FOTD @ MakeUp ForEver & Haul

Hello AGAIN!

I decided to get makeup done again at the MakeUp ForEver counter at Sears Toronto Eaton Centresince I was pretty pissed off from my last makeup experience and I had plans on getting a sheer/medium foundation for the summer too. Since I was going to spend $50+ anyways....so why not take advantage and get makeup done? Yes, I love getting pampered and I also had plans on going out too.

So this Sears - MUFE counter Eatons location is actually closing permanently in June/July and this was the ONLY place in Toronto that carried eyeshadow pan refills. The other place in Canada is in Montreal at the MUFE Pro Boutique store. I guess I'll have to order pans from there oneday. (I'm not going to the New York MUFE location anytime soon either...lol) You can still buy MUFE eyeshadow palettes from some MUFE counters. I bought the 10 eyeshadow- palette today from The Bay counter at Eatons for $22. (The Bay is like Macys) I think that's the only counter that has them right now.

Anyways...back to my FOTD make-up...I wanted a bright gold-hot pinkish look with some purple and my MA came up with this. I think he did a great job! I love it and it's very colourful and it was new to me since I'm not really used to wearing such bold colours. The pics do not show up as vibrant and bold but it was VERY BOLD in person...trust me! lol



I can't remember everything the MA used for the face but for the eyes this is what I know...

#75 (Hot Pink)
#10 (Yellow Gold)
#92 (Purple)
MUFE Gel Eyeliner in Black
A Champagne shimmery powder for the inner corners and highlight

So I came back home and applied...
-Mac #7 Lashes
-Mac Hipness Blush
-Mac Other Worldly Blush
-Mac Flashmode Lustreglass

Here's what I got from MUFE Sears:
The eyeshadow colours were VERY LIMITED...most of the good ones were SOLD OUT and they were not getting anymore new shipments either. I know there are a couple of the famous #92 eyeshadow pans left. These are $13.50 Cdn ....so hurry before it's all gone! If you go to The Bay...each full container eyeshadow is $18.50 Cdn.

I got #49, #160 and #34 Face and Body Foundation. This feel very cool against my skin and I actually love the smell of this. It goes on sheer and you can build it up as well. It's waterproof too. =) I think I got it for $41.50Cdn. They didn't have any palettes left and were all sold out. Then I went to The Bay @ Eatons MUFE counter.

Here's what I got from The Bay - Eatons - MUFE :
Since, they never had this at Sears...I really wanted it bad so I got this #75 Eyeshadow container one and I know you can even use this as a blush too. It's SUPER pigmented as well so you just need a very tiny bit and then blend it in with your blush brush. This was $18.50Cdn. I think Sephora sells them for $1-2 more.

I got this 10 eyeshadow palette for $22Cdn. It's not the best palette either and it's not as great as the Mac palettes. It has this foam type texture inside and it's not the magnetic types either. The pans just fit in. There's a 6 palette too for $14-15Cdn. There are two other palettes that have mirrors in them and are more bulky in texture but they are pricey as well. The trio eyeshadow palette is $18 and the quad is $17. That's just how the prices are. =S

I had 3 MUFE eyeshadows from before. MUFE eyeshadows are SUPER pigmented and they actually last such a long time. I always had problems with many matte eyeshadows and they always ended up fading. This reminds me of Mac's Newly Minted eyeshadow. I do love the colour but I friggin HATE the texture!!! I returned it after 3 attempts! It kept fading and creasing like crazy even with an eye base/primer.

MUFE eyeshadows work so well...It's JUST SO MAGICAL! ;)

The makeup looks great!

And that's a good idea... I always want to make an appointment to get my makeup done for fun, but don't want to pay $50... I never think to do it when I already plan on spending $50 or more there anyway! I'll have to do that.

It looks great on you, but I must confess I wouldn't wear it, I don't like such bold and colorful looks too much on me. I feel a little bit like a parrot then, lol.

Otherworldy blush is one of my absolute favorites.

Hi babe, do you find number 92 eyeshadows stains your eyelids and your white hair brushes? I find that it does but I don't care! I used my loew cornell and I kinda got lazy and left it with out cleaning it. So a week pased (lol, i didn't use it for that week) I did my regular deep cleaning, and OMG I washer the purple off the bristle and the bristles were died HOT HOT HOT PINK! like freakin NEON! Haha I can't get it off...it looks like my brush got streaks or something...lol but its kinda pretty tee hee :)

i know it's a year later after you posting this entry, but i was searching for the prices of the MUFE refill eyeshadow pans but there is no sign of that online except for ur blog :)
anyway, u said that u bought the refill pan for 13.50 CAD, is this the reguler price or it's discounted because of the clearance on sears??
i contacted the MUFE.ca and they told me that the only place to buy the refill eyeshadows is in their MUFE store in montreal, buut i can order from them. they are charging 19 CAD for the refill pan?!!
