Look of the day: New Years Eve

 

I know I rarely post looks of the day but lately I have been getting more into makeupbee.com and have been making an effort to take pictures of the makeup I do.  For Christmas I received the naked palette 1. I know I am about three years late on that and the naked palette 2 has just come out, but I was never really in dire need of the naked palette.  I always had all the neutrals I needed with the Yaby dramatically neutral palette (and still do)

But the naked palette I asked for just so I had something I could always bring with me , because I have always been a neutral girl, and really its everything I hoped for.

This look was what I wore out on new years eve this year, I used Yaby pearl paints for the white, and used the naked palette for the cut crease and the smokey bits, and even used virgin as the highlight on my cheeks. Maybelline eyestudio lasting drama gel for the liner, and then lafemme blush from the premade palette for my blush.

What did you wear on new years eve?!

Lime Crime Cancels Pro Discount

Unfortunately Lime Crime has recently cancelled their Pro Discount, much to many peoples dismay and outrage.  You can still get a discount through naimies (information under the discounts tab in the same post as the old lime crime discount info.)

I for one have no idea why they would cancel their pro discount, as their products are all ready extremely expensive, and from what I have seen have so many dupes, and competitors that are cheaper and have similar or better results.  I know I don’t want to pay 17$ for a lipgloss, when I can buy a similar one from revlon for half the price, plus no shipping costs.

I have been reading quite a bit about the drama surrounding the brand, and have really made up my mind after reading about how they responded to and treated temptalia, that I am going to source other options and avoid lime crime all together.

I usually use OCC Liptars for bright colors anyway, as they are pretty much my HG lip product.

But if you are looking for another product similar to lime crime in that they have bright colors in lipstick form, I have heard good things about Ka’Oir, though I haven’t tried those lipstick yet.

They can be found at: http://www.kaoir.com/ if you want to take a look
