this long weekend found me home alone. no kids no boyfriend. so i decided to suppress my lonliness by making a giant make up haul. and this i did. On Friday i met facebook supplier shoe visons who granted me my wish with my full order which included. the much coveted two faced shadow insurance. in no specifice order the shoe visions haul included. 7 elf professional brushes, i elf studio contour brush, i wet n wild 8 pan palette, 2 wet n wild trio palettes, i elf 32 shadow palette, four elf quads with accompanying duo and liner brush, three nyx lip smacking lipstick and 20 empty jars for pressing my loose pigments. i was in heaven i felt like i could just fly away with the angels. of course knowing my self and my anxiety i couldnt wait till i got home to try stuff out so i went to kfc and had lucnh and opened my stuff. the first thing i tried was my shadow in surance. it was light as air and i tested it on my skin and also swatched it with and elf duo. it made the colours pop very nicely so that a 10 in my book. i also swatched my elf duos and the colours from the 32 palette.
when i got home i did a look using the duo with the navy blue and lighter blue and the a look using the blues from the 32 palette. i guess i was feeling blue thats why i used the blues. i was a bit tired and fell asleep with them around 10 pm and got up at 2:30 and i was amazed they had not smudged and didnt crease or anything. i believe this is due to the two faced shadow insurance and i also used amplified as the base for it. but i must say that these shadows will stand the test of time once you have a good primer and base.
today i went to the mall and i decided i would go all dressed up with my make up so i used wet n wild trio in im getting sunburnt. in my haul i had also gotton some mil of magnesia from a pharmacy as i was told this sets ur makeup very well and keeps u from being oily.i must say that my face although a bit greasy its a far cry from when i didnt use milk of magnesia and as i type i still have on my make up that i applied at 11am. the eyeshadow has not creased or faded i have not done a touch up since i applied it. i must say that two faced shadow insurance and wetn wild cosmetics are products one shouldnt live without. if you dont have them get them. i also used nyx white base with pearl to make my shimmery colours pop. and indeed they did. when swatche dthe wet n wild colours are very pigmented these trios are amazing. i hope to have a whole collection and a trio is $25 um actually dont quote me on that because i cant remember the exact price but i dont think it was more than $35. i also swatched the lipsticks i got from her they were really nice and soft and smooth, nyx lip smacking lipstick although $25 is worth it as it gives a really nice soft finish to your lips. i liked those a lot and im not a fan of lipstick.
ok so the picture below is me at pm this evening, this is just to illustrate how well the primer worked. my face is greasy but remember this is after 10 hrs so in my opinion the milk of magnesia worked because i only just started to produce oil an hour ago i too was shocked at hour my usually oily face was grease less.
