I've been going a little overboard with beauty products lately with the excuse that I have a blog readership (HA!) to uphold. Pathetic, I know... But in my defense, half of this is from a blog sale and well... one shadow is for my sister's birthday.
Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser - picked this up at Wal-Mart. Best cleanser ever. I use this at night and Spectro-Jel in the mornings.
Almay TLC 16 hour Foundation - Read excellent reviews on Makeupalley for this foundation and... so far so good! Not as good as my Double Wear Light but a good cheaper alternative.
MAC Pro Pan eyeshadows in Shroom, Star Violet, Mythology (for the sistah), Brown Script and Antiqued. I wanted to try more orange toned browns. We'll see how this goes.
MAC Creme Cup lipstick - WAY pinker than I thought it would be. Not sure I love it yet.
MAC Cremesheen in Partial to Pink - love love love the formula of the Cremesheens.
Cargo Blu-Ray bronzer - Really gorgeous and finely milled
NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Calliope
Scattered MAC brushes from the Colorforms Collection - I'm in love with the 219 so far.
And got a freebie green NYX eyeshadow from a blog sale purchase! Thank Kelli!
I will most likely be posting swatches of the eyeshadows as well as the lipsticks. I'll be giving Creme Cup another few days of testing. I find it so pink on me! My lips are really not pigmented which is probably why. But we'll see! I have more items on the way as well which I'm really excited about - I'll be posting about those as well.
