Baby Powder as a setting powder?

So I ran out of my MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder & Blot Powder. Therefore, I had nothing to set my foundation with. I had my Studio Fix Powder Plus..but that makes me break out a lil bit. Anyways, I looked up on Specktra to see what others use as a setting powder...but that was translucent and didn't cost so much. By the way I tried the MAC Prep + Prime Translucent Powder last week & I loveee it. I read that many used Baby Powder as a setting powder.

I used Studio Fix Fluid & my #129 brush to apply the baby powder. Very light application. I just used a soft kabuki brush to brush off the loose powder.

I did NOT get oily in my t-zone at all. I did not touch up at all.

Woke up the next day, no zit or irritations to the skin whatsoever. The only cons about it, is the scent. This is actually my son's baby powder LOL. If anything next time, I will buy the unscented one. I could care less about the packaging. I just pour some in my empty Bare Escentuals container.

Another product that I wished I knew about before!! I still love the MAC Select Sheer & Blot powders though. I would probably only use those for special outings/weekends.

Trying out MAC l/s in Lady Danger. It looks a lil smudge but it's my webcam being weird. My son like drooled over the webcam and I guess it got wet inside haha. So my pics are a lil blurry from that. Also my first time shading in my eyebrows with a pencil instead of eyeshadow. The eyebrow pencil is the dark brown by NYC.

Forgot to mention, that is the "Hollywood" lashes that Kim & Khloe Kardashian wears. My sister found out about through Khloe's blog. Not sure what the link is but I can find out and link you guys.

Depotted some eyeshadows today.

^^hehe =).

I wished I would have known about just using the MAC Pro palettes before I bought POT form eyeshadows. Would've saved me a lot of $.

I didn't do it myself...my wonderful bf did =). We used the straightener method. The glue was kind of icky though. I figured out an easy fast way to get the glue off. Just pour a lil of alcohol onto a washcloth towel and move the eyeshadow pan around in circular motion until the glue comes off. It took forever using a q-tip LOL. My hand got tired and lazy...just ended up pouring some alcohol onto the towel and tadaa it worked.

I cannot wait for the new Spring & Summer collections to launch =)

I think being a big MAC lover is a bit stressing...having to keep up with the collection and worrying about it being sold out or not.

Thanks to Temptalia.com for the preview of the launches. It's a good way of having an idea of what you may want to purchase for that collection. Gives you heads up on saving $. That way I wouldn't have to worry about not being able to buy anything if I'm broke. I should already have $ saved by the time it launches haha.

Looking forward to the Give Me Liberty Collection next Thursday =).
