Gosh, swatches!

Ola!

I have several unfinished posts at the moment, so this one is gonna be review/swatch post, with no makeup pictures.

So, some of you might remember my post about Gosh Gypsy collection.
I ended up buying only one lipgloss pencil at the time, but now I found them to be on sale, so I bought both palettes and Gypsy Red lipgloss pencil.

Here's the palettes first:

Bohemian Gypsy     -      Modern Gypsy


First Modern Gypsy:


This is quite interesting color, it's grayish blue with a hint of purple in it. Pigmentation is OK.

I assumed this one to be brighter, like lime, but this one is also a bit grayish, and almost matte. Pigmentation isn't that good.

This is the best color of this palette. It's bright orange, a bit paler than MAC Off the Page, which is still my favourite orange.

SHINY light blue, this one has the best pigmentation, maybe because it's the most shimmery of these.


And swatches:

Then Bohemian Gypsy palette:

Silvery gray, similar to MAC Divine Night and MAC Pandamonium. Good pigmention.


Pale red with good pigmentation.

This is quite interesting shade, kinda pink, but still grayish purpleish and all. I kinda like this :D

This is kinda like MAC Cranberry, but not so red, more this reminds me of MAC Heritage Rouge pigment.

And swatches:

Gosh Jumbo Lipgloss Pencil in Gypsy Red:



Then something else, my newest addition to MAC Paint Pot family, Fresco Rose:


Then Barbie loves Stila smudge pot in Purple Pumps, which I've been drooling over ever since I saw swatches of it online.
So now I finally have it.


Sure it's beautiful. Too bad the texture is so bad, that it's only usable as a base. Or al least I couldn't get it working as a liner. :/

And last but not least, my new awesome shoes!
I now it's almost september, and these are sandals, but they were on huuuge sale (-70%), so I bought these for next year <3

Ring, ring, win-win!

Hi everyone!

So I finally picked the winner of my birthday giveaway!

I always feel kinda bad that I can't give something to all of my readers, but unfortunately I'm not that rich :P

Anyway, random.org said the following:

And number 137 was...

ARAGREY!




Congratulations to her! And thank you all for participating!

Then a small tutorial:

How to make lips to look like this:


First nude lips, just a hint of foundation/ powder on them:

Then I line my lips with red pencil (even if it looks pink in the pic, it's really quite firetruck red). I used some brandless pencil, definately nothing fancy.
Note that I don't fill the middle part of the lip with pencil:


(Here the color shows up little better) Then I take black pencil. I usually use eye liner pencil, since i haven't found (nor do I really need) black lip pencil.
I carefully line the outer corners with black, also blend the black in well, so the result is smooth.
Again, do not put black in the middle of your lips:

Then finally add lipstick/ gloss, I used Illamasqua's Intence Lipgloss in Perform :


Then to eye makeup, here's my lately looks:

This is from the Gaga tutorial I did for my MSCHIC blog:

I changed the lipstick to Illamasqua Petulant:

My yesterday's look was brown, I tried to do something celebrities wear on red carpet sometimes, smokey, but still kinda neutral:



And today I finally wore COLORS.
MAC Partylicious, MAC If It Sparkles..., Fyrinnae Biker Chic and Fyrinnae Parental Advisory:

Then I had to go a bit goth <3:
