REVIEW: Makeup Geek Eyeshadows

So I finally decided to get my own makeup geek shadows and here they are!

This is a soft, matte, warm sandy color.
A perfect transition shade for blending out your shadow/diffuse harsh lines.

Chickadee is a warm yellow/orange shade that has a matte finish.
I love using a soft fluffy brush like the MAC #224 for a sheer effect.

Burlesque is a metallic burgundy shade with a brownish under tone.
I used it to define my outer crease and blended it out with chickadee.

I also appreciate that each back is labeled for shade reference.
The eyeshadows are very powdery but very easy to blend.

I enjoyed using these in my recent makeup tutorial.

Can't wait to get more!

September 2015 Favorites!

September was the month for liquid lipsticks and NYX!
Color:  Striking
It's no secret that I love a good liquid lipstick at an affordable price.
This matte lip cream is a beautiful plum/berry shade perfect for Fall/Winter.
It doesn't dry out my lips and you can't beat the price!

Color:  Sandstorm
Another affordable and popular liquid lipstick is by NYX.
If you're looking for that trendy 'greige' lip, then this is your color.
Flatters all skin tones and has a creamy texture.
Color:  Trap
If you're looking for a super matte lip, try this 'greige' shade from ColourPop.
It's very long lasting and doesn't smudge for hours.
Color:  Brown
Nyx lip pencils are so creamy, pigmented, and super affordable.
This brown lip pencil will work perfectly under any lipstick shade.
I can use it for a nude lip, dark lip, or for a mauve lip.
I love this coffee brown shade that is so pretty on it's own.
Color:  Yellow
For a brightening effect under my eyes, I use this yellow color from NYX.
It's lightweight, opaque, and easily blend able with my beauty blender.
Once I set it with powder, it doesn't fade throughout the day.  

Color:  Black

I raved about this brow pencil in a recent blog post for a reason.
It's AMAZING!
I've used the Anastasia brow wiz and this is the exact dupe for it.
My eyebrow routine is super quick now and my brows look perfect.
You need this product in your life.

What are your favorite products?

ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Lip


Color shown here:  Trap-a dusty grey (greige) shade

ColourPop cosmetics came out with their ultra matte lip colors this summer
The product goes on as a lipstick but dries to a matte formula

I chose Trap and it is the prettiest greige color that is so on trend right now

Your lips are going to be drenched with super opaque color that flatters all skin tones

I've been wearing Trap for a few hours and my lips never felt dry..amazing
As with every matte lip, exfoliate and apply lip balm prior to application

The best part about these ultra matte lips are that they won't break the bank
These liquid lipsticks are only $6!
I ordered Trap on a Friday and got it in the mail Tuesday morning
You also get a personal thank you note with your order from ColourPop

Try these amazing colors and you won't be disappointed!

Sharlene.
