HAUL SWATCHES (5/15/2009)

Sorry for the delay. I tried everything to get better lighting, but this house's lighting just makes me want to cry... So, here's a family photo and then I'll do individual swatches.
I didn't do swatches for the mascara, concealer, and MAC blushes


Estee Lauder Take it away total makeup remover in far back

(L-R) Bobbi Brown Duo + included brush, MAC Fafi Powder Blush (Fashion Frenzy), MAC mineralized Blush (Nuance), MOD Lashes (33 &45)

Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow (N IR Blue), Mac Lipsticks (Fast Thrill, Flowerplay, Curtsy), Lancome color fever (Enticing Rose) & Color Design (Plumlicious), Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner (Black Brown)

Shu Uemura Fiber Xtension Mascara, Shu Uemura Pro Spots Concealer (7yr Medium)




* Bobbi Brown Bronzer/Blush Duo (with Face Blender Brush)

One of my best bargains today :) Both colors come off lighter than what you'll expect - which is great for my skin tone. My skin tone is in between NC15 and NC20 and the color pay-off is just right because I look super tacky if the colors on my face are too vibrant :p


* Lancome Crayon Glisse in Rose Gold


I forgot to include this baby in the family picture. Its a pencil type creamy eyeshadow witch could work perfectly for a base! It glides on like butter and so far, I love this! It's a very light pink color with golden undertones - which is VERY similar to MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque


* Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow (N IR Blue)


I've been going crazy over Blue lately and here's another addition to my blue collection :) It's sooooooo pretty! I LOVE <3 onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_lvAoBqXe4R0/Sg5bDpZNBWI/AAAAAAAAAU0/r6b5SINlQ40/s1600-h/lipstick+lancome.jpg">



These were 2 for 18 dollars :) Since I heart most of Lancome's products, I thought I'd give the lipsticks a try. I have a lot of Lancome's glosses, yet I somehow never had a lipstick. I'm particularly excited about the Color Design Red lipstick.



* Mac Lipsticks


Only the Fast Thrill is a frost, the other two are Lustre lipsticks :) great for all sorts of looks!



* MAC Blushes


MAC Fafi Powder Blush (Fashion Frenzy)& MAC mineralized Blush (Nuance)

Fafi blush is more on the darker pink side. I haven't opened it yet because I might just give it away for a contest. The Mineralized blush is near a golden beige color with a lot of gold shimmer in it. I might give this away too :p that's why I didn't swatch or open it
