Bright and Beautiful with Sugarpill!

Good morning Zombies!

Yesterday, I decided t go all out with the brights, due to it being a really gloomy day here in New Mexico. I figured Sugarpill would fit the bill nicely. I used mostly loose pigments for this vibrant look. I'm quite proud of it.

TFSI as primer
Tick Tock Cosmetics "Milky Way" eyeshadow base
Sugarpill "Decora" blended above crease
Sugarpill ""Darling" patted on to inner/middle lid and blended into lower lash line

Sugarpill "Lumi" as highlight and patted into inner corner of eye
Milani Eye Tech Bold liquid eyeliner in "Black" lid liner
random black liner for waterline and mascara

I hope you liked this as much a I do! Gotta love some bright colors on cloudy days!

Mean Green, FOTD!

Happy Saturday Zombies!

I did a fun but super simple (and sparkly) look yesterday to match the t-shirt I was wearing. (My husband drew the design!) The combination was too pretty NOT to blog about. I'm trying to get better about posting my looks to the blog and not just to Instagram. Sadly, I didn't get pictures with my "real" camera, just my iPhone. But, still. PRETTY!

The Goods:
TFSI as primer
Tick:Tock eyeshadow base in "Milky Way
Fyrinnae "Dragon's Wing" main lid
MAC "Carbon" in crease
Fyrinnae "Electric Stardust" lower lash line
Fyrinnae "Moon Child" as highlight
random liner and mascasra

Candy Floss Brigtening Face Powder

Geek Chic Cosmetics "Benevolent" geek gloss

Have a great day everyone!

Milani ColorSTATEMENT Plums and Berries lipstick, SWATCHES!


I'm excited to present to you the new Milani COLORstatment lipstick in plums and berries. Milani has just recently changed their lipstick packaging and it looks so very classy (and shiny) now! The lipstick formula is also absolutely amazing and oh so pigmented! My swatches are only ONE swipe of the lipstick! This is by FAR my favorite collection of colors from the new formulated lippies. They are all so gorgeous and totally up my alley.

(As always, please click images to view maximum awesome!)

Everything arrived from Milani in this adorable lip case. It strangely reminds me of my lips. hehe

Inside the pretty purple Satin?

Breakdown of colors/formula:
Plumrose: Cream
UptownMauve: Cream
Chilled Brandy: Shimmer
Violet Volt: Metallic
Raspberry Rush: Metallic
Sangria: Matte
Black Cherry: Cream


I adore Chilled Brandy. It's probably my favorite of this lot, followed closely by Uptown Mauve, Plumrose (which is so creamy and pigmented!) and Violet Volt. The Fuchsia lip liner is incredibly creamy and lasts a really long time! Being that Milani is a drugstore brand, I'm really impressed with these lippies. They are on par with more of the higher end lipstick I own, if not more pigmented and creamy. There is a slight fruity smell to them, but in my opinion, it's not terribly overbearing, and I can't stand smelly lip products. Once again, I'm really impressed and love all the pretty colors in this lot.

Milani COLORstatement lipstick can be purchased at participating CVS, Target, Walgreens, Walmart, Kmart, and from the Milani website itself. The new COLORstatment lipstick retail for $5.49 online, but will differ depending on where you purchase them.

Have you snagged a new plum or berry Milani COLORstatement lipstick yet? What colors are catching your eye?

Don't Teal Me You Love Me, FOTD!


TGIF! It's been a long, harrowing week for me. My entire household has been sick. Just today I felt well enough to slap on some makeup and blog about it! It's been too long since a "face of the day" and I really wanted to make it a good one!

Last week I received a small order I'd placed with Darling Girl Cosmetics. Susan has recently come out with an eyeshadow called "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" which tons of my makeup friendlets began lusting over. I knew I had to have it and ordered it promprtly. Susan was kind enough to throw in some extras for me to swatch you for you! Two of the shades (Aristocrat and Dark Forest) will be released very soon, so stay tuned!


Dark Forest is OMFG-awesome!, as is DTMYLM!

And today's look:

Milani's "Uptown Mauve"- full swatches coming soon!

The Goods:
TFSI as primer
Tick:Tock Cosmetics eyeshadow base in "Black Hole"
Darling Girl "DTMYLM" all over main lid
Darling Girl "Aristocrat" blended above crease
Sugar Pill "Poison Plum" blended into crease for depth
Fyrinnae "Moon Child" as highlight
