Especially considering that I once dropped half a container of crumbled black eyeshadow onto a friend's white bedspread once. I don't think she was able to save it. I still feel bad about this. SORRY!
So you can see why MAC Pigments did not really appeal to me. At least, until I saw this incredibly simple and incredibly effective demonstration of how to create a really good smoky eye:
I was intrigued by the beautiful colour he applied so I went and checked it out. Little did I know, 'Mauvement' was a limited edition and wasn't available for a while. And then, because I couldn't get it, I became obsessed with it and decided I had to have it.
Anyway, I went shopping for makeup on the weekend with Maca who, as we have discussed, is a total babe and happens to be my shopping soulmate. On our little expedition I finally found the oh-so-coveted 'Mauvement' and bought it, gleefully. I have been playing around with it and it is truly gorgeous. I haven't even spilled it (yet)! Now I've jinxed myself. Oh well. It's so pretty, it'll probably be worth it. And now I am obsessed and must have more colours! More more more. More.
So far I've decided I want these:
|'Vintage Gold' - open to other goldy suggestions though.|
|Better look at 'Bloodline'|
|This looks like a more realistic pic of what 'Copper Sparkle' looks like|
|Or just, you know, any or all of these.|
|This is 'Mauvement', which I bought.|
Aren't they divine? I am particularly keen on 'Copper Sparkle' - apart from coral, bronzey colours are very in you know. And apparently because you need to use so little (seriously - dipping the brush into the powdery residue on the lid is plenty to use on one eye) these babies last forever. A clever investment for $39 Australian. Unless you're going overseas soon, in which case, don't bother everything is cheaper away from here.
Oh and because I don't know how to save my money and when I want something I have no self-restraint, I also bought this stuff:
|And yes, it really is as good as everyone says.|
|Got this in khaki - also folds under and makes a super cute top.|
|Aaaand I got these in brown - 50% of the sale price. Win.|
Maca also bought the same clogs (because like I said, we are shopping soulmates and have infallible taste) PLUS I got a grey dress made out of almost tracksuit-y type material (but not quite) which I can't find a picture of online, and cannot be bothered to take a pic of it, so use your imagination. The best bit is everything I bought fits seamlessly into my wardobe and mix and match with each other perfectly. Win win win. I saw another dress I want though and didn't have enough $$$ for it...hmm...must go back. I will become increasingly and steadily obsessed until I get it:
|Cute, right? Right.|
Now must devise genius plan to somehow get more money. Note: working hard is not an option. Also: any recommendations for good mascaras? My Rimmel mascara (not Glam Lash, the other one) has pretty much all dried up and turned clumpy. Superfail.
