what a difference a swatch makes

You remember that all-psyched-up post about the Palace Pedigreed quad by M·A·C I did a few days ago? After seeing swatches on the web – not so psyched anymore. All too glimmery and too dark and too... party-ish. I need a good base for day make ups.

Here are some (at first sight) nice alternatives. Does anyone have any experience with any of those colors? Favs so far: Tete-a-Tint, Soba, Haux, Blackberry.


  1. I haven't tried any of these shades so I cannot help you, sorry!!!!
    have you tried the satin taupe? it's a fabulous base! they say it's velvety....

  2. I have seen that one, but it looked too much like Quarry to me. Hmm.

  3. If you like soft pink/purples, nocturnelle is really good :)
