I tried out Fresh Green Mix yesterday over Cash Flow paint pot – interesting combo. I think I will try the same duo today, but over a green base instead. I LOVE Dainty – anyone who thinks it isn’t pigmented enough for deeper skintones is nuts. Totally popped on my cheeks (I’m NC30) with EASE. I used the 129 brush (finally have a use for it!), and it worked like a dream.

I used Cash Flow paint pot on lid, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow duo (solid side) (LE) all over lid, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow duo (marbled side) (LE) on outer crease and lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow to highlight, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow duo (solid side) (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Dainty mineralize blush on cheeks. I wore Fast Thrill lipstick (LE) with Politely Pink lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Cash Flow = Copper (metal) pigment; Fresh Green Mix (solid side) = Bitter; Fresh Green Mix (marbled side) = Sumptuous Olive; Dainty = Dame (eh…) Fast Thrill = Bombshell; Politely Pink =

  3. jade

    Looks really fresh and clean with a little pop of color, awesome!

  4. Wow! Thanks Christine! Sooo gonna get Dainty now! This combo really looks great on you. You’re making me want Green Mix too. =P Thanks again!

  5. Dainty looks lovely on you. 😀 I think I may not be using a dense enough brush for this blush though. I’ll try again. It’s too gorgeous!

    love the fresh, spring feel to it. Great work

    Christine, you look great as always. Are you trying a new foundation? You look different (not a bad thing, different, but beautiful as always!)

    I Have a question! Did you have to layer a lot of dainty on? Or is tht with just one or two swipes? I keep hearing that it’s not as pigmented, and we’re both NCS.. but I’m NC42 so just wondering!

    • Hi Pquanda,

      Nope, this is same ol’, same ol’ Studio Fix Fluid! I didn’t have to layer it on a lot at all. I am NC30, and I just patted it on lightly using the 129 brush twice (but once gave me good color, I just intensified it a touch with the second layer).

    I agree – isn’t Dainty great? When I swatched it on my hand I was undecided. I had the MA put it on me & when I saw myself in natural light I was really impressed! Needless to say I bought it the next day.

    I’m looking for a post that has something to do with eye shadows in every line. I’m not sure if there is one or this would be the first.

    Ok, my story is this. Ever since I got into MAC (since Barbie line), every limited ES that I get in each line I want them to be together as in these are the combinations of es I used.
    I want to know if it’s just me?
    I want to organize my es collection by line. Is this something that can be done?
    I feel like all es that I get from every collection goes all together and nothing else.
    Sorry, this is long but I need YOUR HELP. Thank you so much.

    Pretty! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new blushes! I have Dainty and it is awesome! I actually only bought Gentle and Dainty but I love the texture, smoothness, and intensity of these blushes so much I’m going to buy more!

  12. Oh Dainty so so perfect on u 10/10!!U looking absolutely GORGEOUS!!


  13. lala

  14. I love this look!!! You’re making me want to get fresh green mix Christine! =/ Baadddd! LOL

  15. Chloe

    You look wonderful like always! I’m SO going to buy these colors now. Thanks, Christine!

  16. Liz

    I LOVE this look!! I bought two shadows from this collection, but I have to take them both back! They irritated my eyes so bad I couldn’t stand it! This has never happened with MAC before!

  17. HoTpiNk ButteRfLy

    What would be a good substitute for Cash Flow paint pot? It is impossible to find anymore :(

  18. Connie

    I bought merrily, love thing, pleasantry, and lovejoy the other day. I’m thinking about trading love thing and merrily for either dainty, warm soul, gleeful, or nuance. What do you think I should get? I’m NC30 as well (:

  19. What a great look, I have both fresh green mix and dainty so will have to try this out!

  20. Vivien

    Gorgeous as always!! Do you EVER look bad!??

  21. Stacey

    Eek! Gorgeous!!!

  22. reese

    Oh my! Dainty looks sooo good on you!
    I got Dainty and even though it lightly shows up on me, it just too pretty to return….and besides, it looks pretty chillin’ on my vanity. lol!

  23. dutchdaantje

    This is so beautiful! You look absolutely radiant in this Christine!
    I wore this combination (Fresh Green Mix / Dainty) last Friday and I was so happy with it 😀 Very nice to see you’ve chosen this too 😉
    (I used Solar White as highlight)
    Hugs, Daantje

  27. Sash

    I love this!
    So radiant!

  28. You look like you’re glowing! =] I love it

  29. Mara

    I love this look and decided to wear it today! I don’t have Cash Flow so instead used Pastorale pigment… It looks great, just not as bright and fresh. I totally need to get my hands on Cash Flow!

  30. dee

    well if that’s the case you can give sea & sky and odd couple to me :)
