Makeup Haul ft. Milani Bella Eyes and NYX Macaron Lipsticks

30 Jul

Hello, all! So starting my job about a month ago meant I had a lot of spare cash laying around…gathering dust…begging me to spend it on makeup. Welp, I’m not one to deny its wishes.

I’ve heard a lot of hype about the Milani Bella Eyes and NYX Macaron Lipsticks lately, so I decided to pick a few up. I did my research (aka googled pictures until my eyes bled from longing) and picked the products that were, in my opinion, the most superior.

Or I might have just picked colors I liked. Whichever makes this purchase seem more justified 🙂

NYX Macaron Lipsticks in Blue Velvet (pictured), Pistachio (mint green), Chambord (black), and Coconut (white). The blue and green are just gorgeous and unique, and the black and white will help create new lip colors without spending $18 on an OCC Lip Tar. Eeep, those things are pricey.

NYX Blush in Taupe: a fantastic contour shade for fair skin.

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows in Bella Violet (pictured), Bella Ivory (matte white), Bella Diamond (shimmery white), Bella Emerald (metallic dark green), and Bella Mandarin (shimmery orange). Apparently the texture of these is fantastic, so I expect great things.

Anywho, that about wraps up this haul! Anything catch your eye? Let me know if you’d like a review on any of these products, although I might just do one regardless 😀

Shoot me a comment if you enjoyed this post or if you have any suggestions for future tutorials, reviews, and tags; I’d love to hear them!

LOTD: Chaos ft. UD Electric Palette

29 Jul

chaos collage 3

Hello, all! I didn’t think I’d have a post for you guys today, but the gods have smiled down upon me and granted me an occasion to wear blue eyeshadow.

Although honestly I’d take grocery shopping as an occasion to wear blue eyeshadow. chaos collage

I was wearing this for about 5 hours before I got the time to take pictures, so apologies if it’s looking a bit rough around the edges.chaos collage 2As I’m sure you’ve noticed, my trick for eyeshadow when I’m in a hurry is to apply a light, shimmery color all over the lid and a darker color on the outer part and slightly into the crease. Takes almost no blending to make it look presentable, and you can switch up the color for some interesting combinations.

For those of you who requested pictorials, I’M SORRY I KEEP FORGETTING. Super sorry. I will start doing them, I promise. chaos collage 4 What do you think? Too crazy?chaos collage 5Products used:

Makeup for Work: Simple Plum ft. Lorac Pro Palette 2

28 Jul

Hello, all! Another quick look for you today, but as I mentioned I’m rather behind in the interesting posts. Figured I’d post it at any rate, as some people don’t wear crazy rainbow things on a daily basis 🙂

plum collageI was having fun with the Lorac Pro 2 again. I am really enjoying the plum color (aptly named Plum) because of how muted down it is. Believe it or not, the only other decent purples I own are from Sugarpill. Yeah. Not muted. plum collage 2This technique with the purple could be substituted with a dark green like Jade or blue like Navy to achieve a similar effect on different eye colors. plum collage 3 Oh! My face! So close!plum collage 4Products used:

♦ Lorac Pro Palette 2: Plum, Beige, Snow, Nectar, Buff (my review here)
