EOTD: Sugarpill Purples!

Hi hi hi hi hi!  

The other day I was very inspired to play with my purples by Sugarpill.  I really wish they would figure out a way to make Poison Plum vegan again so that when my two run out (yes, I bought a back-up old one that is vegan as it is now not available as vegan and hasn't been since 2012, I believe).  In this look I used Poison Plum in the crease, Hysteric on the lid, and Frostine for a tear duct highlight.

I am not sure what Blogger did as it uploaded my pictures, but it seems to have made the colour of Hysteric (the colour on the lid) more vibrant and contrast-y than it is in real life.  


The ever necessary "macro" shot!  This picture shows the colours a bit more true to lift.  

This one is also quite true to life (as is the one below).

  


Products used:
  • Mineral Fusion Eyeshadow Primer
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in White
  • Inglot Matte 372 in the crease
  • Sugarpill Poision Plum in the deep crease and blended up and out
  • Sugarpill Tako to highlight the browbone
  • Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy applied to lid and Sugarpill Hysteric patted on top
  • Sugarpill Bulletproof to darken the outer lid/outer "v" and applied very closely along the upper lashes
  • Sugarpill Poison Plum applied to lower lash line. Hysteric applied on the lower lash line, but closer to the base of the lashes. A bit of Bulletproof at the outer edge of the lower lash line.
  • Sugarpill Frostine applied to the tear duct area
  • OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Tarred on the waterline and to tightline
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in Black on the lower lashes
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara on the top lashes

EOTD: MTCoffinz and Inglot

Hi hi!

So I've been playing with my MTCoffinz eyeshadows a lot recently and I'm really enjoying "rediscovering" them!  For this look I wanted to play with my coppers!  I've also made it my life's goal to perfect wearing false lashes without (heavy) eyeliner.  This was my first look where I attempted little to no liner and I have to say, I quite liked the result!


Products used:

  • MTCoffinz Under the Rainbow Eyeshadow Primer
  • MTCoffinz Anubis in the tear duct
  • MTCoffinz Tantrum applied to the whole lid
  • MTCoffinz Wired applied to the outer 2/3rd of the lid (over most of the Tantrum)
  • Inglot Matte 342 and Matte 329 in the crease and along the lower lash line
  • A tiny bit of Inglot Gel Liner in 77 applied super closely to the lashes
  • Tarte Inner Rim Brightener applied to the waterline (I think I might have a bad reaction to this product though--the next time I try it, I'll know for sure!  My left eye watered like CRAZY after I applied it...)
  • Red Cherry Lashes in #DW
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in Black on the lower waterline
  • Pure Anada Mascara in Black on upper lashes (before applying the falsies!)

Yep yep!!  Yay for MTCoffinz shadows--they sure are pretty!!

I hope you all are having a lovely weekend and thanks for dropping by!  :)

Butter London: Trustafarian

Today I have a new found respect for all of those wonderful ladies who post pictures of their manicures and of nail polish in general.  That photo taking business of polishes is HARD!  

Here is something new for my blog though--nail polish!  Hooray!  Recently my work had a sale on bodycare items and with my employee discount on top of that, I couldn't resist picking up some Butter London nail polishes.  My first feature post is of Trustafarian!  A beautiful holographic sage green colour.

I applied one coat of the Butter London Flawless Basecoat, three coats of Trustafarian and one coat of Butter London's P.D. Quick Topcoat! 

Click on the pictures for a larger view!

No flash.

With flash!  Holy holographic!

This is my first holographic polish and I have to say--it's love at first sight!  This polish applied quite easily to my nail (I usually HATE painting my nails and I have a hard time not messing up a lot) and I find myself looking at it over and over--especially in sunlight!

Do you have any Butter London holographic polishes?  I'd love to know which are your favorites!  :)

My OCC Lip Tar Collection!

Hello, Hello!



Yesterday I embarked on a bit of a crazy project.  I swatched each of my lip tars!!  What what?  Perhaps that doesn't sound like much of a project, but when you have 37 Lip Tars...the "projectness" of that project really starts to mean something!  :)



For ease of uploading, I used an Imgur album and the pictures can be found here: Lip Tar Collection Swatches - Imgur



The following colours are pictured: Anime, Black Dahlia, Black Metal Dahlia, Decadent, Divine, Electric Grandma, Feathered, Grandma, Harlot, Hollywood, Hoochie, Interlace, January Rising, Jealous, Meta, New Wave, NSFW, Nylon, Pageant, Petty Beige, Pleasure Model, Pretty Boy, Pris, Psycho, Queen, Radiate, Rhythm Box, Role Play, Rollergirl, RX, Stalker, Strumpet, Strutter, Super NSFW, Traffic, Trollop & Yaoi.



*whew!*



Do you have any lip tars? Which are your favorites?  Which Lip Tars are on your "wish list"?!  Inquiring minds want to know!  :)

EOTD: Sugarpill and Madd Style Cosmetics

Hi, and hello!

This evening, whilst getting ready to go over to a friend's to watch the newest episode of Game of Thrones, I decided to dip into some Sugarpill!  I'm in a FB group where we're doing little challenges and the challenge is for us all to use the same colours (or similar colours) in looks to see how we all come up with different ideas, etc.  The challenge for this week was to use Sugarpill's Mochi (or a mint), Sugarpill's Velocity (or a true blue) and Sugarpill's 2am (or a warm purple).  Since 2am isn't vegan, I don't own that one--so I used a warm purple by Madd Style Cosmetics!

And here is the look I came up with:

I think the results are kinda fun!  

Products used:
  • Primer
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in White
  • Korres Eyeliner Pencil in White
  • Sugarpill Candycrush
  • Sugarpill Mochi
  • Madd Style Cosmetics Ickis
  • Sugarpill Velocity
  • Sugarpill Tako
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Cosmetic Pencil in Poolboy
  • Tarte's Inner Rim Brightener
  • Pure Anada Mascara
  • Barry M Bright Turquoise Mascara
I've had this Barry M mascara for a while and I *thought* it didn't work all that well and so I haven't really played around with it.  I'm *really* happy with how well it showed up on my lower lashes though!  Holy heck!  I gotta use this stuff more often!

EOTD: Inglot and Sugarpill

Good evening!

I have been playing with makeup a lot over the past week or so and realized that I should share some love of it here on my blog!  Let the makeup blogging revival begin!!!!!!!! :)

This evening I celebrated the return of Game of Thrones with a friend of mine (I'll be watching it at her house on Monday evenings and I'm super excited for that as she has read the books, so when I get confused I can ask her questions so that I can understand what the heck is going on!  Woo!) and decided to mark the occasion with some colourful liner.  Sugarpill's Royal Sugar really does make an incredible liner when mixed with a mixing medium!


So what'd I use?
  • Mineral Fusion Eye Primer
  • Inglot D.S 501 on the lid
  • A tiny bit of Inglot Pearl 448 at the outer part of the lid
  • Inglot Matte 376 in the crease and blended out with some Matte 390.  376 also applied along the lower lash line
  • Inglot D.S 496 in the tear duct area
  • OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Poolboy to line the lower waterline
  • Sugarpill's Royal Sugar (mixed with Aromaleigh's Indelible Eyeliner Sealant) for winged liner
  • Pure Anada Mascara in Black on the upper and lower lashes
Fun fun fun, n'est-ce pas?  :)
