Anyone have their gel liners? I got them in 77 and 83 for the first time, any opinions on them? smiles.gif

Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year so far smiles.gif

th_hello2.gif glammy girl!  Your Gingerly/Melba combo sounds just lovely!  I haven't ventured into the Inglot gel liners...too busy buying nail polish like it's facing a ban and we'll never have access to it again.  Please don't ask me to explain this madness.

I didn't wear makeup again today, but not because I didn't want to. I was hit with the cleaning bug and spent the day cleaning. I was planning to put it on after I was done (or just stopped, rather), but it's late now. I was actually thinking about putting it on before I started cleaning. I'm glad I didn't. It's like a workout session when I get into my cleaning fits. The only thing is that I may have overworked myself too soon. Even if I did, I'm still doing a look tomorrow.

I hope you didn't ruin your gorgeous mani with this cleaning jag and/or cause a medical setback!  Careful now CC.  nonono.gif

You must be reading my mind. That's exactly the look I was going to try to do, Hot Chocolate with a sparkly purple eye. You must wear Lilibet's Jubilee ASAP and here's why! I posted more pics in the nail polish thread. I'm not sure if it's spamming to upload the same photos into different threads.

 

 

is that just one nail polish? your manicure is beautiful, and you have very nice nails/fingers...

i just received my 'makeup your mind' book yesterday from amazon! it's been on my wishlist for something like 3 years at least...anyway, it's so cool! i hadn't realized that it had acetate overlays...i'd like to try out one or two of the looks, but many of them are just way too avant-garde for me to attempt. but the book kept me busy reading for two hours last night, and i ended up being late waking up this morning. woops!

 

anyway, this morning i wore the high society trio on eyes -  lavender all over up to brow, green n outer corners and lower lashline, and purple in centre and lower lashline. and i wore launch away on cheeks, vendanges on lips. it was a pretty simple look, but that's probably a good thing since i was so late!

I also haven't been wearing makeup lately :(

 

Tomorrow, I have a look in mind though:

 

Taking the eyes easy...

Mac MES in Silver Birch on Lid

Nars Coconut Grove in crease (lightly, also as a transition color)

Sephora Prism eyeshadow in Pearl as highlight

 

Mac Brow Fluidline in DDB

Lancome Definicils mascara

 

Face

Mac Studio Fix Foundation mixed with Revlon Colorstay

Nars Stick Concealer in Armande

Mac MSFN to set (Dark)

Studio Rose (highlight and blush)

Contour with Sleek Contour Kit

Set with UD All Nighter

 

Lips

I want to wear Hot Chocolate, but that lipstick needs a break. I keep wanting to wear it! So I think I"m going to do:

Tarte Matte Lipsurgence in Envy (one of my favorite shades in the whole world)

 

What do you think? The eyes may change, but I'll play around with it some more.

 

Oh yeah, nail polish!

 

OPI Live and Let Die

 

I follow the NP thread, and you guys are the biggest enablers. I just ordered from Zoya and A England because of you!

I was being as careful as I possibly could with my nails. I'm happy to say there's no damage. Aside from tcatching a cold, I have no idea what I did with my back. I went to sleep fine and woke up with it in pain. Maybe I was dreaming too hard about buying nail polish.

Thank you! It's two polishes. I applied two coats of Butter London Lillibet's Jubilee on every nail. Then I layered two coats of Deborah Lippmann Today Was A Fairytale on my pinky and index fingers to accent.

Your intended look sounds lovely!  I didn't get Silver Birch...it seems to be pretty popular.  You're struggling to keep from wearing Hot Chocolate the way I'm trying hard not to wear the All Woman eyeshadow quad.  I'm trying to extract my inner vamp by wearing dark lipstick.  Today I wore MAC's Chestnut lipstick, lip glass & nail polish.  I played the eyes somewhat safe with a neutral look using Chanel's Raffinement eyeshadow quad.  If I can pull off a dark smokey eye and vampy burgundy lip I will have beaten my inner vamp who wants me to play it safe & soft.

Lol you definitely have an inner vamp! :)

 

So I did all of the above, but added a few things: I lined my eyes with UD Perversion, which really brought the eye look together.

I also caved and wore HC!! (I can't get enough of it!!) heart.gif and lined my lips with Mac Cork, but only a little, because I really wanted HC to stand out. I also added a little bit of Stratus blush from HC collection with Stereo Rose, because I wanted something deeper. I still need to get BL Toff so I can match it with my lips. Side note: I LOVE that trend. Matching lips and nails are amazing.

 

Your look is absolutely beautiful! Sounds like a pretty, nude makeup look. The Raffinement quad is getting a lot of attention for having gorgeous neutrals.

Lol I've noticed this thread has a lot of nail polish discussion lately smiles.gif I'm not really a nail polish person because I've had a disgusting habit of biting my nails which has only just recently stopped icon_eek.gif Enjoy all your goodies though, I've been obsessing over Inglot recently, it's so hard to walk in there and not buy the whole store smiles.gif

Would love to see more nail polish picture posts Medgal smiles.gif

A few ladies in the nail polish thread mentioned that wearing polish actually helped them to stop biting their nails. They didn't want to ruin their pretty manicures or didn't like the thought of putting polished nails into their mouths.

You may want to get Lillibet sooner rather than later. It's a LE color and has already disappeared from Butter London's website, Ulta and Nordstrom. Beauty.com has it, but I don't know if they ship to Canada.

Thanks for the tip. It appears to be on the canadian site when I just checked. Can anyone recommend other colours I should get while I'm ordering? I have a few from the alexander mcqueen collection, and I really enjoyed the formula.

aradhana, I've been enjoying Butter London's Toff.  I'm obsessed with it lately. I goes really well with MAC's Hot Chocolate lipstick.  LOVE IT!

Note: I just stopped there. I really can keep going. I could make better suggestions if I knew your color preferences. I've also only suggested colors that I've actually purchased. There are other colors that I like and think will be great choices, but I haven't bought them yet.

Listen to MACHostage. Stay away from the nail polish thread if you don't want to become addicted. We're all lost causes over there, but we love it.

post #259 of 5342

I'm very happy to report that I did a look yesterday. I'm not a liar, LOL! It was inspired by my nails, so I was aiming for a sparkly purple look. I need to type it all out.

Awwww.  I'm sure it was lovely CC.  Once you share it here I may have to try it out because I've been eager to wear my Lillibet's Jubilee too.

post #265 of 5342

I am curious. 

post #266 of 5342

I tried Toff tonite at NOrdies.. It's pretty.  Good for me they didn't have it in stock.  It reminds me of the old school rosey nudes that ppl would wear.

I just love it.  It's my new neutral. You can find it online...www.butterlondon.com   th_happy1.gif

It looks nice w/ Hot Chocolate l/s & eye looks using the All Woman quad!! 

post #268 of 5342

One of my fave looks from last week, based around a pink from the cold theme. I can't do cool pinks anywhere but on my cheeks where for some reason it looks natural, so this is as pink as I get.

 

I tried to use colours that I hadn't reached for in awhile.

 

Face:

BB Cream

Mineralize Concealer

Blot Powder to set

 

Blush:

Launch Away (goes pink on me)

NARS Albatross highlighter

 

Lips:

Brave l/s

Absolutely It l/l

 

Eyes:

Expensive Pink on lid

Fig 1 on outer portion of lid

Indian Ink in corner/crease

Microviolet f/l

 

I managed to do six different looks this week, but I loved this one so much I'm guilty of repeating it twice. So far this month, I've managed to wear 16 different lippies (have changed some in the evening) and I'm almost halfway through my blush/highlight collection. I'm on track!
