Rainbow Eyes

So I know i'm not the first and i know i wont be the last but this is probably one of my favorite make up looks to do. It seemed only right that it should be the first look i post. I love to wear it out or to work just to see people's reactions. They either think i'm crazy or crazy cool and i can deal with being a little bit of both. Also it matches my earrings, silly i know but i like to take joy from the little things. Along with taking about a million pictures of this look i recorded a tutorial. No promises on when that will be up but i'll get it just as soon as i can edit it. Here's some of the pictures i took and i'll put a list of everything used at the end. Enjoy :)

Swatchapalooza: NYX Make Up Artist Kit

About time right? Just a little disclaimer, since my palette was slightly damaged during shipping i'm going to be using pictures of the palette from the website. All the swatch pictures are mine though. Enjoy :)

ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner in Copper

This is one of the products from my  haul that i wasnt to excited about. I had nothing against the product itself. I'm just not really all that big on cream or gel liners but being on sale i figured i would give it a shot. The name is dead on when it comes to the color. When i did the swatch my first thought was about pennies. The eyeliner comes with a short angle brush. The brush itself is surprisingly soft but it seems to be cheaply made so i'll probably just use my own brush. I never liked working with brushes/applicators that short anyway.

ELF Nail Polish Trios

French Manicure Pink ($3)
This set comes with clear, pink and white nail polish as well as stickers to use as a stencil for a french tip.

E.L.F. Cosmetics

So just a little post for today work and life has left me super sleep deprived. I realized yesterday that while i posted what i had purchased and the amazing deal i got i didnt really give any info on the brand for those of you who have never heard of it before.

Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics, or ELF for short is an amazing brand. Here, i'll let them do the talking for a moment.

E.L.F. Haul

Just got my order from Eyes Lips Face (ELF) Cosmetics. They were having a X Marks the Spot Sale with some pretty crazy deals. I may have gone a little over board but i only paid $22.70 for an order worth $46.25. And on top of that deal i also found a coupon code for free shipping.
Here's what i got: I'll include what the normal price is as for some odd reason i never got any emails about my order or an invoice with my package. I almost thought that i actually decided not to make the purchase. I would have had it not been for the charge on my account. Anyway, back to the make up.

Deal of the Day

Stila on Haute Look
Like i said before i'm quite addicted to this website. Honestly though who wouldn't be with deals like this?

When: 10/17/2011 to 10/19/2011 8 am
What: This time on Haute Look Stila is covering all the bases; eyes, lips and face. There is a ton of eye shadow pans on sale. If you plan on getting any of them i'd recommend you get one of the empty palettes unless you have other ways of storing the eye shadow. They also have a small selection of eye liners to pic from including a few of their smudge sticks. Its not part of the sale but just to give you an idea of how amazing the smudge sticks are, i swatched Stingray on the back of my hand and once it had set it was set. Took forever to get it off my hand. Unfortunately i cant say how well they actually hold up on the water line as i dont actually own any. The sale also features some of the very popular lip glazes and some mascaras. The real deal that caught my eye was the One-Step Make Up Foundation. It is on sale for $9. This stuff normally sells for $44 so that is one hell of a deal.

I'm going to get the foundation for sure. I'll probably snag a few of the eye shadows and liners as well.

Happy Shopping :)

Swatchapalooza: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils

 In each of these swatches i did one swipe of color then another. I blended the second swipe out using my finger.

Black Bean 601-Black

NYX Haul

Here is another one of my Haute Look purchases. Have i mentioned how addicted to this site i am? It is kinda bad but more often than not the deals on the make up are amazing. For someone trying to expand their collection without braking the bank it is nice to have around. They also do sales besides beauty products such as men's apparel, women's apparel, children's apparel, home decor, and they even have deals on vacations on their website. You should check it out, i'll even give you a link to make it easier. :)

Swatchapalooza: Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadows

Here are the swatches for the Urban Decay cream eye shadows. In each swatch i did a single swipe of color then another swipe which i blended out with my finger.  Enjoy :)

 Asphalt- Black with multi-colored glitter. I'm not a big fan as the color is rather patchy.

Urban Decay Haul

Awhile back Urban Decay went on sale on Haute Look it was mostly cream eye shadows but i managed to snag a few other items. In all i got 9 cream eye shadows for $3 each, liquid liner for $7, and a tinted moisturizer for $6. I made my purchase through Haute Look but the sale is still going on at Urban Decay's website.

Nails of the Day: Paint Splatter

Finally got to hang out with my friend Jackie and her manicure was way overdue. This paint splatter manicure was inspired by some duct tape she had found at the store. How cool is that? Is there any color or design you cant find in duct tape?

Deal of the Day

The Place:  Eyeko London
The Deal: Use the Code E17935 on purchases over $20 and you'll receive a free gift. This deal can not be combined with any other discounts or promotion codes.

It has actually been awhile since i checked out Eyeko's website and i was really sorry to see all of my favorites gone. Now they have a more professional look to the brand featuring what seems to be little more than mascara and eyeliner with more to come in the future. While i cant say i've tried the newer products personally i'm sure they are worth checking out as Eyeko has yet to disappoint. As for the older products while they can no longer be found on the site Eyeko has a Vintage Surprise Gift Set for $16. This set contains 3 vintage Eyeko items: a bottle of nail polish, a fat lip balm and one more surprise. For me that would be a must have for sure though i'd still like to check out the new stuff.

Have Fun Shopping :)

Coming Soon...

So my birthday was a lot of fun. If anyone asks i'm still 21. :) Unfortunately i haven't had a day off since then to get anything put together for my blog. That doesn't mean i haven't been brain storming though. In the works for you is the completion of my Walmart Mini Haul reviews, Urban Decay Cream Shadow Swatchapalooza and review, Arts & Crafts/Birthday Mini Haul reviews, and finally a review of the NYX Makeup Artist Kit.
