Friday Haulin'

Today I went shopping at Sephora to pick up a few things that were on my list.  I've got a number of high end on ground companies I can purchase from now, as well as online companies and mineral companies, so I've got plenty of choices!  :D  Choices are good when you're a makeup junkie like I am.

So anyway, I got a few more things from Too Faced and Urban Decay.

These are from Too Faced:  Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Centerfold and Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue.

Here's a lip swatch of Centerfold.

I'm excited to try the Glitter Glue!  I still have issues with fallout a lot, even when I use TFSI or UDPP or my Smashbox Photo Finish.  It's kinda annoying.  The closest I've gotten to perfection is Stick 'Em from Silk Naturals.  I really wanted to test this with the two most difficult shadows I have to work with....both are NARS shadows.....the Purple shade from Eurydice, which has GORGEOUS blue reflects in real life that don't show up EVER on the skin, and Tropic which is matte teal with some silver glitter that falls out.

Here are swatches of them over the glitter glue.

OMG you can see the reflects in the Eurydice finally!!!!  The swatch for Tropic didn't turn out so well, but the glitter stuck to it MUCH better than usual.  I'm planning on using them very soon in a look to test them out.  I'll probably apply the Eurydice with my finger, as I tried it already with a brush patting it on with no luck.

Next up:  Urban Decay.

I got the Black Palette, which has six blackened shades of shadow in it, as well as a zero 24/7 liner.  It also came with a mini Eden SI.  The lone shadow is Shattered.

Here are all the shadows.  L to R, top row:  Black Dog, Barracuda, Jet.  L to R, Bottom Row:  Sabbath, Cobra, and Libertine.  I didn't know if I'd like Cobra or not, but swatched it's GORGEOUS and I'm planning on using it very soon.

Here are the swatches.  Top L to R:  Black Dog, Barracuda, Jet.  On the Far Right is Shattered.  The bottom row L to R is Sabbath, Cobra, and Libertine.  It's the same order as the palette itself.

I can't wait to do some things with these!!!!
