So, so sparkly

I've been an absolute glitter, shimmer and sparkle whore lately. I was doing the matte thing for a while and now I'm back onto glitz and wowza.

So I've got 2 FOTDs for you. The first is with items from Mac's Fabulous Felines (only 2, I didn't get much) and it was for my birthday dinner this past weekend. I was wearing a vintagey pinup dress so I matched my makeup (pic of the dress coming as well...)

Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Revlon matte e/s Vintage Lace, Mac Superslick eyeliner in Smokey Noir, Maybelline Lash Stiletto
Cheeks: Mac Stereo Rose
Lips: Mac Liquid Lurex lipstick and Mac Extra Amps dazzleglass (this was SO SPARKLY)

Why does my hair ALWAYS ruin photos?! I'll take a perfectly good pic and there's a strand of hair in my face. Every. Single. Time.

My dress for the evening (excuse my diva face):

I love those shoes but we ended up waiting in queue for a table at dinner for almost an hour with no place to sit, so my feet were killing me very quickly.

Next up is my look from yesterday. The color combo was actually Rob's idea... he shouted silver and green!! So I did it. It totally didn't match with what I was wearing but I really loved the look. My only problem was with the Lancome shadow, I seem to have coverage issues with it... anyone tried that one and had the same issue?

Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk, Lancome Style Section, Mac Swimming (whoop! Got it to show up!), Mac Sassy Grass, Mac Humid mixed with Mink and Sable, Mac Humid used to line, Maybelline Lash Stiletto
Cheeks: Mac Prim and Proper blush
Lips: Wet n Wild 547B, NYX gloss in Chandelier

I tried to apply the colors in a diagonal shape, especially with Swimming... you can't really see it in the photos.

See the coverage issues with the silver color? I don't know if it creases that fast or what.

That's all for now! :)


  1. lovely fotds! and lovely dress. don't worry my hair always ruins my face too. I always have hair in my face. mine get pretty fizzy too so it's hard to control.
