    Something that I find a bit weird happened to me. I haven't used my MAC eye shadows in a while now after I bought my Sleek palettes, but I went to Korea and at the tax free I went to the MAC section because I love looking at all the different colors to see if I want anything^^ haha. And I found two eyeshadows that I bought..and I really loved them and used them when I was in Korea. So today I thought I would put them with my other MAC shadows, I have all my MACs in a separate box. Anyway I saw that one of the colors I bought at the taxfree looked a lot like one of the shadows I already had in my box and I checked and it was the exact same :rofl: I really can't believe it, but I guess I really love that color...^^
    It's called Pink Venus Lustre A 39^^

    Yeah I really like it too, but I usually never wear it^^ well that might have something to do with the fact that I've bought like 20 eyeshadow palettes recently, but let's not talk about that..:buzz:

    Anyone have both Blushbaby and Pink Swoon blush?? I want to compare the two.. I love Blushbaby but from what I've seen on people, Pink Swoon looks like a subtle rosy glow, which is what I love. TIA!

    About 9 months ago my Aunty bought me a MAC blush from New York, it was part of the mineralize collection called 'Love Rock' I absolutely adore it, it's really pink, which is good for my colouring, but shimmery because of the minerals too. Has anyone seen this colour in the UK? It's almost run out now and I need to replace but I can't find it anywhere :-( not even on ebay. Or can anyone recommend another bright pink blush?

    I really need some new MAC make up so think I'm going to get my make up done next weekend before I go out and use the £25 redeeming money on some new products. What is dollymix blush like?

    omg i didnt know about the Liberty line..it seems like Liberty is in a collaboration frenzy!
    im a bit confused though, i can see the Liberty pieces on the US website but when I go to UK i cant see it? It just seems a bit odd?

    thank you! Just checked out that colour on the website, the pink looks the same, but love rock had shimmery nude colours blended in rather than purple. I may have to take what I have left of my love rock and compare....may get the dollymix if not. Though i do love the shimmer of the mineralize....

    What's the difference between 213 and 239 (eye shadow brushes)? I have 213, but I am considering buying the 239. When I look at them both at the MAC booth in my city, I think they're pretty similar. But what do you think? Is it worth it to buy a 239 when I have a 213?

    Thanks :smile:

    ^ For personal use I think you could get away with just the 213. It also depends what you are using the brush for.. Is it for applying colour to the lid or is it for blending?

    I'm using it for applying colour to the lid. I use the 217 for blending. But cool, I'll keep the 213... And thanks :smile:

    hey guys I want to ask about Pink Swoon blush
    I've been told before that it is the perfect blush to get that rosey cheeks look..but the girl working in MAC told me that Pink Swoon would be too drastic/too much for everyday use. and she suggested other bronze/peachy blushes which I HATED.
    although when I tried Pink Swoon it actually looked soft..:/
    does any of you use it for mornings?
