Happy Holidays Everyone



So sorry for the lack of updates, I am battling with a bad case of Bronchitis and the Flu at the same time, plus getting all these packages in the mail, that I have not had the time to go through anything to write a review, plus I do not to swatch and do any looks while I am sick to prevent the products from being icky.
On the way I have these to review:
Liptick Queen sets
Tarte Lipsurgence set
GlamourDollEyes shadows
Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Nail Polishes
Avant Garde Nail Polishes
Laura Gellar stacked set
Bare Minerals stacked shadows

SO those are up on the chopping block for next week.
Stay tuned!


EOTD (Eye Of the Day) Featuring Glamourdolleyes

I am a huge comic nerd, I love Heroic comics of awesome superheroes that save people in need and decided to do an #eotd
*eye of the day*
What colors do you think of when you hear the word "HERO"?
I see stunning Superman Blue's, Radiant Spiderman Red's and Amazonian Wonder Woman Gold's!!
Colors that surely POP and bring attention.
So my bold creation with the amazing GlamourDollEyes pigments in
  • Bird?Plane!- Bright shimmering cool blue
  • Light Speed: Shimmering cool Gold
  • Spider-Sense: Deep Red/Burgundy with Golden sheen
So for this look I used a MAC 239 shadow brush to apply the pigments and a MAC 217 blending brush, and to create the perfect crease I used a MAC 266 Liner edged brush to make sure the colors stayed in a solid line.

To create this blue lid I slightly wet the 239 brush and patted the pigment on the lid  for a more pigmented look then slightly blended towards the middle of my lid for a drift effect.

Then I used the same brush and placed in the half middle of the eye into the corner of the eye.
I used the same brush to create an arched red over the entire brow bone and crease bringing it outward to meet the blue.
To finish the colors I placed the gold on the upper brow bone under the eyebrow for a sheer glow.

To finish this eye I used a Liquid pen liner from LORAC and Benefit Mascara winging out the liner for a dramatic effect.

And that is the eotd that I have dubbed


Hope you enjoy

Novembers Featured MUA "Britni Bloodshed"

All Photos Credit and Copyrighted to Britni Bloodshed Of Shedding Skin Effects


My name is Britni, or otherwise known as Shedding Skin Effects. I've always had an affinity for horror and gore, and in my opinion there can never be enough blood. I started experimenting with makeup and special effects work when I was 16 but only ever used myself as a canvas. It wasn't until about a year ago that I opened myself up to the idea of making this into a potential business and working events or for personal hire. Ever since I created Shedding Skin Effects, the door of opportunity has swung wide open. I'm lucky enough to have the support of many amazing artists to let me showcase my work through their media outlets being photography, modeling, performing or blogging. I recently began making masks and the popularity of this aspect is shocking. I couldn't be happier doing what I do, I've found my passion and I'm lucky enough to live it out. The face and body are our greatest canvasses. We have the ability to conform ourselves into any character we choose, with a little help. Let me help you "Shed Your Skin"!

Here is some of her amazing work!

As a MUA and FX Artist myself I really admire her work. WHen I seen her page on facebook, I just had to add her and ask her to be on my Blog.
She is seriously an inspiration  
While her work can be quite beautiful, it can be truly spooky and amazing!

GlamourDollEyes Halloween Collection 2013

Yea, so I seen a post from Zadidoll about the upcoming halloween collection from GDE a little over a week ago and jumped right on that.  I bought the 2 shadow collections which contains 4 shadows each in the perfectly adorable black bags with gold stars. Great for the theme
Anyways, when I got them in the mail, I fell head over heels and nearly cried over the fact when I went to get more, my fave color was SOLD OUT!  Tardy to the party I guess.
So here are the pictures of them in the bags and the Swatches! 

From left to right
  • Arsenic: a Glowing metallic copper
  • Grave Robber: s shimmering black with brown undertones, maybe gold
  • Funeral Parlor: a deep plum shimmery purple
  • Zombie Bride: a deeper green than FrankenGlamour but with golden yellow undertone
  • Hearse Ride: a Shimmering midnight black with silver undertones
  • Bella Donna: a lovely teal blue with a brighter blue shimmer
  • Parlor Tricks: a deep Lilac with silver sheen
  • Bone Voyage: a bright silver with white shimmer

 As you can see, these are highly pigmented and perfect for halloween or actually any day for me since I am a spooky little one.
I don't know if any of these are available anylonger. 

Hope you enjoyed

Happy Halloween!!!!

GlamourDollEyes IG Shadows and more.

So I have been going bananas over Glamourdolleyes shadows. They are simply the best pigments I have tried next to MAC.  And as I have said before, I don't usually do pigments or loose shadows.
But here I am with yet another blog with more swatches of goodness for you eyecandy viewing pleasure.

These here are the IG (Instagram Girls) shadow collection made by girls on IG.  They were on sale so I bought alot, plus more is on it's way *I know, I am a makeup-a-holic*

Here are the swatches for these colors that I have so far!

From left to right:
  • Mermaid Kisses: A lovely very metallic and shimmery purple that reminds me of an amethyst
  • HayGirlHayy: An aquatic turquoise blue, this just pops at you very Caribbean oceanic
  • Mermaid Dreams: A shimmery aquatic green that looks like the fin of a mermaid
  • Vamp: A sexy Matte brick red that screams dried blood. This looks amazing for fall & holidays
These are so darned pigmented you barely need any to get this quality and this is with NO PRIMER!
Can you imagine having these colors over pigment or a NYX jumbo milk pencil?!

I love these so far and have been using these to create a watercolor effect on my eyes with a small dab on my finger of Bi Facial Lancome makeup remover and smudging so lightly, it creates this awesome transformation that looks like a watercolor painting!

Next up!

Regular shadows for GDE
I seen this and just had to try them, such beautiful colors!
Take a Look!!

So pretty right?
From left to right
  • Dusk: A deep blue with lighter blue shimmer
  • Glam Girl: A soft shimmery purple with maybe lavender or silver undertones
  • FrankenGlamour: Such a toxic green! I love it. Voltageous! This has a slight yellow shimmer
  • Angel Wings: A beautiful soft radiant white shimmer with silver undertones
These are A-mazing...  Just saying

I enjoy the tarte line tremendously and have been busy buying alot of their products

Such as this
These come with 5 lovely eyeliners and a small eyeliner sharpener which comes in handy
The packaging was super adorable and very festive
I have been using these like mad.
Usually Black on the Top lid and another color on the waterline for a smoldering look!

Josie Maran Argan Bright & Beautiful 6-pc. Natural Beauty Coll Fair/Light

I have never tried any of the Josie Maran products before, and seen this set on QVC, I was anxious to try it because you hear so many good things about "Argan Oil" since I have dry skin I figured this could be a miracle product for me lol.
Anyways, onto whats inside the big box!

 Starting from the top then moving Left to Right
  • Josie Maran Foundation Brush in 001
  • Argan Oil .5 FL ounces/15 ML
  • Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation 1 fl oz/ 30 ML
  • Argan Brightening Face Balm with brush .30 oz/ 8.4g
  • Coconut Watercolor Cheek Jelly in "Island Pink" .18oz/5.1g
  • Argan Love your Lips Hydrating Lipstick in "Tickled Pink" .12oz
Lets get some Close Up's Shall we?

So lets get started.

I did try this as soon as I opened the box
The Argan oil feels like heaven on your skin when it needs to be quenched
Not too oily, not too watery, just right and my skin literally soaks it up but it leaves a baby soft feeling that makes you keep touching your face

Next I tried the Foundation with the brush.
The brush!!!  So soft, like whispers on your skin during application and it does apply well
The foundation comes out looking like white liquid but after going into your skin, it changes to your shade leaving a bright healthy looking glow
Good coverage as well, I would say a sheer medium coverage with a dewy look

The brightening balm is like a halo pressed into a compact
It is a wonderful highlighter on the skin.
Use this on the high planes or areas that need a bit more coverage
It is very creamy and not heavy
The brush is super soft and works well to apply

The cheek jelly is very sheer, almost no real pigmentation
It applies like a jelly stain but looks like a natural flush on the cheeks, it was so light that when I used the camera for a swatch it would not show.
I have to do a full face to show you what it does
It is beautiful when applied

The Lipstick is also very, very light
More so you get the oil than a color but it leaves your lips feeling lush and hydrated but with a hint of a lip flush color

In all I give this kit a 9/10
only because I thought the colors in the jelly and lipstick would be more bright, but I prefer it this way as you can look Au Natural
Retail Price: 85.00



ANNOUNCEMENT !!! New things to come from ASB!

Things have been very busy around here lately, new shipments coming in nearly everyday and new idea's popping around like bubbles in my brain.  I do have quite a few more reviews coming this week and the following weeks to come, but!!  Yes there is a BUT!

I have been pondering about a few things here and there. As you can see, I am a makeup lover.
I love being a Makeup Artist and MUB (Makeup Blogger)  but one of my dreams have been to start my own line of cosmetics!
I am a Vegan so of course my products would be Organic Au Natural..

First off on my list is to start early next year on this project, I am going to start crafting Lipsticks and Lip Butters in super cute tins that are easy to use. Don't get me wrong, I love tubes, but they melt, get messy and break easily, so why not tins?

My tins will have my personal insignia on the lip, possibly as a sticker, who knows, but the lipsticks will come with a mini lipstick brush for easy application.

The lip butters will be flavored, some will not be.  I will have 3-4 lines of different kinds
A Tinted Balm Collection
A Nude/Clear Flavored Balm Collection
A Kid friendly Tasty Collection
A Pure Fresh Collection.

I don't want to give out all the details yet of what will be coming, but it is going to be an amazing thing.

Also they will be very, very affordable and there will be samples available too, and I will be doing an Affiliates Program for other gurus and MUA's to affiliate me and get free products to review.

So that is the Major news that is going on right now.
I have a huge list compiled of products I need to buy to create this amazing line.
I hope to get a great following and good customers along the way.

And if anyone want's to become part of this and give me idea's or colors they would like made, feel free to contact me on the nav bar contact form.
If you make the color, the name of the balm/stick is up to you.

Thanks all and Have a Safe and Happy Halloween


Quick Tip: Make your own Sensitive skin facial exfoliate and Lip scrub

Let me just start off by saying in the winter months ahead, most peoples skin does tend to dry out and carry more dead skin than usual.
So I decided to give you my personal remedy that I make at home for you to try
This is for sensitive skin and is much lighter formulated than most exfoliates and safer without any additives

What you will need:
  • Natural Sugar (Not processed or granulated) You can find this in most health food stores
  • Lemongrass Extract (Meaning the fluid of the herb) Also at health food stores
  • Chamomile Extract
  • Lavender Extract
  • Coconut Oil
Now this specific recipe will last you for a while if you jar it correctly. You can buy small mason jars at your local Walmart or stores similar

Mind you, I prefer to use all organic materials and the Coconut oil you can get at Walmart called "Organix"

In a small bowl mix half a cup of sugar
Add 3 teaspoons of heated coconut oil (25 seconds in the microwave)
Add 1 teaspoon of lavender extract
Add 2 Teaspoons of Chamomile extract
Add 3 teaspoons of Lemongrass extract

Blend vigorously to mix ingredients well

If you have oily skin eliminate the Coconut oil and use Dried Orange peel ground up
It eliminates the oil by absorption

Add your mixture to a mason jar to save and store in a cool dry place

To use, swab a quarter sized amount onto your finger and rub gently but firm into your skin in clockwise motions to allow the dead skin to come off and new cells to rise.
Rinse with cool water and pat dry with a towel

Lip Scrub:

In a small container or bowl mix 2 Tablespoons of sugar
Add 1 tablespoon of heated coconut oil
Add 1 teaspoon of Peppermint oil/extract
mix well and apply to lips
to achieve a deep scrub to remove flakes, use a toothbrush is circular motion for 1 minute then rinse with warm water.
Add a lip balm afterwards.
This also helps plump lips especially with the peppermint

Hope you all enjoy this at home treat for skin and lips
More to come soon
