Makeup of the Day – Everything amazing gets discontinued 

So, today I felt a little opalescent.  I got out my favorite moonstone jewelry and I used my MAC Vellum eyeshadow, which I’ve been hanging onto forever, because it’s been discontinued a long time.  It’s a gorgeous frosty white multichrome that flashes blue-purple-pink in the light when you move.  I’m wearing it today as a brow bone highlight.


It’s hard to see the reflections of color here, but if you move in the light…


Last night I was bummed out to read that I missed a re promote of this color that was limited edition – I didn’t even hear about it!  So, I started looking for dupes.  Apparently, Milani made a shadow that was similar called Moonlight – discontinued, nowhere to be found.  NYX made a single in the old square packaging called Opal that’s a pretty close dupe for Vellum – oh hey, they still have these on Amazon!  I grabbed one with my Prime membership, because yeah…this will also go the way of the dodo.  Makeup companies…WHY YOU DO DIS?!?  Stop taking away my preciouses.

The other product of amazing I have on today is Notoriously Morbid’s loose mineral highlighting powder on my cheekbones (or complete lack thereof) in “Osteomancy.”  Ok, seriously?  How cool is that name?  I got a sample of this that is so generous I won’t have to buy a container for a while, but when I run out?  I totally will!  This powder highlighter is a super fine shimmery white.  It’s so super ethereal and gorgeous.  And not subtle.  Heh!
