The MAKEUP SHOW NYC HAUL, PT 2 - DANESSA MYRICKS, SMASHBOX, MAC, NYX AND MEETING BOBBI BROWN

I've posted my second video detailing events and hauling from The Makeup Show NYC.  It was such an exciting event!!!  If you haven't heard my bathroom story with Bobbi Brown, you'll find it in this video.  I've broken my hauls into several videos to keep them shorter for you.  I have a couple of giveaways running, with more to come, so be sure to search for those as well.

I chose the thumbnail with Jordan Liberty, who I stalked thru Press Night.  Notice I hadn't finished my makeup because I had misplaced my blush and spent a lot of time searching for it.  Oh well, it was fun anyway!!!!

Halloween Week Makeup Look Extragavanza

In the week leading up to and including Halloween, I was challenged to create some unique makeup looks.  My initial inspiration came from a package I received via Buxom Cosmetics.  I shared all the looks on Instagram but I thought I'd bring to you all the fun that I had.  I haven't done anything Halloween-ish beside handing out candy since I was 14.  This all really was fun.

My first look was a 2017 take on 80's Madonna in the Like A Virgin video.  I may have sang and danced my way through Snapchat and IG stories that night, rumor has it...oh wait, that's an Adele song!


I couldn't find a picture that wasn't all fuzzy from the video but below is from the same time frame:

The third look was something I wanted to do with my dog.  She's a rap star, you know, right?  She does benefit concerts and stuff....I had a full scenario for her return to the stage after a leg injury but she just wasn't having it.   In my imagination, we were dressed as her former sister in a Mommy and Me contest.



She wouldn't play, so I filmed my October Ipsy and Sephora Play unboxings.  You can see that here:

I thought it would be so funny to dress up like another youtuber.  I picked Desi Perkins.  Here is my inspirational picture from Desi's Instagram:


And here I am being an older Desi.  I'm probably the only one who thought that was funny.

If you know me, you know I am glued to baseball playoffs and the World Series every year, and even more so when my team is playing!  Clayton Kershaw, the Dodger Ace, was due to pitch on Game 5 and I was ready!!!  Here I am as Kershaw's Killer Slider.

Polarbelle Halloween

Products:
White Grease Paint . @makeuprevolution Ghost Sculpt powder
@nyxcosmetics Milk Jumbo eye pencil
@collab lash primer from @sallybeauty . @katvondbeauty Hemingway Ink liner . @nyxcosmetics Vivid Liquid liner in the red color...which exploded but it worked out ok. . Let's go Dodgers!!!

And last but not least, I dressed up as a Polarbelle for Halloween.  When I meet a new person and they learn my online name, they always ask what a Polarbelle is.  I'm from Alaska, so I'm not a Southern Belle, right?  I am an Arctic Princess Warrier, a Polarbelle.  My fantasy interpretation of that is below.   I did film a video so expect to see the Polarbelle in action soon, although it all made my teeth look really yellow, so maybe that's too spooky of a video?


I had a lot of fun just throwing caution to the wind and playing pretend all week for the first time in 100 years.  Can you believe today is November already?!?  I won't dress as a turkey because I wear that costume all year, haha.  Did you do anything fun or get any cool candy this season?

Four Hottest Eyeshadow Palettes for Fall 2017 - Huda, Kat Von D, Nyx, Too Faced


This week on my youtube channel, I tackled four of the hottest most hyped eyeshadow palettes that have come out this fall.  I know you've all heard about the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette, and perhaps you've heard of the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner palette as well.  I don't think there's a corner of the makeup world that isn't curious about the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette, and I know the NYX Professional Makeup Sugar High caused quite a stir when we first spied it at Cosmoprof North America this year.  I've chosen to swatch and review these highly hyped eyeshadow palettes and tell you my thoughts, from my point of view and my skintone, and hopefully help you to decide for yourself if they will work for you.


**Find the first three here:  http://go.magik.ly/ml/6zp8/
The Nyx Sugar High can be found here:  http://go.magik.ly/ml/6zpa/

I'm really curious to hear your thoughts as well.  Have you purchased any?  Have you seen or swatched them in the store?  What are you most looking forward to seeing this fall?

Luv Out Loud With NYX Professional Cosmetics Matte Lipstick! Ulta Exclusive



Cruelty-free brand NYX Professional Makeup, (known as NYX Cosmetics until now), has released six creamy matte liquid lipsticks in the Luv Out Loud collection,  The names are inspiring, motivating and capture a feel that NYX embodies.  Each liquid lipstick is just $6.99 and available exclusively at Ulta Beauty.  I filmed a video with swatches, describing the colors and wear and it is linked below.  It's about 3 minutes, so it's a quickie, and I've snagged swatch pictures off of it to share with you here.

The wear of the collection is really nice and long lasting.  I would guess the reason they call them creamy matte is because they have the comfort of a cream with the wear of a matte.  You can wear them through eating and drinking with minimal damage unless you eat something oily, as with any longwear.  I don't experience the flaking or pilling while they wear that I do with some brands.  There is no transfer with the Luv Out Loud liquid lipsticks and they do dry completely down.  The applicator is just perfect because you can do your lips, including touching up the edges and fussing over it all, with just one dip into the tube.  There's just no need to double dip.  My only question is that if NYX can do such a terrific formula and retail for only $6.99, why aren't other brands?

If it looks like I was talking in the swatches, umm, yeah, video so yeah I was.  :)

NYX sent the products free of charge for me to enjoy as well as the tshirt I was wearing.  You can probably tell I was feeling all kinds of somethin' somethin' wearing them and the shirt.  My tshirt says Confident, which is the first color of the set and it is a peachy nude matte.  I normally would wear a light color like this with a liner but for the purposes of showing the actual color, I wore all the shades without.  I wear colors like Confident practically on the daily.

Confident, matte

Going from lighter to darker, the second color would be Brilliant.  This is the kind of color that I wear often, a nice mauvey rose.  I think the whole collection is perfect to roll into fall and through the winter.  My eyes look a little crazy in the pictures, but again, I was talking to the camera and I am very facially expressive.

matte, Brilliant

Extraordinary is a violet toned fuchsia.  It is my perfect fuchsia color and one of my favorite lip colors to wear after nude tones like Confident and Brilliant.  It goes so well with the Lorac Unzipped Desert Sunset palette that I was wearing on the eyes and with my hair.  Win, win!

matte, Extraordinary

The fourth shade is called Fearless and I think you must be when wearing this color.  It is a dusty lavender.  I was smiling because I couldn't believe that these apply so perfectly and on camera even!!

matte, Fearless

Passionate had me feeling it!!  The tube looked a bit different than the color did when I applied it so it was like my eyes were going to bug out because I love it so much.  It is a gorgeous deep purpley wine.

matte, Passionate

Getting ramped up with attitude!

matte, Passionate

And totally feeling this color, which I misjudged by the tube.

matte, Passionate

And the sixth color is Brave, a bold deep purple.

matte, Brave

Yassss, girl!  I love it!

matte, Brave


swatches

This is a fun very wearable collection of matte liquid lipsticks.  I'm enjoying them and I even surprised myself with how much I love the deep colors.  They're like the perfect tones for me.  You can follow NYX Professional Cosmetics on youtube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.

If you'd like to hear just a few more thoughts and see the products in action, please check out my video, and I'd love if you subscribed and/or thumbs up.


Do you see anything you think you might like?  Are you ready to jump into fall and fall colors?  Did you know NYX recently updated the brand name?
