Standard

Hi girls!

Gonna be doing a long post and it’s the long awaited Mac Archie’s Girls Collection. Here i will not be doing swatches because if I do, it will be a very very verrrryyy long post so I’ll be doing a separate one later on. But for those of you who are interested in what I got from this collection, then keep on reading 🙂

MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

As you know, the collection itself is huge. They have this collection separated consisting of Betty’s and Veronica’s.

Betty’s collections are more on the neutral “girl next door” colors while Veronica’s are more of the sultry colors. I did not get all, though God knows how much I wanted to but these things are not cheap! Sigh. So I got a few things which I thought I needed and I could not live with. So let’s get started!!

They have two eye shadow palettes, I obviously got my hands on both! They are:

1. Betty’s – Caramel Sundae

2. Veronica’s – Spoiled Rich

Below is what the packaging looks like for both palettes. If you’re familiar with the Wonder Woman or the Hello Kitty eyeshadow palettes that MAC released a while back, this is similar except of the theme but still the same metal compact casings which I adore!

The had so many shades of lipsticks for both Veronica and Betty, but I only got three (2 from Veronica’s and 1 from Betty’s). I got none of the lip glosses cause I rarely use lip glosses nowadays.

15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection by Urban Decay

Standard

Hi yall!

Tonight I’ll be presenting Urban Decay’s 15 Anniversary Eyeshadow palette.

Sorry it took me this long to post again. It’s just that this month has been a very hectic month for me. Now enough about that. Honestly, I have not tried using this palette because… I think this palette is precious. It’s too pretty to look at that I don’t even want to use it, but then again I will, very soon I hope. I just loooveeee the colors they have in this palette and I’ve already thought of the different looks I can create using this palette.

Now what I can provide you today are the swatches of this palette. Here is how the colors look like on the palette.

First column on the left:

L to R: MIDNIGHT RODEO, MIDNIGHT 15, VANILLA, FLOW, CHASE

To me, this column has more of the neutral colors.

MIDNIGHT RODEO: This is more of a taupe color that has silver chunky glitters.

MIDNIGHT 15: This is more of a champagne color that has a greyish undertone to it.

VANILLA: This is a yellowish gold color.

FLOW: This is a peach color with a golden sheen to it.

CHASE: This is a soft bronzey color

The middle column:

From L To R: TAINTED, JUNKSHOW OMEN, EVIDENCE, DEEP END

This has to be my favorite column!

TAINTED: This color was a lil disappointing. It looks so nice on the pan but turns out it’s on the sheer side. This is a light lavender color.

JUNKSHOW: Fabulous! A hot pink with a purple sheen to it!

OMEN: This is a purple mixed with a bluish duo chrome.

EVIDENCE: This is a dark navy blue color.

DEEP END: Also a favorite! A pretty green, teal color.

The last column:

From L to R: DEEPER, M.I.A., ACE, BLACKOUT, HALF TRUTH

DEEPER: This is a bronze color with a golden sheen.

M.I.A. : A typical brown color that we all have seen before.

ACE: This is more of a dark gun metal color.

BLACKOUT: A matte black.

HALF TRUTH: This is a dark purple color with a sheen to it.

As you all know, Urban Decay makes quality eye shadows. All of these shadows are soft and mostly, pigmented. I cannot wait to try them out! Oh and the packaging is bomb! The downside is that it easily picks up finger prints. Blergh. Anyways, overall, a good buy. This might be a good addition to you make up collection or if you’re just starting with make up, this palette has good combination of neutrals and bright colors!

Until then, hope this was helpful girls!

Elianto Pearl Shine Shadows

Standard

Hi my lovelies!

Are you all familiar with Elianto? Honestly, I’ve never heard of Elianto until I saw their colorful booth in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. I saw they had a whole wide range of colors for lipsticks, eye shadows, eyeliners, blushes and what not. Saw their price and I was like, no way these things are good cause they’re TOO cheap! So I swatched a few of their shadows and was amazed with the pigmentation! And I hurried to the counter to get myself one of the shopping basket and picked a whole lot of colors.

Elianto has so many different kinds of eye shadows. I believe that the one I’ll be talking about is from their studio line. I got a few from their “Vibrant Shadow”, “Pearl Shine Shadow” and another kind that was discontinued (and I cant search it off from the internet cause it’s not in the website too!) which I forgot what it was, so sorry about that.

Let’s get on with the post.


This is how the palette looks like. This holds 10 pans of eye shadows. This is sold separately. If I’m not mistaken, it was around RM16 = ± BND 8. That’s quite reasonable right?

Now the downside of this palette is that the dividers (is that what you call it?), is not made of plastic. It’s made of a spongy type material unlike the MAC palettes or Coastal Scents palette. But hey, it’s $8 so we really can’t complain that much.

Now these colors I picked out. They’ve got over 20 shades from the Pearl Shine Shadows. They were RM8 (BND 4) each.

Swatches:

PALE YELLOW & LIGHT SALMON

COPPER BROWN & LAVENDER BLUE

SHELL PINK & ROSY PINK

SHELL PINK & ROSY PINK (Nice colors for blush too!)

SPRING TURQUOISE & AQUAMARINE

ELIANTO claims that their Pearl Shine Shadow:

” A pan of silky soft-textured powder that glides easily on eyes. Enriched with vitamin E which is anti-free radicals, this shimmering eye shadow keeps your eyes nourished.”

I totally agree! The shadows are silky and it does glide smoothly on the lids. It stays on better with a base/primer underneath though. And I can say that the shadows blend easily.

Great eye shadows for a great price! You cannot pass this up. So if you do get a chance to go to Elianto, check out their eye shadows!

That is all, as always, hope this was helpful. Now stay tuned for the upcoming post 🙂

Xx,
