Make Up For Ever NEW Ink Liner & Gaphic Liner

Hello loves!!!! Hope you all had an incredible weekend! I went to the makeup show Orlando last weekend and I picked up some goodies!
 
 
I wanted to tell you about this purchase first. Now, these are not for sale yet. They will be releasing them on December 26th, and they are amazing!
 
 
First I will show you the Ink Liner. It is a liquid liner, but it is the richest black of any liner I have ever tried... It isn't waterproof, however the staying power is great. I put this on around 7 p.m. and when I woke up the next morning it was still fresh.  As you can see I was able to get an awesome winged out look with it...
 




Next up is the Graphic Liner. Make Up For Ever describes it as an ultra fine, carbon black precision pen. I am very happy with the how black both of these liners are. This one isn't waterproof either, but it did take quite a bit of scrubbing to remove it from my hand. I have been using Kat Von D's ink liner lately and this remind me of that. I think the staying power of the MUFE is slightly better.
It looks like this will be priced at $24.00
 
 This was one of the looks I created with the graphic liner. With the sharp tip I was able to create very clean lines. I used it to outline the shape and the upper lash line.
 

 
I also picked up an Artist Liner. The Artist Liners are available now at Sephora and they are $19.00.
I choose the D90 color which is a beautiful iridescent purple. At the Makeup show they did a look with this color, but they used it as a lip liner and they filled in the whole lip. It was amazing!

 
This was the look I created. For this look I used the D90 to outline the shape and then fill in a little bit. I also used it on my waterlines and bottom lash line.




 
Hope you enjoyed this post. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

So I have been working with Amanda Star Photography for a while now ( if your in FL check her out she's AMAZING ) ... Anyway the last time we worked together she told me about and let me try her Younique fiber lashes. Now most of you know by now for me, lashes are EVERYTHING.... I just wasn't blessed with a lot of them, o well that's why they make falsies right?!?! As much as I love my MAC # 7's and I do LOVE them, I get really tired of the after effects. I feel like I'm picking off glue for days... WOW, I'm getting way off topic! Ok... So the younique lashes, well why don't I just show you! This is one eye with them and one without...
 
 
 
 
INCREDIBLE RIGHT?!?!?
 
You use your regular mascara and then you add the gel after that you apply the fibers and then you seal it with the gel. You can continue to do this until you reach your desired look. It honestly sounds more complicated then it is, it's very quick. What I love about it is it's not at all sticky! I have tried other brands that claim to do this sort of thing and I can hardly open up my eyes they are so sticky. Honestly, these give you the look of false lashes and no messy glue for days.
 
I only have a few complaints...  I have a bit of fiber fallout on my cheeks after applying. For me this is a very small price to pay. The other is if you are applying to heavy handed they can clump up on you. Honestly though what mascara doesn't?!?! I do love the packaging!


 
 
 
I paid $29.00 for these and I'm defiantly going to get my moneys   
worth, for the simple fact that I can cut back on my false lash buying tendencies.

This is where I ordered mine from

MAC a novel romance collection

I know I'm late to the party for this one, but I figured I'd share my thoughts and maybe someone will be web surfing for some of these swatches...
 
 
 
 
 
I picked up a little bit of this collection, here is my take on them....
 
MAC An Amorous Adventure Eyeshadow Quad
 



 
 
 
 
Can I just say AMAZING!!! LOVE IT!
Two of the four shades are part of the permanent range, and one is a repromote.
 
 
Sable is a medium brown with orange undertones and a frosty finish. It had incredible color payoff, and the texture was so buttery smooth.
 
Sex & the Oyster is a seafoam green with a frosty finish. This is the repromote. I cant say enough about this color I love it! I put it on and instantly I feel pretty. It has a thinner texture so the color payoff was semi-opaque. It was however, very buildable on the lid.
 
 
 
Brawn is a medium/dark taupe color with warm undertones and a sheen to it. It had amazing pigmentation, and the texture was like butta very easy to blend.
 
 
Black Tied is a black with silver sparkles over a matte finish. I have this color in my 15 pan palette from the permanent range already, but the formula of this one seems better. It was ridiculously  pigmented and very silky smooth.
 
 
Fluidline Eye Pencil
 
 


 
Black Brilliance is a dark black liner. It was so creamy, it makes tight lining a breeze. My new favorite black liner, well for today anyway!
 
Evil Twin it's a bluish purple liner. It is so very pretty and I love how silky these liners are.
 
Electric Cool Eye Shadows
 
 
 





 
I bought three of these. I wanted to see how the texture was, and if I would even like them. I am glad I only bought the three because they are not my favorite. The colors are so rich and so pigmented I wanted to love these I really did! They just did not wear well on me. Even when using the paint pot they still creased like crazy.
 
Highly Charged is a beautiful deep frosty purple color, really they pigmentation is like no other.
 
Switch to Blue is a beautiful jeweled cobalt blue, just a very rich amazing color.
 
Coil is a beautiful copper color out of the three that I bought this one wore the best on me.
 
 
      now for the lippies!!!
 

 
Lingering Kiss is a deep reddish burgundy with a shine. It didn't seem matte to me, and the consistency made it hard to get a perfectly even color.
 
 


 
 
Hearts Aflame is a medium red with brown undertones and a satin sheen finish. It had beautiful pigmentation. I really love this color.
 
 
The mascara that they choose for this collection is the haute & naughty too black lash this is my personal favorite MAC mascara. It makes my lashes so full and plump, and that is no easy job when you have itty bitty baby lashes like me. It's always nice having an alternative to wearing falsies all the time.
 



 
 
 
So what do you think? Did you pick up any items from this collection? Leave me some feedback.
 
-XOXO
