FOTD: Aquamarine and Purple (Using Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the shimmery aqua tone of Make Magic in the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette (you can read more about this palette here) and thought it would look beautiful on the lids alongside Heart and Harmony.  I really love how the shades blended together in this look.  I used Heart (a matte pink) in the crease and it created a blue-ish shade where the edges met Make Magic.  This step really added extra dimension to the look.

MAC ‘Ageless Beauty’ Masterclass Event: Part Two

 

MAC Masterclass Event: Some of the free goodies and purchases

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of months ago, I attended a MAC Masterclass event focusing on ‘Ageless Beauty’.  You can read my first post providing background on the event here.

This particular post focuses on the content covered in the Masterclass.  The Masterclass was called ‘Ageless Beauty’, with the focus on achieving beautiful skin at all ages.  The post gives more details on the class content, skin care routine, day look and evening look.

I have written a series of posts about the event which I will be posting on the site.  Each part focuses on a specific aspect, so you can either read them all or go to the one that you are specifically interested in.  Part One (read more here) provides Background to the Masterclass (what is a MAC Masterclass, cost and booking, structure, goodie bag, after the event).  Part Two (this post) covers the Masterclass Content and Look Overview (skin care, day time look, evening look).  Part Three will provide details on the tips and techniques I learned from the event.

Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette

 

Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Morphe recently released their Live in Color Artistry Palette as part of Pride celebrations across June/July 2019.  This is the first time I have purchased a product from Morphe; I couldn’t resist this palette as I love colourful eyeshadows!

I think the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette is a fantastic choice if you love colour or want to add some colour to your existing collection.  There is an incredible assortment of shades, tones and finishes in the palette, giving so many possibilities for different looks and colour combinations.  The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented, give fantastic colour payoff and are blendable, making them easy to work with when creating looks.

I feel so inspired every time I pick up this palette and find myself reaching for different shades to create fun looks.  It’s so easy to stick with the same shades in a palette, so I think it is fantastic that this palette encourages me to experiment and try out all sorts of colours.

A wonderful aspect to this palette is that 100% of net proceeds from the collection (there is also a brush set available) will be made to The Trevor Project.  The Trevor Project is a US-based non-profit organisation which helps to fund 24/7 suicide prevention and crisis intervention services for LGBTQ+ youth.  It’s really nice to feel you are giving something back through purchasing this beautiful eyeshadow palette.

Naturally Sparkly With Inglot 114 Pigment

 

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been enjoying trying out products from Inglot recently and picked up one of their pure pigments – 114 – to try out.  This pigment really stood out to me, as it contains a gorgeous mix of light blue, green and aqua sparkles. 

The product can give a softer sparkle when patted on dry or yield a high shine glimmer when applied damp with a mixing medium.  I think it’s such a beautiful shade and can’t wait to experiment with more combinations!

Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows

 

Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows and Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inglot recently released the ‘Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows’ collection, a new formula for the brand which is part of the 10 year anniversary celebration.  The 10 shades are unique to the brand and inspired by their loose pure pigment range.

The amazing feature of this release is that you have the option to purchase all 10 shades, along with the limited edition Inglot 10 Palette (discounted to £56, usual price £65) or buy shades individually (£5 each).  It’s not often you have the choice over which shades you select, as there are times when you purchase a palette but only want – or end up using – some of them.

The Cream Pressed Pigment eyeshadows are available for purchase elsewhere in the world, if you live outside the UK and Ireland.  The ‘Inglot 10’ palette isn’t available for purchase if you aren’t in the UK or Ireland.  However, Inglot is instead offering a Freedom System Partylicious Palette, along with 10% off when you purchase the full set of 10 eyeshadows.

This post is slightly mixed, in that whilst I think these eyeshadows are amazing, there are some issues with them. I’ve discussed the versatile and beautifully sparkly nature of these eyeshadows, as well as the issues concerning their fragility, in the post in detail below.  I think the eyeshadows are definitely worth getting but it is helpful to know about the issues I have found so you can make a more informed choice on whether to purchase them.

MAC Strobe Cream in Gold Lite

I recently purchased MAC Strobe Cream in Gold Lite after seeing the product used as part of a MAC Masterclass event (you can read more about the event here).  I thought it looked – and sounded like – an extremely versatile product when I saw it being showcased at the event.   I’ve read so much about this product being amazing in magazines and online, so I thought it would be fun to try it out myself.

I’m so pleased I decided to try it out as I have been enjoying using it so much! This product gives my face a subtle ‘lit from within’, glow, making it look incredibly healthy and naturally glowy.

The cream adds in a little extra moisture to my skin and absorbs quickly to leave a non-greasy, smooth, glowy finish. I think it is a great option for anyone who wants to add some extra radiance and moisture to their face without having any tackiness or too much dewiness.

There are five shades of Strobe Cream available, as well as a mini version of one shade (Pink Lite). The range of shades means you can choose whichever one you prefer or one which works well with your skin tone.
