Blush: theBalm and PANDORA’S Makeup Box swatch and comparison

I’ve always thought that having one blush was good enough – when you find the perfect colour for your complexion, you shouldn’t need another, right? It would just look weird… right? Here are the two blushes I own and have tried: theBalm’s Hot Mama! and PANDORA’S Makeup Box blush in St. Tropez.

Mini-haul and Applebee’s

Picked up some goodies from the MAC counter in The Bay and from the cosmetics section in Walmart. This is my first in-store MAC purchase that’s actually for me. I’ve went into MAC stores before (usually with my MAC-obsessed friends – I’m looking at you, angelandthings) mostly to just look around. The things I buy are usually gifts for friends. But this time was just for me 🙂

From left to right:

  1. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in 060 Gumdrop
  2. MAC Paint in Bare Canvas sample
  3. MAC Fluidline in Added Goodness

Sephora and TheBalm haul from October

Back in October, I made a post commending my friend angelandthings for hauling makeup for us from the US.  I got everything back in January, but have barely started using any of it yet! I am obsessed with getting eye makeup especially, but hardly ever wear makeup on a daily basis. And while the variety is lovely to have, I find myself sticking to the same few products for a neutral look, just because I’m too lazy to get something new or I’m not adventurous enough to wear vibrant colours without an occasion.

Here is the Sephora haul:

MAKE UP FOREVER Lesson 1 Natural Eyes (far left):

  1. 2 full sized 0.21 oz Aqua Creams: 13 Warm Beige; 15 Taupe
  2. 2 x 0.025 oz Aqua Eyes: 0L Mat Black; 2L Pearly Brown
