NYX Pink Sparkle again!





This is probably one of my favorite lipglosses, it's so easy to like. The colour of course is depending a lot, but the texture is so smooth and work so nicely on the lip.
It reminds a bit of whipped cream, that's the closest I can think of!

But before applying this lovely gloss today, I started by putting a thin layer of NYX Jumbo Pencil Cottage Cheese (shimmery white) just to make the lips paler. 
Then on with the gloss (NUX Diamond Sparkle Lipgloss in Pink Sparkle), and this was the result!

Enjoy!

Awesome Purple Eyes




Just thought it was about time to combine two of my favorite palettes; Good Girl and Bad Girl from Sleek properly! And what a great thing to do. It's really fun sometimes just to add colours together and also to blend warmer and colder hues in the same mixture.


Here's what I used:
Primer - Medusa Stick It!
Shadows - Sleek Palette in Good Girl & Bad Girl, Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in  Weekender, Shiro Cosmetic The Legends Collection  in Puzzle Cube
Eyepencil - Awesome Performance from MUS
Eyeliner - Precision Ink from Illamasqua
Lash Art - MUFE Single Eyelashes-  104 
Mascara - Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara
Glitter - Purple Rain Glitter Eyeliner from MUS
Eyebrow - Wolf from Illamasqua

Enjoy!

Electric Blue!









I wanted to go all in for blue today, but also with a thicker eyeliner and I was really pleased of how the look turned out. 
I tried mixing two glitter eyeliners for a darker effect, and if you haven't tried that, do it immediately! I mixed a black one with a blue on the back of my hand, to create a good medium blue.
And I tried some single lashes to get a more pointy look, but they were nearly visable! So I ended up with kind of thicker lashes, but hey that's a plus!


My products:
Primer - NYX JEP in Milk
Shadows - Inglot Freedom System in numbers 415 & 13. Medusa Electro Black. OCC Concentrate Pigment in Iced with Tako Pressed Eyeshadow from SugarPill
Eyepencil - Sparkling Beach from MUS
Eyeliner - Barry M Glitter Eyeliner Black mixed with Pow! Dazzling Eyeliner from Collection 2000
Lashes - False Eye Lashes in 009 by Illamasqua
Mascara - Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes in Black
Eyebrow - Tri Brow Colour by MUS

Over and out!

Illamasqua's Lipstick in Drench



Finally I was able to captured Illamasqua's lipstick in Drench on. And what can I say? I just love the colour. It reminds me of strawberry red with a hint of pink in it. It still gives quite a matte finish and the coverage is great, yet without the lips feeling dry. I can see myself wearing this together with a bold eyeliner or with a pair of green smokey eyes or why not strong acid green ones?!

Do you got any favorite lipstick? Tell me!

An attempt to be black






Call me crazy... but I just had to try this out!
I don't know how many times I wished I was black, so that's the main reason for doing this. Though, it looks really odd with my light eyes, but I have seen a lot black ladies with green eyes, and that is soooo beautiful.
I know this isn't anything spectacular, but still, so odd to see the reflection in the mirror and look so different!
I used a sample kit I ordered from Keromask a while ago, and seeing the darkest colours made me want to try it! The kit is in Medium shade, and has a lot of varieties from real light to more darker colours in concealers and powders.
even if you don't want to be black, this could be a good way to find out new products for your complexions.
You can find them here.

Products in action:
Complexions - Base: Medium no 15, and powder Medium
Eyepencil - S.O.P.H.I.E Pencil by Illamasqua
Eyeliner - S.O.P.H.I.E Pencil from Illamasqua
Mascara - Skinny Brush Mascara from Eyeko
Eyebrows - Black eyeshadow from a Sleek palette

Also know, that I hope I don't offend anyone out there who is black because that wasn't my intentions, I simply envy you sometimes, that's why I tried it.

Over and out!

Out of the box!

Today I'm bored... What to do?

Glossy lips plus....
A jar of multi-coloured sprinkles equals... 
Sprinkled lips!!! Tadaaa!






Hm, not so bad after all...

Utterly officially super cool!

Crap!

Long lasting? Not at all

But tasty? Oh yes!

Very tasty! Yummy!

Mmmmm....

Ugh, it's ruined!

Low mood state. 

But it was worth it. Do it again? Hm... probably!
Anyone want to try sprinkled lips? It was hilarious, and so out of the box!
Must do it again. Maybe I'll develop diabetics....

Over and out!

Slightly Golden





I'm going a bit shy today! Slightly golden orange, and bam! Some blue!
I used Washed Ashore from the Monaco Palette by Sleek up to the crease, and then my favorite highlighter at the moment: The Finishing Powder in Flash Glow from MadMinerals. Flash Glow is supposed to be used to highlight the cheekbones, but I use it mainly for my eyes, and from time to time on the cheeks.
And to spice up the orange, I used a dark purple pencil as eyeliner. And that's it for today!

List of products:
Primer - High Tech Lighter Moondust from MUS
Shadows - Monaco Palette from Sleek in Washed Ashore, MadMinerals Finishing Powder in Flash Glow, Ocarina from the Legends Collection by Shiro Cosmetics on a white eyepencil
Eyepencil - Snowflake by MUS
Eyeliner - Awesome Performance from MUS
Mascara - Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes in Black
Eyebrow - Powder Eyeshadow Wolf by Illamasqua

Enjoy!

Inglot Freedom System

First time I stumbled over Inglot Cosmetics was at Westfield in London during the summer of 2010. It was like entering a candy store, well those of you who have visit one would know what I'm talking about and you who hasn't been to one, make sure to visit one ASAP. The one thing with Inglot that make me go berserk is their Freedom System. It's the smartest thing ever and it gives you the possibility to create your own desirable palettes with mixing powder, concealer, blushes, lipstick and eyeshadow to already pre design palettes. In other words you pick what you want after which size of palette you got.

I got eyeshadows, lipstick and blushes. I really love their eyeshadows and they come in all kinds of structures like matte, pearl and really glittery ones, and their pigmentation is just divine. I'm going to show you the lipstick in a later post, as I need to do swatches of them properly! Best thing about the palettes is that you can arrange them all together how you want them and easily adjust them any time you want.

Here's all my eyeshadows palettes together, a real joy to look at:



brown/blue
Note: AMC S stands for AMC SHINE


green/turquoise



purple/pink



Blush




At the time I got my palettes at Inglot I think if one purchased like 10 pans of eyeshadows the palette came with them, free of charge. A really smart deal, if you ask me! One disadvantage that I've notice with the eyeshadows and blushes are that they're kind of sensitive. They do crumble pretty easy even with the slightest touch and one has to be really carefully especially with the blushes. Also if you want to rearranged them, make sure to use delicate hands as they could crack if the pan is bend even in a tiny angle.

What do you think about Inglot?

Enjoy!
