Sale Alert – Coastal Scents 88 Palette

19 Jan

OMG.  This is SOOOO worth it.

I use this puppy almost every day.  The colors are awesome, have great staying power – they are comparable to MAC or other high end shadows, especially if you use eye shadow primer.  (I love the NYX HD eyeshadow primer, its cheap and awesome.)

Here is photographic evidence.  Me wearing one of the dark greens.  LOOK AT THE COLOR PAYOFF!!!!

NYX HD Eyeshadow Base- UPDATE!

8 Jul

In case you didn’t know, the NYX HD is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Primer Potion.  You can read all about it in one our Dupe Wars posts— HERE!

Anyway, I have been using this product for a few months now and I love it.  Over the weekend I went swimming in the afternoon so I already had makeup on.  My eyeshadow, thanks to this magic NYX sauce stayed on even after I had been in the pool for a while.  I even swam underwater a bunch and got splashed by 8yr olds.

Don’t believe me, here is the photographic evidence:Image the eyeshadow is Coastal Scents.  It was Golden yellow on the top of the lids and green on the bottom.  The green is gone as you can see, but I didn’t use the primer there.  But the yellow is staying strong.

The eyeliner is water proof.  It Urban Decay.
