Yaaay! A multipurpose post: FOTD, swap goodies and cheap shoes!
My Urban Decay Naked post will go up tomorrow morning for you guys :) I'm totally stoked -- I got some amazing swatch photos before the sun starting going down.
First up, is my FOTD:
Sorry, no close up shots -- my camera ran out of batteries this morning and by the time I got home, my makeup had smudged from my eyes watering. Also, one of the eyeshadows I used ALWAYS disappears on me so the photos I took later on were quite bad.
On eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Mac Tilt, Mac Zingy mixed with Revlon matte e/s in Venetian Blue, Mac Birds and Berries, Collection 2000 glitter liner in Hustle, Urban Decay liner in Zero (my brows are Espress now, in case you wanted to know)
Cheeks: Honestly don't remember
Lips: Mac Creme d'Nude with Milani gloss in Movie Star over top. Yes, it's blue.
I liked how it came out even though the crease is lighter than I wanted. And my hair is still being finicky -- little stray hairs keep flying into my face, argh.
Next up, I got my swap goodies from the always sweet Robyn (Stay Beautiful). She sent me so much stuff! I feel like I cheated her out even though Milani is expensive here, lol. I may have to send her some additional goodies that I happen to nab :3.
- Sleek Circus Palette
- Barry M dazzledusts in Aqua Gold and Oyster Grey
- Collection 2000 nail polish in Shameless
- MUA e/s in #12 and #13 (omg, these are amazing!)
- Sleek Eye Dust in So Sleek
- MeMeMe Beat the Blues highlighter in Moonbeam
- Various samples of dazzledusts (not pictured -- swatched them below)
I -love- everything. I swatched it for you guys:
Top 2 are the dazzledusts, Aqua Gold and then Oyster Grey. These are so gorgeous! The second is the MeMeMe highlighter -- I kinda covered it with Aqua Gold on accident, lol. Left is blended, if you can see it, and right is just dabbed on. It's got a nail polish brush like applicator. I will maybe do a quickie review on it as one of my vacation posts. Then it's #12 and #13 of the MUA shadows, and the Sleek eye dust. That eye dust is amazing! I don't have anything like it and I can't wait to mess about with the MUA colors.
Next are the dazzledust sample swatches:
Top row: Cherry Red, Old Gold, Storm Cloud
Bottom: Emerald (inaccurate swatch, sorry!), Winter Berry, Parrot Green
These are all lovely shades. I especially love Winter Berry -- it didn't swatch very well but its got light blue and pinkish sparkle in it. Very interesting shade. The cherry red is amazing as well even though it stains horribly (as you will see in later swatches, lmao!)
Last, but not least... I got these adorable sandals for $10 earlier while looking for nude pumps. Which, speaking of, why are they so hard to find?!
That's all I've got for you right now! I will schedule the Naked and Circus palette posts for tomorrow morning and later in the day :) Enjoy!
