I heard about this brand through Glamourdolleyes. They did a collaboration with them on a collection. That collection is the Paper Runway. I got curious and wanted to try them out. so I ordered some samples from them. This is what I got.

If you’d like to order from them to you can find them here http://www.darlinggirlcosmetics.com/

the swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

I’m a horror movie junkie so when I saw a horror movie collection I had to look. They have a shadow based off of my favorite monster. Frankenstein and that’s exactly what this shadow is called. I love it. It’s a nice taupe with yellow and orange shimmer.

This is called The Count. From the Horror collection as well. This color is gorgeous! It’s a purplish blue with pink and blue sparkle. So pretty on the eyes.

dscn47156

This is Creature From The Black Lagoon. Beautiful teal with green and blue sparkle. So pretty. I am planing on getting the rest of the colors in this collection hehe.

dscn4744

This is London Calling not sure if this was part of a collection or not. But I liked the swatch so I grabbed it to try out. It’s a dark blueish purple with a red glitter. It’s really pretty.

This is a sample of a blush they have. I’m very fair and it’s hard to find a blush to contour with. When I saw they have one for us fair skinned girls I had to try it out. This is called Koalification. It’s a nice mauve gray. I know the swatch it hard to see. When I did the swatch it’s just looked like I darkened the shadows on my hand and looked more sunken in lol. It is a nice color to contour with.

Fotor07301850y5

This is a GWP(Gift With Purchase)Every time some orders something they send a complimentary limited edition shadow. This is called Sweet Cherie it’s a yellowish orange with pink sparkles. It makes me think of yellow cherries hehe.

dscn474436

They were also kind enough to send a sample baggie of a shadow called three witches. Very pretty reddish brown. Nice as a all over color on the lid. (^_^)

So that’s what I ordered from them. I’m really happy with what I got and I do plan on getting more from them (^_^)

August 2014 Starlooks

For those who don’t know Starlooks is a monthly subscription beauty box. It costs $15.00 plus shipping. Shipping price depends on where you live. For example my shipping is only $2.68 and I live in Washington. So I pay 17.68 per month per box. I enjoy getting this box, all the items are the brand Starlooks and they are a top quality makeup line. For the record all the stuff I have gotten sense January have been full size. Not those tiny sample items (^_^). I’ll put a link at the end to where you can sign up too (^_^)

Oh and the swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

Okay I have to say I really, really, really like this months box… So here’s what I got…

August 2014 Starlooks card

 

This is Starlooks liquid liner in Black. I use liquid liner all the time. Especially black, I wear a lot of dark looks for the most part so black liner is a must in my makeup bag. This was one quick swatch. I barely touched my hand and it went on very pigmented and dried fast. I can already tell I’m gonna really like this product. This costs $16 on the site.

 

Starlooks Liquid Liner

 

This is Starlooks Blush Compact it doesn’t have a name really only a number 3b2 on the back of it. So i’m guessing that’s the product number. These are full size. these are beautiful, I’ve been on a blush bronzer kick this year. So I was excited when I saw this. I actually couldn’t believe I got a product this nice. These do have a metallic sheen to them. Hard to tell in these pics. The two on the outer corners I’ll probably use the most. They’re colors I would normally go for. I think I’ll mostly use the middle one on my eyes as an eye shadow sense it’s a bit too orange for me. Either way I will use this. This costs $46 on the site.

Starlooks Blush Palette 3b2

 

Well, that’s what I got for this month’s Starlooks box. I can’t wait to see what we get next month. So excited!

August 2014 Ipsy…

0

For those who don’t know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription service for beauty products. It costs $10.00 a month. And you get 4 – 5 products. The products are decent size too. Not those samples that give you 1 use or if your lucky 2 or 3 lol. They always come in a little bag that’s themed for the month. I’ve been very happy with this subscription. See what I got for this month and decide if you want to sign up too… I’ll put the link at the end of the post. (^_^) Oh and another thing is when you do reviews for the products in your bag on the Ipsy site they’ll customize future bags to your liking. So if you review something and don’t like it, you will be less likely to get a product like that again. Sense doing those mini reviews, I’ve been happier with my bags (^_^). So here’s what I got got August…

August 2014 Ipsy

 I’m pretty sure they themed this for those going back to school…

August 2014 Ipsy Card

 Everything came in a plether white and orange polk-a-dot bag.

August 2014 Ipsy bag

 Curious to try this out. Though, I don’t use face primers for the most part. Most of them tend to make my face itch. But I’ll give this a go. Wont hurt to try it out. Most that’ll happen is I’ll have to wash my face really good.

Pores No More

 I like lip conditioners. I use them all the time. But this one I can’t stand the smell of it. I got nauseous right after one whiff. Closed it and put it back in the bag. This is going to a friend.

Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo

 I think this is the only product I’m not happy about getting. I don’t like dry shampoos. They tend to make my head itch really bad. So this too will be going to a friend.

Klorane

 I’ll admit I’m a little nervous to try this out. When I opened it they bristles just stayed flat till I push them up. It looks really goopy and I dunno. I guess I’ll just have to suck it up and try it. We’ll see……

UD Perversion Mascara

The swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

I was happiest about this product. I love eye shadows. It’s always nice to have a nice neutral color hanging out in your makeup bag or drawer.

J.Cat Half Naked

 So that’s what I got for the month. I’m not over excited about this bag but I’m not mad about it either. It’s an okay bag. We’ll see what they send out next month.

Here’s where you can sign up too: http://www.ipsy.com/r/19xe?sid=ipsypoints&cid=general

I’ve been hearing a lot about Beauty Bar Baby. So I decided to try them out. I grabbed a couple items to test out. This is what I got and I’m posting a look I did with these three items.

If you wish to try them out too you can find them here https://www.etsy.com/shop/BeautyBarBaby?ref=l2-shopheader-name

The swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

 

Beautybarbaby card

This is called Devils Breath it’s a nice red with gold shimmer through it. It is very pigmented and blended out smoothly. I really like this color.

Beautybarbaby Devels Breath

I wanted a color I could use in my crease or as a liner if I wanted. So I picked out a nice matte brown called Dark Chocolate. This seemed a little patchy at first but blended out nicely with a brush. It’s very pigmented and easy to work with. I know some dark mattes can be difficult to blend out.

Beautybarbaby Dark Chocolate

This is their waterproof gel liner in black. Okay the reason it took my so long to do this post is cause I’ve been trying to out and I wanted to see if I could get it to work on my waterline. I tried setting, putting a really small amount and setting it and my eyes just didn’t like it on the water line. It went everywhere in the corners of my eyes after an hour of wearing it. Maybe my eyes water just too much for this product. It’s nice and creamy, works great for winged liner. But as far as my waterline goes, it just didn’t work for me. I will continue to use it for winged liner or as a base for shadow.

Beautybarbaby black gel liner

This is a look I created with all the products. I took the pics right after I finished the look. It wasn’t till later that I wanted to say “for the Horde!” These are great colors for the horde sense they’re crest is more red, black, & brown and the Alliance is Gold, Silver, & Blue.

bbb

Oh, they also sent candy. They didn’t last long after I opened the package hehe.

August 2014 Glamourdolleyes OTM…

0

For those who don’t know OTM stands for Of The Month. It’s a subscription from http://www.glamourdolleyes.com/. You can sign up to get a limited edition shadow for that month. You can only sign up on the 8th of the month. It’s not a reacuring subscripstion. If you want to get it more than just one month you have to purchase a subscription for how many months you want. And if they’re available. There’s only a limited number of subscriptions so you kinda gotta stalk the site the day of to make sure you get one. They tend to sell out fast. This year they’re trying to make every month an extra month, but no promises. Which means you’ll get, not only the shadow but an axtra item wheather it be makeup based or fashion based. This month was an extra month (^_^). Oh and they include candy in all of them pretty much hehe.

So onto what I got for this month (^_^) oh and the swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

GDE OTM August 2014

Aug 2014 GDE OTM Card

Everything came in this grey see through mesh bag. For the record I reuse these to hold the samples I get in the orders from Glamourdolleyes.  They always send 2 samples of shadows (^_^).

GDE OTM Bag

This is the color of the month Cement Heart. I love grays! So I was very pleased to see it. This is a good transition color in my opinion but it can be good as an all over color as well.

GDE OTM Cement Heart

This month had a few extra’s. First was a sample of a blush from a new collection that was just released on the site called Deadly Hollywood. I can’t wait to buy it! Just gotta wait for some moneys hehe. This blush is called Hollywood Affair. This is a beautiful rose gold and very pigmented. A little goes a long way.

GDE Blush Hollywood Affair

This is a Hydraglaze that’s in the Deadly Hollywood collection as well. This is called Homicide. This is a nice gloss that’s not too sticky. I find it really moisturizing on my lips. The color is awesome too. (^_^)

GDE HydraGlaze Homicide

We also got an extra from another indie brand called Darling Girl Cosmetics. I have ordered from them and really like their products. I’m actually going to do a blog post on the products I did purchase through them. But it might not be up till later this week or next week. Here’s a link to the website so you can check them out too (^_^)  http://www.darlinggirlcosmetics.com/

The color they were kind enough to add into the bag is Teal Me Lies. It’s very pretty teal blue. This is very pretty color. It makes me this of mermaids. I love it!

DGC Teal Me Lies

The candy everyone got this month is Sour Punch. This has wheat in it so it’s going to my husband (^_^).

August 2014 Julep Box…

0

Got my August Julep box. For those who don’t know Julep is a beauty subscription box. They say the first box is free but ya just gotta pay for shipping which is only $3.00. So that’s not that bad. But if you continue to get the box, I spend $21.89 per box. Though, they have added the option to completely customize your box. It’s costs $24.99 and I don’t mind not being able to completely customize what I get in my box. I just choose which style of box I want. I usually get the Bombshell box, mostly cause that one almost always has the colors I like. You also have the option to add stuff to your box for a cheaper price then on their store. Including polishes for $4.99. I added things to my box this month and I have to say I’m annoyed. They didn’t send me what I chose. I didn’t get an email asking if they could swap something out or anything. I just got an email saying sorry for the delay in shipping. I emailed them and have yet to receive any word back. I’ll update this post when I hear from them. Sorry for the mini rant, I really do like this box I just get really annoyed when I order something and I don’t get it when I paid for it. It’s why I don’t purchase anything through the E.L.F. Website. Sense it always happens. Anyways, let my know what you think and I’ll put a link at the end of the post if you’d like to try it out too…

Wanted to update ya on this. Julep finally emailed me back yesterday. They’re refunding me my money for the products I did not receive and are giving me the Jules they promised. So everything was straitened out and resolved.

 

August 2014 Julep

So here’s what I got for August…

Julep Glass file (2)

This is Neha, it’s a pretty berry color.

Julep Neha

 

And with Neha I got the shade Tazeen. A nice chunky gold glitter.

Julep Tazeen

 

The Bombshell Box came with a Gel eye glider eye pencil. I chose the shade Rich Brown.

Julep Gel eye glider Rich Brown

So for the addons I added a mystery polish. Though, I got 2 extra polishes soooooo, I’m not sure which one’s the mystery polish and which one is the extra for adding three addons lol. So here’s both polishes…

This is Lilou, it’s a pretty yellow, Sorry for the black specs in the polish, I’m not sure why there was so much dust on these when I cleaned them before I swatched them.

Julep Lilou

 

Here’s the second polish, in the shade Kyla. This is a pretty sparkly orange. Would be nice to wear during Halloween(^_^).

 

 

Julep Kyla

 

Now I’m guessing the rest is the mystery grab bag I ordered…

This is Solace Oil-Free Sunscreen with SPF 30. I’ll admit that’s not high enough for me. I usually use SPF 50 or higher. But this’ll be nice to try…

Julep Sunscreen (1)

Then I got a Glycolic Hand Scrub with Natural Apricot Seeds… never used this but I’m intrigued to try it…

Julep Sunscreen (2)

This is a tiny phone screen cleaner. Which I’ll probably just end up using for my camera lens…

Julep phone Screen cleaner

Eye primer is always a good thing to have…

Julep eye primer

This is a glass nail file. Glass nail files are actually healthier for your nails. I’m not sure why it’s just what I’ve always heard… if you know why then please let me know(^_^).

Julep Glass file (1)

 

Now I would show you what else I ordered but I didn’t get my smoldering eyes kit. So yeah…..

For those who don’t know Starlooks is a monthly subscription beauty box. It costs $15.00 plus shipping. Shipping price depends on where you live. For example my shipping is only $2.68 and I live in Washington. So I pay 17.68 per month per box.

July 2014 Starlooks

 

This months box was  a limited edition box. That was designed around a female band called Pink Nylon. Each member of the group picked out a product for this month’s box. These are products that they would use.

First up we have Starlooks single eye shadow in the shade Traffic Yellow. This is actually a lot brighter in person. My camera doesn’t like picking up on yellows for some reason. This color is very pretty, I would wear this on it’s own or with a cat eye look. This can definitely brighten up your eyes.  Oh this costs $12.00 on the Starlooks website.

 

dscn474475463

Second up this is Starlooks Tendergloss in Pooh Bear. This is a pretty color though I’m not sure how often I’ll wear it sense it is an orange base lip color. I look better with lip colors that have a blue or cool undertone to them. This costs $13.00 on the Starlooks website.

dscn474464389

Third up is Starlooks Eye Pencil in Blue Chill. I love this one. Then again I love blue, so of course this is my fav of the bunch hehe. This can give a really nice pop of color to the eyes. This costs $12.00 on the Starlooks website.

dscn474465356

Last up is Starlooks Lip Pencil in the shade Tipsy This color is a little more bolder in person. It’s a nice bright pink. This is a good match with the tendergloss. Pretty color and this costs $12.00 on the Starlooks website.

dscn47446542

So that’s it for July’s Starlooks box. Sorry I didn’t post this sooner. As I said in my last post it’s been really hot in my house and I don’t want to turn on my comp during that kind of heat. It really heats up my room. Been so hot that I haven’t worn makeup once for almost 2 weeks now cause it’s just melting off not long after I put it on. So yeah, I’ll try to post more but it might not be till the weather cools a bit. I’ll try though.
