Swatch: Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow - In the Spotlight

Soo... I am one of those people who didn't go nuts of joy for the foiled shadows from MUG... Please dont hit me!
I wasn't that impressed really. But it could be because I dont really like the foil finish. I prefer my satins and mattes. Sometimes shimmers. Metallics, frost and foils - not so much.
In the Sportlight did tickle my taste buds though, so to speak. It will probably be my only MUG foil. Heh.
I do like the pans new packaging. Very Gatsby-esque.

Unfortunally, my shadow was trashed. But thanks to that, you can really see the creamy texture of it. I just took the back of my tweezer and pressed the shadow back in the pan, though. Easy as pie. A messy pie.

Thoughts: Suuuper creamy, with a fantastic finish! I think it even would work as a highlighter. Yum.
Cost: $9.99 USD

Poison Spotlight

Of course I had to try out the new shadows. Duh.
Here you can see the issues I had with Poison Plum. It sticks to some places, and not others. Patchy patchy. Any tips?
Anywho. Poison Plum on the lids, with some Bulletproof to deepen. X-rated and Betrayal to blend. Betrayal in the inner corner. In the Sportlight in the middle of the lid. Bloop.
Im not that satisfied with this makeup. Actually, I took it off and did another. Heh. (Also, I had a wonky eyebrow day. And weird hair day. And face day. WTF)

Swatch: Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow - Poison Plum, Bulletproof, Tako

Oh Im finally a part of the Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow crew! I've been wanting to buy some of these shadows for about two years, but I was kind of stingy. I wanted, and still want, all the Heart-palettes, and then they came out with the pro-palette. But I've been waiting for the pro-palette to be available to the public for about 1½ years now and Im getting kind of tired of it.
So I bought Poison Plum and Tako first, because Poison Plum always makes me drool when I see pictures of it, and Tako because I am in need of a white eyeshadow.
Bulletproof I bought in another order though, cause I needed another Z-palette, and my Dams-shadow from Emite is dust.

 All swatches are on top of NYX HD Eyeshadow Base (top) and bare skin (bottom)

Poison Plum

Thoughts: Beautiful color! But kind of hard to work with. As you can see, on the primer it applies patchy, but on bare skin its smooth. Super weird. Couldn't get it even on the eye. Good Pigmentation though. 
Cost: $11.99 USD


Thoughts: Wow it was hard to take any good pictures of this shadow.. Matte white. Great pigmentation, supersmooth on primer, a bit chalky on bare skin. 
Cost: $11.99 USD


Thoughts: Best. Black. Ever. Look at that darknezzzz! Super smooth, even without primer! Lovely!
Cost: £8.95

Dark Room

When Melt Cosmetics lauched their limited edition lipstick in Dark Room, I was over the moon in love with the promos and pics of it. So I bought it. Even though I really didn't afford it. And I am super disappointed with it. I'll do a different post about it though. 
Here it is in action, a lot of work and applied about four or five times. 
What I do love is them lashes! It feels superweird to have them on, since I am not used to wearing thick falsies. 
Of course the daylight was fading when I was taking the pictures, so they aren't up to standard.

Dragon Freak

I felt like doing green. And wearing new lashes. So.. here it is.
Btw,  the Regal-shadow from Sleeks Au Naturel-palette is not a good eyebrow-color. That's why the outer part of my brow is kind of reddish. Also, I have no clue what to do with the inner corner when I do these kind of "halo" looks. So I forgot to anything good about it.

Add a Broke.

I really liked the PPI Add A Lash. It didnt make my eyes water, got sticky really fast and the applicator is nice.
It dried out in the container quite fast though, so the glue got gunky and I had to remove the little blobb in the opening to get more glue out.
It seemes like this made the the glue stick to the cap, so when I turned the cap the whole fregging thing broke.

Upset. I have to find another latex free, good glue with an applicator now. Give me some tips.

Swatches: This and that

I have so much crap in my "not blogged"-folder. Sometimes because I couldn't get a decent pic of the product or swatch, most of the time it's because I just dont know what to write about it. So.. Here's a mixed tape. Heh.
Lots of products that I have bought, photographed, swatched, but not written about. Holler if you want more info or pics, or even a look, with any of the products! :)

Ardell Corset - 503, Red Cherry #47 & #46, Eyelure Definition No 121, Kiss Looks So Natural - Flirty.

Quick review: The corset-ones was unevenly made, and sat weird on the eyes.. Red Cherry #46s are my favorites, so I bought four more pairs. And #47s because they looked cool. And they are humongous. The Eyelure-ones are supper pretty but quite hard in the stem. The Kiss-ones are so soft you cant even feel them when you thouch'em. Amazing.
Cost: Ardell: $3.49 USD, Red Cherry: $2.50 USD, Eyelure: $4.99 USD, Kiss: $3.95 USD.
