Tutorial: Glittering December

    Today I went to MUFE to spend my gift card I won from the Within Temptation contest.
    Here's my haul:

    I did a super glitttery look using two of my new babies (I'll do a review of these later):
    Diamond Powder 015
    Glitters #10
    This is so simple to do.
    Start with priming your eye:

    Then use black base, I used MAC Slick Black Greasepaint stick. The base should be a bit sticky, so that the glitter won't fall off:

    Then apply the glitter (you can use for example Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy, or some mixing medium to attach the glitter, if you're afraid it'll fall off) :

    Add some highlighter to the brow bone, false lashes (mine are MAC #44 ) and I also added some silver liner (MUFE Aqua Eyes 8L) to the lower inner corner and waterline:


    And to really boost the look and to add even more shine, I added a hint of MUFE Diamond Powder #015 over the black glitter:

Black Friday sales!

Chaotic Neutral


    I've been quite "boring" with my looks lately...

    I received these to palettes full of MakeupGeek's eyeshadows (they should arrive to MUG store in few weeks or so):

    I then arranged them to colorful and neutral, and I'e been using the neutrals quite a lot!
    They are highly pigmented, and I adore the colors <3
    I'll make a better post about them, once they are officially released.

    But here's few of my latest looks with them:

     (I used colors called Taupe Notch and Bada Bing)

    Cinderella and Sensuous

    Moondust, Shimmy Shimmy and Corrupt

    And non-makeup related news:

    I got my first Monster High beauty!
    Isn't she gorgeous:

    And if I'm silent, it's because of this:
    16 hours behind, haven't really even scratched the surface. <3

Review: Lime Crime Styletto & Glamour 101

    It's been a while since my previous Lime Crime review, back then I also reviewed their lipsticks, Styletto and No She Didn't. Even though I'm still aware of all the gossip and drama around this brand, I base my review on the products, not the brand.

    I was again contacted by them, and this time I got 2 pieces from their latest collection called Lip Noir. 
    Unfortunately one of them was Styletto, which I already had. The other was Glamour 101, which was a new one. I would have loved to try the gray one called Chinchilla, but I've heard that they have some troubles to get it stocked or something. Oh well.

    In my previous LimeCrime review I was impressed of their shipping box. This time my lipsticks came in a normal brown cardboard box. I don't know if they still use the custom boxes when you order something from them and I don't say that there's anything wrong with normal brown boxes, I just wanted to mention that, because I was secretly waiting for a cute box :D

    Anyway, the lipsticks haven't changed from the outside.
    Still the same pink boxes with unicorns:

    And pink tubes with holographic unicorns:
    (I haven't been able to view them the same way after a friend of mine noticed these tubes on my table, and asked me why I'm  storing my VIBRATORS on my table.)

    So the lipsticks.

    Glamour 101:
    Ok, first of all, it's red.
    World is full of red lipsticks, what makes Glamour 101 so special?

    Nothing really. But on the other hand, who said it should be special? I guess LimeCrime just wanted to add red lipstick to their line.

    Since the collection is called "Lip Noir", which refers to "old times". This isn't anything wild or crazy, this is quite classic, elegant red. I wouldn't call it pinup red, but I could call it vintage red.

    This is more darker and brown than any of my previous red lipsticks:
    Loreal Infallible Beyonce, OCC NSFW, Illamasqua Faust & Sangers, Palladio Cosmopolitan, BeautyUK Vampire and LimeCrime Glamour 101
    It stays well, it's not dry and it doesn't stain lips.
    Again, for me it works very well, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. :D

    And as you can see, it also looks good on lips:

    Interesting enough, it looks totally different depending on the lipliner you use it with:

    On the left there's NYX Cabaret as a liner, on the right NYX Deep Red.



    I know I have reviewed this earlier, and my opinions haven't changed.
    It's still opaque, it still stains dry parts of your lips, it may feather a bit if you don't use liner.
    It still works bloody well on my looks when I need to have black lips.

    I really wanted to include Styletto in this review because I got a new swatch pic of it:

    That's all folks!


Review: Incoco non-liquid nail polish

    I was contacted by Incoco, they asked if I wanted to try and review their products.
    I know my blog isn't really a nail / nail polish blog, but I paint and decorate my nails almost daily, so I said yes.

    Incoco tells the following about The Nail Polish Strips:

    Say goodbye to liquid nail polish – no more drying time, smudges, or streaks! Incoco nail polish strips provide a perfect manicure in minutes. The strips are made of real nail polish, and each strip includes base, color, and top coats. Apply Incoco anywhere, any time!

    So these aren't stickers, or minx (or what ever), these are nail polish strips, which don't contain Formaldehyde, DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate) Or Toluene.

    So, first there's all kinds of stuff in the package:
    There's 16 double-ended color strips and instructions (duh!),  nail polish removal cloth, nail file, cuticle stick, and some other stuff I couldn't figure out.

    Here's how it actually works:
    (Picture from Incoco website)
    I have small nails, so I have pretty much of the excess "polish" to file off:

    I actually do the same I do with "sticker nails", I cut the strip to half and use the other half to other hand.

    But once all the choosing, shaping, applying and filing is over, the result is really neat:

    At first I had some trouble applying the strip to place and with pulling the excess part off, so the result wasn't as neat as it could be:

    Oscar Night
    But once I learned the technique, it went much better:
    Disco Queen
    I really, really like Disco Queen!
    I think it feels like a nail polish, but looks way cooler than normal polish.

    Personally I'm not such a big fan of these, I don't find applying nail polish too hard or time-consuming or anything, I kinda like it actually :D
    I guess that's why I don't really get the point of getting normal nail polish in this form. I can surely understand these "wilder" ones, which you can't achieve normally, as these are an easy way to get awesome looking nails for parties or other events.
    Luckily, Incoco offers somewhere around 50 different designs only in their Design Manicure series, and dozens of more in French Manicures and Color Manicures.
    Price of the strips is from $5.99 to $10.99, depending of the design.
