88 Warm Palette

So I'm on track this time.... I got to pick up the 88 Warm Palette from Coastal Scent basically the week it came out!
Here are some pictures and video of the rest of the haul!!

I just did a quicky look using the sponge apps that came with the palette... just for fun. No base!!! I used the black from the palette to soft line the eye. Please don't mind the brows( i did the whole look with the sponge LOL)

Johnny Lavoy's 9x9 by the PowerGroup

I know I did a video about this last week, here are some pictures and a written review I promised.

Ok here's the back story.... I went to this years NYC Makeup show with Ivette (Girlcanpaint from youtube) and got to met her friend.... the wonderful and dare I say DREAMY Johnny Lavoy. As he performed his wonderful tricks (mini makeover) on Ivette, I was excited to watch. He used 5 of the 7 pigments that come in his set, from the Powder Group. He's 9x9 has 7 pigments and 2 creamy nail polished. There are 3 other kits sold by the Powder Group (James Vincent , Kate Best, and Gregg Hubbard) all 4 have different groupings of makeup. Including nail polishes, pigments, cream bases, and eye shadows. And hello it all comes in a clear makeup bag!!! I have been "playing" with these gems of my makeup collection for a few weeks now.... the textures are wonderful wet and dry. Both ways work wonderful... I give more detail about the uses in my video.

As I said in the video I used a home made mixing medium of water and Glycerin.... wet my brush, dipped and applied!

The links above show where and how you can pick up your own 9x9.

Check out the video from Girlcanpaint of Johnny working the 9x9.

Great find at the M.U.S 2009

Pencil Me In Cosmetics!!!

What a great find from the Makeup Show 2009. Linda Eisner the owner and founder of the pencils hooked me up at the show with 3 of her really cool Pencils. At the show I was really impressed that her daughter , Stephanie had done her WHOLE eye look with just using the pencils and a small e/s brush. I meet them @ close to 4:30pm and Stephanie stated that she had had the makeup on from 6:30am!!! Crazy.... right! So Linda hand picked the ones she thought I should try... Orchid Spark, Char-kol, and Emerald City. You guys know I love purples!!!

WOW, I was really impressed once I came home. The textures of these pencils are wonderful. Creamy but not smudge, Intense but not funky, and good for ya!! So what is the story with these pencils you may ask. Well as Linda so perfectly stated in her interview with Koren (from EnKoreMakeup, youtube GURU) the eye area is one of the few places that accepts nutrients. So these pencils are infused with Vitamins and Anti-Oxidants (please watch the interview for list of vitamins!!!) Plus they include a ton of natural ingredients. Also, wait for it..... They each come with BUILT in sharpener!! Right in the cap. Perfect no major cleanup just sharpen and go!!

Ok so with this look I just used the Orchid Spark which has a great silver glitter(the glitters are NOT waterline safe) on the upper lash line. I did it semi thick cause I knew I wasn't going to do anything else to my eye area! I just popped a little liquid black liner to give the wing-out some definition. and that's it!!! I added mascara. What a simple effective summer look... right. Just enough pop of color to be fun, but not time consuming!!

The line has 30 colors... like Snow a true white, 24 Karat a rich gold, and Pink Lady Grease Fans would be proud!!
