Rouge Underground Make-Up Sealant

image

I received this Make-Up Sealant in an Ipsy bag, but you can purchase a full-size here for $12.99.  It looks like it is also available at Target.

I gave this product a go over the last few weeks, and I like the way it works.  Here is my before:

And after a long, 11 hour day:

This is with no touch-ups of anything.  You can tell by my brows that the sealant really held the makeup in place.  If I had brought powder with me, my face would have looked perfect all day.  I think this product is great for the price point, and I will likely pick this up for an upcoming trip!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

I purchased 2 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams at Ulta a few weeks ago because they were on sale and I was dying to try Copenhagen!  I grabbed Copenhagen and Ibiza.

All of these are photos of Copenhagen.  It is much deeper than it photographs, and is a burgundy color.  I love it!  Your lips definitely need to be scrubbed and moisturized for these creams!

Ibiza:

Ibiza is too orange for me, but it’s a pretty color!
I’m glad I picked these up, and I know Copenhagen is going to get a ton of use this autumn and winter!

Litany Things Jewelry

I loooooove shopping indie.  You would never have guessed, huh?  I recently made a couple purchases from a new jewelry shop on etsy called Litany Things.  I love Halloween, and it’s even better to find pieces that I can incorporate into my wardrobe year-round.  The other thing I love is that you can customize the length of the necklaces!  I tend to like my necklaces a little longer, so that’s perfect for me.

The description for this necklace from the shop: Halloween is coming! The Nocturnal earrings and necklace are the first of my Halloween designs. These designs are going to be something a bit different. Much simpler than what I normally do, but I’m absolutely in love with them, and I hope you will be too!
This listing is for one Nocturnal necklace, comprised of two opaque dark purple bicones, four hematite star beads, and one pewter bat charm, attached to a customizable length of silver-finished chain. If a chain length is not specified, my default necklace length is approximately 50cm. 
The bat charm on this necklace is approximately 22mm long.

I requested a length of 22″, and it is perfect!  Here are some pics from the day I received the necklace:

And from another day (I hate my hair in this photo):

And today I received my 2nd order!  I am participating in a Halloween swap with some online friends, and I ordered a necklace for my swap partner.  I couldnt resist ordering one for myself as well!  I cant share a photo of the gift, but I included it in the photo so you can see how things are packaged.

I love the detail on this skull!  I requested a length of 24″ on this one so that I can layer it with other necklaces.  I plan to wear this tomorrow, and I am sure you will see it in upcoming photos.

Esoteric Aesthetic is a new indie makeup company.  I purchased 4 full-sizes and 7 samples, and received 2 samples for free and some candy.  I’m really excited to share these swatches with you, so let’s start with the full-sizes.

I definitely need full-sizes of Yesod, Maiden and Hedgeriding.  All of the colors applied smoothly and were easy to work with.  Full-sizes cost $5 and samples are $1.  I love trying new companies, and it is even better when they turn out great!  I highly recommend trying out Esoteric Aesthetic.
