Eyeshadow: glittery black liner

I have a quick and easy look for you guys today. I got a new Avon eyeliner and was eager to try it out. I really like it! I'll definitely be using it a lot when I'm not in the mood for my usual liquid liner. I kept the eyeshadow fairly neutral so it wouldn't detract from the liner.

Eyeshadow: red & multi-coloured sparkle

Hey guys. I forgot how much I loved wearing red eyeshadow that I decided to do it again today! I teamed it with a silvery colour this time, which also has heaps of pretty multi-coloured sparkles in it. This is quite similar to a look I did ages ago here, but a little more subtle.

Eyeshadow: neutral with glitter liner

Hi guys. I have a very simple look today. I really wanted to try out my new Biker Chic eyeshadow from Fyrinnae, but I wasn't in the mood for a really dark, intense look. In the end, I decided to wear it as a liner with some neutral eyeshadows, which worked out really well. So here are the goodies I used.

Eyeshadow: orange & red with Sugarpill

I have a fun, bright look for you guys today. As many of you will know, a few weeks ago Sugarpill (www.sugarpillshop.com) had a sale on their web site, offering discounts on certain items as well as the opportunity to purchase some limited edition expo-only items. Like the Sugarpill obssessive that I am, I got up at 4am Australia time to attempt to get these lovely eyeshadows. I honestly never thought I'd get my hands on these goodies, but here they are!

Eyeshadow: shades of green

I have a dark look for you guys today. It's using two of my new green Fyrinnae eyeshadows. It's another darker look and you all know how much I love my greens! So because I haven't taken photos of the eyeshadows in their jars, here they are swatched on my hand.

Eyeshadow: copper & navy

Another look for you guys today. This time I'm giving my Sparkle 2 palette from Sleek a go. This is a gorgeous palette and one I've neglected for a while. So here's a little sparkle loving. This time I went for the coppery colours and the navy; since I use the green and burgundy the most, I wanted to try different colours for a change. I like the end result.

Nails: recent Sephora, A England & piCture pOlish manis

I've been a little slack with the nail polish posts of late, so here's a combined one with the last three manis I wore. The Sephora nail polish is one I picked up in Singapore, while the piCture pOlish and A England pretties are recent deliveries. The piCture pOlish nail colour was actually a freebie: they had a daily deal where I could get one free if I bought three polishes, which I did. Can't wait to try those out either. I'm particularly excited about the A England polish, since we've finally got an Australian distributor for them in the form of Femme Fatale Cosmetics. Woohoo!

First up is the Sephora nail polish (sadly, I think this has now been discontinued, but correct me if I'm wrong). It's a duochrome polish that looks steel blue with blue and gold microshimmer straight on, but on an angle reveals its greyish purple side with magenta shimmer. This was pretty easy to apply, considering the mini size of the bottle, and that was due to the nice, wide brush. Two coats was all I needed for even coverage.

Eyeshadow: pinky purple sparkle

Not only do I have colour today, but I have glittery sparkle too! More new goodies from Singapore in this look. I didn't buy all that much, but they've all been getting quite a flogging. It's still not overly bright or out there and yes, I used my damn Too Faced Naked Eye palette again. Can you blame me? This thing is so versatile. I've also got one of my sparkly new Bobbi Brown eyeshadows. So lovely.
