New: MAC ROSE IS A ROSE Quad!

So I did a pre-sale for this in early May.
This is a NORDSTROM exclusive palette, just in case you're wondering.
I really like the color combination, actually.
At first I was hesitant, but it's fun and exciting- springy/summery, etc.
The only bummer shade is CONTRAST (which is the only permanent shade in this palette)- I was like "damn, how many more Contrast's are going to be popping up in these awesome limited edition quads?"
I love collection MAC LE quads and palettes (too bad I can't get my hands on those TRIP palettes)...


I actually BOUGHT this palette STRICTLY for a back-up of Solar White.
It's one of my favorite highlighting colors- and it was originally released with MAC's Cool Heat Collection.
Top Left: Solar White (Frost)- Golden White
Top Right: Seeds of Love (Frost)- Frosted Peach
Bottom Left: Petal Worship (Lustre)- Light, Blue-Based Pink
Bottom Right: Contrast (Velvet)- Dark Purple/Blue (seems like a navy blue to me)

Hi Whit!
To answer your question about keeping my dog white...I think it's mainly because we give him Angel Eyes. It's this powder that you mix in with his food 1x or 2x a week, it keeps his tears from staining the hair around his eyes. My dog used to have the red stained tear trails that most maltese get, but ever since we started giving him Angel Eyes it's totally gone away!! You should try it, they sell it at most pet markets. Hope that helps! :)

Would you like to swap something for it? I have only used it 3 times max. I barely use things on my face besides primer and foundation

Wow, you make me want to get this palette :) Can't wait to see you wear this.

Btw, I don't own any Pupa eye shadows yet. Don't usually wear eye makeup and was trying to decide if I should get something from Pupa :) Maybe I'll pop by the store this weekend!
