EOTD: Housewife Lobotomy
Eyeshadow - Comments (1) - October 26th, 2013

You can still get Halloween colors from Meow Cosmetics, so I wanted to feature another Hallowwen color. I used one of my favorite Shiro colors to go with it, since I like to use red with silver.

The lid color is Housewife, from Shiro Cosmetics. Housewife is a pale greige with a shimmery finish. It looks great paired with just about everything, but I especially like it with red colors. The crease color is Lobotomy, from the Asylum collection by Meow Cosmetics. Lobotomy is a brilliant flaming strawberry. It reads as warmer or cooler, depending on what you pair it with. It’s really pretty! The highlight color is Tears of Retail Employees, also from Shiro. I’m wearing a gray eyeliner pencil from Essence.

The blush is from Milani, it’s Corallina. I think it’s discontinued, which is too bad because it’s a great color. I wouldn’t mind trying some of the other blushes from Milani – they’re very easy to wear. The lip color is Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment.

EOTD: Flash Sedative
Eyeshadow, Hot Lips - Comments (2) - October 18th, 2013

It’s October, and that means Meow Cosmetics has Halloween stuffs available too! Yay! Wear ALL THE HALLOWEEN STUFFS!!! Today I wore a colors from the Asylum collection, as well as a Zombie color.

The lid color is Flash, from Silk Naturals. Flash isn’t a Halloween color, but it is a very shimmery complex gold color with a hint of silver and diamond pearl. The crease color is Sedative, the Asylum color. Sedative is a warm metallic silver. I have a sample of it, and while it’s really pretty, it’s not quite a must-have for me, so I won’t order a full size. It is really pretty, though. The highlight color is one I did love enough to order in full size: Skelecat, from the Halloween Zombies. Skelecat is a white color with gold and green iridescence. It’s one of my favorite highlight colors. The eyeliner is a brown color from Physician’s Formula’s Shimmer Strips Gel Liner. It’s pretty darned good for a drugstore (aka inexpensive) gel eyeliner set.

The blush is from Milani, a Baked Blush in the shade Corallina. It would appear the Corallina shade is discontinued – which is too bad, because it’s pretty great. I’m wearing a new Aveda Uruku Color Gloss, this time in the shade Berry.

EOTD: Spring Greens
Eyeshadow - Be the first to comment! - April 4th, 2013

Last month I picked up a new Wet N’ Wild palette which caught my eye. It’s a limited edition palette called Going In The Wild – you can see some great pics and swatches here. I really love these 8 pan Wet N’ Wild palettes, this is the third one I’ve bought… they’re so inexpensive!! I bought this one because I just looooove that mint green color – I’m such a sucker for it! The purples are pretty too, but it was the green that suckered me in. I decided to play with it today, and paired it with a favorite Linnaeus Cosmetics darker green.

The lid color is the mint green from the Going In The Wild palette. Used over Urban Decay Primer Potion, it actually has pretty good color payoff, in my opinion. The crease color is Vex, from Linnaeus Cosmetics. Vex is a shimmering green-turquoise, almost blue depending on the light. I really miss Linnaeus Cosmetics a lot. I really hope they come back again someday, so I can throw some more money at them. The highlight color is Buttercream Bliss, from Persephone Minerals. I used Milani Liquid Eye eyeliner in Aqua.

The blush is Poison, from Detrivore Cosmetics. The lipgloss is Sintillation Lipgelee from MAC.

EOTD: Theo Baleen
Eyeshadow - Comments (2) - October 6th, 2012

I felt like doing green the other day, and realized I haven’t used Detrivore Cosmetics’ lovely new green Baleen, so… voila! A look with Baleen!

Baleen is a really pretty shimmery emerald green color, which I used in the crease. I didn’t use a sticky base to really capture the sparkles, but they’re there. It’s limited edition, but still available. I highly recommend snatching it up! I used it with Black Rose Minerals’ Theo (of course) on the lid. The liner is Milani Liquid Eye Mechanical Eyeliner in green.

The blush is Detrivore’s Gallows, a deep pinkish red shade. I have it brushed on really lightly. The lipstick is Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Mademoiselle.

EOTD: Detrivore May Collection
Eyeshadow, Hot Lips - Comments (2) - August 8th, 2012

I feel so dumb. I took a picture of my face but forgot to take a picture of my eyes closed! Doh! BAD BEAUTY BLOGGER! But, it looked so nice, I didn’t want to waste it. I used four colors from Detrivore Cosmetics’ May LE collection, and it turned out so pretty.

First, I used Incantation on the lid. ERMAHGERD! SO PRETTY! This is a gold color with copper, pink, and gold shimmer. I about DIED when I put it on, it is that pretty. RUN AND BUY THIS COLOR RIGHT NOW. I put a dab of Mollusk in the inner corners. Mollusk is also GAAAAAH SOOOO PURRRTY. It’s a bright coral pink satin eye shadow loaded with shimmer. I used Lividity in the crease. And then my head exploded from all the awesome. Maybe that’s why I forgot to take eye pictures. My head was exploded. Anyway, Lividity is a dark pink shimmery eye shadow on a black base, and it is DA BOMB. I used Languid, a soft sheer silver satin color to highlight. Upper eyeliner is Milani’s Infinite Liquid Eyeliner in Endless (it’s a bold purple). I used more Lividity on the lower lashline.

The blush is also a new one from Detrivore. It’s Lilith, a light lilac purple blush with a tiny bit of silver shimmer. I love how soft and flattering this color is.

Today is a first! All the colors are Detrivore! The lipgloss is Lament, a rosy taupe color. It’s just the best My Lips But Better color and I love it. The formula is smooth, not too sticky, but not watery either. It’s pretty much awesome and I want to try the other colors now.

Detrivore is doing their 10 for $20 sale through 8/19, so now is a good time to grab your favorite colors. The Limited Edition colors aren’t part of the sale, but there are a ton of regular colors that are must haves. You can see more of my Detrivore looks here, or go visit Toxid Lotus or Prettymaking or Personellitea or Painted.

EOTD: She Juiced
Eyeshadow - Comments (2) - May 13th, 2012

The weather has been amazing in Portland this week, so I decided to do some fun “summer” kinds of things with my makeup. This was today’s effort, involving two of my favorite colors from Silk Naturals and an awesome hot pink.

The pale gold color is Juiced, from Silk Naturals. Juiced is a pale gold with suede pearl finish, and a fair amount of gold glimmer. I used a sticky base for maximum glimmer adhesion. Heat is a deep coppery orange tone with a silky pearl finish. I put Heat in the outer corners. The hot pink color is She Bop from Madd Style Cosmetics. She Bop is a bright, deep pink color with a silvery shimmer and aqua glitter. The highlight is Kingslayer from Geek Chic Cosmetics. The eyeliner on the upper lashline is Milani’s Infinite Liquid Liner in Forever. The lower lashline is a taupe eye pencil (it’s a discontinued color).

I mixed my Lush Colour Supplement with moisturizer today rather than my usual mineral foundation. I did brush on some mattifying powder on top though. The blush is Orchid Convertible Color from Stila – which they don’t seem to carry anymore. It’s a deep plum kind of color.

The lip gloss is Gloss Pur from Yves Saint Laurent and is 04 Pure Raspberry. I don’t wear it nearly enough, it’s a fun color for summer.

EOTD: Forsaken Peepshow
Eyeshadow - Comments (1) - March 16th, 2012

I ordered some My Pretty Zombie colors for my birthday. As always, they are so pretty! I love the colors from the Limited Edition Easter set, but I wasn’t sure I’d wear all of them – so I got Peepshow by itself instead. Together with Forsaken, this came out rather nicely blue.

My sister is excited because we now have enough severed fingers to have a hand’s worth sticking out of the top of a cake. Expect zombie cake pictures soon.

Peepshow is a marshmallow white color with piles of pastel glitter. Wear with a sticky base for best glitter adherence! Forsaken is a turquoise blue, amazingly sparkly and pretty. I used Unicorn Pee (of course I did!) to highlight. All of this glittery excellence was very cheerful on a grey and gloomy day! The eyeliner is from Milani, the Liquid Eye in aqua.

The blush is MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat. The lipgloss is Hibiscus from Morgana Cryptoria.

EOTD: Dolphins
Eyeshadow - Comments (3) - February 26th, 2012

Today’s eyeshadow comes from Luna’s weekly makeup challenge, and is Dolphin-themed. I personally think dolphins are pretty cool, what with being mammals and all and they’re smart. So, I’m happy to present Dolphin face!

I started by putting Crystalline from Detrivore Cosmetics in the inner corners. Crystalline is a light blue blend of mica and blue, silver, and violet shimmer. It’s so pretty, I only have a sample and I think I’m going to need to get a full-size. The outer corners are Restless, also from Detrivore. Restless is a light blue color. The crease is Gangrenous from My Pretty Zombie. Gangrenous is a dark lavender that shifts to a glossy green. It’s basically AWESOME! I love this color so much. The highlight is Nijiro from Fyrinnae. The eyeliner on the upper lashline is Milani Inifite Liquid Eyeliner in Infinite.

The blush is a discontinued color from L’Occitane. I’m wearing Bubblegum lipstick from MAC.

I’m pretty sure the upcoming week’s makeup challenge is glitter, so that’ll be fun!
