    list of hard to find/coveted items?

    Are there any lists floating around of generally hard to find (LE, etc) or coveted items out there? I'm looking at my stash, as I'm sure we all have from time to time, and I'm contemplating purging, and don't know how to guage whether an item is a swap or sell item. Logic would tell me that...

    Helium pigment is really chunky and frosty

    REALLY chunky and frosty...I typically don't mind the other ones, but Helium really takes the cake! It's pretty on though, so I'll make it work!

    Barbie collection dupes...

    Sounds like a lot of the Barbie collection is a dupe for items that are already in the regular line. Thought it might be helpful to make list for folks...offhand: Springtime Skipper e/s - looks a lot like Juxt e/s, it's only slightly darker, and juxt has just a hint more yellow base; swatched...

    my first FOTD, constructive criticism welcome!

    Please excuse the pics, I didn't have time to take them in the morning, so I did it when I came home at night. I swear, it looked prettier in person! I wanted to use some of the shades that haven't been given much love on the boards, so I used Rondelle, Rite of Spring, and Swan Lake. Thoughts...

    Different prices on the two Danse MSF's?

    I just noticed on my receipts - Glissade is ringing up at $24.00, and Lightscapade is ringing as $22.50. I made backup purchases today, at a different Nordstrom, and same thing - Glissade is 1.50 more. Not that it's a huge difference or anything, I just found it odd. Anyone else experiencing...

    Is it hard to get a Perverted Pearl quad?

    I've been wanting this bad, by the names of it, even though I know that Seedy Pearl is a perm color now. But that pre-made quad sounds so pretty. Is it worth my time/effort to try to find it? And should I pay big $$ for it?

    Shu Filagree shadows are sooooo gorgeous

    Who cares that the little gold filagree print doesn't go all the way through the product, the shadows are GORGEOUS. the only one I dont' like is the gold, but that's mostly because golds look like ass on my skin. Sepia is a clear winner - just gorgeous. and they're all so soft and silky...I'm...

    Taupe blush looks like mud on my cheeks

    Obviously, this wasn't made for someone with my skintone. I heard some MA's complaining about it, and they couldn't find anyone that it looked good on. One of them commented, "who blushes BROWN?" Anyways, SOMEone must be using is it being used, on what skintones? I know I'll never...

    Invite to "grand opening" party in Portland - anyone been to one of these?

    When the m/a gave me the invite, she said it was the big party with media, etc. Cocktails, hor d'eurves, etc. Are these fun to go to? I thought I read a post that said it was kind of not fun... If anyone has been to one, let me know! The invite was interesting looking - it's a regular MAC...

    I don't even want to know what the credit card slip said...

    At least I had almost $300 in gift certs, so my plastic isn't burned too badly... I went a little nuts from Lure/Bait/Hooked, and got more than I wanted. I got backups when I told myself I wouldn't (well, off into my "gift" drawer they go),got black tied when I said I wouldn't (but then I...

    I've committed a Mac sin, I think...

    I was going through my duffel bags of BNIB stuff (yes, bags, there's two, hee hee), and I realized that I have two MSF's I've never used - Petticoat and Naked You. I think having these items and 1) not using them, and 2) forgetting that I had them in the first place, are considered a major sin...
