Purple Kisses....

Hey Girls,

 I promised in my last post that I would do a makeup look featuring the gorgeous Divine lipstick  from Covergirl. I kept the eye makeup simple and allowed the lips to be the focal point of the look...

CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Colour -Divine

I have always wanted to get M.A.C Heroine lipstick that was launched with the  Reel Sexy Collection, but unfortunately  it was a limited edition , while browsing online I realized that a few  lipsticks were mentioned  as possible dupes for the gorgeous purple hued Heroine, the most talked about dupe of them  all was Covergirl's LipPerfection in Divine #330. The lipstick is a vibrant pinkish- purple shade with a creamy, long lasting finish to the point where it stains your lips and will require a little work to completely remove it.

After viewing numerous  FOTD posts featuring Divine I have come to the realization that this shade of purple is universally flattering  and  I'm absolutely smitten  to point where I feel the need to get a few extra tubes just in case they decide to discontinue it, so ladies I highly suggest if you're on the hunt for a purple lippie then Covergirl's Divine is the best option. 

Stay tuned for a makeup look featuring Covergirl's Divine

Are you a fan of Purple lipsticks?

Dark Bold Lips....

 Dark, vampy lip shades are very  trendy this season and would  be excellent, wearable options  for Halloween parties, here I share my take on this trend by sporting a dark plum lip colour with understated eyes.The star of this show is Jordana Easyshine glossy lip colour in Sugar Plum  which is very moisturizing and equally pigmented . My  makeup routine is pretty much the same as here  with the  exception being the blush (ELF Berry Merry) and   eye makeup.

I hope you guys liked this post
Will you be rocking dark lips this season?

Maybelline Colossal Cat Eye Volum' Express mascara

Some time ago I picked up the Maybelline Colossal Cat Eye Volum'  Express waterproof mascara in glam black and after giving it a try here are my thoughts...

Product Features: The packaging describes this mascara as having a" collagen  formula and a claw brush which  plump and  spike out lashes at the corner for the  wild cat eye look."

Overall Experience: This mascara is fairly  good but I don't think it matches up  to my Maybelline Falsies Flared. It does however  offer some amount of volume, captures the lashes at the corners to an extent but doesn't give the "spiked effect" like the packaging suggested. It  is also excellent for  bottom lashes due to small size of the wand.I thought my lashes would be more defined and separated but I guess my expectations were too high. In closing this mascara will not be my go-to product of choice and I will be sticking to my Maybelline Falsies Flared mascara .

Have you girls tried this mascara, if so what are your thoughts?

Review- Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Powder

Hello Lovelies,

I have oily, acne-prone skin and thus I  have always been on the hunt for a good oil control/setting  powder.After doing some research I decided to give the Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking  Powder a go and I have to admit that this product is pretty good in my opinion....

Product Features: The Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Powder as the name suggests is " a colour- free powder which controls oil, prevents shine and keeps skin matte without drying or changing your foundation shade."

Overall Experience: I love this product hands down, the fact that although its an invisible powder its  not flat white... it has  some amount of  pigmentation and it blends beautifully into my skin without  giving that chalky,  "cast- like"  finish.I utilize this product in two ways, first to set the concealer under my eyes  and other areas of my face which I have highlighted and secondly to set my entire makeup.The powder is a keeper in my eyes because you can apply it numerous times and there is no product buildup it just simply mattifies my face without altering my makeup.In terms of oil control it gets a passing grade in my book as  it does keep shine at bay for a good period of time.The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that its so messy.... but isn't that the case with all loose powders so this aspect can be overlooked.In conclusion the Black Opal powder is an excellent product and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking into purchasing a oil control/setting powder.

Think Pink....

October as you all may know is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I would do a few posts dedicated to the cause...first up a post featuring LA Colors nail polish in the shade Electric Charge.

I went a bit further by adding some pink microbeads for my accent finger to create the 'Caviar'effect

I'm imploring you all to support the cause in your own way whether by making a donation to organizations in your area , participating  in a walkathon or by simply wearing pink...

Thanks a million for reading

Scarlet Ibis...

Hey Ladies,

 I promised from my previous post to share a makeup look with M.A.C Scarlet Ibis from the Marilyn Munroe Collection. I complimented my bold lip colour  with contoured cheeks.The trick I utilized to make this lipstick work for my skin tone was basically using a brown lip liner to line my lips, followed by a deep red liner to fill in the rest  and then I slowly built up the colour with the lipstick.

Milani Pressed  Powder- Pecan
Sacha Blush  Perfect Bronze ( contour)
Jordana Blush - Coral Sandy beach ( gives the perfect glow)
Black Radiance Mosaic Bronzer- Summer Shimmer ( Holy grail)-Highlight
