So I am very happy today.
Why? Because my boyfriend actually WANTED to drive me to get makeup. He was actually excited and pushed me to go so he could drive. I couldn't believe it, but then he explained lol. Usually we have to go through school zones afterschool, but since today is TAKS testing (statewide academic level testing), I didn't have to come to school since I'm a senior and I already passed it all from last year. Having said that, that means there's no school zone to bump into, and my boyfriend was excited. And in general, he wanted to drive me since he now has a car and he likes to drive me places--yay!
sooooooo I guess my trip to CVS ended one of my lemmings: Milani Blue Lagoon and Shamrock eyeshadows. I guess I won't be trying to decide what green to get since I bought that green--and I totally do not regret it at all--I love them :), and my bf paid for them too! what a sweetie ^_^
What's even better that I took the LAST Shamrock on the shelf! These guys were selling like crazy. There was only 3 Blue Lagoons left so I took one of those. What I was disappointed in was that they still don't have the color Buff for the Milani Smooth Finish Powder Foundation. I just don't get why they dont' have it, but on the bright side, they DO have the creme foundation in Buff, so now I know that I can restock on them if I need to. BUT I really was looking forward to looking for powder foundation since I probably would wear that more than creme full-coverage foundation. Maybe Target might have it...I dont' know, but during spring break, since Target is located right next to ULTA for me, I'll take a poke in that store and see if Milani exists there.
Anyhoo, onward to pics and swatches:
Shamrock to the left, Blue Lagoon to the right
I swatched it over NYX Concealer in a Jar in Fair. DRY-applied swatches, NOT wet-applied
Hope that helps some people with how it looks. Vanessa's swatches are a lot more clearer than mine, so you might want to check hers out. My swatches were done in bright afternoon high sun natural light coming into my window. I know the colors look flat, but it isn't like that in person. You see more shimmer in person, but subtle shimmer. For some reason my colors didn't turn out as shimmery and bright as Vanessa's, but then again, she did hers wet-applied, maybe that's the difference.
*insert mini intermission here*
Okay I just went to my sink, got some water, and did a wet-application with Blue Lagoon and the blue looks a LOT more vibrant when wet. The blue is more pronounced and you definitely see the shimmer more. WOW....I really like the results when the stuff is applied wet--it looks really nice.
Now I just need to wait for Spring break to get to Target and ULTA and more hauls! XD Man, ABB has totally made me broke x.x! Ever since I joined and lurked that website, my money went straight to makeup. lol, but I like it nevertheless that I"m getting makeup. I've been wanting to get them for quite a while but never could and never knew which to buy.
Alrightee, so that's about it until Spring break for Haulage. I'm definitely looking forward to trying to get the Milani powder and NYX mascara.
see yall later!
dangit...I always forget to tag my photos since I'm not used to doing that. I gotta learn to remember to tag photos
