Project Update: Month 5 + 6 + 7

8 Jan

Hello everyone! Update from October and I have to say I am slightly disappointed with myself. Here are the goodies that I picked up the past three months (and note that some of them are Christmas presents):

IMG_2366 IMG_2369 IMG_2371 IMG_2373 IMG_2375

For October I picked up a few things and then went really crazy for makeup in November due to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales and got a lots of gifts sets in December. I also made two indie cosmetics orders (Sugarpill + Geek Chic Cosmetics) from Black Friday shopping (hooray for great deals!).

So first off I have to say that I have a soft spot for special/unique packaging. That was one of the main reasons why I picked up the Shu Uemura X Takashi Murakami collaboration palettes. The Canadian prices of these palettes are really inflated ($90CAD) and the colors are dupable but that packaging is to die for. So that makes these two palettes my most expensive makeup items that I own. >.< One of the palettes broke in transit but I got it replaced which was really nice of Shu to do now they are both in pristine condition ready to be used.

The other things of course is the Vice 2 palette from Urban Decay with it’s gorgeous jewel-tone shades how could I resist? And I have had my eyes on getting more OCC Lip tars to add to my collection and since these are only available online I picked two that are just perfect for the fall/winter times. I used them a couple of times and they are GORGEOUS! If you haven’t tried these lip products go and try them they are amazing! Shades purchased are Strumpet and Black Dahlia.

From MAC I purchased a duo compact and an eyeshadow for a brow duo and I also got the Violet lip bag which contained a lipliner (Vino), lipstick (Dark Deed) and lipgloss (Art of Seduction).
So from the online orders what I ordered from Sugarpill Cosmetics is Bulletproof eyeshadow (who can’t get enough black eyeshadows?), Tipsy and Weekender loose eyeshadow (the only pigments I’m missing for a complete Sugarpill collection), and of course the Cold Chemistry palette (this is a must have of course haven’t you seen the palette gorgeous!). From Sephora’s VIB Sale I picked up the Too Faced All I want for Christmas set and in the photos am missing the eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow primer.

From Geek Chic Cosmetics I ordered a few things it’s been a while since I ordered from them but they had released a new collection and I wanted to try some lippies this time around. So I ordered the whole 8-piece Fellowship collection (LOTR related of course I couldn’t say no); Doll Cheeks Blush (Nerdgasm is one of my favorites); lipsticks in My little Pwny, Crysalis, Lipstick of the Shifting Sands, and Once Bitten; Geek Gloss in Health Potion, Benevolent, and Banished. I won’t wear Banished that much but when I review these item it will be epic.
Holiday Gifts from ELF (they all came in sets and stuff) and purchased for myself is a few new things from the drugstores (L’Oreal and Rimmel).

Face masks = haven’t used them very much in the past 3 months… You’d think with exams and studying that I would just put on a mask and continue to study but I haven’t actually used any sheet masks this month. I just used a clay one this month because my skin has been acting up. I will be trying to use up my stash much more this year.

So after this posts up comes my resolutions for next year and I’ll let you know then what my plans are for purchasing new makeup and stuff like that. And can I say HOLY WALL OF TEXT!!

Review: Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette

11 Apr

Hello everyone! Another Sugarpill review today which is terribly exciting I have a majority of their products so obviously there is going to be more reviews coming sooner or later.

Description: Mochi (lime green matte), 2AM (bright cyan blue matte), Acidberry (berry purple satin finish), and Velocity (seafoam turquoise satin finish).

Review: This palette is my second most used palette out of all three available Sugarpill palettes. I love the shades in this one as they are all cool-toned eyeshadow. All the shadows are easy to work with, blendable, and pigmented. 2Am and Acidberry were a little hard to swatch and required multiple swipes with a brush in order to build up the color on the eyes but they are still gorgeous shades. All shades were buttery, had little fall-out and lasted for a full 8 hours with primer. I think these shades are perfect for spring/summer with such bright fun shades. Overall, another great palette from Sugarpill Cosmetics.

Cost: $34USD @ http://www.sugarpillshop.com/collections/shop

Would I recommend this product? I would for those who love their bright colors and playing with different formulations.

Review: Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette

5 Apr

Hello everyone! Indie makeup has lately been making headlines in my collection and I thought I would share a few great indie products with you.

Description: An eyeshadow quad with coordinating shades in Buttercup (matte yellow), Flamepoint (matte orange), Love+ (matte red), and Poison Plum (matte purple).

Review: First, I must mention that I am not a big fan of matte eyeshadows (please don’t kill me) but I love that these shades are in that formula. In the industry matte eyeshadows are harder to create considering that they don’t have fillers (such as shimmer) so you are essentially getting pure pigments with matte shades. As that is most matte shades are not the best as they can be patchy in application or not work well with other eyeshadow types. But Sugarpill eyeshadows are plenty pigmented and smooth on very well (except for Poison Plum which is a little hard to work with). Flamepoint, Love+ and Poison Plum work very well on their own but Buttercup needed a white base underneath for the colour to actually show up on my eyes. If I just wore Buttercup by itself it would look like I had jaundiced eyes so having a bright base underneath really help brought out the colour. All shades blended easily with other eyeshadows and staying power was extremely excellent a full 8 hours+! Overall, a great palette and I am extremely impressed with Sugarpill cosmetics for making an awesome eyeshadow palette.

Would I recommend this product? This is an awesome eyeshadow palette for those who love warm, bright colours!
