Hey Guys and Dolls! I hope everyone is doing well! we’re having out first warm day since we moved and it’s really nice. I was starting to think the sun had abandoned me! I’m sorry about the lack of blog posts/tutorials/video lately, but you know I’ve been moving/unpacking settling in. The new place is great! After living in such a tight space for so long, it amazing how big a one bedroom townhouse can feel. Maybe I’ll do a house-tour on Ghettoccino (my personal blog channel) once we’re all done. Anyway…
MsCuppyCakes is a online store that sells all sorts of NYX Makeup, and Red Cherry Lashes!!! When I “discovered” this website earlier this spring, I squealed with delight! You guys (and dolls) may not know this, but I really do love NYX (pronounced Nick’s, for those who don’t know ^_^). Most of my blushes are NYX, and I have a ton of NYX eye shadows (I tend to forget about them since they are in a drawer, note to self: Get an empty palette for NYX shadows). You all know I love the Jumbo Pencils (especially the cream ones, like “Milk” not the ones with shimmer) But I think the lipliners are right on par with MAC (I have 4 or 5 and only one MAC lip liner, so there you go) . I actually prefer my NYX white eyeliner to my MAC Fascinating EyeKohl for lining my waterline since it isn’t as stark white. Over all, I like NYX, lol!
So, when MsCuppyCakes asked me if I’d like to do a review on some new Pearl Mainia’s I jumped at the chance! They never have these in the one local store that sells NYX! I was very surprised to like them so much! Just look at these babies! SO pretty! For 95 CENTS! amazing. Now I’ll agree that the bottles are kind of a pain. They remind me of the pigment vials that MAC does around the holidays. What I do with those, is a get 5 gram sample jars are pour them out into that, so they are easier to use. I’m going to do the same with these, I just need to pick up some jars. And the glitters! OMG! I love the glitters! And again, these are dirt cheap, at $1.25!!! I have a video coming up on how to make your own glitter liner, and I’m SO going to use Hot Gold! and how HOT would “Hot Pink” or “Purple” glitter be on you lips? Pretty effing hot, I’d say! lol!
I did learn though, that taking swatch pictures of glitter is pretty much impossible, but I tried:
You can KIND OF see Hot Gold and Hot Pink, sort of see Disco Ball, but the magic of the Purple one is lost. So sad. Now The lashes are really cool, even though I broke mine!!! I forgot to mention this in the video, but apparently Red Cherry lashes are made by the same Manufacturer as MAC Lashes! I’m so bummed that I broke mine, but they are stiil cool, and fun to have in my stash (I know, I’m weird)
Orange Zest Pearl
Hot Pink Glitter
I’d definitely say these are a go! I mean, they are super duper cheap, and aside from the bottles I have no complaints! Her Prices are I believe lower that cherry culture (except when they have those mega sales, but I’ve heard that shipping can take FOREVER for them. I’ve never ordered from them, so I can’t say) But I believe MsCuppyCakes’ everyday prices are better.
Stay “tubed” this weekend, I have a how-to apply False lashes video that is really truly different than what you normally see! I hope you will all give this method a shot!Have a great week everyone!
