Princess Blues - Eye Look of the Day

By cristalena56 · October 4, 2012

I decided to play with my new Hard Candy Feelin' Blue palette again yesterday. This is a pretty purple look. I wish the glitter I used showed up more in pics but thats ok. 

I couldnt figure out what to name this look. When i was taking pictures at one point I put on my princess crown I wore on my birthday. I then also put on my blue wig that I got for if we ever do any Liquid Ice Promotions. Our friends are distributers in Arizona for a Energy Drink from Minnesota thats made from natural ingredients. 

Recently I've seen on fellow blogger pages posts of pictures showing faces with no makeup or showing one side with makeup and one showing without. I decided to do the half makeup and half no makeup for this look. Im really scared though to post my pictures. lol I cant even go check the mail without putting some sort of face makeup on. Hopefully its not too scary..

*Hard Candy Top Ten Feelin' Blue Palette

*Shiro Cosmetics Twilight Realm

*NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk

*NYX Aqua Luxe Liquid Liner Glam Lagoon

Rock Candy Rainbow

By cristalena56 · October 2, 2012

So I decided to do a look using some of the new colors from my Hard Candy Top Ten Palette Feelin' Blue. Unfortunately all day my eyes have been watering. They were watering before I applied anything to my face this morning. I did a different look for work but it didnt come out that great lol I was inspired to do this look from a recent photo of Shrinkle the creator of Sugarpill cosmetics. I decided to recreate the look using products that I own. I need to save up some money to get the sugarpill palettes that ive been wanting for awhile. I think I might do this look for tomorrow and maybe tweek it a little bit. 

Items Used:

*Hard Candy Top Ten Feelin Blue

*BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 2nd Edition - Hot Pinks

*TBN Strawberry, Grape Soda, Dbomb Blue, Blanc, Siren, and Lemon

*Elf Studio Black Cream Liner

*Revlon Customeyes Mascara

I really need to get my brows waxed. :/ Im bad at plucking... I do like the brow wax sticker things though.

*Primer (Palladio)

*NYX Milk from lid to brow and smoothed out with fingers.

*Applied TBN Strawberry to Crease.

*Went over with some Hot Pinks from BH Cosmetics 120 Palette.

*Applied Grape Soda in lower crease.

*Drew a Cute Crease with Hard Candy Shade C.

*Applied Dbomb Blue to outer part of the cut crease and winged it down and filled it outer corner of lid.

*Applied Hard Candy Shade A to Lid.

*Applied Hard Candy Shade B to Outer half of lid.

*Applied Lemon to Lowerlashline.

*Applied Siren over it.

*Highlighted with TBN Blanc.

*Filled in brows with Grape Soda.

*Lined eyes with Elf Studio Cream Liner.

I decided to use my ELF HD Powder, yeah definitely a mistake.. Made my whole face flakey. 

Haul - Ulta/Walmart/Sallys/Big Lots

By cristalena56 · September 30, 2012

I did a little shopping the past couple days. Ulta had a sale the past week for 40% off NYX  Products. I went in with my $5 off a $15 purchase coupon. I had planned on buying the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush since I saw rave reviews for it but put it back. I plan on going back for it with my $5 off a $10 purchase coupon. When I was at Walmart I saw Hard Candy had some new products. I should have taken a picture of the display.. They had some new palettes though that reminded me of the Pop Beauty Palettes. They are only $6. 

Borrowed this pic from DizzyNicky. The Blue one (Feelin' Blue) I just had to have. There was one color I had been looking for ever since I saw the Sigma Paris Palette (Seine). The color in this palette though is more aqua then blue. I liked the colors from the pic of Naturall Gorgeous at the display but they were all gone. If I like this one I will probably pick up more. They are very inexpensive, $6 each. Thats 60 cents per shadow. I can't wait to play with this palette. 

Group Picture

I picked up some NYX Fake Lashes in Nirvana and Gold Digger. I thought I could get these for Halloween since they were only $2.69 each on sale. I figured if i mess up putting on one, I have a spare. I need to go  buy some new glue though. When i was using my lash glue a few days ago it had a weird odor. 

I picked up one of the new Glam Aqua Luxe Lipsticks in Razzle Dazzle. Also got a Matte Lipstick in Pure Red. I wanted the hot pink one but they were out. :( 

They blend in with the background. :/


No Flash

Razzle Dazzle is a Frosty Coral.

Pure Red is a nice Matte Fire Engine Red. I found that its hard to apply by itself. It goes on more smoothly when you apply a lip balm first.

Some NYX eye products. I picked up a backup of Milk. There was only 1 so it was meant to be. I've tried the other Jumbo Pencils and they go sheer and frosty besides Black Bean. I can only Recommend Milk and Black Bean when it comes to the NYX Jumbo Liners. You need to use them with a primer though. I guess I could maybe try some of the darker colors. 

This is a pretty sparkly emerald green liner. I cant wait to try this out.

Flash and No Flash. The color came out more teal in the picture but its more green. 

NYX Glitter Mania in Purple - a bright lavender irridescent purple 

applied dry with my finger.

NYX Pencil Sharpener - I have bought this before but lost it. I had bought it after Xsparkage recommended it for the NYX Jumbo Pencils. I found this is the best one that sharpens my Milk pencil. It sharpens it perfectly unlike some that wont sharpen it, product gets stuck to it, sharpens but not very well, and I have one that seems to sharpen but also starts to sharpen the shadow part itself which is weird

Now if i lose the top part i know that the NYX one says Made in Germany. So if im looking for my sharpener and I find one without this, I know its not the one im looking for.

Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Glow in the Dark Nail Polish. Picked this up for $1.99. Im hoping its better then my China Glaze Ghoulish Glow. I know last year Scrangie recommended this one over the China Glaze. 

I saw in some recent photos how bad my roots were so I went to Sallys for some hairdye. The developer was in a pink bottle for breast cancer. 

Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow - I remember reading last year  or maybe earlier this year about how this was a dupe for Urban Decay Primer Potion. I decided to try this. I had a coupon to get a hairdye free with a $10 or more purchase. So i decided to get this. Along with this and the developer, I was able to get my hairdye free. 


It was hard to get a swatch of this since its only a little lighter in color then my skintone. I found it to be thicker and creamy when swatching. Kind of reminds me of the consistency of the Hard Candy Face primer.. Kind of like a silicone based primer.. i cant wait to try this since I do like UDPP. Ive tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance a little bit and i found my shadows creasing like crazy.. I didnt get to use it much because it was in my makeup bag last year when my purse was stolen. 

I saw these cute earrings at Big Lots and had to buy then. I think daisies are cute and i love the skulls, roses, hearts, and stars. 

Thought I would show the Mood Changing Sanrio Hello Kitty Earrings my hubby bought me last weekend.

Tried capturing a colo difference. No matter what I always change them blue. The necklace they had though I could get to be pink and purple. I only got the earrings.

Im going to do a separate post for my Hard Candy Top Ten Feelin' Blue Palette. Love the colors!! :)


Thanks for looking!! :)

By cristalena56 · April 19, 2012

So i was looking at pics from the coachella event and liked the look emma watson donned during the daytime. I decided to try to recreate it. This was my first time doing this. Hopefully its ok :)

*bronzed my whole face with hard candy bronzer. When I apply bronzer to my whole face i dab my powder brush into the bronzer, tap away extra, dab it on the back of my hand as well, to give just enough to make my face glow.

*Then apply Poppy to my cheeks.

*First I applied Clinique Raspberry Glace to lips and then went over with Rimmel Siren for a glossier look and a more berry color.
