Burn baby, BURN!

Fire, one of my secret obsessions. I love fire, and without sounding like a total freak, they’re just so pretty. I got the sugarpill palette a while ago, and thought it was about time I did a look using more than just one of the eyeshadows, so here we go! It was filmed late at night, so the lighting isn’t the best, but what can you do? I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and if you have any questions, just leave them down below and I’ll answer them!

Instant Chic

I hate myself for doing this, but yes, I have another limited edition product to show you guys. But to my defence, I always fall in love with the products I can’t get once I run out of them, fml. Haha, anyway, this blush is from the pret a papier from the summer of 2010. I’m crossing my fingers for MAC to repromote this blush, its amazing.The container comes with 6 grams or 0.21 US OZ.

The first picture is taken in natural daylight, so it’s the one that’s the comparable  to the colour in real life. But anyway this is one of my most used blushes. Instant chic and Bite of an apple blush are the ones I’ll use for everyday basis, if it’s not Insant chic, it’s bite of an apple 90% of the time. The blush is matte even though it’s a sheertone, and when you apply it you have to work it into your skin and not just pack it on people. If you take your time with the blush, and blends it nicely, it makes the perfect I-got-plenty-of-sleep kinda look, and not the oh-crap-I-was-up-all-night-watching-movies looks that is kinda familiar to me and my friends.

This blush can be pared with anything. I use my bronzer in golden and MSF in perfect topping, and it looks pretty good if I might say so without sounding really cocky. The sheer coral colour gives a nice everyday glow to your face. I have never tried it out on a darker skin tone, but on the pale creatures out there(like myself) this is our blush!

“Instant Chic is the most unique of the three blushes, despite not having the best color pay off (it is a sheertone, though).  It’s coral enough to be perfect for summer and add some brightness to cheeks, but it’s not so warm that only warmer skin tones will like it.  I do think it’s a better shade for light to medium skin tones, and if you’re of a deeper skin tone, you may want to swatch it in person first.” – Temptalia.com

Overall opinion:

This blush is my everyday blush, so of course I love it. I would without a doubt repurchase it, no question asked. An amazing product for everyday or just to build up in the summertime for the perfect natural coral cheeks.

Bite of an apple

This blush is a powder blush from MAC cosmetics, and it came out with the venomous villains collection. I went all out for this collection and almost ran over one girl to get my products, true story. There’s just something about the Disney theme that made me have the I-am-going-to-get-my-stuff-no-mather-who-I-have-to-kill attitude. You can’t get the product anymore unless you go to a CCO or buy it online. The blush comes with 6 grams or 0.21 US OZ.

The picture imprinted on the cover of the blush is of the Evil Queen from Snow white, and she’s pulling a side the curtains. The clear part sticks out from the rest of the container, and I’ve had some problems with it. The clear part on my blush didn’t go all the way out, if that makes sense, so after about a month it fell out. And it has done that four or five times afterwards, but I just pop it back in, no biggie. The rest of the container is shiny black, and not the matte way it normally is.

The colour of the blush is a bright red, with a slight hint of pink in it. It has a matte finish so you’ll have to work with the blending a bit, and it’s crazy pigmented! I only dip my angled brush in it three times, and that’s dips and no swirly motions. When it comes to who it can be used on I would say everyone. When a pale-ass-ghost like myself can use it, everyone can. Whenever I don’t know which blush to put on, I always go back to this one or Instant Chic (which I will have a review on soon) You just need to apply it properly. I’ve used my blush a lot since I got it, and the print is still on it, that’s how little you actually need.

Overall:

This blush is AMAZING! I love it, and would recommend it to everyone who can get their hands on it. I hope MAC repromotes it sometime in the future. Like I said, it’s perfect for all skin tones and colours. A must have in my book.
