Hope Quest swatch 
3rd-Jan-2011 04:18 pm
This will probably be my 2nd last reveal of Hope Quest mineral eyeshadows I ordered ages ago... unless I pick up one of the last grab bags. Hehehehe...

Without any primer, my skin barely holds any pigment. 'Willing and able' and 'I am enough' might be my summer staples, given my current obsession with earthy gold tones.

I accidentally spilt a third of 'Angels are calling', while trying to photograph the jar and while I'm kicking myself about it, there's still heaps left. Who knew that one of these 5 gm jars could hold so much pigment?

Since you like gold tones lately you need to try Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin, if you haven't already (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P229510&categoryId=B70). I got it to use as just an eyeshadow since it lasts all day (I have fallen asleep with it and it hasn't budged at all the next day) so I don't have to worry about it at work, and since it's a cream it doesn't get on my cheeks or eyelashes but it doesn't require a separate brush either.

ANYWAYS the stuff is magic seriously. It's shimmery but not overpowering. It's seriously my favorite eyeshadow now, I think next time I am going to order the XL size online when I run out. It's just about the only eyeshadow I use if you don't count the Anna Sui stuff I keep in my purse for "emergencies".

Oooooooo!!! I've heard a lot about the Urban Decay primers and thought they only came in the clear formulation. Unfortunately the only way we (Australians) can buy Urban Decay products is via eBay or some online retailers. They haven't hit our shores yet. :(

I only just found out about the other colors of the primer myself when I was shopping with a friend and she bought the sampler pack for a gift for somebody else (I ended up buying her a bottle of Sin too, for Christmas). I used the plain one a long time ago, but I got lazy and stopped because it was just one more step. But now it's just one step since I use it alone xD.

If you pay me in advance I can pick up one or 2 (or more) for you and send it to you, I want to share the love, this stuff is really amazing lol.

That would be awesome! Could you let me know how much a bottle with shipping to Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) would cost? I might have to wait till pay week (next week) to get some funds due to the need for prescription sunglasses (damn Australian summer).

Regular bottle is $18USD and the XL is $23USD (online only for XL so you'd either have to pay shipping to my house or if you get $50 of stuff it's free shipping). First class (slow) is $5, Priority is $14.

And yeah, I heard they are expensive from my mom when she wanted a pair, yikes!
