Today I pulled out my Sugarpill Cosmetics colours and decided to feature one of my newer colours that I haven't played around with too too much yet: Decora! Wow is it even gorgeous. The greenish glitter in it made me want to pair it with Lumi and then I wanted to use Poison Plum too...so I just went with my instincts! Here is what I came up with:
Random Eyeshadow Primer
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in John Doe
Inglot 390 Matte in the crease
Sugarpill's Poison Plum in the crease
Sugarpill's Decora on the lid
Sugarpill's Lumi in the duct
Sugarpill's Velocity in the deep crease/lower lash line
A bit of Sugarpill's Afterparty on the inner portion of the lower lash line
Sugarpill's Tako for a brow highlight
Sugarpill's Bulletproof for liner
A bit of Zuzu Luxe Liquid Liner along the lash line
Zuzu Luxe Leaf Eyeliner on the lower waterline
Gabriel Color Mascara in Black on the lower lashes
Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara on the top lashes
What are some of your favorite Sugarpill colours?? I'm very excited because I have the newest three pressed vegan shadows (from the Cold Chemistry collection) coming to me after their Black Friday sale! Weeeeeeee! :)
This one does a bit of double duty. I had posted this look in the Madd Style Cosmetics FB Group Page a few days ago and several of the ladies asked that I do a tutorial for it. Luckily it's also almost the exact same (but different colours) as the look I did when the lovely Lauren asked that I do a look/tutorial using 'Ello and an MSC matte grey. As I mention in the video, this kind of look can be changed up depending on the colour you want to use. But as long as you stick to the matte colour in the crease, you'll end up with the "same" look but it will be tailored to the colours you want to use. :)
If you want to find out how I achieved the below look, then please take a look at my "talkie" tutorial!
As a reminder, here are the supplies I used:
And here are a couple more shots of the look:
Here's the similar look I did using: Like a Virgin (in the duct), All that Giltters (in the innner and outer lid), 'Ello (in the center of the lid), Touch of Grey and a matte black (in the crease/lower lash line) and Psyhic Paper (brow highlight)
I recently made my first purchase on the Sephora (.ca) website and decided to film a little video of me opening up my box! As I mention in the video, I convinced myself to make this purchase because it pushed me into VIB status and when I made the purchase it was the last day of this fall's VIB 20% event! Getting stuff from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (and Tarte) for 20% off was too much for me to resist!
If you're curious to see what I picked up, please take a look! :)
Annnnd. I managed to snap some shots of most of the things!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Gel Liner in Black
OCC Metallic Lip Tar in Pris
This is taken with a flash to show Pris (otherwise it wouldn't have showed up in natural light--especially not my dying light. And you can see I put WAY TOO MUCH gel liner on the brush. I tried rubbing my arm afterward (should have taken a picture of that) and it stayed pretty well. I may be impressed!)
OCC Skin Conceal in Y1
OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in John Doe
OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in Bauhaus
GAH! They were SO CREAMY. I'd have to use less on my eye, I think, otherwise I can imagine a crease-fest happening. I'm super impressed with the pigmentation on these though. Wow!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Primer in Park Ave Princess
Park Ave Princess is swatched to the right of the creme colour concentrates
Have you tried any of these products? If so, what do you think of them? Did you take advantage of the VIB sale? If so, what'd *you* get?! :)
I am back with my next phototurial! I was recently chatting with my friend Jackie and asked her what kind of eye makeup she pairs with OCC's Lip Tar in Black Dahlia--she said she did it with a teal winged liner and I decided to try my hand at something similar.
The result was this look:
If you'd like to find out how I achieved this look using Madd Style Cosmetics piggies, then please, keep on reading. :)
It's time for another tutorial, don't you think?? I recently discovered that my local Sephora now has a full Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics end cap display (before they only had random Lip Tars available in the tubs at the line-up). Colour me much enthused about this! I was really looking forward to checking out the Lip Tars from the new Moderncraft collection and my local Sephora managed to get the colours in pretty quickly! Hooray!! I picked up Role Play and Black Metal Dahlia and went home on my merry way.
This look was inspired by my hardcore desire to use Black Metal Dahlia as soon as possible! Mo, the creator of Madd Style Cosmetics, suggested I pair it with some reds and purples and that is what I did! It is a very bold lip and bold eye combo, using none other than Madd Style Cosmetics pigments, and although I likely wouldn't wear this out on Monday morning--it's perfect for a sultry evening, I think!

I am fairly certain that one cannot ever have too many eyeshadows from Inglot. The quality of their shadows is just incredible and the colour range is essentially unbeatable. If you want mattes, they have them! If you want glittery ones, they have it! If you want metallics, yep, got them! Satins? SURE!
Recently I was on vacation and visited the Inglot counter in San Francisco (and then made a last minute pit-stop at the Inglot counter in Alderwood Mall in Washington) and I came back with the following goodies!
Top Row: 60 AMC (a beautiful marigold yellow with slight shimmer), 369 Matte (a neato blurple, perfectly matte), 134 R (three shades of satin blue) and 135 R (three shades of seafoam green).
Middle Row: 317 Matte (a gorgeous matte blue based green), 610 D.S (a bright green with gold glitter), 611 D.S (a deep yellow based green with gold glitter), 414 Pearl (a dark green with a green glowly pearl), 418 Pearl (also a dark green, but this ones pearl is more of a teal/blue glow).
Bottom Row: 387 Matte (a matte grey/taupe), 448 Pearl (a super metallic/pearly bright silver), 471 D.S (an interesting taupe-y brown with a green cast to it) and 402 Pearl (a pink taupe that is said to be a dupe of MAC's Satin Taupe).
And here they are swatched!
First Row (top to bottom): 317 Matte, 369 Matte, 60 AMC
Second Row: 414 Pearl, 611 D.S, 610 D.S.
Third Row: 448 Pearl, 387 Matte, 418 Pearl
Last Row: 402 Pearl, 471 D.S.
The rainbow satins were tough to photograph. They have an amazing glow to them that just wouldn't show up in photographs!! What happens, essentially, is that when you mix all three of the colours together, you get the middle colour (which makes sense!!) and you can see I've swatched that "mixed" colour to the right of the small swatches of each colour by itself. It's likely that my favorites in these little trios is the lightest colour and the darkest colour, actually. The lightest colour has the best glow (almost like a duochrome) and the darkest colours are the most densely pigmented. The middle colour (and the result of mixing the three) is still super pretty though!! I'm glad I snagged these!
As with each trip to Inglot, though, the downside is having to come home and rearrange my palettes!!! I *hate* taking them out of those magnetic palettes--I can never manage to not slip and gauge a few, which *always* makes me so sad!! The trick I've seen some people post about on the internet of using the magnets from the top of the palettes to grab at the corner of each pan doesn't work for me (I think they made the magnets that hold down the colours stronger or perhaps deeper) so I need to look for a stronger magnet to see if it works.
Regardless! Here is my full collection when I was attempting to put them into a new order. (I did move a couple around after this picture, but didn't take a final picture of each of my palettes.)
I have to say my newest obsession, and the colour that I have been getting more and more of when I stop by an Inglot counter, is taupe. There is just something so darn magical about taupes (they can be warm, they can be cool, they straddle different types of colours whether it's grey, brown, pink, purple, green...amazing!), wouldn't you agree??
Have you ever purchased from Inglot? What are your favorite colours?? :)
