MAC Taste Temptations Collection (November 2012; December 2012) - Page 37

post #1081 of 1818
I don't like the colors on her lips :s the 2nd one doesn't look purple at all like the other swatches I've seen
post #1082 of 1818
I'm wearin nocturnal instincts in my new pic ( I have nc30 coloring)
post #1083 of 1818

I think I'm just going to get RiS plus a bu.  Seductive Intent is quite lovely but I'm happy with Heroine.  Unconventional looks like it has a wonderful texture and a sheen like a bp but it's even pinker than FoJ so...idk it just let me down.

I don't have NI but I'm still considering if I need it. 

 

I find it really interesting too...and frustrating at times, lol.  In certain swatches (like CartoonChic's) NI looked beautiful, but it looked much more mauve on me, so that was a bit of a downer.  Thank you so much for the details comparing NB to OF.  Definitely makes me lean more toward getting it.  I guess I'll just have to order it when it comes online and see how it comes out on my lips.  The worst thing that can happen is I discover it looks a lot like one of the other bright pink/fuchsia lippies I own...and would that really be so bad?  amuse.gif

NI and SI are sooooo pretty love.gif

This just made NI a must-have for me eyelove.gif

Can anyone who has both Nocturnal Instincts and Flaunting It do a side-by-side swatch comparison? Or at least let me know if they're similar or not.

post #1087 of 1818

After seeing so many swatches on so many different lip and skin tones, I am down to 3 items:

Mattene LipstickNocturnal Instincts - Mid-tone greyed lavender

LipglassPerky - Mid-tone shimmering lilac
Powder Blush - Unconventional - Pale shimmering lavender
 
And one to test, just in case:
Mattene LipstickSeductive Intent - Vivid purple - ?? maybe - i skipped Heroine purple because i have Violetta, but if this is bluer than Violetta i may go for it.
 
My wallet is happier when i only get a few things - more money for the next collection2cents.gif And in this case i feel pretty confident i will not have skipper's remorse.

I almost want to say to people if you missed out on heroine you should get seductive intent! They're not exact dupes but pretty damn close!

I have heroine but I like seductive intent because it looks like a cousin and well I don't really have any other colors in the heroine family, and lord knows I have like every fam related to candy yum yum.... So I think si is the only one from this line ill be getting

I'm starting to like Perky. I wish I had included it in my CP list.

You hope? Naah, you will

 

It's easily the best makeup investment I made this year. It rescued so many blushes from the what-was-I-thinking drawer lol.gif

Yeah, that one definitely needs the Yachiyo touch! I drooled over it when it was released with LoL but I was too intimidated to even contemplate buying it. Dark blush + Pale skin + Utter blush klutz = BAD combo lol.gif

 

I don't think I can use TT's Passionately Tempted with my regular blush brush either.

It is a nice colour (purple = nice colour, by default) so I don't think it was the packaging :)

 

LoL was a good collection. I was stupid enough to walk out the store with just two bottles of Blue India... while both BPs, Petals&Peacocks, Blooming Lovely and Bough Grey were all there looking at me with pleading eyes.

 

Needless to say my first bottle of Blue India is still 3/4 full.

Same here. I only have one bottle of Blue India but I do love this color. It's gorgeous.

I have one on its way to me now! I've had a MUA apply blush on me with one of them a couple of times and it always looks PERFECT. I figured it was the artist, but I tried it myself once at a Nars counter and felt like it was idiot proof. Which is good, because I am a blush idiot.

Morning Glory Lustreglass is very similar if you don't want to CP for Perky.

That just about sums up why I ended up getting it. I have a hard time not looking like an off-duty clown with most blushes, so the darker and heavily pigmented ones were off limits pre-Yachiyo.

Try the 184. While you can still overdo it with this brush, it definitely has a built-in damage control. The 184 is a must-have for palies. :-)

While I love it for bronzer I don't think I would like the shape for blush. To be honest I've never really tried it, because I already have the 131 and that's just love! Mac bring it back and make it permanent!

What way would you swipe with the 184 if you were to use it for blush? Would you hold it horizontal or vertical? I hope my questions makes sense:p

It's a pro product, right? Pro stuff aren't available on the NL website. Booo!

 

I actually have a GOSH fan brush. I got it in a sale ages ago, but I never used it because I didn't know what to do with it. It's probably not as good as 184 but I'll give it a whirl and wait for 184 to be repromoted in a collection :)

Oh yes, Blue India is gorgeous. It was my first dusty blue as well, so it has an extra special place in my heart heart.gif

 

But if I had any sense I would have got another LoL product instead of a BI backup. Heck, I would have got half the collection!

I got it in the Amsterdam pro store for €22 I think. If you have a change to go there and want to get it I do recommend calling first and ask for a hold. Just to be sure that it's stil there when you're finally in Amsterdam.

I don't think I'll go to Amsterdam any time soon but I suppose it would be a good idea to give them a call when I do yes.gif

I don't know the GOSH fan brush, but give it a go and see how it works for you. :-)
