That title makes me hungry. *wipes up drool*
I got my ginormous package from Persephone Minerals in the mail a couple of days ago and I had ordered 2 winter collections: Sultry Sweet and Santa's Rockin' Reindeer. Those 2 are on clearance and I tried to link them for you but once again Blogger is being a dick so just google persephone etsy and click on the holiday 2011 link on the left.
errr.. or cut and copy this> http://www.etsy.com/listing/86953807/clearance-holiday-2011-le-sultry-sweet
Sultry Sweet is filled with pretty pinks a few browns/tans and really pretty light shades. The whole set is just fun to look at, like her Chibi Moon one (and if you don't have that one yet, you are totally DISOWNED DUDE :D )
I haven't swatched them, not sure I will since they are limited edition and probably gone soon.

The dude and I went to get dessert at some nice restaurant (just dessert cuz we're poor) and supper was pepperoni sticks from Walmart.
So this is the look I did to go eat some pumpkin bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream!!!

Wow, gotta love my lighting continuity...
MINI RANT TIME!
Lookie the pretty colours!
This is what you get when you add a photoshop filter
So pretty! But so not what they actually look like (well they actually look pretty but aren't as contrasty as this photo makes them out to be)
Lately it bugs the hell out of me seeing so many blogs/makeupbee photos now photoshopping every freakin picture, even swatch pics, to make something prettier.
Why bother listing what you used, when you've filtered the shit out of everything and the colour no longer looks like the original?
It's not like you go out side, go up to somebody "oh wait sir, let me throw on my magical photoshop glasses so you can see what I want you to see"
That's lying dude.
I could see tweaking it because your lighting was off but slapping a filter on it because it makes it more "vibrant" when it's totally NOT as vibrant as it actually is, just lies.
There are some blogs I do enjoy for the pretty with the photoshopping, but doing swatches with it too, nooooooo. Makes googling stuff harder when all you find and inaccurate shades. Like different montitors aren't wonky enough.
I don't care if it's used to get rid of acne/wrinkles/etc but when you start messing with the shadows themselves, it's misleading.
Over shopping shades probably hurt the company as well, especially indie when people get their order and are like "oh this is nothing like I saw online" and then blame the company, not the person with the PS skills.
Or maybe not, just a guess. I'm just bitchy today. The bread pudding wasn't that great. I want more pepperoni.
