I've accidentally broken a bunch of makeup, I feel your pain. Everything from my Inglot shadows, La Femme blushes and 3 MAC Pro Longwear Concealers.
post #7412 of 7768

Speaking of (near) makeup catastrophes... I was getting ready this morning and my HC MSF Earthshine went flying out of my hand!!  I was scared to look where it slammed into the ground!  BUT... luckily all that broke was the hinge of the compact!  Product was intact!  LE products really can cause you stress when they get away from you like that!  The mess PLUS the added worry of not being able to track another down! The number 1 reason why I believe in BU's now... I always backup a LE product that I love JUST IN CASE!  Your tile on the other hand... now THAT'S another story!  UGH!  Good Luck ladies...

Whoa! I have all three products. I will have to give this combo a try!

I have a limited number of lip liners, and Pro Longwear Absolutely It is one of them. I really like its shimmer. I've even worn it all over my lips by itself. And once i went out with Absolutely It ("soft burgundy with rose shimmer") around my lips, Just Wonderful lip pencil ("dirty mauve") on most of the rest of my lips, and Whirl lip pencil ("dirty rose") in the center of my lips. (I do have Nightmoth and i love it, too)
 
With UD i haven't found a lip liner color that i like... well, other than Ozone, which is colorless, so it helps stop lip color wandering.

I could not get all that dark pigment out of the grout and tiles.......th_stormy.gif

i once dropped a bottle of rocker nail polish on an off white stone tile bathroom floor....in an apartment i was renting from my professor! i ended up having to use a lot of nail polish remover and a toothbrush to get it out of the grout! i was so sad...especially now it's discontinued too.

 

good luck with the clean up....sounds like a nightmare!

 
 
i was wondering whether anyone who got the green set of pigments had come up with some interesting combos? i bought it at the weekend. so far i've worn a few different looks
-- the lightest shade all over, with the spruce shade in the outer corner and minted and surf usa shadow to line top and bottom.
-- the lightest shade just on lid, club dupe in the outer corner and piney shade on the outer v.
 
did anyone else find these a bit more difficult than regular pigments? i find them kinda chunky, and ended up smooshing them around with my fingertips. i also found my eyes more sensitive to them -- the mua had suggested that she likes to use regular shadows around the lashline when she uses these pigments, due to the larger particle size...

I'm so sorry to hear about that. I've fortunately broken makeup only a couple times in all my years, although i do have a few cracked cases, crazed mirrors (in compacts), and broken hinges. Probably because i rarely put makeup on in the bathroom.

 

But pigment, what a mess! and that blackened stuff... you have my sympathy.

Venting session over.

Total fail! icon_eek.gif

That's the worse...I feel your pain. I once did the sane thing w/ MAC's Chocolate Brown pigment.

I picked up NYX Never. It's gorgeous with Glamourdaze. love.gif

Never is very similar to MAC Plum, which is already my favorite liner to pair with Glamourdaze. Now I can use both pencils interchangeably.

 

EDIT: Trying on Glamourdaze with Never reminded me just how much I love this lipstick. So much so that I think I need another BU. I've been feeling the need to cut back on BUs in general now that my lipstick stash has grown so much, but I Glamourdaze needs more BUs.

That kind of accident is why I like to decant a small amount of pigment into a sample jar for daily use.  Of course, there is always a chance of spill during the transfer, but I will do that when I am NOT in a rush.  I am sorry that happened to you!

Thank you so much for your suggestion and your empathy!

 

Naturally I was rushing around early in the a.m. before work and did not think about doing something as rational as that.  Lavender pigment is my favorite, so I am very glad that did not happen with that color! I will have to find a small  jar in my stash.

post #7423 of 7768

Thank you all so much for your sympathy and support! It is incredible how many times things have slipped or hit the floor. Despite trying to be careful.....I had a face palette/highlighter that fell; the contents smashed to smithereens, completely unusable.

 

I also had a Tarte maracuja oil roll on bottle that accidentally rolled right off and smashed glass on the tile floor.  Again, rushing around in the morning trying to get to work early.....

I would love to hear some more opinions on the pigment sets.How do you like them?

Big shout out to the wonderful MACina, who CP-ed me 2 bottles of Everything That Glitters n/p, sent the parcel to me with free shipping and also included another sparkly glitter nail polish and 4 perfume samples!

I bought the brown pigment set and the purple pigment set. I like the brown crushed metal pigment set. it may be chunky but it's still workable for me, but not advisable to use all four colors together at once on the lids as it can be too shimmery, Would pair 2 colors @ a time for best effect. Haven used the purple pigment set yet so i have no comments on that but I do like the brown pigment set. But note, it can be quite chunky and glittery. the star color is the dark brown color in the brown pigment set

post #7427 of 7768

Thank you very much geeko smiles.gif

 

Do you happen to own any of the crushed metallic pigment sets that were released in the past?I wonder if these pigments are

more chunky and have a worse texture.

 

I have got several crushed metallic pigments so far and,while they sometimes need a bit of extra work,they are lovely products I do not want to miss in my stash.

Yep I have a few crush metal pigment sets from the past Spring color forcast, Surf baby, Vera, I feel that texture wise they are about the same (the dark brown one in the brown set has better texture though...chunky but smooth and blendable.) I will swatch the crush metal pigment from this collection when I have the time for ya k XD anyway I also gotta update my beauty blog so I hafta do some swatching too XD

post #7429 of 7768

I was gonna get Innocence l/s, but I just checked the MAC site and it's sold out.  It's still available on Selfridges but I'm not paying £4.50 shipping for 1 item. Ah well, wasn't meant to be I guess.

post #7432 of 7768

I did a Glamour Daze eye look today.  I'm afraid I hadn't used Divine Blue or Tall Dark and Handsome yet so I had to work these in.  Ready to Party on the inner lid, Divine blue on the outer 1/2 of the lid, Stolen Moment in the crease applied with the 286 ?? brush (duo fiber blender brush), Tall Dark and Handsome on the outer V applied with the 226 brush.  This is probably a little bit more colorful than I usually go but I did get a compliment from one of the makeup SAs at one of the counters.  I don't remember which counter.  I did look around for Round Midnight and so far I'm out of luck.  I'll keep looking though.  I still have yet to use Stylish Merry.  I'm so bad.

As promised MACina here are swatches for the tenderly warm crushed metal pigment set and sweetly smokey crushed metal pigment set for ya. I am lemming a lot for the brillantly cool one too...but i'm afraid I have busted my budget and unfortunately have to skip the brillantly cool set :(

let me know if you end up coming up with something interesting. i have a tendency to buy pigments, then when it comes to using them, i usually can't be bothered with the extra care it takes to work with them...so i'm trying to be good and keep myself going with these ones!!

 

your gd look sounds pretty. i didn't end up getting divine blue or tall dark and handsome, but i love all of the edes with this release. (more so than the first iteration. i know colours like round midnight were supposedly the same as rich core, but somehow i just prefer the richness of the holiday release...)

We were speaking of colored mascaras almost a month ago on this board. I dropped by the INGOLT website (http://inglotcosmetics.com/) where they are showing many new products. So I discovered that INGLOT now has a range of colorful mascaras. I have never used them, so cannot comment on how they perform. They are called Colour Play Mascara (US$10), and they have 5 colors which are named by number only, no descriptions, so i'm inventing them.

 

01 Brown (i guess it's colorful, since most of their other mascaras are just black)

04 Violet

05 Navy Blue

03 Bright Cobalt Blue

02 Bright Green (leans blue rather than yellow)

 

INGLOT has a new US website -- and a new UK site, and a new Australian -- so if there's no INGLOT counter near you, you can buy on the web.

http://www.inglotusa.com/

http://www.inglotuk.com/

http://www.inglotaustralia.com/

 

Apparently there's a stand-alone INGLOT store in Fashion Island Mall, Newport Beach. So i'll go there on my way driving back home and see the Pacific Blue lipsticks, since the local Macy's didn't carry them.

Guilty Passion sets are finally up! Not sure what I should do about Lavish Rose and Sweetly Smokey...

post #7440 of 7768

Hah! I wondered whether to get the coral gloss set or not, and wham! It's sold out. I guess it wasn't meant to be.
