Eye Makeup First Impressions

I was bored, so I decided to try a few items I haven’t used yet. Yes… it’s 10:30pm and I’m putting on makeup… so what?

Anyway, I was only planning on comparing two mascaras but after applying them, I wanted to try a couple new eyeliners so it looks like crap since I did it backwards. Anyways…

The first mascara I put on was this one…

image

This is one of the new versions of Rimmel Scandaleyes. It’s supposed to help curl lashes. I like the formula and the way it also adds fullness and length. It also did well on my almost non-existent lower lashes. The brush is extremely fat and kinda wonky…

image

The second one I applied was another version of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex, with fibers…

image

The brush is fat too, but not curved. The formula is extremely wet and I found it a bit hard to work with and also a bit clumpy, but maybe I just applied the second coat too soon. It sort of made a mess of my bottom lashes, but my hands are always shaky so it could have just been that.

image

I tried out my new Real Techniques brow brush/comb and I absolutely LOVE it. The comb is metal! It did a perfect job of combing my lashes between mascara coats to get rid of most of the clumps from the Flex mascara too 🙂

image

image

I also put the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Nude on my waterline. I like the way it looks as I’ve never used a nude eyeliner on my waterline before. As far as being waterproof… that remains to be seen!

image

Lastly (told ya I did this backwards) I used the new Maybelline Master Duo to line my upper lashes. It was very smooth and easy to use, but it does dry fast so I had to work quickly. Since I already had mascara on, it doesn’t look that great, but I can tell it will be wonderful next time I use it.

image

image

These pictures suck because my phone camera’s battery was low and the flash wouldn’t work. Anyway, the brush has a thick part on the end but if you turn it sideways it is thin.

image

See, you can easily get either a thick or thin line. The formula goes on super smooth and did not tug at my lids at all. Underneath I swatched the nude eyeliner. It’s very creamy and smooth too!

Ok… Here’s how it turned out…

image

Looking at the picture, the curling mascara (orange tube) is on the left and the Flex fiber mascara is on the right.

image

image

I have no other makeup on except a wet n wild lipstick that I couldn’t get a good picture of. I really needed the flash to capture the pink/blue shift in the shade.

This was a long post. At least it stopped the boredom! Have you tried any of these products?  What do you think? Which eye do you like better?


New – My Daily Post

So I’ve decided to commit (again) to posting daily. I’ve realized that my randomness and lack of consistent topics may have been one of my setbacks.

So I give you: My Daily Attitude/Gratitude List

The theory is to write a gratitude list daily… you know, to remind myself what I’m grateful of… not a unique idea right.

But the Attitude part of the list will include my rants of the day. This way I get it out of my system, you guys will probably get some laughs at the expense of my awkwardness, unfortunate timing and all around bad luck… daily.

See… it’s a win-win!

Sometimes I might try to incorporate photos, but I’m blogging thru my phone right now which already makes it 1000 times more difficult than it really should be.

Shall we begin? Ok.

Attitude:

1- I woke around 3 this morning to an odd noise in my bedroom… kak kak kaaaak kkkaaaapppllleck!  Kak kak kak kak….kak kak kak kkkaaaapppllleck! Any guesses? Yep. The cat puked on my bed. Twice. I had to clean the messes, put the blanket in the washer, make sure the poor kitty was finished yakking, and find a replacement blanket for the rest of my sleep time.
image

Gratitude- The kitty is okay. She’s not sick. After investigating the puke, I determined the cause to be hairballs. (Wait… the investigation should be in the attitude part…)

Attitude 2- I discovered an infestation of gnats in my new home. I had to spray around all the windows and outside doors, google how to get rid of gnats, and prepare traps consisting of balsamic vinegar, dish soap and water in containers. I put the strainers from my sinks on top of the containers since I had no cling wrap to poke holes in as google suggested.

Gratitude- I am finally in my new place! And I was genius enough to think of using sink strainers for my gnat traps!

Attitude 3- my insomnia is raging for some reason.  Even my sleeping meds aren’t phasing me one bit. I’m so tired and irritable…

Gratitude- I have Netflix and Candy Crush to keep me company during the vampirish hours. Also,  I’ve been experimenting with my gigantic makeup collection. Who says you can’t put on a full face of makeup at 2am for no reason?
image

Ok. That’s enough for now. I’m sooooo sleepy that my eyes are all blurry.

Is this idea dumb? Any suggestions?  How could I be more entertaining for you? ^..^ Kat

Upcoming Giveaway Items: Part 1

So. I’m going to break this down into at least 2 posts because I have a lot of items and I don’t have pics of all of them yet. Here are some more items I will be including in my upcoming giveaway:
image
This is one of the Profusion Color Canvas palettes that I have posted about before, and swatched in my last post. The colors are very buttery and pigmented with a nice shimmer.

image
This is the e.l.f. Studio Blush in the shade Twinkle Pink, which is, according to many, a great dupe for Nars Orgasm!

image
My favorite eos lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet. I absolutely LOVE the cute packaging and the product inside is amazing. Really.

image
This is a wonderfully scented shimmer lotion from Victoria’s Secret Fantasies: With a Kiss, in Sparkling Berries & Magnolia Flower. This is perfect for special nights out when you are wearing a low-cut dress or top. Or just anytime you wanna sparkle and smell delicious… er… moving on…

image
Here is one of the many nail polishes I will be including in my giveaways. This is Nailtini Nail Lacquer in the shade 108: Bloody Mary.

image
Here are 2 lovely shades of nail polish from e.l.f. The one on the left is Cranberry. The polish on the right is Copper. I like them both a lot.

image
Sticking with another e.l.f. product (can you tell I quite like that brand?) this is the Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in the color Coffee. Next to the eyeliner is a hand sanitizer lol. I know they don’t quite go together, but I had to throw it in as it is SO cute and smells delicious. It is Bath & Body Works PocketBac in Party Animal, which is scented as Confetti Cake and has an adorable puppy on the package!

image

Yep, more e.l.f. These are the Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks. The shades up for grabs are: Summer Nights, Flirty & Girly, Tiki Torches, and Movie Star (not pictured) but looks like a deep burgundy. I love these sticks, they are comparable to all the dupes of the Clinique Chubby Sticks.

image

This pic doesn’t do these polishes justice, but I think they are all so pretty and I am OBSESSED with glitter polishes lately. First is Nicole by OPI in Kendall on the Katwalk. it’s really hard to tell in this pic, but the color is amazing with deep blue, purple and aqua glitter.
The polish in the middle is Pure Ice in the shade Cheatin. Super sparkly and gorgeous. The last one is Revlon’s Ritzy. I am really liking Revlon’s polishes. Black polish with black and silver sequin-glitter type thingies… yeah.

image

Here is another Profusion palette. This one has 36 eyeshadows and a mirror inside the large palette. The shadows are nicely pigmented and shimmery.

image

Lastly (for this post anyway) are 2 smaller profusion shimmer palettes. Each palette has 10 pans of shadows.

Whew, this was a long post and I didn’t even go into a lot of detail like I usually do. This is about half of the items I have for this giveaway. Don’t worry. I am going to split everything up into groups so each winner will get a nice random variety of products 🙂

Hugs, and thank you all for reading, it really does mean a lot to me! Kat


Profusion Color Canvas Palette

image

image

image

I LOVE these Profusion palettes. They are really buttery and extremely pigmented. The swatches above are without flash (top) and with flash (bottom). I did not use a primer underneath the swatches. The longest 3 swatches on the left are the colors in the larger pans. The rest are going in the “m” pattern of the smaller pots.

Ignore the odd angle of the photos please. I used the camera on my Samsung Note 2, and it is awkward to take pics with only one hand!!!!

Anywayyyyyy… I am going to include this palette in my upcoming giveaway. I hit 100 followers last weekish and am trying to finish getting everything organized for the giveaway. I have lots to give away.

I do want to save some for future giveaways though. I’m thinking this one should have 2 or 3 winners. I am going to try to post pics of most of the items tonight so check back in a bit!
Hugs, Kat


Urban Decay Haul

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted,  mostly because I haven’t been in much of a mood to write. Plus there hasn’t been anything interesting to write about.

That is, until today. Remember the Urban Decay sale I told you about? My package arrived today!!! All the items were individually wrapped in deep Purple tissue paper. There is a ton of it! It’s such a pretty color that I decided to save it, something I don’t normally do.

Here is what I got:

image

The first things I got out of the UD package were a small sample card of the UD Primer Potion and a thank-you card with a $5 off coupon. I will probably stick the sample in my upcoming giveaway. Maybe the coupon also, what do you think?

Next I grabbed this:

image

The 24/7 Double Ended Eye Pencil set. It came with 4 colors: Uzi, Empire,  Zero and Corrupt. It also included a Grind House pencil sharpener. I have one already and will never use another sharpener, I love it so much. This one is see through plastic, though. The one I already had is the opaque UD purple. Hmmm.

image

Moving on. Next was this:

image

Yes I know I already got the double ended ones, but both sets were such a steal. I couldn’t pass either up.

This is the 24/7 Smoked Glide-on Eye Pencil set. It also has the colors Uzi, Zero and Empire, along with Demolition,  Smog and Mainline. I LOVE colored liners and have also heard these wear well in the waterline!

This is what came out next:

image

image

This is the Mariposa palette! The palette is just gorgeous and will give me some much needed color in my UD collection, which consisted of only the Naked palettes,  until now! I was a bit disappointed that it only came with 2 double-ended sponge tip applicators. They are useless in my opinion. I don’t understand why cosmetic companies,  especially higher end ones, even bother.

And lastly:

image

image

This is the Deluxe Shadow Box!!!! This is my favorite. The packaging is super cute and definitely my style! Purple velvet and silver metal… yes!!!
This also came with a mini brush and an actual sample tube of primer potion!!!

This is getting long so I will make another post with swatches. I also am super excited that I hit 100 followers yesterday!!! I am still gathering items for the giveaway, don’t worry. I will make it awesome! Keep a look out for the Giveaway Post!

Thank you so much for reading! Kat
