FOTD: Navy & Neutrals

Another day, another FOTD. Here’s a largely neutral look that took way too much effort, probably, to achieve. I saw this look and wanted to recreate it, but I guess I needed to commit more, and also a super sparkly pale blue liner instead of all the neutral/rosy/dark ones I’ve got. My eyebrows are really uneven, huh? For my eyeshadow, I just used the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Just a Sip, which is my obsession as of late, then I lined my upper lid with 3CE Creamy Waterproof Eye Liner in #5 Moulin Rouge, which is a gorgeous sparkly navy. For my lower lash line, I just went with the Innisfree Gel Liner in 3 (I think). Other product info after the photo. Products Used: — Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation (Just Sheer) — ColourPop Super Shock Shadow (Just a Sip) — 3CE Creamy Waterproof Eye Liner (#5 Moulin Rouge) — Innisfree Gel Liner (3) — K-Palette 24H Real Lasting 2Way Eyebrow Pencil (103)* — Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder (Medium) — ColourPop Blush (Aphrodisiac) — …

3CE Lip Lacquer in Desert Flower

And another belated review for one of my fave lip products from my Korea trip… last year. I told you I’m running on an immense backlog, you guys. Anyway, here be the 3CE Lip Lacquer in Desert Flower. It’s essentially a liquid lipstick that semi-sets to a somewhat velvety texture. It packs a lot of punch! I’ve tried another color prior to Desert Flower, a loud neon pink called Pink Boom.*

FOTD: SUQQU Sumiredama & MAKE Jakarta

This was supposed to be a New Old Face post, but I realized that most of these products, I’ve used quite a bit already anyway, there was no “new” factor to it. Anyway, I wore this on our Taiwan trip. I didn’t remember to take many FOTDs, so here’s one I did remember taking, heh. After years of overpacking makeup when I travel, I finally realized that going with a neutral eye is the best way to go. You can pair it with so many things like a bold lip or pops of color, and so on. I didn’t have to powder my face, either. I quite like this base combo! Products Used: — Kosé Suncut Water in UV Protect Essence SPF 50+ PA+++ — Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Medium — Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Corrector in Medium — K-Palette 24H Real Lasting 2Way Eyebrow in G101* — NARS Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eye Base — SUQQU Eye Quad in Sumiredama — K-Palette 1Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner in R01* — 3CE Under Eye …

More 3CE: Line Your Eyes

This post is quite overdue, given that I bought these pencils way back in November. Since I don’t do colored liner very often—which kind of makes this purchase questionable—it took me a while to gather my thoughts on these products. Long story short: I really like them! 🙂 I’ve been pretty much liking my 3CE purchases anyway, so this comes as no surprise. Featured in this post are two kinds of liners by 3CE: the Creamy Water Proof Eyeliner (that reminds me of NARS’ Larger Than Life pencils) and the “Under Eye Flash,” which I imagine helps achieve the sparkly waterline/lower lash line look that Koreans seem to really like. I’ve already tried a shade in the latter formula, which I like, but makes me look a little stoned as it’s quite coppery and brings out the red on my waterline. Swatched, L-R are the 3CE Creamy Water Proof Eye Liner in Mojito, Wow Pink, and Moulin Rouge, and the Under Eye Flash in Pitter Patter. The first two shades are completely matte, which adds …

FOTD: ColourPop Not a Box of Chocolates

I wanted to post a look using ColourPop’s Not a Box of Chocolates, which was a holiday release (sorry). I mainly wanted to show how they look and talk about how they apply. 🙂 So this is going to be a sort of short review, too. I used a matte shade, Doe-a-Deer, which they ended up making permanent and the other colors I used aren’t that hard to dupe anyway. Here’s the look: ColourPop’s Halo, Partridge, and Doe-a-Deer are the only eyeshadows I used for this look. I used the NARS Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eye Base under everything, and a primer/base really helps the colors to pop more. ColourPop actually suggests you apply these shadows with your finger, to really pack on the pigment. I find that this absolutely makes a difference in how the colors apply. Basically, I patted on Halo on the inner 2/3 of the lid. It’s a pale, non-metallic gold with a little bit of sparkle. It’s a “Satin Luxe” finish, which means that it has a bit of shine, but it’s …

Eye Love 3CE!

I thought I’d go crazy over the eyeshadows at Stylenanda’s 3CE, but I ended up just getting two matte eyeshadows and one cream eyeshadow. I was looking at a shu uemura-style horizontal palette, but resisted the very, very strong urge to pick up yet another neutral palette. The two matte eyeshadow shades I picked up were Salmon Pink, a matte… salmon pink, and Tom Boy, a very dirty olive. Both are so gorgeous, despite looking quite boring. I think they would be perfect for understated editorial looks–much like the campaign materials of 3CE feat. Park Sora. I resisted the cream shadow selection, too, and only got a warm medium bronzey brown called Glamorous. It reminds me a lot of my favorite eyeshadow, shu uemura’s ME medium brown 885, only it’s a lot less red.

FOTD: Everyday Mauve

At times, I feel like I’ve been “uninspired” when it comes to makeup because I rarely ever do any fun looks anymore, with the exception of certain lip colors… but I realized that it doesn’t really matter because I will use my makeup the way I want to use it. If that means yielding boring FOTDs, then so be it! For the record, I really like this FOTD, so there’s that.
