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.

Photo is still available actually. I googled it to see what it looked like and not really any swatches. I wish I would have worn makeup when I was a younger teen so I coulda played with the 90's mattes. I did wear flannels and stuff tho lol. 

 

Edit b/c of silly typo. Oops, it's late lol.

I was wearing Modern Mandarin mixed with a little bit of NARS Lovejoy. I topped it off with Stereo Rose as a highlight. bigheart.gif

I've been wearing my balm under and over and by itself. Loving it. It is esp. good blotted under a drier lippie because my lips need moisture.

 

Today I was wearing HC with Just Wonderful l/l to make it a bit redder. Liked it. I would not mind if it were just brown on me, but it's with a hint of red which is not good on me, so I need to make it a bit redder. I think I will try HA with JW too, because HA is too pink for me! lol.gif

I got Silver Birch today, very pretty. Like it a lot better than Ice. Still very shimmery, but not like the crazy sparkly glitter orgy on lids that is Ice. I feel like it looks almost gold on me, or rather there's more of an antique gold hue to it than what I expected from swatches. I like it better than Chanel Epatant.

Very pretty!!! I'm debating if i should spend some money on a good mascara or just revelon because it dries out so quickly.

ooo you got on of the gold ones! 

 

Could you take a photo of your pan? I got that look when I first tested it, but the one I picked out doesn't show up with that antique golden hue, even though I tried to get one without a lot of black. I'd love to see what the vein mix you need for the gold look looks like!

I will try to take a decent pic in the next days! I haven't even paid attention to veining with the MES from this collection. I don't think mine looks a lot different from the other ones I've seen online. But when I swatched it antique gold was the first thing that came to mind. I used it wet with Fix+, though.

Was able to score the last two HC lippies from my Dillard's counter, score! Now on a search to find a backup of HA :/

mine's been really grey, even with Fix+

 

So weird - I was really looking forward to the olive gold - I have enough grey shadows already.

post #2657 of 3266

I'm wondering how the veining helps with the color of SB too. I haven't played with mine yet. I'd love to see what an olive gold one looks like in pan.

You are making me so happy I ordered one of these!!  I just got my black box 10 minutes ago and can't wait to try it out.  It looks awesome on you!

post #2660 of 3266

I'm going to have to play around with my HC I think.  When I applied it, it was super, super dark on me.  In the end I took it off and applied GD as I didn't have time to play with it or anything else with me as I was away travelling.  I do love HA though.

The last of my AC haul arrived today, very happy with all my purchases.

Mine looks like that too, although I'm only seeing it in artificial light. 

 

Silver Birch and Fireside, with and without flash: 

 

 

 

How they look in the pan (no flash). I would have preferred more of the purple in Fireside, the dark patch on the right side is all there is: 

 

 

Hot Chocolate, Haute Altitude and Apres Chic (with and without flash). HC looks way browner here than it does in daylight: 

 

 

I tried to do some lip swatches during the day but it turns out I suck at using my camera phone! These are the best I could manage.

 

Hot Chocolate:

 

 

Haute Altitude

 

 

None of Apres Chic but it's a very wearable daytime red for someone not used to reds smiles.gif

 

For reference, I think I'm probably NW10

Skipping AC was a bad move.

I'm sorry. I hate when that happens. Do you mean the lippie or the whole collection?

LOL!  How old is your daughter?  I have 2 daughters ages 4 and 2 and I cherish the times when I can unveil my black boxes and do my makeup alone!!

I wasn't thinking of a specific lipstick but more of a look that was popular.

Lippie. It sold out very quickly online and I took my time trying to decide. Ah well, more money for Archie!
