Checked out this collection. Was going to get the lip balms and new brush. Didn't get balms as I wasn't mad on them-I prefer tendertones or chubby sticks but I lovvvveeeeeee the new brush. It's my Hg concealer brush for applying moistercover concealer- highly recommend.

I finally caught up on this thread. I was in London last week and the week before of course was christmas, so I didn't have much time to read or post in this thread and Strenght (they were going too fast lol). I love all the pics and hearing everyones favs!

 

I've of course picked up some (ok a lot) myself as well. I was able to B2M for all the lippies in London yay! I also got Amber Glow while I was there, because the MUA applied it and it looked lovely. I've been wearing it a couple of times the last few days and it definitely shows up as a blush for me. It's very natural though and goes perfect with the lippies and MES in this collection. I went to my local counter saturday (I arrived back in the netherlands on friday) and I got all the MES, BU of Stereo Rose and a BU of HC and HA each and I also got the 287 brush and Fling brow pencil (I'm finally getting into doing brows woohoo!).

 

I got some more goodies in London that were not from this line (typing all of it out makes it sound even worse) Full Coverage foundation (I'm really liking this), MSFN (mine was finished), BB cream in tube, the eyeshadow applicator thingies to try with my Crushed Metallic Pigments, pigments in Pink Bronze, Chartreuse and Kelly Green, Winkle e/s and finally Mehr l/s. Mehr is definitely darker than HA and it will be a great neutral pink. I'm really excited about this big haul.

 

Ow and I also got three packages in the mail which had the lipsticks in Quick Sizzle (I was sad I swapped away my BU), Absolute Power and Strong Woman, the 136 brush and Chanel Frivole blush and a BU of Notorious! I'm expecting two more packages and then I should be done for this month. I did pay for some of the packages a while ago, so it was not all my december money, but still it was a lot. Last year Naturally came out in february here, so it was spread better than this year. I guess this year I'll spend less in february.

When I went to the counter yesterday the MA said that the 287 was fantastic for concealer! I might just have to pick it up :p

Congrats! You did it!

 

Which shade did you get from Full Coverage? Is it the same you use in other foundations? I've been thinking of it, too. How much was it in the UK? I may include it to my order some time.

post #2589 of 3266

Thanks I sure will enjoy everything!

I would take pics if I had good daylight. When I leave in the morning for my internship it's still dark and when I get back it's also dark again:( Not that there was any good daylight at all these past weeks...I will try to remember to take my camera with me this weekend and see if I have time then and hope for some better light.

Thank you! I got NC15 as always. I'm not sure but I think it was about 22 pounds. Not more than other foundations I think.

BTW I got the BB cream in extra light if that helps someone. The light one is very pink and therefore I had to get extra light, which is very similar in darkness just more yellow.

Thanks, good to know. I'm a bit darked than you, NC20ish. I also swatched the BBs last week but I was thinking, based on other foundations I've been wearing, that my tube shade would be light plus. (I compared them with C2 and Pro Longwear NC20.)

post #2593 of 3266

That is a very nice haul, Pinkdollface mac_haul.gif

 

Enjoy all your new goodies!

 

I am sure that Absolute Power will look stunning on you since you look so beautiful with red lips.

 

It is great that you were able to get another Quick Sizzle thmbup.gif

I'm between NC20-25 with yellow undertones and I bought Light Plus. I wear F&B C2 and Matchmaster 1.5 if that helps at all.

Yes! iagree.gif 100%!

 

I love it, I wish I could've afforded a BU.

I accidentally got Light instead of Extra Light. I was worried it would look awful but it doesn't look pink when applied. It's super sheer. But I'm going to get Extra Light the next time round.

 

Great haul btw! Looks like you had a great time shopping cheerleader.gif

That's good to know. And thanks I sure had a great time. I had never been to the UK before and it was wonderful! Only downside was having to wait for 4 hours for the big fireworks in this giant mass of pushing people icon_eek.gif But the fireworks were beautiful!

Thank you! I can't wait to try AP. I've swatched it next to some other reds already and I was suprized to see it was so different. I thought it would be a lot like Charmed I'm Sure, but it's much brighter!

It was thanks to the lovely Yazmin that I got a BU of QS. She saw it in the clearance bin and knew I was looking for it, so she got it for me and then I could get it from her:) I'm really happy with everything and wish I had more time to play right now haha.

HA is amazing isn't it!? I'm wearing it today and it's the perfect soft neutral pink eyelove.gif I'm very happy with my BU. I realized I almost only BU bright lips so this was a good excuse to BU HA since it's a soft colour.

I just realized I haven't wished you all a happy new year yet, so I'll just do it now.

I don't think I'll get a BU, but I'll definitely purchase similar colors (soft neutral pinks) from the permanent line and/or future collections. heart.gif

I keep coming back to lemming the mineralize lip balms.  Are they similar to UD lip junkie balms (they seem to settle down from high shine to mid shine nicely)?  I like when a lip balm isn't too shine intensive but rather a mid/low shine moist look.  My lips are very pigmented and I hate how my lips look combined with a high shine impact look ><

I have a couple UD Lip Junkie Lip Glosses - Perversion and Midnight Cowboy. Is that what you mean, the gloss? Or is there also a balm?

 

I'd say the MAC Mineralize Lip Balms are as shiny as UD LJ LG (which is very shiny on me), but not as sticky. I also think the MAC MLB are more moisturizing than the UD LJ LG.

 

Additionally, according to Liba here, the Mineralize Lip Balms can be blotted down to a less shiny look and still feel and look good, something I can't really do with the UD LJ LG.

You should really try that out. I think it's the #1 feature of these Mineralize balms that sets them apart.You can blot them down to almost zero shine and not lose the color or the moisture and you can do that even when applying them on top of lipstick. 

 

There have been a lot of days lately where I've been feeling a bit haggard and wearing a full face of makeup is not really helping ohboy.gif, but a little of these balms and some Amber Glow/Alpine Bronze/Poised in one combo or another manages to make me look much much fresher and feel like a sprightly gal instead of a hag. lol.gif

I had an LE version of this brush from a prior holiday set and LOVED it...so much so that I purchased two of the 287 this time.  Totally agree---great brush!
