Hey Everyone!

It’s been a while since I made a look and with the new UD NYC Book of Shadows still at Sephora stores, I thought it would be fun to create a look with the palette for all of those people who don’t know what to do with it.

I’m probably queen of smoky eyes because that’s my favourite look so here’s one you can do for a fun girl’s night out! I suggest you view the video, it’s less than five minutes.

Smoky, with green gray and purple undertones

So if you’re really not up for videos, it doesn’t take too much

Your To-Do List:

1. Always prime if you want vivid eye-shadows. First, I put on a bit of MAC’s prep and prime eye just to create a bare canvas. Then I put the Urban Decay Primer Potion on my lids to make those shadows stay

Hey Everyone!

I got a little request a while back by the lovely Jay, asking:

 

Jay has been with me since the very beginning so of course anything she asks I do. Haha. Check her blog out here: http://feistyskies.onsugar.com! and this is a great question for all of you wondering what exactly is the difference between the drugstore Maybelline Dream Matte Powder and the department store MAC MSF Natural. Simple, really.
From a consumer view, Maybelline Dream Matte Powder compared to the MSF Natural…

1. is much lighter on the skin

2. has a lot less coverage than the MSF Natural

3. has a less finer and smoother powder

Hello Everyone!

I hope your day is going stellar. Today I’ll be doing a review of a pretty stellar product – the highly raved Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. If ever you think of the brand Bobbi Brown, the shimmer bricks are probably one of the first products you can call up. These babies aren’t just blushes, or face powders, they’re shimmery highlighters that are supposed to add radiance and a healthy beam to any look.

Let’s look at the Packaging:

It’s packaged in a sturdy, commonly high-end case with a mirror and the brick much like a mineralized skinfinish, but baked in strips. The Body Shop has a very similar product as well, I think it’s called shimmer strips. The best way to use this is to take a fluffy white haired brush, just like the MAC 168 because it’s easier buffed onto the cheeks rather than patted on with say a smaller blush brush.

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to roseannebeauty’s first edition of Blogshop Spotlight. This is just my little way of giving back to small blogshops or online arenas because I know very well how it was like trying to get my name out in this huge sea of online haunts. This is just the first edition. I’m very well thinking of making a blogshop spotlight every two months about two or three notable blogshops at one go + a chance for giveaways. I think it would be a great way to help small blogshops get their name out, have great giveaways for everyone and I reckon a single post wouldn’t get in the way every two months or so. What do you think?

Hey Everyone!

I have to stay that reviewing face masks are a challenge. You can’t use them everyday, you put them on once and you can’t really see the difference at times but I’m going to do my best for you. Here’s a review of the Leader’s Clinic Masks which were sponsored to me way back and I didn’t find the time to do until now. Because of the amount of masks given to me, I think doing them slowly in parts, highlighting three at a time is best. You can get these masks at Guardian and they make great stress-relievers when you put them all in the fridge first and whip em out when you need a break.

Hey Everyone,

The Urban Decay Book of Shadows isn’t just a makeup item, the whole lot have easily become the collectibles of the makeup world, making these babies pretty special. Perhaps it was the exclusivity, the mad rush to book a palette, the fact that it was a Disney and Alice in Wonderland collaboration that made the previous book of shadows so successful. Yet, the NYDC palette didn’t really rock the boat and I was surprised to see it still in stores when I came home from Melbourne but knowing that they are limited edition, I quickly swept one off the shelf.

I don’ know what it is, but I keep thinking to myself, “was it just an impulse buy or is the new Urban Decay NYDC Book of Shadows Vol. III really worth it?”
