Hello pretty ladies! Sorry I’ve been quiet on the blog front this week. I had a hard bout with a cough, cold, and flu (the trifecta!) earlier this week and I was in bed all day.
Now that I’ve bounced back from that nasty crap — well, sort of — I took a trip to my nearest MAC store to grab a couple of eyeshadows. Oh yes, a happy ending. I decided on Arena eyeshadow (thanks to Michelle of Lipstick Rules). It’s an amazing light peach that is perfect for an all-over colour wash. The other eyeshadow, Coquette, is a gorgeous taupe that is perfect for the crease for a work friendly look.

Ah, why do mattes swatch so blotchy!
By the way, I was surprised to hear that I am now NC35; a far cry from last summer’s NC42. My gosh, I feel so pale!
Look What I Won!
I came home to see this in the mail! I was lucky enough to win one of Vasanti Cosmetics Go Canada! Palette during their Olympics giveaway. Vasanti gave away 14 palettes to match the 14 gold medals our Canadian athletes won in Vancouver. By the way, how incredible were we in the Olympics? I’m so proud to be Canadian!
So, are you ready? Good. Here are the swatches.
The gold was the least pigmented of all the eyeshadows, but very finely milled. The silver had chunkier sparkles. The bronze and white were the most pigmented of all, with the same creamy feel as the gold. Just look at that bronze! I can hardly wait to wear it. The red is a very sheer red lipstick that is perfect for red lippie wimps.
I just loooove this palette. I’ll definitely be looking out for other Vasanti products in the near future.
Vasanti Cosmetics is sold in select Shoppers Drugmart, Rexall Pharmaplus, and online.
