Recent Makeup Looks 3/1/2015

So clearly I’ve been slacking on keeping up with my 100 days of makeup posts! I’ve actually been slacking a little with doing makeup every single day but shhh! We don’t have to talk about that part. As as it turns out, it’s really hard to do something every single day but I want to kick myself in the butt and get back to the program! My husband started a new job recently which means we’ve been getting up much earlier which means I should have more hours in the day to beat this face from now on! 😛

Anyway, here is one big, gigantic post full of all of the makeup looks I’ve done since my last 100 days of makeup post!

Day 8

Using Sugarpill Poison Plum, Melt Cosmetic’s Dark Matter and the Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette for this eye look! The rhinestones are just regular ole’ craft store gems glued on with eyelash glue. My lips are MAC lipliner in Stone topped with Sigma Beauty Lip Vex in All Heart, which is such a gorgeous chocolately color! Lashes are Red Cherry 74’s. I felt like I was ready for a performance with Cirque du Soleil! 😛

Day 9

Went for a pretty casual eye using Makeup Geek’s Vanilla Bean, Peach Smoothie, Frappe and Cocoa Bear + Urban Decay’s X and Red Cherry 83 lashes but I couldn’t resist using NYX’s High Voltage in Dirty Talk on my lips! Such an insanely gorgeous shade of brown.

Day 10

Can you guess who got a big package of Glitter Injections in the mail? This girl! First instinct was to top Limecrime’s Chinchilla lipstick with this gorgeous glitter.

Day 11

A pretty pinky look in anticipation of Valentine’s day! Used a concoction of shadows from Makeup Geek, Sugarpill, Urban Decay and Too Faced plus more glitter from Glitter Injections! Lashes again are Red Cherry 83’s.

Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette Review and Swatches

Words cannot describe my love for the Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette ($37.99). While this beautiful selection of shades look gorgeous on nearly everyone, I especially love the way the warmth of this palette makes blue eyes pop! I’ve had my eye on this beauty for a while so I was really excited to get a chance to get my paws on it.

Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette

OVERALL REVIEW: 9

Packaging: Sturdy, functional and practical. These pans can easily be removed and replaced with different pans which is wildly convenient. 10/10

Longevity: Paired with my usual primer, these eyeshadows still looked great at the end of the day. 9/10

Application: In general, this palette applied like a dream but I found Bada-Bing to be hard to blend. 7/10

Texture: Most of these shades are insanely smooth but Bada-Bing was definitely on the stiffer side. 9/10

Makeup Geek is quickly becoming one of my favorite makeup brands. I love that they make affordable yet high quality products that are easily customizable to suit your own personal preferences.

The Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette is no exception here. One of the things that I adore about this palette is the packaging. It’s sturdy cardboard with a mirror that’s actually large enough to see what you’re doing and be useful. All of the pans in this palette are magnetic and easily removable so if you run out of one of these shades or simply want to switch some of these shades out with different eyeshadow pans for travel or whatever other reason, it’s easy breezy to do so. This isn’t something that you often see in pre-assembled eyeshadow palettes so I think it’s nice how buyer friendly this is.
