Soft & Wild Illuminator Blush ($29 CAD for 10g)
Ohhh I love this blush! It's a light pink with a beautiful luminous finish, no glitters! As you can see it has great color payoff and it doesn't look ashy or chalky even on tan skin (my skin tone is equivalent to NC35 right now). The formula is smooth and it last all day (more than 11 hours on me)!
Don't you just love animal prints?
001 Golden Mauve
005 Glam Pink
Vamp! Wet & Dry Eyeshadows in 001 Golden Mauve and 005 Glam Pink ($17 CAD for 1g)
001 Golden Mauve is a dark mauve taupe with a shimmery finish. The formula is a bit more dry than the other Vamp Eyeshadow I've tried and the finish is less frosty, but this color is beautiful and very pigmented if you apply it the right way! It really need to be applied wet or over a primer and I find that this eyeshadow applies better with my fingers than a brush.
My favorite way to wear it is with a matte caramel brown eyeshadow into the crease and on the lower lash line (such as Anastasia Beverly Hills in Caramel or Melt Cosmetics in Unseen), a shimmery gold on the inner corner, Golden Mauve on the lid and some black kohl on the waterline. I know it sounds like a weird color combination but it's beautiful!
PUPA Milano Vamp! Eyeshadow in #204 Golden Brown is lighter and warmer. MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Stolen Moment is lighter and more mauve. Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in I-544 Pink Granite is lighter too but more pinky mauve.
005 Glam Pink is a light pink with a shimmery finish. I don't wear pink eyeshadow often, but I like this one because it's not too frosty or cool toned for my golden complexion! The texture is superb and the color payoff is great even without a primer.
It looks great all over the lid with black eyeliner and mascara!
MAC Eyeshadow in Swish is darker and has a cool undertone. Make Up For Ever I-872 Pearly Pink is much lighter.
Vamp! Duo Liner & Kajal in 001 Deep Black ($21 CAD)
I tried the Vamp! Stylo Liner Eyeliner Marker a few months ago and it seems like the formula has been improved but it's still not very water resistant. I wish it was completely waterproof because I love the felt tip applicator and the color payoff is excellent.
I didn't like the kajal either, in fact I couldn't even test it properly on the waterline because it burned my eyes! I love everything from this collection except this duo.
I'm Lipsticks in 003 Wild Red and 004 Wild Fuchsia ($20 CAD for 3.5g)
This is another product that I've already reviewed in the past (click here to see more colors!), I absolutely love these lipsticks! The creamy formula feels amazing on the lips and they are highly pigmented (although some shades aren't completely opaque). They have a yummy vanilla smell too!
003 Wild Red is a magenta red with a creamy, slightly metallic finish (you can't really see it on this photo). I'm not in love with this color, I guess it's just a matter of taste!
Urban Decay Matte Revolution in After Dark is darker, more purple. Vasanti Gel Matte in Endless Love is a tad darker and more matte. MAC Fashion Revival is darker, more purple and matte. MAC Absolute Power is a tad brighter. None of these shades have the same metallic sheen.
004 Wild Fuchsia is a bright pink with warm undertones. It's not a true fuchsia but it's a gorgeous color, I loooove it!
PUPA Milano I'm Lipstick in #208 Sunny Coral is slightly lighter and more orange, same glossy finish though. MAC Party Parrot is a bit more orange and the finish is matte. MAC Retro Matte in Relentlessly Red is a tad darker, more red and completely matte. MAC Vegas Volt is much lighter and more orange. Guerlain KissKiss Lip Color in 361 Excessive Rose is much more pink and darker.
PUPA Milano is available in select drugstores.
