So yes…. Technically, yesterday was Tuesday. Mosaic class was switch-a-rooed, but I had fun coming up with another free form design… And I think I’ll be working on it later on (technically) today. It’s going to be pretty fun- mirrored pieces, iridescence, fun colors! Anywho- you’ll be proud of me. I totally took pictures of my look today- since a) they’re my first mineral matte shadows and b) they’re my new e.l.f. Mineral shadows. That’s right- I got my package on Monday! And (technically!) yesterday I got my package from Cherry Culture- I bought some Nyx while they were on sale over there, and before the “Anniversary Fail” Sale.
Anywho- I wanted to dig in to my matte shadows. I wanted smoky, sexy, spring-ish. In total- I was able to nab the 10 free mineral eye shadows from e.l.f. that were offered on sale until May 23rd. In order to do that, I had to order a certain (reasonable) amount of makeup… So I bought three of their new Matte Lipcolors, five of their new gel eyeliners, a stippling brush, and… I don’t remember. I can’t remember if there was something else. Huh. LOL It’s late, my brain is fried! And yes, we were in my sister’s car, driving with the windows down for the first time this season because it was finally not raining today- and the big yellow thing in the sky came out to say hello! It was amazing!!! Hence, the crazzzzzy hair!
On my face:
Arran Aromatics Moisturizing Cream
e.l.f. Highlighter/Concealer Wand
e.l.f. Complexion Perfection
Too Faced Illuminating Foundation Wand in London Fair
Meow Cosmetics Purr-fect Puss Foundation in Siamese Inquisitive
Physicians Formula Illuminating Blush in Vintage Rose
On my Eyes:
e.l.f. Mineral Eye Shadows:
Temptress- Mauve on lid only
Innocent- Natural Highlighter, from crease to brow bone
Seductive- Black in crease, blended out to a soft wash
Physicians Formula Felt-Tip Eye Marker Pen in Ultrablack
Wet ‘N Wild Coloricon Kohl Eyeliner in Black
WnW MegaPlump Mascara in Black
Random Mauve lip liner
e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose
And that’s my look. Was my look. Oh yes… You noticed the sparkle…. Well, I just couldn’t pass up the temptation of adding a little glitter to my eyes. The last package of Nyx products I’ll purchase for a loooong while arrived yesterday. I totally got Candy Glitter Eyeliner in Hot Candy. I applied it to just the outer corner of my eyes, for some pizzazz!
I’m off to wash up now, and get to bed! I’m tired… And I have another cool look planned for tomorrow in my head… And I’m sure you want to see! The only thing I’m not crazy about with the e.l.f. mineral shadows is the fact they do contain Bismuth Oxychloride. Now, because it’s only going on my eyes- it’s not that big a deal. However, if it were foundation… That’s a deal breaker. So if you have sensitive skin- beware! It’s not done anything to me- and I’m pretty pleased at the quality of the shadows. Review on products upcoming!
Would you wear this trio of shadows? How bout the glitter?
