Last weekend I got some makeup items that were on my wishlist. I've played around with some of them so I thought I would share them with you. I will include a cut because this post is quite picture heavy. To see swatches click "continue reading".

"ROSE" POT ROUGE:  This is my third Pot Rouge from Bobbi Brown.  That says how much I like them.  It's a really natural pink color, unlike anything I already own.  I had prepared a post on the Pot Rouges but now I will include this new shade and post the three of them together.

MAC MIXING MEDIUM:  This is a Pro product that I've always wanted.  Recently MAC started selling Pro products on their regular website so I was finally able to get it.  I really want to experiment with this to apply glitter on my eyes or make custom eyeliner colors.  It has many uses.

MAC "PURE WHITE" CHROMALINE:  I was looking for a white gel liner to feature on my Try It Out Thursday series.  I considered getting the white Maybelline Color Tattoo but it had shimmer.  This is also a Pro product. 

ILLAMASQUA "KINK" NAIL VARNISH:  I was so impressed with Creator that I bought another Illamasqua nail polish.  This one has a rubber finish.  The cap is rubberized (the regular cap is shiny plastic) which is really cool.  I'm excited to try it!

"GRAPE VINE" BABY LIPS:  I loved the pink Baby Lip so much that I wanted another one.  Sadly, this was a disappointment.  It's basically colorless.  I thought it would be a sheer wearable plum but it's not.  The texture is really moisturizing though.

CHINA GLAZE "PIZZAZZ" NAIL POLISH:  I bought this because I saw comparison swatches online and it's very similar to Deborah Lippmann's "Happy Birthday".  This has a bit more purple in it though.  I haven't used it yet.

MAC "CRANBERRY" EYESHADOW:  This is gorgeous!  Worth the hype.  Super pigmented and soft.  I already used this on my eyes and loved it.  I'm glad I got it because I didn't have any red toned eyeshadows.

MAC "CHARCOAL BROWN" EYESHADOW:  Another matte brown for my neutrals palette.  This one is soft and versatile because you can build it up.  It's very cool toned and I really like it.

MAC "GREENSMOKE" EYESHADOW:  This one was a disappointment.  The color is beautiful!  I wish the formula was better because I really wanted this.  I had to layer it a lot to get it to show up.  It's also a dry.

Baby Lips in "Grape Vine" - This is a heavy swatch, swiped many times.  It's basically colorless.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great weekend.


  1. You got some great products. I've been thinking about getting the mixing medium before and totally forgot about it, lol. I'd love to see a review on it. I can see the similarity between Happy Birthday and Pizzazz, I happen to have both.

    1. Yeah, I'm excited to play around with it. :) I will make a Try It Out Thursdays post with it. x
