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.

Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical.

M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
