Fenty Galaxy Eyeshadow + Eyeliner

I love sparkly make-up so I could not resist getting Fenty’s Galaxy collection eyeshadows and a glittery black eyeliner.

Look how beautiful this unicorn-esque packaging is too!

Inside are various coloursย of eyeshadow that are super glittery. It’s hard to capture in photos, but a few of the colours looked like it sparkled in two tones.

The colours themselves were pigmented. These swatches were made from one simple swipe of my finger. When I used them, there was some glitter fall-out on my face, which was to be expected from the shine in these shadows. They are also pretty easy to build and blend with other sets.

I have hit and miss experiences with glitter eyeliner because the few I’ve tried have irritated my eyes. However, this one did not!

It goes on as a regular black eyeliner, but if you smudge it (while it’s still wet), that’s when the true shine shows. After it dries, it doesn’t smudge and lasts all day.

Both these new additions will be so perfect in adding a holiday sparkle.

SHANY Eyeshadow

One of my Black Friday finds was this SHANY Loose Powder Glitter Eyeshadow Kit.

It came in 40 bright colours with two complimentary brushes. SHANY is a company I discovered on Amazon that has affordable products that don’t test on animals.

Here is a sample swatch of green and orange. I didn’t use that much but it is already so bright and sparkly! The bonus of loose eyeshadows is that not only can I use them for eyes, but anywhere else that needs splash of colours. Mixing it with lip gloss or chap will give me fun shades of lip colours or add a little splash in nail polish or mascara.

Now I’m ready for sparkly Christmas parties.

A Look A Day Challenge- Look #2

Here is my second look of my March challenge.

30 Day Challenge: March Edition- A Look A Day

I conquered last month’s challenge of not having a drop of coffee. Today I completely forgot that I could finally have a cup. I don’t think I plan on jumping back into habit just yet. Perhaps my mind will change next week when I have work engagements which will need me up in the morning. But anyway, it’s a new month so time for another challenge.

This is only part of it

I think it’s time for something artistic. I realized while doing my video album reviews that it’s pretty fun to play with make up. I also realized, I have way too much makeup. When I was in university I was addicted to buying set after set of eye-shadow. Often they came with blushes, lip glosses and eye liners too. I have hundreds of colours at hand so this month I decided.. I will create a different look a day.
