ok so im new to the whole mixing medium world. i seen how mac has liquid n a cream one then one for matte finish...uggggh soooo much!! like which one is best for what?

 

from the pp collection the only interest i have is with vintage selection buuuuut i need to see a swatch!!

They have:

- a water based which is just your standard mixing medium to apply eyeshadows/pigments/whatever you want wet

- an alcohol based just for the body (I think this will last longer?)

- a face&body for duh face&body:p

- an eyeliner version to make eyeliner

- a lash version to make mascara's.

There also are the matte and shine mixing mediums and they told me they work well to create a matte or shine effect and not necessary to use shadows wet. For example they would use the shine on the cheekbones were you normally apply highlighter to create a nice shine effect. I hope this helps somewhat. I'm not an expert, but this is what I know about them. I only have the water based and eyeliner versions and really like those. I think those are the best to start with unless you want to do body painting or something.

Lets Skate! - Pale pink with pearlized pigments

Chilled On Ice - Frosted white gold

Vintage Selection - Frosted mid-tone peach

Let Me Pop - Frosted light copper

Antique Diamond - Frosted olive silver

Frozen Violet - Frosted purpled silver

Blackground - Black-grey with multi-colour

 

 

Vintage Selection sound nice but if it's the same shimmer ball formula I'll pass. I really want more matte bases. ;)

 

Nubile was to dark for me sadly but love of cream matte shade for us uber pale girls.

Vintage Selection has fewer glitters than Let's Skate. Took photos for comparison. The blurred shot shows how much more glittery Let's Skate is.

Great hunting skills Naynadine!  I am loving the looks of Frozen Violet, Antique Diamond and Vintage Selection the most.  The rest, if they are indeed perm, I may get around to snatching up later...

All the promo pics are showing the 242 brush (synthetic), but yet the info says 247 (mixed fibres)? Strange.

The only one that grabs me is Frozen Violet. But then I have a soft spot for greyish-purples.

Just added the two i don't have to my cart.

Looks to me like they aren't a new product. Just colour additions and a name change??? th_dunno.gif

I got Antique Diamond and Frozen Violet.

Wondering how the other shades are different from the ones we've seen before. I'm out of the Mac loop so maybe I missed something.

I find it interesting that they released so early online, and even more interesting that they're listed as p/p and not PLW p/p.  I'm a little confused, but I'm not gonna spend too much time thinking about it because this collection is a skip for me.

I'm always thrilled about early releases :-)

Thanks!!  

I like all the ones I thought I would.  Here is my list until I see how sparkly they really are. 

 

I like VS, Let Me Pop, Antique Diamond, Frozen Violet.

They seem less glittery? Well, less glittery or not or PLW or not, I'm not getting the same colours I already have.

Oh, me too!  It makes my heart go pitter-patter when I see a collection up early, lol.  Too bad I don't want anything from this one   nope.gif   Especially now that it seems this isn't even a new formula.  Oh well...More money for AG and the April collections!

I ordered Frozen Violet and I can't wait for it to get to me.  I want to try it with Moth Brown and Electroplate and Frost at Midnight and Hocus Pocus and.....th_happy1.gifAnd antique diamond will be perfect for Silver Birch.

I ordered Frozen Violet too.

 

Do you think that is the color used in the promo shot? Her eyelids look stunning.
