Olive Smokey FOTD featuring CoverGirl's TruNaked Pallet in Goldens

9:10 AM

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

9:38 AM

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

9:00 AM

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?

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

4:02 PM

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!
