    Hi Christine,

    I know its not related to this post but didn’t know where to Ask this Q?

    I’m desperately looking for the Spiced chocolate quad, its all sold out in the D.C area,
    I called Gone But not Forgotten, plus customer service but they are closed.

      Hey! It’s still all over ebay! And not even for ridiculous prices. But I wouldnt know where to find it in a store since I live in Holland 😀

        have u checked the mac store in amsterdam? in Utrecht its already sold out long time ago! but i havent been to amsterdam yet :(

        • lovekills

          Thanks Iman and Maria for your suggestions.
          I debated on getting the quad, but bought Tempting all because of Sharp

          I will check ebay, but I called customer service I’m waiting to hear them, I’ll probably call back Monday as well.

    • I think really the only place you can try is eBay or just start calling random stores – probably ones in either middle of nowhere OR really popular areas (like Los Angeles, Miami, etc.) who might still have stock left.

      I went to the Mac pro store and they made a dupe Spiced Chocolate palette for me with Shroom, Coppering, Cranberry and Hand Written. I love it! Hope that helps!

    I wore it yesterday on my lips with Cherry Blossom lipglass from Cult of Cherry on top. I also had it on my cheeks with Soft Flame Beauty Powder :) So pretty!

    i can see a Striking evil queen makeup look about it :) some carbon on outercorners a bit of violet pigment inner with frost for highlight :)

    Noice :)

    Bing on lips with cul of cherry lipglass

    Grape pigment for contour

  4. I use it on my cheeks all the time now! It’s an awesome blush, especially if you are using blues on the eyes. I pair it with the Not So Shy lip stain as well.

    I keep meaning to try some other uses but I’m so happy with this one. *grin*

  5. on lips with sweetie cakes lipglass :) a nude eye, probably nanogold to highlight and on lid with blitz & glitz fluidline, black tied smudged over the liner. cheeks? hmmmm i’d go with gentle MSF blush :)
