MUG and Maybelline! ^-^

Yay! Today, I got the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I bought during their “We love MUGs”-sale! 😀 I’ve only swatched them, but I absolutely love them already! So pretty colors and they’re so soft and silky! ❤ I can’t wait to make looks with these, and I’ll definitely do a review of the MUG eyeshadows I have, which are not in their “Starter kit”. You can check out the review on that kit, here. 🙂

I also got the Maybelline Fit Me foundation today, which I’m excited to be trying out! ^-^ Let me know if you want a review on it! 🙂

I hope you’re having a wonderful week!

Let’s Rock! :D

Here’s an other very glittery look for you lovelies! 😀 I was listening to Status Quo’s song “Let’s Rock” the other day, and was inspired to do this look! I love this band, but I don’t think anyone loves it more than my mom, hehe! 😛 I feel like red, purple and black are very Rock’n Roll colors, when you put them together. To make the look a little bit more special, I added three different glitters from TheNailDazzle. All the shadows and the upper eyelashes are from Sugarpill! ❤ I hope you enjoy the look. 🙂

This is going to give some your crease, slightly above your normal                   dimension to the look.                 crease. Follow this shape.

Place Hysteric (dark, shimmery purple)                   Apply Asylum (red) to the inner part of over the black and blend it upward.                          the eye, Poison Plum (purple) in the Blend this eyeshadow out with Paper Doll               middle and then black at the end.

Apply Stella (black) in the crease, to                          Apply purple glitter over the purple create even more depth. Place a glitter-                    shadow and black glitter over the  base over the red and apply red glitter.                      black shadow. Blend them slightly.

Use a liquid liner on your upper lash line. (It’s easier to use a liquid liner than a gel liner, if you’ve got glitter on your lid.) Apply black to the upper – and lower waterline, with a gel liner or a pencil liner. Set it with a matte, black eyeshadow. Place Hysteric on your lower lash line. To finish off the look, apply some gorgeous false lashes to your upper – and lower lash line! 😀

I hope you liked the tutorial and that you’re having a great day! ^-^

Lime Crime – Review!

I’ve been trying out some Lime Crime products for a week now and thought I would share my thoughts about it, with you! 🙂 I bought three loose eyeshadows, one lipstick and one lip gloss. The primer I’ve had for a couple of months already. The packaging is so cute! ❤

The loose eyeshadows (Magic Dusts) I have, are Troubadour, Abracadabra and Lime Criminal. Love the names! 😀 They are all very shimmery colors and in the box you can see that they contain lots of sparkle! But as you can see from this look, they are shimmery, but they don’t look too sparkly on the lid, which I think is great! I think they have good pigmentation, but I had to apply a couple of layers to get the satisfied strength. They are easy to blend and the colors are beautiful! 🙂 Net weight: 2 g / 0.07 oz.

Swatches:

Troubadour: The perfect baby blue color!

Abracadabra: This is a beautiful, vibrant pink shadow, with subtle blue sparkles.

Lime Criminal: A shimmery, true lime color. Really gorgeous!

The Candy eyed eyeshadow helper:

This primer is amazing! It’s my new favorite one, which I use every day! 😀 So my beloved Too Faced Shadow Insurance is replaced with this cutie. 😉 Here is what Lime Crime says it does:

  • Prevents creasing for up to 24 hours
  • Makes your eye makeup waterproof
  • Intensifies color and keep it vibrant
  • Comes off with waterproof makeup remover or lotion

It definitely does exactly what it says! I’ve never experienced any creasing when using it and it grabs on to the shadow so well, even better than the Too Faced one! I can confirm that it is waterproof, because I have even cried, (don’t worry, it was tears of joy 😉 ), without the makeup even moving a bit! :O Lime Crime says the eyeshadow helper is formulated to withstand heat, sweat and even the oiliest of eyelids! My eyes are very dry and it works wonders for me too! ^^ It contains 7 g/ 0, 25 oz. of product.

Glamour 101 lipstick:

This gorgeous lipstick has the perfect wine red color I’ve been looking for! It’s a more deep red than the picture shows, because the exact color didn’t show up on camera. :/ Lime Crime describes it as a brown-based retro red. It is extremely pigmented and smooth. I used it when I went to the movies the other day and it stayed in place all day! 🙂 I would recommend lining your lips with a lip liner before applying this, to prevent feathering. Glamour 101 is a part of Lime Crime’s Lip Noir Collection and is a limited edition lipstick. It contains 3.5 g / 0.12 oz. of product.

Candy Apple lip gloss: 

The lip gloss is a part of this winter’s Carousel Gloss Collection and it is a deep ruby red color, filled with beautiful glitter! 😀 I love this lip gloss! It is very pigmented and applies smoothly. Apply a lip liner with this gloss as well. Remember blotting the inner part of your lips a few times, because it will transfer to your teeth if you don’t. Amount of product: 3.5 g / 0.12 oz. The color of the lipstick is closer to the color of the lip gloss, that this picture shows!

Candy Apple looks really good over Glamour 101. Together, these two lip products look even more vibrant! 😀

All in all I love the Lime Crime products I’ve got and the best part is that they are cruelty-free and most of them are vegan! The eyeshadows cost 13,99$, the lipsticks are 15,99$ and the lip glosses cost 16,99$. I think they are a bit expensive, but they’re very good! You can find these products, here.

I hope this review was helpful!

Buxom Mix & Mingle set – review and swatches!

This weekend I recived this Buxom set, which I won in the Makeup Geek Weekly Challenge. 😀 I’ve tryed it a few times now and thought I’d show you some swatches of the lip products! The set contains 4 mini lip sticks and 4 lip glosses.

Buxom is a Bare Escentuals line and I didn’t know they had this line before I got this set. Now, I’m glad I got to try out some of their products! All of them smell like delicious caramel and chocolate, which I like. 🙂 The colors are so pretty and natural, which is great for me, because I always do very dramatic eye makeup and these will tone the whole look down a bit. They contain vitamin A and E to make the lips soft and they are ment to create fuller looking lips. I think my lips got slightly fuller with these, but not dramatically. You get a tingly feeling when you first apply these. This is because the lip stick and gloss is making your lips a bit sore and in that way plumpy.

The lip sticks are matte and so smooth! I love the way they’re created, because you can use it as a lip liner as well as a lip stick! I think they were easy to apply and they lasted for hours! When I put on one of these this morning I thought I’d touch it up a bit after 2-3 hours. But to my surprise it still looked perfect! 😀 So I’ll definitely be wearing these more, on a daily basis. Here are the swatches of the lip sticks:

The lip glosses or as it says on the packaging, the big and healthy lip polishes, have lots of gold sparkle to them and they are very pretty! But they are a bit sticky and create lines in the outer corners of my lips, especially if I wear them over the lip sticks. Other than that, they’re good. Here are the lip polish swatches:

Here are my favorites, on my lips:

 

All in all, I love the colors, smell and how long lasting these Buxom lip products are! I don’t mind my lips looking a bit fuller and more sparkly. 😀 The only negative thing, is the slightly sticky lip glosses. But I think I can survive that 😉

This is a limited edition set that costs 39 $, but has a value of 72 $. It’s out of stock right now, but when it hopefully comes back, you can buy it here or get the products individually at Sephora.

I hope you liked this review!

NYX Glitterati Glitter Cream Palette – Review! :)

The NYX Glitterati Glitter Cream Palette consists of 21 glittery, cream colors. I got this palette from my fiance, last Christmas, and I’ve used a lot of it this past year! ❤ I was a little dissapointed at first, because I thought the glitter would appear more vibrant on my lid. But I don’t think these creams are suppose to be used alone! They only appear chunky and crease that way. What I use the creams for, is as a base for loose glitter! I use them as a base on my lid, brow, lips and if I want to use glitter as my liner. But you can use these colors anywhere you want to place loose glitter! 😀

I often get questions about this palette and how I use it, so I thought I’d show you in pictures how I create glitter eyebrows. An important thing to remember when applying this as a glitter base, is to only apply a thin layer of it! This will prevent the glitter on top of it from creasing. 🙂 I also use the creams in the same color as the loose glitter I’m using.

Here’s the tutorial on how I do the brows:

Apply eyeshadows to the brows, in the same colors as the glitters you’re going to place on top. This will make everything look more compound, even if there’s a few places the glitter doesn’t cover. I thought blue and green would be a cool combination! ^-^

With a small, angled brush start applying the darkest green glitter cream on the inner part of the brow. Then use the lightest blue color in the middle and the darkest on the outer corner. Blend these colors slightly together.

Use the same angled brush to apply the loose glitter over the glitter creams. Apply it carefully to prevent a lot of fallouts and take your time! If there is any fallout and you want to sharpen the edges, use a piece of tape to pick up the glitter and to fix the brow shape. In the end, go over with a q-tip with makeup remover. Now you’re all done and can start applying your eye makeup! 😀

I absolutely love this palette and I’m glad I got it, because now I can’t live without it! I’m too in love with glitter, lol! 😉

You can find the palette here 🙂

I hope this review and tutorial was helpful!
