FOTD: Color blocking

Okay, for some reason I had in my head that I wanted to ‘color block’ my eyes. I chose coral and purple to get the job done. Here’s what happened:

Illamasqua Skin Base (#14)
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer in 01 (as powder)
Armani Sheer Bronzer in #2 (as blush)
MAC Paint Pot in Coral Crepe (lids)
MAC Pigment in Electric Coral (lids)
Chanel Vanities/dark purple (crease/under waterline)
Chanel Vanities/light purple (above crease)
Bobbi Brown Violet Gel Liner (lashline)
Sumita Eye Pencil (waterline)
Chanel Intimitable Intense Mascara in Purple
Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick in Bashful Blush

FOTD: Le Metier De Beaute

I dug into some of my Metier goodies from that last purchase. One side note: My eyeshadow in Thunder is DONE. Somehow the pigment just spilled everywhere out of the container. I don’t even have enough left to press. So I’m chalking it up to a loss. I’m not sure that these custom palettes are the best idea yet… if the shadows can’t survive the transfer. Next time, I’ll just purchase them as is. The salespeople were awesome to transfer them for me, but I’m pretty sure that these shadows simply aren’t designed to withstand any pressure.

Anyway, onto the FOTD:

Murad Face Primer
Guerlain Tinted Moisturizer (brunettes)
Chanel Soho Story Highlighter/Blush
MAC eyeshadow in Espresso (brows)
Le Metier de Beaute Eyeshadow in Fig (lids)
Le Metier Eyeshadow in Peachy Keen (browbone
Sumita Eye Pencil in Manasha (waterline)
Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
Le Metier de Beaute Lipstick in Rio De Janiero

IMATS: The Haul

So here’s what came home with me from this year’s IMATS:

I told you guys that NAKED got all my money. I bought the deluxe set of creams, which translates into four full size and four travel size containers of the cream. Allegedly, you can use it EVERYWHERE and even use it to boost your own products. So, that’s what I’ve been doing… I’ve pretty much mixed it with everything, and in the last 24 hours I’ve put it in my hair, on my face, and on my body. It’s chock full of fabulous ingredients (aloe barbadensis, melaluca honey), so I feel very safe using it.

So far, so good.

Bronze Bonanza from Napoleon Perdis. Nothing in this set is actually bronze, but whatever. It was 20 bucks…and it’ll do in a pinch.

Total glitterbomb. But I can see this making a nice eyeshadow. I’ll figure it out.
The lipgloss isn’t really bronze either. But again… it’s whatever.
They gave me this gloss for filling out an information sheet.
It’s a decent summer gloss. And hey, it was free. I am NOT complaining.
DEX Lip Gloss in Columbus Avenue Copper.
Kevyn Aucoin Diaphonous Radiance Powder.

NAKED Cosmetic Pigment Stack in Sierra Nevada. These pigments are safe for use EVERYWHERE, including eyes, lips and even nails. MAC… I’m looking at you. NAKED is over here showing you all the way up!

A lovely gift from the lady at Crown Brushes. Bianca and I were among the last to leave, and the IMATS people were pushing us out the door. The owner was MORTIFIED and ran after us with a brush each for us. She was so apologetic and sweet. We totally appreciated it.

Bindi and Deep Plum eye pencil from Sumita Beauty. This place is local, and offers a professional discount. Who knew?

Kevyn Aucoin Brush Roll. 
That’s my haul from IMATS! Ciao for now!
