might rub off but i always ensourage my kids to try their best at everything and i'm happy to say i'm a proud mom and couldn't be more happier than what my kids have accomplished in school and in anything they do and will always continue to be proud of them no matter what someone says they can't do. Thanks for sharing with me I feel a lot better, happy to hear your daughter as well continues to be a happy child. flower.gif

 

Thanks specktra girls and guys I love you all and am thankful i became a part of this loving community that i can say are my makeup loving family, and we're very supportive when it comes to other issuesgrouphug2.gif

YOu are tempting me.   I need something to boost my mood this week.  My house was broken into on Monday.  Took my laptop, camera, and 3 Tiffany bracelets. 

 

I finally tried my goodies.  Was trying to wait to take pics of them, but oh well. LOL 
I wore RTP, ANF, and SM today.  I put ANF on my lids, and it is  a really pretty color.  I wasn't going to get it.  RTP is gorgeous, (puton the outside crease), but it reminds me of the purple in the shop/drop quad, and Stolen Moment is lovely, I put it in my inner crease.  My only issue, is I hate when I wear ANY shade of purple how it makes everything I wear look like a purple and pink combo.  Right now ANF is showing up pink.

I'm sorry :( Someone broke into our garage at home last weekend and stole over £3000 worth of bikes and stuff. It makes me so sad that people could do stuff like that!

 My daughter is content. She is not materialistic like a lot of other kids. She is happy with the little things in life. She is one of the smartest kids in class, learning braille (and yes, also "normal" text, be it with her nose stuck against the paper). That is what is most important: that they are happy. The only thing that can get you / them down is saying what they can't do instead of all the wonderful things they can do.

OMG, that sucks.  I really have no tolerance for thieves.  My purse was stolen about two years, with my car keys in them. Within an hour they had already used my debit card.  I had to have someone take me home, and at the time I was probably an hour away from where my car was.  Such a huge inconvenience.  My coworker had her car stolen over the weekend.  I guess it's that time of year when ppl get antsy.

No and it is my fault.  The home was supposed to be temporary so I procrastinated getting it.  I really just want my data back from the laptop and camera.

 By the way, my children were not born prematurely, but I am convinced that premature children are born fighters that will get there no matter what...

post #6712 of 7768

Geez, no one is having any luck lately!

 

Thankfully the most expensive thing in my house is probably the beds/tvs and then my laptop and make-up collection or my Mom's ornaments.  Pretty bad really, but we just don't have the money for expensive things so unless someone wants to come in and steal my make-up, I'm not worrying, lol.

I think as a parent we teach them to appreciate the little things in life and not the materialistic things. I love reading my daughters journals saying she had the best day ever because she got to ride the front seat of the car for her birthday or my son telling his friends he had a good weekend carving pumpkins. the only thing my daughter asked for was a lipstick lol i told her in a few years other than that they rather spend their time outside riding bikes or playing w chalk in the patio we have toys but those get ignored so easier for me i got lucky with kids that just enjoy life and each others company.

 

awww that's cute she tries, so happy for her and you it's def one of the best feelings in the world to be a parent of a happy child lol i'm getting teary eyed just thinking of my babies, great job MACerette I admire you, you're a great mom

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

Both are great brushes; 179 is the angled split fiber blending/kabuki & the 167SH is the face blender from Hey Sailor. I just called one of my contacts to see if they had any hanging around, but they don't. Will be on the look out elsewhere for you!

It's awful when they take things that are irreplaceable like photos :(

Also if anyone stole my makeup I would cry like a baby!

Can't say I blame you - I'd trade my TV for those items back too!  I'd be completely lost without my laptop/camera.  I hate moving house because it takes 2-3 weeks for my internet to be re-connected.  No idea how lost and alone I feel without it, lol.

Yup.  My 16yr old brothers has two female friends who like make-up, so I showed my collection.  While I trust them, I found myself still watching them like a hawk to make sure not a thing went missing.  Tis also why I have my inventory on Excel - for insurance purposes.  Most of my stuff is LE, I couldn't afford to replace any of it.  Esp as some of it is impossible to find like Ripe Peach Blush Ombre, etc.  But I would totally cry like a baby.

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)
She did look very pretty..loved the look she created with the kit!
