Style Black Baby!9:51 AM
Woot! Woot!! I managed to get my hands on some of the items from the Style Black Collection that I wanted. Here's what I picked up:
Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, Young Punk Eyeshadow, & a sample of the Volcanic Ash Mask.
WOW!! I thought I would like the Exfoliator..I didn't think I would fall head over heels in love on my 1st try!!!! I love this!! I felt like it had the perfection amount of 'roughness' to it without irritating my face. My face was glowing after I used it last nigh, in fact it's STILL glowing. I personally think this may be a bit harsh for someone with really dry skin.
swatched dry, swatched wet with Fix+
I was really intrigued by the grease stick from this collection, but when I was playing with it I couldn't help think how it's just a more moist version of a NYX pencil so I didn't buy it. As soon as I got home I tried using my NYX pencils as bases & these were the results.
Middle Row: Left to Right: Young Punk - NYX Yogurt as base, NYX Slate as base, NYX Dark Brown as base, NYX Milk as base, NYX French Fries as base.
Bottom Row: Urban Decay Zero used as a base.
This morning I decided to play with the Young Punk shadow to see if I could use it as a wearable daytime look. Then I decided who cares if it's a daytime look..?? I love how vibrant this could be so that's how I'm gonna wear it!!
-Maybelline 24 Hour SuperStay Foundation as a spot concealer.
-MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark
-Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Bronzer in Medium to Dark
-MAC MSF in Warmth
*This first photo looks photoshopped!! It's not!!! 1. I have no clue how to use that program. Doh!! 2. The Ash Exfoliator is THAT good. 3. I finally learned how to apply my MAC MSF in Warmth properly. LOL
-Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Skinny Jeans (base)
-MAC Young Punk Eyeshadow
-L'oreal Carbon Voluminous Mascara in Very Black
-MAC Shy Girl Lipstick*Note: If I was to wear this look at night & not to WORK (yes I wore this to work) I would have applied false lashes & smudged some of the shadow under my eyes.
