I just ordered the Mac Dubonnet today, thanks C-Dot, i have been looking for a more browny red colour and lets hope it gives me the same success with the fellas too!

Satisfaction guaranteed! :) We should all really be thanking my mother, who put it on me for a photoshoot once.

Today was MAC Baron's Rose lipstick:

And Bare Escentuals Buxom eyeshadow in Pug. This stuff is fantastic, the effect isn't shiny at all and it stays on like nobody's business!

C-dot - What colour is the 'pug' shadow, please? I'm always looking for long-wearing shadows.

It's described on the website as "smoky pewter." I'm wearing it in this picture (I hope you can see...)

Their other colours are here :) I actually got the shadow as employee gratis from Sephora, and it was lucky, because I would have overlooked it otherwise. A five star recommendation from this corner!

Is it a cream shadow? I love all the BE products I've tried, but haven't used those shadows.

Also, very cool that some proceeds go to service animals, but I'm mad they don't have a "basset hound" shadow. What's up with that? [huh]

Same thing I wear every day during the summer:
Maybelline gel eyeliner
Mary Kay mascara
Revlon cherries in the snow lips.
Tomorrow, we finally get out of the 80sF, so the lips will change to either Besame Cherry Red or Rockalily Roulette Red.

Kamikat - Your hair looks red in your avatar, how did you like the Cherries in the Snow lipstick? I'm auburn hair with freckles, brown eyes, fair skin with gold undertones, and I just can't wear it. I wanted to love it, but it is a shocking Lady Gaga-esque pink on me. The polish, on the other hand, is a really pretty red! I wonder if I just got a bad tube...

My hair is much darker now. I would call it a hot pink but a lot less Lady Gaga with darker hair. I'll post a pic tomorrow. I've already taken off my face for the night.

Thanks love! It looks great, you look smashing! Will add it to my list....

Btw - I love Cherries in the snow, but i do think i perhaps isn't for all. I'm a brunette like Kamikat and love the shade on me, it's almost a magenta colour, not at all an 'in your face pink'. I do believe they have changed the formulaton. The nail polish is to die for and one of my faves!

I know! I want them to have a Labrador shadow. :p

It's not cream, it's such an intensely packed powder that it has a satiny, almost creamy finish. Pure heaven!

I wear the same makeup every day whether for daytime wear or an evening out:
tinted moisturizer instead of foundation
three colors of mineral eyeshadow, coordinated to go well with the color of the outfit I'm wearing
pencil eyeliner, either a drk brown, navy or black
powder blush, one of two colors
pencil lip liner (always the same coral shade no matter the lipstick shade)
lipstick, one shade or a blend of two shades to also coordinate with my outfit. I have four lipsticks;, a peach, a bright geranium pink, a coral-brownish, and an orange-red

Oh my goodness! I just had to post since I know several of us have noticed the MAC Dubonnet thanks to C-dot.... I bought some the other day and I am in LOVE with it. I have been looking for a perfect bricky colour like this and it's just such a nice match. :D

Today I'm wearing... chapstick. And brow powder, Anastasia "strawburn" brow powder. My eye is restored to normal, but I'm waiting to wear any makeup until the last 2 days of my antibiotic course are over, just in case. I cannot WAIT to put my mascara back on!

Is this what a trendsetter feels like? :D I keed, I keed.

Glad to hear your eye is improving!
