Olive Smokey FOTD featuring CoverGirl's TruNaked Pallet in Goldens

As I posted yesterday, I am really enjoying this new CoverGirl TruNaked pallet in Goldens.  The colors are just beautiful together, and you can create extremely neutral, to beautiful smokey eyes.  

In this look I used the darker side of the pallet to create a smokey olive look.  In the crease I blended the dark brown (3rd from right) with the darkest shade (far-right).  On the lid I used the olive shimmer (4th from right) and also used this on my lower lashline.  To highlight I used the satin shade on the far left.  This color doesn't have much shimmer, but isn't a true matte.  This just brightened and lifted the eye.

Like I've said - a very versatile pallet at a great price!  I would love to hear what you think of these new colors from CoverGirl!

FOTD: Covergirl TruNaked Goldens Pallet

I posted some swatches of the new Cover Girl TruNaked Goldens pallet, and today is a quick FOTD I did using them as well.  These are gorgeous, highly compatible and blendable shadows.  Like I mentioned in the earlier post, I am blown away by the quality of these, especially when used over a base.  CoverGirl was never my "go to" drug store brand for eyeshadows, but I am absolutely loving this pallet and will definitely take a look at the other two available.  I also will say, although they are attempting to be a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked pallets, these do have some different colors in the mix, making these a lot of fun to work with!

Below is my quick cut-crease with the pallet.  I used the darkest brown for the crease, blended it into the third-from-the-left and blended that into the third-from-the-right for my crease.  The lid is the second from the right, and my highlight is the farthest to the right.  Gorgeous - a simple and easy way to create a neutral cut crease, and at a drug-store cost!  

Lips are the Younique Opulence Lipstick in Stuck Up.  Cheeks is the Nars Orgasm blush.

Swatches: CoverGirl TruNaked Golden's Pallet

CoverGirl has introduced a new eyeshadow pallet targeting the Urban Decay Naked series.  There are three pallets (Goldens, Roses and Nudes).  I instantly went towards the Goldens, so I had to buy them to try it out.  These retail around $10-$12, depending on where you purchase.

These truly are beautiful.  Talk about compatible, shimmer-filled, gorgeousness.  

I have tried CoverGirl shadows before only to be disappointed at the texture and pigmentation.  Let me just tell you, that is not the case here.  These shadows couldn't be more pigmented and blendable.  I used the Cinderella eyeshadow primer that is available at Walgreens (this stuff is amazing if you haven't tried it, and only $2.99!)

Swatches are below over the primer.  There is also a video to try and capture the sparkle and duochorome of some of the colors.  I will also post a couple of FOTD's using these!  


Have you picked up any of these pallets?  What do you think?

A Quick Look: Laura Geller Italian Garden Volume 2 (Auto Delivery from QVC)

I received my next installment of the Laura Geller Italian Garden set came, and it's a beauty!  I have a lot of Laura Geller, and I mean alot, but none of the shadows I own are blue.  This is an absolutely gorgeous set, and I will swatch them later this week.

FOTD: Younique Beachfront Bronzer, Opulence Lipstick and Lip Pencil in Pouty

Back in August, Younique had a Kudo's featuring their Beachfront Bronzer, new Opulence Lipstick in Stuck Up, and Precision Pencil (choice of lip or eye).  I chose a lip pencil in Pouty.  

The Beachfront bronzer is a split bronzer, one side a lighter shade, and the other side a swirled mix of two-three darker colors.  Swirled all together it gives a beautiful, non-orange glow to the skin.  I actually use the darker shade as a contour and apply the lighter shade as a blush on days I am looking for a more subdued, neutral look.  

The lipstick and pencil are below.  Opulence lip colors are extremely light in texture, non sticky, but very pigmented.  This color in particular is a favorite of mine in the winter months, as it a nice deep shade for my pale skin, without being overly "vampy".  The Pouty lip pencil is the perfect compliment to this color too!

A total look below.  Honestly, I don't remember what eyeshadows I am wearing, but I can probably dig back through my drawers and figure out which ones they are.  I really do love the combination though!

EOTD: Anatastasia Beverly Hills "Self Made" Pallet and Violet Voss "Chocolate Swirl" Glitter

The neutral shades in this Self Made pallet are just gorgeous.  Below I used the following, including some new glitter I picked up from Violet Voss, called "Chocolate Swirl".  

For the look I used the following:
Urban Decay Primer Potion - original
ABH Self Made - Hot and Cold - upper crease
ABH Self Made - Spirit Rock - deep crease/outer corner / lower lashline
ABH Self Made - Witchy - lid / lower lashline
ABH Self Made - Treasure - highlight
Violet Voss "Chocolate Swirl" - applied with their Secret Weapon Glitter Adhesive to lid
ELF Precision Liquid Eyeliner - black
Younique 3D Fiber Lash mascara

Can I just say, that Secret Weapon Glitter Adhesive holds ALL DAY LONG?!  Love this, and have reinvigorated my love for glitter because I won't have fall out!

Anastasia Beverly Hills "Self Made" Pallet - A closeup and FOTD

I was so excited to get the Anastasia Beverly Hills "Self Made" Pallet for Christmas - this is one of those I have been looking at each and every time I walk into Sephora, only to walk out without it.  

Closeups of each of the colors are below - they are very pigmented and mostly creamy.  Even the mattes glide on with ease and don't tug on your skin.  I will post a few looks with this over the upcoming days.
