    Last beauty item you bought and RETURNED?: MAC SW e/s in BRIGHT FUTURE

    The BRIGHT FUTURE e/s…I purchased it, then changed my mind about the e/s but I never touched it. So when I go to the MAC counter to return the e/s one MUA says in a loud voice, OH! guess we do have one BRIGHT FUTURE e/s left!… and about 3 heads turned asking to have it…geez!

  40. aradhana

    loved: ‘in the red’ revlon matte lipstick
    hated: ‘aubergine’ revlon matte eye shadow (not v good colour payoff…)
    returned: haven’t in a long time. i think its wasteful when the product has to be binned, even if it is unopened, so i try to make sure i really want something. and if a product doesn’t work out for me, i pass it on to a friend or relative who it does work for.

  43. hi

    Last beauty item you bought and LOVED?: L’Oreal Wear Infinite Eyeshadow Quad in Out of the Blue
    Last beauty item you bought and HATED?: MAC Greensmoke eyeshadow – it was so poorly pigmented with lots of glitter and fallout. I also expected it to be my HG olive shadow, but it was just a nasty greenish grey! I realized recently though that if I overlay it on the lid with the teal-blue shade from my Out of the Blue quad, it turns into a true forest-olive green :D
    Last beauty item you bought and RETURNED?: MAC Slimshine in Grenadine. The MUA said it was a sheer raspberry red, but on me it appeared an opaque fuschia! It was nice, but it wasn’t the color I wanted and I needed a new black liner, so I exchanged it for MAC Powerpoint in Engraved.

    Last beauty item you bought and RETURNED?: Studio Sculpt Concealer NW20, I needed NW15, but the MA swore up and down I didn’t. I so did … Talk about yellow.
