So this is what had happened, right. LOL! I ordered the Mineralize Brush Kit and now have a Stolen moment BU. I blame Medgal! She got me with the matching brush kit and travel bag. The Stolen Moment BU was the accidental extra I purchased, but now I've decided to keep it. I'm also considering a Round Midnight BU. Funny how I was originally going to skip that one. Ready to Party might get a BU as well and I want to swatch Impossibly Sweet Lipglass to see if it's worth getting. Your fedora is safe and secure, Medgal.

It's in the upper right corner to the right of the thread title. It's called Recent Images In This Thread. You're right in that I don't think it was there before. I'm not sure if there needs to be a certain number of pictures for it to appear or what. If you go to the main thread, you'll see it. Click on it and you'll see all the pictures/swatches that have been uploaded to the thread.

 

Lol again @ Ashy Larry! That clip just cracks me up.

~trembling~ I will not buy the brush set, I will not buy the brush set..  Thank God that travel bag is sold out.  I did want to go back for Superb. Now I see I need to get E/S bakcups. 

 

 But I need boots!!! ~stomps foot~  And of course I've seen FIVE pairs I want.  Sigh.  There's not enough money. 

 

Thankfully, I'm not buying again until 11/23, can skip most of Apres Chic.

The rest of the swatches from my collection choices are on my blog. Location in my siggy.

Thanks for the swatch!  I've since gotten my Small Vanity and I love it almost as much as my Pressed Amber.   I was referring to the color, in terms of any likenesses/similarities between the two blushes.  I think I was originally intrigued by the color descriptions of Small Vanity & Pressed Amber, dusty rose & mélange, nude, beige etc., respectively.   I had a few reservations but now I'm really glad I got Small Vanity....so pretty!

post #126 of 182

I'm pretty happy with Small Vanity. It's a great neutral blush on me. The color may be distorted b/c I haven't washed my brush and had been using Hidden Treasure. Moreso yesterday than today. Today I felt like I had to pile it on to get color payoff and I'm not that dark. I'm used to using NARS though so maybe it's just a pigmentation thing I'm not used to.

I seriously need to pull my Notable out asap you ladies are making me think I'm super crazy because I don't think I've put it on all year long! That's so sad! I'm going to make it a point to put it on in the morning.

 

But today I'm wearing SV and its pure love! I'm the One is also great, very WOC friendly. I got Easy Manner to its very buildable and you have to buff it in for a cute pinky cheek, I don't think its a "must".

Do any of you ladies have brush recommendations for the EDES and EDSF? I'm wearing A Natural Flirt today, but I didn't feel like I was getting any color on my eyes. I have and old Sephora brush set and will be working on updating my brushes soon.

I have recently fallen in love with the 215.  I initially started using it to apply pigments but have since used it for EDES, as well.  I think it picks up product nicely and it's large enough to make the application process faster.  The 130 has worked well for me with EDSF and MSFs.

post #131 of 182

In my opinion the winners from this collection are Outrageously Fun lipstick, I love this lipstick!! Beauty, Glamour Daze and Dramatic Encounter if you want that dark lip for fall. The blushes I'm the One and Small Vanity! Whisper of Guilt EXDMSF!

I got all of the GD lipsticks except Beauty!  Have I missed out here?  Oh no  icon_eek.gif  Licks wound

It seems that Cork is the popular liner with lighter shades.

Thank you! I am so unskilled when it comes to application.

 

Shout out to ALL you ladies who recommended Small Vanity. I have been werking this color! It's a great neutral and perfect for the no makeup look. Wore it last night when I went to see someone interesting so I could play like I wasn't wearing anything and was just naturally gorgeous. Haha! You know how we do. Brown eyeliner, curled lashes, neutral blush, beige eye shadow, and plenty o' gloss.

so proud of myself, walked into nordies and only got the two for one mascaras and did not go by glamourdaze or chanel.  I did buy boots, and a coat though.  SMH  But I struggled with the purchase.  I can drop $200 on makeup, but not on anything else.   Something is wrong. LOL

The 215 and 130 would be my recs as well. I bought the 215 specifically to use with the EDES and the L'Oreal Infallible shadows. The brush is really dense so it picks up the product well. I use the 130 for EDSF for the same reason, it's dense. It's also small enough to target specific areas. I've seen the 128 mentioned as well, but haven't tried it. Nordstrom still has it.

I'm wondering the same thing now? I had Beauty, but didn't try it on my lips because I decided to sell it. The SA gave it to me by accident instead of Glamourdaze. It looked way too pale when I swatched the tester on my hand. I didn't feel like working too hard to get it to work.

 

I was going to suggest a brown liner as well. Plum could also be a good one to use. My favorite go-to lip pencil is Currant. One of the YouTubers I like to watch says, "When in doubt, Currant your way out." Truer words have never been spoken.

I'm wondering if MAC has added the 128 split fiber cheek brush to its permanent product range?  It's currently on the site.  I LOVE this brush for its versatility.  I use it to apply blush and sometimes use it to apply foundation or other liquid/cream products, applying with one side and buffing with the other.

Are you on the Canadian site by chance? I searched for it and it came up, but then saw I was on the Canadian site. I switched over to the US site and it's not there.

Yes, I was on the Canadian site.  My MAC Book Pro goes to the Canadian site and my iPad & iPhone go to the US site.  When I order via the Canadian site, the prices change to US once I enter my zip code.

I wore Glamourdaze for the first time last night...lined with Burgundy l/p and topped with Plum Fun l/g.  The hubs loved it.  I had strong eyes & cheeks so it was the perfect 'quiet' lip color for the overall look.

post #148 of 182

Thanks CartoonChic and Medgal. I may just go ahead and get the Mineral Brush Kit for the 130. I need to start a running list of brushes I need and their uses. I don't think I'm clever enough to use the 128. Perhaps I'll check it out on Youtube.

That look sounds pretty too. Now I need to try your look and MissTT's. I don't have Burgundy and I didn't get Plum Fun. I'm sure I can find substitutes.

post #150 of 182

It makes me laugh to hear my makeup called "a look". I am a makeup minimalist and y'all are pros. My look for Friday night was:

bareMinerals Correcting Concealer Dark 2

MUFE HD Microfinish Powder

A Natural Flirt EDES (or maybe MUFE #126)

Demolition eye liner (Urban Decay)

Small Vanity blush

Smith's Rosebud Salve

 

I was wearing Zella Live In leggings (HG for real! Lifts bum and camouflages lumps), Nike fleece, and a pony tail trying to act like I'd rolled off the couch. (He had been coaching basketball so I knew he'd be dressed similarly.) I looked pretty, but almost like I wasn't wearing any makeup. It was perfect for bumming around and watching TV.
