Trying out MAC's Show Orchid and MAC's Studio Fix Fluid NW30

Okay, I just completed 30 minutes of yoga and 15 min of Bootylicious Buns, I am exhausted, have acid reflux (due to turning head upside down) and smelly, so I'll make this quick. 
This is from way back in Nov when I decided to buy a different foundation b/c MAC Select SPF 15 made me a grease ball in less than two hours. I also decided to play around with Show Orchid (and I got my xmas gift I wanted to play with my camera) 

I also picked up Select Moisturecover Concealer in NW25 (Swatched)

oooh how's moisturecover concealer? ive been wanting to switch to liquid as oppose to cream, i find cream cakes too easily...
i pull off color? LOL i really try HARD! haha, but after i put it on and go out i alwayyyys regret it and wished i did just a black/brown smokey look because it's so out there and NONE of my friends wear anything like what i wear as far as makeup goes. but whatever! i rock it ;)

That lippie color looks awesome on you! I have had my eye on Show Orchid for awhile, but wasn't sure that I'd be able to pull it off. After seeing your photos, I really, really want it! It's so pretty!

That sucks that that foundation made you greasy after two hours. Ugh... I can't use products that make me shiny -- I'm shiny enough! LOL!

I love your camera! Your photos are so high quality! Now that I'm blogging, I really want to get a better camera. Our Nikon Cool Pix just ain't cuttin' it! Shoot dang... LOL!

@ Crystal - I will be doing a review on the concealer now that I have a proper setting powder, I was using MAC's Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NW30 but it was still creasing on me within 2 minutes!
Cream does cake easily, that's why I think I'm returning boi-ing concealer.
I know how you feel about color, I tend to not touch it too much, it's very neglected! Rock it girl!

@ Celly - Thank you! Yes, you very much get lots of heads turning, sometimes it feels like they're saying with their eyes "geez, what carnival is she coming from?!" LOL

@ ellinelle - Thank you :)

@ Mara - Oh my, thank you so much!!

@ Miss P - <3 Studio FIx :) Thank you, babe!!

@ Kimber doll - Thank you, doll!!

@ *Holley* - Who'd have thunk I could pull it off?! Thank you, hun!

@ xLovelyMakeupx - Thank you!!!! No need ;-) I"m glad it made your day!

@ Kate Gene - Show Orchid is that scary color that I've owned forever and have only worn it a handful amount of times, but as of recent I'm going rogue!

Shiny = NO NO

My husband really outdid himself! I told him no big gifts in 2010, I received more than I can handle in 2009 (still haven't used my Wii enough...). I saw your Nikon pics, they're great! Learning how to use the lighting and Macro and tv settings are essential. I really need to take photog classes again...I think I'll just buy one of those "for Dummies" books, lol

@ Iva - Thank you!!

@ Twinn - Thank you!! I will hopefully get around to a full blown review on the concealer.

@ Zanah - Thank you!!


Thanks to all of you for coming by and commenting on my little blog!! I love you all :)

Kate Gene said...

I love that you're busting out the Show Orchid now! Or as you put it, "going rogue". LOL!

G sounds very sweet! How come you don't use your Wii much? We sold ours because it was collecting dust. It was so much fun when we did use it though! I was the bowling champion! (In real life, I can't bowl to save my life!)

My pictures were actually just taken with my camera phone. I still don't know how to use my Nikon settings! LOL! I need a tutorial! Every time I change the setting to take up close photographs, they come out blurry. This dummy needs a Dummies book. Ha ha ha!
