The palette was all I got for the Passion in Red Collection. Gonna wait for the Little Darlings that will be out on December. Lipgloss of Pigments? Mmm, decisions decisions...
First, she wanted to test the colours on my eyes without even taking off what I already had on. Worst I had on smokey black/grey eyes today. How on earth was I to see the colours properly without her taking any of my eye shadow off?
Then she used 2 colours out of the entire 6 colours and I do admit that the technique she used was not bad, she was either being stingy by applying very little and I could hardly see anything. It didn't strike me as anything great and truth be told, if I never had any interest in the palette she would have turned me right off. I wouldn't not have gotten the palette because of her! She failed to show me how gorgeous the colours really is and it didn't make me look any better.
She did a different technique / colour combo on the other eye and by then, I was half screaming. My frustration level was rising as she doesn't even seem to know what the hell she was doing. The colours weren't striking in anyway and it looked boring. The technique she used on both eyes are extremely different yet I could hardly tell the difference between the two eyes. If I had walked off with two different coloured eyes, no one would have noticed.
I told her I wanted the give me a face chart so I can duplicate her technique and while she was busy, I wiped off the eye make up and did my own. I did mine in less that one minute despite the frustration and simple slapped on what colour I thought could mix.
It really makes me wonder, how on earth can this people even call themselves make up artist anyway? I realized that what E says is oh-so-true, what makes a make up artist good is not counted by how many certs the person has but how much effort and talent they have to begin with. In the end of the day, I'm left shaking my head wondering how could have MAC even hired someone like her, she is born with the special ability of turning gold into dust!
Her saving grace, she was 'somewhat' nice.
