Recently I acquired some MAC Quite Cute & Urban Decay’s Show Pony, as well as a few other things. So I thought I’d share my pictures and swatches with you.

The above picture is from a Hautelook purchase by a company called Being True. I don’t know anything about them, but I totally wanted the expandable lip brush and and the cute green bag.

It came with a lip trio, which I actually haven’t tried yet. You can see Max in the mirror above.

Here is the lip brush put together.

Here’s Candy Yum Yum & In Synch, along with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light. Since I like using Medium Dark for contour, I thought I’d give Light a whirl.

This is me wearing light outside in natural light with no flash.


Here’s me wearing Candy Yum Yum. I absolutely love this color.

This is Play Time, Quite the Thing! and Retrospeck.


I still need to get In Synch, Play Time, Quite the Thing! & Naked Liner swatched on my lips, but I haven’t yet had time.

I just can’t get over how awesome Candy Yum Yum is! Retrospeck is pretty nice, too.


This is Miss Behave mineralize blush and Naked Liner.  Miss Behave looks like it would make a great highlighter for darker skintones and a subtle natural blush on lighter skintones.

You can see how flash really washes these out.

I also picked up some full sizes of colors from Fyrinnae. Kuroneko, which is a metallic black, and Feline Familiars, which is a complex shade. It’s a shimmery rich chocolate shade with a subtle hue change of burgundy, turquoise, orange and bronze.

Above you can see the Show Pony set & two blushes, Quickie & Score.


I had been curious about the Show Pony palette, so I’m glad I snagged it from Hautelook. I also really love the Score blush. Snatch & Painkiller are very pretty!

I had two gift cards for Sephora, so I decided to splurge and try two things that had been recommended to me.

This is NARS illuminator in Copacabana. It’s described as a glistening pearl.

It’s a really nice highlighter, and you only need a TINY bit. A little goes a very long way. This will last me a loooooooooooooooooooooooong time, even with daily use.

I also picked up Sephora’s Professional Platinum Concealer Airbrush #57. This is supposed to be GREAT for using under the eyes and blending concealer. It’s a taklon brush (yay!) and silky soft. I’m really impressed with it.

It really is a very dense brush. After I apply my foundation, I use this brush in a crescent moon shape under the eyes to blend it out. If I use a concealer, I use it to make sure the concealer is evenly distributed and then use a setting powder like Aromaleigh’s Ultra Resolution Finishing Powder on top.

What do you think? Have you tried any of these?
