Urban Decay Products + Cute Find!

Published April 29, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Another purchase I’m just getting around to mentioning with all the craziness with school, finals, and projects *sigh* lol. There’s only two more days of classes on Mon. and Tue.! Then my first final exam on Thursday, another the following Mon., then a presentation Tue., then I’m free! Although I start two summer classes at the end of May, they are online so it’s not nearly as annoying and it only lasts a month. Only a couple classes, so I can still enjoy my summer! Anywhooo, on to the good stuff.

ย On Hautelook, about a month ago now. I orders the Book of Shadows IV($25) and Electric 24/7 travel set($9). I didn’t realize how long it takes for them to ship the items. It took about 3 weeks, so I was kinda bummed when I found out I could get them on the UD site for around the same price. Oh well, it was already done.

I like what’s included in here. The shadows are nice and pigmented. I’m sure there are swatches everywhere now since its old news lol. I can’t wait to try the 24/7 eyeliner! The mascara and primer potion are good as well. I like the little speaker it came with, it actually sounded clear when I attached my cell to play music. I wouldn’t pay the full price for this, especially since the packaging is unnecessarily large. At the sale price it seemed about right lol.

ย So these are the cutest things! If you read my about me you would know I love Hello Kitty lol, but I don’t go overboard lol. My mom was actually out and found these in T.J. Maxx and thought about me, because she knows how I feel about HK. It has mini HK’s on the top part on the frame with hearts and the rest of it is basic black.

I can’t remember if they were $7.99 or 12.99, but they were very reasonable. I’ve been wearing these on every sunny day lol. I’m definitely going to be enjoying them through the summer! I have other sunglasses as well, but I’ll have to see how often I reach for them. I should have put a pic in with me wearing them, maybe I’ll add it in later!

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Drugstore Haul!

Published April 28, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Hey guys, I don’t know whats going on, but I’ve been on a cosmetic rampage lol…Hauls left and right, well this one isn’t that major lol.

Starting at the top, I bought 4 more Revlon lip butters, moon drop lipstick, and colorburst lipstick. The Revlon colorstay liquid eye pen (felt tip) and Wet n’ Wild lipsticks, and palette in Petal Pushers, I was finally able to find it! The lipstick colors are described in order below.

This is the best photo I could take where the flash didn’t completely skew the colors.

(L TO R) Lip butters- Creamsicle (my least fav just because the color makes me look sick lol too pale), red velvet, creme brulee, and sweet tart. Moon drops lipstick in orange flip, and colorburst in baby pink. Wet n’ Wild (black) in putty persimmon, (silver) in 521A (more fuchsia purple) and 525D (medium pinkish purple). I love all these products, they go on really smooth and pigmented!

My First Inglot Purchase!

Published April 21, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

So I received my long awaited package from Inglot! I love the colors and people weren’t joking the AMC shine is highly glittery, but pretty. The DS is much better, but I love that matte. I will keep note for my next purchase. The only thing I’m disappointed about is that one of the shadows came slightly cracked and another shadow was missing. I’m guessing they didn’t have it because of IMATS. Oh well, I guess I will be eagerly awaiting it…it was a matte brown. Check out the full story below along with info on the palette!

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Julie G ‘s New Nail Polish Line! April 2012

Published April 18, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Ok, so these are the first 5 polishes I ordered out of 8 and there is 27 in the collection. I forgot to take a picture like this with the other three, but you’ll see them below. I lined up the polishes in the back accordingly. (From left to right) Dream in Pretty, Fierce and Fab, Passion, Gelato in Venice, and Shimmer Island. ย Below I show them with 1 coat with the bottle, then 2 coats, subsequently. I apologize in advance for some of the messy polish lol. I didn’t clean then up as I was only swatching ๐Ÿ™‚

This is Dream in Pretty with one coat! It is a creamy lilac with a boost. I was really impressed, it was pretty easy to work with and I think it’s my favorite out of the bunch!

This is with 2 coats! Looovee it!

Fierce and Fab was the polish I was most disappointed in. I know it was supposed to be a matte finish, but the color after it matted down was ehh, not my cup of tea. I would have loved the color of the polish in the bottle.; it’s a rich almost neon purple, very vibrant. I’m not sure, maybe I would like the color more with a glossy top coat.

Here it is with 2 coats. I have to say this was another polish that was easy to work with, so that’s a plus. It’s like a raspberry color when matted down.

This is Passion, a red/burgundy based purple. My third purple type of color. I don’t have many purple polishes because I don’t usually like the shades I find for my skin tone. I took a chance with 3 purple polishes, because I love Julie G! I’ve been watching her for at least a few years now. Again this color is very opaque with the first coat.

This is 2 coats and I really like this color! This polish was easy to work with as well.

I was really excited for Gelato in Venice! It’s goes along with the minty trend going on, although I’m not usually hot for trends. The 1 coat was fairly opaque, but you can see that the polish was kind of streaky :-/ So this one was not so easy to work with, but I still love the color and I will be more careful applying it.

With 2 coats I was able to even everything out. All I would have to to is clean up and I love the color pay off.

Shimmer Island would probably be best layered on top of something, but for the swatch I used it alone. So this is one coat, it’s a lime green and gold shimmer. I really like it.

With 2 coats I could pull of wearing it alone, but it in the sunlight the sheerness would show more.

Now on to the next three polishes. This one is 9 to 5, a baby peach color! Another one I was really excited for. It was a bit streaky, but not as much as Gelato in Venice.

With two coats everything was even out and I liked the color pay off. My finger look abnormally dark here, weird lighting I guess lol. Again I would clean it up and it would be good to go!

Now, this is Bikini, a hot pink/neon coral color; this is my second favorite after Dream in Pretty. This polish went on pretty well. At the top I messed up by not having enough polish no the brush, so that was human error lol

Came out nice and opaque with the second coat. I really love it!

The last one is called Kickin’ It. I liked the color of this polish. I don’t usually wear blue, because I want a light -medium blue. The shades I usually find look good in the bottle, but try to dark. Anywho this color is sheer with first coat with shimmers that look silver and a little bit green.

The 2nd coat looks really good and I like the color payoff! Its bright and fun, so I will definitely be wearing it this Spring and Summer!

Well, that’s all I purchased. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! ย You can purchase this polish at your local Rite-Aide or onย Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics, the distributor for her polishes!

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚
