Swap Haul! MAC Soft & Gentle, Nars Super Orgasm and More!

Natalie Friday, September 18, 2009
Here are some goodies I received this week in swaps on Makeupalley and Specktra!



I got Super Orgasm! The girl I did the swap with was such a sweetheart!! This shade has been one on my wish list for quite some time.. I lovee it! It looks just like the regular Orgasm blush.. except it seems to be that its a little more intense and has chunky gold glitter in it. Does anyone own this blush? What are your thoughts?? I'm so happy I got my hands on some NARS blushes.. (this one and "angelika") I want so many other shades! :) 

I also received a pretty O.P.I Nail Polish.. perfect for pink french tips or a nude nail. It is called "Pink-ing of you"

I got the MAC Soft & Gentle MSF.. and was SO sad when it came crushed!!! :(!!!!! They sent it to me in a document mailer. What a disappointment! I really like the girl who I did this swap with though.. so I didn't make a big deal about it. It's okay. It's a pretty shade.. it doesn't give much color.. its better for a shimmery highlight.

This is another product I couldn't wait to get my hands on. Urban Decay's Deluxe Eye Shadow in "Freakshow". It is such a pretty deep purple. After I saw Whitz post on this color (click here to see it) I HAD to have it. I'm SO happy I was able to swap something I don't use for this!

And more Urban Decay! Midnight Cowboy Rides Again & Sin.

I accidentally dug my nail into "Sin" when I was taking a picture :( These are two lovely every day shades. I like Sin for a highlight. One of my favs is Midnight Cowboy, so I was excited for Midnight Cowboy rides Again.

I was curious about B*tch Slap Cosmetics.. I really am not fond of the name.. I don't have that type of "out there" personality. I got the "Spite" Paint Wheel. It's pretty pigmented.. I'm not so fond of the texture though. It seems really cheap to me. Its very sparkly, very chalky/gritty.. not very soft.. I also didn't realize that MANY brands have the exact same wheels.. they just have different names. So its not technically exclusively sold by B*tch Slap.. you can get it from various places.. probably at a cheaper cost too. One thing that was weird to me was, after I did the swathes, my fingertips were stained yellow.




And I got lots of MAC pigment samples! I LOVE GRAPE pigment! It is everything I'm hoping MUFE #92 is. And, Cornflower is absolutely gorgeous.. I want the full jar!



That's all for now! <3

  1. I love NARS blushes! I have Super Orgasm too and I find you need to tap your brush alot so you don't get glitter all over the place. It's very pretty. You should check out NARS Sin blush. It's my fave.

  5. You got great items in your swap! That's too bad about your soft and gentle. I'm obsessed with MSFs, but I don't have that many myself. I also hear that Bitch slap cosmetics can stain your brushes (especially if you have the mac ones with the white goat hair). Good thing you used q-tips. I like the trees in the mirror of your super orgasm! Its such a great pic. I just have orgasm blush, but that looks INSANE! Must try it out :)

  8. Hi! I recently joined makeup alley and kept stumbling across your reviews on there. Then when I was looking up some MAC reviews on google, one of the pictures took me here to your blog and I recognized you from MUA! I love your blog and your reviews are so helpful!! It has definitely inspired me to shift my blog into more of a beauty blog. :) Thanks for all your great posts, I will be sure to keep coming back! :)
    Oh, P.S. I too had been looking around for an amazing purple shadow. Two I've found that I've loved are Mac mineralize Odd Couple (SO gorg!!) and for a drugstore brand, I like a cream shadow by Jesse's Girl called Seduction. Not as good as Odd Couple but a good cheap one. :) LOVE purples lately!!
