My first Dior nail polish!

This is my first time bloging from my iPhone, can’t wait to see if it looks ok! I’m at my parents house right now, and my mom just gave me this nail polish. She had gotten it for herself, but didn’t like the colour on her, so she gave it to me. I like the colour alot, and I don’t have anything like it in my collection. It’s the Dior Vernis in shade 219 Beige Safari. The color is a pinky beige, nude color, and very work apropriate. It’s nice to apply, and has a wide brush, much like the new Essie brushes, but even better! It`s the best brush I`ve ever used, actually. Me like! – M-

My first MAC eyeshadow!

I can`t believe I´ve never owned a MAC eyeshadow before, but then again, I`ve never been as much into makeup as I am now. I wanted to get just a pan, but it turns out they only have the boxed ones at the MAC department where I live. (I`ve ordered a NICE looking empty palette online, and will blog it when it arrives…It`s not a MAC palette.) I researched long and hard what would be a good choice for my first MAC eyeshadow, and landed on Satin Taupe.
I love it, and think I will get much use out of it. It reminds me a lot of Urban Decays Hustle from the Naked palette. 
Now that I see them together, I kind of struggle to justify owning both, but oh, well. What `ya gonna do… UD`s Hustle on the left, Satin Taupe on the right. As you can see, Satin Taupe is a tad less shiny, and has a bit less gold to it. It is a Frost finish. I think S.T. is a bit better for work and daytime wear for me. Cant wait to put it in my palette when it arrives! (I am actually thinking about de-potting the Naked palette as well, `cause I think I would actually use the wonderful colors more that way. Is this crazy and just plain stupid? I can`t decide…)
