#7 & #8, corpse ombre

I have mixed feelings. It is the first time I do an ombre paint job using a sponge, and I failed at it. On the other hand I really like the colour scheme, because I’m a bit of a goth: I applied the translucent white as a base coat, then feathered one layer of the…

“Boyfriend Explains What Makeup Is”

My blog is pretty new and I’ve never done any of these tag things, but these were funny to read, and I really needed a pick me up this afternoon. My BF was very gracious to accept, and cheer me up it did, we were cracking up! Tip of the hat to thelifeofkristyn’s post and agirlrecommends’ post….

#6

I continue picking out the nice colours on my nail polish challenge. Today it was Kiko’s 300’s turn. A rather bright teal/petrol. It looks darker in the bottle and I wish it was deeper, in fact, it’d match the tips of my hair better. I’ve begun filing my nails to a point. A shallower ojive tip, a…

Bone dust, fire opal, crystal guardian, cloud kingdom, floating gems, marauders, nexus, demon soul, golem and puzzle. Keywords from an RPG game? no, my first Femme Fatale Cosmetics loose eyeshadow order 🙂 love the names! on to the pics: I looked at tons of swatches online (of course including FFC’s ones), and read reviews, before…

Zoeva brush review

It is time to write my thoughts on the 6 Zoeva brushes I ordered in March, and with which I inaugurated this blog. I’ve been using them almost every day since then, it’ll be two months in a few days. So let’s get on to it. Bristles & wear (so far) Disclaimer: Let me begin…

Swash

I was applying Rebel (MAC) straight from the bullet, and I really liked the first swash on the bottom lip, so I left it like that and added a little concealer to the rest of the lip.

#5

Tuesday (yesterday) night I had already tired of my previous nail polish. Details on #4, which I’ve updated. To detox, I filed my nails a little rounder and went for a dark colour. Kiko 227, dark rouge noir, is fantastic, a blackened berry. It is nearly black, but obviously enough still red. This bottle is…

Maybelline Age Rewind – quick comparison

Today I received the much anticipated (by me) Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer. Everyone raves about it so I had to try, but the Maybelline range is of limited availability in Belgium. I also could not find the shade 01 fair in online UK shops so I got this one from a US seller. I…

MAC palettes

Yesterday I passed by the MAC store looking for a greyish brown for the brow. I mostly use a mix of Soba, Rummy and Showstopper, and wanted something lighter than Rummy but darker than Soba. I got Concrete. This led me to rearrange my palettes, of course ;°) so I took some pictures and put…

Nail polish challenge #3

I feel like I am cheating on this, taking the best colours first. Last week’s nail polish was a hurried application at a friend’s, and I didn’t use a base coat. I used the Kiko topcoat mentioned below, which I don’t think is very crack or scratch resistant, bit soft… By yesterday (Thursday) it was…
