Acid Green Devil (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out Vestment (a deep metallic blackened teal) with Exodus (a light matte acid green) together and came up with this eyeshadow combination.  I added in Devil (a matte orange) into the crease to add some warmth and a punchy twist to the look.

To complement the look, I used Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lolita II’ (a medium warm terracotta-chestnut) on the lips and The Balm ‘Balm Springs’ blusher (a matte medium dusty, earthy rose) on the cheeks.  You can read more, see photos and view swatches of Lolita II here.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (Mother and Lolita II)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kat Von D is a brand that I hadn’t tried until earlier this year when I took a trip to Dubai to meet some friends.  I was really excited to see that there was a Kat Von D counter in the Sephora and treated myself to a few products: a concealer (middle in the pic above), a lipstick and two of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (left and right in the pic above).  I like the concealer and lipstick but I particularly love the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and so thought it was time for a post!!

Post Alert: I recently also treated myself to the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette.  Loooove this palette so much! You can read more on the palette here and see combination ideas here. Continue reading

Golden Relic (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (click here to read more about this product) to create this quick and easy golden peach combination.  I wanted to create something which looked fresh and bright on the eyes, compared to the smokey, sultry blue combination featured in my first Saint and Sinner look post here.  I used only one brush (the MAC 239) to create this look as well, keeping things nice and simple.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in ‘My Digits’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of my favourite plum lipsticks (MAC Craving) finished a while ago (sob!) and so there was a wee plum coloured gap in my lipstick collection.  Rather than buying the same shade again, I really wanted to try out a similar shade from another brand.  There is something really fun about trying out a similar shade from another brand, particularly one that I haven’t tried before.  Enter Smashbox ‘Be Legendary Lipstick’ in ‘My Digits’!

Classic Grey Taupe Eye (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out a more neutral combination with the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (see my post on this palette, including photos and swatches here) and came up with this light greyish-taupe look.

Combination Ideas: This look is classic enough that it can go really well with all sorts of lip colours.  I wore this combination with Too Faced Wham lipstick, a creamy, glimmering berry shade with pink, silver and purple sparkles.  You could also try this eyeshadow with pinks, reds and deeper berry hues.

I recently purchased the new Kat Von D Saint and Sinners Eyeshadow Palette (click here to read about this product, see photos and view swatches) and just couldn’t resist trying out Ministry on the lid.  For this look, I combined it with Stigmata, Crucifix and Relic to create a smokey yet colourful look.

Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Kat Von D ‘Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette’ launched in October at Debenhams, it took me a wee while to decide whether or not to purchase it.  Not because of the shade selection or the quality (it’s amazing on both counts!) but due to the £52 price tag.  The palette costs more than I would usually spend on an eyeshadow palette and so I really wanted to make sure it would be a good investment for me before forking out for it.  Now that I have it, I am soooooo glad that I got it!!!!

Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in Shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Around Autumn last year, Kiko launched their new range of lip glosses: the Hydra Lip Gloss, touted as a ‘softening lipgloss for shiny, plumped lips’.  I purchased shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink to try when they came out and love the glossiness, pigment and non-sticky nature of the formula.  I recently purchased shade 16 Iridescent Ruby and love it just as much (let me know if you would like to see a post on this shade too).  It’s been a while since I have written a Kiko post so I thought it was time to put a post together on this fabulous product!
