EOTD: My Little Vibrant Gem

I finally felt in the mood to play in my much-neglected makeup collection, and this is what I came up with.  I love the combination of teal and purple, so I tend to be drawn towards it when I want some color.  I cropped my brows out of the picture because I'm still growing them out and didn't bother doing anything with them.  They're wild!!!

Products are listed below. 

Told you my brows are scary!

Upper Crease - Darling Girl Cosmetics My Little Pony
Outer V - BFTE Dark Prince (limited edition)

Review of exclusive shades - The Rhinestone Housewife

I was given the opportunity to review a few products from The Rhinestone Housewife.  I received Cosmic Cathouse eyeshadow, Pangalactic Painted Lady eyeshadow and Meteor Madame lip gloss.  All of these items were made exclusively for The Rhinestone Housewife by Geek Chic Cosmetics.

Cosmic Cathouse and Pangalactic Painted lady are 5 gm eyeshadows listed at $7.00 each.  Meteor Madame is sold in a twist-top click pen and has a light cherry scent.  It's listed at $6.00.   Everything is cruelty free, gluten free and  vegan.

Let's get on to the swatches!

L to R: Meteor Madame, Cosmic Cathouse, Pangalactic Painted Lady (eyeshadows swatched over primer)

Aren't they gorgeous!!!  Pangalactic Painted Lady absolutely glows!  Cosmic Cathouse has become my go-to gold when I'm creating a neutral look, and Meteor Madame is beautiful layered over pink lipstick.

I would definitely recommend these products to everyone.  They can be found at: The Rhinestone Housewife.

All products mentioned were received for review, but any opinions are my own.

This is an EOTD from earlier this week.  I can't remember the exact colors that I used, but they were a combination of colors from the BH Cosmetics Party Girl palette and the Day and Night Palette.  The lipstick in the partial face pic is Morgana Cryptoria Boysenberry.

FOTD June 13, 2013

This is pretty much my "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That" makeup face.  Bare minimum, no foundation.  I tried out a new product today, the L'oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur, and I think I really like it.  Oh, yeah.  And I shaved my head since the last time I posted a picture that included hair.  It's grown back quite a bit now.

 As you can tell, I was still half asleep this morning. :)

L'oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream
Covergirl +Olay Concealer Balm in Medium/Deep
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Hot Tamale
Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara
Milani ColorStatement Lipstick in Flamingo Pose

EOTD: Colorful Mattes

I'm going to preface this by saying that I won't be posting the shadows that I used.  That particular company isn't around anymore and cheated a lot of people before they closed.  I'm really disappointed about it because their mattes were really, really nice.  The lippie is Milani Hot Pink Rage.

I really like the way this look turned out.  I rarely wear colors, so it's always nice to shake things up.

EOTD: Obviously a Queen

I'm finally starting to use shadows that I haven't tried before.  My sample collection is ridiculous, so I'm trying to use my unloved shadows instead of always going with my usual shadows.  I really like the way that these colors went together.  It ended up being colorful without being overly bright.

It's been a while since I've posted a full-face picture wearing more than just lipstick.  I very rarely wear foundation, so it's nakey face.  It's from a few weeks ago, but I'm finally getting around to posting it so we'll pretend it's fairly new. :)

So I haven't been posting my empties/used-up items, but I have been keeping track of them.  Since my last post, these are all the things that I've used up.

Sorry it's blurry!!!

As you can see, I've been a busy bee.  I'm still not buying any bath and body products until I've finished my entire stash.  I have been buying perfume still (can't help it!), but I can't use any of my full sizes until all of the sample perfumes are gone.  All in all, I'm doing pretty well. :)

Unposted EOTDs

I found some old EOTD pictures that I had taken and never posted.  I figured today would be a good day to post them.  Sorry, but I don't remember what was used for any of these looks.

LOTD - Morgana Cryptoria Candy Apple


Lipstick -Morgana Cryptoria LE Lipstick in Candy Apple
Liner - Wet 'n' Wild lip liner in Berry Red

RiRi Woo!

I know I've been a bad, bad blogger, but I wanted to post a few swatches of RiRi Woo.  This is definitely one of my new favorites.  I don't own Ruby Woo and can't compare them for myself, but I know that I definitely need a backup of this one when it's re-released.

Please ignore how bad my lips looks.  I was so excited when it arrived that I had to throw it on, even though I was only staying at home.  You really do need to exfoliate before wearing this one, though.

Cut crease attempt #1

I decided to try a cut crease today using the Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette.  It's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Pretty good for a first try. :)  I didn't keep track of which colors I used. 

The lips are NYX Prune lip liner with Lilac Rose lipstick from Morgana Cryptoria and Hard Candy Plumping gloss in Jellyfish.  The camera did not pick up the true color at all.  Sigh.
