Nailing It! Butter London Black Knight

19 Feb

Hello everyone! A quick blurb today on Butter London’s Black Knight nail polish. This is an awesomely cool nail polish shade to wear and I love Butter London’s polish formulations. It’s unfortunate that they are pricey compared to OPI or other polish brands otherwise I would definitely buy more.

Science Day

18 Feb

Hello everyone! A really late night post today but I had a fun time today with my family. We went to check out the Star Wars exhibit at the local Science center and it was pretty cool. Now if there was one for the Lord of the Rings I think I would die from excitement. Anyways, I didn’t take too many photos in there as there were a lot of people and time was of the essence. We got to watch an IMAX movie (first time for me the screen was HUGE!) and it was awesome as well. For today I’ll leave you with a few snapshots of the other exhibits in the Science center.

Hello everyone! A quick post today these are my messed up Urban Decay Naked palettes yes I depotted them as they weren’t going to get any love from me. The palettes looked pretty banged up and some of the shadows were injured during the transfer but they are getting a whole lot more love right now.

What I did to get the eyeshadows out was just a straightening iron, alcohol (90% was used) and an Exacto blade. It required quite a bit of force especially when it came to the Naked 2 palette.

The Original Naked is the first row then followed by Naked 2 and the larger eyeshadows are Covergirl Trios in Shimmering Sands and Golden Sunset.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Review: Too Faced Natural Face palette

13 Feb

Hello everyone! A fun review today on Too Faced’s Natural Face palette and to clarify this is the first on that they came out with and not the new one that was released with nice packaging (that palette is a little darker than this palette).

IMG_1179 IMG_1180 IMG_1181 IMG_1183 IMG_1185 IMG_1187 IMG_1192

Description: An all-in-one face palette to complete the natural look on your face. The palette contains a light bronzer, rose cream blush, light peachy pink blush, a concealer, pinky cream luminizer and a light cream brightener.

Review: I have been eyeing this palette since it came out in I believe Spring 2011 and was very excited to try it out. Unfortunately, it didn’t meet my expectations. First off the color selection is very limited only those with a light to medium skintone can actually use the palette. Women of Color would have difficulty getting the actual products to work for them especially the concealer and brightener shade. Second the pigmentation was… very poor. I thought that Too Faced’s face products would be good because their eyeshadows are well-pigmented and is silky smooth and easy to blend. Not so with this face palette while doing a finger swatch everything looked very vibrant and pigmented but when applied with a brush it was barely seen on my skin. The only product in this that worked as it was intended was the cream blush and the luminizer. The blush barely showed up on my skin and when I did pile it on all that appeared was the shimmers in the blush though it was extremely smooth. The concealer and brightener did little to my skin when blended out it was as if it was never there and did not cover anything at all. A pet peeve of mine is actually having cream and powder products together as the cream products tend to “collect” powder dust. Overall, this is not a product that worked well for me and to pay $48CDN for only two products that work is just too much.

Cost: $39USD/$48CDN

Where to buy: Sephora.com, TooFacedCosmetics.com

Would I recommend this product? Not unless you are super pale and enjoy using barely there products.
