I got & love Princess Incognito & Friend Like Me. FLM is a very pale pink beige fleshy nude but with enough pigment that it doesn't look crazy on. I love it done sheerly. PI is a slight pinky rose warm terracotta shade. That is all I bought. The tubes are pretty.

I want PI too and yet Rajah, quad Jasmine. And maybe Brronzing Powder, but I don't know - It may be too dark for me, hmmm...:rolleyes:

I got the advance e-mail, but when i looked at the whole collection i went, "Enh". The only thing that doesn't look like something i already have - or that i don't want since i'm not a bronzer girl - is the eyeshadow palette. But i haven't seen enough swatches to decide.

I've been cheating on MAC and getting stuff from other brands. Lipsticks from Melt and Coloured Raine. And several e/s palettes because they were so cheap and on sale. For some reason, i went for really bright palettes, rather like the MAC Art one. i haven't even tried them on yet. I need to see if they irritate my eyes like Wet'n'Wild shadows, which are unwearable for me - make my eyes feel like they're on fire. But for $12 on sale, i figured i'd take a chance.

So, if anyone gets the Jasmine 9X eyeshadow palette, i am eager to see your swatches.

I got it, but sent it back. I have no swatches, apologies.

In my opinion, this highlighter is too dark for fair skin tones and too yellow/gold. It works good with olive tones.

sorry i have to disagree

HL should be somewhat lighter, brighter than your skin tone. I think it is pretty BUT definitely more for medium/darker skin tones and especially warmer ones like someone mentioned. i love bronze/golden shades but i do not think this particular one compliments nw15

I agree with Monsy and Seven of Nine. That's not a highlight on you; it's better suited for NC25-35 depth skintones (either yellow/golden or olive undertones). A pale rosy champagne would work better on you.

Ehhh agree to disagree. I like it on myself applied lightly. Definitely could build it up more when I have a tan though. It reminds me of Prosecco pop from the Jaclyn hill face palette

that is prettier than i expected


The colors in the palette are pretty. However, I used it today & was not happy with the quality. I found too many colors were either dry & dusty or lots of fallout. I used UD primer. Perhaps my expectations were too high and/or my patience lacking. That's my opinion anyway. Others may feel quite different about it.

I am glad I sent mine back.

Literally, I like everything and everything is great in make-up :cool:

I returned mine as well although I didn't have the chance to swatch it (can't return it here if it's used). I just felt like I had tons of dupes for them already so I bought the melt gemini palette and smoke sessions instead :rolleyes:

Same here and exactly the same reasons.

That's the reason why I didn't buy it. Btw, the highlighter looks nice on you.


I got Friend Like Me and Rajah lipsticks. Usually I don't go for colors like Rajah but it looked very stunning and bold. I was tempted by A Whole New World but I have way too many similar colors and I'm trying to not "repeat" shades. Friend Like Me is such a lovely mauvey/pink nude lipstick, I couldn't resist.
