Yes, I admit it. I love make-up. It’s like a freaking addiction. But it’s also like a hobby! So I guess it’s an addictive hobby 😀
I went back to Target (twice!) and hauled some more Flirt! items. The first time I went back, they still had the 50% off items as well as BOGOF. However, the second time I went back, it was just BOGOF 😦 which meant the prices were their original price. Sucky but still better than nothing.
What I ended up getting:
– Heartthrob blush
– blush brush
– Golden Lady eyeshadow
– Bronze Splash eyeshadow
– Chocoholic eyeshadow
– Silver Fog eyeshadow
– Peach Champagne eyeshadow
– Ice Pixie eyeliner
– Tipoff eyeliner
No, I didn’t go overboard at all 😛
I haven’t had a play with them all but ..
I have to say I really love the Ice Pixie eyeliner. It’s this beautiful deep shimmery green – just beautiful.
Also like the other eyeliner I purchased – Tipoff. It’s a nice matte charcoal grey.
The blush brush is ridiculously soft! Feels like cotton balls ♥
So it’s common knowledge that Flirt! (along with other brands) is owned by Estee Lauder. The very same company that owns MAC so it’s no wonder that there are some very similar colours between the two brands (as well as dupes of some MAC in other brands!)
These dupes can be easily found just by using Google but here’s a small list I’ve compiled. I don’t take credit for any these. I just combined the many search results into a smaller list. Easy to find 🙂
Other brands = Flirt!
NARS Albatross highlighting powder= Blondie
MAC Trax eyeshadow = Glamourazzi
Stila Kitten eyeshadow = Peach Champagne
NARS Luster blush = Sweet Desire
NARS Orgasm blush = Heartthrob
MAC Amber Lights eyeshadow = Bronze Splash
MAC Tempting eyeshadow = Golden Lady
MAC Antiqued eyeshadow = Chocoholic
MAC Expensive Pink eyeshadow = Feeling Light
MAC Vex eyeshadow = Lime Light
MAC Electra eyeshadow = Silver Fog
MAC Kid eyeshadow = Vanilla Truffle
MAC Paradisco eyeshadow = Feeling Hot
MAC Embark eyeshadow = Coconutty
Wow okay. I didn’t realise the list was that much. I can’t vouch for how similar these really are…maybe except for the NARS Orgasm – Flirt! Heartthrob one. I’ll post swatches in my next post.
And the eyeshadows I purchased 😀 As you can see, I love neutrals.
Peach Champagne: Another soon-to-be favourite of mine for highlighting. It’s different to Gold Envy in that Gold Envy has a golden sheen to it and Peach Champagne is a more pinkish-peach sheen. Again, I can see this working as a brow bone highlighter as well as a wash over the lids. Versatility at its best 🙂
So I did a lil EOTD with these shadows. I must say that I am utterly impressed by the pigmentation and lasting power of these eyeshadows.
Urban Decay Primer Potion – base
Flirt! Gold Envy eyeshadow – all over wash up to brow bone
Flirt! Golden Lady eyeshadow – lid
Flirt! Bronze Splash eyeshadow – outer corners
