I went to MAC first thing this morning and got a few things:

New Vegas skinfinish

Shimpagne skinfinish

#187 brush (expensive!)


Now I am debating whether or not I should get Stereo Rose. Part of me wants to and maybe I will return New Vegas. I didn't get a chance to try them on while I was there since I was in a hurry. What do you guys think? I am an NC30.

LOL! how do you like stereo rose?
the 187 brush is great because it picks up a bit of the color and you can then buff the color/shimmer

but if you use it for your foundation, the MA said that the skin finishes can be used with a wet brush and it won't ruin it like wet brushes mess up regular shadows. they go on brighter or something when used with a wet brush though. so if you use it with your foundation then the skinfinish, it's ok.

Thanks for the heads up! I am trying to use up all of my BE foundation and will go back to using StudioFix. I like to mix it up a bit. I can't wait for tomorrow to put on my makeup for work.

I am wondering if I should add a skinfinish to my MAC birthday list... The only question is (and I feel really dumb asking this) what are the skin tone "grades" like NC40 etc? How do I know what I am?

I have heard people talking about it, but I have no idea what that means...

You definitely should. They are awesome and I usually get more excited about eye products than face ones.
To determine what your skin tone is, go to the counter and they can test out what foundation color works best for you. You can also try the skinfinishes there and see which one you like better.

I LOVE Stereo Rose! :icon_love Great haul! The MAC 187 brush is totally worth it, IMO. It's the BEST applicator for the Skinfinishes.

sorry for butting in on your thread Marisol..

I've never tried Skinfinishes before but y'all seem to love them. Do ye think they would they be too shimmery for daytime wear??

I :icon_love the Skinfinishes!!! Yea, if you saturate your brush with water or Fix +, you get awesome metallic color payoff. For a more natural daytime look, you can use 'em dry.
So today would have been my 1 year anniversary w/ my BF.
I decided to go on a shopping spree rather than wallow. Here's the damage:

New Vegas skinfinish

Shimpagne skinfinish

Gold Deposit skinfinish

Porcelain Pink skinfinish

Metal Rock skinfinish

Blitz & Glitz f/l

Non Conformist f/l

Vellum e/s

Studio Tech NC25

Pressed Powder NC20

brush cleaner

Thanks guys. I'm getting better re: the bf situation. We still talk all the time, but I've been really sad regardless. Anyways, I've been working on distracting myself!

But anyhow.....

Originally Posted by Marisol So its ok to get the skinfinishes wet? It wont damage them? Yup, you won't damage them at all! Try it out on a night when you're going clubbing or to a bar -- you'll get amazing color payoff! I think I'm gonna play with them tonight. :icon_love
