Recently I acquired some MAC Quite Cute & Urban Decay’s Show Pony, as well as a few other things. So I thought I’d share my pictures and swatches with you.
It came with a lip trio, which I actually haven’t tried yet. You can see Max in the mirror above.
Here’s Candy Yum Yum & In Synch, along with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light. Since I like using Medium Dark for contour, I thought I’d give Light a whirl.
I just can’t get over how awesome Candy Yum Yum is! Retrospeck is pretty nice, too.
You can see how flash really washes these out.
I also picked up some full sizes of colors from Fyrinnae. Kuroneko, which is a metallic black, and Feline Familiars, which is a complex shade. It’s a shimmery rich chocolate shade with a subtle hue change of burgundy, turquoise, orange and bronze.
Above you can see the Show Pony set & two blushes, Quickie & Score.
I had two gift cards for Sephora, so I decided to splurge and try two things that had been recommended to me.
This is NARS illuminator in Copacabana. It’s described as a glistening pearl.
It’s a really nice highlighter, and you only need a TINY bit. A little goes a very long way. This will last me a loooooooooooooooooooooooong time, even with daily use.
I also picked up Sephora’s Professional Platinum Concealer Airbrush #57. This is supposed to be GREAT for using under the eyes and blending concealer. It’s a taklon brush (yay!) and silky soft. I’m really impressed with it.
It really is a very dense brush. After I apply my foundation, I use this brush in a crescent moon shape under the eyes to blend it out. If I use a concealer, I use it to make sure the concealer is evenly distributed and then use a setting powder like Aromaleigh’s Ultra Resolution Finishing Powder on top.
What do you think? Have you tried any of these?
