another Lorac FOTD

This one's from the previous weekend actually...I got a backlog of pictures to edit!

pretty much the same as before :

Just used all the colours from the Lorac Showstopper palette, except the grey shade. Used ELF Luminance bronzer to highlight instead since its more subtle than using that light but super shimmery shade in the palette. Lashes were coated with Blinc Kiss Me mascara.

Foundation was Buff'd original foundation in Sand, topped with Silk Naturals' Perfecting powder. Used the Couture blush from the palette, but skipped my usual contouring wiht MAC Emote. Lips were MAC Lip Erase, and a combination of MAC Mattene Poise and 40s Pink lipstick.

Don't mind that pimple...:S

Speaking of Lorac, I've always wanted the Snake Charmer palette since May did a post on it ages ago, but it was already sold out of stores. So I was surprised to find out from Jiejie that Sephora has it for sale again, though online only. But I'll never do an online Sephora order because its too much hassle for me with the customs, duties and courier delivery/pickup. Good thing its not in stores or I'd be really tempted to get it.

LOL. :) then again, i'm a full coverage whore. LOL. i love how you play final fantasy music on your page... i love final fantasy piano music. my bf got me into it, my favorite is probably tifa's (sp?) theme. my boyfriend can actually play it on the piano so i always ask him to play it when a piano is around.

That color looks so elegant on you, it's amazing!!! You did a great job blending it too~ I've never tried LORAC but you've definitely got me interested!

Aradani said...

very soft and pretty! I always want to get all the lorac palettes but I'm waiting for the perfect one because all of them aren't too different from one another, or at least I think so.
I'm the opposite. Because it's only online, it's more tempting. There's no sephora store anywhere near me. lol

I'm always amazed at how awake and bright eyed you look without having to wear eyeliner! If I didn't wear eyeliner my eyes would disappear :( I love the grey contacts on you!

Your eyes look gorgeous! Are you wearing contacts by any chance?

Oh bummer... Croc palette seems to be permanent and a bit more warmer, so no worries if you don't get snake charmer palette. Actually I like Croc more.

I love neutral looks. Very soft and versatile. I love my poise mattene, I rarely use it in fear of it running out. Wish I'd gotten 40s pink.

Do you use anything for your eyebrows? It looks like it's your natural brows. I think mine is like that too, and wonder if I really need something other than a sculpting gel/wax.

Great neutral look! :) I haven't heard one bad thing about the Lorac palettes, and I can see why.
