Today I used one of my new HiFi shadows called You're a Criminal... it is such a pretty and unique silvery grayish taupe. I bought a bunch of shadows when HiFi first announced their sale- buy 2 shadows get 1 free. This sale runs through the end of April, check out their etsy shop HERE.
Somehow, I ended up at the makeup counters in Macy's again and was sucked into buying Clinique stuff because today was the last day of their bonus day. I got myself All About Eyes-Rich to moisturize my under eye area because I've been wanting to try it forever. I just put some on after washing and exfoliating and it feels quite nice- I will update as I use it more. The makeup bag that came with it is really really cute and I just love getting travel sized lotions to keep in my overnight bag to make packing for trips easier. It also came with an eyeshadow duo,a mini mascara, a tone correcting face cream as well as the 2 makeup bags and the travel size dramatically different moisturizing cream. I like free stuff! I am proud to say that I stopped at MAC and was able to control myself, although I swatched Shale and it was really really pretty. That might go on my wishlist :) Anyway, on to the LOTD.
A few days ago, I ordered a bunch of NYX Black Label lipsticks from Cherry Culture and I am just loving them. In this look, I used a color called India. It is a super light salmon/melon nude in a creamy matte texture. The color is not the easiest to wear because it is so very light, but I like the effect when contrasted with a darker smokey eye. It has full opaque coverage and is not drying at all. I really love Black Label lipsticks so much more than their round ones.
Hmmmmm, maybe one of these days I'll do something besides a smokey eye ;)
