These last pics were taken with asphalt as a base under Chanels Regard Perle. The swatches do these no justice. I need to work on my pics. They were $6.69. Great deal compared to MAC's $17.50. They are available in more colors, like purple, orange, blue, white, and a few others.

maybelline 24 hour color tattoo shadow
I was up early this morning and took a fun little trip to Rite Aid. My plans were to pick up a couple of the new maybelline cream shadows that have been getting all the rave reviews. I also picked up one of Maybellines new bouncy blushes. The bouncy will be going back unopened. Read a bunch of really bad reviews just now and decided to just forget it. Anyway, on to the review for the shadow. I got audacious asphalt(shimmery charcoal grey), bad to the bronze(bronze), and bold gold(gold!). I was pleasantly surprised when I swatched the 1st one, asphalt. It really is gorgeous! I love the little bit of sparkle it has. It kind of reminds me of a way lighter version of Chanels illusion d ombre in mirifque. Well, the lower budget, lighter version. Chanels is black where as this is charcoal. I plan on only using these as a base under other shadows. Using this type of product as a base makes your shadow more intense and works as a primer. 2 in 1! They have been compared to MACs paint pots and I can see why. I have not tested out all 3, but I will later. Go check these out! They can be hard to find. I bought the last of the 3 I got.
