Green eyes... again?? MAC "Boy Bait" Cremesheen Glass swatches

I know, I know, I've said it before and I'll say it again; I have a thing for army/olive green eyeshadow.  I don't know what it is but I just love it.  So today I really wanted to use my new MAC "Boy Bait" cremesheen glass over MAC's "Myth" (which is the most perfect nude glossy lip ever!) so I knew I'd need to do something dramatic on my eyes to balance it out.  So I went with green.

I used a layer of MAC "blacktrack" fluidline as a base and then I used my 88 palette for the rest (except the highlight and inner corner, which are Inglot 395 P).  Here are the colors I used from the palette:
I LOVE that olive green and tan color from this palette.  
Then I lined my eyes with the Blacktrack fluidline.  I used L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara.  I used the ELF blush/bronzer duo and NYX's "peach" blush on my cheeks.  And then I finished the look with MAC's "Myth" lipstick topped with "Boy Bait" cremesheen glass.

Speaking of Boy Bait, I figured I should do some swatches for you.  This was the color that I was looking at getting last time I went to a Cosmetics Company Outlet and when I picked it up, the lady said, "that'll wash you out" so I didn't get it.  Well I got it now haha!  

I know you can't really see it, that's partially because of how light of a color it is and partially because it's pretty sheer.

Here are my lips with nothing on them
Here they are with a layer of Boy Bait
And here are my glossed lips next to the container so you can see how they look compared to the tube
haha sorry for the weird face
I think the color is great.  I don't think it's overwhelmingly pigmented at all.  I don't think that, by itself, it washes me out because it's not pigmented enough to.  Obviously my lip color doesn't look just like the tube color but it's pigmented enough to make me happy.  And I just love the texture.  I paid $13 for it and I think it's well worth it.  I do think I'd have a hard time paying the $18.50 that they cost on the website though, knowing that I could get them way cheaper, but that's just me.  

Have you used MAC's Cremesheen glasses??  Do you like them as much as I do?  What are your favorite shades??? 

And now, just because I like taking pictures randomly and don't know what else to do with them, I'm going to show you a couple of pictures from today.  Well this first one my daughter took of me, but I think it's a super artistic looking picture, I love it!
And one of me and my daughter
And my daughter "being a cat" haha
