  1. I need to get my arse to The Bay for the Illustrated Face Kit in Brown. *_* But chances are it will be sold out before then.

    This and That was a fun MES. 😉

  2. Cin

    oh my that brown face kit is just calling my name !
    all that glitters is my favorite eyeshadow of all time i think were meant to be!
    i hope i can still get my hands on this when it goes on sale for regular costumers :(

  3. This was available at The Bay in Canada as of July 4th!

    I love love the the brown face kit. Its perfect.

  5. The Face Kits are kind of nice, but I already have a few of the products in each of them.

  6. Loving the design of this collection!

  7. These face kits look interesting.. both the brown and the plum for me. I’m not so fond of lip product in a compact with powder items though. Still, they are attractive and the perfect no brainer pulled together look. Wonder if the quality is there for the LE eyeshadows. They undoubtedly will be sold out before I pause and wait for a quality evaluation. Snarky comment dat!

      Normally having pans of lip product in an otherwise powder palette is a deal breaker for me. But when I saw these in person yesterday, I discovered they have a plastic hinged flip guard over the lipsticks to keep them clean! Now I am back to lusting after the plum palette.

    I like the plum face kit but I’ve got Mocha blush and Syrup lipstick so I don’t think I’ll be picking this up. I like the idea though and I’d buy it if I was just starting out with make up.

  9. Rad

    Eeek I’m all about those palettes and brush sets. I thought i’d skip out on this collection because its not very exciting but tbh you can’t really go wrong with basic colours!

  10. I’m on an extended holiday/birthday mini vacation and I had an extremely good time at Nordstrom’s today. Was able to get my mini haul before the crowds come in this weekend. One of my purchases included the Mac brown face kit because it allowed me to sample a few things collectively from Mac that I didn’t want at its regular size or price. I get to sample the Melba blush (lovely), myth and ravishing lipsticks. Fortunately the eye palette complements my nutmeg colored skin. All that glitters is one of my favorite e/s and I’ll use this duplicate for my travel kit. IMO, the other kits include the minerialized eyeshadows which are below par. Ditto the little brush kits. Nordstrom’s has a lot going on today and you must use your Nordstrom’s card to get the pre anniversary special.

    I am actually interested in both face kits surprisingly….I don’t have any of the colors and have been interested in a few of them for a while, and enjoying neutrals lately. Glad I used to work at Nordy’s, and have a credit card, haha.

  12. After reading this post I will definitely go to buy brown colors colors. simple amazing choice of colors.

  13. I do not need the pink lip bag, I do not need the pink lip bag, I do not need the pink lip bag… Trouble is I KNOW I’d wear the hell out of it! I already have similar colours though.

  14. Jen

    Not feeling I need any of this but I do love the little cover over the lipsticks. One up for that one, MAC!

  15. Love the colors hate the packaging! :( what’s with all the eyes?!

  16. Bella

    Christine, will you be reviewing these?

  17. Carolyn

    Are the face kits worth the splurge? Thanks

  18. Hello :) Can do some swatches for face kit? I want to see how’s the colour look like when apply on skin. Thanks much :)
