Faces of the past week

I must say I haven't been at the top of my game during this past week, Fall makes me a bit uninspired, particularly outfit-wise, and when you lose 20 min deciding on what to wear and changing twice, you don't have much time left for makeup.
Plus, it's now too dark to take pictures when I leave the house, so I have to do with iPhone pics.

First look was done with the good old Mac Shadowy Lady quad from the Cult of Cherry collection. This was issued in the Fall of 2008, but I only got it from allcosmeticswholesale.com pretty recently, since I had always regretted not having bought it back then.
You don't see it very well but I used a pop of Blue Flame in the inner crease for a change.
Lipstick is Mac Aristocatic from the Fabulous Feline collection, I love that it's purple but totally wearable.

Speaking of blue, I wore OPI Ski Teal we Drop from the Swiss collection, this week, and I'm really loving it! It's what I wanted Suzy Says Feng Shui to be, and it's super glossy without a top coat.

This is a quick look I did on Saturday to go shopping. I was actually trying on a new face primer, which I'll be telling you more about in a few days :-) On the eyes I'm wearing Mac Zinc Zone Greasepaint blended, with Vex and Carbon eyeshadows. Lipgloss is Mac Lap of Luxury from the Fabulous Felines collection.

I realize that's a lot of Mac I wore this past week! I'll try to use UD and Nars more in the coming week, I think.
What looks have you been doing lately?


  1. Lately I've been wearing a soft red lip with a cheek stain and a little definition for the eyes.

    Nice pics! If only I had the courage to show my face on blogger :(

  2. It's always a bit of a wrench to move away from nice summery eye shadow shades in Autumn, but I like that my foundation isn't melting off in the heat anymore!

  3. Oh I loooove the nail polish, I recently got it, but I haven't tried it yet! Wow it's so shiny without a top coat?!

  4. I love love love the 2nd look : your skin is freaking perfect (I hate you ! ;-)))
    That purple coat looks awesome too from what I see of the collar. I tried blue nail polish lately (bought 3 different shades but my hands looks weird with that color on my nails ...sad , sad ...)

  5. @cbsg: that sounds lovely - maybe you could show your eyes only? :-)

    @Kat; yes, let's look a the bright side of things, I guess

    @Stavroula: yes, no base, no topcoat, 2 coats of np!

    @MUA: thanks, it's a faux-leather jacket I bought in Sicily, I am in love with it!

  6. Love these looks. And that nail polish is awesome. :)

  7. I've been wearing a lot of neutral looks with my UD Naked palette lately. I'm taking a break from colour. But I know I'll come back to it, as I just received my UD Book of Shadows, Vol.III

  8. That teal nail varnish is GORGEOUS, I must get it!

  9. Are we allowed to post in french?
    The nail polish "essence" 64 Trendsetter that we bought together just look the same as the OPI on the picture (rhooo, ça met la pression que savoir qu'on écrit à une "pro" de l'anglais...). I'm totally under pressure...

  10. @ Millie, sweetie, you can write in French if you want, of corse :-)


I love getting comments, thanks for sharing your thoughts!
