Thank you very much :) I have to admit, I only did it as the sweet sage splurged on a little thick...it was a repair job! ;)

 

I did a similar look today using black and hot pink - didn't get a pic though so I'll have to do it again soon.

Woah, I missed so much!

Tanks ElvenEyes for the trivia about the lipsticks, the next time I'll watch a movie I'll make sure to watch out for it. And I love the nude look you did, I wish they would look this good on me.

I really love all the looks you did.
Lou, I need to copy more of your looks, they are using colour combinations I would never use.

Jen, I will steal the Odalisque/dark blue combo, love blue smokey eyes.

Vixstar, love the one with the blue on the lid and the gold in the crease. Very colourful w/o being too much obvious. Love combos like this.
The double line is my vacation look, all I bring are a bunch of mini 24/7 liners, concealer and mascara and I am good to go on vacation pompom.gif

Aha! My little grey cells remembered something, clearly. It's a beautiful necklace.

 

The double line is good in the summer - especially with fluidline and liquidlast, it stays on all day, no matter how hot you get or how much you swim (well, just about!). Easy peasy. I'm sure there'll be more on here soon - hurrah for sun! :)

Hmmm, some old faves have been popping up but I am still making sure to use my neglected bits and bobs along with them!

Today I went door knocking to find my cat Ted, who had been missing since the end of March - and found him enjoying the old lady next door's company!

Glad you found your cat, and good luck keeping him inside (without you going mad!)

 

I love the gold on you, it's a really lovely look :)

Yes, that's it exactly. Every time you blink you flash colour greengrin.gif

Littlepickle, great looks, I need to get out my Style Snob again. You look really great being pregnant. And good to hear that you found your cute little cat, he sounds like a gourmet winks.gif



Today I wore:

Painterly Paint Pot, Mylar to highlight, inner corner Solar White, on the lid Shimmermoss and Scene in outer corner and crease. Mont Black to deepen the outer corner.
Tarnish to line. I swear Tarnish is the smoothest liner except Feline I ever had love.gif

Btw, do your paint pots also smell like pudding? Or is it just mine?
post #132 of 324

No pics because I am just hanging at home today since it is pouring out and I am super tired.  So, skipped eyes (typical off day for me!) and used:

 

Tinted Moisturizer by Clinique

Bronzer by Bobbi Brown

Highlight with Miss Behave

Clinique Chubby Stick in Mega Melon

Dior Addict l/s #680

today i got back to this challenge and used a pigment!  i used fresh greem mix mes on my lids and then deep purple piggie in the crease! then ud sin shadow to highlight, mac maytery liner and myth as a lippie. which annoyingly is drying my lips out right now!!

post #134 of 324

I've had a lazy couple of days and just wore a nude eyeshadow and a bit of mascara (lazy, lazy!)

 

Today, I made the effort and have done a similar look to the Blue-pigment one above but instead have:

 

Violet pigment on the lid

Boots 17 'Spirit' in the crease (shimmery smoky grey) with

Blacktrack eyeliner

 

...and my black glasses on - my OH calls me 'supernanny' with these on. graucho.gif

 

Pics if I remember when I get in...but there's an after-work pub plan so it seems unlikely ;)

 

It's a bit quiet round these parts - how are your faces?

 

 

post #135 of 324

Hiya ladies! There were some beautiful things happening while I was gone! :)

 

Just got back, and I'll be back to the challenge tomorrow morning! I was only able to bring a small travel case with me, so I only had the essentials and cheated by re-using my favourites :P I'm excited to get back to this! Every look I see inspires me to do something else! (I think that double-liner idea might be the thing I try tomorrow morning! :P)

 

TTFN! :)

post #136 of 324

Oh wow! I only just found this thread, but I've already been trying to go through my stash of lipsticks. It's insane, because there are some in there that still haven't seen the light of day, despite the fact that I love them. So in recent days I've been pulling out all those lipsticks that time had forgotten. Now that I see what everyone else is doing, I want to set a challenge for myself. So here's one look with a colour I hadn't tried in a while. 

 

IMG_1902.JPGIMG_1905.JPG

 

eyes: inglot #352 e/s, mauvement pigment, chanel fauve e/s, bloodline pigment, on the hunt l/l, smolder e/l, ysl faux cils mascara

cheeks : amazon princess blush

lips: blood red l/s

 

i almost didn't go for this colour, because it looked so little like the name implied, but it's such a lovely rose-pink shade.

 

So, now that I have you ladies to keep me honest, I can officially start my l/s challenge!

 

Love seeing everyone's looks!!!

Kate you look so pretty! blood red lippie looks amazing on you! :)

 

today i failed again. i used the naked palette! but in my defence i was super tired when doing my make up today! :p lol!

post #138 of 324

This is my face today.

 

Picture 013.jpg

 

Same make up as yesterday, because I got home drunk last night and forgot to change over my make up bag.

 

Probably do some closeups another time, we were taking Serious Work Pictures, as you can tell.

^hee hee! your serious work pictures are like the serious pictures i take at work! lol!

post #140 of 324

Yay, Katred! That lippie is gorgeous, but definitely not blood red! lol

And Vixstar.... I have no words. That face is priceless! lol And you gotta love second day smoky eyes!

Lou, we'll forgive you :) Some days there is no time and you have no energy!

 

Here's what I wore today - no pics because I had to rush out the door!

 

EYES: Naked pigment, Jigs & Jives Pigment (mini vials from the Tartan Tale Holiday Smokey Eyes Kit)

 

CHEEKS: BOAA Blush (soooooo much love! :))

 

LIPS: Dior Addict Ultra Reflect Gloss in Stretchy Brown (537) - my 2nd fave gloss of all time, the first being the same one in Jersey Pink! Such gorgeous colours, and not sticky! This colour looks amazing with a slight tan or while wearing bronzer in the summer (although I'm always quite pale - I don't do tanning! :P)

 

And, P.S..... OFFICIALLY DONE MY MASTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I've been meaning to ask you - how/when/where did you get your naked palette? I would literally would have given anything to get one - but I never saw them in HofF or Debenhams... tell me your secret, pleeeease?

post #143 of 324

Congratulations Jenn!!!!! Go out and party and get yourself a present!!

 

I'm trying to continue with the lipstick challenge. I wore Inglot 151 because I wanted to try to see if I could get a look that resembled some of the products from Quite Cute by using what I already have. 

 

I also did a quick look with some new Inglot shadows and Chanel's Antigone Rouge Coco Shine, mostly because I wanted to review the RCS for my blog and I didn't have good pictures of me wearing it. 

 

So far, so good. I'm going to keep listing things in here because I want to be able to keep track of them all. Trying to keep a list. Right now I have a split lip, so I might be switching to glosses for a few days. Or at least very moisturising lipsticks.

i bought it from debenhams a few days before the release date because the girl is quite nice to me! i have never seen it in stock since either which is crazy! and whenever it comes online it seems to sell out again! i actually love it so much that i will buy another one because it is the perfect palette for me to take when i go on managers conferances and i have to look all professional!

 

today i sucked again - but i promise i shall use pigments tomorrow!
 

 

post #145 of 324
Congrats on your master, Jenn. Feels great, doesn't it smiles.gif

I tried a look with pigments yesterday and I had to take it all off. Pigment all over my face, in my hair, virtually everywhere. No idea why, did nothing differently compared to the last time th_dunno.gif
So I went with my Inglot shadows love.gif, Blanc Type to highlight, Mehr on the lips and Brit Wit on the cheeks with Perfect Topping over it.
post #146 of 324

I decided to use eyeshadows I never use (I don't like to go to the pink side) but I did last night because I wanted to try Playtime l/s.

 

FACE:

MAC Prep & Prime, MAC MSF Foundation NC20, MAC Studiofinish concealer NW20, MAC MSF Natural in Light Medium, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess bronzer, MAC Giggly blush

EYES:

MAC Bare Study paintpot, MAC Swish, MAC Sketch, MAC Humid (as lower lid liner), MAC Blacktrack, L'oreal Voluminous

LIPS:

MAC Playtime

 

Sorry for the messy hair!

After the photos I added MAC #3 Lashes and I had my hair done!

Romina, those colours look gorgeous on you! You make me want to pull out all of those colours (but to be fair, I should wait a while before wearing Play Time again...)

 

Today's lipstick is Cockney with Redd lip liner. I love that combo, because Cockney is just such an in-your-face red and that pencil makes it all the more audacious. It's an absolutely miserable day here- cloudy and hailing if you can believe. So at least my lips are bright and cheery...

What a lovely bright look - definitely chasing away the clouds :)

 

Jenn - congratulations! Now you get your life back :):):) How are you going to celebrate?

 

I've stayed indoors and painted my nails three times deciding which colour I like this week....the face is naaaaaked and covered in moisturiser. It's classy look...I might share my 'monster' face with you girls one day...if you're lucky!

 

I hope you all have a lovely week planned?

Have you seen this review of Milani's 'Blue My Mind' at Temptalia? That looks like a pretty close dupe - might see if I can get my paws on one and I'll do a comparison....
