Eye of the Night! (EOTN)

I don't think I could wear something like this out on your average sunny day (yet...) but I really like it as a night/going out look! Which, you know, is what I totally did last night. I didn't stay in my room and eat snacks all night or anything.

My inspiration was the Maybelline palette. I don't use it often because the colors are so vibrant, but I needed a bright green for this look and it certainly did the job! The whole colored brows thing is new, too. Maybe it is my subconscious telling me I should dye my hair red like i've always wanted! Who knows?

For this look I utilized the following products:

  • Urban Decay Eye Primer in Original
  • Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion in Forest Fury
  • Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Buttercupcake
  • Lancome Artliner in Noir
  • NYX Single Eyeshadow in Luxor and Burgundy Pearl 
  • NYX Retractable Eye Pencil in Peacock
  • Benefit BadGal Mascara in Plum
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Thanks for reading and have a great day! xx

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Reviews and Swatches

Left to right: Cupcake, Lollipop, Candy Apple, Raspberry Pie
After seeing so many promising reviews on these babies, I decided to give them a go myself! These of course are the new Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. Revlon's claims for this product are:
  • Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
  • Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
While I definitely agree that they glided on the lips, I can't say they added 156% more moisture. Don't get me wrong, my lips didn't feel dry for any time that I wore the product, but it didn't feel any different from when I wear my Carmex. They seemed to me a hybrid between lip gloss and lipstick which I really liked.

****QUICK WARNING****. The natural light swatches kinda sucked. For some reason, the flash swatches are more true to life (take my word for this). Please note this if you like a certain swatch more than another of the same shade.

Now on to the swatches, shall we?
