High Voltage Cosmetics Eyeshadow Review & Swatches – Romantic Shimmer Shades

Recently I ordered a few High Voltage Cosmetics Eyeshadow samples. I can not resist a BOGO! Here I am reviewing and swatching 4 Shimmery Eyeshadows in what I’m calling “romantic shimmer” shades. These colors are soft and pretty. Of course, they can be paired with bold colors for an edgier look,  but I wanted to put these all together because they are just pretty, so romantic and candlelit to me.

Here are my reviews and color swatches of Everyday Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow in various shades of pink, plum, and purple.

More 1980’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Joan Jett

Does anything make you cringe more than the thought of 80’s makeup? Yes, and that’s most likely big 80’s hair! So, I’ve tried to copy this Joan Jett makeup look. I’m not “going there” with the hair! (I’m already embarrassed as is!) I’m going to see if one can rock an 80’s rock’n look that Joan is sporting here. If not, it makes a cool Halloween look 🙂 I feel the answer is “not” and here’s an 80’s Joan Jett look for Halloween. Here’s what I used to achieve this Joan Jett look:

Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner in Endless Review

 

Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner is a long-wearing liquid eyeliner that comes in 5 shades. Milani claims that this liquid liner is semi-permanent (lasting up to 24 hours of wear), waterproof, and smudge and smear proof. Milani’s claims are true. I am reviewing the purple shade above, Endless.

The Formula & Wear: The formula is a thicker liquid in comparison to other liquid liners that I have used in the past (such as Lancôme Artliner or Almay Liquid Eyeliner). This isn’t a bad thing; I didn’t find it difficult to work with. I  find this thicker formula… Continue reading | 10 Comments
