FOTD: Wet 'n Wild Limited Edition 8-Pan Palette in "Walk the Red Carpet" & Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara

 

Today's look is using a Wet 'n Wild pallet that I forgot I had - untouched and sparkling up at me in my makeup drawer this morning....the Limited Edition 8-Pan in "Walk the Red Carpet".  This gorgeous pan is packed full of golden neutrals, some full of sparkle and some completely matte.  A beautiful set of colors, I can't believe I haven't opened it up until now!  Topped off the gold with my Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara and my Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in Standout, and I was ready to go!

FOTD:Younique Pigments in Beautiful, Irresistable, Daring, and Angelic & Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara


As I have been recently obsessed with the Younique line, I wanted to play around with their matte pigments, as well as the metallics that I tend to lean towards.  I used all pigments on top of Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin, so there is a slight shimmer even to the mattes as a result.

To create the look I used the following:

UDPP in Sin all over lid
Younique Pigment in Beautiful - upper crease
Younique Pigment in Irresistable - deep in crease
Younique Pigment in Daring - outer corner, deep in crease / lower lashline
Younique Pigment in Confident - inner corner to middle of lid
Younique Pigment in Angelic - ontop of Confident on inner corner / highlight / lower lashline
Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara

I was pleasantly surprised as to how well the pigments worked on top of a "standard" primer.  I tend to lean towards those that are more sticky in consistency (i.e. Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy) when I am working with loose pigments, but this worked really well.

What is your favorite pigment from the line?

Spotted at Meijer: Halloween 2014 by Kiss, Sally Hansen, Fantasy Makers and Wet 'n Wild

Tons of Halloween items are starting to pop up in the drug stores and mass merchandisers!  While at Meijer over the weekend, I spotted the coveted pumpkin polishes, along with several offerings from Fantasy Makers, Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Stickers, and Kiss.  I love this time of year - it's always fun to see the new products come out!

Revlon Fall/Winter 2014 Boho Chic Collection by Gucci Westman: Closeup & Swatches of Creme Luxe Eyeshadow in Street Style


Every year I look forward to the Gucci Westman collaboration with Revlon, and this year did not disappoint.  There are several gorgeous glitter-infused nail polish, new eyeshadow quads, and as I discovered this year, a Luxe Creme eyeshadow in Street Wear.  

This particular shadow has a consistency similar to the other gel products that have hit the market recently: Almay Eyeshadow Softies, L'Oreal Visible Lift Blushes, just to name a few.  Although there was only one color on the display, I imagine this is the first of many to come for Revlon and their entries into the market. 


The color is a rich black base with tons of shimmer: gold, blue, turquoise and evergreen.   


The consistency is that of a sponge.  Very soft, not wet, and easy to use and blend with just your fingertip.  Unfortunately, as I just swatched this, I cannot speak to the duration of the product, but I do intend on using it tomorrow and testing it on some primer.  

I absolutely love the color.  Anything that has green in it is instantly a hit for me.  I would love to see this kind of a shade in a gel eyeliner (hint hint...).  Reminds me a lot of the green side on the MAC Venomous Villians "She Who Dares" eyeshadow.  Pretty!!


Have you seen and/or tried this yet?  I checked google and didn't see anything on it, but figured I would ask!

Sunset EOTD Using Younique Moodstruck Pigments in Heartbroken, Gorgeous and Divine


Another look featuring the Younique Moodstruck pigments.  Talk about color, I absolutely love "Gorgeous", the bright orange color in the crease and along the lower lashline.  This color certainly adds a ton of color and really enhanced the green of my eyes.  I blended the "Gorgeous" into "Heartbroken", which then blended into "Divine", a rich coppery, almost black brown shade.  Line the lids and add the Moodstruck 3D Fiber mascara and I was set!  

I'm ready for fall...can you tell?

EOTD with Fyrinnae's Velvet Vampire, Urban Decay Black Out & Naked, Younique Sassy Pigment


As I have been playing around with the Younique pigments, I am finding how beautiful they are.  Today's looked features "Sassy", a rich, slightly pink, berry color.  I combined this with Fyrinnae's Velvet Vampire, which has more orange/red undertones, and I absolutely love it.  Details for the look below.  Enjoy!


For the look, here is what I used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion "Greed" - all over lids
Urban Decay Naked - blended into crease and up towards brow bone
Urban Decay Black Out - blended deep into crease/into Naked as well as in outer "V"
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - just on lid and lower lashline
Fyrinnae Velvet Vampire - blended into Black Out and in middle of lid
Younique Pigment in Sassy - blended into Velvet Vampire all the way to inner corner, lower lashline

Speaking of lashes - look at what these do for mine!  And, this is WITHOUT mascara!  I am in love.
