1st half of NYX l/s swatches

Here is the first half of the lipsticks. Bear with me! These are taking longer than expected :(












I LOVE Pandora! But I don't know when I'd ever wear it out. Lol. It's a little bold for the daytime, but it'd be a good night time color and it looks a lot more vibrant in person.


The swatch of Sun Flower on Cherry Culture is COMPLETELY wrong lol. This is one of my favorites actually. It's a light coral red. It's not too bright and bold for the color scared.

lily, i want that brush set. i read about it! do you know if it's gonna be sold online? i don't have a nordstrom near me and that's what sucks. i wanted that kit for the 187 brush! you should buy that brush from ulta! it's on sale right now. i hope mine comes in soon so i can tell you how it works. i'm also too scared to use the brush for liquid and dry foundation! i have the tiny silk naturals brush and it works great. i use it for blush since it's so tiny but used it once for my face and it works wonders! if the ulta brush works well, i might buy another one for back up! but yeah, i reallllly want the kit from mac. do you know if they'll have it on the mac store or is that only for nordstrom? ugh...i might have to get someone to get it for me. maybe my sister will but she's too lazy. lol. i hope it's on the website for mac or nordstrom!

ooooooooh the wipes are not greasy at all!!!!!!!!!!!! the scents comes from essential oils, i believe but it's not oily. i've tried wipes are are really oily and these aren't! they're so cheap! i might have to stock up on them!!!

oh, okay! i'm gonna have to remember to get it. lol. i didn't know if they were only selling it at the counters or if they were gonna have it online. i will have to get my hands on one of them. lol! yay! i can't wait.

i like the little mac sets. i think it's a good price for a couple of brushes. i got one of their heirloom sets a while back and love it! the only thing i didn't like about it was that one of my brushes was shedding! and also the one for my eyeshadow was white hair instead of the usual brown. so it kinda sucked cause it would stain the hair blue or whatever color i used! the other heirloom set had a 187 but that was before i knew about it. lol. so if i had to take it back, i'd totally get the other one!!!!

spankedelic said...

my 239 hasn't been shedding at all! that's really weird. you should maybe see if they can replace yours =( my 129 blush brush sheds like freaking crazy, though! that's why i don't use it as much. i use the silk naturals brush for that. my 239 hasn't given me any problems yet. maybe you can exchange it. i would call mac up and try to see if they would let me get another one. are you planning on getting the mac brush set when it comes out in july?

spankedelic said...

well, i think they should replace it cause you haven't had it long. i would think it would last you longer than that, you know? i know they're supposed to shed but i don't think it should be to the point that it's wearing thin. i've had mine longer than you and it hasn't shed at all! so i think yours might've been a funky one! i plan on getting the set with the 187, too! i can't wait! lol. you should really call mac and tell them about the brush. i hope they replace it =)

Lol~ I go to Trinh's blog and all I see is your posts. I come here and all I see is Trinh's posts. It's too funny! :D I'm butting in the conversation... :P

The pink kabuki brush gives a light coverage. I think it blends well at least for me.

I've had a hard time cutting down on my CC cart. I'm bookmarking your swatches! It helps a lot in choosing colors since CC swatches are horrible. I would go to Makeupalley and search but there are hundreds of pictures. I actually went through over a hundred pages for them.

LOL on Shisheto! I heard others say Shichido or Chichido. That's so sweet of your dad. If he knew how much good makeup cost, he'd probably be shocked. I'm very close to my dad too. My mom's not abusive, just twisted and has the ability to turn others against her own family, including me. She's a traitor too, believes and trusts others more than her own family. I've been telling her to officially annul their marriage. Unfortunately, it's not yet happening. My mother's side thinks I'm crazy when I bluntly suggest divorce/annulment. But I truly believe it's the best for all of us.
