Look closer.

So, let's get back to my yesterdays haul for a moment:

There is:

MAC Fresh Green Mineralize eye shadow:

I really didn't plan to buy this, but I'm currently having this thing for greens, so I decided to buy it.

I'm not so sure about the darker side, which isn't IMO green especially not FRESH green, it's more of brownish, grayish green (-ish). But the lighter green is just perfect.

MAC One-off eyeshadow from Starflash collection

I didn't plan to buy this one either, but I wanted something really GREEN.
I was pondering between MAC humid and this, and finally took this one. I thought that Humid was bit too close of Gosh Emerald.

This is green, maybe not as bright green I was looking for in the first place, but best green that I found right now.

MAC Parfait Amour eyeshadow

This one was on my shopping list, since I really am a purple freak *g*
I just love how this color is sort of chameleon, blue and purple and all. It actually reminds me of my wedding dress.

I have to admit, that this wasn't quite as cool on my lid that it was in swatch. It went really blue on the lid, not purple as I thought it would go.
I'm still happy I bought it. *g*

MAC Painterly paint pot

As much as a love my Gosh Love That Ivory as a primer, there are times when I don't want to use shimmer as a primer. So this was kinda MUST to shop.

There isn't really anything else I could say about it. It's a foundation that comes in little jar, and it's not meant for the whole face LOL.

Makeup Store Ra cybershadow

I have had a thing for getting a good yellow e/s for a while. The MuS Sunset eyedust was a disappointment, so I've drooling over this Ra.

It's yellow, yes, maybe not as bright as it looks in the jar. Quite good pigmentation, but considering the price (15 euros / ~$21,5) I would expect REALLY good quality. This turns a bit dirty colored on the lid.
But anyway, it's yellow.

Mschic creme eyeliner

Lately I've been using my Blackground paint pot as a liner *blush*, so I thought it would finally be time to try real creme eyeliner. Since I'm not apparently getting my MAC Blacktrack fluidliner or anything else from that seller (long story short = She apparently stole my money), I decided to give this a try.

I've been using a liquid eyeliner for years now, so change is not gonna be easy. This felt a bit sticky, I don't know if their suppose to be a bit sticky? I really can't say much of this, maybe I'll come back to it some time.

Mschic Grass Mineral eyeshadow

Matte green. This was cheap, so I bought it.

It's pigmented like all the other Mschic products that I've used.

Mschic Heart Throb

Oh so cool!
This is both blue AND purple. Yet another chameleon from Mschic, just like the Mint Frost Chocolate I have too. This is just gorgeus. And pigmented, and it was cheap too.

Mschic Bright Gloss Bright Purple

I really don't know why I actually bought this, maybe the little purple freak in me striked again. The bottle is just too awesome colored *g*
Too bad it isn't purple in the lips:

It's just a gloss.
There was also green, orange and yellow lipglosses, but I left them to be *g*

Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation

I went throught a awful trouble to get this.
There wasn't Revlon at Stockmann, neither Sokos (both sell almost everything you can imagine). Then friendy woman from Stockmann called from someone to ask what store sells Revlon in Finland, and I found out that Anttila is supposed to sell Revlon. I was kinda reliefed, since there is an Anttila on my way to the trainstation.
So, I went to that Anttila, looked around, and guess what? They don't sell Revlon at there.
So I head to the other Anttila that is in the center of Helsinki.
Too bad that after I've run in there, I find put that there is major sale, where you can buy 3 and pay of only 2.
So the ques were several meters long. I seach for Revlon, find it, find out that there isn't Ivory for oily skin, take Ivory for normal skin, and then I go to the end of the line.
It was a long wait.

But, I got my Colorstay, and I'm quite satisfied to it.
I was impressed when I hugged my husband, and my forehead didn't leave any marks on the black shirt. *g*

Only negative thing I currently have to say, is the bottle. There isn't anything to help the stuff to come out of the bottle. No pump or anything.

But anyway, here some swatches of the eyeshadows:

And one thing abou Mschic jars:

What's with the lids? Why on EARTH every lid needs to be different? Really annoing.

Then my yesterdays makeup:

The next thing is really AWESOME:
When I went to Stockmann, and their MAC counter, the girl in there REMEMBERED me from the last time. She started to compliment my makeup, she even complimented my makeup to her workpartner. Her opinion was that I should come and work with them to MAC counter *g*
I was like THIIIIIIS happy *g*

And finally, here's mu today's makeup:


  1. I love your LOTD! And all those pretty colors, awww....
    And the mac girls are right, you would be great at working there! And if you ever do, let me know, so I can stop by and say hi next time I am in Helsinki! :-)

  2. I guess that I'd had first go to makeup school to get official MUA papers, before I could work there :( But I'll let you know if pigs fly and I'll work there someday :D
