Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! Here’s my look for the day :) I just HAD to wear Coral Crush. I do adore it, especially with Too Faced’s Sparkler Glamour Gloss on top! The blue sprinkles made me happy. I just sort of picked colors and threw them together after reaching into my Aromaleigh drawer and pulling out Planetearth, as I’d been dying to wear that again.

Descriptions:
Planetearth – subtly shimmering intense primary blue with pink sparkles.
Sylph – brilliant sparkling jewels in a white plush matte base.
Looking Glass – Soft, nearly matte sky shade, leaning towards turquoise rather than pure blue. Slight satin finish.
Cheshire Cat Grin – Bright, striking royal filled with blue sparkle. Can be made to look very metallic when applied wet.
Freshwater – bright summer blue (veluxepearl)
Vex – soft pale green duochrome with pink opalescent shimmer (frost)
Crystal Avalanche – white with reflects (veluxepearl)

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Looking Glass – on eyelid
Aromaleigh Planetearth – crease
Aromaleigh Sylph – on top of Looking Glass and Planetearth to blend the two together and make them shimmery
MAC Freshwater – outer vee blended into crease and lower lash line
Fyrinnae Cheshire Cat Grin – outer corner of eye
MAC Vex – inner corners of eye
MAC Crystal Avalanche – to highlight
Aromaleigh Black Out Gel – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero – lower water line
Benefit BadGal Lash Mascara in Black

Cheeks:
Meow blush in Illuminate

Lips:
Too Faced Borderline Lipliner in Clear
Maybelline Lipstick in Coral Crush
Too Faced Sparkler Glamour Gloss in Sapphire Spark


I think my lips look gorgeous!

Face:
Aromaleigh Glissade in 1CL + Alabaster
Aromaleigh Ultra Resolution Finishing Powder in Peaches n’ Cream

I had some things come in the mail today, too.

I ended up bidding on one of the Aromaleigh Charity Auctions for the American Cancer Society. I won the color Frankincense.
It’s described as a deep plummy black smooth eyeliner with multidimensional prism.

I won an auction from Aromaleigh’s Menagerie for the travel size of Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeliner in Yeyo, which is a metallic white. With it, I got a free full size Gothic Lolita eye shadow in Aqua Nightmare.

I also received 2 of my Hot in the City colors that I ordered, along with a care package from Kristen of Aromaleigh. She sent me the 4 new Gothic Lolita Lippies (which I was going to purchase anyways!) a Sugar lip palette, a Hard Candy key chain lip gloss charm, UD’s 24/7 eyeliner pencils in 2 of my favorite colors – Lucky and Zero, and a Hard Candy Jewel palette. This was incredibly sweet of her.


I also received some makeup finishing spray from Skindinavia to try out. I’ve heard good things about them from friends, so I’m looking forward to trying them out.

Now, on to swatches!

First up, eye shadows, as requested.
I was asked to compare Aqua Nightmare to Return to Tiffany’s.

Here are the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner swatches:

And here’s what you’ve been waiting for, the 4 new Gothic Lolita Lip Colors!

I also took pictures of me wearing Cakewalk.

I hope everyone had a great Friday. Once I finished with work, I was home briefly, and then we went to have dinner and see the new Harry Potter. No spoilers, but the movie left me feeling very out of sorts. I definitely enjoyed it. Oh, and I enjoyed seeing the new Twilight trailer, too.

      Coral Crush looks beautiful on you. The entire FOTD is just perfect. That looks like a fun mail haul and I'm looking forward to your 'Cool Flash' review. I've never used a product like that, although I've considered it.

      Being from Scandinavia, I just have to post something now. Scandinavia in Swedish is "skandinavien" and there are no dots over the A. That is a different letter that sounds different when you say it. I know that "Skandinävia" probably just wanted their brand to seem more exotic and nordic ;)

      Thank you so much for Aromaleigh Gothic Lolita lip color swatches! And Aqua nightmare and Return to Tiffany's comparison. I just can't decide which one to order… Which is your favorite?

      Hi Mary!
      Can you believe Coral Crush is only like $5 from Walgreens?
      So far I really like the moist texture of these lipsticks.
      It'll be interesting to see how the Cool Flash works.
      I've never tried setting my mineral makeup with a spray.

      Hi Marie,
      My apologies for not getting the dots over the ä in my post, I had to look up what my keyboard command was to do that. And yes, I think you're entirely right, I think that they chose that name to see more exotic and nordic.

      Hi Nea,
      You're quite welcome for the swatches!
      It's hard for me to decide between Return to Tiffany's and Aqua Nightmare. If you were only going to buy one I'd lean towards Return to Tiffany's because it's LE and Aqua Nightmare is part of a permanent line. RtT's is a slightly lighter shade (it really does match a tiffany's box) and really seems to open up the eyes when you use it.
