    I love the pics! Thank you so much for them! They are really helpful! I am having a problem reading the tiny font on some of them, though. It would be a great help if the font was bigger. The white font is easier to read than the black font.

    Ohhh they’re so pretty! I like the mineralize eye shadows especially.

    Thanks again for the pictures! Now we only have to wait another two and a half weeks in Europe…

    Wow! You got a lot of stuff! I love your website. You take the best photos! These swatches are very helpful. I only got Northern lights and Global Glow so far, and will go back to get Thrills l/s. Thank you!

    I’m so jealous that you got all the pigments!

    I got gold mode p/m and a sample of copperized, I actually want Rushmetal as well. Nothing from flashtronic, but I got the warm pearlizer set and the indianwood paint pot.

    I was going back and forth with the cool pearlizer set, but my funds were low.

    • I’m a pigment addict, so I just had to! lol 😉

      You might want to ask the makeup artist at MAC for a sample of Rushmetal, they do give them out sometimes!

    Hey! Awesome haul. I like the clarity of your pictures! My haul included: northern lights MSF, goldspill MSF, gold mode p/m, copperized p/m and cocomotion p/m. Also, I got a sample of mauvement and quick frost.

    Hi Christine,

    Great haul, enjoy! And thanks a bunch for the pics/swatches – they were very helpful!

    Here’s my haul:

    RUSHMETAL (pigments):
    Gold Mode
    Off the Radar
    Quick Frost

    hmm…all 8 lol

    Northern Light MSF
    Global Glow MSF

    By Jupiter

    Perfectly pink l/g
    Electro-lush l/g

    Just a few questions:
    Since I know you are somewhere about a NC30, does Gold spill MSF show up as a highlighter only on you? (even if you get one with a lot of darker veins) and is it very glittery or glowy?

    By Jupiter – Mine is really glittery – is most of the glitter coming from the mid-tone veins (the taupey gold ones)?

    Mercurial – this one is pure glitter (with a hint of lilac) no matter what base I use, dry or wet – I’m guessing it’s from all the gold? – any tips on how to make more pigment show up with less glitter?

    Quarry – I might go back for this one – it looks pretty light – does it show up on your lids well? Is it very glittery? And does it show up mainly as an icy blue (or more olive/gold?) on your lids?

    Thanks so much!!

    • Wow, what a haul, Meme!!!

      Gold Spill is more like a highlight/glow on me, not TOO glittery though.

      Try using By Jupiter wet and see if that decreases the glitter amount.

      Hmm, the problem with Mercurial may just be that it’s naturally chunky in the glitter particles. Try swirling your brush around and then tapping it lightly to get excess off.

      Quarry wasn’t showing up THAT well on me, a little bit, but not enough to make me go WOW GOTTA HAVE IT!

    heyyy…im honesty a fan of yours! haha

    Just wanted to ask you…is the mineralize skin finish collection limited edition? or are they always available?

    i luuuuvvv this site, keep it up! :)

    I ended up getting Tectonic and Ether mineral e/s and Ether on me looks more black coz apparently, it has more black in its veining..maybe the color result depends on the veining?

    Also, is it worth having the Rushmetal pigment if I have Copper Sparkle already since the 2 seem so much alike? My friend gave me Copper Sparkle a few days after I bought Rushmetal and now I’m contemplating just exchanging Rushmetal for another item. My hesitation really stems from the fact that Rushmetal is obviously a LE color.

    • Hey Janis! Sometimes the color does depend on the veining – you might try picking up shadow from one part of the shadow versus swirling and picking randomly, to give you better color ersults.

      Rushmetal pigment, IMO, has a better consistency than Copper Sparkle, because Copper Sparkle is a bit chunky. However, in terms of color… they are quite similar.
