Urban Decay Book Of Shadows 3!

I was finally able to nab this from Sephora! I totally missed it when it was available on Urban Decay's website. I guess I wasn't available those particular 10 minutes it was in stock on that one day. But I'm no longer (as) miffed now that I have my beloved Book Of Shadows in hand!  Boy is it gorgeous! From the lighted inner lid to all 7 of the new colors I'm totally amped! All of the new colors are total winners! The city themed names of all the colors in the palette is so fitting and cute.
 I've heard alot of people asking if they have BOS 2 is it necessary to get volume 3? Yes it is. It's also necessary to get it if you have volume 1, the Ammo Palette, Alice in Wonderland BOS or a limited number of Urban Decays single shadows. Or if your a collector. I guess what I'm really saying is if you want it or think you want it and can afford to; get it.

Weekender!

So it's not the weekend but since I used SugarPill's Weekender ChromaLust on my lid I thought that would be a great title. (That and I didn't know what else to call this post.) This one of the seven new ChromaLusts that SugarPill released at the beginning of this month. In my initial post I said I would try using these with Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy. This one worked beautifully! No mixing medium needed (even though I had it at the ready)! This is such a gorgeous color! So rich and shimmery! I love the color of all the little sparkles in it and guess what? No fall out with the Epoxy!

Faithfully Yours!

Last week I picked up Faithfully Yours, one of the new Pro Longwear Lipcremes from M.A.C. I was the most excited about this shade, it jumped out at me at update and I knew I had to have it! It's really interesting (at least on my skin). It's this dirty mauve purple that can venture from warm to cool to neutral depending on what it's paired with. I think alot of different skintones can rock this shade even if you only use it as a stain. The formula itself is very light-weight and provides excellent coverage. It has M.A.C's signature scent and is packaged in a matte black cylindrical tube that has to be "snapped" closed or it will dry out. There are some nice shades in this formula and I think they're definitely worth a look. These retail for $16.

NEW SugarPill Chromalusts!!

 Hi Guys! When I saw SugarPill had released 7 new ChromaLust Loose Shadows I knew I had to have them! These are the same bright, pigmented and interesting colors I've come to know and love from this company. I do find that the base and application of these shadows do affect the look of them greatly. For me the best way to use these are mixed with M.A.C's waterbased mixing medium and applied over Urban Decay's Primer Potion.

FYRINNAE!!

            Hi!! If you can't tell, I'm super excited! I just discovered this fabulous little cosmetic company named Fyrinnae! It was all just by chance actually. I was on Lipglossiping reading one of her posts and she was showing how different eyeshadows looked on different eyeshadow bases one of which being Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy. After seeing the comparison I knew I had to have it! One trip to Fyrinnae's website later and I was sold!

Soft Plum

This is a quick look I did using M.A.C Colour 3 Quad (LE) from Spring Color Forecast. It's such a gorgeous quad, but I think the base I used (Clinique Touchbase in Uplighting)  monochromatically softened this look waaayy more than I would have liked. Details to follow!

Pomegranate Smoke!

Hi Everyone! This is a quick look I did tonight centered aroud Stila's Smudge Pot in Pomegranate. This is such a gorgeous shade, but it was limited edition. I've seen it floating around though and if you haven't tried these, this particular shade would be a great start and worth a little hunt. It's so rich and saturated and it DOESN'T BUDGE after it's applied! Not to mention it contains pomegranate extract and other natural additives to boot!

Autumn Sunset

Hi Everyone! This is a look I did that reminded me of a sunset I would see in Autumn. I didn't plan on using such saturated lips with this, but M.A.C's lipstick in Kirsch jumped out at me and I went for it!
More pics and deets after the jump!

Temperature Rising!!


M.A.C Poetique Lipglass on Lips
Hi guys! I know we've all been bombarded with images of dark, vampy fall makeup but it's in the 90's here and I had to do another summer look! This is a quick & simple look that can be worn natural or more dramatic. I've included both variations here since I couldn't decide myself! More details after the jump!
