I've been very good over the past few weeks and have spent very little money on make up since coming back from visiting hubs. The only purchases made have been from funds in my Paypal account (and that's not reeeeal money is it?!!) and I also bought the latest Sleek palettes last week.
Over the past few months I've built up my makeup collection to the point where I don't need to buy as much as I have done previously. However, I thought I'd treat myself yesterday and passed by MAC with Miss Virtue . We decided to go to the Covent Garden store instead of the Carnaby St Pro store for a change and it was a great improvement on my last experience, when I was scrutinised by the assistant manager when I took a product back for a refund. How very dare I, what was I thinking?! *rolls eyes*
Creme d'Nude (Cremesheen)
Embark e/s refill
Conjure Up mineralize blush (Magic, Mirth & Mischief)
If you look closely you may be able to see the fine glitter in this shade, luckily it's not overpowering.Nothing else took my fancy from Magic, mirth and MIschief, though Blue Sorcery mineralize e/s duo looked nice.
I didn't want to try the lipstick testers on my lips (sanitised or not, too many lips have been on them for my liking!) so spent an age doing swatches on my hand in varying degrees of lighting. I'm fairly satisfied that I can make both choices work for me and I plan to use Bare today and put it through its paces.
I also bought two more blushes from Gossmakeupartist's blog sale last week and they arrived a couple of days ago. Deep was on my wishlist so I'm really pleased about getting it at such a cheap price. Brazen works with a light hand and will look nice with a bit of sheen over the top so that'll encourage me to dig out my MSFs.
I keep forgetting that I can use Illamasqua cream blushes on my lips. The MUA who served us in Selfridges as we browsed reminded me, so I'll see what I can do with Deep as it's lovely sheer berry shade.
