I Can't Think Of A Name - FOTD, Haul & Ramblings

I got MAC's Melon pigment a while ago, and I was having trouble finding colours to pair it with, so I came up with this look. It's similar to something I've done before - I know - but I can't find a colour that's similar to Melon pigment but matte, so that I can pair it in the crease. Any suggestions?

MAC Bare Study paintpot
MAC Melon pigment (all over the lid)
MAC Nocturnelle e/s (outer corner/crease)
MUFE # 92 e/s (outer corner/crease)
Annabelle Vanilla Chilla e/s (to highlight)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous mascara
Annabelle Ebony e/s (matte black for brows)

The other day after work I headed over to Wal-Mart to do some retail therapy, and I picked up the following:

1) Sally Hansen Maximum Strength Nail Polish Remover
2) NYC Extreme Glider Lip Gloss in Chelsea Rose - This gloss' packaging is long and slim, which would make it suitable to slip in your back pocket for on-the-go use. It has a candy/watermelon smell, and it's pretty glossly without being sticky. The only downside is that it doesn't show up very well on my pigmented lips.
3) NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Big Apple Blush - I picked this up after hearing a lot of raving reviews and decided to try it out, especially with the sweaty summer months coming on us, powder blush doesn't seem to last very long on me. This has a bit of a greasy formula, which I don't think would be very suitable for my oily skin, but we'll see how it works out.
4) EcoTools Retractable Kabuki - I needed a brush for my makeup bag and decided to pick this up since I love all the EcoTool brushes that I already own. It's really soft and pretty dense, I would definitely recommend this!
5) Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Commander in Chic - I've head a lot about this colour, and since I didn't have anything similar in my collection, I decided to pick it up. More on this later.

I've been pretty busy lately, but I have a lot of ideas on posts that I'm going to come out with. So thanks for sticking with me. :)

I agree with these great lookin girls!

The colours are fantastic and your brows are the most impressive thing I've seen all week.

Wish mine would grow/thicken out.

Try putting a cranberry red colour in the crease. I usually use one from my 88 palette!
