CP At Forest Site and Morphe Jaclyn Hill Vol II look

Today I really wanted to use the Raw Beauty Kristi Colourpop collab but I also really wanted to use the second Morphe Jaclyn Hill collab. Fortunately, the two compliment each other!

I pulled crease colors from the Jaclyn Hill palette and the lower lash line color.f

From the Colourpop palette, I pulled darker colors to add depth to the look and the lid colors.

I wanted to blend Evergreen into West Coast to the out end but West Coast was too yellow gold for what I wanted to i layered Evergreen on top instead.

Other products used:

  • WetNWild Photofocus foundation dewy in Golden Beige. I usually go for matte but this has the perfect satin finish, not dewy at all!
  • Maybelline age rewind in 120 light. I used to really like this but lately it’s been feeling dry on my skin
  • Marc Jacobs Finish Line powder
  • Doll 10 Popstar Peach. I usually use this under powder but I forgot and figured I’d try it over. I didn’t notice any affect on my foundation but it made for a much brighter blush when I layered a powder over it. This was a Jen Phelps, on YouTube, recommendation and it’s hands down one of the best formulas. In not sure how I feel about the scent though. It’s a nice, yummy vanilla but it feels weird applying it to my face. I haven’t noticed it affecting my skin though
  • WetNWild Mellow Wine blush over to set (can skip two blushes but I don’t)
  • Smashbox Cali Contour palette for bronzer/contour and highlight. I like but don’t love. I want to love this palette so I keep it around
  • Urban Decay Horchata lipstick – the vice lipsticks were reformulated and the new ones are some of the most hydrating matte lipsticks I’ve tried
  • WetNWild Brow Sessive in Medium Brown. This is $1.99 on Target’s website and Amazon. I’ve really been loving this pencil, it’s soft and blends is perfect for my needs – which is just to fill in and brush out
  • Essence lash princess mascara – the purple one

Hope everyone has a happy Thursday

NYX Ultimate Utopia Vol II

In my previous post I mentioned a friend selected colors for my to use from the NYX Utopia palette and here is a second look from another suggestion

  • I used 1 to set my base, from my crease to my brow.
  • Applied 2 to the crease to deepen it
  • I applied 3 to the outer 1/3 of my lid
  • Applied NYX glitter primer to the rest of my lid and using my finger, applied 4
  • Used 5 in the center, over 4, to tone down the teal a little
  • Applied 6 all across the lower lash
  • Used 7 to darker the lower lash outer edge

I loved the way this look came out. I’ve really been enjoying using color stories suggested by others.

PS I tried the tiktok lip liner trick and…it’s not my thing. Lol!

Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Enchanted look

I keep watching YouTubers talk about how they change up their makeup based on the seasons. I’m over here barely able to match colors and patterns.

So, I do what I want (haha I do what I *can*).

In order and placement:

  • Elm in crease and to set base (concealer or shadow primer)
  • Grim to darken crease
  • Vine in outer 1/3 of lid
  • Illusion in the center blended into vine
  • Hazel in inner 1/3 blended into Illusion
  • Realized the look was darker than I intended so I softly patted Frost all over lid
  • Charm tight lined along lower lashes
  • Elm to soften charm

I love the Forever Flawless palettes. The shadows are so easy to blend, apply, build up and last all day.

For my lipstick I used Colourpop Curve II all over

Do you change your look based on the seasons or time of the year?

Eyelook and Mascara Review

I received this LA Girl Cosmetics Jetsetter mascara free to test. I was excited to test this because I’m all about inexpensive mascara, regular price this is $7US at Ulta and the brand goes on sale fairly often.

The key benefits claimed are:

  • Buildable, smudge-proof, paraben free formula
  • Sky high lift and length
  • Water and flake resistant

In my experience the formula is not buildable nor does it provide any kind of lifting or length.

To get my lashes to look as shown in the pictures, I had to apply three coats of mascara. I would have done another layer to make them darker but on the third layer my lashes started to clump and look like spider legs. I waited until the mascara dried to brush through my lashes with a clean spoolie which made them less clumpy. Having done this I can attest that the mascara is not flakey.

I give this a three out of five stars and would not recommend it.

Have you tried this mascara? What are your thoughts?
