MAC Haul + Ka'oir

Here's a baby haul from earlier this month. I really really really wanted like 99.9% of the Iris Apfel Collection but to make a long story short, I didn't get the email/ By the time I checked the site Flamingo & Pink Pigeon were gone/I called my nearest store & the lying broad told me it was an online collection only & she didn't even know what Pink Pigeon was. So I gave up on it. Like two days later, my girl Jenni gets hers from her MAC store. Imagine my confusion. I'm not going to bash the lady I called too much, because it was a MAC inside a Macy's. So it's probably true that they didn't get that collection but ughhh lol why tell me it's online only?? I could've been calling other stores looking for it. I lost two days of precious Pink Pigeon & Flamingo hunting time. So anyway!! By that time, I was over it! Honestly though, I was just bitter as hell & didn't want anything else from that one. lol We got Beach Sand & A Perfect Day from the Naturally collection & the Blue Brown pigment that they finally put back up! My boyfriend ended up getting me Pink Pigeon from ebay, I think. I told him not to, that I didn't want it. (secretly I did) lol but didn't want him to go out of his way because of some dumb lady. Soooooo glad he did though 'cause it's lovely. lol ily bby

Aa-ya-yaii. Okay so I recently got Trina's Neon Rockstarr from Ka'oir. I saw what I thought was going to be a neon pink matte lipstick! But when I got it, I noticed it has kind of like a frost finish. It doesn't really show up in my picture below but you can kind of tell in this video. It's still a really pretty pink but it looks like the lips are cracking when they move. I'm really trying to love this lipstick 'cause it wasn't cheap but I'm not completely loving it yet. Maybe with some gloss? We shall see.

For comparison purposes I pulled out some lipsticks that I thought would be in the same range as Neon Rockstarr & Pink Pigeon. I didn't really think I had anything similar to either of them. & That certainly was the case for NR. But at the last minute, I remembered Milani's Rose Hip (which is why it's not pictured above lol) So I did a quick swatch of it with Pink Pigeon & even though the finishes are different, the color is pretty darn close! Not exact but kind of close.

I swatched some similar nudes I had to these to compare. A Perfect Day is like a warmer & much better version of Nostalgic. Nostalgic for some reason, doesn't apply very well. It's really nice & creamy but I've noticed now, that it kind of just sits on top of my lips. It doesn't absorb into the skin on your lips very much. (Erm. If that makes any sense) If I smack my lips, a lot of it comes off! Like it's just sitting on top? While, A Perfect Day is.. well.. perfect. I swatched Iconic twice because I wanted to see it next to A Perfect Day.

MAC Blue Brown Pigment. I first knew I had to have this pigment when the Lovely Becca from Nars Cupake was wonderful enough to compare it to the second Definer in the Comfort Zone palette. (which I lovee!) You can see her awesome swatches HERE. She compares this one, MAC's Club, & Label Whore from Too Faced to the WnW one. They're all pretty similar but man, this pigment just jumped out at me lol. I haven't worn it yet but it's so beautiful.

Here's a pic of me wearing the Definer from Comfort Zone. Pretty similar, right? I'll try to make a look, asap with this pigment to see how it looks on the lids. Eeep, this color excites me! lol I've never loved a color so much. I think I have a problem.


Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you enjoyed the swatches ^.<

I did a review on the duo chrome Intrepid from Loreal's line. Its a dupe of Blue brown pigment. I compared it to wnw palette, and the wnw palette is def a look more sheer than the Loreal HIP pigment. I LOVE DUOCHROMES!!!!
