I'm a MACaholic- this is a minor haul for me, believe it or not. I'm saving up for SugarSweet, which launches here in the US March 19th. Even the girls there said I had an addiction- but that it is well-warranted :-) In the blog, I also mentioned what I plan to pair each with ♥
What a lovely matte highlighter or base e/s. The texture is a dream to work with-creamy, smooth & easily blended. I also liked how it brightened up my eye area. It's very similar to MAC's Painterly PP. It doesn't have shimmer like Shroom, but I am thrilled that I added this to my collection- I know it'll be a staple.
Picked this up because my other suffered an unfortunate de-potting accident :-( A staple e/s of mine, love love LOVE this shimmery peachy-champagne color all over the lid with Satin Taupe in the crease. Also works well with Twinks.
I can see this shade not working for some girls, but I loved it on me! It's a...dusky taupe. I wore Blanc Type as my base, Quarry on my lid, & Wedge in the crease, a lil' liner & I loved it- so did the MA. I have green-eyes & this color really made them pop.
I would call this a plummy-brown with a golden sheen to it. I am super excited about this e/s. I plan to wear it with Satin Taupe on my lid, & Sable on the outer corner & up in the crease to add depth. Then line the lid with carbon. I'm sure I'll think of some more combos for this baby.
If you love browns & neutrals, this is a must-have. It's a reddish warm brown shade that I plan to use as a crease color. At MAC, I had the MA pair it with All That Glitters & it looked sooo nice. I also see myself pairing this with Wedge, Sketch, Woodwinked, Satin Taupe & Haux. I will use a light hand with this one though-too much can look very harsh.
This was more of a "what the hell, why not?" purchase. I'm still not too sure about this gold-bronzey e/s but I had it on my fair-medium skin tone & it didn't look orangey. I do wish I had more of a tan going on for this color to really pop, but I am still willing to work with it. I know it's going to be used a lot come summertime! And if it doesn't work, that's what swaps are for.
Blankety & Hue
Hello, my name is April & I'm a nude addict. I think this should be my personal slogan. Typically, I pair Cherish & Myth for my signature color. Perhaps this will change?? First off, Blankety won't be my favorite color, but I wanted to try it. At MAC, it looked nice- gave me a pretty nude lip. At home, it looks craptastic. I'll play around with it & see where my love goes for it though. I do love Hue though. Hue- a soft milky pink- is definitely going to be getting some serious lip action from me.
LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST...blush:
I heart MAC'S mineralized blushes & this looks lovely on me. I will soon be taking a picture of it on so you can check it out. I thought it'd be too bold for me, but it worked out beautifully. Really added a gorgeous sheen to my cheeks & I actually got a compliment about it today. I also have Warm Soul & can't decide which one I like more.
That is it! I did pick up a MAC HK Pink Fish & while the name is rather unfortunate, it's super cute. Pics are to come, you gorgeous gals!
