My latest from BFTE, likely to be my last BFTE haul for a bit but I had to get these colors!
|L to R: Butt Naked(sample), Sweet n' Spicy(COTW), Midnight Kisses.|
Butt Naked and Midnight Kisses are both from the Hot and Bothered Valentine's Day set, and were just recently added to the site for individual purchase. I'm so excited to finally have them! I only got a sample of Butt Naked, but I can already tell it's the perfect creamy highlighter. I have a feeling I'll use it up quickly. Midnight Kisses was the prize I chose for being BFTE 365 look #65, yay!
I got free sample baggies of Crystal and Silver, two colors I've been wanting to try. :)
I also thought it was finally time to try out the infamous Mix & Fix. More on this later when I've tested it out better. ;)
On to swatches! (All swatches swatched on bare skin, prepped with a little Pond's cream. Almost all pics taken in natural light.)

|Here you can sort of see the tiny sparkles in Midnight Kisses, and that Sweet n' Spicy is much frostier. Really love both of these colors!!|
|Natural light (I think..)|
|Crystal is supposed to be a silvery white with multicolored sparkles, but I have to say I couldn't really notice any multicolored sparkles. I didn't look too hard though, maybe I'll try it with the Mix & Fix and see if it brings them out. Silver is just that, a sparkly silver color. Both of these colors are very sparkly, enough that I probably won't use them dry too often because they're a little messy. These would probably be awesome foiled. (Btw, Crystal is the COTW this week, so if you like the pics and want to try it, head on over to BFTE's site to score a full-size jar for only $2!)|
|Direct sunlight, pretty sparkles!|
All in all, I love this haul! My favorites are Butt Naked, Sweet n' Spicy, and Midnight Kisses, they're all simply gorgeous! I did a look using all 3 colors, so I'll be posting about that separately soon since this post is already pretty long.
I also used the Mix & Fix, so I'll talk about that a little, but I really need more practice with it lol. All I can say is, YOU ONLY NEED ONE DROP! I learned the hard way, hehe. ;)
|Cleo loves it too ;3|
I'll leave you with Cleo, my curious paper-loving kitty! I was compiling all my old BFTE envelopes to throw away, and she came over and sat on them. She loves sitting on paper, weirdo. ;P
Have a good week everyone!
