Makeup Geek Shadows - Part 1

|
By cristalena56 · April 3, 2016
As Thrift Thicke would sing on YT, "Youtube made me buy it and now i'm going to try it". In January of last year after watching a Jaclyn Hill makeup geek favorite shadows video, I  decided to buy some of these shadows. I have since made a few orders since that initial order. I think I own now 40 shadows of theirs (38 pans and 2 pigments). 
 
Makeup Geek Cosmetics is a makeup company started by Youtuber Marlena. She considers herself a makeup teacher rather then a makeup artist. I have been following her yt channel for quite a few years now. I think she was my second youtube subscription after Leesha (xsparkage). I don't know why I was so late joining the bandwagon on these shadows because they are amazing.
The shadows are pigmented, blend easily, and last all day. Plus they only cost $6 a Pan or $10 for their Foiled shadow pans. I noticed recently MAC reduced their price of their pro single refill pans to $6.00 and I think it's probably because they were losing business to this company since their shadows were $10 compared to MUG $6.00. I actually put my mug shadows in mac pro duo palettes with inserts. 
 
These are the shadows I bought recently when they were having a bundle sale. From time to time they will put bundles of 9 shadows for a certain price. They are made up from their regular, duochrome, and foiled lined shadows. This set was on sale for $25 and i also bought one extra shadow. They currently have the Spring Fever Set for $30. 
All their shadows come in these thin cardboard squares. I recently ordered some mac ones and they came in similar packaging. 
I'll start with the 2 duochromes and 2 foiled shadows. Duochromes are when you have one color but when you move it around in the light it can reflect 1 or more other colors. The foiled shadows give you that wet (foiled) look without having to wet your brush. 
Duochromes on the left and foiled on right. Took these outside with no flash.
Shade: Mai Tai
Description: Apricot Base with Orchid Reflects 
Thoughts: I think it's a dark peach color that in certain angles it looks more pink. It reminds me a little of the duochrome shadow from the morphe jaclyn hills favorite palette (ES67).  
Price: $6.00
  Next
Desscription: Buff Base with Peachy-Pink Reflects.
Thoughts: 
Price: $6.00
Foiled...
Description: Soft Pink with Coral Undertones and a Foiled Finish.
Thoughts: It looks like a  peachy-coral to me with a golden foiled finish.
Price: $9.99
and then... lol
 Name: Daydreamer
Description: Light lilac purple with cool undertones and a foiled finish
Thoughts: Light lavendar purple with a silvery foiled finish.
Price: $9.99
do be do be do...
 These shadows are from their normal line. 
 Here there are 3 mattes and 1 shimmer.
Description: Metallic Champagne 
Thoughts: Light beige with a frosted golden sheen. I mainly use this color as a inner corner highlight. This was one of the first shadows i bought. This one will be a backup. 
Price: $6.00
 I didn't swatch this one or the next one because I already own them. I'll have swatch them from my other ones and add them later...
Description: A Light Peach Beige with a Soft Matte Finish
Thoughts: A light peachy orange matte. I mainly use this as a transition shade in my crease. 
Price: $6.00
 It's a little more orange then it shows in the picture above... When I post the pictures of another haul, you will see what I am talking about.. 
 Name: Sorbet
Description: Pastel Melon Pink with a Matte Finish
Thoughts: Dusty Light Corally Pink Matte. It didn't want to swatch very well so this one I had to swatch over a primer. 
Price: $6.00
lalalala..
 Name: Bedrock
Description: Medium Gray with Strong Brown Undertones and a Matte Finish.
Thoughts: This was another one I had to apply over a primer because it was patchy. It's a brownish gray color.
Price: $6.00

 
 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Inspired Eye Look (Leonardo)

|
By cristalena56 · August 24, 2014
</p> <p>I can't help to sing the theme song everytime I see anything that is teenage mutant ninja turtles related. I decided to do a look when i went to see the new movie with my hubby opening weekend. We even got a mask because we are a AMC Stubs card member. I of course got a Leonardo one since he has been my favorite since I was a kid. I remember playing the game with my brothers and I was always leo (my older brother was donatello and my little brother was michaelangelo). Did anyone else get the VHS tapes from Burger King?? haha I am dating myself saying vhs.. :p 

Now that you are probably humming the song, how about the lyrics. :p
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Heroes in a half shell, turtle power
They're the worlds most fearsome fighting teens
[ we're really hip ] Teenage mutant ninja turtles
They're heroes in a half shell and they're green
[ hey, get a grip ] Teenage mutant ninja turtles
When the evil shredder attacks
These turtle boys don't cut him no slack
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Splinter taught them to be ninja teens
[ he's a radical rat ] Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines
[ that's a fact, Jack ] Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Raphael is K00L but rude
Michaelangelo is a party dude
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Teenage mutant ninja turtles
Heroes in a half shell, turtle power
</p> <p>

I probably could of applied this better but I had 3.5 to 4 hours of asleep since i've had trouble falling asleep lately. I even fell asleep towards the end of the movie... I'm pretty sure we are going to buy the 3d blu ray when it comes out, so i can see what i missed then. :p We took the motorcycle to the theater, and do you know how lame it is to be on that while falling asleep.. lol :p 

You can interchange the lower lashline color to be a different ninja turtle. These are my color suggestions. :)

Star Crushed Minerals Haul Swatches (Picture Heavy)

|
By cristalena56 · March 31, 2014
I've been seeing their products a lot lately throughout the beauty community. So around valentine's day they were having a 50% off sale and decided to make an order. I was hoping that I would find the neon shades that swatches had been popping up all over Facebook, but they weren't released yet(as of now they still aren't released and no idea if they will ever... I hope they do..). So i picked out 10 shade samples and a primer sample. Most indy companies send out their samples in the little baggies, but they send theirs all out in jars (BFTE doe the same). I prefer the jars out of the baggies. I find them easier to find the color im looking for verses the baggies. With the baggies, i seem to look at all of them before i find the color i am looking for.  So that's a total plus in my book.

There was a bunch of confetti stars inside the bags and envelope. 


The eye shadow samples I bought were $1.00 to $2.00 each and according to sticker on the jar they are .5 grams.


Product: Eye Shadow Primer
Website Description: This emollient rich eye shadow primer is designed to not only prep your eyes for eye shadow application but to moisturize as it does so. Neutralizes eyelid color.
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Carnauba Wax, Organic Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Grapeseed Oil, Micas
Price: $5.00 (on special right now for $2.00)

Product inside Jar, Indoor Lighting Swatch (Over Primer), and Outdoor Lighting Swatch (Over Primer)

INGREDIENTS: titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate, serecite mica, micas,oxides,chromium, tin oxide


Product: Neptune Star
Website Description: Green-Blue shimmer color.
(It's more on the green side then green blue. Shamrock Green with green sparkles.)

Website Description: This is matte purple color with pink undertones. Semi opaque.
(the purple shade of orchids with pink sparkles)

Product: Black Sapphire

I thought these were very pigmented and since I was given a coupon for 65% off, I think i'm going to purchase some more. I've yet to play with these just yet though. I have some ideas for them though. I've only had them about a week so far. :) I noticed some of these can stain like Black Sapphire and Neptune Star. I also think Orchid could be a little more pigmented. I think it might be because its a matte esque shade and thats why it was harder to swatch then the others. You can make a purchase at their etsy shop Star Crushed Minerals. They are still having their spring sale, so check them out. :)

Darling Girl Cosmetics 1st Order - Swatches and Review

|
By cristalena56 · September 3, 2013
</p>

<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 target="_blank" href="http://media4.onsugar.com/files/2013/09/03/178/n/11329888/389c2e3f2be7c8f1_darlinggirlswatch.jpg">

</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.
</span></strong>
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.

Man of Steel EOTD

|
By cristalena56 · May 28, 2013
</p>

This past weekend was the Annual Phoenix Comicon indowntown phoenix at the convention center. My hubbyand I go every year. We are hoping to one of these days goto the San Diego one. (This one is super hard to get tickets for!!)

I decided for the first day I would wear a Superman look and wear my superman shirt complete with cape. lol I got it for like $8.00 last year at wal-mart of all places. I thought it would be good since the new Superman movie is coming out next week. The sexy Henry Cavill (Count of Monte Cristo, Tudors, Immortals, etc...) is the new "Man of Steel". <3 Haha This makes me think way back to the MSN Chat days and he was actually a contact on my MSN Messenger. He had added me but I could never get up the guts to actually message him. The only thing he had been in at the time was a couple british stuff and the Count of Monte Cristo. I think I made one of his first fan pages. lol 

A couple weeks ago BFTE came out with a new pro color, Shine Bright. It was the color of the week 3 weeks ago and i've yet to see it on the website in the pro colors section. Its a bright sunny yellow with silver shimmer. I thought it would be perfect to use for my superman look. The blue I used didnt show up well in the pictures. Also I should have added a blue to my waterline to complete the look. (I would have used either my Cargo Swimmable Blue or UD Radium) 

Items Used:
*Urban Decay Primer Potion Eden
*NYX Yellow Pencil Liner
*BFTE Shine Bright
*BFTE Electric
*BFTE Meteor Shower
*BFTE Addicted
*BFTE Crystal
*Eye Kandy Cosmetics Liquid Sugar
*Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Confetti Glitter
*Elf Black Cream Liner

<a target="_blank" href="http://media3.onsugar.com/files/2013/05/28/297/n/11329888/c062fb8bce02b4ba_bftesupermanmu.jpg">Shine Bright, Addicted, Electric, Meteor Shower, Crystal

</a>Shine Bright, Addicted, Electric, Meteor Shower, Crystal

<p>
</p> <p>*Primer (UDPP Eden)
*Apply Cut Crease with Blue Shadow (BFTE Electric)
*Blend with Sparkly Grayish Black Shadow (BFTE Meteor Shower)
*Fill in lid with Yellow Base. (NYX Yellow Pencil Liner)
*Apply Yellow Shadow to Lid. (BFTE Shine Bright)
*Apply Red Shadow to Lower Lashline. (BFTE Addicted)
*Using a Glitter Adhesive (Eye Kandy Cosmetics Liquid Sugar) Apply a line of sparkly glitter (Fantasy Makers Confetti) where the yellow and blue meet. Starting 2/3 of the way in and making it to the outer corner. Fill in the corner with a little more glitter.
*Highlighted with Shiny White Shadow. (BFTE Crystal)
*Apply Black liner. (ELF Black Cream Liner)
*2 Coats of Mascara (Maybelline Falsies)
*You could finish the look applying a Blue Liner to the waterline and using false lashes.</p>

<a target="_blank" href="http://www.bftecosmetics.com/Limited_c_60.html">

</a>You can find all the colors I used at the BFTE Cosmetics Website. Samples are $2.00 and Full Size are $6.00. Its the same price whether its a pro color or not. A good way to try out their shadows is by ordering the Color of the Week Special. (Full Size COTW and 3 Samples of your Choice)

Notes: I didnt realize Leesha (XSPARKAGE) was at the comicon all weekend. I think I saw her once because I remember thinking to myself, that girl looks like Leesha. I would have totally gotten a pic with her, if I had seen her and realized it was her. She's the reason i'm into all these bright colors and just makeup in general.

</a>Product: Urban Decay Moondust Shadow in Stargazer
Description: You’ve never seen a sparkly shadow this sophisticated. Moondust is dazzlingly sparkly but with a super refined, incredibly sophisticated feel (and not a single speck of chunky glitter). Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle collide with intense, dreamy hues and lush, 3-D metallics—for an effect that’s out of this world.
New technology gives Moondust an amazing effect not found in traditional pressed-powder shadows. It feels like a cream but goes on like a powder to create a smooth, brilliantly reflective look. The result? Sexy, twinkling sparkle with a ton of depth and movement. (And a LOT of questions about what you’re wearing!)

Thoughts on Bag: I loved this month's bag. Love my nail polish, wearing it now. Love the lip gloss and cant wait to use my Moondust shadow. I would have preferred the lightest color of the concealers, but thats ok.
