Hot chocolate is pretty. Thanks Cartoon Chic.  I love it.  It looks great with Small Vanity blush as well.

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!
That's what one of the main reasons I purchased the mineralized brush set from GD, so was happy to get a full size version with the release of AC!

CartoonChic AKA CC recommended a nail color to go with Glamourdaze L/S but it's an even better match with HOT CHOCOLATE.  It's Butter London's TOFF---love it so much!  Just thought I'd put that out there for those who enjoy natural rosy browns, etc.

Thanks CC!

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'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.

Yes sorry!  My bad :)  I got my words mixed up hehe.  I just found that with the UD glosses that they aren't as sticky and that they settled down to a less shiny look after a bit.  I think I will give the MAC mineralize balms a try and see for myself :)  I am so easily enabled haha.  Liba is a master of that with this collection!

So happy my order with SB and Ice arrived today. Ice is pretty frosty but will make a nice h/l. Can't wait to wear it. SB us pure gorgeous sheen.
post #2621 of 3266

My Hot Chocolate came today.  It looks good on me.  In fact, in really does look like a 90s lipstick - Sheer Plum.  I used to wear Mac Sheer Plum in the 90s.  I haven't worn it in ages and can't do a side by side comparison but it reminds me of that lipstick.  So in this case, it is good for me. When I heard '90s lipstick, I was thinking of that gray-brown lipstick that everyone was wearing. I called it the corpse look.  But this isn't that look, at least on me.

Love Hot Chocolate on its own, but I paired it with Boldly Bare lip pencil to warm it up a bit.

Glad you like it.  I found my Plum lip liner and I'm liking Hot Chocolate even more.  80s, 90's who cares--it's just beautiful!   th_dunno.gif

I ordered HC from Nordies. I skipped all the lipsticks from this collection. After seeing all of the HC photos I knew it was something I needed in my collection.

     i love how HC  looks on you, what blush are you wearing?? it looks perfect with HC.

post #2633 of 3266

I want my HC so I can see how it pulls on me lol. I'm an NW and I wonder how that'll affect the color. Btw, is NC more common for people to be than NW or is it even? Seems to be less NW's that I can see but I could be wrong.

I want to know the blush color too! It does look really nice. I'm gonna try my Small Vanity with my HC when it arrives.

the gold one and the rose colored one.  That one is just GORGEOUS.  I'm nc44 with super pink lips.   the other colors were sheer on me.  I still like them though.
