    That means a light skyblue, UD Radium, MAC’s Deep Truth, Phloof. I really liked this blue combo :)

    I think you mean thBalm ShadyLady vol. 2? I don’t believe that there is a Balmbini vol. 2, unless it’s not on the website yet :)

    Bobbi Brown Pewter Chrome from browbone to lashline; Chanel Epatant “cream” shadow on lower lid and into the crease; Edward Bess Dusk e/s in outer corner of lid, smoked into center. MAC Feline eye liner and D&G eye liner in Agave (grayish green). Bobbi Brown pot rouge in Velvet Plum; MAC Azalea Blossom to set. Chanel Vita-Aqualumiere foundation over NARS primer. On lips, Chanel RA Extrait de Gloss in Insolente. Almost a 15-minute face, except I had to answer the phone in between steps. Oh, mascara was Diorshow in black.

    I got a request for pics of me in my glasses, so (remembering the post here), decided to do a nice purple eye look to bring out my green eyes (which always photograph as brown because the cosmos has a sense of humor). The eye look turned out pretty pointless as far as the pics went, but looked hot in the mirror. I really liked how my lips looked, too. Too bad I forgot I was wearing the world’s dorkiest shirt…

    Wash/highlight: Maybelline Lux Lilac. Lid: UD Mayhem (from Book of Shadows Vol. I). Crease: NYX Purple Velvet Jumbo Eye Pencil. Liner: NYX Sensual e/s, well-smudged. Two coats of NYX Doll Eye Volume Extreme Mascara. Cheeks: NYX Glow Cream Blush. Lips: HC All American Girl Plumping Serum l/g.

  7. This week I did a purpley-brown smokey eye as Twilight: Breaking Dawn look! My friend and I went to a midnight show and had a lovely time. http://sara-sayswhat.blogspot.com/2011/11/sara-says-well-start-with-forever.html

    I used quite an eclectic mix of eyeshadows for this look. There’s an indie brand in there (antoinette’s revolution cosmetics), an ELF quad, a BE loose shadow, and UD pencils as a base. On my face I had to use some of the Physician’s Formula happy heart products just to be ironic. ;) There’s a photo of everything I used at the link. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a full-face of makeup! I had a lot of fun with this look.

    I think my favourite was Sweet Sienna pigment on lids, Arctic Grey in the inner corners, Teal pigment in the crease, plumage and a little Urban Decay Perversion in the outer v, and I can’t remember the highlight shade! Soft Sable on lips (I just LOVE this colour!).

    I picked up Sweet Satisfaction (MAC Pro Longwear eyeshadow) earlier this week and I’ve been wearing it on the lid with Charcoal Brown on the outer 2/3 of my lid and in the crease. I love the polished sophistication of the nude/natural look it gives and this is rescuing Charcoal Brown for me. Depending on my mood, I’ve lined with Gosh Metallic Brass pencil or MAC Birds & Berries shadow used like a liner. I’ve been wearing Pinch o’Peach a lot this week, just because it’s on the top of my blush pile and Clarins Grenadine on my lips.

    Too Faced In the Buff eye shadow on the lid and Teddy Bear eye shadow in the crease with Lancome art liner in black to line the upper lid.
    Mac Mocha blush and Estee Lauder double wear foundation on face.
    Dior Nocturne on lips!

    MAC Morning Frost PP, shimmery taupe eyeshadow from Inglot, L’Oreal Million Lashes.
    Physicians’ Formula Happy Booster Blush
    MAC Lovelorn

  12. the Balmbini Vol. 2 ?! I’m dying to see how it looks like & everything! I hope you do some swatches on it, or well, show some pictures at least! :) How is it compared to the first? I’m so excited!

    TFSI Candlelight, UD Scratch, UD Shag, UD Radium eyeliner

  14. I did another neon look this week I love. I’m so addicted to my BYS Neon Palette. Yellow in the inner corner, blended into bright orange, blended into hot pink, with a bright violet in the outer corner and crease. I got tons of compliments on it when I hit Ulta that day.

    tutorial and lots of pics

    This was lipstick week, so it was all about the bold lip this time around. Wednesday’s vampy lip was probably my favorite.

    Face: Maybelline FIT foundation in 115, Maybelline FIT blush in rose on cheeks (blended with a slightly darker pink).

    Eyes: Urban Decay Sin on lid, Buck in the crease, Smog in the outer corner, Victoria Jackson beige in the brow.

    Lip: L’Oreal lip liner in burgundy, Covergirl Lip Perfection in Euphoria, Revlon ColorBurst lipgloss in Bordeaux on top.

    On my lid I used Urban Decay’s junkshow, crease was half truth and the outer v I used a bit of blackout. Used Lise Watier HD feline eyeliner and Lancome’s deficile mascara. Water line was filled in with Mac’s black khol pencil, and I used a bit of Midnight Rodeo in my inner corner for some glamour. On my lips I wore a berry shade from Lancome, but I have forgotten the name.

    UD 24/7 liquid liner in Woodstock, MAC Smolder, Maybelline Lots Of Lashes mascara

  18. Line both waterline with Stila Kajal eye liner in Smokey Quartz, and set it with a By Terry eyeshadow in a dove grey color. Boots no. 7 exceptional definition mascara. The Body Shop Roseflower blush. Guerlain meteorites 03 Beige Chic all over. NSC Riveting Rose lipstick!

    Wore this look to work on Friday and got compliments from my colleagues! :)

    Waw, gorgeous look! Does the Esthée Lauder’s kohl stay on well? I love this teal colour!

    This week I actually kept my look low-key since I started using this awesome skincare line( Renee Rouleau) and I’m enjoying the view I see in the mirror without a full-look of make-up. Basically I just stuck to wearing Bobbi Brown’s mineral foundation, mascara and Covergirl lipstick in “Hot”. A nice vibrant red.
