Sigma brushes and eye shadows! :D

Hey guys! โค In the beginning of August I signed up for Sigma’s affiliate program. A couple of weeks later I recieved a fabulous package from them with a brush kit, called “performance eye kit” and an eyeshadow palette with one eye shadow from each of their three eye shadow palettes: Flare, Dare and Bare.

I have been wanting to try out their brushes for a long time now, so I was super happy when I got this kit! ๐Ÿ˜€ And these brushes are perfect for me, because these are very easy to create small details with, (which I always like to do) ๐Ÿ˜›

The brushes in the kit:

  • E56 is a shader brush, which you can use to pack shadows onto your lid with. I like that it’s not all square shaped, but has a rounded tip. This makes it easier to create a pretty round shape, if you’re dragging the lid color up and into your crease. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • E36ย is a small and fluffy blending brush which is good for blending out shadows in small areas, like the inner corner of your eye, or in the crease if you have very little space from crease to brow.
  • E47 is a crease brush that places and blends out eye shadows beautifully, in the crease.
  • E11 is one of my favorites out of these! I’ve always used my MAC 210 liner brush to cut my crease, since it was the tiniest one I knew of. E11 is actually smaller and I can create a more precise and prettier cut crease with it! ๐Ÿ˜€ Many of you have asked me how I create very precise lines… A good liner brush is the key! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • E46ย is a shader brush that is supposed to be used in the inner corner of the eye, to apply your highlight. It is a very small shader brush, with a pointy tip, which makes it perfect to do this job!
  • E16ย is a tightline liner brush which is great for filling in the space between the lashes, which often is hard to get to. You can fill it in with gel, cream or liquid liners. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • E21 is a smudge brush, which is also one of my favorites! I love using this one to apply eye shadows to my lower lash line! โค It’s also very good for smudging out gel or cream liners along your upper lash line, which is perfect if you want to create a smokey eye! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • E17 is a waterline liner brush. I feel that this brush places the gel or pencil liner onto the waterline very precisely! I don’t get a lot of extra product onto my eye when using this one and that’s definitely good for the eyes. xD

All in all I think these brushes are fabulous! I’ve found a special use for each of them, which make my looks look more precise! ^-^ This kit costs 55$ and you can check it outย here! ( It’s my affiliate link! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) 10 % offย Discount code that you can use the entire month of October: DEAL2012ย ๐Ÿ˜€

These are the shadows I got. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve used mostly “Publicize”, as my highlight color. It’s matte and a little bit lighter than my skin, so it’s perfect for that purpose! ๐Ÿ™‚ The other two colors, I’ve only tried ones.

Surrender is a very pretty burgundy, which would look very good in a fall look! Command is a shimmery gold that would glamour up any look! ;D I like these colors a lot, especially Publicize, which is from the Flare palette. The Flare palette is the palette from Sigma that I’ve always wanted the most, since it contains some really beautiful greens and purples! โค

Here are links to the palettes, if you want to check out all the colors they contain:

Here’s a couple of video tutorial’s I’ve done, where I use the brushes:

In the first video I’m using the E56 shader brush on my lid, the E11 liner brush to create precise lines, the E16 tightline brush to apply a sticky glitter base and the glitter, the E21 smudge brush on my lower lash line. I’m also using Publicize as a brow bone highlight. I’m so sorry that I say “Hare” palette in stead of “Flare” palette in these videos, I just didn’t notice it until after I’d filmed them ๐Ÿ˜›

Here I use Publicize and E21 (the smudge brush):

I hope you liked this review of these Sigma brushes and eye shadows and thank you so much Sigma, for letting me try these out! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค

Marie Antionette inspired (Lime Crime review and makeup look) :)

Hey guys! ^-^ This summer I entered one ofย Makeupbee‘s contests with this Marie Antoinette inspired look, which I called “Would you like some cake?” I was so happy when I found out that I was one of the winners! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you very much for those who voted for me!! โค The prize was these wonderful products fromย Lime Crime!

Here is the look I entered the contest with:

I’ve fimed a tutorial for this look, but this time I used the pink and purple colors from the palette I won. Also, I did a review of the products in the video! ;D

This is the look I did in the video:

Products used:

  • Lime Crime – Candy eyed eyeshadow helper
  • NYX – Jumbo eye pencil in Milk
  • Lime Crime – Palette D’Antionette in Royal Flush
  • Lime Crime – Palette D’Antionette in Ribbonesque
  • Lime Crime – Chinadoll palette in Parasol
  • Lime Crime – Uniliner in Quill
  • Makeup Geek – Eyeshadow in White Lies
  • Maybelline – One by one mascara
  • DUO – Eyelash adhesive
  • Rhinestones from Ebay
  • False eyelashes from Ebay

Review of the Lime Crime makeup products:

Palette D’Antionette:

This beautiful palette has 4 vibrant matte colors called Royal Flush, Absinthe-Minded, Macarooned and Ribbonesque, and 1 shimmery, silver color called Mercurious. I think this is the perfect combination of pastel colors, which will make any look super cute and pretty! โค

I also got their fabulous primer, which I’ve used in the bottom swatch-picture! ๐Ÿ˜€

The palette costs 34,99 $ and you can get itย hereย ๐Ÿ™‚

Uniliners:

I got these three liners. The black one is called “Quill”, the blue “Blue Milk” and the neon yellow “Citreuse”. I love that Lime Crime has colorful liners you can choose from and they are so pigmented! The best thing about them has to be the precision they give! The applicator is very small, so it’s easier to create tiny details and to built up your liner. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve seen so many amazing looks created with these uniliners, so my excitement for these was very high. I must say they haven’t dissapointed! โค

Each uniliner costs 13,99 $ and you can get themย here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lip stick:

Lime Crime is probably most famous for their colorful, creamy lip sticks, with the cutest packaging, (which I love!) I already have one called Glamour 101 and now I got this one, called Coquette. Nude lipsticks don’t usually look very good on me, but this one has some peach to it, so a small amount applied with my fingers, looks wonderful! ^-^

Their lip sticks cost 15,99 $ each and you can check out all the awesome colors, here. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope that you found this short review helpful and that you liked the look! ๐Ÿ˜€

Alice in Wonderland series: The Mad Hatter!

Hi sweeties! ๐Ÿ˜€

This is a Mad Hatter inspired look, which is the last look in the Alice in Wonderland series. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love Johnny Depp’s character in the Tim Burton movie and tried to capture his “mad” behavior in a makeup look. My eyes aren’t matching and lots of glitter helps on the pretty crazyness! ;D I hope you like the look!
