FOTD GDE LOOK #2

So I have another look for you today, I really wanted to use some of the more unique colours in my collection, and as I never use greens, I figured. Hey why not?? Not only that, but I wanted to use 2 of the shades from the Anti-Vday collection.

I used Fallen Angel and is described as a pale peach with an orange sheen, orange sparkle and a darkened grey undertone. They show up best when you pat them over your primer/base rather than swiping. I found this colour to be more yellow/gold ten peach to be honest. Its still a super pretty colour just not what it is described as.

Next I used Side Boob and is described as a swampy green with an orange sheen and a holographic pink sparkle. I found this colour to be a more forest green with a hint of mint in it. There is sparkle but I didn’t really see any orange sheen when I blended it out on my lids.

I have attached some pictures of the shades right here.

FOTD!! GDE look

So today is another work day! And I have decided that on the days that I actually have/want to do makeup on my face that I might as well take some picture!! This way I’ll actually get in some blogging time while getting ready for work LOL!! I mean why not right? Might as well do something that I love while getting ready to do something I love!! So for this look I decided to use GDE not to be truffled with which was the FEB OTM, that I know I said I was going to post about but life just got in the way.

So list of products I used in order to achieve this look

Not to be Truffled with (FEB OTM LE) in the crease and on the lower half of the lash line

Pinch of Pixie used dry on the lid and then You’re Welcome used with glitter fix, and then pinch of pixie again over the top of you’re welcome

Flawless as a highlight

Start a Rumor as a blush

And dandelion highlighter as a highlight on the face.

Also used for foundation was as always Elizabeth Arden Cream Ceremide makeup in Vanilla Shell

Anastasia brow wiz in Dark Brown

Black gel liner by Maybeline

Lashes are Smashbox full exposure mascara in Jet Black

This look was really fun to create. Usually at the end of the year Vee sometimes opens up being able to get the previous OTM’s if you didn’t snag one before. I literally lucked right out and managed to snag a 12 month slot!!

It’s an everyday kinda look kind of day…..

So here I have for you an everyday kind of look. Now my all time favorite colour happens to be URBAN DECAY Tease, its out of the naked 2 palette but you can also get it as a single. I use it almost every single day as a blending/crease colour. I find it is the perfect matte taupe colour that just suits my skin tone amazingly. That being said the only other shadows that I really use are the Glamour Doll Eyes eye shadows and lately I have been really really loving You’re Welcome, Prankster and pinch of pixie. They are just the perfect shimmery glittery shadows that suit my every day look. Down below I have inserted a look with Tease, You’re Welcome and GDE flawless as a highlight. Pair You’re Welcome with GDE Glitter fix and along with some very black lashes and a pretty cat eye liner is pretty much all I wear to work almost everyday. My foundation is Elizabeth Arden cream cereimide makeup in Vanilla Shell and you have my every day look. I might do blush but most of the time I don’t!

OITNB Anti Valentines day collection

So I managed to snag all of the shadows for the anti valentines day collection from glamour doll eyes, the pigments that is. This collection will be restocked and I will be looking at getting the 2 cream shadows because well its glamour doll eyes and they are just like pokemon which means you gotta catch them all right??? Now a good chunk of these shadows sold out in seconds but I managed to get my hands on all of the loose pigments and the highlighter (1 pigment and highlighter I managed to snag during the restock).

Now what Vee said is that she will continue to restock these until she until the labels run out, which makes me super excited because that means that I might be able to snag the 2 cream shadows that I really want to try. I will also be posting the OTMs that I receive at the time that I get them, that being said I live in Canada so I get them a week to 2 weeks after everyone else gets theirs…. Stupid customs.

Down below I have attached some pictures of the colours that I actually have (all of the pigments plus the highlighter) I won’t be doing swatches though as for the next week I will be playing around with these and coming up with different looks!!

Alright so in that first picture, we have the full collection that I have in present (minus liners, blush and 2 cream shadows) The highlighter is featured at the bottom 🙂

Third Picture is Hall Monitor and it is described as a sky blue with a coppery red sheen and a green to gold sparkle. This color is inspired by Bennett.

Hall Monitor

Fourth Picture is Fallen Angel and is described as a pale peach with an orange sheen, orange sparkle and a darkened grey undertone. This color is inspired by Pennsatucky. The sparkle particles in this color are a bit bigger than our normal sparkles. They show up best when you pat them over your primer/base rather than swiping.

Fallen Angel

Fourth Picture is Lesbian Request Denied and is described as a dark gray base with a pink sheen, shimmer and shine. This color is inspired by Healy. 100% of the proceeds from this particular shade will be donated to the NOH8 Campaign. The NOH8 Campaign is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest. Each eye shadow purchase will make a small difference!

Fourth Picture is Pornstache and is described as dark brown base with a blue to silver sheen and a subtle red and copper shimmer. This color is inspired by Pornstache.

And last but not least and not actually a part of this **collection** per say is Expecting Trouble. Now this was the February gift with purchase and the only way you could it is if you spent $10 US not including shipping. This beautiful shade is described as a dark brown base with a dirty lavender overlay, blue to purple duochrome shift and lots of blue & purple sparkles.

NUDE SKINCARE haul, compare and review. AND Benefit Roller Lash review.

So I went into Winnipeg the other day with a friend of mine Polish Jinx, and we happened to hit up Sephora. Now she happens to be a Rouge for Sephora while little ol me is still just a beauty insider. So she managed to hook us up with some free makeovers…. Now my makeover while the artist did a great job on my eyes, my foundation was all wrong and started to oxidize and made me look like an oompa loompa within the hour and it was super itchy and burned. Now on to the good stuff!!!

While in Winnipeg I had a wee bit of a shopping list, I needed to replenish my skin care stuffs, so when I went into sephora the first thing i grabbed was the NUDE SKINCARE set which retails for around 110 dollars. It looks like this.

IMG_1841 IMG_1838

Now keep in mind that I have extremely dry sensitive skin, so finding any kind of skincare that doesn’t turn me into a tomato is a really good thing. The first nude set that I bought last year (that still has some of the wash and oil left) is pictured right here.

IMG_1851Now to compare the 2. In the first set I received the full sized oil face wash, half sized cellular renewal moisturizer, and pro omega oil, and as a gift from Sephora a serum from the same line. In the set that I just bought I received a FULL SIZED moisturizer ($110 already) half sized omega oil and HALF SIZED serum. So already I’m getting WAY WAY WAY WAY MORE then I paid for!!!

IMG_1858 IMG_1848 IMG_1846 IMG_1843

Now for the review. This stuff is amazing. It doesn’t make me break out, doesn’t bother my super sensitive skin, smells great I love love love it and will ever go without. Ever.

BENEFIT ROLLER LASH!!!

I have been wanting this the second I found out about it off of YOUTUBE. It claims that it will curl your lashes for you. Now I have only tried this ONCE. So I don’t really have a full opinion of it yet. But first impressions, the wand is super unique. The little wand has hooks on it that grip your lashes to give it a good amount of curl. No curler needed. The formula of the acual mascara is wetter then I like. And in my opinion is a pain in the ass to take off. Again I have only used this once so I need to use it a bit more to get a better opinion of it.

IMG_1864 IMG_1866IMG_1867

There are a few other things that I grabbed at Sehora also, a brow whiz pencil in dark brown and the light blue GLAMGLOW (that will be reviewed soon when I use it a couple more times)

Hope you enjoyed this post!! Sorry I haven’t been posting much just so super busy!!!

Much Love

Amber

Glamourdolleyes!!! YAY!!! FOTD AND REVIEW!

IMG_0896

 

Well hello there! I’m back again with another GlamourDollEyes FOTD and review!! I will be featuring four colours in this look as always and I will give you rundown on what I think they are (not what the site says kinda things) at the end there will be purchase link and all that wonderful stuff so that you can go and get these shades yourself (which you have to!! That’s an order!! ) On to a pretty picture heavy post well kinda. This review I did on the colours that I purchased.

 

IMG_0893

Shaded Orchid, Lustrous, Victorian, Vulnerable

Shaded Orchid Lustrous Victorian Vulnerable

Shaded Orchid, Lustrous, Victorian, Vulnerable

Alright so those are the jars, open and closed. Aren’t they pretty??? Here’s the descriptions in my own words of these shades.

SHADED ORCHID:Is this deep purple with a tiny bit of metallic reflex when its foiled over the lid. Its a striking colour and works great in the crease for a lot of depth. Its super pigmented and creamy and is fast turning into one of my favorite colours.

Lustrous(FEBRUARY GWP SOLD OUT) :Is this super sparkly pink maroon colour. When it’s foiled its like a pink glitter bomb on the lid. I LOVE it! Seriously love it!

Victorian: This colour is odd to me. I want to say it is a pink. And then I want to say that it’s a purple, or maybe a maroon, or a fushia. Its one of them, or all of them in one. Its an amazing outer v colour and blends like a dream. I haven’t foiled this one yet so I’m not to sure what this one looks like foiled

Vulnerable: This colour is super pretty too. This one when foiled is like this rose gold colour, I used this as my high light, inner corner (foiled) and an all over the lid kinda thing (just to start) I love it. And when I run out I will be buying more.

Now on to the FOTD!

 

IMG_0926

As you can see the pinks really make blue eyes pop!

Alright so we have Vulnerable all over the lid and as a highlight and foiled in the inner corner. On the lid we have Lustrous foiled on the lid, in the crease we have Shaded orchid, and in the outer v and lower lash line we have Victorian.

GlamourDollEyes FOTD and review #4

IMG_0705 (1)

GlamourDollEyes has provided a huge discount to bloggers to buy these shadows to review. I paid for these with my own money, and all opinions are straight from me and not the company.

What can I say? I love this brand! There are going to be soooo many reviews coming up from this brand its kinda overwhelming. Lets get on with it!! WARNING PICTURE HEAVY!

IMG_0708

Malicious, Corrode, Vulnerable, Flawless

Malicious I want to say is like a purple shimmer with blue glitters in it. Its a really really pretty colour that I used for my crease and my outer V. It was super simple to work with, and this colour is so pigmented when you apply it wet. Its like BAM purple shimmer with glitter in it. When applied dry its not nearly as glittery.

Corrode is this beautiful green metallic with teal glitters in it. I applied this one wet and I was so hugely impressed with it. It went on super smooth and didn’t clump up at all, and the amount of product I had to use didn’t even leave a dent in my jar. If I was to run out of this colour, I would buy another one right away.

Vulnerable is this nude/gold shimmer that looks amazing on the inner corner or highlight. For the look I did though I used it ALL over my lid all the way up, just to have a base there. It blends with other colours super easily. Love this colour

Flawless is a pink shimmery colour that is also great for an inner corner or a highlight. I actually applied this colour on my cheeks and on my nose and a bit on my forehead as a highlight. It went on more then perfect and has become another staple in my routine. LOVE IT!

NOW ON TO THE LOOK!

Glamourdolleyes, swatch and review and FOTD!!!!! Part 3

1902346_10151868654697181_576743900_o

Glamourdolleyes, swatch and review and FOTD!!!!! Part 3

So lets just face it. I’m in love with Glamourdolleyes. Yes that’s right. Move over other pigments, this mama has found her favorite brand. Period. I honestly don’t think I will ever go back. I mean who could give up super luxurious pigments that pack such a punch that they will last you forever?? They are so versatile and because Vee knows her stuff, she has it labeled on the bottom of the jar whether or not they are vegan/ non vegan lip and eye safe ect. And she has every colour of the rainbow plus some! There are mattes and shimmers, and glitters, and sheers and GAH just EVERYTHING! She is constantly coming out with different colours (I have another 13 on the way shhhhhh). And I vow that one day I will have them all. That’s right. I will have every single pigment that Glamourdolleyes comes out with because that is just how much I love them. Seriously check them out. I bought these pigments on discount as a blogger to review on my blog.

On to the swatches and the look! For the look that I did, I used Angel wings, Candy Floss, Stellar, All Nighter and Glam Girl I also used Benefit’s stay don’t stray primer and MAC fix+ spray for foiling.

05491

Left side is foiled on all swatches with MAC fix+ spray
Right side is dry pigment applied with my finger
I have primer on the whole section of my arm

Now that you have seen the swatches in the previous picture lets speak about them a touch.

Angel Wings is a white pearl with a tiny bit of purple reflex it it, so that when the light catches it it really just glows.

Candy floss is this perfect pink, when foiled it gives it this metallic sheen to it that is just breath taking. This is one of my favorite colours and I find myself reaching for it more and more often.

Stellar is a blackened purple, it kind of reminds me of a bruise, but it is a staple in my collection due to the fact that I am constantly doing purple smokey eyes, or dramatic looks that are all about purple (it’s my favorite colour).

All Nighter is a blue toned purple, that when foiled pulls more blue to it, its super creamy and pigmented and a tiny bit goes a super long way. And last but certainly not least is,

Glam Girl. This one is my favorite shade of purple, its like this pinky purple shimmer that it just blends so nicely with Candy floss and  All Nighter ( just wait you’ll see. )

THE LOOK!
