Botched Up "Her Fancy" Face Chart Attempt FOTD

I felt like playing with Antiquitease this morning and I was a bit lazy so instead of thinking up how I’d use the colors I just snatched a face chart from MAC, printed it out, and went to work.

Sadly it came out nothing like I had planned and I was probably better off doing my own FOTD rather then using a face chart for the look!

The “Her Fancy” Face Chart is simple enough to follow but the end result is nothing like the photo sadly!

Her Fancy Face Chart is available from at MAC’s website

The good news is I’m more in love with Mi’ Lady than I was yesterday! It’s such a wicked little color and quite deceiving in the pot! I am a tad disappointed that it’s not the red I was hoping for but I’m still quite properly chuffed that it’s such a lovely shimmering orange/copper color!

It reminds me of a subdued firespot (MAC Moonbathe) with beautiful silver sparkle!

It’s just gorgeous!

Sadly, this is a botched up Face of the Day, my apologies but I wanted to share it with you anyway!

MuseTV Presents: MAC Antiquitease Color

MAC Antiquitease Color popped up in stores today and of course the Muse walked as fast as her little legs could carry her to get her haul of Antiquitease goodies!

The entire collection is quite lovely with very few misses and quite a few hits!

I ended up purchasing the lot of mineralized shadows duos, one lipglass, one lipstick, all the pigments, the new fluidline, and a plushlash!

The shadows are stunning and these are as great as the Flashtronic shadows (sorry I had a brain fart while filming the video and I had said the last shadow collection with mineralized shadows was Rushmetal! Apologies icon smile I had meant Flashtronic!).

Almost all of the shadows have a gorgeous bold silver veining that runs through the shadow and have quite a dose of shimmer. I’ve already applied some on my eye and that silver veining contains quite a healthy pop once your brush connects with it! Gorgeous!

Mi’ Lady appears to be my favorite of the bunch so far because of it’s ultra bold red and purple coloring. Yum! I’m eager to create a look with this! Don’t let the red fool you though as the color actually shows almost orange on the the eye! It’s very interesting color!

Family Silver is going to a be nice base shadow or highlighter for me as the colors are lighter in this shadow as compared to the others in this collection.

Silversmith and Engaging are both beautiful colors as well. Silversmith is a wonderful duo of silver and gold while Engaging has a very pretty peachy pink color and a bronze.

The only duo that has me wondering whether I am loving it or not is Earthly Riches. It’s a bit of a darker duo and I’m unsure how it’ll look but I grabbed it anyway at the risk of it selling out before I can make my mind up (I can always swap it off later if I hate it!).

The star of the lipglasses and the lipsticks were the too outrageously bold red colors offered which were Red Romp and Queen’s Sin. I’m not one for red lipstick but Queen’s Sin was calling my name when I laid eyes on it! It’s quite a nice shade of red and perfect for the Holiday Season! Royal Romp is going to look amazing over it! I was in high debate whether to grab the Royal Romp Lipglass because it reminded me so much of Boundless In3D lipgloss but turns out that Royal Romp is a more subdued maroon when compared to the brighter, truer red of Boundless!

The pigments are all quite nice and I’m loving Your Ladyship best as it reminds me of a beefed up Provence with tons more shimmer.

Gold Stroke is a nice brown with bits of gold swirled in. The website says it’s bits of red but I’m seeing gold. Sweet Sienna is a grey color with silver shimmer and again I have to disagree with the website as it says it’s a brown color with grey pearl but I don’t see any brown in it!

Finally I grabbed Uppity Fluidline which is gold in color. This will make a great base color and is perfect for the holidays and will look great combined with some of my other gold collections!

Overall, I’d say the collection is utterly wearable and very pretty! I’m loving all of it! I did skip on many of the lipglasses and lipsticks because they were just too nude in color for me so those in my opinion aren’t worth the purchase however everything else is a go and the Muse says get to your counter and grab some of this before it’s gone!

The holiday collections are full on and more collections will be popping up very soon! To keep you nice and organized here’s what you can expect from MAC in the next few weeks:

Stila Smoky Palettes

Hello World!

You may recall me mentioning that the Stila site had undergone some construction and soon after it returned they had a little sale with 20% off (which is ongoing until the 21st of this month)!

At the time nothing of too much interest was wowing me from the site but I did happen upon the new smoky palettes and decided I might as well snatch them up with the discount.

I had already purchased the original smoky eye palette some months ago and was pretty pleased with it so I dove in and purchased the two newest colors.

I’m going to say you don’t need these unless you wanna splurge a little. There isn’t anything to wow you about the palettes and you don’t need to rush off and purchase them right away (wait for the Stila Warehouse Sale).

The pro side of the purchase is that the shadows are very pigmented and the liner cakes these come with are quite good however you really don’t absolutely have to have these.

I’m just diseased thus they ended up in my stash of cosmetics icon wink

I do give them a good solid review because Stila makes some very good shadows and you get quite a nice palette for the price! With the discount I only paid $32 a palette.

If you’re a minimal girl or you don’t like alot of nonsense when it comes to your eye makeup these are perfect. They do exactly what they promise to do which is create an elegant smoky eye look that’s perfect for the day or evening.

These are also pretty darn nice if you have a difficult time achieving a smokey eye look. They also happen to have a little button you can press that allows you to listen to a tutorial recording giving you step by step instructions on how to apply the shadows.

Pretty nifty eh?

L@@K The Muse was even thoughtful enough to make you a video to show you how the talking tutorial works!

Overall these are a nice edition to any collection and they make eyeshadow application a snap on the days that applying makeup seems too much of an ordeal!
