Happy Spring!

I had a wonderful first day of spring. I took the day off of work and spent it playing with Phaedra and Honey, my friend’s dog. Then later in the day I took Dave to lunch, and then we went to the MAC store.

Since I knew I was going to hit the MAC store, I wanted to wear Aquavert. However, I was torn on what to use in the crease. Should I use Shimmermoss? Phlox? No, I decided I’d be daring and use Darling Misfit. And learning my lesson from yesterday, no lippy that blended in with my skin for me, so I chose Lollipop-pop. OMG this is a MUST HaVE color for me. I love the blue sheen. It’s just gorgeous. I kept staring at my lips :)

Surpisingly, I really like Aquavert and Darling Misfit together. I’m sure some would find it hideous, but I liked it, the MA at the store I was at today complimented me on, and Dave liked it. So that’s a win in my book :) I think the very visible aqua shimmer in Darling Misfit ties it together with Aquavert.

Shade Descriptions:
Lollipop-pop – a fun vibrant light pink with a blue highlight
Darling Misfit – deep magenta-pink with contrasting aqua highlight
Nijiro – ivory with rainbow sparkles
Aquavert – Soft mint with white pearlized pigments
Candy – a true pink with sheer iridescence that will embrace cheeks with a touch of sweetness!
Kyoto – pale sky blue with glittery aqua-blue foil, great over black gloss or pink lipstick

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow insurance
MAC Aquavert – on eyelid
Fyrinnae Darling Misfit – crease
Fyrinnae Nijiro – to highlight
Fyrinnae Kyoto – a tiny bit where Darling Misfit & Aquavert meet
Aromaleigh Indelible Gel Eyeliner Black Out – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner – Zero
MAC Pro Lash Black Mascara

Cheeks:
Aromaleigh Candy blush

Lips:
Fyrinnae Lollipop-pop

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Sphynx

Yes, I’m a saucy minx!

So I went to the MAC store to look at the Sugarsweet collection and I really liked Lollipop Loving and Sweet Thing. I tried them on, and Dave hated how I looked in Lollipop Loving. He said it was not a flattering shade on me. However, he loved Sweet Thing on me and thought it was a perfect color for me. So I picked up Sweet Thing and another Pro Lash Black Mascara since mine is almost gone.


Sweet Thing – Mid-tone magenta with multi-dimensional pearl (Lustre)

When I came home, I had two surprises in the mail. The first was a package from Robyn of Purely Cosmetics, and it was two other foundations to try: Fair Maiden in the skin smoothing formula and Peaches n’ Cream in the Skin smoothing formula. I’ll be trying out Fair Maiden tomorrow.

And finally, my samples from Mixology arrived. 6 samples for $5 is a great deal. Well, Iceberg was a free sample that Rae threw in :)

Starlight – great light highlighter with lots of sparkle (made in honor of Edward’s sparkling skin from Twilight)
Iceberg – A cool powder blue with silver grey undertones
Suga – a shimmery opal pink
Armor – a steel silver
Soot – smoky, charcoal grey, semi-matte
Dune – a light beige color

      Hi Vanessa!
      Thank you :)
      Which lippy do you like?
      I think it’s an unusual combination of colors for me to wear on the eye, but I really like it. I don’t think I’ve ever worn Aquavert and managed to make my eyes stand out quite like that. It was fun :) I didn’t know Pastel Mint Green and Magenta could look so good together!

      I like both, but I was referring especially to the MAC lippie, sorry for not being specific ;)
      I will order a bunch of the Fyrinnae lippies next week; your posts have made me waaayyy to curious not to try them out :) Lots of colors I wanna test!
      And; it’s like you say; you’d never expect mint green and magenta would look good together, huh?

      Yep, I wouldn’t normally try those colors together but I’m glad they look good. It makes me want to wear them together again!
      Glad you like the lippy, too.
      Yes, you gotta try the Fyrinnae ones!
