Seems like I just decided to get everything else I had my eye on for a while and then threw in some randoms.

#LipSwatchWeek always needs new content right?

This was on sale and I couldn't refuse if only because I've never tried the lip liners from Urban Decay.

I absolutely don't need any more mascara...but I tried a sample of this and it might just be the best that ever was.

After my frustration with 'Dim Light' I wondered if I just got the wrong shade. I actually plan to get a bronzer and a blush and write an overview on these Ambient powders.

Sharalee encouraged me to dust off my Clarisonic Mia 2 so I got some new brush heads. I chose the Acne ones since I like those and the Sensitive type the best. The 15% saved me $43.65USD before tax and I got $10.59USD cash back from using Ebates1.

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
