Hello sweeties!! I wanted to pop in and say hello! Long time, no chat! I have done such a great job on my low-buy I didn't want to be too tempted by lurking around Specktra. But I'd love to jump back in on some challenges to help me shop my stash!
I unearthed a healthy collection of the MUFE Artist Shadows, so I may try to JUST use those this week, instead of defaulting to my go-to staples. As great as these shadows are, I really need to make them more a part of my every week makeup!
Any challenge or theme ideas for this week??
Nice to see you!
Hey Pixie. I don't have any challenge ideas I've just been trying to practice and use my palettes to see how I like them.
That's actually a good barometer to help me decide on these. I bought a few of the MAC palettes when they were on sale, (now they have been permanently reduced) but I hadn't had a chance to use them. I can't tell if it is me or if they are stiff and hard to blend. We'll see. I was just thinking about buying some of the MUFE singles.
I will ALWAYS have a spot in my makup-loving heart for MAC, but I HAVE to tell you.. these new MUFE Artist Shadows are on a whole other level! I actually have to make myself not pick up so much product with my brush because I'm so used to having to dig my brush and go back several times with my MAC and UD shadows sometimes to build up and blend my looks. I just want to get more familiar with the ones I have and use them more regularly. Instead of just using one or 2 and then defaulting to my usual blending, highlighting, and transition shades.
I completely undertand your frustration with the MAC palettes. I've found I have been mostly disappointed with any MAC pre-made palettes. Even if it's a great value per shadow, they HAVE to be travel-friendly and all-inclusive for them to be of use to me. If I have to grab other singles to make them work, then the efficiency of a pre-made palette is gone. If a pre-made palette doesn't make my life easier, I'd rather reach for things I KNOW 100% that I love! I have actually been having some fun with my stash pulling shadows I want to play with or try and building my own temporary palettes. That way I can always transition them and rotate new things in my temp palettes from my stash to spread the love.
Also... I see in your signature that you are looking for a BU Blazing Haute blush... I have one that I swear I've used maybe 3 times! If you want it. I can't imagine I'd miss it if I haven't reached for it more!
Wednesday I used Gucci Ocean Rhapsody quad with Givenchy le rouge lipstick in Brun Cachemire, Thursday was Chanel Tisse Vénitien and CL Just Nothing velvet matte lipstick.
I was thinking that TF Last Dance would usurp Burberry Gold no.25 as my favourite eyeshadow palette but I wore it today with NARS Rita and it's still in first place lol
Brightened me up!
