I'm doing pretty well, but if they still have the l/g sets during Nordie's holiday party, I might have to cave....I can't say no to 10 points per dollar spent! Plus, it's in December, so I wouldn't be breaking my November no-buy hehe. 

Awesome! I got confirmation that Easy Manner is ready for pickup. I'll PM you once I pick the blush and brush up (probably Friday or Saturday) 

Yay!

I tried Small Vanity today, but for some reason didn't like it much on me. Maybe I applied it too heavy, I don't know. I used the 116.

I am sorry to hear that.

Maybe you can try to combine it with Superb or WOG?

Sorry,I can`t remember right now which EDSF you have.

I haven't tried either product yet (they are in the queue lol), but perhaps its simply a case of the colours not going well together? Or like you said in your previous post, you might have applied a tad too much. It's hardly the lightest colour in the world and, if swatches are anything to go by, it is well pigmented.

 

I'll probably err on the side of caution and use my Yachiyo (I feel like a walking Yachiyo ad now) the first time I apply it.

... and in other news I'm wearing Outrageously Fun today and I'm utterly totally completely in love with it! eyelove.gif

 

It looks nothing like Up The Amp on me. It's far brighter but the Cremesheen finish makes it perfect for everyday wear . I used to be an Amplified-and-Matte-only girl but I think I'm being converted lol.gif

They werent contaminated because when i first opened it i used a clean brush and that was the result. I havent even tried touching it with my fingers since i was scared to make it oily

I'll definitely try it with other brushes as well.

I also wanted glam.daze lipstick and a palette with a few regular eyeshadow refills, I wanted it for ages and kept putting it off..but that's my luck that the palette is out of stock :-(

I used 116, and 130. For face brushes have 109, 168, 187, 165, 138, a fan brush from and a bunch of real technique brushes and the nars ita brush (the skinny long one for contouring)

The 130 should work well. Try to brush it on in strokes rather than trying to stipple it on. You need to do some blending with the EDSF's, so keep that in mind.

 

My favorite is still the 128 as I can really paint it on; the paddle shape of this brush helps a lot.

Yea i brush it on not stipple it and it wasnt looking right ssad.gif maybe i should just scrape off a bit to see if there is something wrong with the top layer

Yes i just jammed my brush in there and swirled it and it looks wonderful. I swirled it for a while in one spot so maybe it got in there real good. Thanks!

NO! not at all! I have tried every way I can think of to wear it and  I am just not a fan.

post #7188 of 7768

I used Divine Blue,Stolen Moment and Feminine Edge for a look today.Divine Blue all over the lid,Stolen Moment in the crease and the outer V and Feminine Edge as a liner.Crystal Avalanche in the tear duct and as a highlight under my eyebrows.

Might sound a bit crazy but I really like it!

I tried to pre-order Mischievous n/p in Quite Cute, but it was gone even before it was officially released (and before i knew how unreliable MAC n/p can be - i have a couple that are great and a couple that s**k)

 

So in an attempt to dupe Mischievous i picked up:

-- Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry - 320 Jaded
-- Revlon Nail Polish - 85 Minted
-- essie - turquoise & caicos
-- Nicole by OPI My Lifesaver ( LE - Justin Bieber coll) Please excuse me, i didn't realize it was in the Leave it to Bieber collex until i was checking up details of the polish on-line. There is something so artificial and awkward about him I get uncomfortable watching him.
 
No claims that these are the only dupes, just the ones i picked up. The essie polish is VERY nice.

I've just bought glamourdaze lipstick and coral lip gloss set.. cheerleader.gif

I was tempted by EDES and other gift sets but I decided I don't really need those considering the ammount of make up I already have, and I prefer to have my MAC eyeshadows in a palette, so if they were regular eyeshadow I could have depotted them..)) I'm happy with my second haul from this collection anyways.. I hope I will like glosses eyelove.gif

 

I nearly forgot to change my address since we are moving in our new house tomorrow..))
