Also a closeup of what Poise lipstick looks like:

I passed on Poise twice before finally getting it. At first I thought it was going to be too bright pink but surprisingly it looks ok imo.

Its weird how this time everything was sorta middle to high end makeup except for the eyeshadow. Usually I use inexpensive stuff for the face and use MAC for the eyeshadows, but this time almost all the shadows were from Maybelline. I do like Maybelline eyeshadows actually, they don't crease at all and the colour payoff has gotten better with their new formula. The older eyeshadows hardly had colour but they really improved it now. Also its sorta interesting how they label what shadow should be used for what area in the reformulated quads.

alienman: thanks! yeah maybelline has really improved their formulas.

petitebelle: aww that sucks :( is there another counter you could go to? or you could try out Composure, I find that the online swatch looks almost simlar to Flattering. Or give Poise a shot :)
