Hi guys! 🙂
I hope you all are doing well!
So I received my Boxycharm for September with 2 items missing from the box and then again in October there were 2 items missing as well. I have reported the issue to Aramex and there is an investigation being carried out. While I can’t do a Boxycharm unveiling/first impressions for September 2018, I have purchased the items that are missing for Octobers Boxycharm and once I receive those we will continue with the series.
In my September Boxycharm, I did receive the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale palette which I used to create this eye look. The palette consists of 12 cool toned eyeshadows. Some have good pigmentation while others are great. They are soft and blendable. There is a combination of mattes, shimmers and satin finishes in this palette. The packaging is cardboard with a magnetic closure. The eyeshadows are set within a drawing of a bird cage which I think is cute and unique. I am not a lover of cool toned eyeshadows but I do have an affinity for this palette and will continue to use it.
It retails for $35.00 and can be purchased on the Pretty Vulgar Cosmetics website using the link below:
This is a very simple, easy eye look, you could add some false lashes and winged eyeliner to take it up a notch if you want to…
Chocolate Smokey Eye:
- With a blending brush, I buffed the shade Flip Out into my crease and slightly above.
- With a flat eyeshadow brush, I then added Swoop and All Nighter to my eyelid and blended it into the crease. (When working with dark shades like these, try and keep them as low as possible in the crease. Taking them too high can give you racoon eyes, however, if you do go too high, pick up some of your foundation powder on a fluffy brush and blend out the edges.)
- Then picking up the shade Eye Spy on my finger tip, I patted it all over the eyelid.
- To highlight my inner corners and brow bone I used the shade Pillow Fight
- I then added some black eyeliner to my waterline and some mascara to my lashes.
For the lips I used 2 liquid lipsticks, Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Crucifix and Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Verona
- Taking Crucifix I outlined my lips and filled the outer corners.
- Then taking Verona, I added it to the center of my lips.
- I pressed my lips together and then using my finger I blended both shades into each other so that they give the appearance of one shade fading into the other.
I hope you enjoyed this review/makeup look. Let me know if you tried this palette and your thoughts on it. If you guys have any requests or recommendations on makeup products that you want me to try and review, let me know. 🙂 Have a great week and I’ll be back soon with another exciting post 😉
