“She is the dolly from the attic. She’s Gretel from Hansel & Gretel who knows a little more than she did before she went into the woods.” – Gregory Arlt

Face: Strobe Cream – massaged into the face. Face and Body foundation – a sheer application to even out skin tone. Dame & Well Dressed powder blush & Seedy Pearl eye shadow – blended to create a healthy glow on the apples of cheeks.

  1. What is this Redhead MSF they speak of!!!! And Gold Dark pigment?? Eek!

    • Helene

      I´m sooo curious too.

    • Tanya from Oz

      yes, yes. and the ‘girlboy’ brow set….interesting indeed!!!

      • whitnee

        That product (the Girl Boy Brow Set) is currently available. It seems like it’s just a light brown color. Nothing special. I am curious about the haircolor MSFs though. Interesting to put something related to hair color on your face. I wonder if it helps your facial tone compliment your hair color.

        • Brow Set can be really useful if you have brows that don’t stay in place – I love Clear Brow Set, personally.

          I heard something through the grapevine that there might be a winter launch where these would fit, otherwise you’ll probably see ’em in the spring.

    • I imagine it’s something we’ll see in Spring 2009. I saw Dazzlelash back in February, and I believe that is coming out pretty soon. Sounds like a blonde/redhead/brunette theme, though!
