Darling Girl Cosmetics 1st Order - Swatches and Review

By cristalena56 · September 3, 2013

<strong><span style="font-size: large;">For awhile now i have noticed the name Darling Girl Cosmetics throughout the beauty world reading blogs, facebook beauty pages, etc... Wasn't til I saw a look XoXo Alexis Leigh posted a month ago that I discovered what amazing colors they have. I had seen a few looks here and there using some of their products but this one had sparkly duochrome shades used in it. I was immediately mesmerized by them. I couldnt click on their website fast enough.

</span><span style="font-size: large;">Once I got there and started looking through the eye colors with my jaw dropping with every click, I knew I had to make an order. I decided to buy a few jars and also ordered a review kit which was on sale for a $1.00 (squeal!!). I thought that deal was super awesome for getting to try out 5 different products. I was going to order one of the lipglosses that looked awesome but they were sadly all sold out. I like that this site has a wishlist, so I can goto it when I want to order something and pick out from the beauties I had already discovered. I am on my 11th page. 

Such cute wrapping!! I love the logo!!

This was the review kit I got. I chose 5 shadow samples and they came in the normal sample baggies. I believe each has an 1/8 of a tsp. 

*Sweet Savage: Matte Midtone carnation pink
*Rich Gurl: A sky blue thats on the periwinkle side with a green duochrome. Its very sparkly!!
*Persuasion: Medium lavender base with gold shift and turquoise sparkles. 
*Unicorn: A shimmery irridescent silvery white but when applied its a irridescent pale pink, maybe even a little purplish with turquoise sparkles.  This was my favorite color I recieved. I already went through the sample and had to order a jar of it. :)
*Obviously a Wig: Magenta with a blue/purple duochrome. I love this color!! I think it makes an awesome lip gloss color!!

</a>Dry swatch, Elf Primer, and then over UD Liner Zero

Love the flowers!

The Petit jars cost $2.50 and they come with approximately 1/4 tsp in a 3 gram jar that includes a sifter. The full size comes in a 5g jar including sifter with approx. with a 3/4 tsp of shadow.

Basket Case: Bright purple with turquoise shift and gold sparkles.

Dark Crystal: Deep graphite with color shifts from lilac, red/silver to greenish-blue with a red/pink "diamond dust" sparkle.
London Calling: Indigo base with heavy red shift.

My Little Pony: Pale, pastel lavender with green shift and aqua and pink iridescence.

<span style="font-size: large;"><strong>No Sign of Life: Oceanic blue with a brilliant grass-green shift and baby green sparkles.

Dry Swatch with Finger, Elf Primer, and UD Liner Zero

Free Sample time!!

Every package comes with a couple baggie samples and stickers. Also when you make a purchase of $10 or more you get the weekly GWP (Gift with purchase) shade. 

Peachy Keen: Peach with pink sheen along with gold/green/purple sparkles. This was a gift with purchase shade but if you contact susan she might have more that you can purchase. 
*Bronze Dawn: Ruddy pinky mauve base with strong gold sheen 
*Leaping Lizards: <span>medium grey with golden green sheen that shifts to a grey with red/violet sheen

Thoughts: I love all these colors!! They are very sparkly. I find they work well with the glitter glue that I bought when i ordered from them a 2nd time. With all shadows I would say use a primer. These seemed to last a long time and are vibrant. I work in a stock room that only has a couple fans and no ac. I live in phx, so to give you a rough idea of the weather where I am at. I come home and my makeup has very minor creasing if at all. There can be a little fallout but not too bad. I love these and highly recommend their shadows. I can't wait to order more. I'm waiting til Sept. 6th to order some Halloween Shades from the Oh! The Horror Collection. :) I need to swatch these colors with DG glitter glue and will update this post with a pic. 

Couple Looks I Did:

Saturday EOTD - Friendship is Magic

By cristalena56 · September 2, 2013

I recently discovered 2 brands during the past month, Darling Girl Cosmetics and Impulse Cosmetics. I've already have made 3 small orders to DG and about to make a 2nd to IC. DG has a lot of duochrome shadows and blushes to choose from. You can order samples, petit jars, or full size jar. They also have an option to make a wishlist. I  found so many colors i like that my wishlist has 11 pages. Impulse cosmetics has duo chrome shadows, glitters, and their most popular item is their matte lipsticks. Im going to try the lipsticks out next.

One of the main colors I used fits the name of this look being that its called "My Little Pony".  One of my favorite toys from my childhood was of course My Little Ponys. The new generation comes nowhere close to being as good as the original from the 80s. I even remember watching the cartoon My Little Pony Tales. I remember even having a purple mlp stuffed animal that had brushable hair. Yes, I was an 80s/90s kid. :) 

I found a picture through google of the stuffed animal one i had. :) This one still has such pretty hair!

Of course I had to rock my MLP shirt while wearing this look. I found this top at DD's Discount for $3.99!! I couldnt believe how cheap it was since its a mlp official licensed shirt. I of course had to buy it. :)

Items Used:
*DG My Little Pony
*DG Basket Case
*DG The Count (from the upcoming Oh the Horror Collection)
*DG No Sign of Life
*DG Unicorn
*IC Penny Serenade
*IC Seduce Me
*BFTE Very Vanilla
*Inglot #77 Eye Liner
*Maybelline Rocket Mascara
*DG Obviously a Wig and Jordana ASAP on Lips

*Primer (UD Eden)
*Blend white base onto lid with fingers. (NYX JEP Milk)
*Apply MLP and Basket Case to Lid.
*With an angled eyeliner brush draw a line in the crease using The Count.
 *Then with a small dome crease brush blend Penny Serenade into the crease.
*Using the same brush blend Seduce me into the top of the crease.
*Apply more MLP to lid.
*Apply a teal eyeliner to lower lashline. (UD Flipside)
*Apply No Sign of Life to lower lashline.
*Apply Unicorn as a inner corner highlight. (i love this sparkly shade!!)
*Highlight browbone with Very Vanilla.
*Line upper lashline and waterline with Black Gel Liner. (Inglot 77)
*2 Coats of Mascara (Maybelline Rocket)

</a>Heres an upclose pic of my lips. I love this color as a lip color. <3 Its a magenta pink with a bluish purple duochrome. The Jordana ASAP gives it a pink sparkle. :) You can pick that gloss up from Walgreens for $1.99.

12 Makeup Essentials Any Makeup Enthusiast Should Own

By cristalena56 · June 10, 2013
When I'm reading comments on fb pages/blogs people asking about the must haves they should have in their makeup collection. I decided to make a list of my own. :)</p>

1. Eye Shadow Primer:

Every MUE (Makeup Enthusiast) should own a eye shadow primer. This helps with creasing, fading, and even can affect how the shadow is applied. 

My Picks:
Elf Shadow Primer ($1), Urban Decay Primer Potion ($12-$20), and NYX HD Shadow Primer ($7.00). 

2. Eyeliner:

I dont feel like my looks are complete now without a eyeliner. I find that black liner can go with many eye looks. Its my most used liner color. I like color liners usually for the waterline or to use as a base for eye shadows. They also can bring a punch to a more neutral look. Brown eyeliner is good for more neutral looks and white is good to put on your waterline to make your eyes look more awake/open. I thinkyou should at least have a black and a brown liner.

Pencils: I'm not a big fan of the pencil liner. I prefer to use this type for the waterline or as a shadow base. I find many pencil liners tug, more prone to smudging, and harder to get that perfect smooth straight line.

My Picks:
UD 24/7 Liners and NYX Eye Liners

Gel Liner: This would be my goto type of liner. I find that they last longer, apply darker, less smudging, easy to apply, etc.. 

My Picks:
Elf Studio Cream Liner, Mac Fluidline, and Tarte EmphasEyes Clay Liner.

Liquid: I have a love/hate relationship with liquid liners. If I had to choose my favorite look of liners, it would definitely be liquid. I like how smooth, bold, and shiny it can look. I find though my eyes can be sensitive to them and this either means bleeding in the inner corners or fading in the outer corners. I prefer the markers to the brush applicators since they are easier to apply. Theres a difference of one stroke compared to multiple strokes. Many artists also use liquid liners for their more artistry looks. (Lime Crime Uniliners are used a lot for this.)

My Picks:
Elf Liquid Liner, Essence Beauty Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, NYX Studio and Glam Liners.

3. White and Black Shadow Base:

White shadow base is good for making colors pop. Black shadow base is good for duo chrome shadows.

My Picks:
White - NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk and NYX White Shadow Base
Black - NYX Jumbo Pencil Black Bean or UD 24/7 Liner Zero

4. Blush:

I think you should have a blush in pink, peach, and a bronzer shade. I didnt use to wear blush for years and now my face isn't complete without it. I find a little swipe of color can bring a nice color/glow to your cheeks. It can also be used to make your face look slimmer. I find that different colors need a different color of blush. For more cooler colors (white, black, silver, blue, purple) i prefer to use a pink blush. For warmer colors (brown, orange, yellow, pink) to use a peach shade. I like red shades more for the more natural days to make it look like I got some sun. Bronzer can also bring a glow. I like to use it when I want to warm up my skin a little. I've yet to try the number 1 blush which is Nars Orgasm.

My Picks:
Pink - MAC Tippy (Dolly Mix)or Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Sweet Cheeks
Peach - Sally Hansen Poppy Love, Bourjois Lune d'or 35, or Covergirl Trublend Shimmering Sands
Bronze - Too Faced Pink Leopard or Benefit Hoola

5. Neutral Palette/Set

A neutral palette is good for everyday looks. When your on the go and need to do a 5 minute look, these are perfect. They are also good to make a eye look for a job interview/work. 

My Picks:
Urban Decay Naked Palette and BFTE Coffee Shop Set

6. Colorful Palette

These have a wide selection of different colors. Along with your neutral palette, you will have all the colors you need. These palettes have shimmer, matte, satin shadows depending on which palette you choose.

My Picks:
BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 2nd edition, Elf 100 Pc Palette,  BFTE 16 Pc Sample Set, Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette, or Coastal Scents Original Palette.

7. Lip Balm

I find this is important to keep lips moist and healthy. I use one of these before I apply a matte lip product since they can be drying. Its also something easy you can slip into your purse. They arent that pricey so if you end up losing it, you know you wont have to pay an arm and a leg to replace it. 

My Picks:
Chapstick or EOS

8. Lips

Just like Blushes I think you need certain shades in your collection. 

<span>Nude shades are typically worn when your having a dramatic look and you dont want to overpower your eye look with a bold lip color. It should be one level darker than your natural lips to create a subtle contrast. For fair skin use rosey hues to bring warmth, peachy beiges to play up medium tones, and more coppery shades to make darker complexions sparkle.

My Picks:
Urban Decay Super Saturated Gloss Glinda</p>

Reds can just add a little punch for an everyday look when applied lightly or heavier for a more glamourous look for a night out on the town. Berry reds flatter fair skin, a true red works great on medium tones, and a deeper orangey rouge pops on darker complexions

My Picks:
Revlon Cherry Ice or Mirenesse Lip Bomb 02

<span>Coral colors add a nice glow to your skin. Fair skin tones should use rosy corals, medium complexions should try vibrant melon hues, and darker skin tones look best with a gold-flecked version.

</span>My Picks:
Shiro Cosmetics Why Not Zoidberg or Revlon Just Bitten in Flame

Pinks i find to be a lot of fun to wear. I tend to go bold with the hot pink shades. I wear pink more then any other product. It will pair nicely with a bronze eye look for these summer months. It also can be used to add a punch to a more neutral look. When choosing a lipstick, you’ll want to select one with blue undertones if you have cooler skin, and if you have warm undertones, then you’re better suited for something more orange or red-based. Check out here for tips on finding the right pink shade.

My Picks:
Revlon Just Bitten Passion, MyGlam Gloss, Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Hot Pink

9. Makeup Brushes

I think every girl should invest some money into makeup brushes. You will find a huge difference using them compared to applying your makeup with those cheapy applicators that come with a lot of products. Some of them can be quite useless. I think you should have a shadow, crease, pencil, smudger, eyeliner, foundation, concealer, blush, and powder brush. A lot of makeup artists you see online normally use Sigma Beauty or MAC Cosmetics Brushes. I've yet to use these because they are kind of on the pricey side, but I hope to one day invest in these. 

My Picks:

10. Mascara

A eye look will never be complete without it. Mascara can darken, lengthen, curl, and/or define your lashes. I tend to like ones that arent very clumping, give length, and give my lashes that fake lash look.

My Picks:
Maybelline Colossal, Maybelline Falsies, Clinique Natural Glossy, and Tarte Lights Camera Lashes.

11. False Lashes

I'm not the greatest at putting these on but they can really polish a look. Also they can just be fun to wear and make you feel more glam.

My Picks:
NYX, Red Cherry, and Ardell

12. Glitter

Want something fun to add to a look, how about some eye glitter. You can never go wrong with glitter. I think its good for artistry makeup looks, also for festive and going out looks.

<p>My Picks:
Eye Kandy Cosmetics, TBN Eye Glitters, NYX Glitter Mania, and LA Splash</strong></span>

I hope you found this list to be helpful. </p> <p>
