Blusherine goes Rainbow :o)

Inspired by Leesha's post I decided to get a little crazy in the eye color department...

I am clearly nowhere near her skills but I love watching her turorials on youtube and so this morning I decided it was time for a rainbow color look...

I must admit that it looks better in the picture than it does in real life... :o))

Anyway, I used the Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette, and these were the colors I picked out:

1) inner part of the lid
2) center part of the lid
3) outer part of the lid
4) very lightly, in the crease

As liner I used the Essence gel liner in Berlin Rocks.

Hope you like it and that you try going wild with colors once in while, too! ;-)

Essie "Chinchilly" Nail Polish

Essie Chinchilly is a grey creme polish that I have been loving lately.

It's a warmer grey, meaning it leans toward taupe, but it's more grey than taupe. In the bottle it looks more taupe, though. It's very complicated ;-)

I used:
Base Coat: Micro Cell 2000 Nail Repair
Two coats of Essie Chinchilly
Top Coat: Essence Better than Gel Nails

Excuse the scratchy nail polish surface, I forgot to wipe off my hand cream really well... :-)

Catrice Absolute Eye Colours

Catrice launched new eyeshadows recently and of course I had go and check them out ;-) (of course!)

Catrice makes some pretty decent eyeshadows, they only cost 2,79 euros a piece and if they ever come out with a customizable empty palette and provide the shadows as refills, I am so there!!

For now I am just collecting the shades until I depot them all.

So anyway, two of the new eyeshadows really caught my eye:

1) C'mon Chameleon (on the left, similar to MAC Club)
2) My first Copperware Party (on the right, similar to MAC Satin Taupe)

I tried them out right away and here is what I came up with:

Because I used whatever was within my reach, I had to take pictures of the shadows, in order to remember :-)

So here we go:

On the lid, lower lashline and in the crease:
My first Copperware Party (right)

On the outer lid and outer lower lashline
C'mon Chameleon (left)

To warm up the brow bone:
Top right color from my ELF Warm Bronzer

As highlight:
Bottom left color from ELF Warm Bronzer

To deepen up the crease and create an outer v:
Matte black color from Sleek Storm Palette, sure any black will do...

Hope you enjoyed my little... uhhmm.... colorstory! :-)

MAC Up the Amp Lipstick

Hi Lovelies!

I am wearing MAC Up the Amp today, a lipstick that I recently Back to MAC'd for. It's creamy and opaque and I like to wear it on top of lip balm, to make it a little less BAM! :-)

The finish is Amplified, my second-favorite after Lustre, and colorwise it's a lavender toned purple, or a deep lavender, so to say. It's permanent in the MAC range.

I first noticed this color on Makeup by Risa's Channel on Youtube a long time ago and I wanted to have it ever since then.

Here is a picture of when I got it, all nice and pretty, just out of the box:

Back from Mallorca

So swirruska guessed right, my holiday destination was Mallorca.
(In English it is spelled Majorca, but I'll stick with the Spanish and Catalan name).

It's the largest of the Balearic Islands, it's located in the Mediterranean Sea and it belongs to Spain.

It's a beautiful beautiful island.

It has a bad reputation because loads of German and British tourists get totally wasted there every year (my German readers will be familiar with the term "Ballermann" for sure).

But if you avoid the crowds and leave the crammed beaches, you will find beautiful landscapes, amazing coast-lines and beautiful solitary beaches.

I'll leave you with a few photos that I took, I hope you'll like them!
