Vampiress Beauty Randomness 8

Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in 240 Aqua Sparkle and 280 Pink Impact.
While these aren't as creamy as the Urban Decay or Gosh liners, I think they're pretty good.
They are quite pigmented and don't fade away. They also come with a tip sharper to get a nice point at the edge as they are the twist ups, also with a nice soft rubber smudge tool.

Top to Bottom
Aqua Sparkle- Yes an Aquamarine blue with tiniest sparkle.
Pink Impact- A matte medium rose pink

Urban Decay
Mini Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy- Which I got in part of their Hall Of Fame set.
It's adorably cute, perfect size for a small clutch bag. The shade has the same name as their eyeshadow which is infested with sparkle, so I thought this lipstick would be. It actually isn't, it has very little, extremely sheer and you do need to layer a load.
I think it would be a prettier colour if it had a little more sparkle and more pigment.
So I guess I will not be adding the full size to my wishlist.
I'd describe this as a nude sheer caramel with pink undertones and slight sparkle.

Next are my two staples before bedtime that I actually weirdly enough finished at the same time.
They are..
Clinique All About Eyes Rich- Which I really do notice the difference in my dark shadows when I stop using it for a while.
Aldi Siana Nourishing Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream with Retinol Complex and Co-enyzme Q10- Yes I'm 20 but it's never too early to start protecting yourself from those wrinkles, especially with this wonder cream that's been featured in the newspapers and is only £1.99!

NOTD- Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours Metal Shine in 4 Planet Pink- Which is a rich metallic medium pink. Sorry for the nails, I know they're horrid. Most of my nails broke so I decided to cut them all off and start again....oh well. :(

Little Everyday Minerals Haul

So really happy with my little EDM haul!
I ordered
Semi-Matte Base (foundation) in Fair Neutral for my backup stash, as it's my holy grail and I'd be absolutely lost without it.
Lips in Monster Movie - from their lovely fairly new lip colour range.
Two samples of Lucent Powder in Wet Sand and Pearl Sunlight.

Monster Movie- Yes I love the name and that's also the reason why I purchased it!
EDM describe this as a 'super wearable natural mocha shade with pink accents' which is spot on!
I don't have too many browny lip tones in my collection so this was another reason.
It really remind me of the sexy early 90's but with a modern twist.
The colour is fairy sheer but the pigmentation can really easily be built up and leaves a nice sheen, not overly glossy and the texture is very light so you can barely feel it on your lips.
No scent or horrid taste either
Overall I'm very impressed.

Lucent Powders in Pearl Sunlight (left) and Wet Sand (right)- Yes I applied them way too thick on the swatches so they show up over my pale skin.
They add a luminous glow to your skin, so is perfect for a finishing touch to your makeup.
Will need to get a full size with my next order. I'm pretty much obsessed with highlighters, I love glow!

Quick MAC Club EOTD

So I tried to do this in different angles to show the colour off as best as I can, the application isn't as good...I was rushed this morning!

Shadows Used- MAC Club, MAC Phloof!, Sleek Nightlife and Bloom Eskimo

MAC Club Eyeshadow

Now this one looks like a boring everyday shade which it isn't the slightest. It's extremely hard to capture the uniqueness of it.
MAC's description of this is a 'Muted reddish brown duochrome* with green opalescent shimmer (Satin)' Which I think is very accurate. It's like a grey dull brown has been spiced up in a new light. It can look cool in one light but warm in another, with the light mermaid green flashing in certain angles. The overall finish is pearl like. I also think it's very distinctive, I can usually tell if someone is wearing it in an eye look without looking at what they've used.
The texture is very soft and pigmented. It's also in their permanent line and will hopefully never be discontinued.

I really need to do a EOTD to hopefully show it up better.
How do you feel about MAC Club? Want to try it, love it or hate it?

No7 Wild Volume Lipstick in Forever Cherry

I was really excited to try this and I had a coupon for 1000 points on my Boots card, so I decided to pick one up and the shade that instantly caught my eye was 'Forever Cherry' it's the most gorgeous vivid, bright and intense milky lollipop red with pink undertones.
The packaging is the same as their Stay Perfect lipstick but the Wild Volumes are blue. :)
The texture is nice and creamy with slight gloss, this one is extremely pigmented which I'm very happy about. Now for what else I love about this lipstick is the fact that it has a scent which is like yummy caramel, the other lipsticks in the No7 line don't have any scent whatsoever.
As the for the volume, I didn't really see any. However it does have a menthol cooling and sensation which is quite nice. :)
The longevity is quite good too and much more longer lasting then their Moisture Drench range.
I'm really happy with this lippie and do plan on getting more with my £5.00 off No7 vouchers.
These retail at £9.50 but I really do think these are worth it.
Thumbs up on Wild Volume!

Now for the swatches they're less pink in real life and definitely more brighter.

Small Boots Haul

Just a recent small haul.

No7 Opulence Highlighter- Which is a beautiful subtle gold that gives an amazing glow. Obvious frosty shimmering overlay and gone within one swipe and a shame though as most overlays are intense and just plain gorgeous. The packaging is lovely I must say, all gold with a descent mirror inside, looks like something Royalty would have. :)

No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow in 16 Electric Purple- A lovely matte medium cool toned purple, really lovely. The colour in the pictures are darker and brighter in real life.

Barry M
Dazzle Dusts.....more for my collection. :)

90 Pearly Mauve- A nice Lilac like purple with pink iridescence.

96 Gold- Bright full blasted mustard new gold.

Glitter Zombie EOTD

^This is why I named part of the title 'Zombie' but it shows off the colour and style quite well. :)
VampiressDoll also needs to tweeze the brows again.

Shadows Used- La Femme Palette Number 2 (Greens), Urban Decay Last Call, Cover Girl Shimmering Onyx, Bloom Eskimo and Barry M Glitter Liquid Eyeliner 07 Gold.

La Femme Palette & LOTD

Yes, I went and got the greens too which is number '2' and yet again it's bursting with pigment.
You can see my review for the La Femme palette here in number '4'

LOTD- MAC Tinted Lipglass in Desire which is another favourite, it's very sexy and vampy.
MAC describe this as a 'Lusty purpled berry (Cream)' which is a lovely description I must say!
It has sort of a brownish undertone but with a added cranberry depth. It is very easy to wear shade in my opinion and it's part of their permanent line, yay!

Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion

So I've been really excited to try this out, as I love their Eye Primer so much to the fact that I'd never wear a shadow without it. I know they have also released a bunch of face primers too, but I'm not really interested as my routine and wear has no need for it

Anyway I'm in love with the packaging which is ultra slim but slightly weighty tube with a little fancy kick.
The actual product itself is very much a high quality too. It applies a invisible layer of something you can barely feel till you press your lips together and you can feel pure silk, without it being balmy or feeling like any other lip product at all. Chapped lips and slight flaking, this lip primer will give a smooth perfected surface with a little filling in the natural cracks of your lips, so be prepared for your lipstick going on a different way, there won't be any feathering whatsoever.
The wear? Well it certainly extends some more time but it really does depend on what formula your lip colour is. Please don't expect it to be like the Eye Primer as it won't be.
All in all really this is to make your favourite lip colour look it's best!
It comes with a lovely SPF15 and Vitamins A, C and E. So healthy for your lips too. It also has a very slight pleasing scent of cinnamon and doesn't taste.
This is a thumbs up for me, Urban Decay did well and I could definitely see myself using this a whole lot! Especially with my complaint of flaking chappy lips.

Just to add who's excited about their new Alice In Wonderland palette? I can't wait for it to come over to the UK.

Pinked Out Black

I love pink when it's paired with a certain colour, which gives it a lot of edge.
Shadows Used- Barry M Berry Pink, Urban Decay (from Ammo palette) Polyester Bride, Oil Slick.

Lips-Avon Rainkissed Rose lipstick & Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Sophie.
I actually found out recently that Rainkissed Rose hasn't disappeared and now comes under the name Country Rose, so happy about that as I love this pink and you can see a lip swatch on it's own from an earlier blog post here.

NOTD- Maybelline Express Finish in Tulip Take-Off which is a really lovely fast drying polish.
A tiny little brighter in real life as this was taken in bad lightning, sorry. :(
