Went to a different ULTA than I usually do after getting my hair trimmed today. There was a counter for Laura Geller, I hadn't swatched any before so I checked out the little baked eyeshadow quad, baby cakes. This green gold Sage shadow sold it to me alone. I had difficulty getting decent swatch pictures of all this, I tried a good 4 times. I think a lot of it is that most of the shades are pretty due to their small glitter. Far left is swatched on the LA Splash sealer/base, middle swatch is on the sealer/base and wet, far right is wet and not on the base but blended out. Applying the shadow wet and on the base/sealer were almost exactly the same effect. Interesting.
Petrilude had a quick tip tutorial for glitter application, he recommended the LA Splash eyeshadow base/sealer - ULTA had a sale of buy 2 get 1 free so I figured I'd grab it. Also got one of their glitters in Golden Tangerine (gold, peachy, green, red glitter) and an Enlightened creamy shadow base in Nude.
Finally also caved on a Stila lip gloss 3 pack, I picked up the package and saw the golden shimmer in one of the glosses and I have a Jordana lip gloss in the same brush-on form factor that I enjoy.. couldn't resist!
Funny little sidenote, I kept wondering why the holes in the glitter were shaped like a 5.. er, duh. Finally noticed when taking pictures it was LA.
I just looked at these photos, and I saw the Stila lipgloss.....GWASH! That stuff is incredble! (A little think and sticky) I use it with chapstick though... :]ReplyDelete
Lovely blog! Just lovely
Definitely agree on the sticky-factor of the Stila gloss. I wore the pink grapefruit shade all day at work today, pretty good staying power through countless cups of coffee, only reapplied every 2-3 hours. :) Also lips never fully dried out which is a big bonus for me having mega chronic dryness. Only downside to me of stickiness is windy conditions and loose hair.
