Barbie Eyes:::Too Hot to Hate Me!

This was a fun and flirty look that I decided to create that one could wear to a party or fun event. After I created it, someone said it looked like a nice Barbie look .... I used all Supergirlushes Pigments for this look (Heaven [pearlized white], Hot to Handle [hot pink], and Hate Me [lavender with silver reflects]). Hope you enjoy!!!!

Check out the video tutorial! (Too Hot To Hate Me (Barbie Eyes)

Here are the pics of the final look!

Wet 'n Wild Palette: Lust Tutorial **requested**

So, this look was done awhile ago per a request I received from darknluvly702 (from YT). Here is my interpretation of lust. Remember that lust is pleasure, delight, an intense longing, craving, eagerness, etc. So that's what I kept in mind when creating this look and I think it turned out pretty over hot and over the top!! Let me know what you think :)

Make sure and click on the video to see how I did it: Lust Tutorial!!!

Supergirlushes Swatches **requested**

Hey Ladies & Gents,

Here are some in-depth pictures of some swatches of the Supergirlushes pigments that I own. There are over 70+ colors and shades to choose from, so make sure and check out the website for more (http://www.supergirlushesmineralmakeup.com)! I'll be getting some more next month, and will be sure to swatch those too. Thank you to Jazy (my lovely YT sis) for requesting this. 

Hope this is helpful to anyone who would like to know how they look on a darker skintone. One thing that is unique about these shadows is their beautiful reflects and ability to change color when used with different bases.

Note: These are all swatched without a base and without a primer, and they are still super pigmented! Enjoy!!!

I only own approximately 14, and here is how they look!

Fall Neutrals::: Mona Lisa GLAM: Go from Day to Night!

Mona Lisa Glam: Go from Day to Night!

Here is another neutral look that I did recently. This is the glammed up version I'd say. What's so unique about this look is that you can switch it from "wear to work, 9-5, casual" to a "glammed up, after hours, party" look. For this look, I used all Supergirlushes Mineral Makeup. They have such a beautiful collection of shadows which you can check out at http://www.supergirlushesmineralmakeup.com. Here is a listed of the pigments and tools I used for this particular eyeshadow look:

Pigments Used:
Mona Lisa on Mobile Eyelid
Chocolate Truffle on Crease
Delia's Tan on Crease as well
Light Brown from Wet n Wild Vanity Palette
Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black
Elf Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Silver/Red Glitter eyeliner by Santee

Cheeks
Wet n Wild Blush in Heather Silk
Avon Bronzer in Medium-Deep "Be Sunny"

Lips
Wet 'n Wild Lipstick (black tube) in Raivin Raisin
NYX Lipliner in Prune
NYC Lipgloss in Sheer Raspberry

Here's how we transform from day to night!
You can simply transform this look by adding a bit of glitter or glitter eyeliner onto your lid, and pulling your hair up into an updo and adding a pair of elegant earrings!

Fall Neutrals::: Precious Autumn Leaves

Hey Ladies & Gents!

In case you missed my last two fall neutral videos, here's a quick recap!

The first one was a very soft and traditional neutral look. I used my LA Colors "Precious" Palette, hence the title "Precious Autumn Leaves". I used the orange color on my mobile eyelid and then applied the brown from the palette to my crease area and topped it off with the champagne color to my highlight. Here are the items I used and make sure and click the link to the video tutorial :)

All you need is this LA Colors Palette "Precious"
...and some Elf Eyeshadow Brushes
NYC Lip Gloss (my new fave) - Sheer Raspberry
NYX Lip liner in Prune
Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black
Elf Black Liquid Eyeliner
Any coral blush

Here are some pictures from the look:

REVIEW: Sappho Cosmetics

Hey Ladies & Gents!

As you all know, I'm always looking for new products to try and looking to learn more about formulations of products. Most importantly, I want to make sure that I know what I'm putting on my face. I was stumbling through the internet when I found a company called Sappho Cosmetics. Sappho Cosmetics a new green, eco-conscious, and organic makeup based line. Their products are free of synthetic chemicals and are infused with antioxidants and certain beneficial oils such as jojoba oil and frankincense. Oh, and let's not forget one important thing..their packaging is all recyclable! How cool is that?

Now on to the review...I was sent two loose eyeshadows, one shimmer and one matte. Love Lavender is a deep purple/lavender while Brilliance is a sheer ivory color which is perfect as a highlighter! They also sent me a liquid mineral foundation in Creme Caramel. Creme Caramel was a bit too light for me but I made it work! Here are a few pictures of the product (boxed and unboxed):

Love Lavender MatterEyeshadow (top) & Brilliance Shimmer Eyeshadow (bottom); Liquid Mineral Foundation in Creme Caramel

All products in boxes. The packaging is recyclable!
The shadows are a bit pricey and retail for about $25, and the eyeshadow is also on the high end side. The liquid mineral foundation retails for about $45. You all know that I'm a bargain shopper and normally don't buy high end products but I was delighted that I got to review these products because I can tell that they were carefully crafted. The foundation is preserved with organic oils and is filled with antioxidants. It also has a strong frankincense scent to it. The foundation felt very good to the face and would be perfect to use if one had sensitive skin. It is also very light and has buildable coverage. The only thing I wish it had was a pump for the price! The Love Lavender eyeshadow was sooo pretty but I had to built up color to get the intense look that I like. The Brilliance eyeshadow was the perfect highlighter and helped me blend everything in.

You can view my YouTube video where I give an in-depth review on all of the products. The link can be found here: REVIEW: Sappho Cosmetics

Here are a few pictures of me wearing Sappho Cosmetics...Enjoy!
