Anyways here are some pictures of the things I got, and one that I returned and exchange for other things!

(left: florida, right: optimistic orange)
- Quick Sizzle Lipstick
Quick Sizzle (MATTE):
Here I compared the Quick Sizzle Lipstick (which is a Matte Finish) to two other similar things from MAC I have.
(left: Impassioned Lipstick, warmer and more orange. Center: Quick Sizzle Lipstick, right: Magenta Lip Liner, more purple and cooler tone.)
- Shop & Drop Palette
SHOP & DROP:
Swatches: from L to Right: Sugar Snack (M), Hypnotizing (F), Power Boosted (VXP), Shop & Drop (S)
Here I compared Hypnotizing to Satin Taupe which look fairly similar in the pan but on the skin you can see that Satin Taupe is warmer and has more brown in it.
- Crushed Metal Pigments (the only thing I got from the Vera Collection, but I returned)
Pink Patch Metal Pigments:
So I returned the Crushed Metal Pigments but of course I managed to do a little photoshoot of me (and my ferret) sporting all 4 pigments on my eyes, cheeks and lips (mixed with vaseline)
I exchanged the pigments for another palette, the Color Added Palette (shown above)
Here is another photoshoot of one look I created using the palette, I'll have an upcoming tutorial showing you how to recreate this and another look.!
Color Added Palette:
From Left to Right: Laundry Daze (S), Colour Added (VXP), Pre-Packaged (VXP) Self-Serve (S)
