Sh*t, I really gotta get my act together and start paring down how wordy I am in my titles. Oh well. I didn’t want to make a separate post just for two photos of my new sunglasses so you’re getting them at the end of this post. (I decided to make a separate post after all.) Andddddd I have swatches galore in this post so it is a bit longer of a post. I hope you’re okay with that. 😛

Anyway, I saw an eyeshadow look on instagram from abajmiller and wanted to try it out. Of course, mine didn’t come out near as gorgeous as hers but that’s the way it goes. I’ve used the Lorac Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales palette again (I used it last week in my art deco makeup look). Continue reading

Revlon Hologasm

Have you ever just been so bone-deep tired that you feel like you could sleep for years? Yeah, that’s how I feel right now – for literal years. Like, a hungover kind of tired, except without the fun of drinking the night before. And I feel that way every day. Enough about my problems, this is my current mani and I guess I’m just feeling blue. I riffed off of this manicure guzelia_gold posted on instagram. I quite like that the Revlon is barely there! I will have swatches of the Revlon holographic polishes soon. I hope!

Renaissance Faire makeup look and hair

Hi everyone! I thought I’d share my hair and makeup look I created a few weeks ago for attending a local Renaissance Faire (RennFaire). It’s always fun to go to this RennFaire because 1 – there are a ton of redheads which I don’t always get to see! and 2 – the booths are fun to peruse and activities are so fun to watch.

I loosely followed this picture from mabsmakeup on instagram for my eye makeup. My friend Kate suggested that I do some deep greens but as I had other obligations that day, I couldn’t go too crazy.  Continue reading

Rainbow Eye Makeup look with Glamour Doll Eyes

Press Sample buttonHappy Sunday all! I am seriously excited to show you today’s makeup look that I created with Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadows so let’s just jump right to it. I’ve also used a few Wet N Wild products in this look – I’ll detail everything in this post. I have used a few products from GDE that I was provided with to use in makeup looks. I was inspired by this look from taniawallerx3.

Revlon Magnetic swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonA cold hello to you all this morning. It’s going to be a bitterly cold weekend here and I’m going to be hibernating while trying not to kill bored children (snow day today, whee!). Anyway, I have a mainstream polish I picked up a month or two ago – Revlon Magnetic to show you today.

Magnetic is a nice mainstream color shifting polish with blue glitters. I’m sure you could build this up by itself but I’m showing Magnetic 1 coat plus top coat over Revlon Oi Beautiful [previously swatched].

Revlon Magnetic over Revlon Oi Beautiful color shift | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This has a fairly nice color shift from dark purple to a reddish color.  Formula is of good thickness, though a little uneven. It does dry fast and matte.

Although I liked how this looked in the bottle, the unevenness of the formula was a little off-putting and it’s a bit too frosty looking for my taste. What do you think of it?

Revlon Ultra HD Matte LipColor in Seduction, Passion

Purchased by Me buttonAfternoon everyone! I hope you are relaxing and enjoying this Sunday. 🙂 I have two lippies that I picked up awhile back to show you today: Revlon Ultra HD Matte LipColor in Seduction and Passion.

On the left is Passion and on the right is Seduction. I found the formula of these strange. They went on kind of thick but spread nicely. But they aren’t matte by my definition. They have a sheen to them, and they never dry. I guess the good thing is that they don’t dry out your lips like traditional matte lip products?

I used Seduction in a makeup look awhile back and I really do like the way it looks on me, I can find other matte lip products that are actually matte.

Would you like a close up of my lips? Oops, too late. 😛 At any rate, Seduction is actually much lighter on me than my swatches above show – of course, getting color accurate swatches is always a pain in the rear.

In case you’re wondering about my eye makeup, I’m wearing Urban Decay Grasshopper (brighter green) + Crowbar (crease), L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner (tight line), CoverGirl Intensify Me! eyeliner (wing & top liner).

All in all, I guess I’d have to give Revlon Ultra HD Matte LipColor a pass. Good thing I only bought 2 of them, if I’d shelled out more money, I’d be upset! What do you think about these new lippies that are marketed as “matte” but aren’t?
