Hi hi, a quick LOTD and some pink blush swatches at the end of this entry.
Foundation: Sana Pore Putty base, Estee Lauder DW Foundation mixed with Chanel Pro Lumiere, Cover Girl Pressed Powder
Cheeks: Cargo Amalfi Blush, and NARS Laguna ** I am liking how Amalfi applies on my skin, it gives great color, without being too overpowering, and the silver flecks adds a nice glow... and I mean glow.
Lips: MAC In Sync Lip Pencil, YSL RV No19 Frivolous Pink
Eyes: Urban Decay Shattered e/s, Benefit High Brow pencil, and MAC Solar White e/s
Liner, Lashes, Lenses: Loreal Superliner, Palz (Ardel 120 dupe), Geo Lenses (nudy grey)
And the following are some swatches and comparisons of pink blushes I own. I only picked the pink blushes which look similar to the Cargo Blush Amalfi. Most of the blushes which I am comparing are quite hard to find, or LE, with the exception of Pink Swoon, which is a MAC permanent color.
NARS Mata Hari, Smashbox Dolce Vita, MAC Pleasantry, Pink Swoon, Illamasqua Chased, Cargo Amalfi
They are all different, in my pink blush dictionary.
Perhaps in sunlight, you can see the subtle differences, especially among the shimmery pinks.
And Kim (ladeekim) and I were twittering that day about storage and blushes, and hence the next picture, which is a collection of the current amount of blushes I own, plus or minus a few MIA ones and a couple of blush palettes which are not shown.
Most of them are MAC blushes (which I never depot because I don't want to risk breaking a few blushes at one time, esp during travels). Then I have a few here and there from misc brands like NARS, Benefit, Illamasqua, etc. I haven't actually counted the exact number, but let's not go there, OK? It's not the most extensive collection out there, but I like to call this my happy drawer -- though the lipsticks drawer is quickly catching up as the next fave.
Yup, that's all, and thanks for looking. Do let me know if you want a break down of the blushes, or any product questions.
