Copper Eyeshadow Look // Maybelline Hyper-Diamonds palette

Hey There!

So in todays blog post i’m going to be showing you my most recent eye look i created. Which is really just a copper eye look, which i know copper is currently in trend now ❤

This is the palette i’m talking about. It’s in the shade BR-1 and as you can see has several different shades/ tints of copper, coral and gold. First off i don’t really need to do swatches because the colour and pigmentation you see here is totally what you get! You get the exact colour!

Now i’m going to talk about how i achieved this look, i’m talking brushes and all.

So firstly i took this peachy golden coral colour and patted that onto my eyelid as my base with my Napoleon Perdis SET eyeshadow brush.

I then went and moved onto my transition colour that i also with on my outer corner just a tiny bit. Which is this Purple plum type colour. Also guys all these shadows are super glittery and shimmery! The gold shade even has specks of chunky glitter! ooh!

Then for all over my lid i used this really true copper shade which is what really brought this look to life! i used my Naploeon Perdis SET eyeshadow/ eye definer duo brush. And for this i used a patting technique again.

Then moving onto my brow bone. I used this white to off white cream colour. The brush i used was the Real Techniques eyeshadow brush once again.

And then i might’ve used that bottom gold colour but uh i don’t think i did.

This whole time i was doing my eyeshadow with pieces of tape at the sides of my eyes to 1. keep this look neat and 2. to add a sharp edge.

I then went onto using my Benefit Roller Lash mascara and coated my top and bottom lashes. And also added that true copper and plum colour under my bottom lashes.

And yes that is the completed look! Tell me in the comments if you have created something similar yourself or if you will pick up this palette!

Makeup Haul // Review | Caiitlinmaree

Hey There!

So first off i just wanted to say Happy New Year i hope you will all have an amazing year! xx Secondly i’m just going to post when i feel like it. I felt like it was a chore to do every morning and i wasn’t enjoying it, so i’ve decided to post at least 2 times a week whenever.

But in todays post i’m going to be sharing you the products i bought around 1-2 days ago

IMG_0228

I got everything 1/2 price at Chemist Warehouse. Though the three essence products weren’t half off because i got them else where.

Maybelline:

The Nudes Palette: $24, purchased for $12

So the first product i got from Maybelline is there ‘The Nudes’ palette. I don’t know if they aren’t actually pigmented or i’m just too use to using shimmery metallic eyeshadows (which are super pigmented). So to be honest i’m quite disappointed with it but, i do like using the matte eyeshadows in the crease, and only the crease. I just feel it works well there for me.

Hyper Diamonds Palette: BR-1 $16, purchased for $8

I then got another eyeshadow palette… yeah.

This palette on the other hand is very pigmented and has a range of amazing shades that i will wear all the time! Ah! I love it. Theres purple plum shade, a white cream colour, two pinky shades (though the one on the left is a little more like rose gold to copper) and then lastly there is a gorgeous gold! So pretty!

Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil: Minimalist $8, purchased for $4

This colour though! It is now my favourite ‘Colour Drama’ pencil. It such as nice purple pink colour and makes your teeth look a lil whiter. It’s super pigmented and easy to apply and take off.

Revlon:

Photo ready Sunlights face illuminator: 100 Bare Light$24, purchased for $12

Now this product i like but also don’t like, so like 50 50. It’s very subtle maybe too subtle? I feel like it isn’t a strong illuminator but good if you’re starting with makeup because you can’t do any wrong with it. Though i don’t think it’s worth $24 dollars. Thank goodness i got it for $12.

Essence:

NEW Sheer and Shine lipstick: All About Cupcake ❤ Purchased for around $4.20

Ah, this lipstick is so gorgeous! I use to be against Essence because they don’t always have packaging seals on their products and that they look ‘cheap’ but i was pleasantly surprised when i tried there ‘Nauti blush’ that they are truly amazing! This lipstick was $4.20? So cheap! I am always a bit curious if they are made in the same factory as MAC because their lipsticks smell exactly the same… hmm? Anyway i love it!

Liquid Lipstick: 03 Almost Real, purchased for around $4.20

This liquid lipstick is again so amazing! Very pigmented and goes on and comes off smoothly. If you’re looking for a new liquid lipstick this is recommended by me! ❤

NEW Multi – Action volume mascara: Black, purchase for $5.10

This is totally a dupe for Roller Lash! This even separates your lashes more   though, which i do like. But iI still love RollerLash… of course! he reason i bought this was because i the cool pop art font. Basically i was like a bug which saw a big light… in this instance it was yellow pop art. I really light the different packaging of this product. All in all a fantastic mascara.

L’Oreal Paris:

Lipgloss/ cream formula: 102 Scream and Shout, $22 purchased for $11

Yay! Another L’Oreal lipgloss to the collection! i now own 4. This lipgloss is very pigmented and lasts quite awhile. Overall i just love it.

Les O’mbré’s Palette: E1 Beige Trench, $22 purchased for $12

Very pigmented, quality is amazing, lasts a long time and is really worth purchasing! ❤

So that comes to the end of this makeup haul let me know what makeup products i should buy next. It doesn’t matter if it’s ‘High end’ or ‘Drugstore’ x

Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! xx

Maybelline NewYork Browsatin Review | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

In todays blog post I’m going to be doing yet another review and this time it’s a Maybelline NewYork product! ❤ It is the Browsatin pencil.

Basically all you do it you take the side with the pencil type wax and draw on your brows to define your shape then you go in with the powder/ satin and go over the top.

brow

Now for the Cons and Pros:

Pros:

– The lighter you press the lighter the colour will be/ the harder you press the harsher it’ll be.

– Comes 3 shades: Dark blonde, Medium brown, Dark brown (I’m medium).

– The pencil wax has very good precision.

– Looks pretty natural.

Cons:

– The powder/ satin can get messy on your brows.

– Can get pricy depending on where you get it <3.

So that is the end of this Blog Post short n sweet! ❤
