Neutral Natural Look with Paintpots and Maybelline SuperStay Timeless Toffee

Was meant to spend the day in theater in scrubs and mask so kept it pretty simple today and fell in LOVE with the Maybelline Superstay 24 hr lip colour in Timeless Toffee- gorgeous gorgeous colour. Thank you Amy for the gift and for your wonderful taste! You always seem to know what I'll love. Will report back on how it wears through the day, but wow so far!

Have you got any favourite Colours in that Maybelline SuperStay 24hr lip colour range?

Neutral Lorac Eye with Colourful Revlon Red Velvet Lip

Wanted to do a neutral eye with a colourful lip today for work and I was really pleased with the Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet as well as the beautiful colour and pigmentation of the Lorac eyeshadow palette. Reapplied the beautifully cool-toned creamy deep blue-red Lip Butter about 4 times between 8am and 4pm and although it fades very fast, the stain it leaves behind ensures your lips are not without colour at any point through the day.

Naked Again- neutral daytime using the Naked Palette 2

My first time with Urban Decay's Naked Palette 2 today. My sister bought it for me in the US when it was first released and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it when the box arrived the other day. Look out for that haul coming soon. I mist admit the colours are lovely but I did miss the matte mid-tone Naked shade from the original palette (wouldn't that have been the one to dupe in both, especially given the name??!) but happy with how it turned out just using the matte highlight to blend out the crease instead. More looks coming from this one for sure- so many pretty shimmery gold, bronze and taupe colours- perfect for daytime.


Have a beautiful day. What's your favourite palette?

NARS Habanera Daytime FOTD & EOTD

Haven't used a NARS duo in a while and thought the Habanera would be interesting. I do really like that blue/grey shade with brown eyes, but the purple shade from the duo doesn't quite come up the same colour on the eye as it look in the pan- more of a darker brown grey contouring shade. Would like to give that purple shade a try all over the lid rather than blending it out to see how that goes... Too much makeup, too little time!!


Hope you have a good one wherever you may be, Jodi xo

Models Prefer The Natural Look Palette FOTD EOTD & Swatches

Reached deep into the recesses of my eyeshadow palette collection and pulled out this inexpensive palette from Models Prefer. Less than $10 from Priceline from memory and still available I believe.


I love that they found a way to include a lip colour in a powder eyeshadow & blush palette without facilitating the "powder falls into creamy product mess" that I steer completely away from those combination palettes for.


A few mentionables of this palette though while I'm on the subject:
1) For such a warm looking palette, the eye and cheeks and lips are all pretty cool toned.
2) Are the lips really something you'd expect from a palette titled "Natural Look"??
3) no names on any shades means you can't look for what you like in an individual offering from Models Prefer or within their other palettes.


Pleased with how this turned out, and think the eyes aren't too much for the lip, but need to get "settled" into this bright lip for the day! Takes some getting used to.

What's your favourite combination palette?

Shimmery Rimmel Backstage EOTD & FOTD

Still loving the MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation. Trying to wear if every day to see if it breaks me out like so many other people have claimed. Set it today with the Laura Mercier loose powder and it's still going strong 6 hours on with one touch up that wasn't very necessary...

Bought this Rimmel Eyeshadow single in Backstage yesterday and couldn't wait to try it on a black base with black liner and not much else. Really happy with it.

What's your favourite shadow to use over a black base?

Hope you're having a Fantastic Friday, and have a beautiful weekend.

Pixi Nude Wardrobe Palette FOTD & EOTD with Gold & Pink

I wore the lovely Pixi eyeshadow palette that Amy sent me from the US today. Really like it and the colour range is very very nice. The gold pencil on the bottom really brightened the look and the pop of pink on the lips was a nice balance. Still really enjoying the MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation, but mixing it with Strobe Liquid Lotion and setting with Laura Mercier did not stand up to the straight up MSFF set with MAC Studio Fix + Foundation powder in terms of either coverage or longevity throughout the day. Trying something different with it tomorrow to see how it goes...

purple peach FOTD & EOTD

I was inspired by InsideOutBlack's latest New Years Eve Tutorial showing (what else?!) another purple peach eye combination. I love those 2 colours together so filmed the tutorial for this look also today. Turned out very very different than the inspiration, but loved this today.

First day wearing MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation and love it very much. Nothing like a full coverage that doesn't look like a mask. And I just can't get enough if Viva Glam Gaga 2 lippie every time I wear it- a gorgeous nude.

Hope your New Year 2012 is off to a flying start,

Jodi xo

Neutral Baby Pink FOTD

First time trying the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum and LOVE it at time of application. Really love that Loreal Infallible Eye Coliur in Hourglass Beige and even the Elizabeth Arden Eyeliner Pencil smudged out beautifully after a creamy application for a really nice, neutral definition. Love the combination today also of the Maybelline Peach Satin Mousse Blush and Benefit's Thrrrob cool-toned pink powder blush. The Maybelline colour on it's own is beautiful, but definitely needs a powder to help it last a little longer.


Wherever you find yourself on this first day of 2012, I wish you Health, Happiness and Prosperity for 2012, and a whole lot of reasons to feel thankful.
