NYX COSMETICS Faux Black & Faux White Eyeliner Review!

NYX Cosmetics Faux Black Faux White Collection

HOLY CATS! I haven’t seen any information about these anywhere so I’m super excited to share my haul, review and mini tutorial of the new at the drugstore NYX Faux Black and Faux White eyeliner collections! I picked these up last week at Ulta, and I’ve spent a few days playing around with them and I can now say I ADORE THEM! At $8 dollars a pop these are a great deal. The deeper colors are elegant and easy to wear but are definitely not boring, while the pastels are a great alternative to white in your inner rim or to give your inner corner a little boost.  Most exciting- There’s both a RED and a BROWN-BURGUNDY!!! *jumping up and down with excitement* These types of colors are common from expensive luxury and artistry driven brands, so it’s encouraging to see this launch available from an affordable brand! A few of the pastel colors have Colourpop dupes, but the CP liners dried up on me really fast, and I tend to prefer a liner I can sharpen. In addition to swatched of these liners, I decided to also try layering the Kat Von D Alchemist powders over top just for fun! Wow- awesome combo! Bust out those Ulta point, use a coupon and check out these liners!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks

Hi Guys and Dolls!

This is by far my favorite Liquid lipstick formula! I love the whole vibe of the brand- the cheeky names, fun colors, formula, packaging and the applicator are flawless. It don’t stain as bad as other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried, and you can even use it as eyeliner!!  I have four colors now, but I can tell this is just the beginning of a beautiful cosmetic addiction. The next colors on my list are I Am Royalty, Blue Velvet, Drug Lord, Unicorn Blood and Masochist. Watch my video to see them in action!

Blow Pony. That name- omg. Ok confession- I’m naive enough that when I first heard it I though, or like a blow up plastic toy. And then I thought about it and had a OH – DUH! moment. hahaha. Blow Pony is a lovely medium lavender. It’s showing up here a bit lighter than it is is real life, but only just a little bit. I had the hardest time taking pictures of this one, it kept looking too light. The only one I got where it was pretty darn color accurate in the photo below, which is blurry. Whamp Whamp.  _MG_3858

🎵I am Doll Parts. Bad Skin. Doll Heart.🎵 OK so as a girl who was obsessed with HOLE in the 90’s the name of this one is my favorite. I can’t help but think of the music video, and listening to this on my little boombox in my bedroom and being enamored with Courtney Love. This lipstick is a GORGEOUS mauve pink, and as far as application goes, this one applies the easiest- though they are all pretty easy-peasy. This is perhaps one of the most conservative colors in the line- very office appropriate. I was wearing this in my monthly faves video for November.

🎵We’re gonna party like it’s Prom Night! 🎵 Hot pink is my signature, and ever since I went darker with my hair I find it’s more flattering than Red for me. This hot pink is my favorite hot pink lipstick, and let me tell you, I have quite a collection, so that’s a bold statement. The coverage is perfect, the color itself it nearly neon, but has a grounding depth of color that makes it flattering and not just shocking. Every time I wear this several people stop me and want to know what it is. I tell ’em It’s Jeffree Star Baby! On a side note- I’d wanted to pick up Masochist as well since it more of a red/pink and I love that color too. Next time!

Hoe Hoe Hoe. The name slays me and I adore the cranberry red. I’m not sure if if was visible in the video, but here you can see that there is tiny pink and purple micro glitter. It’s less noticeable when you first apply it, but as you talk/ live your life throughout the day it starts to come though.

Makeup Geek Blush: High End Dupes, Swatches & Review

Hey Guys & Dolls!

My Name is Cora, and I’m a blushaholic. No other complexion product make us look more beautiful or more youthful than the perfect cheek color. But I wasn’t always such a blush enthusiast; I remember growing up my mom  always encouraging me to “put on a little blush honey” but as a teen of the 90’s it was très uncool. The washed out look was in, and Blush? Was for old people. Occasionally I’d throw on a bit of Avon Earthen Rose- a lovely bronzer/blush similar to Makeup Geek’s new Infatuation blush. Since then I’ve learned to love and have developed a passion for lovely blush colors. That brings me to the point- one of my fave indie makeup brands, Makeup Geek has recently launched their line of Blush. Makeup Geek is well known for their fantastic eyeshadows and pigments, and have built a reputation for their quality to price ratio. I’m so lucky to review* the entire line of blushes for you and give you an idea of how they dupe some high end blushes!

  • Spellbound: Easy to wear natural warm pink, with a satin finish. On me it almost looks a bit peachy. A great Dupe for Cargo’s Tonga blush.
  • Honeymoon: Sheer natural pink-brown satin with silver glitter. The base color is beautiful & build-able but the glitter is too much for me. Without the glitter it would be a gorgeous everyday color.
  • Hanky Panky: Bright bubblegum pink. In terms of dupes it’s somewhere right in between MAC Dolly Mix & Pinch-O-Peach.
  • Rendezvous: Highly pigmented matte purple-plum. Excellent dupe for the lighter part of MAC Vintage Grape Blush Ombre.
  • Secret Admirer: Pastel, matte lilac. This one might make deeper skin looked washed out. Great one to have to cool down an over-warm blush or to use for layering. Make Up For Ever #9 is more purple & pigmented but close.
  • Head Over Heels: Light cool pink with a silvery pearl, great for layering, gives the skin a lovely glow. The Closest dupe for MAC Giggly Mineralize Blush I’ve seen.
  • First Love: Super pastel pink with subtle pink shimmer. This one looks a bit chalky to me, perhaps because it’s such a pale pastel. I can’t think of a blush dupe but it reminds me of MAC’s Seedy Pearl eyeshadow.
  • Love Affair: Matte deep rose. This will look gorgeous on deeper skintones, lighter skin will want to dilute it with face powder or other wise us a lighter hand. Pinker than MAC Bite of An Apple and Tarte Frisky, Similar to Milani Bella Rosa.
  • Infatuation: Matte peachy brown, sort of like a bronzer/blush hybrid. Very close to Avon Earthen Rose, MAC Coppertone; similar but less yellow compared to MAC Solar Riche bronzer.
  • Summer Fling: Deep matte coral with a sheer finish. This being a little lighter in pigmentation makes it easier to wear & build up- deep skinned ladies & gents- look into this! This is less red compared to Mac Devlish.
  • Romance: Very shimmery warm peach-pink with golden shimmer. Some will say this is a Dupe for NARS Orgasm, but this is warmer and less pink compared to Orgasm. Cargo’s Rome blush is similar but more orange. It’s like a NARS Orgasm and Cargo Rome hybrid.
  • Smitten: Sheer matte light cantaloupe. Great for layering or for giving a lighter orange look- great if you’re too timid to try a full-on orange. This would be pretty as an all-over face warmer diluted with face powder.
  • Bliss: Soft Coral Peach. GORGEOUS! This one is more flattering on me personally compared to Smitten due to the blight pink tone; it looks lovely on it’s own on as a layering blush. This one isa  great dupe for MAC Melba blush.
