Make Up For Ever #311 Eyeshadow

Here’s kind of a mish-mash of shades — plummy/browns.

  • #311 is a shimmery burgundy shade. It runs a little on the reddish wine side, and the shimmer is noticeable without being too much. It’s a diamond shadow, so it has a frostier finish than other iridescent shadows by Make Up For Ever.
  • #141 is a sheer, slightly shimmery pale mauve-pink. It doesn’t have the best color pay off, but it can be layered to get a little more pop out of it.
  • #162 is a matte, brownish-burgundy shade. It can be layered for increased intensity, though it has decent color pay off. I like it for the crease, personally!
  • #84 is a shimmery, smoky green with gray tone. It has golden shimmer laced throughout. It reminded me of a lighter MAC Greensmoke eyeshadow, actually.
  • #47 is a matte, grayed-down green. It’s kind of like a drab green in a way, but it’s a nice way to add depth to the crease without adding a lot of darkness.

Which of these are your favorites?

Temptalia Asks You

Do you like your eyeshadows in individual pots or palettes? Why?

Temptalia's Answer.

I like palettes that I can switch around (so custom ones, I guess!), because I find myself not using stuff that’s individually packaged.

HauteLook is having a Stila sale!

The sale is going on now at HauteLook! :)   SO exciting!  They have a ton of the Barbie Loves Stila products at 50% off!  I ended up picking up all of the 24KT glosses, the Barbie eyeshadow quad, and the Barbie shoe eyeshadow trio.  $107 shipped (including tax!) — not bad at all.  Saved like $90!

I want to hear about any hauls you make, too!

NORDSTROM Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom.com is now up and open with this year’s Anniversary Sale! :)

Every year, I always get excited about the sale, just because I tend not to purchase much besides shoes and beauty products from Nordstrom… but the sale always allows me a little more room to maneuver and consider other purchases, too.  Time to get tempted! :)  Happy shopping — share your hauls in the comments!

I ended up getting two pairs of BCBGirls pumps and a pair of blue suede flats!
