I'm still working on it. I got Fireside (deep plum with green duochrome), Frost at Midnight (dark blue violet), and Silver Birch (grey with peach veining). I knew that FS and FaM were quite dark. But the SB i ended up with was also dark - I can only hope that as i work my way through it it will get lighter. Because of the shape of my eyelids (i'm over 60 and gravity is taking its toll) i rarely wear dark eyeshadows on my lids, so i'm working on ways to wear them that don't make me look like i missed 3 nights' sleep.

 

The PPs (Pressed Pigments) are working pretty well to lighten and brighten: Sweet Acting on my lid with Fireside in the crease, or Amethyst on the lid with FaM in the crease.

 

But I'm a little sad because i love the unpredictable colors that come from swirly MESs, and in the crease they don't get to be on display enough. I may need to try them on the lid with a light shimmery liner. I have Let's Skate PP (Paint Pot) which should work with Fireside, Catch My Eye Fluidline may work with Silver Birch, and i can try Heirloom Eye Kohl with FaM. I may need to add something non-shimmery just above my crease - i don't use highlighter under my brows any more because i'm getting to feel like it's a cliché and my skin care products make them light reflective enough.

 

My local MAC has the new Paint Pots in, so i'm going to test them tomorrow or Sunday.

 

Do you have Idyllic p/p? It looks awesome under Fireside.

Pomegranate Punk Color Tattoo looks similar from what I've seen to Idyllic. I don't know for certain tho as I don't have Idyllic pp. But, if it is I bet it might help someone out. I plan to try my FS over it actually.

I ordered the 6th as well. I didn't cancel it and now I'm going to have two Après Chics since I ordered it when it popped up on the mac site thinking for sure my nordies would cancel on me.

I got Rosy Romance,Stay Warm and Pure & Tender.My favorite is Rosy Romance followed by Stay Warm and P&T.

RR is the most pigmented out of the 3 and I love the soft shimmer (sparkles) that it has.

 

OK!!  I wanted to pick up maybe 2 more plus a BU of SN... so I'll get RR and SW off your rec!  Thanks!

SN is a great layering one if you were going to grab another yourself.  Doesn't change the color of your lipstick much, just adds that glossy sheen w a little extra something!

There will be more MLBs released with the BB collection in April yahoo.gif

 

And the colors sound gorgeous....I cannot wait!

I'm sure you'll like it smiles.gif it's definitely more of an everyday "red" for me since it's not bright and like "pow in your face" smiles.gif

What lip liner would you wear with AP? I know it probably doesn't need one but I usually like my lips defined.

Ladies, NYX burgundy lip liner is a perfect match for AP!
post #3109 of 3266

The blushes from this collection are amazing, and have a beautiful color pay off.

Thanks!  I have that pencil!  I think I used Beet when I wore AC and felt it wasn't quite right...  It was just the only red-family liner I had in my travel case so that's what I used!  Now I'll try Burgundy for sure!

Thank you! Still deciding if I want to keep it. If I do I won't be wearing it anytime soon seeing as its going to be time for more spring-ish colors.

Ah, i have them both. I'll swatch 'em side by side and see what the differences are. I prefer the texture of the PPs over that of Color Tattoo. I like the CTs, but they're a bit... ummm... stiffer than the PPs. The CTs do set up almost immobile, though.

I hope Stereo Rose gets restocked soon! :(
