Mini haul Bobbi Brown I had a few things on a Bobbi Brown wishlist for a while, so when I saw they were having a sale a couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t help but cross some of them off my list!

Mini Haul: NYX Taupe Blush and Infinite Shadowstick in Almond

Affilier Acheté

NYX Taupe Blush and Infinite Shadowstick in Almond I have a backlog of items I’ve collected over the past month that I’ve not written about, and this set is budget-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about my spending practices. 😉 (I promise, I’m accumulating them gradually!) Up this time is NYX Taupe Blush and Infinite Shadowstick in Almond.

The Taupe blush is especially exciting for me, since it’s my first shot at trying my hand at contouring (trying the cheap alternative to this Wishlist Wednesday item). I mean, now that I have the brush, I need the contour!

My cheekbones are weird (just like my downturned eyes!), and they don’t have the hollow until the middle of my cheek, so I’m trying to adjust Karima’s tutorial to my own face. I’ll post some photos once I’ve started to master it and let you see how it’s going.

NYX Taupe Blush and Infinite Shadowstick in Almond The Infinite Shadowstick in Almond was inspired by this post on The Beauty Department. In what feels like an endless winter, I wanted the touch of summer that look offered.

I was a bit surprised to see how warm-leaning it was in person. In the makeup look, it came off as a lot cooler and more taupe. It’s definitely a warm, amped up peachy champagne. It’s actually really lovely; I wore it yesterday and loved it, but it’s also not at all how it looked. (Come to think of it, the pencil pictured doesn’t even look like this pencil. I wonder if they actually used the Sephora version…the pencil even looks right…)

Again, I’ll have to show you how this looks on in the future. But here are some swatches:

Review: MAC Lipmix – Battle of the Liquid Lipsticks Part II

The subject: MAC Lipmix in Orange

The previous installment of the Battle of the Liquid Lipsticks saw me reviewing Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar. It’s being pitted against Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream and today’s entrant, MAC Lipmix.

I’ve been slightly obsessed with orange lipstick since September of last year when I bought Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Orange. Then I bought YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in Incandescent Orange. It’s a slippery slope. This summer I purchased MAC Lipstick in So Chaud. But then it happened.

Rose and I were sitting outside in the cold watching the Metropolitan Opera opening night telecast, looking up on her phone which celebrities were nice and cozy inside (and what they were wearing!), when we saw this.
