My Valentine's Day Gifts
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! It's always been a special holiday for Tyler and I since back in high school our first "date" was the Sweetheart Dance junior year. I wonder if we hadn't had this holiday if he would've gone ahead and asked me out! So I know some people don't like Valentine's Day, but I'm grateful for the role it played in my life :)
Anyway, Tyler got me some chocolates (YAY) and also the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes collection and the new Air Buffed BB Creme (he asked me for some ideas!) I used both of those products in my look yesterday, and those of you who watched on Ustream already know that! :) I'm not really prepared to do a review just yet, but my initial reaction on the BB Creme is not so great... I expected better coverage and blendability but I'll keep playing with it. Let's just say I supplemented it with plenty of concealer and powder :)
I am really enjoying the Boudoir Eyes collection! I'm a big fan of purple, taupe, and grey- and this palette combines all of those tones. There are 3 completely matte shades, a couple of satin finishes, several shimmery colors and one (the black) with actual sparkle in it.
This palette DOES have some similarities to the Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons collection, and when I do a more in-depth review, I'll compare the two. The names are a little risque, but what did you expect? It's the Boudoir Eyes collection! Let's just hope this blog post doesn't get censored for adult content or something LOL!
For this look, I used Lap Dance on the lid, French Tickler in the outer corner, Voulez-Vous in the crease, and then I blended that shade out with Sugar Walls... as you can see, the result is a slightly warmer shade than I expected in the upper part of the crease, but I really like it. In The Buff is my highlight under the brow, and under the eye I blended French Tickler and Lap Dance. I did a very pronounced winged liner with Jordana FabuLiner, lined my waterline with black pencil, and used Salon Perfect Demi Wispies false lashes. Stay tuned to the blog & my channel for more info on these new Too Faced products! Oh, and on my lips I'm wearing IT Cosmetics Lip Butter in Darling topped with NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe in VIP.
- Posted a new video- a review on Wet n Wild's Coverall Foundation & Powder!
- Sipping on some delicious Powerade Zero- Fruit Punch flavor.
- Do you ever undo your makeup look toward the end of the day & just re-do it for fun? I sometimes do, and it's really fun if you don't have to go anywhere and just let yourself go wild. It's a good time to play with those super colorful Coastal Scents palettes with a zillion eyeshadows in them.
- I made Tyler some cupcakes to go along with his Valentine's Day gift. They were cherry chip with rainbow chip frosting. Holy cow are they good!! Not that I would take one... I mean, they were his gift ;)
