Purple Passion....

Hey Ladies =)

First off I hope that you girls (and guys?) are taking/have taken advantage of MAC's Friends & Fam discount!!!!
I sure did! I ordered 3 things from the Dame Edna collection cuz I llloovvee the purple packaging, I've heard that some people are kinda bummed b/c the packaging has stickers...which DOES in fact suck a bit...but then again nothing lasts forever =) I live for now!!! Okay, not all the time but Mac got me with this one lol.

So I ordered: The Wisteria Trio, Gladiola l/s, & Hot Frost l/g...I really wanted a nice bright lip stick because I usually stray away from anything with color, but I want to try somethin new for 09! lol...So HOPEFULLY I'll have enough guts to rock Gladiola...if not it's always a nice color to have in my kit =)

Check out Ren Ren's tutorial using the Wisteria Trio here

Oh and I'm definitely on a roll! I even have a FOTD to share =) Yay me!!!!

What I used:
Eyes: Loreal Decrease(waste!), ?Lavender/Lilac? NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose e/s (lid), Mac Fig. 1 (crease, lower lashline), Mac Carbon (outer V, slightly blended into crease), Mac Ricepaper (brow highlight), Revlon Colorstay Liquid Line, CG Perfect Blend black Eye Pencil, CG Lash Blast
Brows: Mac Espresso, NC45 Studio Finish Concealer

Face: NC45 Studio Finish Concealer, NYX Concealer in a Jar-yellow, MAC Select SPF 15 Finish Foundation NC44, Maybelline Mineral Power in Translucent(to set)
Cheeks: Bonnebell Powder Bronzer in Golden Tan, Revlon Blush in Pinking of You

Lips: Milani Lip Pencil in Satin Rose, Milani l/s in Dolce Vita, Avon l/g in Peony Pink

I forgot to use my Mineralize Skinfinish....and I am thinking of changing foundations....I wanna try Studio Fix Fluid and/or MUFE HD Foundation...not feeling my current one anymore...makes me look weird lol And just a brief rant...L'Oreal Decrease sucks..for me anyway...After it's gone I'm either gonna try Too Faced Shadow Insurance or UDPP....might as well spend an extra $ eyeshadow needs to stay put!

But anyways....

I hope you all enjoyed!!!!

Sheli> I do a really simple smokey eye when I go out a lot and never realized (until now) that I never post it. But I will definitely devote a post to smokey eyes in the (very) near future =)
