post #4021 of 4813

I have been meaning to buy NYX Taupe blush for awhile now, but I wasn't sure. How do you like it? If you have Taupe Shape (which I just ordered) should I still buy NYX Taupe Blush also? Thank you!

I love it! It's buildable, easy to blend and it stays on untill the end of the day. I don't have Taupe Shape and I'm not going to order it when the collection comes out here in Holland. But from what I've read.. TS is more neutral and a bit shimmery and Taupe is matte/greyer/bit darker/more pigmented. So far it's the only thing that works on my skintone for contour.. strangely enough.. because I'm about NC20/NC25 (I don't own mac foundations) with very yellow undertones.

Yeah the lessons have a fee, uninterrupted. But they aren't doing something right, cuz you should ALWAYS be able to make an appointment, redeemable in product. They're only available at certain times (depending on appointments already booked and # of artists working, but appointments are always taken (except for major holidays of course). In these appointments they will step away. It's basically like a walk-up, just set at a certain time.

They're definitely making up their own rules. My boss tried that when i worked for mac. It didn't fly!

Not sure if this helpful since I'm only at NC40 right now, but I really love the way Poised looks on me. I wore it out on New Year's Eve with the All Woman quad on my eyes, and it was a nice way to get my cheeks to pop without being too bright. I'm not a huge fan of having my cheeks compete with other bright makeup on my face, and I can see myself using this blush pretty much every time I wear smoky eyes, red lipstick, etc. It looks like a rosy brown on me, and that's exactly what I wanted!

I didn't get it...   I'm tempted... Just came from NOrdies Mac too...   hmm....  Maybe I'll leave it since I have a few no blush looking blushes now with SUR being my fave...   Oh shit, I did get it.  LOL   I'll try it soon.

When this collection was 1st released, I tried Party Parrot on at the Mac Store and did not like it. Got my hands on another one and decided to give it another try and I love it! Not sure about those lights at the MAC store. FYI, I'm NC45/MUFE 173. So if you passed on it, you may want to try it again (even as a lip stain).

Suffering from product overload I see...the condition of purchasing so much makeup that YOU FORGET WHAT YOU HAVE!   girlhaha.gif

They better not cancel... nonono.gif

 

I tried to talk myself out of getting any BU, but I've been loving Pink Pigeon and Party Parrot a lot lately.

post #4041 of 4813

Well, I just ordered PaPa with second day shipping as I leave for a week this friday. I completed my order then checked the swatch again and it's now sold out. I wonder if I got the last one? Either that or I'll get a BO notice or a cancelled notice. Time will tell I guess.

I hear ya. Just seems odd unless the system is that smart to know when the last order is completed. I'll be checking my email tho. Crossing fingers for the both of us.

Thank you! amuse.gif

 

Definitely play around with it! I blanked out my lips with Dim lip erase (but foundation/concealer would do), filled it in with Magenta then put Strong Woman on top.
