EOTD: Maleficent Pixie
Eyeshadow - Comments Off - December 1st, 2011


Today seemed like a purple kind of day, so I’m wearing Pixie from Madd Style Cosmetics and My Dark Magic from MAC. My Dark Magic is from the Venemous Villains collection, and I really really love Maleficent, so I had to get it.

Pixie is a pale purple with gold sparkles. My Dark Magic is a blackened purple with a frosty finish and a violet-tinged blue with a navy-black base. It has Maleficent on the packaging, and I think she’s one of the coolest Disney villains, so I ended up buying this shadow plus two lip glosses and the beauty powder from the collection when it came out last year.

The blush is the Briar Rose Beauty Powder, also from the Maleficent collection. It’s such a pretty pink color. I’m wearing the Black Cherry Hurraw! lip balm I reviewed the other day. It’s a little darker IRL, the flash washes it out a little.

EOTD: Theo Tank
Eyeshadow - Comments (4) - November 2nd, 2011

Today I was planning on meeting my husband and his mom for lunch, so I decided something a little more subtle was called for. I used my beloved Theo from Black Rose Minerals and Tank Girl from Madd Style Cosmetics. Subtle, but still fun with all that green going on.

Theo, besides being the BEST COLOR EVER, is a light fawn with a green duochrome and green sparkles. Tank Girl is army green with hot pink and kelly green glitter. I didn’t use a sticky base, so the glitter is less apparent – you can still see it though, I used the slightly out of focus shot to make it show up in the picture. I used Detrivore’s Lobotomy to highlight.

I have Morgana Cryptoria Fallen Leaves Lipgloss on my lips. Love this color! I got compliments on the lipgloss today.

As a bonus today, here’s a shot of Theo being really cute.

EOTD: Poseidon & Pisces
Eyeshadow, Hot Lips - Comments Off - September 18th, 2011

I felt like doing something blue today, so I pulled out a lovely color from Black Rose Minerals, Poseidon. I used Pisces from Madd Style Cosmetics for the gold duochrome, because I really like blue and gold together.

Poseidon is a teal base with a high shimmer finish and turquoise glitter. Pisces is a light aquamarine with a warm gold duochrome filled with lots of gold and silver holographic glitter. They work really nicely together, since both formulas are really blendable and smooth. I used Glass Slipper from Bokeh Face to highlight.

I’m wearing a Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Very Happy Berry. I heard a rumour that the Lip Lustres might come back. That would be very exciting!!

EOTD: Seedless Anthrax
Eyeshadow, Hot Lips - Comments (2) - July 23rd, 2011

Today’s eyeshadow is all about cool duochromes. I’m wearing Seedless from Madd Style Cosmetics and Anthrax from My Pretty Zombie, and it’s all green duchrome up the wazoo. Love it!

Seedless is an awesome pink with green duochrome. I haven’t really found anything else quite like it, so it’s pretty much a must-have color. Anthrax, the third color from Husbandry Afflictions is purple to green with a gold to red shift. It’s AWESOME!!

The lips are a new product from Morgana Cryptoria: Lip Balms! This color is Hibiscus, a pale pink with a silvery-green sheen. Oooh I love it!

I have two more lip balms to show you. Expect to see them soon!

EOTD: Seedless Pink
Etsy, Eyeshadow - Comments (1) - June 15th, 2011

I recently purchased more eyeshadows from Madd Style Cosmetics, in a 5 for $20 deal with an additional discount code. Score! One of the colors I got was an awesome pink with green duochrome called Seedless. I paired it with My Pretty Zombie’s mNg No. 2 for a very pink look. I love pink!

I’m really impressed with how Madd Style Cosmetics has evolved in the last few months. The new labels on the jars are really cute, the bottom labels are now printed instead of handwritten, and my last order included an invoice.

Seedless is exactly the pink with green duochrome that I’ve been looking for, and it goes perfectly with mNg No. 2. I love how these colors look – very bright, but not too crazy. The camera really can’t capture how the colors change and how interesting the duochromes are.

Who makes your favorite pink eyeshadow?

EOTD: Marooned
Eyeshadow - Comments Off - June 12th, 2011

I love Morgana Cryptoria’s Marooned eyeshadow. It’s discontinued, but still available last time I looked. It’s a great maroon color with sparkly bits. I paired it with Madd Style Cosmetics’ Pixie (purple with gold sparkles) and Evil Shades’ White Witch.

All of these colors are quite sparkly, so Pixie Epoxy (which may or may not be in stock…) is a definite must for making them stay in place and not fall all over your face.

Cheeks are Bokeh Face Lotus Blush. Lips are MAC Lipglass from the Wonder Woman collection.

I really love purple eyeshadows. What is your favorite purple?

EOTD: Poseidon & Pisces
Etsy, Eyeshadow - Comments (2) - May 20th, 2011

It totally didn’t occur to me until just now that the names of these shadows are both sea-related… DOH! Anyway, This is a fun greenish-blue-gold look I did with Poseidon from Black Rose Minerals and Pisces from Madd Style Cosmetics. I love blues and greens!

Poseidon is a bright teal color with a lot of shimmer. Pisces is a light aquamarine with a warm gold duo chrome and a lot of glitter. I was surprised how gold it looked on my skin, with very little of the aquamarine. I think if I used it with Pixie Epoxy I’d get more of the blue. But it didn’t bother me since I really like how the gold looks with the blue of Poseidon.

I like both these colors enough that I have them in full sizes. Both have great color payoff. I think I’ll have to try this look again with the PE to make the shimmers stick better, but this was a work day so it was all good with low shimmer.

The bronzer I’m wearing turned orange in the pictures, but I don’t look that orange IRL, lol.

EOTD & Purple Lips
Eyeshadow, Hot Lips, Makeup Fun - Comments (5) - April 4th, 2011

I was “chatting” on Twitter last night with Jasmine, and she asked to see Fyrinnae’s Fanservice Lip Luster in action. I picked today’s eyeshadow pretty much to go with the purple lips. I put it on pretty heavily for the picture, but I really don’t wear it that opaque outside the house because I think it looks a little too zombie lips for me. I might scare small children. I DO, however, wear it lightly applied over lip balm and it’s tons of fun. It’s kind of like baby pink, only it’s purple.

The eyes are Madd Style Cosmetics Pixie and Linnaeus Cosmetics Show Off. I used Pixie Epoxy to make the sparkles in Pixie really stick on. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love purple!

The cheeks are Bokeh Face Lotus Blush, which I’m practically wearing every day because I love it so much!
