Hey, Glamour Dolls!
I'm back with another haul, I surprised myself by buying another haul so soon after the other one, but; I work hard... (shrugs) and I deserve it! Read on to see what I purchased and my thoughts. Click the pics to enlarge.
I've been wanting Up the Amp lipstick for a while as well as Viva Glam Nicki and I'm pleased with the both of them. Up the Amp is a lavender violet color, it reminds me of a softer version of Violetta lipstick from Mac. I'm really not a fan of violet lipsticks (go figure) so, I pair it with a brown lip liner and it mutes the color down perfectly for me.
Viva Nicki is gorgeous a beautiful yellow-pink color. I'm going to do a lip of the day, so you all can see how it looks. I've heard that Viva Nicki is going to be around for 1 full year, I'm definitely going to get a few more tubes.
I bought Sweet as Cocoa blush last month and I finally got Dollymix blush, it was on my Mac wishlist FOREVER and a day! It's a pure candy pink color, it's a sheertone blush, so; it comes off subtle, but; you can build it to make it a lot more dramatic. Dollymix was the last Mac blush that I wanted, my Mac blush collection is now complete, now I can move on to Nars blushes :-).
In Extra Dimension
I bought two highlighters from the In Extra Dimension collection, I wanted Superb but it sold out... I bought Whisper of Guilt (light soft white with shimmery sheen) and Glorify (copper with golden shimmer). These colors are so ridiculously gorgeous!
I was really impressed with the sizes, I thought they were going to be the size of Mac blushes but they appear to be the size of the normal mineralize skinfinishes. They're described as liquid-powder highlights, they really appear and feel as just powder highlights.
The pigmentation is awesome as you can see from the swatches...my package arrived at work and I swatched them in front of my supervisor and she was so impressed with how pigmented the colors are, one swipe is all you really need. The price is $29 ($17 for Mac pro members) but, those dollars will last you a long time.
Whisper of Guilt is the perfect highlight color for my skin and Glorify is really a beautiful bronzer for my skin tone. I was watching a You Tube video and she said both Mac Amber lights eyeshadow or Warm blend skinfinish (copper color in middle) are good dupes for the Glorify highlighter.
I've been meaning to get Groundwork paintpot for a while to, it's described as a mid-tone neutral taupe. It matches my skin so well, it was really no point in swatching it for you all. I use it as a base for my eyeshadows.
One of my friends placed an order from Inglot and realized she had multiple sets of lipsticks, she was kind of enough to give me a set. I really like both of the colors that I have, the color payoff is amazing...the only thing is-they come in plastic wrapping, so you have to purchase an empty lipstick palette to store them.
