Do you have a “dream list”? I keep a list of MAC products I’d LOVE to buy, but I just haven’t (for assorted reasons – from budgeting/price to forgetfulness to all of the LE launches). When I hit up Nordstrom’s on Friday, my boyfriend tagged along and said he wanted to check out the new iPhone at the Apple store, but he ended up going to MAC and surprising me with several products from my “dream list.”

In my surprise gift:

  • Brush Cleanser
  • Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (in Medium Plus)
  • Mineralize Blush in Merrily
  • Fluidlines in Blue Peep, Rich Ground, and Shade
  • Mineralize Eyeshadow in Polar Opposite
  • Lipglass in Nymphette
  • Lipstick in Fast Thrill
  • Select Tint SPF 15 Foundation (NC35)
  • Brushes: 188, 189, 208, 239 (x2), 266

What’s on your “dream list”?

Temptalia Asks You

What is your favorite lipgloss of all time? What gloss could you just not live without?

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Yesterday, I picked up the few items that I purchased from Colour Forms (Tea Time & Gilded Green pigments and the Suncentered powder). I LOVE SUNCENTERED!! This is so gorgeous. I think I saw a few people mention it didn’t show up no them–I’m NC30, and it showed up PERFECTLY. It’s this gorgeous sunny peachy orange that goes on with a subtle sheen. I used the 129 brush to apply it, and I achieved to-die-for results. Really, I think this is gorgeous and flattering in a natural way. I suppose Nuance might be a decent dupe, though, with the same kind of feel and finish. Anyway, not disappointed with it in the least bit.

I also managed to stick to mantra of “practical shoes only.” I picked up those Nikes I talked about yesterday, and they are ridiculously comfortable. If they stay super comfy, I will definitely pick up a second pair (since they’re on sale) for when I’m through with these. (I’m one of those people who will stock up on their “staple” shoes, LOL; because you never know when they’ll be discontinued or whatever!)

Happy weekend all! What’s everybody doing today?

P.S. – That $50 gloss I purchased? NARS Orgasm gloss is a very close dupe – it’s not as luxe or as pigmented, but it’ll do when I run out. Nymphette is too light, and it’s not pink enough. Major Minor was nowhere near it.

I used Tea Time pigment (LE) on lid, Say Yeah eyeshadow (LE) on lid, Beautyburst eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer lid, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow to highlight, Rich Ground fluidline on lower lash line and upper lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower water line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Suncentered Colour Forms Powder (LE) on cheeks. I had Fast Thrill lipstick (LE) with Nymphette lipglass 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!

Tea Time = Chocolate Brown; Say Yeah = Motif (works for this look); Beautyburst = Brown Down; Femme-fi = Shroom; Suncentered = Peachykeen; Fast Thrill = Bombshell
