What happens in London…

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 12 - 2009

stays in Lon… usually comes home with me in a lovely iconic yellow paper bag šŸ˜‰

So, I was up in London on Saturday for the wonderful Aussie Project Angel event (more details to come later..) and saw lots of lovely things to add to my stash.

Ok, well I didn’t get *all* these bits in London.. the Stila stuff I ordered a couple of weeks ago and turned up today so thought I’d throw them in.

I went on a bit of a lipstick buying rampage – and had to be physically restrained from buying another Shu one that I had my eye on.

On the left, the unmistakable Lingerie Pink… and on the right, the lovely Shu Rouge Unlimited BG907.

I had no intentions of buying Lingerie Pink until I tried it on out of pure curiousity at the counter.Ā  Instant love.

I first saw the Shu one when I went to the Maybelline Event last month and have lusted after it ever since.

Kryolan Supra Color Black Greasepaint recommended to me by LondonMUGirl.Ā  First impressions… wonderful to blend eyeshadow over compared to UDPP, but it starts creasing after 3hrs šŸ™

L-R: MAC Woodwinked (been on my wishlist a LONG time), Kryolan Matte Highlight (got this by accident after SA put the wrong eyeshadow in my bag… grrr.)

Well, that concludes my first proper “haul” post… hope it wasn’t too dull.Ā  I enjoy reading about everyone else’s newest acquisitions, but everyone is different so apologies if this was a boring read – move along, I’m done now!

Oh, and the Stila can wait ’till the rest of my order turns up šŸ™‚


FOTD – Kryolan Palette (again)

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 27 - 2009

So, after reading this kind comment from Ceona on my last FOTD post:

I love this palette and the way youā€™ve used it. So tempted to get one myself. Iā€™m not sure about that blue though, how would you use it with the other colours? I am stuck in a brown/bronze/gold eyeshadow rut.

I realised that I too was mostly stuck in a bronze/gold shadow rut… but I’m loving it and don’t wanna leave, especially now Autumn is drawing near with all it’s bronzey shades! So, instead I thought I’d spice it up a little by using the blue in the palette foiled (wet) as a liner.

I *think* it works, although I’d probably use the same gold on the lower lashline as I did on the lids next time.

Used:

Kryolan Shades Palette in Santiago

Hope the shadows aren’t too distracting, I did this quite late at night and had to use my (bounced) flash to light my face.

Happy roast dinner day! (although I’ve got baked potato, so I dunno why I’m getting all excited..)

FOTD Kryolan Shades Palette in Santiago

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 22 - 2009

A couple of weeeks ago whilst killing some time waiting to head off to the Maybelline event… Myself, Sian, Sophie, Lydia & Leanne spent a little time browsing Charles Fox in Covent Garden.

I spied upon this little palette and loved it’s metallic sheenĀ  and wearable Autumnal shades.Ā  Upon closer inspection it turned out to be a Kryolan “Shades” Palette in Santiago.

Pretty no?Ā  I love the inclusion of the dark blue over there on the right… great addition.Ā  And the brush that comes with the palette isn’t completely useless either which is more than refreshing!Ā  I can’t remember theĀ exact price but it was around Ā£15.
