Lately I've been making an effort to take a picture of my makeup every day... Now I have a ton of eyeball pictures to post! I think with all this practice I'm starting to get the hang of taking makeup pictures.
Thought I'd post today's since I'm using the DuWop Payoff I just got and the memory is still fresh in my mind.
Took a million pictures of this one to try to show the neat red sparkle in Bare Escentuals Cherry Coco Truffle!

So... this Payoff stuff. I used it yesterday with liner and today with my shadow. I like it but I'm not seeing much of a difference between it and MAC Water Based Mixing Medium. Well, I do see one big difference- the price! DuWop Payoff is $17 for .25 oz and MAC is $18 for 1.7 oz. I haven't compared ingredients yet as my MAC bottle seems to be lacking an ingredients label... but for that price maybe they should change the name to DuWop Ripoff... Kidding, kidding. It's not bad at all, just overpriced- you get nearly 2 ounces of the MAC for only $1 more... A bit more economical, don't you think?
That Bare Escentuals shadow has a really pretty pink-red sparkle to it that I tried to capture. I find that the red sparkle doesn't show up unless I apply this wet, and I hate applying crease colors wet for lots of reasons... But luckily this shade is easier to blend after applying wet than most I've tried.
I think it even brings out the color of my eyes a little... Sometimes I wonder, "what color?" as my eyes seem mostly black to me.... But this seems to compliment dark eyes and even pull out a few warm reddish golden tones that I don't usually see. Yay!
Also tried out the sample of Stila One Step Makeup that came in my Sephora order yesterday... I think I like it! It's smooth and not very heavy and has a nice silicone texture like primer. I'll have to see if it makes me break out. I haven't been wearing foundation lately. This shade might be too dark for me though.
One more note- Shiseido eyelash curler is amazing. I'm never going back to Shu. I'll post about that later.
I'll have to remember to keep posting these, I did a really pretty taupe look on Sunday that I liked and I want to show you!
