Swatches of BFTE Greens

A friend of mine, and fellow BFTE lover, Jenn asked for a comparison swatch of two different colors. Since I had the two she asked about and a few other greens from BFTE, I decided to swatch them for everyone.

These are swatched over Urban Decay Primer Potion, on my Sweety's back. Good husbands, will let a makeup obsessed wife, do those kind of things. Ha ha :)

This is direct flash

This is with the flash bounced off the ceiling

I did a few at odd angles. Minerals are so vibrant & sparkly. One pic can't show how awesome they are, so I'm adding these.


A close up of each

Thanks for looking everyone!

EDIT/UPDATE : BFTE no longer carries Sage or Shamrock. The colors By Golly, Ying Yang, and Glimpse all seem to be very close dupes to me. If I order these colors in the future I will update this post again.

How awesome is that! Who could resist the bright, fun colors in that dress? Certainly not me. :)

To Be Reviewed ...

While browsing around in Ulta, I came across the new Maybelline Gel Eyeliner...

for meh blog...

I've read mixed reviews from various bloggers, so I went ahead a decided to try it for myself. I like to wear products several times before I make a judgment call.

After a trial run I'll update my thoughts.

Laters :)
