This past week I had the distinct pleasure of going out after having a full hour or so to get ready!
That's right...no glancing in the mirror three minutes before departure time and swiping on a little blush and praying that the bar will be dark and everyone will be liquored before I get there.
I tried on three pairs of shoes!
And, I got to play with a MAC Paint Pot!
One of the Fafi Collection, I tested out Cash Flow, a straight up gold cream shadow with a hint of a green undertone.
The shadow is what is really awesome.
It goes on smoothly (I used my fingers, I didn't have THAT much time on my hands) and pretty sheerly. This is especially since it looks like the mud of the Dead Sea in the pot.
I was able to layer it on a little at a time and make it darker by my lash line and sheerer up near my brows.
With a heavy coat of mascara, I was good to go!
After a night at Marvin dealing with some guy who just swore he knew me from somewhere (hey, buddy, maybe I'm just kind of generic looking?) I got home and there was nary a crease in sight! This stuff is strong...but it slid right off with a little of my trusty Almay remover.
As is my vice, I eyed a few other colors that might get added to my stash, including Artifact, Greenscape and Moss Scape.
Wow, so much for any resolution to save and not buy more makeup, right?
