My Spell Cosmetics haul came in and I couldn’t wait to try these pigment eyeshadows! There was a sale on this about a week or two ago and I got all of this for around $50 including shipping. Not too shabby. I’ve been wanting to try these for awhile since the colors come off really pigmented.

Also, I’ve been looking forever for MAC’s Emote Blush which is pretty much discontinued and I’ve checked the Leesburg Outlet and never find it there or they’re sold out. I obviously didn’t search hi and low for it bc the two CCO near me in MD happen to have a stack of them when I gave them a call yesterday. So as soon as work was done, I made a dash to my car and drove over and picked up as many Emote blushes I could get my hands on as well as a few other lipsticks that I wanted.

Aren’t they pretty? =P
Also on a side note, I’ve decided to have a back to back contest so go here if you want to enter. I’m going to give away one MAC Emote Blush to a lucky winner just because I love this blush and I want someone else to have one as well. =)

    I know my bestie DSK couldn’t get it all because of their policy.

    but glad that you were able to get a lot of goodies from there! you know its not that easy to find it sometimes at CCO.

  10. @MiuMiu haha.. yeah =P

    @SugarTink it’s used mainly as a contour blush or sometimes a bronzer but you would just apply it near the hollows of your cheeks and up when you make a fishy face =)
