EauMG’s Weekly Blog Roundup II

Patricia Ellis and George Brent

December 5th to 12th:

It’s been another busy week as many people countdown to Christmas. If you’re ordering on-line the clock is a ticking if you want it before Christmas. Work is insane right now and I’m trying to tie up some loose ends before vacation. And I have to retake the GRE because mine expired. (This is super stressful. It’s been years since I’ve been in school). This week I received my sample order from High Voltage Cosmetics, I’ll let you know… Continue reading | 8 Comments

More of the 1920’s: Get the Makeup Look of Barbara Lamarr

Barbara LaMarr’s look is quite the Betty Boop look, huh? Here’s my attempt to recreate this look for the modern day. I’m not very happy with my final outcome. I could not get the right lighting!  For some reason I kept coming out excessively pink. Sunburn from the rare winter sunshine in Western Washington? I think not.

FACE: First, I apply foundation. I use Shisiedo Stick Foundation in 040. I blend with fingertips. Apply concealer where needed. I applied MAC Studio Finish Concealer under… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Alima Pure Minerals Eyeshadow Review – Light Neutrals

Here are more of the samples that I purchased of Alima Pure Minerals eye products after reading reviews and getting recommendations from Lovely Android and Scenthive.

Weekly Cheap Secret:

Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette contains 6 powder eyeshadows. Each palette contains 3 matte eyeshadows and 3 shimmer eyeshadows. There are 4 palettes in all (each named after a deadly sin). I am swatching and reviewing the palettes, Pride and Lust.

Limited Edition Bobbi Brown Brights Eye Palette Review

I am so happy that I saw this before I bought it. It is such a rip! It retails for $70 which isn’t bad for 35 bright matte eyeshadows by Bobbi Brown. Bobbi Brown eyeshadows come in a great formula, pack pigment, and blend easily. I love them. When I saw this I was shocked! Each “pan” is so extremely tiny and it seems you would only get a few wears out of each color. Yes, you get a variety but you do not get much of it. This is not a palette… Continue reading
