FOTD w/ Glamour Doll Eyes' 80s Child

I mostly did this look because I wanted to use some of the colors from the 80s Child collection from Glamour Doll Eyes :)
If you haven't seen them yet, I have swatches of four of the ten colors here.

Since today is December 1st, which means it's World AIDS Day, I decided to do a giveaway for a MAC Viva Glam I lipstick!

For some weird reason I don't seem to have a swatch picture of the lipstick, but you can see what it looks like in the video below! :)

All the 6 permanent Viva Glam shades.
The one I'll give away is Viva Glam I which is on the far right in this picture. 


If you haven't heard about the Viva Glam lipsticks before, it's a line of lipsticks where all the money you pay for them goes directly to the MAC AIDS Fund, which you can read more about here.



Rules

I'll be giving away 1 MAC Viva Glam I lipstick!
Everyone needs a red lipstick and this is definitely one of my favorites! :)

Look & Tutorial inspired by Make Up Store magazine!

I had so much fun doing this look!
Like I say in the video, the look was inspired by a look from an old Make Up Store magazine, which you can find on page 106 here.
I've looked at that picture so many times without ever trying to recreate it but I'm so glad I finally did! :)

Do you ever try to recreate looks you've seen other people do?
I rarely recreate other people's looks but I get inspired by them very often :)

Guess what I found on my camera... A FOTD!

I was uploading pictures from my camera (because I'm editing a tutorial! Wow ;) ) and came across these pictures!
They're of a quick look I did with some of the A Tartan Tale products when we had a workshop at work.

Ban This!

I did this look for work a couple of weeks ago, but I quite liked it, and had the time to take pictures for once ;)

These pictures are of a look I wore to work a few weeks back but I just never got around to pow

80s Child from Glamour Doll Eyes!

If you think eyeshadows inspired by Ninja Turtles, Barbie dolls and Care Bears sound like a good idea, you need to take a look at Glamour Doll Eyes' latest collection 80s Child!

Keep reading to see swatches and mini-review of four of the new colors!

Green brows?!

Wow, I've missed blogging! Basically, I've been busy with school and getting to know a ton of new people there, so blogging hasn't really been a top priority, unfortunately :/
I really, really hope to get back into blogging regularly, but I don't know when that'll happen. After all, it's "just" a hobby for me.

Thanks for sticking with me, I really appreciate all you guys!! :)

I have a post coming up with some of the new 80's Child collection colors from Glamour Doll Eyes  later today but I have this look to share first! :D

Yeah, I bleached my brows to be able to do fun colors on them more easily, haha! :)

Keep reading if you want to see more pictures and list of products used :)

A neon tutorial! :)


First of all: thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for sticking around even though I've been disappearing and returning quite a few times lately!

Second: I'm back with another tutorial :D

UV makeup: Kryolan vs. Wolfe

UV makeup sounds fun, doesn't it?!
But if you've ever used it, you probably know that it can be a bit of a pain to work with!

Are all neon colors hard to work with?
Or are some better than others?

I got a hold of two different types of UV neon makeup, so let me start by showing you what they look like!

MAC Viva Glam for Fall 2010 swatches and thoughts


This fall, MAC are coming out with two new additions to the Viva Glam family; Gaga lipglass and Cyndi lipglass!

Wham up the GLAM in VIVA GLAM! Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the sensational Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga! The uninhibited new voices behind MAC's new "From Our Lips" campaign, designed to speak to the challenges women face as the fastest new group affected by HIV/AIDS around the world.
The MAC AIDS Fund and the VIVA GLAM program are the heart and soul of MAC Cosmetics. Established in 1994 to support men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS globally, VIVA GLAM I, II, III, IV, V, and VI were launched as continous shades and have achieved tremendous success over the years. Fall 2010 sees two new Lipglass shades, introduced by our audacious superstars for a limited six months on counter.


Working at MAC isn't always so glamorous...


Yeah, I don't know what happened either! I'm just clumsy, I guess, haha :)

Good thing I have Marie-Louise there to take pictures when things like these happen! :D

Dare to Wear swatches and thoughts

Back in 2007 MAC released a collection called C Shock. This was the first MAC collection I remember buying something from, and I remember being super excited about all the bright eyeshadows in the collection.
Dare To Wear brings back one of those C Shock eyeshadows (Going Bananas), and it brings back a lot of memories for me! :)


Our own Lady Gaga mobilized legions of you to DARE TO WEAR... and it's created a wave of energy, excitement and outrageousness all around the world! Join the brigade of loud-and-proud who daily dare to declare their own individuality.
High-powered pigment and holographic pearl create a crazy-intense shine-saturated gloss, combined with Pop Eye Shadow shadws, as over-the-top as Lady G Live!
Inter-dimensional one-coat colour on the first stroke means there's always an encore! Creamy soft application grabs and sculpts, gel structure molds and has a bouncy feel - pure exhilaration, it's a personal high! More and more of you, every minute, every hour, every day, not afraid to DARE TO WEAR.
Bravo!

MAC Update sneak peak ;)


I'm so glad I brought my camera with me to update! :)
I had the chance to swatch so many of the new products, and I'm really looking forward to sharing all the pictures with you!

I'll have posts up with all the swatches ASAP!

Lemming: Princess!

Oh, how I wish I had just bought this little gem when I saw it at the airport flying home from London!



I smelled it, and even though I liked it I didn't get it because I hate rushing when it comes to buying perfumes.

All the way home on the plane I regretted that I didn't get it and I'm regretting it even more now that I can't seem to find the perfume here! Ugh! -.-


So...
What are your favorite perfumes?
Favorites for summer? :)

(Huge) Lodon haul! :D


First of all, I just want to say that I'm not posting this to brag or anything like that and I really don't hope it seems like it :/ I'm just a crazy makeup junkie who saved up for a shopping spree and wants to share her purchases with all her lovely followers!! :)

I wasn't sure if I should post everything in one big post or keep the things from each brand in separate posts, but I decided to just post the haul pictures of everything in this post, and if you're interested in seeing reviews on any of the products, let me know and I'll do separate posts with that :)

More polish!

I know, I know! More nail polish ;)
But since I keep buying them, I might as well share them with you, right? :)
(also because I suck and haven't had time to do any "real" posts, haha!)







I bought all of these before going to London, but haven't had the time to post about them yet. I hope to post haul pictures from London really soon! I got some great things :)
I also really hope to have time for some FOTDs and tutorials soon, but we'll see :)

Superglass!

Oh. My. God.!
I'm a sucker for anything sparkely and glittery so these are right up my alley!


I know, I know... Most of you have probably seen these already since they've been out for quite a while, but they're not been released here yet, and I love them so much that I really wanted to share swatches! :)

MAC In The Groove look + tutorial

Here comes the first look I did with products from the In The Groove collection from MAC! :)


If you missed the post I did with swatches of the In The Groove products, you can find it here :)

In the Groove goodies!

Anyone else excited for In The Groove?! :)

Unfortunately, all the products above aren't mine, but I had the chance to borrow them and swatch them all for you! :)

I also filmed a tutorial with some of the products but I'm not sure if I'll be able to have it up before I leave for London tomorrow morning. I'm working on it! :)

Inglot tutorial!

I've missed making videos so it's great to finally have another one up :)



Inglot swatches!


I mentioned these shadows when I got them a few weeks ago and finally had time to put up the swatches now! :)


Inglot is a Polish brand, and it's not really that easy to find information about it online. They don't seem to have an online store or anything like that.
As far as I know, there's only one Inglot store in the US (in New York) and I've heard that there's one in London as well, so I plan on checking that out when I go next week! That's right! I'm going to London :D

Top 10 polishes for summer!

I was watching JulieG713's video about her favorite summer polishes earlier today and thought it sounded like a fun video to do :)


So here it is - video and polish pictures!

Where have I been?! :O

I know I've been MIA and I'm sorry!!

So... What's my excuse? ;)
  • My work schedule has changed (more hours = more money but also less time to blog and do other fun stuff), but I'm getting used to it, so if I just start being more productive when I'm not at work, it should be easy to keep the blog going! ;)
  • Product specialist. If you haven't worked for MAC, you probably don't know what that means, so I'll just full you in real quick :P
    The Product Specialist basically has to inspire the other artists to sell more limited edition products.
    She/He has to arrange meetings every time a new collection is released.
    She/He also has to do a lot of facecharts for the new collections and come up with ideas for theme days or make sure that someone else is arranging a theme day.
    I've been product specialist for the past month (or maybe a little more) and am going to be for the next two months as well.
  • It was my birthdayyyy! Nah, that's not really an excuse, is it? :P
    I did spend a couple of nights doing fun family and friends stuff instead of sitting in front of my computer though, so I guess the birthday is to blame for a couple of missing posts ;)

I have some MAC pictures and some sushi pictures to share under the cut! :D


Haul: ORLY, Color Club and China Glaze!

Birthday FOTD! :D + Inglot!!

I'm no longer a teenager!


My birthday is almost over, but I really wanted to share my FOTD before going to bed :)

It's just a really quick FOTD, but I used some super pretty Inglot colors that I just got!
I'll share a picture of those things as well ;)

Weekly Polish Post vol. 3

I might have to rename these posts... They haven't really been weekly ;)
But I do have a few NOTDs to show you! :)

ORLY Mint Mojito and China Glaze Four Leaf Clover on the ring finger

FOTD: Orange lips are awesome! :)

The weather here was super nice today, so I decided to put my favorite plastic flowers in my hair and use some orange lipstick! ;)


For whatever reason, I find Morange lipstick quite hard to capture in pictures.
It always looks more red in pictures than it does in real life.

Organizing 3 drawers of MAC!

I guess this isn't your standard organizing post ;)

It's a post filled with MAC To The Beach porn!

MAC To The Beach blushes, bronzers and creme bronzers
 
I just organized 3 drawers full of To The Beach stuff at the counter today!
We're still missing the body oil and Thrills lipstick so I hope we get it before the collection releases here on the 15th.
Yeah, I know... We're super late here! As always.

Great things come wrapped in panda paper!

Are you tired of seeing Fyrinnae hauls yet? ;)


Few things excite me more than getting new makeup ;)

I ordered all of this on May 16th(a Sunday), and it shipped on May 24th(a monday). It said on the website to expect 12-18 business days for the order to process, so Fyrinnae worked faster than I expected once again :)

For this order, I decided that I needed all of Fyrinnae's "brightest" colors!
...And a couple of other ones as well.

Polish!


I'm a little sad, that I couldn't get any OPI polishes with my order.
Why? Because the online retailers can't sell OPI anymore!
Guess I won't be getting more OPI polishes ;)

I ordered all of these from 8ty8 on May 27th and they arrived today! May 31st :)

Friday, May 28, 2010

More NEON! :D

It seems like this is my first post in... Forever?
And it probably is.
I need to get back into blogging daily! :)

I'm not going to be home all weekend though, so it's not looking too good, haha! ;)

Basic Makeup: Finding the right foundation

I've gotten a lot of requests to do makeup tutorials on all the "basics" like foundation, liquid liner and things like that, and today I finally started! ;)




I can't decide if I should do a blog post about this too?
Blog posts can be longer and so I can explain everything better.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll put all the answers in a separate blog post :)

Collective Haul: MAC, OPI, GOSH

My super sweet colleague Marie Louise went to Hamburg this past weekend and she was sweet enough to bring me a couple of things form the To The Beach collection (which isn't being released here until June 15th for whatever reason), and I'm really excited!
She also brought me an OPI polish that I'd been wanting and a nailpolish remover with a pretty interesting smell... ;)



This post is both the things Marie Louise brought me from Hamburg but also a couple of things I've picked up at MAC at home as well as a few GOSH things I just found on sale today :)


MAC To The Beach look + tutorial!

Who's excited about the MAC To The Beach collection?! :D

FOTD: Orange NEON!

I haven't touched my neon colors in forever!
I'm not super happy with the way the colors look together, but it was definitely fun to play around with them! :D
And that's the great thing about makeup! It's easy to take off if you don't like it! :)

FOTD: Prêt-à-Papier

Since the Prêt-à-Papier collection just released here last week, we still have to wear the products at work.
I always get bored pretty quickly when we have to wear certain products - especially when all the products are neutrals!

Don't get me wong. I still think the Prêt-à-Papier collection offers some great products, but I prefer to be able to wear fun bright looks to work :P

My favorite thing though: I really liked the lip combination I did! :)
I bet you can't guess what I'm wearing :P

Sunday, May 16, 2010

FOTD: Velvet Vampire

I'm still really excited about Fyrinnae so here's another look with some of their products! :)

I filmed a tutorial but I'm not sure if this look is actually exciting enough to upload a tutorial for, so let me know what you think :)
Edit: I uploaded the tutorial! ;)

The tutorial for yesterday's look is up on YouTube as well :)

FOTD: Sugarpill Royal Sugar

I actually filmed a tutorial for this look, but I won't have time to edit+upload until tomorrow.


More Fyrinnae Love: Swatches!







I'm obsessing a little over all the gorgeous Fyrinnae eyeshadows - in case you hadn't noticed ;)


I'm still amazed at how big a color selection they have and how complex and unique their shadows are. They're really just gorgeous! :)


This time, I also have a swatch of one of their Lip Lustres to share. I'm really looking forward to trying it out on my lips :)


Let's get on to the swatches ;)


Pretty colors make me happy! :D


I just received another Fyrinnae order in the mail!
23 eyeshadow samples, 1 free eyeshadow sample and a mini lip lustre.
Am I excited?
YESSS :D

When I placed my order, it said on the website to allow 20-24 business days to process the order, but I got an e-mail after just 6 days saying that my order had shipped :)

I'm going post swatches later, but for now, here's a list of what I got! :)


Sunday, May 9, 2010

FOTD: Strip Poker and Bamboo Revolution

I'm still playing around with the Fyrinnae eyeshadows a lot :)

And I actually just got an e-mail the day before yesterday saying that my next Fyrinnae order is on its way! It said on the website that orders could take up to 24 business days to ship, but I placed my order on May 1st and I got the e-mail saying it had shipped on May 7th!
Hope it'll be here SOON! :)

Zoffe's favorites: April '10



As with everything else I have going on at the moment, this post is super late ;)
And, as always, I'm sorry.
But! Even though it's now May 9th, I still wanted to share my April favorites with you!

Fyrinnae tutorial!

I just uploaded my first tutorial using Fyrinnae :)

It's not super crazy or amazing, but I think it's  a fun look anyway, and I do love the colors :)

Keep reading to see tutorial, more pictures and list of products used!

Huge MAC "haul"!

An(other) long overdue post!



This post is about all the amazing new products I got at Update last week!
I wanted to post about everything earlier but just haven't had the time.
Blogging would be so much easier if I didn't have a job (or two) I had to take care of too, haha ;)

I'm going to post pictures of everything I got from the new collections as well as sharing my thoughts on everything.
The only collection that isn't out in the US yet is the To The Beach collection, but I did get things from Prep for Colour, Liberty of London and Pret-a-Papier as well :)

Firecracker vs. Hot, Hot, Hot!

That title probably doesn't make any sense unless you know it's the names of two MAC eyeshadows ;)

Hot, Hot, Hot came out with the Spring Colour Forecast collection earlier this year and Firecracker is being released with the To The Beach collection on May 27th (US launch date).

They do look a bit alike, so I thought I'd do a comparison swatch to show you that they are, in fact, different enough to have both ;) At least if you're like me, and love colors like these, haha!

Firecracker on the left. Hot, Hot, Hot on the right.

FOTD: Cut crease with Goldmine and Violet

Another look I did for work at MAC :)
I started out not really knowing what I wanted to do but I ended up quite liking it :)

Oh... And I love Money, Honey dazzleglass <3
