M.A.C. Swatches: Shadows, Pigments, Lip/Lustreglass, Quad, Beauty Powder

Lily from requested swatches for the MAC Showflower Quad(Faintly Fleur, Prize Bloom, Leaflette, Rare Specimen) from May 2007 and I'm so sorry that I didn't get this up sooner! I've also swatched some MAC Glitters (Reflects Pearl, Reflects Blackened Red) and Pigments (Revved-Up, Dark Soul) which includes 4 colors that I got from trading with Jessie (Provence, Fairylite, Off The Radar, Sweet Sienna).

Also swatched are the single eyeshadows (Ricepaper, Glare, Era, Concrete, Pretty Twisted, Zone, Laven-Dah!, Electric Eel, Electro Sky, Purple Haze). For the lippies, I have swatches for the Dress Set: 5 Warm Lustre and Lipglass (Florabundance, Wonderstruck, Instant Gold, Spring Bean, New Flame). Last but not least, is the Beauty Powder/Loose in Dancing Light.

That's a lot of swatches, eh? Not as much work as swatching the 88-Color Palette though. That was quite the hassle!

Enjoy my labour! Okay, that sounded so wrong. Just read on.

thanks for the swatches! and your cat sounds sooo cute! is your cat declawed? i think if i adopted a cat, i'd want to get it declawed... but some people think it's inhumane. i don't know if it hurts them to get declawed...

Connie said...

You're welcome. ooh.. I've never heard of declawing before but I don't think it's necessary. you can just trim the nails and they'll happily make use of scratch pads or poles. I've never experienced having my cat claw up my furniture. She'd much prefer to "buff" her nails on her scratch pad.

p/s: I've looked up declawing and apparently it's an amputation which is painful and take quite some time to recover:
Besides, dogs are much more destructive when they're not properly trained. I've had a fair share of things destroyed by my dogs: underwear, calculator, watch, bicycle pedals, clothes, remote controls, phones, shoes, etc.

kewlies! love the comparisons! i've had similar experiences. however, one of my fav bases right now is a loreal hip paint. when i used a fluidliner as a base (dries down pretty dull)...ugh! not my cup of tea, especially since i used a horrible lustre shadow.. omg the fall out!

Connie said...

mazuien: Thanks :)

Kia: We don't have l'Oreal hip here and to bring them into the country would be just a few bucks difference to get a MAC product so I didn't really bother to get them. Yeah, that does happen sometimes depending on the types of colors and textures.

However, I only ask that you'd take a look at the FAQ page before asking a question.

Thanks a bunch!
