My Stereo Rose came in last nigh. Love the finish! it remind of the new formula that MAC has put into place for the MSF since Lightscaped from the MAC Fall Colour Collection for Fall 2011. I've notice a finish difference and I'm wondering if I'm the only one to notice the finer milling of the MSF since then as well.

 

Thankfully it don't turn orange on me so it's a keeper.

I'm wearing lots of my AC goodies today and LOVE THEM ALL so far!

 

SR on my cheeks

Just Wonderful l/l w/ HC on my lips (GORGEOUS combo)

Eyes: Ice Inner Corner, Mossy Green Color Tattoo on the outer 3/4 of lid w/ SB on top (LOVE LOVE LOVE this pairing!), UD's Naked to blend out my crease, UD's Buck to deepen crease and outer v, UD's Virgin to highlight browbone

 

I'm super thrilled with this collection so far!  HC is a DEFINITE standout!  I love how it will pull more mauve or more brown depending on the liner.  I wore it with Spice l/l yesterday and it looked very 90's chic!  I'm diggin it!!

It pulls more mauve on me. I've been wearing it without liner. I think I will try it with Cork and see what it does.

Well I ordered Hot Chocolate l/s, Silver Birch MES, and both of the MSF's.  I just received an email that SR is on back order and it should be shipped in two weeks.  :(  I'm hopeful that I get it sooner!  I was really looking forward to owning it!

It is like a toned down light year with less glitter. Like a day use Light Year.

Would you want something less white and peachy like FM and more ivory + nude/apricot? It does the same sort of thing on me as FM, but less pale and retro and more natural looking, also with more sheen than something like Elude, but less than a lot of MSFs. It's really good at getting rid of freckles and unevenness and dullness. I know Mac-Guy was feeling like it came out with an orange cast on him, so if you're NW, you probably will want to test it - it may bring out the apricot in it more. It's one of the best no-makeup look face products of the whole year for me, maybe the best, though! I love it and am actually considering a BU, which I NEVER do with blush and highlighters, but have done with Elude and FM. Like I was saying before, I wouldn't want to use it over foundation - it's more for a very fresh faced, natural look.

 

It works great under the eyes the way Elude does, btw. I know you like using Elude that way...

 

I will definitely take a before and after picture of it on a day I don't have to use flash, like today.

 

EDIT: Since people are comparing it to Light Year, it's got more coverage than a single layer of LY and is less powdery - more melt-into-your-skin. I don't think it'd be good all over the face like MSFs, it's more for the cheeks and a touch on the nose perhaps, because of the type of sheen it has. Even with more coverage, I think it winds up looking more natural than LY. I definitely like LY, but AG I loooooooove. heart.gif

I am NW15+ and I loved it. It was apricot on me but not orange. It is prefect peaches and cream.  The AB wasn't orange on me either.

Will do! I have enough empties to B2M for 2 l/s, so HA, HC and also AC will be mine :D

post #1999 of 3266

I'm a little disappointed in HA l/s because it's not very pink on me.  I should have remembered that pink l/s tends to go a bit orange on me.  It's still a lovely mlbb color though and it is so so smooth.  I was surprised how well it wore on me, too.  I don't think it would hold up through a meal but I had a drink with it on and it was still there afterward.  I hope VG Nicki 2 is this smooth.  Amber Glow and Silver Birch are BEAUTIFUL!  I'm thinking of backing up both if I can.  I can see the subtle sparkles in AG on me but it's more sophisticated than obvious glitter.  It reminds me of twinkling snow. love.gif  I'm digging SR, too because it reminds me of Ring of Saturn.  Now I'm trying to decide if I need Ice or if I should get some of the pressed pigments instead.  Hope everyone is enjoying their goods!

That's great to hear! I'm glad you love it. It looks so plain and common in the pan, but it's really unique on. drinkup.gif

All the pics of and talk about Hot Chocolate are whittling away any willpower I've been trying to cling to.  It's still sitting in my cart waiting for me to check out.

I'll try to do a comparison tomorrow since it's dark now.  Maybe the sun will come back out tomorrow, too.  So far I've noticed that SB is much more glittery.  Or at least mine is, I'm not sure if it's a veining issue.  It was very smooth, though.  Just so lovely.
