Honestly I was just gonna get the black fluidline ONLY! I found out they are still shipped to Austria, THANK GOD!!! after hearing they´re gonna be out of stock for a while in the US I was afraid of not getting them any more.

but there was a new MA working there, a guy (I never trusted male MAs before cause I thought, they don´t wear makeup themselves, so how can they know what a girl wants and needs *g*)

well he really took his time and explained everything to me. he was a real pro I could tell and he said he does mu for runway shows too so I wanted to know everything from him. at first I was wondering why he didn´t put anything on me. he put mu on himself which I thought was a little weird at first. but that way I could exactly see how and where he applied the color, which you can´t see when they put mu on YOU.

I left with:

Fluidline in Blacktrack

Cream Color Base in Hush

Pigment in Cornflower

Fake Lashes #9 + Duo adhesive

can´t wait to try out the fake lashes tomorrow and try to achieve a porn stark-like look. Lizzie´s pics definitely inspired me!! hope I don´t end up looking like a hooker


BUT: I saw in the little booklet that comes with the pigments that Cornflower is NOT eyesafe. do you guys think I can still use it? I wouldn´t wear it on my lower lids anyway, so it couldn´t get into my eyes anyway,right?

the MA seemed to be really professional and he said he likes to use it on models, so it can´t be THAT dangerous after all. and the color is so stunning, I don´t even want to return it. what should I do??

they can be used for anything! sometimes, i'll use naked in a clear lipgloss to get a nude look. or, i'll use it as a highlighter, etc.

nice haul! glad you had a good time and learned a lot!!

i would use all my piggies on my eyes if i wanted to use that color. just noton my lower lash line. i wouldn't use the overly glittery ones either, but that's because i don't like too much glitter anyways.

have fun experimenting with the porn star look! hehe. it took me a little experimenting to figure out how to do it. just use a lighter color on the inner lid and brow highlight, and then dark outer v and crease.

ok I couldn´t wait and tried out my new Makeup. man, those lashes were so hard to put on. took me like 15min. and I had to cut them cause they were too long on the sides. and somehow it still doesn´t look right, I think I might have to cut them shorter too

Face:

MAC Hyper Real

BB Creamy Concealer

MAC Bronzing Powder in Golden

MAC Iridescent Pressed Powder in Belightful

Eyes:

MAC Fluidline Blacktrack

MAC Fake Lashes #9

MAC Pigment Cornflower

Lips:

MAC Clear Lipglass

well I still don´t know how to do the "classic" porn star look. guess I don´t have the right colors to do that, I don´t own any black or grey e/s or bright pink lipglosses. so this was the best I could do with what I have.

and the Cornflower Pigment wasn´t the best choice either. looks too 80´s to me *lol*

tell me what you think!

Nice haul, Arielle, and that MAC MA sounds awesome!
I've never heard of watching someone else do their makeup, but it does make good sense because you can see what they're doing instead of wondering. BTW, you are one gorgeous girl! Love your pics!

That pigment looks really good on you! And the whole look is really nice too, especially those fluttery lashes!

It's always nice when you have a good experience buying MU, that MA sounds cool!

thanks to all of you girls


it means a lot to me if you say I did a good job cause I think y´all doing a GREAT job on your makeup!!!

to Anya:

I know how awesome it is to have a patient MA. I have such a hard time to decide what I want to I feel sorry for all the MAC MAs I have ever asked for advice. but they already know me at the 2 counters we have here and know what I like and don´t like. so it´s actually easier for them now to recommend me colors or products.

the one girl who is always there when i am there wasn't there today (she said last week when i was there "oh you are here all the time" lol) at least it was slow in there this afternoon (that's why i pick the afternoons to go it's generally not busy at all)so i can sit and look. but i usually know what i want when i walk in the door. Now i am sitting here trying to figure out what i am buying next week lol

That is a gorgeous look on you
I love my cornflower pigment! I always use it on my eyes and I've never had a problem. But use it at your own discretion. When I go clubbing I usually wear my cornflower loud and proud

I see this is an older thread, before my time. Thanks for sharing and thanks for bumping it. I'm loving the Cornflower on you, Andrea. When are we gonna see that again?
