Review: Violent Eyes Glitteratti Tattoo Glitter Eyeliner Appliques

The makers of Violent Lips Tattoo's have introduced Violent Eyes, the debut collection of glittery temporary eye appliques that simplify the glittery lid. I've been curious about these eyeliner tattoo's ever since Dior put out their eyeliner stickers, but at $60 a pop I call that getting tricked by bizzzzness and never tried them. With such a reasonable price and already being fond of the Lip Tattoo's (review here) why not?

LOTD: MAC Candy Yum Yum "The Lipstick Dreams Were Made Of"

MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick is one I passed on when it first debuted thinking "do I really need ANOTHER hot pink lipstick". Then I saw Cyndi Lauper wearing it and I was kicking myself for not getting it. Thanks to MAC for repromoting the most wanted to the permanent line I recieved one as an early B-day gift...hey it doesn't count in the growing lipstick tally if you didn't buy it yourself right? ;) It's just as pleasantly pink as I imagined. This little baby would make a sweeeeet Lip for Valentine's Day :) 
The color is a neon matte blue-based pink that's surprisingly easy to wear and one so many can pull off, especially cool tones and omg it looks insaaaanely good on darker skin tones. The texture isn't as full coverage as some other MAC matte's, but there's something about the almost chalky finish that I find pleasing. This shade's a real show stopper on it's own so I like to pair it with simple neutral toned eyes (Too Faced Boudoir Eyes today) or mettalics at night. Pink Pigeon had previously taken the reign as my go-to shade for Winter, but Candy Yum Yum is slightly more punchy. Irrisistable even if you own a thousand other pinks. Get It.

I think this lipstick just made me dream I was in an 80's hair band....shredded guns n' roses tee. check, denim vest. check, jacked up hair. check, 80's lipstick. check...I don't care...

Review & Look: Colorful Ombre Eyebrow's & Hair with Anastasia Hyper Color Hair & Brow Powder

My Mission: To wear Colorful Eyebrows and not look like A. a Clown or B. Crazy. Not having colorful hair to match I wasn't sure I could pull this look off, but I tried! I used Anastasia's Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powder to create this bold Ombre Brow effect of pink, purple, and blue. These are awesome if you have brightly colored locks (or want some!) and like your eyebrow's to match or if you just have the guts to wear some serious brow color :)
Anastasia Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powder gives you an intense flash of hair color without dying, bleaching, or spending hours in the salon and it works on all hair colors. Apply to brows with an angled brush or rub the powder onto the tips of your hair or streak it for outrageously fabulous looks that wash out with ease. Set with hair spray when applying to hair or Hypercolor Brow Gel when applying to the brows.

If you were curious as to how I got my pink roots (in the pink) and teal tipped bangs and streaks (teal tornado), this is it. I'm no stranger to crazy hair color. I've had every color of hair under the sun, but these days I opt for more sunshine than rainbows. Hypercolor's are a temporary way to indulge your creative hair color fantasy's with out the commitment or damage. It's ideal if you have a strict job or school dress code and want to have fun on the weekends or if you just get bored with hair color fast. They're easy to apply, just rub the color from the pot on to the strands and set with hairspray. All of the colors rinsed right out of my light hair with only the pink leaving a slight pastel pink to it the next day. These are so much fun! The only improvement I can even think of is that I hope they expand the color range to include red & black, simply because those are my favorite colors.  

Tip: My favorite way to wear these is heavily brushed out. It takes them from super saturated to a soft pastel. It's like My Little Pony hair! Giving them a run through with a brush will also reduce the "chalky" look. They can be a tad messy, so wear dark clothing that you won't be too worried about staining when applying.
Brow To: If you have darker brows, run a spooley brush with concealer through them to lighten them up. Apply with an angled brush (like MAC #266 or Anastasia's Angled Cut Brush) and set with Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. Start with In the pink, fade in to Ultra Violet at the Arch, and finish up wth Electric Blue. (Note: Pink shouldn't be used near the eyes, use at your own risk).

Then I thought..why stop stop there and had to put my own 80's spin to it by buffing the colors out on to the face...
