This week was a bit of a blogging fail for me. I have my reasons, though! I had a Chem exam, and then I had a lab proposal due and next week I have a Calc exam, which I've been studying for. I wish I could promise next week will be better, but I'd be lying: I have a Calc exam and a speech to do. And now for the post!
How incredible does this mascara make my lashes look? Gah, I love it! In any case, it's time for another installment in my and Robyn's Disney Collaboration. This week, I got to do Buzz Lightyear (yessss!!!) and Robyn got Tiger Lily from Peter Pan. Go forth and check it out--I can't wait to see what she did with it!
Toy Story was a movie that defined a generation. There, I said it! I really do think it's true: the Pixar-Disney collaboration really did start something amazing. And Buzz Lightyear? He was an absolutely iconic part of that. I freaking loved him, as a kid. I even had a little Buzz Lightyear doll of my own! I totally rushed out to see Toy Story 3 last year--it was awesome that Andy turned 18 and went off to college the same year I did. Buzz in Spanish mode? SO WINFUL.
The closeup shot of this doesn't look as metallic and silvery as it did in person. Scroll down to the full face picture and you'll get a better idea of what it's like.
- Geo Xtra Lenses in Forest Violet (Pinky purple lenses)
- Narrow domed blending brush (MAC 226)
- Yo finguhs. They're attached to your hand, usually.
- Urban Decay Lip Junkie Gloss in Perversion (Blackened purple)
- MAC Shadestick in Tundra (Silver cream shadow)
- MAC Paint Pot in Hyperviolet (Grape purple cream shadow)
- Inglot Eyeshadow #477 (Matte chartreuse with subtle gold sparkle)
- Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Pencil in Ransom (Blue purple)
- Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara (Black, volumizing, thickening, curling)
Put in lenses. Prime your eyes if you want (when I use Shadesticks and Paint Pots, I tend to skip it). Put Tundra all over the lid. Take Hyperviolet on your finger and pat it into the lid (all over). If you've got a really good brush for blending two creams together, you can go with that, but I don't and I find my finger sort of helps 'melt' the two colors together in this sort of situation. Take #477 on the 226 brush and blend it into the crease. Line the lower lashline with Ransom. Mascara!
Apply Perversion. I spread it to sheer it out.
Foundation as usual.
See what I mean about the two colors melting together? It wasn't really something that captured well on camera: Both colors were all over the lid, but when I used Hyperviolet on top of Tundra that way it was almost like a duochrome-y metallic where in certain light it looked more purple and in others it looked silver. Very cool. I suggest anyone who has the two products try blending them together right now, posthaste.
Also, these lenses? There will be review-age. Soon.
Remember to goo see Tiger Lily!
