My lips are red and it read mid-tone taupe with a blue plum undertone. It's a Satin, but one of those very matte Satins. It's not my #1 favorite, but that's only because there are some super awesome colors in this collection. I think it goes Warm Companion > Haute Altitude > Hot Chocolate > Cozy Up > Apres Chic for me, based on how good it looks + how much daily use I'd get from it + how it will go with my clothes + grooviness factor eyelove.gif Am I overanalyzing this?? lol. I just want all my little lovelies in my hands ASAP!

 

Anyhow, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL th_thb5ed765e.gif Totally off-topic, but if you can handle some content that's not for kids or the faint of heart, here's a link to my annual holiday youtube playlist: 6 hours of cartoons, old crazy music, creepy christmas horror and general WTF to have a few 'nogs to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wl0PSXPOsk&list=PLE3025AE3C1F69B23&feature=mh_lolz

How do you think it will react to pink pigmented lips?

i figure TS would be better on me than notorious, just because TS seems lighter. It gave me a perfect level of contour shadow effect, but i'm nc15 - if i was nc45, something deeper would be better for a contour, at least.

Do you have any of the MAC sculpting powders?

 

I really like TS, but as a contour, it fails due to the very apparent sheen. For contouring, I prefer Bon Beig, Sculpt, or Harmony.

post #1512 of 3266

i love the collection i think its so pretty! the shadows are gorgeous and the lip conditioners are really nice alternative to gloss you get the sparkle of a dazzleglass just not as intense and the hydration of the conditioner!

I love that dark smokey blue eye pic in the second link! Wonder exactly what she used. I think Frost at Midnight & Fireside look lovely together.

MAC-Guy I am using Coffee Walnut as a contour and am quite happy with it. I still want TS. What should I use it for if not a contour?

 

PS I am NW20

 

 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE & A SAFE AND HAPPY 2013!

I use TS as a blending/transition color on the cheeks and/or as a statement blush. The sheen is quite apparent, so IMO, it doesn't work at all as a contour.* TS will work as a blush on special occasions where you want to stand out with a very unusual blush color. It also makes a stellar 5 o' clock shadow where you don't want to be completely matte (a bit of a sheen will emphasize beard stubbles but I guess that's not what you want ;-)

 

For proper contouring, I'm sticking to Bon Beige, Sculpt or Coffee Walnut as a contour as they are neutral/cool and matte. A shiny contour defeats the purpose of contouring; in fact, in most cases it will just look wrong.

 

 

 

* I think it works on the models/fashion week images as they have very high cheek bones, in which case the sheen doesn't bother the contour.

This must be why I don't see the sheen on my cheeks, unless I turn my head on the side so the light can hit that part of the cheek.

You have divine cheekbones, thus you can get away with TS as a contour heart.gif

 

It looks gorgeous on you!

After seeing swatches of Hot Chocolate.. I think I want to snatch one up as well.. It's a unique color I don't have in my arsenal yet.

post #1525 of 3266
Merry Christmas everyone!!!! And happy holidays!!!
post #1526 of 3266

thanks for the pictures! I think I want almost all the lippies except that sheer one and warm companion,

they're so pretty! so exciting now just to get my hands on them tomorrow before they sell out :(

post #1527 of 3266
I reach for my Stereo Rose all the time! I am 'NC 20 for reference and it doesnt look metallic at all on me... I think I will get a backup smiles.gif
post #1528 of 3266

Funny, the sheen wasn't apparent on me, but I used it without foundation. I wonder if that has an impact - it sure did with the MBs from Apres Chic (no way I'd wear those over even medium foundation). It's so nice to have something that needs minimal effort like TS does for me. I couldn't wear it as an actual blush, though.

 

I've got Coffee Walnut as my main contour, or sometimes the creme blend blush from the Desert Camo compact - normally, I'd rather have a cream contour, because of my dry skin. 

 

I spent years never contouring because I felt my face was too pudgy and flat to figure out a convincing way to do it, but since I lost a bunch of weight a couple years ago, my bone structure works much better for it. If the texture's right, I'd try more powder contours again, since I've had good luck with TS and Alpine Bronze….always up for something new!

Ok I have been doing some major MAC hauling. In Orlando I went to the Vineland CCO and purchased Lightscapade, Vile Violet, the beige Cruella eye color sorry forgot the name, and the Volcanic Ash face mask. just placed my order for Winter Oursuit, Ice, Fireside, Alpine Bronze, Pink Porclain, Rosy Romance, slightly Nude, Pure and Tender, Candy Yum Yum, Nicki Minaj, Haute Altitude, and Pro Concealer Palette in Meduim. And a friend is sending me Stereo Rose. Merry Christmas ya'll!
