Makeup HAUL!

Hello girls! I haven’t been feeling very well lately but i still wanted to post something tonight for you all<3 Recently my boyfriend took me out and wanted to spoil me a little since i haven’t been feeling too hot, so i bought…. A bunch of makeup! For myself and YOU! I’ll be doing a giveaway next month with some of the stuff i picked up, i’ll show you what i bought for us! 😀

Here is what i purchased for my October giveaway for one of you lovely ladies!

I’m thinking this one will be International.. Two of FLOWER’s Powder to creme blushes, in TT1 & TT2 (a bright pink and a muted coral color.) A beautiful eyeshadow chubby in a gorgeous deep royal purple shade, and most likely some more stuff i pick up from here to the date the giveaway will start. So keep checking for it 😉

Now here are a few things i picked up for myself to play around with:

Two Hard Candy Highlight & Contour Cheek Duo’s. LEFT: Angel Face RIGHT: Island Glow

These guys are so gorgeous in person just as a swatch. The colors are so sheer and picks up light beautifully. I have a picture but it really doesn’t do it much justice, you would just have to trust me on this one. I am so eager to use these, i have no doubt they will be gorgeous on the cheekbones. Keep look out for a post on these exclusively!

Let’s move onto these L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR Pressed Eyeshadows in “Iced Latte” & “Perpetual Purple,” and a beautiful Infallible Lipstick in “Everlasting Plum“…

These shadows are GORGEOUS! SO pigmented and SO soft, they feel like a pillowy cushion inside the jar. I would definitely recommend these to all of you as they have an array of amazing colors, and the best part is that they behave like the Maybelline color tattoo creme shadows. They are not creamy at all, but they last forever. I have swatches of these below with the other eyeshadows i purchased.

Now the L’Oreal Infallible lipstick! I’m in LOVE. This is such a fall color i cant even begin to tell you, it is a deep smashed berry color that looks SO dark in the tube but just comes to life as soon as you apply it! It is like a bright orchid purple, it is stunning. This would be beautiful on any skin tone

Everlasting Plum

It has a gorgeous bright berry/fall tone that makes this color very special and a must have for Autumn.

Now, i have some more stuff from FLOWER!

Starting with beautiful eyeshadow palette in “Eye-sea-you” and a Blush/Bronzer Duo in “Glow Baby Glow.”

image

These colors in ALL of these pans, the shadows and the blush/bronzer, are just insanely soft and smooth to the touch. They feel like velvet. This formula is amazing and the colors are beautiful! Let me show you some swatches, the first two colors are the L’Oreal shadows from earlier.

image

The two horizontal swatches at the top are the blush & bronzer duo.


As you can see all of these colors are stunning & unique. That green shadow from the FLOWER palette is like a mossy gold color, i can’t wait to play around with these palettes. These are all just straight up swatches with no primer or anything, so with primer these colors will be much more vibrant and pop! I will definitely be doing a makeup look with these soon. So be sure to check it out and comment!

I picked up this gorgeous melon colored lipgloss from FLOWER as well:

Quick compare! FLOWER cream eyeshadow VS. Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to do a quick compare & review on a FLOWER cosmetics color play cream eyeshadow vs. A Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow. These both have their pros and cons, since cream shadows in general can be a tricky thing to use. Sometimes the color is just not as pigmented as you’d expect from a creamy shadow, the overall texture may make it harder for you to apply, it doesn’t last quite as long as normal eyeshadow.. Well, hopefully this review will shed some light on the cream eyeshadow situation.

image

The colors i will be using as examples today are Maybelline’s “Bad To The Bronze” and FLOWER’s “Flirty Floret.”

image

Bad To The Bronze” is the pot shown towards the bottom, and “Flirty Floret” is the one towards the top. I would definitely call Maybelline’s more of a champagne/light taupe color, while FLOWER’s is a true bronze brown. As you can see from the picture above, FLOWER’s shadow has more of a whipped light texture, while Maybelline’s is somewhat pressed into the jar making it a bit harder to get a good amount of product.

Here are some swatches:

FLOWER PROS:

  • Highly pigmented gorgeous shimmery color.
  • Whipped texture makes it nice to apply.
  • A little goes a LONG way.
  • If there is creasing going on, you can easily smooth it out and fix it.

Maybelline PROS:

  • Longevity
  • Smudge/Smear Proof

It seems like what one is lacking, the other one has covered. So if you are looking for a pigmented easy to apply cream shadow, i would suggest you go with FLOWER’s. If you’re looking for a cream shadow that stays put but isn’t as pigmented & and you don’t mind that any creasing is harder to correct, go with Maybelline’s.

Thanks for reading!
