Summer FOTD's Fin.

Hello Beauties! Where did this Summer go? I'm still trying to figure it out but I did enjoy every minute of it. Sadly this will be my last one this year (school starts tomorrow). Hope you enjoyed these posts because I enjoyed sharing!

This is like my favorite makeup look. I had the time to do this everyday I more than likely would.

I live for green eye shadow.
OCC Hoochie Liptar

I used MUFE #9 shadow. It's definitely one of my favorite purples.

Pink Pepper and purple
L. A. Girl Last Night lipstick

Neutral eye with pops of color/Sugarpill Velocity e/s on the lower lash line/ OCC Pretty Boy lip tar

MAC Pressed Pigments 2013.

Hello Beauties! Today's posts features a couple of the new MAC Pressed Pigments. I'm so happy I decided to try these because they are absolutely stunning and very easy to work with. Take a look at the two I picked up, enjoy.

Pink Pepper, Damson

Pink Pepper - "Deep coral with gold pearl" 

Damson - "Deep brown with gold pearl"


Pink Pepper, Damson

The swatch really doesn't do justice for either of them. They have a great sparkle and shine that has glitter but not too glitter-y if that makes sense. I apply them but spraying my face with Fix + and a flat paddle brush. I don't experience fall out by using that method. 

These each retail for $21 and they are both limited edition. If you can get your hands on these I really recommend getting them.

Please leave any questions or comments below.

Thanks for reading!

Ben Nye Haul.

Hello Beauties! Today I'm sharing a few photos & swatches of some Ben Nye creme products. It includes a mix of mostly the creme colors, one creme blush or rouge, and a creme highlight.

I purchased these items from Makeup Mania online.
They each retail for $5.95.
The creme colors can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips. The creme highlight all over the face and the creme rouge states usage for the face. 

Ben Nye Creme Color - Bright Pink
Ben Nye Creme Rouge - Coral
Ben Nye Creme Highlight - Deep (CH -5)


Bright Pink, Coral, Dark

Ben Nye Creme Color - Orange
Ben Nye Creme Color - Yellow
Ben Nye Creme Color - Vivid Violet


Orange, Yellow, Vivid Violet

Ben Nye Creme Color - Lime Green
Ben Nye Creme Color - Gecko Green
Ben Nye Creme Color - Green


Lime Green, Gecko Green, Green

Ben Nye Creme Color - Turquoise
Ben Nye Creme Color - Sky Blue
Ben Nye Creme Color - Blue


Turquoise, Sky Blue, Blue

So far I've used the creme colors as eye shadow bases to make the colors pop. They do a really good job but I would recommend using a primer before hand & they do crease so I would also make sure to smooth/blend out before eye shadow application. 

I planned on using the creme highlight to highlight under my brow bone but it may be a bit too pink for that. 

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below.

Summer FOTD's 5.

Hello Beauties! I cannot believe it's August already. I can say that this Summer has been a good Summer for makeup for me. Meaning that I got to use a lot of my collection by constantly rotating products and also adding some new products into the rotation. On to the looks, enjoy!

Very bright colorful look
MAC Magenta lip pencil. RiRi Boy lipstick. Feel My Pulse Lipstick.

I did this fun look using some of my Wet N Wild eye shadows
MAC Korean Candy Sheen Supreme lipstick 

Double winged liner using Lime Crime's Blue Milk liquid liner
NYX's Euro Trash matte lipstick and Buttery Nude Xtreme lip cream

Finally something neutral
Aside from MAC's Naked Dark pigment on my brow bone, all the other eye shadows are from Coastal Scents.
I picked up a few of their hot pots during the latest sale and I haven't used any other shadows since.
I'll have pics and swatches coming really soon. 

NYX Pure Red matte lipstick

The star of this look is the blue shadow, Brandeis Blue, another shade from Coastal Scents
