So I went out for a bit this afternoon, to check out the i nuovi anniversary sale. What I didn't know is that you need to purchase 3 identical items to enjoy the $9.90 price. So you can't choose a combination of 2 e/s, and 1 blusher etc... thankfully my sisters were with me, and among us, we choose the colors which we would all enjoy using, (3 eyeshadows, and 3 blushers) which is a fab deal, considering the total cost can only get you 2 MAC eyeshadows or lipsticks.
Speaking of MAC, I went to check out the holiday sets, but I think not all the stuff are on display, and I think the only thing which I want would be the mineralised blushers (esp Conjure Up -- check out swatches and images at Temptalia). But when I asked the MA there, she didn't even know what I am talking about----- WHICH ISN'T EVEN SURPRISING TO ME ANYMORE. Well, regardless, I don't forsee myself stalking the MAC counters for the holiday stuff.
Because I was at Vivocity TANGS, I thought I could check out YSL and use my vouchers to buy a couple of lipsticks, but I realised there isn't a YSL counter there. Which means I have to make another trip downtown another day before its demise/ disappearance from the stores.
Ok, back to the title of this entry: My i nuovi haul. When I was swatching the eyeshadows at the counter, I noticed some eyeshadows are more chunky glittery than others. Dynamite would certainly fall into that category. But most of them are very velvety in texture. So creamy and super pigmented. One color which jumped out at me (I think it's called ROCK?) was sadly OOS. But I did get 3 wearable/ neutral/ metallic shades. Their names are Techno Spotlight, and Dewdrops.
And for my blushers, I choose the colors which are , I bought Spice (plum color), Dusk (bright orange red), Astro (deep pink). I also stayed away from the shimmery/ glittery ones.
Blushers from L to R: Dusk, Astro and Spice
Eyeshadows from L to R: Dewdrop, Spotlight, Techno
The colors are more pigmented in real life than pictures show.
And to be honest, I am not crazy about the packaging, while I like the see through casing, but the dome shaped cover is kind of bulky, and I can't stack them up or anything. So DEPOTTING is the way to go. I have no more space in my MAC palettes, but I have seen people using DVD cases as palettes, and this my attempt to organise my new stuff.
Things you need: DVD case, mounting tape
At the bottom of each container, there is a little hole, you just use a needle to 'poke' and the pan will come out.
Before the mounting tape, I positioned the colors and see if they fit, and match. :)
Then I stuck the tape underneath each pan.
And ta DA DA, look ma, they are stuck firmly.
Update: I pimped the palette, put a 'cover' page to it.
Hope this gives you some idea of how to store your i nuovi stuff, Diana -- I am talking to you! :)
