MAC Amplified Lipstic - Coral Polyp ( my favourite colour at the moment ) This colour reminds me of MAC Sashimi a few years ago. I just love it! Its actually brighter than this - well, not as bright but it has like a neon orange / gloss thing going on. =P

__________________________________________________________________________

Ever since I posted the Lipstick post, I had so many request to swatch it. A lot of people were inquiring if the shade was similar to Girl About Town Amplified lipstick. I did tell one person that it was more purple in it but I was wrong. After trying it on today its a lot lighter and not as creamy/pigmented like Girl About Town.


Like I mentioned in my last post on the Gladiola Lipstick, the red glasses are stickers, BUT on the Eye Shadow Pallet, its actually embossed. I think like the lipstick, it was a sticker and they coated the packaging with some plastic glaze.
The pallet colour itself is actually too pale blue for me. I like darker colours. I really had to work the black in there to darken it. I am quite tanned and colours like this doesn't really compliment me as I love warmer colours.
All the colours in the above picture is from the Pallet. I didn't substitute anything other than adding falsies.

You can see in this picture how the lipstick is quite light - its darker than this picture due to my flash that flushed out some colour.

its too cold in February unles you want to experience it. I personally don't like make-up other than my smokey eyes on me. Everytime I get new stuff I get so many emails asking me to do a demo and I for one am not a demo girl.

Hmmm Hello Kitty? I'll have to ask my very low key source.

Livia said...

can you comment on the colour pay-offs of the Wisteria trio shadows?.. did you have to apply a lot for them to show up or they were vibrant enough?. thanks.. =)

BeautyJunkie said...

May Nguyen said...
