New Products: NYC, Wet N Wild and Urban Decay

IHere's some of the most recent products  I've purchased:

NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm: These smell like apples!! They are super cute with little apples in the center I just couldn't resist!!

Two on the left

Applelicious Pink

It's a Rosie pink color that looks really pretty on 

Blushing Golden

It's more of a frosted light pink/beige color

Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color in Click On My Hyperpink

I really wanted a bright bubblegum pink color but this is like Nicki Minaj pink. There's a few things I don't like about this lip gloss the smell and its really sticky and a pain in the butt to take off. 

Urban Decay Liner in 1999 and Lucky

They look like this:
1999 is a pretty purple/gold color and Lucky is a coppery orange color both are just gorgeous!!

Dianna Agron: This Is The End Premiere Look

This is an interesting look and like the other Dianna Agron makeup I did just recently it's one that I've been trying to recreate for a while because the colors didn't flatter me and while orange and pink is a strange combo it can be a fun switch up from a neutral palette and each color really compliments blue and green eyes. 

Here's the look:

Geek Chic Cosmetics Swatches

This is my haul from Geek Chic Cosmetics and I didn't actually order these all at the same time but I thought about just posting them all together. A little about this line is that they are 100% vegan and cruelty free which is awesome!! But they have the greatest themes for their collection: True Blood, My Little Pony, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rocky Horror, Dr Who and others. I order the sample sizes and usually they are $1.25 for a good size sample.  

Blues and Greens

From top clockwise:
•Judgement Bolt- it's described as a grey pearl with turquoise sheen, but see more as a silvery-blue. 
•I'm Going Home- inspired by Rocky Horror this is a pretty teal color with vibrant green duochrome. It is not lip safe and is know to stain mildly if not used with base. 
•Glass Cannon-light blue with silver sparkle
•Bigger On the Inside-one of my fave colors!!! Looks teal but really an olive green with gold duochrome.

MAC Temperature Rising: Bare My Soul inspired look

This look was inspired by MACs Temperature Rising Collection but the Bare My Soul quad which has a lot more golds and browns. I thought it would be cool to add some teal into the look because When in Rio has a touch of teal in it so i thought I would be an appropriate pairing. 

Here's my look:

Here's what I used:

•Base- Urban Decay 247 pencil in Sin
•Lid- instead of using Bare My Soul, i used a yellow/white scrambled color from a palette i got from Forever 21 in the inner part and instead of using Romantico, I used Urban Decay in Midnight Rodeo on the outer portion of the lid. 
•Crease- instead if using Friendly, I used Wet N Wild compact Comfort Zone (crease color)
•Highlight- Wet N Wild Walking On Eggshells (brow)
•Liner- On the top I used Jessie's Girl in Brown Sugar instead of using Power chrome pencil in Copper Strip. On the lower lash line instead of using When in Rio, I used Urban Decay in Lounge and Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette (defined color) to give it a little more teal I used Archetype Minerals in Night Jaguar and applied it wet. On the waterline I used Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Junkie. 
•Mascara- Maybelline Collossal Cat Eye

•Primer- NYX Photo Primer in clear
•Concealer- Urban Decay 247 in CIA

•Blush- instead of using Ripe For Love, I used Stila Wonderful in Waikiki palette in North Shore. 
•Bronzer- Physicians Formula in light-medium

• instead of using Caliente, I used a lipgloss from Femme Couture called Sahara Rose, it's got a great sparkle but has a slight aqua tinge to it. 

Dianna Agron: Green Glamour Look

I've been waiting to do this look for a long time now.. Well actually I have done it quite a few times but none of them I was really that satisfied with. Some were just way too teal for my liking but I finally got it.  I tried to dupe the actually colors Dianna's MUA Gianpaolo Cecilato used which they used Dolce & Gabbana shadow duo in Laguna

Here's my look:

Here's what I used:

•Base- NYX Jumbo Pencil in Lemon
•Lid- Geek Chic Cosmetics in Bigger on the Inside
•Crease- bring Bigger on the inside up onto the crease
•Highlight- Wet N Wild Walking on Eggshells (brow)
•Liner- on top I used NYC liquid liner in black and on the bottom I used Ulta in Key West on the inner part and then I used Bigger on the inside on the outer lower lash line. I also used Prestige liner in Pay Day and Urban Decay in Junkie
•Mascara- Maybelline Collossal Cat Eyes

•Primer- NYX photo loving primer
•Concealer- Urban Decay in CIA
•Blush- Hard Candy in Living Doll

•NYC in Sugar Plum
