Nails Of The Day (NOTD) Sinful Colors AMETHYST and FRENZY

This was a fun mani. I kept it simple. I only added glitter on the ring fingers and thumbs.
I did my standard base, 3 coats of color and Seche Vite top coat.

Nails Of The Day (NOTD) - Sinful Colors ENDLESS BLUE

I love this beautiful blue! It has to be my favorite by far!
It was so opaque, I could have gotten away with applying just 1 coat.
However, I am accostomed to applying 3. Old habits die hard.

Base: China Glaze Strong Adhesion
Color: Sinful Colors ENDLESS BLUE x3
Top: Seche Vite

This mani is old, but I wanted to capture it to share before I changed it.

Would you wear this color?

Lips of the Day Featuring Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick

This beautiful light lavender is an Amplified. This is my favorite formula of lipstick from MAC Cosmetics.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of this lipstick goes to help men women and children living with AIDS.
I do not plan to purchase the gloss because it looks too milky to me. I prefer to top mine with Revlon Lilac Pastelle Lipgloss.

I am wearing this over Make Up For Ever #15.
It is topped with MAC Cosmetics GOLDYROCKS Dazzleglass.

e.l.f. 100 Eyeshadow Palette

I picked up this palette for my teenaged daughter from Sears. It was on sale for $9.98! I believe that is the cheapest I've ever seen it. I have used e.l.f. eyeshadows in the past. I think they are ok. They work so long as I have a good primer and a secondary base. Not a bad price, right?

Do you own this palette?

LORAC PRO Eyeshadow Palette

I have been drooling over this palette for several months. After careful consideration, I just decided to buy it.
I already own several neutral palettes. However, this is an outstanding value. The quality of LORAC eyeshadows is outstanding. They are extremely pigmented. You do not need to use a ton of product to get good color pay off.

The case is waxcardboard. It comes with a mirror and a sample of LORAC eyeshadow primer.
I consider it a great value because of the quality and number of shadows contained therein. It seems like it would be great for travel. It sells for $42
The palette contains an equal number of matte and shimmery eyeshadows. There are sixteen in total.
They are very creamy in texture. The Taupe and hte mauve barely show up on my skin tone. I had to swatch them twice. The black is not the blackest I have ever seen, but it is suitable for deepening my crease.

Left to right...White, Cream, Taupe, Light Pink, Mauve, Sable, Espresso, Black

Left to right...Nude, Champagne, Gold, Light Bronze, Pewter, Garnet, Deep Purple, Slate

I LOVE THIS PALETTE! I am so glad I finally broke down and purchased it. I got mine from HSN.
It was sold out on Sephora's website.

Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadows

Walmart Display

I procrastinated about purchasing these new additions to my collection.
That is because they are permanent.
I did not find them at Walgreens as some have. However I did find them at my local Walmart.
They retail for $5.94. I was thrilled to see they had all of the colors in stock so that I could purchase them and feature them here on the blog.

My most desired color 65 GOLD RUSH did not let me down.

I was also eager to pick up 75 ELECTRIC BLUE.

The other colors in the collection are





All of the colors are shimmery metallic texture. However the GOLD RUSH has chunkier flecks than the other colors. I do not mind this at all because of the color! It seems one has to build the color to make it opaque. That is fine with me. I do not mind a little work for fantastic results.

These wore on me for 10 hours.
I did not test beyond that. I do not intentionally sleep in makeup.
As my eyelids are super oily, I always use an eyeshadow primer before laying down a secondary base.
I use this product as a secondary base to enhance colored eyeshadows. I set them with loose or pressed eyeshadow pigments.

Have you purchased these beauties?
