Taupe.... Taupe... Goose! Playing More with Fyrinnae

I am in love with Fyrinnae Koala. It's another color that @glowyjoeybunny turned me on to. It's like the kid sister to MAC Satin Taupe. I decided to put the two together for neutral, subtle eye.

You're getting two closeups of the eye here because it was hard to really show the difference between Koala being a rose-taupe and Koala being a neutral nude shadow.  Koala is on Fyrinnae's June 2008 Endangered List. If you like the shadow, you will want to pick it up - a portion of the proceeds go to endangered wildlife. Did you know when I first read that, I thought they were getting rid of the shadow? Turns out they aren't, and it's so much better! Buying it is helpful!


  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Fyrinnae Pixy Epoxy - used less than before, just in case this was what caused my eyes to get puffy.
  • Fyrinnae Koala - All over lid
  • MAC Satin Taupe - crease in corner.
  • MAC Next to Nothing - brow highlight
  • MAC Pearlglide in Blackline
  • MAC Plushlash Mascara in Plushblack


  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
  • MAC Strada Blush, MAC Stray Rose Blush

  • MAC Cremestick Liner in Pink Treat
  • MAC Lipstick in Angeldish

Now the Goose part isn't special at all... I just wanted to include this picture to make a cute title for my post.

I saw these fellas hanging out on the overpass (tunnel) that I have to walk under in order to get into work. Now this isn't important in anyway except I was thinking the entire time the last thing I wanted to do was get hit by a "Goose Bomb". I was hit by a "Pigeon Bomb" in Paris, France once and let me tell you - it wasn't pretty! These geese were about the same size as those Parisian Pigeons so I imagine the damage would be similar.
