    The magenta cool eye palette. I've tried 3 or 4 times to make this palette work for me. I hate the lustres and this palette doesn't seem to blend well. I'm returning it.

    Pearlizer, I bought hundred degrees when it first came out. When I first applied it, it looked smooth and sparkly, very pretty. 2 hours later I looked like a disco ball. I have seen others look lovely wearing it. It may just be my wicked dry skin. I can't get away with much shimmer on the face.

    Last year's lilac MAC e/s pallette (the purple colors--they all suck basically )
    D'Bohemia e/s
    Blue pigment--I'm still trying to figure out how to make this work
    Starting to regret Metal Rock....is it too glittery for me? Hmm!

    I would have to say Samoa Silk e/s. I hardly shows up on me at all and imo, it's not that impressive of a color.

    I hated Jasmine! It made me look so jaundiced. I also dislike the Adorn Shimmersouffles. Oh, and any Pro long wear (old formula) colors (not a rush buy, but still a huge regret).

    Just coming back to say that as much as I disliked the pearlizers from Belle Azure, I freaking love the new ones. The ever opal one is just so damn gorgeous. It is my favorite purple shade ever. On to ones I should have passed on...........I really dislike my glitter liners. I bought them last year and what a waste. The glitter does not come out like it should and I only get one or two pieces of glitter with each swipe. Then, because I have put on so many layers to get it to show up, the liner dries out and flakes off. I have recently discovered some cheap drugstore liners by Splash Cosmetics and these rock. Lots of glitter, and they stay put forever. At $6 canadian as opposed to $18.50, a much better deal. Oh yeah, the tube is twice the size of the MAC one. Sorry MAC, maybe you can figure out a way to get more glitter with each swipe.

    Probably Gorgeous Gold (I have too much yellow in my skin already) and I had to have Deep Truth and it's just like a Stila shade I have. Also, I had to have the Diana collction quads and I swapped one and never use the other.

    The blush doubles. I had and swapped away 2 of them. I wasn't impressed with the shades and ended up not liking the split pan concept after all.

    Anti-Establishment Eyeshadow. It could look pretty for smokey eyes, but I usually just use more natural colors now. Every so often I'll blend it with Black Tied, but other than that I don't think that I needed it.

    coquette, i thought it would be a good color just to have cause it seems so neutral, but it barely shows on my skin, yuck.....and i'm debating on coppering and mystical mist as well.

    For me there's a lot. I mean it's different now. I used to love and so attracted by bright colors. and now, after a year or two I find out a never wear them. And I always rush to buy all MAC LEs for fear that they will be gone soon. Afterall a lot of them are not that high quality and very gimmicky. I ended up swapping away a lot of MAC LE products.
    Now I usually wait for reviews and consider practicality before I buy... that ends up saving a lot of money!!!!

    Ooh why, i thought you changed your mind about them recently or something and liked them now? I've just been drooling over the Ornamentalism ones and feel like i really want them so maybe you could say something that'll save me some money!

    So many I can't count. LOL. But most MAC LEs retain their value, even used. I was able to sell some gently used MAC pink eye and neutral eye palettes for more than I paid for them on ebay.

    I whish I'd have waited for the new perlizers because they are so much nicer than the Belle Azure shades.

    That's the thing isn't it, even thoguh we know Mac has so many collections out and we'll always find something we like better/same, we can't envision that far ahead or be patient and think that we'll find something else soon in the future collections!
