Hot Topic Sanguis Draconis eyeshadow palette and highlighter swatches, review, and makeup looks

Purchased by Me buttonI was scrolling through my instagram feed the other day when I saw that a fellow makeup lover had posted pics of the Hot Topic Sanguis Draconis eyeshadow palette and highlighter she had bought, which reminded me that I hadn’t posted the pictures of swatches and makeup looks I had created with the eyeshadow palette. Let’s rectify that today, okay?

Let’s talk about this packaging because it is intense! I took these pictures in lower daylight and the colors just popped out. In the sunlight, it’s even more crazy! So A+ on packaging.

I realized that even though I’ve worn a lot of makeup this last week, I haven’t shown any makeup looks on the blog in awhile! Starting last weekend through to yesterday, it was kind of crazy busy around here. I need to sit and swatch polishes but haven’t found the drive. Anyone have ambition for me to borrow? 😀

Glamour Doll Eyes It’s So Fluffy, Bella Donna Remix, Rocket FOTD

Press Sample buttonAffiliate Links buttonHappy Saturday to you! 🙂 How was your week? I somehow aggravated the nerves in my right (dominant) arm and so my arm from my elbow down into my hand have hurt like crazy! So I’m going to keep this short and sweet. This is the second month that I’ve been able to be a Glamour Doll Eyes Insider, which means that I’m sent 6 eyeshadows to use in 4 different looks over a period of time. Today I’ll show you a look I created with It’s So Fluffy, Bella Donna Remix, and Rocket.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Nude Thrill, Fuschia Ecstasy, Vivid Violet

Purchased by Me buttonAfternoon everyone! Last week I was on a lippie kick (seriously, I bought 7 lippies last week!) and I’d like to start showing you the lip products I bought and reviewing them. First up today is a newer product from Maybelline called Vivid Matte Liquid. I bought three shades: Nude Thrill, Fuchsia Ecstasy, and Vivid Violet.

From left to right: Vivid Violet, Fuchsia Fantasy, Nude Thrill

Formula on these was kind of strange. They were thick in the swatches but spread smoothly and evenly on the lips. But dang, they never ever dried! They also didn’t really dry to a “matte” finish.

I wore Vivid Violet for 4 hours and here’s how it looked after that time. Pretty much worn off totally, and my lips showed every crack, line, and bump. Ick. (To be truthful, I didn’t almost show you this picture!)

When I wore Fuschia Fantasy, I had major feathering, so if you purchase that one, be sure to use a lip liner. It did leave a nice stain though.

My favorite of the three is probably Nude Thrill, but to tell the truth, I’m not real thrilled with any of them. Have you seen these anywhere or bought any?

What I’m wearing for my eyeshadows, if you care to know, are all from the Urban Decay Vice 4 eyeshadow palette. Eyelid is Grip, outer vee is Deadbeat, lower lid next to outer vee is 1985, brow bone is Bones.

Radiant Orchid nail polishes, part 6 (The Berries)

Good morning everyone! 🙂 I’m so excited to be back posting about the Radiant Orchid nail polishes, and I hope you’re excited too. 🙂

Today’s nail polishes will be all those that fit within the berry spectrum of Radiant Orchid. I’ve used one coat of top coat on each of the following, except for Maybelline Lasting Lilac, since that is supposed to have a matte finish. If you’ve missed them, here are parts one, two, three, four, and five. I’m using this color pyramid by Sephora as a guideline:

So many in this group are ones that I love but I think Sinful Colors Fig just edges out the others, with Sagitta coming a close second.  What are your favorites from this selection? Don’t forget, I’d love to do a comparison post, so if you’d like to see any polishes compared to another, just ask! 🙂 The second to last post will be the Radiant Orchid glitters/holos. I can’t wait for those! Until tomorrow,
