So enough with my rambling... on to the fun part!
I purchased 7 of the 9 cream eyeshadows from the metal-x collection. I ended up passing on the pink and purple shades because at the store when I was testing them out on my hand, the color didn't come on too well. Maybe it was just the testers, but even the color didn't tempt me much. I've yet to use the cream eyeshadows, but hopefully they work well. I've seen Stephie use it and it looks gorgeous on her! Lately I've been pretty plain Jane when it comes to my makeup. But I'll let you all know how I like it once I decide to use it.
Here are the pictures of my Thanksgiving haul:
- The first row are the shaping and sculpting powders for contouring & highlighting. I don't know why buy lately I've been going mad crazy buying stuff for contouring & highlighting. I guess I'm really trying to master the concept of it! I've yet to do so. =P
- The second row of course is the new Metal-X Collection
- And the third and fourth row are just eyeshadows
Now for the swatches of the Metal-X Collection:
If you didn't figure it out, here are the swatches of the Metal-X Collection. The bigger picture is the eyeshadow in the pot and the smaller boxed picture is the eyeshadow on my skin.
Now for some random FOTDs:
Using the Matte2 Collection: I know I look dead here.. told yall I had a long weekend right? haha
Using MI LADY from the Antiquitease Collection: I found that wetting your brush (I used my mixing medium) when applying this eyeshadows makes the color come on much more vibrant.
At the Vietnamese Concert:
The one and only Cat Tien.. I <3
I loved her dress & shoes.. I wonder where you bought it?!
It was her birthday.. so happy birthday to her!
And the beautiful Nhu Loan... who's also very sweet.
I didn't care too much for Don Ho or however you spell his name. hehe.Oh and look, I reorganized my palettes and added in the new ones I bought! *_^
So I've been reading and getting a lot of question about how to conceal underneath the eye when it's dry.. I too suffer from dryness underneath the eye and it took me quite a while to find a solution, but happy to say, I've found one! I think it'll be much easier for me to show you than to type out how I do it so, I will be making a video on how I conceal my dry under eye! So stay tuned...
