The other day I received the brand new Sugarpill Heart Breaker palette in the mail and I was horribly, explosively EXCITED! The palette features 4 amazing new colours which are:
- Acidberry – An INSANELY bright matte lime green.
- Velocity – Bright blue, a matte pressed version of Sugarpill Royal Sugar.
- Mochi – A beautiful vibrant matte turquoise shade.
- 2AM – Bright purple-pink, lighter than Poison Plum from Sugarpill with a magenta base.
What I love about the pressed shadows from Sugarpill, is that the colours are completely matte (apart from Afterparty and Midori, which feature a slight shimmer) and I’m an absolute sucker for matte eyeshadows! In my opinion, this is one of the best palettes that Sugarpill have ever put together and I actually had no idea that lime green and purple looked so awesome together haha!
So without further ado, this is the look that I have done today! I wanted to play around with all of the colours in the palette so this is what I came up with, a fun, bright, dramatic look with CRAZY Sugarpill lashes that personally, I would wear any time of day. Wearable… whats that again?
Don’t forget to read more if you would like to see more pictures, the original video and a list of products for this look! Also, I am so sorry that the quality of the pictures isn’t brilliant. My digital camera decided to run out of battery just as I wanted to use it. Typical! Anyway, I hope you like it!
Today I was brainstorming with Karl (the other half, who is fully supportive of my makeup obsession!) and I decided to do a mini-series of mock entries to my own candy inspired contest, which you should definitely check out here to win some awesome prizes! This is the first look that I decided to do, which is inspired by the cute, fizzy Haribo strawbs! I’m not a huge fan of using red on my eyes, so I thought I could unlock this look’s full potential by doing a sparkling emerald eye with ruby red lips. I hope you like this look, and don’t forget to check out the video, more photos and a list of products below!
This is going to be the first of my ‘Face of the Day’ posts, which I usually post on twitter. However, I figured it would be much easier to do it this way, so I can include the list of products I used to go with it. I understand that most days I do very simple looks, with really not much to them because I get up at the crack of dawn for work and it just seems like too much effort to slap a decent amount of makeup on my face!
I’m afraid today has been one of those days. I realise that my first FOTD post should have been more exciting but I really wanted to get started! It wasn’t actually my choice to go for a completely bare eye today. I was in so much of a rush that I didn’t have time for even ONE layer of mascara! Instead, I decided to focus on my lips, and used a lovely sheer, shimmery red from Avon. I shall post a picture and a complete list of all products used below…
There has been alot of hype regarding the Colour Sensational ‘Popsticks’ from Maybelline, and quite a number of people have asked me to get hold of one of them to review, so that’s what I did! My mind was instantly drawn to shade 030, which is also named Pink Lollipop. I nearly died when I saw this in the shop. You know when you see a product then spend ages thinking about it so you HAVE to go back and buy it? Well, that’s what happened to me! It made a HUGE impact on me when I first saw it, because anything pink with a blue/purple shimmer is a must have for me. As a result of this, I decided to pay the £7.19 for it, just because I really wanted to try it. It turned out I had fallen for yet another gimmicky product… Read the rest of this entry »
