LOVE this look. LOVE those lips! Not an easy shade for most people to wear. Course it looks great on you I can see now what you mean a/b the sticky base. You are using the NYX cream shadows in matching colors. Are the colors not as vibrant (or let's say how less vibrant) if you used, say, Oyster all over the lid ommiting Hot Pink?
I'm not sure. I would have to try it by itself with Oyster. I'll see about swatching for you on the different bases to see how it looks for you.I like using bases to intensify colors And thank you on the lips, I LOVE it
P.S. I think this would be a killer Valentine's Day look!
Hehe, synchronized posting. I always think of something else to say once I've written something. Thanks for the swatching, only do it if you have time/feel like it of course!
Beautiful!!!! Those colors are really sparkly but so super pretty.
GORGEOUS!!! I 've always wanted to try Archetype cosmetics but I'm afraid they'll take too long to get here and I might not be patient enough lol
I love seeing these "in action", the color combo is really pretty and I love the lips as well
Love the lips! Jar of Sorrows looks like a really good crease color.
Hi Tally,I'll try to do it when I get home from work today
Hi Katrina,Most of the Archetype stuff is super sparkly!
Hi MissTat,Thanks!I've received both orders that I've placed with them, but I've never received answers to my emails sent to their email address. I've only received contact via MySpace, and not for about a month.
Hi Madeline,Thanks!I thikn Jar of Sorrows is an amazing crease color. I'm not sure that I own anything else remotely close to it.
I love this, the colors look really good on you. It's gorgeous! Jar of sorrow looks nothing like the baggie. (Which is often the case) These are colors I would have difficulty wearing, but it's what I always thought I could wear. Seeing them on you it's stunning! You always do so well with the lippie looking great with the whole look.
Hi Lyndsey!Thank you!I never wore pink really until I tried Aromaleigh. Even then, I think that I don't tend to buy pinks. Scream Queen was free and I think Jar of Sorrows was free, but wow is it amazing on. I did pick out Lolita's Lollipop and China White.I'm missing Fall, and that's why I'm gravitating towards the rich lip. I love plum colors like that with a blue-violet reflect.I'm glad you like it
I love how your eyes and lips balance each other out- very glamour-ish sultry… I sent Archetype an email and I got reply fast this time around. I am going to re-order from Archetype. Thank you for pointing them out after I gave up on them. Their colors are one of the most unique and sparkliest. Second time's the charmer.
Hi Julia,I'm glad you're going to give them a chance I think they make some really nice eye shadows and lippies. I'm glad they emailed you back!
Tallys right, it would be a great Valentines day look Love the look
