Sephora Haul - More Hot Weather Items!
I decided I wanted more of the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream products since I'd been enjoying the one I have so much. My first purchase was shade 17 which is a plummy brown metallic, I wanted to get more everyday colors. I went in looking at the lighter champagne color, 13 and the taupe 15. I found the champagne to be very light and while nice, nothing I felt I had to have. I didn't like how the taupe swatched on me (too brown maybe). So I tried swatching others, gold (11), copper (12), steel (2). Decided I liked the copper and steel, that I'd be comfortable using those as single color looks on those days I wanted waterproof eyes.
I wandered around the store thinking about my new Benefit posietint and mulled over getting another cheek stain/gel product. In the end, I decided I remembered really enjoying the peachy pink gold MUFE Aqua Cream. Went back to swatch it, shade 5 and it was pretty as I remember. And you know my weakness for gold shimmer...
So I pulled the trigger on those three shades. And snagged a travel sized Urban Decay All Nighter spray, I had been thinking about ordering one of the Skindinavias sprays but hadn't gotten around to it. I have a wedding I'll be the maid of honor in coming up in a month and I was hoping to find something to set my makeup. It's a summer event and I tend to get warm and sweaty easily, and if I could get a good set on my makeup there would be less to fret over. We'll see how it goes, I do have the moisturizing spray from Urban Decay (Dew Me) and unfortunately I never really noticed any difference.
My lips are always dry, even keeping them covered in some sort of lip goo they are in a constant state of flaking. I knew the MUFE cream would be drying, but I tried some of the peachy pink on to see how miserable it would be. I put some Nivea lip balm on after applying and to my surprise, it didn't look bad. Interestingly enough, a couple hours have past and the lip balm doesn't seem to be breaking down the Aqua Cream too badly. Huh!
