FOTD: NILLIONAIRE X STYLED IN SEPIA MAKEUP LOOK

Hi Guys,

I did this look over the holiday to step out for a little get together. I used my new and fave colour pop eye shadow of the bunch i purchased. I went for a subtle look with nude lips and i tried out the new strobbing technique. I really like it and i must say this technique is for people like me who are not really big on an overly sculpted face.

On the lips, i applied Mac Styled in Sepia which is a matte dirty cement beige color. I noticed this color is getting really popular in the liquid lipstick community and i was tempted to get one but i hardly ever wear this so... SKIP!! For the last three pics i applied MAC Boy Bait creme sheen glass untop for some shine. Hope you all like the look.

REVIEW: COLOUR POP EYESHADOW HAUL

Hi Guys,

 Recently i have been doing very little makeup purchases but i couldn't resist this new product that kept popping up on my IG and youtube feed. Colour pop eyeshadows. Now colour pop is an instagram famous brand that is all the rave right now. I am an eye shadow girl but when i saw these i knew they where just next level gorgeous. I had to give them a try and i purchased 5 different colours to start with.

Colour pop has a variety of colours and finishes which include Satin,Matte,Metallic, Ultra Mettalic and Pearlized. I honestly ran to the website after watching a tutorial by one of my fav youtubers using the "So quiche" eye shadow. This particular one have a mettalic finish and has the most beautiful finish i had ever seen.
Black drizzled with multiple shades of green and subtle hints of blue and gold glitter
Bright peacock teal in a Pearlized finish.
Intense penny copper with a liquid like ultra-metallic finish.
Warm bronze with tons of gold and multi coloured glitter
 Copper penny like shade with silver and gold glitter
I  couldnt find the back cover shot for Sequin so i  gave u double eyeshadow "LOOKAGE".. LOL


So i picked up: Coconut, Nillionaire, GameFace, Sequin and Shameless..

Now i'm not going to go into details about each one of them because they are all beautiful and bla bla bla.. Yup.. Straight to the point.(I did include descriptions of the colors under each pic). Overall i really love these.They do not feel like regular eye shadows. These have a moussey effect and are so soft to touch. It is also highly recommended that you apply these with your fingers for intense color payoff. I did that and they looked amazing on. Now that i have gotten that out of the way you need to be careful when handling these because they break easily. Very annoying but i guess i can live with it. The packaging also helps with this as you can screw the top tightly and not experience spilling if you are stuck with a broken eye shadow like i am.. 

Overall, i have nothing but great things to say about the performance of them all. The
priceis great at 5 dollars a pop which comes to about N1200 in Naira but they are sold between N2000-2500 here. Re sellers gotta make that bread so i guess its fine.

What's your fave Colour Pop eyeshadow? Mine for now is NILLIONAIRE!!!! I just love how it catches the light!!! :D.. I cant wait to try "I heart This" "Envy" "Rex" and "So Quiche"

REVIEW: MY MAKEUPNG NEW COLLECTION



MYMAKEUP  sent me a few products from their line a while back. I received  two eye shadow pigments and a lip pencil.

LOVELINE is a soft satin pink color with not too much shimmer. I like how this color is an in between matte/satin shade. 

CHERRY ON TOP  is a red shimmery color that is super pigmented. It blends really well and surprisingly i used this color as a crease color for a colorful look i did and i really liked it.

HOT TAMALE LIP PENCIL  is very pigmented. It can be worn alone without a lipstick and it is long lasting. I also used this to create beautiful ombre lip looks. It looks especially pretty when paired with a soft pink lippie.

FOTD: PURPLE EYES WITH MAC RUBY WOO LIPSTICK



Hi Guys,

I always wanted to go a purple eye look with red lips. I am not the biggest fan of red lipstick's and i do shy away from using it in my makeup looks. I always liked the look of the two paired together. I was further inspired after watching the opening scene for Devious Maids Season 3. Rosie's wedding makeup was absolutely beautiful and i caught the icy purple color on her lids. How random..... LOL

Took my pictures outside with natural lighting which made everything much brighter. Hope you like you all like it.

REVIEW: LA GIRL BLUSH COLLECTION IN GLAM


L.A Girl cosmetics is not playing and their new all in one cheek palette collection defines this. It's pretty amazing. L.A Girl recently released four blush palettes and i must say they are pretty awesome.

WHAT L.A GIRL SAYS: Four gorgeous blush palettes - each collection pairs two blush shades with a coordinated bronzer and highlighter. Instantly contour with complimentary shades and blendable color in both matte and shimmery finishes for multidimensional color. Each luxurious, glossy book includes a mirror inside.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE:  The "GLAM" palette includes a hot pink color, dusty rose a contour shade and a gorgeous champagne color highlight. This colors will work well with any skin tone but most especially brown skin. The contour color is not too dark and will give the perfect amount of definition to the face when applied with a light hand. Now that Highlighter!!! It is seriously gorgeous, very pigmented and shines beautifully under the sun. 

I have been rocking this palette in my recent looks and i can't wait to get more . I have my eye on "SPICE". It looks  awesome for brown skin.
