I got the Guilty Passions, 'Brilliantly Cool' set.  The only pigment that I've tried from this set so far is Spruced.  It's really pretty, but at the time it was brighter than what I was going for in a look that day.  So, I topped it w/MAC's Plumage e/s and created a dark green smokey eye look.  I generally like pigments and should reach for them more often than I do.  I think I'll have a 'Pigment Week', using a different pigment every day.  From this particular set I'm looking forward to using 'I've Got a Crush on You', a browned teal that reminds me of Club e/s.

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.


I'd like to find a nail polish to match Glamourdaze...know of any?    anyone.gif

that sounds really nice.  i think i will try it out tomorrow!

 

'i've got a crush on you' is really nice...it pulls much more red toned brown on me than club when i've used it...club kinda gives me more smokey and this one gives me more colour...(just over tfsi on skin)

Thank you Medgal !

 

That sounds like a very pretty combo heart.gif

OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress comes to my mind...it is to me the perfect melange of red, wine and pink just like GD lippy...

Those two were the only Guilty Passions sets i got. I was only going to get the Sweetly Smoky pigments, but i caved and got the Lavish Rose lip glosses, too, mostly for 'Boys Go Crazy' Dazzleglass. Christine of Temptalia said that the one in the set was actually larger than when sold alone, so i figured i paid the price of 2 lip glosses and got 4... gotta justify spending the money somehow th_thdeadea.gif All the sets are nice, but i'm soooo on Team Purple.

 

For the gloss sets, I have more than enough pinky peach glosses for days when i'm being "nice", so the coral set was out. And i'm very picky about nudes - most look too orange on me - so the nude set was out.

 

As for the pigments, I had tested the green and neutral pigment sets, and of course they looked beautiful. Some people complain that they're a bit crunchy or chunky, but that doesn't bother me. The green set was so pretty, but i have at least one of the pigments ('Moss Garden' in Vera collex 'Butterfly Party') and i have eye shadows similar to the other colors. I also had one of the pigments in the neutral set ('Rose Light' in Vera collex 'Strawberry Patch'), and the rest were somewhat similar to the Vera 'Aloha' neutral set. ...Why, yes, i did get all 3 Vera pigment sets, both Pearlmattes, 4 Pearlglides, & 'Butterfly Dream' Plushglass, 'cuz i love the color, even tho' i'm no fan of Plushglasses. At least i spread those purchases out over 3 months.

 

I really hauled on Glamour Daze, so i'm trying to only spend modestly on the remaining collections this year - I completely skipped Holiday Fabulousness, nothing from Making Pretty coll., and only 3 out of 15 from Taste Temptations coll. I want 4 things out of 19 in the Strength coll. But Après Chic is killing me... out of 30 things i want 8 or 9, which is a lot.

 

To sum up: I have already voted for Sweetly Smoky and Lavish Rose kissy.gif

Now that is a terrific idea! I hope you don't mind if i steal it from you... now that i have 4 pigment sets and a couple individual pigments, and i don't wear them often enough, either.

I too love glamourdaze  worn with all those pencils as well as  MAC mahogany.

Do you apply your pigments wet or dry?

Medgal - did you know if you want to respond to multiple posts at once you can use the MULTI button to the left of the QUOTE button. You hit Multi on every post you want to respond to and on the final one hit the Quote and will pull all of them together. Just trying to help. heart2.gif

Thanks :)

 

My original plan was to get Lavish Rose, mostly for Boys Go Crazy. Then I saw Geeko's swatches of Sweetly Smoky and I was sold! I'm flying home for my holidays on Saturday so I'm going to check the MAC counter at the airport. Yay for Duty Free prices!

I have all of those (OF is in route thanks to a lovely Specktra lady--thank you Spanky!) Hangs head in shame.  You can never have too much fuchsia or purple, right?

 

Okay, I am starting to vacillate about wanting the quad.  Must resist!

iagree.gif....NEVER EVER!!!!

I have none of them but they're all so pretty! I own hardly any bright pinks and purples. This may need to be rectified immediately :D

Naughty Saute looks nice...

Sigh. Lavender Whip is DIVINE.

 

I actually saw it on eBay a couple of weeks ago but decided not to get it because I was worried about it being too old. I'm not very keen on buying cream-based products that have been discontinued because I'm concerned that they may already have gone off.

 

I should have bought it. It's such a gorgeous colour eyelove.gif

Next time you see it, I recommend snap it up if you think the product is authentic and the seller genuine/reputable.  It is so worth having.  Not to go broke over though!

both...i usually only use them wet when i'm doing an all-over wash.  i found with these pigments i had to use my finger to blend them out after initial application. i used IGACOY dry with a 239 i think...

Ohhhh man, then I know where I'm going this weekend!!!  Thanks for the heads up!  Hope my CCO has it.

post #7470 of 7768

Yes....I would never buy (older) cream-based products on ebay either.

You never know how the sellers had stored the stuff and if they had already opened it before selling it.
