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.
