Today I've tried it again.. for the day look I wore equilibrium blush as a contour, horizon de chanel blush on cheeks and black liner.. it was really good, nothing odd!
Tonight I've created something else.. always equilibrium, star wonder msf, on the eyes I've used Moth brown on the lid (I know, in my picture you can't see it) vanilla as a highlight, UD blackout in the outer corner and UD perversion eye pencil!

soooo I guess GD it's great with neutral/pinky plum blushes but it wasn't good with warm stuff such as Nars blush Taj mahal or Mufe aqua cream N°9 which is coral...

I still have to try Glamourdaze paired with Whisper of gilt and golden eyeshadows.. in my mind it seems great but I have to test it on my face :P

Beautiful look! Have fun experimenting! amuse.gif

Dear PrettyPackages and Gracie90,

 

I am so sorry to hear about these things happening to you!! it is very sad that the world we live in has caused some people to be so desperate and so desensitized to any needs but their own.  Two years ago when my son was mugged at gunpoint in Baltimore, the police said well this happens at this time of year because people are trying to get money for Christmas. Kind of twisted thinking and shows the wrong feeling at Holidays time.  I empathize. You were the ones who had a loss and then you have to fight with the insurance companies too.

That is a beautiful idea!! sorry, I am 346 posts behind and just catching up now......   Glamourdaze really is very neutral I think and would go with just about anything. But the plum and gold combination would be lovely.

that is always the hardest thing for me with black lashes. I love the look of colored mascaras but have had trouble finding brands/colors that actually show up. BadGal Plum was invisible on me. I like the blues and purples the best. So the Dior was better than YSL colored? Dior Show was better than xtase?

Enjoy the face kit, MACina! rasta.gifI'm so happy for you!

     i like the dior formula more.the blue  one is just perfect to me the diorshow. but the xtase in plum  didnt show up on me. that's why i didnt take a pic. im going to keep it cause i dont like black mascara.

thank you so much for your review!! the dior in plum is the one I have been looking at. Good to know, I will have to look at the dior one. Of course, I am like so many here, probably more makeup than I will ever be able to use (for absolutely sure!!) and yet, such an addict and always looking.....

Let me know if they have Impossibly Sweet left, I'd love to get a back up.

If they have any left, I'll just grab one for you and let you know.

I agree with geeko and aradhana. I would invest in the full size brushes for longevity and better quality. That's been my strategy so far. The travel brushes may last for a while, but they will eventually need to be replaced. You'll end up spending more money to replace them in the long run. The full size brushes have been known to last for many years if properly maintained. The brushes that I have I bought over time and as I needed them. It takes longer to build up my collection this way, but I'm not worried about having to replace the brushes later.

 

I have the Mineralize set, but I haven't used it yet. It's nice and I like it, but I got it specifically for the purpose of traveling. Not for regular, daily use. I have the full size 187, 130 and 286. The SE versions feel different from their full size counterparts. I can't explain it. They don't feel bad or anything, but they don't seem as nice as the full size brushes. The full size 130 is at my CCO.

iagree.gif w/geeko, aradhana & CartoonChic. First building a full-size brush supply and using the SE brushes adjunctively is a much more pragmatic approach to building a brush collection.  I 

wouldn't call it a waste of money, but in terms of full-size versus the SE brushes, you may find that first investing in the full-size brushes is just money well-spent.  I included a few photos of the full sized brushes, SE Mineralize brushes from MAC Illustrated, The Perfectly Plush Mineralize set, and the set, less one brush that I loss from last year's holiday collection.  For me the SE brushes have held up well to daily washing, of course as have the full sized brushes.  

Good luck with your decision!

The Lipsticks..
Outrageously Fun is described as Mid-tone Magenta Violet & it has a Cremesheen finish.. when I first saw it I know I would love it, that's why I ordered a backup.. once I saw it in Real I knew I was right! This is a beautiful purple pink… it shows magenta much more than pink.. the a cute violet color.. I LOVE it, I will try it as soon as possible!
Second lipstick is Glamourdaze which is described as Mid-tone creamy plum & it's also cremesheen.. I am on Nudes/Natural these days! I ordered this & I am happy I did.. pretty color for everyday use (but of course I won't use it daily. It's Limited :D)!
 
 
MAC-GlamourDaze-Lipsticks-Glamourdaze-OutrageouslyFun-2.jpg
 
I got 2 from those minis.. A Natural Flirt  which is described as Soft Peachy Nude.. well! You know I love those shades.. this specifically will work great as a brow, inner corner highlighter or as an all color on the lid.. it's very pigmented & feels very soft. Stolen Moment is described as Dark Taupe.. I Love taupe! & this is a very pretty taupe eyeshadow.. I imagine it will be great when matching with Natural Flirt.. I think I will wear them together tomorrow!.. those eye shadows are really impressive when swathced.. I can understand why people are loving them!

Here are the swatches.. I forgot to take photo for the fluid line! But I swatched it (first from left) I think it's light to be used as an eyeliner! But the color is pretty & suitable to be used as a base
 
MAC-GlamourDaze-Swatches.jpg
 

Now Sets turns! I got 2 as mentioned before..

 

Will start with the Perfectly Plush Mineralize Brush kit, this is one of the 3 sets.. I know mini brushes are machine made & not perform well as full sizes.. but I Love minis & special packaging's! & they're great for traveling & touch ups, I chose the mineralize kit which is a peach purse with 4 brushes: 187SE Duo Fiber Face Brush, 130SE Duo Fiber Brush, 282SE Duo Fiber Shader Brush & 286SE Duo Fiber Tapered Blending Brush. I am most excited to try the 130SE.. I think it will great with MSFs. the big is larger than the brushes.. there's extra space to add few items.. and it's covered with plastic.. yay easy to clean!

Now.. Divine Desire Parmour Pink Set.. Honestly this is the most thing I was excited for.. I really felt bad when I saw it was eseclusive in MAC site only! But a sweet American lady from here helped me & ordered it with her card & paid her in Paypal.. how sweet Is she <3.
 
This set is a beautiful pink clutch.. Love love loooove it.. reminds me of Disney princesses & fairy tales.. It contains 5 items: Divine Desire Blush (Bright Pink Mini Blush), Heart to Heart (Mid-tone yellow pink cremesheen lipstick, Warm Embrace Cool Rosy Pink with Pearl Frost Lipglass, Purple Dash an Intense aubergine Technakohl Liner & 129SE Blush Brush.

The products fit perfectly in the brush bag and it still zips closed!

Great idea...and peace of mind!

The pain is slowly getting better but I still don't feel good. At least I had a couple of hours of sleep last night, first time since almost two weeks that I slept longer than 1 hour or so, yay!

Thank you, Medgal! I went to the CCO today and found the Perfectly Plush set so I decided to pick those up based on your comments on them. I'm really glad I didn't pay $50 for them b/c they are teen tiny and I would have been a bit stunned when they arrived in the mail. I don't care for the handles as they look like some cheapy set from the Dollar Store in 1987, but finances won over and I think they'll serve their intended purpose. I'm generally not a fan of cream products so I don't anticipate these brushes getting daily use. If I do end up liking the idea of them, though, I will just pass these on to my college age daughter since they would be better than anything she currently has.

 

So yeah I get the investing part, but honestly if I don't know how to use items well I hate to tie up so much money in them. Like I said I also ordered 4 NARS brushes yesterday so I'm definitely making an investment there. So excited to get those!

Thank you Elegant and Peachsuns!

 

I can not stop looking at this pretty case blush-anim-cl.gif

 

The lipstick and the blush are definitely to die for eyelove.gif

It's TMJ. I've had it, it's TREMENDOUSLY painful. You can wear a night guard to keep from grinding your teeth and it will eventually go away. Or you can get a mild muscle relaxer if the pain is unbearable. Get well soon. I hate to see you suffer.

Did anyone get the pigments?

 

What's more necessary, the purple smoky set or the neutral set?

 

Mac-guy? Anyone?

 

Swatches?

Why are they not restocking this?  Come on, MAC...I know you have more somewhere!  I think I might be addicted to this collection. =\

 What other things are you after? I still need to pick up RTP, and maybe Warm Thunder from ED rather than the silver mini EDES!
