  • Love Monaco Blue and African Violet, these are right up my alley and those 3 lipsticks are really tempting.

  • OMG — that Stila Periwinkle eyeliner is BOSS! I love that shade of blue so much! Love to see you incorporate that beauty into an EOTD! <3

  • I can’t believe you didn’t have yellow! Love seeing all those beautiful colors swatched. It’s calming haha. Oh, the life of a beauty addict!

  • I have to check out that MUFE aqua cream #20, I don’t know how I would wear it yet but that colour looks uber vibrant, I don’t have such intense blue yet, great swatches <3

  • Happy sigh seeing all these colorful bits of makeup together…I think Dusk Blue and Monaco Blue are my favorites on that color chart up there, STILL haven’t gotten over my blue kick. That Rimmel liner is such a unique color for the drugstore, I feel like it’s the affordable (and blue) version of NARS Barrow Street. I may need (cough, ‘need’) it 🙂
