Tell me about it. After the BR and Marilyn fiascos I don't want to risk leaving my hauls to the mercy of MAC.nl and Douglas. What are you going to do about Archie?

Fingers crossed you're are able to get hold of them soon!

Do you like it? I actually like the PLW e/l very much. They do last on me - similar to the Powerpoint formula.

I got Black Ice and it won't even show up on my waterline. I go over and over and nothing! It does last on my lash line all day though. I did a hand swatch and it stayed put even after many hand washes. I find Maybelline Master drama eyeliner is the only one that shows up on my waterline.

This will be my first one and I haven't tried ti yet. Powerpoints are my favourites though.

I love this look!  I did something pretty similar today, using Soft Flower over the lid with WP layered over it.  I wanted to bring out the corally-pink tones.  I used Folie in the crease and Tweet Me on the lids, then Soft Ochre in the crease.  I really, really liked this look.  If you have blue eyes, WP will really bring them out.  I know that Silver Birch is getting all the MES love, but WP may be my personal favorite--and this coming from a neutrals eye girl!

I'm going to order all the must-haves, and probably leave some maybes and possible NPs of course for a local haul.

 

Thanks! Hope we all get to haul 100%!

Whoops wrong thread

Is anyone looking for Haute Altitude? I have an extra one that I don't need.

post #2921 of 3266
Off topic but I know I will have a better chance of getting an answer.

If I had to keep one would it be soft and gentle or whisper of guilt? I need one I can wear with any look.

I'm medium skin tone but can tan well in the summer. Please help!
post #2922 of 3266

Liba, here's the pic of my SB as promised. (a little late and no swatch, sorry blush-anim-cl.gif) I picked up the color from the upper right corner mostly when I used it for the first time, maybe that's why it looked antique gold-ish, because the veining is lighter there.

And you can picture make-up, as you went?

Way to go Prettypackages!  Did you fill & line, or just line?

My tan is perpetual, and I use both Soft & Gentle and Whisper of Guilt.  When I'm torn about which highlighter (I have several) to wear I reach for Soft & Gentle.  For me, it works with any look, tried & true, and I don't have to over-think it.

i just got alpine bronze today and it is so beautiful. It is like this sunkissed glow. I will try it with WOG. Also got rosy romance lip balm and the formula is great and it is very pigmented. I really wish the others are pigmented. Maybe will get nice and simple cause someone mentioned it give a nice golden glow.

Since it seems you have both, if you like them equally then I would keep WoG since it was limited edition, and Soft and Gentle is a product you can get anytime.  It really depends on how much sheen you like (if you like more, keep WoG; a little more subtle, keep S&G) and what kind of color you like in your highlight (WoG is obviously a yellow/white gold, whereas S&G is a soft pink).  Which would you be more likely to use on a regular basis?  Personally WoG is my favorite for highlighting, but it's all a matter of what you like for yourself!

Keep them, I bought wog when it first came out and I didn't take it out till forever till before the next one came out and I love it almost everyday well when I wear makeup I put it on....I swore I had soft and gentle but I checked and can't find it. So I can only speak for wog as of now if I remember right I wore soft and gentle all over for summer glow
