FOTD w/ It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream, and Fyrinnae Bonfire Spirits & Velvet Vampire



I wanted to post a quick EOTD/FOTD using some Fyrinnae that have been buried in my makeup drawers before I did my in depth look at the It Cosmetics "Your Skin But Better" CC Cream.  A full face is below, but for the eyes I used Bare Escentuals Big and Bright Eyeliner in Black, and drew the corner and crease.  Blending on top of the black, I used Fyrinnae Bonfire Spirits in the middle of the lid and blended it ontop of the black.  Closer to the inner corner and outer corner of the lower lashline, I blended Fyrinnae Velvet Vampire, which is a bit pinkier than the Bonfire Spirits.  I then took Fyrinnae Dinosaur Plushie on the inner corner and drew it down the lower lashline as well.  The highlight is MAC Vanilla pigment. 


I will do a detail on my face in a later post, when I look at the IT Cosmetics as well.

Happy St. Patrick's Day EOTD using Aromaleigh Spectacularly Ignorant, Regifted, Fyrinnae Dark Fantasy, and Make Up Forever Aqua Liner in


A day late on posting my St. Patrick's Day EOTD, featuring Aromaleigh and Fyrinnae, but better late than never!  I have absolutely fallen in love with Spectacularly Ignorant from Aromaleigh.  This gorgeous evergreen with gold sparks really blends well with a lot of other colors I have in my collection, so I tend to reach for it a lot.  I blended it into Dark Fantasy from the Fyrinnae Archane Magic collection to create a deep smokey eye for St. Patty's.  

Hopefully everyone had a great day yesterday!  Anyone find that pot of gold we've all been looking for? :)  




Here's how I put this look together:

Laura Geller Eye Spackle - all over lid and up to browbone
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - on lid and lower lashline
Fyrinnae Dark Fantasy - outer corner blended up into crease
Aromaleigh Spectacularly Ignorant - middle of lid, lower lashline, blended into crease
Aromaleigh Regifted - inner corner and slightly in the lower lasline.
Milani Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Make Up Forever Aqua Liner in 1 - the gold one
Mally Beauty Mascara - Black

Bright Green Smokey EOTD / FOTD with Rimmel "Green Sapphire", Wet 'n Wild "Blue Had Me at Hello" and Maybelline "Mythical Mermaid"



Playing off of yesterday's post of bright pink, today features Maybelline's "Mythical Mermaid" Eyestudio Pallet in a bright neon green smokey eye.  The bright yellow/green in this pallet has some iridescent shimmer, but isn't a chrome, so works well with the matte black on the Wet 'n Wild "Blue had Me at Hello" pallet to create the smokey eye.  Where the black and yellow/green meet, I blended the olive shade from the Rimmel Green Sapphire pallet, as well as placed this along the lower lashline on top of black, blended into the yellow/green from the Maybelline set.  I used a matte ivory from an old Hard Candy pallet on the brow bone.  

I actually had some patience this morning, so I really like how this turned out.    I need to take my time more often!  Full details on the FOTD below.

FOTD: Bright Pink & Springy w/ Fyrinnae Chaotic Evil and Sake & Sashimi


Yesterday, it was 67 degrees here....today, snow with a low of 9.  I am so incredibly ready for spring, so I decided to play around with some bright pinks to brighten the mood.  Fyrinnae Chaotic Evil is a neon pink frost that I received a sample of a couple of months ago, but haven't had time to try out until now.  What an absolutely fun and bright color!  I paired that with Sake & Sashimi in my crease, and really like how the colors blended together.

Spotted at CVS: NYX Cosmetics Permanent Display


NYX permanent displays have been popping up at CVS, and the two by me finally have theirs.  This display has a majority of the base items, including eyeliners (the black gel is my favorite go-to eyeliner), blushes, primers, lipsticks, and lip glosses.  I am a huge fan of NYX, so knowing I can pick up some of my staples right in town is fantastic!  

I have been tempted by some of the lip butters and lip sticks on this display, so next time I have some Extra Care Bucks, I think those are going to be on the list of things to buy!

Spotted at CVS: Revlon Candy Vibes 3D Jewel Appliques for Nails


Nail Appliques are becoming the "it" thing, and Revlon has another set (which apparently is for Valentines?) that I found at my local CVS last week called Candy Vibes.  A collection of confectionery inspired nail appliques, there are some vine designs to choose from.  My favorite would be the gumballs and the gum drop themes.  Closeups below - really cute and fun for spring/summer!  

You can click on any of the images below to get closeups - for some reason they are posting upside down, and because of Day Light Savings...my brain isn't working fast enough to figure out how to switch them! :)







Spotted at Walgreens: Scrunci U Dazzle Non-Permanent Hair Color


Looking to add a pop of color to your hair, but don't want to commit to a permanent shade?  Enter Scrunci U Dazzle hair colors.  With four shades to choose from: magenta, pink, blue and turquoise, you can color your locks to your hearts content, and it will wash out with your shower!  Retails for $4.99 at Walgreens, although I'm sure you can find it in other drugstores.  

Closeup of the colors below - have you tried these yet?
