The pinks palette made me reminisce about my first MAC purchase (when I was like 11 lol) which was Yogurt and Swish. And my first MAC lipstick was B Cup. I wore such fun colors back then!

Great post, Elle! Your MAC palettes are gorg!

This might be a silly question, but where did you get the blank palettes from?

Thanks Elle! I love your collection!!

Looks amazing, Elle!
It sucks though that MAC just changed it so that you can't Back To MAC the eyeshadows without the metal pans.

You can ask for them at any MAC store (not counter) or order them over the phone.

Hi Elle~

I just watched your You Tube video featuring the purple smokey look [very lovely :)] When you said you worried about getting wrinkles around your eyes from tugging on them in order to apply your liner, I remembered a tip.

I once saw a eyeliner tutorial in which a girl used a Q-Tip to gently stretch the skin on her eyelid before she applied her liner. Instead of pulling her skin (with the Q-Tip) at the outer corner of the eye she went slightly beyond it (below where her eyebrow ended). It looked much gentler than tugging on it with a finger. I know this might add a few seconds to one's beauty routine, but it might be well worth it (considering it could decrease fine lines and wrinkles in the future).

It would be cool if you tried it on your own and if it works for you, then you could consider adding it to your routine. I've tried it, and while it takes some getting use to, it does ease the stress on the delicate skin around the eye.

P.S. If it's just too complicated, try gently pulling on the outer corner of your upper lid using your ring finger (instead of your index or middle finger). The ring finger has the least amount of force/pressure.

Here's a link to the tutorial that illustrates what I'm talking about!

Sorry for the confusion-she uses the Q-Tip on top of the eye (in her video) I've tried it on the outer part (like I described in my post) so I don't smudge my eyeshadow. I think either way would work though.

kath on January 5, 2009 at 3:37 PM said...

do you know if i can buy a 4 eye shadow palette in a 'normal' MAC store? i've heard some people saying that i could only get them at a MAC pro store and some other people saying that the 4 eyeshadow one is avaliable everywhere and 14 one it's just avaliable at a pro store.
and that was confusing lol

i know this is a mac palette. but where can I get an urban decay palette??

Pretty in Pink on January 6, 2009 at 9:36 PM said...

@ resham
trace gold is a very pretty gold shimmery blush and some use it as a bronzer or highlighter. it needs to be applied with a light hand, in my opinion, otherwise the shimmer of it will make your pores look huge!

Pretty in Pink on January 6, 2009 at 9:37 PM said...

@ kath
my store is not a pro store and i am still able to buy palettes including 4-pan palettes there. you could call your local store to double check before you go.

Pretty in Pink on January 6, 2009 at 9:38 PM said...

@ anonymous
you can get the urban decay palette at sephora, ulta, or any urban decay counter in department stores

Erica on January 8, 2009 at 10:19 PM said...

janniedoll77 on January 16, 2009 at 3:15 AM said...

my favorite palettes are the brown and pink and purple ones and the blush palette too. :)

it's fun watching your youtube videos. especially the makeup collection one. it's very cute and probably one of the most organized i've ever seen. i also liked the 10 products i regret buying video because that saved me some money from buying a bobbi brown eyeshadow. :)
