Random Doodles: The Evolution of Perfection

So today I was getting through some homework when this idea popped into my head…normally I just sketch things down but this one I had to ink up. The first thing I did was sketch it out with a mechanical lead pencil. I don’t use normal pencils as they gent blunt constantly and it drives me nuts.

After that I inked it up took a photo and voila! :D

I want to see if I can get this one printed out on a t-shirt at some point. It would be quite nice to have a t-shirt with my own designs on :)

2nd Giveaway! :D

Sorry it’s slightly late…but here is my second giveaway! :D

So…rules!

1. If you are under 16 PLEASE ask your parents permission before entering. I don’t want to get angry emails from someone asking why I’m sending their son/daughter presents.

2. Leave the comment enter me below. That’s it :) Nothing complicated, just that :)

3. The competition ends on the 31st.

4. If you should win and do not reply withing 48 hours I’m sorry, but I will pick another winner.

5. You can only leave ONE comment.

6.Yes, the giveaway is international :) It wouldn’t be fare to exclude some of my subbies just because they live in other countries.

How it’s done:

At the end of the competition I take the numbers of everyone who entered, put them all in a random number generator and pick three winners…yes THREE winners :D Once they have all replied to me I send their prizes (they’re all sent by recorded delivery so that I’m sure they get there).

“So…what did you get us?”

The following pictures show the prizes for EACH winner. Sorry it’s not much but hopefully you’ll like them :)

Some of the prizes will vary in colour, for example each winner will be getting different colours of the nail quakes and sleek pallets but other than that all the prizes are identical :)

Have fun and good luck! :D

Review: Costal Scents GO Paletts (Sydney)

Disclaimer: Items sent for review purposes :)

Moving onto the colourful pallet in the GO Palette, this one one is loaded with bright and cheerful colours.

“The seven palettes each house twelve

exclusively selected shadows that reflect

colors widely found in the corner of the

world they represent”

None of the colours in the palette are matte, all of them have light, mostly heavy shimmer.

Pigmentation wise the pallet is quite good, I didn’t like it as much as the Beijing pallet, but it’s still good quality. As a summer pallet this one is pretty much perfect, colourful and exciting, ideal for anyone who likes bright and shimmery colours.

Basics:

  • $8.96 = £5.69

  • Cruelty-free!

  • Compact + sturdy

  • Travel friendly

  • Large mirror in lid

As far as which skin tones I think this would look best on these colours would look stunning on anyone with olive to dark skin.

These kinds of shimmery colours can work with pale skin but these’s no competition on how beautiful they look against dark skin. Absolutely stunning!

Bellow are swatches of the pallet in cold and warm light, it pretty much illustrates why I’d recommend this for the summer. These colours look so much better in warm light.

Conclusion:

Good pigmentation, practical packaging and colours perfect for summer

Review: Costal Scents Go Palette (Beijing)

Disclaimer: Items provided for review :)

So, moving onto part two of my review of the Go Palettes I will be reviewing Beijing today. I’ve never been to Beijing (one day *dreams*) so I can’t say if the colours are the type that make me think of the city but either way I love the colours, especially the lovely burgundy red!

All these colours have a satin feel to them, they apply very smoothly, they can be quite powdery but they are not lacking in the pigment department.

Out of all the colours there’s only one that I wasn’t impressed with but other than that I was extremely impressed with the pigmentation.

Basics:

  • $8.96 = £5.69

  • Cruelty-free!

  • Compact + sturdy

  • Travel friendly

  • Large mirror in lid

So bellow are the swatches I took, these were swatched with a base (Costal Scents Primer). Ahhhhh….just look at that lovely red/coral colour!

Just like my review of the Cairo palette (Link) I’ve rated the colours on what I thought of the pigmentation and overall quality of the eye shadows.

“The seven palettes each house twelve

exclusively selected shadows that reflect

colors widely found in the corner of the

world they represent”

None of these are matte colours all of them have some glitter but nothing really in your face, just really tiny subtle shimmer.

I also decided to show you how the colours looked in both warm and cold lighting, it’s quite funny how different an eyeshadow can look because of the lighting. Out of this whole pallet I think my favorite is the red/coral colour (top right hand corner).

I need to see if I can do a tutorial with a colour like that soon, it’s just so, so pretty!

Conclusion:

A very good pallet, excellent quality and at a very reasonable price. This is the kind of pallet I would recommend to a makeup enthusiast or someone who is just getting started with makeup.
