FOTD: Wisteria Lane

8 Jul

Hey Glams! Please pardon my earbuds, I was undoubtedly listening to my Musiq Soulchild Pandora station when I took these pics & couldn’t bear to part w/ the tune of the moment. I’m not a huge shimmer enthusiast, but I wanted to show you guys some pics of a look I created using the WNW Petal Pusher palette. To minimize confusion, I will refer to the colors in this palette as numbers. The left column top to bottom (1-4) & the right column top to bottom (5-8).

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple

SHADOW: I applied e/s #2 (a pinkish lavender w/ gold shimmer) to my entire lower eyelid, stopping shy of my crease. Then I applied e/s #4 (a blue-toned violet w/ silver sparkles) to my crease & blended it into e/s #3 (a deeper frosty purple) at my outer v. Finally, I lightly dusted e/s #5 (frosty light pink) on my brow bone area.

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to fill in my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my lashes. I defined my upper lashline using Black Radiance Continuous Creme Eyeliner in Rustic Brown. I applied white eyeliner to the inner part of my waterline prior to applying Atlantis (a shimmery chartreuse green e/s) by TheBodyNeeds.

LIPS: Lancome Le Rouge Absolu lipstick in Pink Diamond + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

FACE & CHEEKS: Nada

And who doesn’t love a good love song? Enjoy…

FOTD: Too cool for school

1 Jul

As the title indicates, this FOTD is a mashup of cool colors. Remember my review of the Ruby Kisses HD gel eyeliner? Well, I went back to my local BSS & got the dark purple one. It’s called violet shimmer & I love it! I have no plans to do a formal review of this one, so just know that in my humble opinion, it’s the bee’s knees. If you’re looking for a muted purple eyeliner, I highly recommend it. ENJOY!

PRIMER: Mary Kay Eye Primer

BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy

SHADOW: I applied a matte white e/s to the inner half of my lower eyelid. I blended that into cerulean blue (from the Black Radiance Retro Chic palette) on the outer v & matte navy blue (from the WNW Pride palette) in the crease. I used matte peach (from the WNW Lust palette) to highlight my browbone area.

OTHER DETAILS… I used matte blackened purple e/s from the WNW Lust palette to fill in my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my lashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline using Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in Violet Shimmer. I traced a thin line below my waterline using Wet N Wild eyeliner pencil in Cool Green.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

LIPS: Lancome Le Rouge Absolu lipstick in Pink Diamond + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

FOTD: Sneaky Peach

31 May

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx matte e/s primer

BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy (tangerine orange cream shadow)

SHADOW: I applied matte peach (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette) e/s to the tearduct area & inner half of my lower lid. Then I blended the peach into light tangerine (from the Coastal Scents Hot Pots palette). To create the cut crease, I used a pencil brush to apply matte dark brown (from the WNW Vanity palette) along my crease. Then I used my Sonia Kashuk large blending brush to fade the dark brown upward into my brow area. I used matte camel (also from the WNW Vanity palette) to highlight my brow bone.

  

OTHER DETAILS… I used matte blackened purple e/s from the WNW Lust palette to fill in my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my lashes. I defined my upper & lower lashline using Wet N Wild cream liner in black.

LIPS: WNW glassy gloss lip gel in “Mow the Glass”

Dec 2011 & Jan 2012 Beauty Acquisitions

25 Jan

Drumroll please… For the sake of your our convenience I have combined December 2011  & January 2012 product hauls into 1 long video. Grab a snack & enjoy the show 😉 NOTE: this video also includes swatches of my new Coastal Scents HOT POTS!!!

Something new: Maybelline Color Tattoo

11 Jan

You see what had happened was… I went to Wal-mart to buy some cereal, milk, juice & bread, yet somehow I landed in the cosmetics department. I think my feet walked over there on auto-pilot, or something like that. I literally gasped when I stumbled upon this display & startled the lady standing next to me, LOL!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow

• Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting color saturation
• Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant
• Ophthalmologist-tested.  Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

I bought three of the ten available shades; Fierce & Tangy 10 (shimmery tangerine orange), Pomegranate Punk 30 (pinkish burgundy w/ gold glitter) & Painted Purple 20 (shimmery purple).

These are the preliminary swatches…

My first impression is that the colors are very pigmented, yet blend-able & the formula is creamy, yet non-greasy. I haven’t used them yet, so I can’t testify about their longevity. I can’t wait to try em! Stay tuned for my review.
