Today I went with my mom to pick up my aunt from the airport. At the same time, Ate Hazel (our former maid) had gone to the PO to claim my CS palette for me. I'm so happy to have finally gotten it--I was so nervous that some of the shadows would break, but when I saw it and inspected it...thankfully, none had.
Here are some gratituous shots, including some swatches (swiped once).
I'm in love! Without any primer they show up brightly, so what more if I had used primer? And even after intense rubbing they don't fade. I will definitely re-purchase if I have to (I don't think I will soon!). One thing that disappointed me was that there was hardly any oranges in the shade that I wanted. No problem at all. XD
The palette cost $21.95 when I got it, + shipping (USPS first class international) of around 13 dollars...so it cost me $35 in total, but my aunt bought it for me and omg! Free makeup! Well, now I don't feel so bad about the mineral makeup that I bought (I get it on monday). XD
My aunt is amazing, you know why? Because aside from the CS palette, she also got me a Lowepro bag for my DSLR. No more toting it around in my shabby Nikon bag! Ha! :D And aside from that...
She gave me a Maybelline Instant Age Rewind cream foundation in sandy beige with SPF18.It was totally unexpected, and I'm really glad, but I won't have a chance to use it until I finish with my derma treatment. I will have to find out if it's much better than the one I have now...since their gel foundation CAKES LIKE CRAAAAZY.
Here are pictures:
I so can't wait to try new looks with my new makeup!! I'll wait for my mineral makeup to get here so I can play around with the e/s. Now I know what I need to buy next--brushes!
