More Shiro!

I took advantage of the Shiro Cosmetics sale to pick up the last few Intertubes I wanted before they are discontinued May 31.

Onto the swatches!

I am really glad I picked these up.  They are my go-to lippies because of how easy they are to apply, and you can just throw them in your purse.

I also received The Fourth Be With You, and two samples.  They are swatched over DeLeon Primer.

And this is the Suicide Mix gloss!

If you want the Intertubes, you only have two more days to order!

A New Mascara

image

L’oreal Miss Manga mascara.  It was time for me to pick up a new mascara, and I had heard interesting things about this one.  When I opened it, I was surprised by the brush.

image

You cant tell from that photo, but let me assure you that the brush is weirdly bendy.

image

It took almost no effort to make it bend. 
I applied this like I would any mascara, using two coats on my top lashes and one coat on the bottom.

image

This mascara works really well!  I think this is a little too much for daytime looks, but plan to try using just one coat in the future.
Even after 9+ hours, this held up really well.

Highly recommend giving Miss Manga mascara a try!  You can pick it up at CVS for less than $10.

Lippies – Day 3

Today we have three lipsticks from Portland Black Lipstick Company.

image

PBLC sells a variety of lipstick colors, and is most known for the unusual colors they offer.  I don’t have any of the unusual colors, but I do have a couple gorgeous ones, and a color that just doesn’t work for me.  One note, the shipping at PBLC is high.  The lipsticks cost $12 each, and shipping for one is $4, and an additional $1 for each lipstick.   Now on to the swatches!

Lux et Voluptas
This is one of my favorite lippies.  It is a pink with a golden sheen, and I think it’s flattering on everyone.  Love it!

image

Irony
This color is described as a ‘warm metallic red’.  The color on the website is no good, but this is a really pretty red.  I use this color often.

image

image

Undead Red
This color is just too dark for me, and it leans brown on me.  It is described as ‘a dark, dark red that wants to be called ‘plum’ or something’.  I don’t think this is plum at all.

Have you tried PBLC?

May Ipsy

Ipsy has arrived for the month of May!

image

I wasn’t excited after looking at my Glam Room, but actually seeing the products changed my mind.  I am excited to try the face mask and eyeshadow, and the water spray and sunscreen will come in handy when I go to California in a couple of months.

If you haven’t signed up for Ipsy, it’s worth it for $10 per month!
