Not so impressed



I wasn't very impressed with the Ungaro, Cremesheen, & Suite Array collections... I finally got to check them all out yesterday. I was saving my trip to the mall for when Ungaro launched which was yesterday. I managed to get two lipsticks. Pure Rose from Ungaro which I'm liking more and more everytime I wear it and Creme d'Nude which I don't like very much. I never try tester lipsticks on cuz I think it's gross even when they offer to clean them... So I usually swatch everything on my hand. Creme d'Nude went on very sheer on the my hand, but it goes on pretty chalky on the lips. Because it's not so incredibly sheer on the lips, it's almost too light... But maybe I can see if I can work with it so I don't have to return it cuz I love nude lippies.





I didn't swatch the two things from Suite Array cuz those are gifts I bought for a friend's birthday. I'm going broke buying 3 birthday presents! Anywho, it's the Sweet Liason duo and the Spare Change pearl glider. Both are beautiful! I personally wouldn't buy pearl gliders for myself cuz my liners usually smudge like crazy unless they're waterproof, but they are very creamy and soft.

I'm debating whether or not to get the eye shadow palette from the Manish Arora collection. I wouldn't get anything else cuz I'd never use it. The palette is the thing I'd use the most... But most of the colors I'm still not so sure I'd use on a daily basis or anything even close to that... I don't have any of the colors in the palette though which is a good thing.

i agree with you.The lipcolor is a bit too light but you can work it out with a lipliner or by layering with another darker/deeper lipcolor

As for the manish palette, i am wondering the same question. I know it would sell out quickly but like you i don't have any of the colors and i am wondering how often will i really wear them?

then i also missed the c-shock collection and this might be the opportunity to get some of those vibrant colors

i was really disappointed with the last few collections too! i went to my MAC expecting to buy everything from the ungaro collection but not =[ the colors are so sheer! suite array is super sheer too i think drug store e/s are more pigmented then those!

That lipstick looks like Myth.. i recently got the myth lipstick.. I use it to mix colours with other lipsticks for different effects..
you can also use it as a lip erase may be??

but those 2 collections are Not out in Australia yet.. so haven't seen the colours in real life..

hi lily! actually, i HAVEN'T seen any surgeries yet. it sucks! there is one hospital that always has c-sections! well, when my partner and i made it there, we had just MISSED it! i think we're the only ones that haven't seen a surgery there. everyone that went there after us saw one or two c-sections!! that's always on my goal sheet, though. we have a paper we give our instructor at the hospital and they always ask us what we want to see. that is always my goal! maybe i'll get lucky one day! lol.

pure rose doesn't look rosy but it looks good on you. does it seem more rose or pink in real life?
