Pure Bloom

This is the second time I have worn this ... and the first time I did it was AWESOME and the pictures were AWESOME ... and then my camera ate said pictures and the awesomeness was lost to the world. So today I decided to try it again ... this time not so awesome, which I think might be because I am exhausted and have (in the words of Meryl Streep) "decided to become an incubus of viral plague!"

Oh well ... at least this one is crossed off the "to-do" list ... and I do love the lipstick!


basic face routine
Frisky blush; used Tapered Blush brush

MAC ShadeStick in Beige-ing lash to just above crease; blended slightly with fingers
Joy dry on browbone and around entire eye area; used Flathead shadow brush
Silk Rose dry in crease, lining lower lashline and on outer third of lid; used double ended Shaping Eye brush and Wet/Dry brush
Petal dry on middle third of lid; used Wet/Dry brush
Joy dry on inner third of lid, wrapped around inner corner and swept up into crease and onto browbone; used Wet/Dry brush

Questions? Comments? Please feel free to post .... and thanks for looking!


  1. This is a gorgeous look, Erin!(sick or not) The lipstick is perfect with it. I'm up to about 5 lip colors I must check out from MAC because of your posts. The enabling never ends.....

  2. I really love this kit and it looks great on you!

  3. That look is so pretty on you! I have this kit and tried it once and it was MEH on me, but that was before I started using MAC shadesticks so maybe I need to get it out and try it again. Love the lippie too!

  4. Will you PLEASE stop looking so beautiful???! I keep buying more and more BE in the vain hope that I'll approach your gorgeous looks and I'm not sticking to my resolve not to buy!

  5. Buy buy buy! These colours are great ... and this lipstick is so fun that I am so glad I have it. It is a LE so get it while it is hot if you can still find it!

    Thanks ladies!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
