HOT Pink!!

I took the pics long after I did the look so the blue under is a little faded.... sorry! But- I was very excited about this. I wore this out- in day light.... yup. I don't have a night life- plus I'm prego so that's out of the question. I wear my bright looks during the day, unless they are too extreme for Walmart. lol!

I used the Manly 120 palette for this look. The hot pink is my favorite color on the whole palette and probably the only reason I really wanted it. It has a very sheer, chalky consistency though. So, I load up on primers first. I used the ELF primer and then the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk for better adhesion. It looks wonders- because the color turns out being brighter. I used a purple over and a tiny bit of black in my crease for some added definition to this neon looking craze. The blue- well, that is inspired by Abrilliantbrunette. She always loves using blue under her eyes for bright looks and it works!

The pink and purple look-well, they are my favorite colors for eye shadows, unfortunately I tend to stick to them too often. Plus- there's a ton of cool makeup artists out there using them for Valentine's looks. I would not wear this for Valentines. I feel that I usually go for soft looks on that day. Maybe this year will be different. Who knows? Hope you liked the look- catch ya laterz!

L"oreal HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Eggplant

I'm sadly watching Life As We Know It....again. I love these kind of movies, that make me get all emotional even though I think they are really not all that good lol. Anyways- on with the review!! I bought this the other day because I wanted to try it out after watching a youtube review on it. (Don't remember which one...)

It was a comparison on the Maybelline  gel liners and this. According to the review, this liner had much more pigmentation and also lasted a lot longer than the other one without creasing. I had been wanting to put my finger on a new gel or creme liner (just because) even though I don't need it... lol.

This bad boy comes with a brush- don't like it. It's too thick for me. I use the ELF Small Precision brush to apply this and it works wonders. The liner comes in a glass pot- I like it very much. The pigmentation is seriously great. This does not compare to the black gel liner that I have though. It's much creamier- much easier to apply. You just have to be a little more careful because since it's creamier, you could end up with tiny chunks on your lid.

It lasted all day- didn't budge. Now I did try it on my water line- I do not recommend this if that's what you need it for. In my water line it didn't last very long for some reason. See, because it's a cream- it won't budge after it's dried on your skin. In your water line- it doesn't get a chance to dry. That was a bit disappointing- but I still love it.

The post before this has me wearing it- so check it out. Till next time peeps- I got a very colorful look coming up- will probably post within the next two days. =-)

Oddity and EggPlant

I just bought the L'Oreal HIP creme eyeliner in Eggplant and had to try it out. (The review is coming right after this.) I had a bright green shirt on and went for a one color look the other day. Using Glamour Doll Eyes in Oddity all over (the green shade) and Eggplant as my liner.

I pretty much loved it. Eggplant is very dark so it gave me the definition I wanted. I've never used Oddity alone- I always do 2, 3, or 4 color looks. So this was nice. I might be doing more of these. So much easier too!

Either way, I am reviewing this creme eyeliner next- it's worth talking about it. =-) Hope you liked this look.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters

I own two of these amazing Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters since last weekend. They are amazing! I'm sure you guys have heard plenty of reviews on these- and I am only agreeing with most of them. These are very cool. I love the colors I got and they are very conditioning just like a lip balm, but I feel they are more lipstick-y than lip balm-y because of the colors.

My favorite so far is the one above- Peach Parfait. It has shimmer that is not overpowering and has the perfect peach/salmon kind of color that looks awesome with my skin color. Lasting power, I'd say about 2-3 hours unless you eat or drink something. I have to reapply after anything my lips touch, but it's always a pleasure because they feel so buttery!

Sweet Tart I got because I saw it on XSparkage's blog and it looked beautiful on her. I thought I could make it work- and I did, but it's a pretty bright pink so I apply it and blotch it off once to tone down the brightness. I'm somewhat afraid of really bright lip colors when going out....

All in all, I decided to swatch them for you! Not the best swatches.... but it gives you an idea of what they look like. I'll definitely include in one of my next blog posts. Swatch on top is Peach Parfait, the bottom swatch is Sweet Tart and I swiped them twice. Till next time! =-)

An Old Bright Look

This is a look I had completely forgotten about. I had not posted it up because I am not crazy about the lashes at all...I was just playing with makeup and was trying out my LASplash Splash Proof Sealer. It makes a huge difference- these colors do not look like that without it.

Problem was, since I was only playing makeup- I used an old mascara that was drying up. Can you tell?? LOL! Anyways- it was very bright. I like it except I can see how I can make it much better so that it could be wearable for me. The blue was Dirty Jeans by Glamour Doll Eyes. The purple was Glam Girl by Glamour Doll Eyes, and I used NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk in my waterline. I do not remember what the highlight was...but it was too frosty for this look. This was definitely very random- see ya till the next blog!

First Day Of School =-)

I wanted to wear something light/natural for my first day. I was somewhat in a hurry because I had a million things to do yesterday- but I had to do makeup! I also was very happy to find out that these colors looked perfect with the bronze liquid eyeliner. I loved it! 

I used all Mark. eyeshadows starting with i-Mark in Heavenly on my lid, South Beach in my crease, and Whisper as my highlight. In the pictures it is a bit hard seeing the difference between the lid and the crease color- but notice- the lid is greener, the crease is bluer. If that helps... my pics yesterday weren't the best as usual lol.

The Wet 'N Wild Mega Liner in Brown definitely made my day yesterday with this look. I was determined to not give up on it- and I'm glad I didn't. School was busy, tiring, and long. Just as most first days are for me- since I have to run all over the place buying books, parking permits, and so forth. Let's hope today is less...(fingers crossed). Have a great day!

Completely Neutral

I bought a new brown liquid liner- Wet 'N Wild Mega Liner in Brown and experimented with it after being so disappointed with it. It does last long- but it's not brown- it's bronze. It has a very metallic finish and I've been trying to make it work to where you can see it- because it's so light and bronzy.

I used the Avon Mocha Latte palette with the taupe color as my lid, the darker brown in the crease, and the bronze to blend the dark brown with the highlight. NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk in my water line and brown under my eye. (Yes I curled my lashes- lol they look so much bigger curled.)

I was very happy with the extremely neutral look but the next day I decided to change it up  bit. Below I used the same eyeshadows- in the same way. Except I used a frosty white on my lid to try to bring out the brown liquid eyeliner more. It seemed to have worked better.

Yesterday was cloudy outside- as you can tell in the last three pics. Another difference was that I used black eyeliner in my waterline instead of the white one. I am still not too sure which one I liked best.

The only thing I can assure you is that this "brown" liquid liner left me wanting a dark matte brown. I'm not saying I don't like it- just that I prefer more definition over color when it comes to my lash line. Whether the color is bright or dark.

Hope you liked the look. Let me know which one you think looks better. Or if I just need to get a darker line... lol! Thanks for stopping by!
