0 Colorization - Double feature eyeshadows

Oops, I was supposed to post reviews for these eyeshadows earlier, but i didn't get about doing so till now... Basically, I  bought 4 of the double feature e/s and yes, being an addict for bright colors, all 4 colors I bought were all bright colors. Pls click for enlarged pics...and i also did some comparison swatches for 2 of the duos with other similar MAC e/s that I own..

In general, I think that the eyeshadows in this duos have pretty good color payoff and texture with the exception of the greyish on in Double feature 2. That one feels a bit chalky and a base is definitely needed for that color to appear more intensified on the eyes. Otherwise, I'm generally happy with all 4 duos i bought.

0 Benefit Bella Bamba Blush

Being a blush addict, this was on my wishlist for quite a long time ever since it was launched, but I didn't get around to buying it till recently. 

The depth of the blush is slightly shallower than previous Benefit's blushers (which is a plus point as the other packagin are just a tad too bulky to bring out. And the cover is now a lift open lid instead of a cover like previously. I like like the multi dimensional shiny color on the packagin. Minus 1 pt...as packagin could be even less bulky. And what's with all this different weight of all the benefit blushers???? Some are 12g, some are 10g and some are 11g and Bella bamba is 8g. Can't they just standardize all the sizes??

Color & Texture
I would describe this as a coral pink blush. So if u like coral blushers, you would probably like this. And it's definitely more pigmented than Coralista. Suitable for all skintones. Do not that there is slight shimmers in this blush though, but they are not very obvious when applied.

Lasting power
More lasting on the face than the other Benefit's powder blushers that I own. 

Would not repurchase, as I have way too many blushers...but I do like this blusher though

0 MAC styledriven - Pro Long Wear eyeshadows

Am so glad that this collection is permanent, cause there are simply too many items which I want from this collection both the eyeshadows, lip glasses and lip pencils.

Since it's permanent I bought 4 eyeshadows from this collection first. Will slowly buy the rest @ a later time... (Bought sunny outlook, Sweet satisfaction, Fresh Flare and Tease with Ease)

I am totally loving the eyeshadows from this collection. Very nice smooth, blendable texture with decent color payoff and some subtle to sheen to them.

And last but not least, here are some comparison swatches to other existing MAC e/s which I own...

0 The "Shop My own Stash" Challenge

Decided to start "Shop My Own stash" challenge as I've realized that i've been neglecting too many stuff which I bought but didn't use. A very good example is the Dangerous Curvee paintpot which I bought from MAC cham Pale collection, but only used it once or 2x ever since i bought it..... Hopefully this post would remind me of the stuff that I have in my stash and to use them more often. 

I won't post the base products that i use for my face, as most of the time they are the same

So here's my very first shop my own stash challenge.... so basically these are the color make up which i used for my make up today..

Eye shadow base: MAC dangerous curvee paintpot

Eyeshadows: MAC cinderfella MES over dangerous curvee, MAC crystal avalance e/s in inner corner of eye and brow bone highlighter, MAC carbon e/s on 1/3 outer corner of eye, Bobbi Brown Caviar ink gel liner
Blush: Shu Uemura P amber 83 blush

Lip color: Japanese drug store brand 01 nudge beige lipgloss

0 False lashes haul

Bought these overseas @ a very reasonable price.... less than USD$10 per box for 10 pairs of lashes. And I can reuse each pair for up to 5 times. Definitely Value for money..... Now i'm regretting not buying more.

I wasn't sure how these 2 pairs of lashes would look on me so I only bought 3 boxes in total. Now after wearing, I actually like how both pairs look on me, natural but yet lengthening and volumizing. The lash band is also very soft and bendable and feels very comfortable on. Definitely repurchasing these when I go back the next time...

0 MAC Make Me Over haul

Here's my review of the Mac Me Over items which I bought.
I bought both blushers, Equilibrium and Stunner and all 5 shadesticks. Am not a lip color person so I didn't buy any lipstuff and the eye shadow colors were kinda blah to me

Here's pics and swatches of the blushers. Click on pics for enlarged pic

Am very happy with both my blush buys, especially with equilibrium. I am usually not a contour nor bronzing powder person, but i was surprised at how natural it looked on my face when applied with a light hand. And I especially liked how it faded off on me by the end of the day leaving a subtle contour behind on the face. This can work well for both fair and darker skinned ladies

As for Stunner, it is nice.... and gives a rosy pink flush on the cheeks....Recommended for fair to medium dark skinned tones. It's nothing too unique, but nevertheless, nice to have. Lasts the whole day on my cheeks as with most MAC blushers

Personally, I'm not a fan of the shadesticks as usually I've to tug at them on my eyelid to get any colorpay off or warm up the color on my fingers before applying. However, I cannot resist the colors of the shadesticks in this collection. 3 are new LE colors (Street cool, Tundra and Heirloom) and 2 are repromote LE from Sugar Sweet.

I especially like tundra because of the high silverish metallic finish it gives and this will make a good base for all my silver e/s (which sometimes i've problems making them appear because they are somehow so sheer)

Cakeshop looks especially good if layered over with a green based e/s. I tried MAC's Dalliance mega meta shadow over it and i'm totally in love.

The fluidlines are calling out to me, but I've busted my budget for this mth....so maybe..if they are still in stock later in the mth I might get them. Otherwise, i'm giving them a pass. 

Update: I love heirloom shade stick too. Used it together with my Performance art e/s (from cinematics which has a slight taupe undertone to it) with satin taupe and loved how it helped to make the color of Performance Art e/s pop
