I have both, because if it looks unconventional or unnatural, i want it th_rolleye0014.gifblink.gif

 

Taupe Shape is closer to a natural skin tone, so, for that reason TS is more "forgiving" and less obvious if not expertly blended - and, hey, i'm no expert.

 

Notorious is somewhat mauve-grey-taupe, so more unnatural. I've found that to get it to blend, i need use a soft powder on my cheeks before applying it and then use a separate buffing brush. I think it is probably not truly worth more than twice as much as TS, but it is certainly a very high quality product in a much nicer compact than MAC's and it is a color unlike any other. It's the color of shadow at dusk. Sad to say, Chanel rarely re-promotes a color, to the best of my knowledge, so i doubt it will come back.

Looks like Dramatic Encounter to me (from Glamour Daze)

I suspect it is because Strength and Apres Chic came out at the same time and people will wonder how close those products are to each other.

iagree.gifWhatever that shade of lipstick is, Khloe wears it well.

Then your store is real different from mine! There isn't enough light to see the differences between many colors. I'm always squeezing myself into the window or going out the front door onto the street to get enough good light to see the colors.

Thanks, I will try and see because, I know if they ever re-stock online I will miss it!!! I really love Warm Companion ; ) I don't mind frost finishes! I think I am on a no buy till VIVA GLAM NICKI 2 and then Archie's Girls...Unless they surprise us with a lovely collection in btw time ; )

I do too - it really makes it quite different from the other purples that have been coming out. I don't even think I'd want to call it purple- on me it's more like a retro musky magenta! I had an old suit from the early 60's that was this color. It's creeping up my Love-o-Meter - so unique!

 

Color Saturation looks so awesome over it, too - even better than it does over Heroine. I wish I had a scarlet cremesheen glass to try over it to bring out even more red…Astral might work too!

I don't unfortunately since I'm a Pro member, but if you'd like me to PM you with the store's location and phone number, I'd be happy to do so.  Not sure if they ship, but it's worth asking!

Awesome idea!  I was about to take a nice bubble bath with candles and Champagne and watch the New Year's coverage on tv, but I think I will add putting on a pretty lipstick to the equation :)

It has shipped but its stayed in its location for like four days now. It's not even in my state yet. 

 

I know right! I don't even know if UPS runs on new years eve.

They don't deliver on NYE.  At least not in my state, if that makes a difference.  My package has been sitting at UPS since 12/28 and the next business day is 1/2.  So bizarre.

I'd go with light bright neutral or near-neutral colors. Play up the gold, although you don't need to wear GOLD eye shadow; shadows with golden highlights or colors that are close to gold would be good, too. For example, Extra Dimensional Natural Flirt would be nice as one of the colors.

 

Maybe a little glitter from the outside of the orbit up the temples.

 

Strong dark liner and mascara.

 

Some shimmer on the cheek bones.

I'm still trying to catch up on this forum and Apres Chic, they grow faster than i can read them!

Does anyone have Seeds of Desire mattene and Firm Form and can compare or swatch the two head to head?  (or lip to lip???)

 

Well, if it hasn't been done already by then, i'll do it tomorrow when there's daylight, since i have both. They are rather different...

I received a package today via UPS, so maybe it does vary by state. Or as someone stated earlier, it may depend on the level of service...I think no Ground deliveries.

post #3260 of 4811

My package is still sitting at the same place it was DAYS ago. No movement. Booo. MEANWHILE thanks to MacJunkie85 was kind enough to sale me her extra PP and it arrived today!! (She sent it Friday and it arrived on Monday, now that just makes no sense MAC!)

post #3261 of 4811
UPS would show no movement because of the holiday. My package ordered last Sunday isn't expected until Thursday thanks to the holidays

Yup, the "it varies" theory makes sense then!

post #3263 of 4811

I may have missed this info, but is this collection just online or will it be at counter macs too?
