I am back . . but probably not for very long. Holiday season is back, and I, unfortunately work in retail. I lost my Heavenly Natural samples so sorry for not having any swatches. As for the MAC launches I haven't been buying much. I did though, purchase the Dazzle Lash mascara in both the brown and black color. People say it clumps or flakes . . . I have had no problem with it. It does clump if I let it dry completely between coats. I love it, but it is still in the "trial" period for me. The holiday collection is amazing if you have the money.. . .
Emanuel Ungaro seemed too plain for me. Only thing I possibly would consider is stark naken beauty powder. CremeSheen had some awesome colors, but again I have so much lip color that it would have been a waste of money. Manish Arora looked awesome! Unfortunately I didn't get to buy anything :( It was all sold out online when I got around to it. Sheer Minerals are nice, but I honestly use make up forever for foundation and I don't use powder/pressed powder foundation, and the mineralized eyeshadow/blushes are beautiful, but I bought all the ones from the electroflash collection so I just enjoyed looking at them. Metal Urge was/is too much like Metal-X from last year so, again a place to save money :)
