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?

Revlon Untamed nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning, lacquer lovers! The other day, I was wondering around Walgreens and found Revlon Untamed in a display. It looked really interesting, so I wanted to share it with you!

Untamed is a blackened duochrome base with pink specks and larger bronze flakes.

This is 2 coats plus top coat. It dries really fast, and the formula is fairly thick. The base is almost a little too dark, because it seems muddy looking.

This is a promising nail polish from a mainstream company, which is why I picked it up. I really hope more drugstore brands start coming out with more interesting polishes like this.

What are your thoughts of this polish?

Revlon Copa Sunset, Oi Beautiful, Carioca Crush nail polishes

Happy Friday to you!! Isn’t it nice to finally be Friday? Today I have the perfect 3 bright nail polishes to show you that I picked up from Ross awhile back (for the awesome price of $7 for a pack of four – it also included a base coat). I’m not sure what collection Revlon Copa Sunset, Oi Beautiful, and Carioca Crush are from – or even if they are – but let’s see them!

Revlon Copa Sunset | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Copa Sunset is a super bright pink coral nail polish. This is 2 coats with no top coat.

Revlon Oi Beautiful | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Oi Beautiful is a tropical punchy purple that is warmer & brighter than my photo (ugh, thanks camera for non-color-accuracy). This is 3 thin coats and no top coat.

Revlon Carioca Crush | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Carioca Crush is a stunning bright blue that reminds me of neon blue lights. This is also 3 coats and no top coat.

These three polishes really do invoke a feeling of tropical hot summer nights and I’m glad I found them at a great price. Which one is your favorite here?
