Review & Swatches: Clio Kill Cover Pro Artist Liquid Highlighter

My love of liquid highlighters and pinky highlighters has far from ended! I recently got the Clio Kill Cover Pro Artist Liquid Highlighter and it's a neutral pale pink shimmery highlighter that is natural and perfect for strobing. Along with the liquid highlighter, Clio also includes a blending puff/sponge to help diffuse the product. There is 6 grams of product in each tube and I bought mine from Jolse for ~ $10.

Review: Cosmetea Moisture Care Tea Cleanser in Black Tea + Omija

My first foray into cleaning sticks! Memebox kindly sent me the Cosmetea Moisture Care Tea Cleanser in Bleack Tea + Omija* for free to review as part of their Memebox Ambassador program and I was so excited to try it out. This cleansing stick works as a makeup remover and cleanser and so it's great as a travel skincare product. There is 65 grams of product and retails for $19 on the Memebox website here.

Makeup Party: Teal-ing Pretty

Get it? Feeling Pretty? Teal-ing Pretty? :D

Anyway. I saw a gorgeous traditional black smokey eye look with black lips on Instagram... Attempted that and then it turned into a teal halo eye look with a teal ombre black look. I mostly wanted to use the Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Lumi everywhere on my face and I achieved that! I have it on my eyes, lips, and cheeks!

Because my contouring looked muddy last time, I also attempted to give it another try but this time with way too many products. I'm pretty proud of my contour and highlight but I wouldn't wear this much in real life because I spent way too much time trying to add and remove dimension from my face.

Review & Swatches: Pat McGrath Lust 004 Lipsticks in Flesh 2 and Venom 2

I initially thought I wouldn't too be too interested in Pat McGrath products mostly because they're too editorial for me, but I was super happy when she released the Lust 004 Single Lipsticks in some gorgeous shades. Don't get me wrong - I love her makeup style and looks, but they always seemed more runway than everyday. The shades I ended up getting are Flesh 2 and Venom 2 and they're both gorgeous. The Pat McGrath single lipsticks contain 1.5 grams / 0.05 ounces of product and retail for $25.

Review & Swatches: Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Penelope

As mentioned in my Sugarpill haul post, I've been wanting the Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Penelope for the longest time. It was always sold out on both their website and Beautylish and so I'm so excited to finally have it in my hands. It is a beautiful super metallic copper and according to Sugarpill, the particles are bigger to give the product a "mega sparkle." Penelope contains 4 grams of product and retails for $13.00.

Favorites: August 2016!

It's still pretty hot in Southern California, but my makeup has definitely been moving towards autumn. I'm a general warm makeup lover, but I've really been bringing out all the warm and "fall/autumn" type of colors in anticipation of the season change.
