New MAC Pigments and Blue EOTD

Hi gals!

Missed me? :D
Sorry about my recent absence ; I haven't posted as much as I wanted to lately; things have been quite hectic this last week, and I've been feeling really tired and worn out as well.
Anyway; today I thought I'd show you my newest additions to my MAC pigment stash. These arrived the other day, I got them from TheBodyNeeds which is where I buy my pigment samples most of the time. Shipping is reasonable, she ships quickly and the price is awesome as well; $1.79 each (1/4 tsp). AND; they are authentic to the best of my knowledge, I can highly recommend you to check out this site. The inventory changes all the time, so visit often :)

So, this is what I got this time...

Top Row L-R: Reflects Blackened Red, Reflects Transparent Teal, Reflects Turquatic,
Naval Blue, Sunnydaze
Bottom Row L-R: Softwash Grey, Pastorale, White, Azreal Blue

Reflects Blackened Red, Reflects Transparent Teal, Reflects Turquatic,
Naval Blue, Sunnydaze

Softwash Grey, Pastorale, White, Azreal Blue

Excuse the typo; it's "Sunnydaze", not Sunnydays... ;)

Shade descriptions:

-Reflects Blackened Red - Sparkling Burgundy
-Reflects Transparent Teal -
Sparkling White with Turquoise
-Reflects Turquatic - Sparkling Bright Turquoise
-Naval Blue - Subdued, Frosted Navy Blue
-Sunnydaze - Soft Apricot-Taupe w Silver Pearlized Pigments
-Softwash Grey - Grey with Purple Pearl
-Pastorale - Khaki Green Gold Pearl and Sparkle
-White - Soft Pearl White
-Azreal Blue - Cool Soft Blue with Silver Pearl

I used colors from this haul for my EOTD....

I put Azreal Blue all over lid up to brow bone. Then I put Naval Blue in the outer V and crease. Applied White on brow bone and inner corners. Lined both upper and lower lashes with NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Sapphire and put on mascara (Maybelline Colossal Volume, black)

And.... voilá!

I don't mean to stare...really! :)

I want to wish you all a fabulous, Happy Easter!!!

Easter kisses!

Of course I've missed the lady who shares the letter V with! I hope your feeling better. The eye make up is stunning!! Just gorgeous! I'll have to check this web site! Happy Easter!

Phyrra said...

Aww, besos to you too!
Love the beautiful eyes and lips!
I really like how you did your eyes with the Sapphire, Naval Blue and Azreal Blue.
Reflects Transparent Teal, Reflect Turquotic and Softwash Grey look like gorgeous colors, too.

Gorgeous look! Nice colors you choose for your pigment haul. Lovely family photo. Have a Happy Easter Vanessa.

Robyn said...

I love the gradation of blues. Simply lovely. Now tell me...what's on your lips? I love it.

Vanessa said...

Hi Velvet!
Thank you so much; I do feel a lot better now, thank you :)

Hi Phyrra!
Thank you, I like the blues, they bring a nice depth to my green eyes I think.

Hi Lucy!
Thank you so much sweetie!

Hi Robyn!
Thanks!! Hmm; trying to remember what lippie it was I put on...a NYX one, no doubt ;) I'm almost positive it was.. oh yeah, got it! It is NYX Saturn with NYX Clio on top :)

Nixxy said...

oooh turquatic would make a great polish! Lookin' good, babe :) and have a great Easter :)

Vanessa said...

Thanks sweetie pie :)
You have a good one to!!

Robyn said...

Thhanks for letting me know. I love combining my NYX lippies too.

Vanessa said...

Yeah; but it's bizarre that I have to combine two when I have 70 in my stash... You'd think there should be one color that's perfect without having to combine.. ;)
