Mac Blushcreme Pearl in Sweet William

I am starting to think that I need a more neutral background for taking my pictures on.  While I do enjoy the red for pictures of bottles and other things where the color is not super important, my pink blushes and other products seem much duller compared to the bright red fabric.  While from the picture in pan it would appear that this is a very dull color, it is in reality much closer to the color in the swatch (see bellow).

I would give this product a 8/10

January 2011 Beauty Look

Every month I preselect a makeup look so on days when I am in a rush I have a go to look.  This month I finally decided to break out the pin-up inspired look.  While I have been a long time admirer of this style I have up until recently not been courageous enough to wear it out in public.
