I decided to break into my Lunasol samples and the Maquillage GR366 palette. I've used the blush (11) once already and I kept forgetting I had it. The Lunasol base is the Creamy Makeup Base. Please refer back to this post for swatches.
As soon as I got home, I washed my face and did a quick tutorial for a mid-week blog perk haha. I think Tim got frustrated because I was busy with my makeup and snapping pictures of myself while he made dinner haha.
I didn't look carefully when I was picking out this Maquillage blush. I should have picked something with a lighter pink. The rosey pink blush is quite pigmented and it was easy to over apply, other than that, I really like the other shades in this combo. The good thing is the fact that there's a contour shade, highlighter and the blush in one compact. It makes one less item to stick into my small cluttered box. The downside is each color is very small so it makes sticking the brushes in quite annoying. I forgot to take swatches of these palettes, but I'll do so next time when I remember.
For my eyes, I used the tutorial from the Maquillage website. The colors are quite pigmented, especially the gray and white highlighter shade on the top right hand corner. I felt that blending the gray over the mint green shade was a bit difficult. Since it was so pigmented, it was easy to over apply or apply it unevenly. It'll take some practice. This also goes for the other palette I have GY865 which I absolutely adore. Even though it's a brown palette, the way the colors come out, it gives a glam kinda natural look, does that make sense? It's like a brown/natural look you would see in a Vivi magazine. I'll talk more when I do an FOTD with it.
Since I don't have access to a Sephora, I'm thinking of trying the Laneige Brow Shaping Kit. It's similar to the brow kit that Sephora offers. Stay tuned!....for my bangs to grow out and me doing my brows for the first time...hahahaha.... I've only got them professionally done twice and the other times I pluck the stray hairs.
