80s Child in a Big City

About a month or so ago Vee from Glamour Doll Eyes announced that the Big Cities and 80s Child collections would be going bye-bye. That then started me on a mini freak out as I had been wanting these sets for ages, but had never bought them because I am lame and cheap. Anywho, when they were put on sale they went blazing fast, but I was thankfully able to snatch up a few and those are what I have swatched for you today. I really,really,really,REALLY hope they make a come back someday as there were a few that I was unable to get during the sale that I would love to own one day. I will now get into the swatches and look out at the end for something special!

How cute are those lids??




L-R Daydream, Jerrica, Romper

Top Row L-R: Miami, Philadelphia, Denver
Bottom L-R: Las Vegas, Pittsburgh

Denver: Such a gorgeous color loaded with pretty sparklies

Pittsburgh: Lovely gold/green

Philadelphia: Gorgeous!

Miami: A really fun yellow with pink sparkles

Las Vegas:  Really pretty green

Denver again less blurred out.

I could of sworn I got pics of the Big Cities lids, but I guess I did not. :/ I will take some and update this post when I add them.

On to the little surprise, I was able to get  5gram jar versions of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia! They are in the regular GDE jar with sifters in them. I took the usual shrink wrap off by accident as when I got them I had gotten a few other order from places and in my excitement caused by new makeup I took it off, but assure you they are unused and were actually bought for the purpose of a little giveaway! How do you win you ask? Well you  just comment on the post for this blog link on my Facebook Page and I will choose a winner using Only one comment per person please and please feel free to share the page with your friends! Winner will be chosen on Friday March 23rd.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Glamour Doll Eyes of the month colors.

Glamour Doll Eyes started a subscription plan back in January where you will get an exclusive shadow that is only available for a certain time. People who subscribe get the color shipped to them before it is available to the general public. There are two different subscription levels, a three and six month. The 3 month is $15.00 and the 6 month is $24.00, the prices include shipping and I think is a really good price being full size jars are usually $6.00 with $2.97 first class shipping. If you are a lover of GDE, I suggest you give it a go. Below you will find swatches of January- March's of the month colors and I will start doing a post every month when I receive that month's color for you guys. :) Onward!

Resolution: January's OTM (my fav so far)

Heedless Heart: February's OTM

Inspired: March's OTM



Heedless Heart

L-R Resolution, Heedless Heart, Inspired
Each color is pigmented and applies smoothly, I haven't used Inspired yet, but will try and post pics of some looks with them soon. Heedless Heart and Resolution both blended well the times I have used them and am glad to have them in my collection.

Up next the few 80's child and Big Cities shadows I was able to grab up when Vee was selling the rest of the stock.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and are careful during your St. Patrick's day festivities.

Moi Minerals Valentine's Day collection!

This is my first post about Moi Minerals, sadly my pictures for my Holiday collections which was my first purchase from them got deleted so I need to re-do those and will post them when I have them done. (Better late than never right?) Moi is an awesome company, every transaction I have done with them has been as pleasant as can be and I look forward to expanding my collection with more of Holly's line. They have everything a girl could possibly need over there, plus a new line of Highbeam shadows that are to die for and are what I have for you today. Well 3 of them anyway. (so far) Shipping is pretty fast for coming from Canada and the always come packaged securely. *Note they do not normally come with sifters from what I have experienced, but saw a post the other day and believe you can request them be added in the notes. On to the sparkly pics!

LOTD for 3/15/2012

 I have not been wearing much makeup lately and have been sticking with just foundation and mascara for work which is why I have not posted many LOTDs. Here is my look for today using Maybelline's color tattoo creme shadow in Bold Gold. :)

Full face!

I packed on the Bold Gold to the lid and blended it out into the crease and lightly swept it  on my brow bone for highlight. Waterline is also a color tattoo in Audacious Asphalt.

I hope you enjoyed this super quick look! I really like these shadows by Maybelline and will get up some swatches and a review when I can. They have great wear, are fun colors and can be used for an assortment of things. ( I love multipurpose items!)

Products used:
Eye: Maybelline Color Tattoo creme shadow in Bold Gold
Waterline: Maybelline Color Tattoo creme shadow in Audacious Asphalt
Mascara: Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes masacara
Foundation: Tarte Amazonian clay 12 hour foundation in Tan -Deep
Blush: Beauty From the Earth blush in Tango
Lips: I can not remember the name of the gloss, I think it might be a Covergirl gloss all the writing is worn off on it. lol

Hope you guys and dolls have a lovely Thursday afternoon!
