FOTD Friday: Purples & Pinks


Happy Friday, family!

I am literally bouncing off of the walls today because well…it’s the weekend! Tomorrow I get my locs installed by my wonderful and beautiful loctician. I am tracking the journey to locs at my hair blog: The Crowned Chronicles. The “crown” would be my hair. Yes, another blog..I know. What can I say? I love blogging! Of course I will do mini hair-updates here at Clumps of Mascara. Stay tuned!

So in make-up news…there have been soooo many holiday sales going on in the cosmetic world. But the BEST one I’ve stumbled across is Sephora’s spend $35 and get $15 code. Whaaaat!! That’s amazing! Take that little gift card that I had plus this deal and I was one happy lady. I roamed Sephora trying to decide between something from Philosophy and Tarte. And then I strolled past NARS again….NARS, how I love thee, let me count the ways. And then I saw that Make Up For Ever shadow that I have been crushing on forever. Introducing…

(left) NARS Caravaggio eyeshadow-$32
(right) Make Up For Ever #92 eyeshadow-$19

I doubt I would have ever purchased these shadows so freely at their regular prices. I mean, really…$19, MUFE? However….when I tell you that MUFE matte purple is the BEST color I have ever purchased….I ain’t lying! I mean…I have no words for this shadow. It is THAT amazing. I just…wow. NARS Carvaggio duo, I find has the perfect deep pink and medium purple. They work beautiful together and MUFE 92 only adds a bit of magic to the duo. I am loviiiin’ these purchases.

Check out the look:

[NOTE: The skin has been bare all week. Not even a dash of blush. I've been trying to keep as many products of it as possible to clear up the little break-out I have on my left cheek.]

EYES:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Make Up For Ever #92 eyeshadow
NARS Caravaggio eyeshadow
Clinique Almost Peach eyeshadow (highlight)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye liner in Electric
Clinique Quickliner for Eyes in Navy
Rimmel ‘Glam Eyes mascara

FACE:
Not a thang, mon!

LIPS:
MAC Nightmoth lip liner
MAC Hot ‘N Saucy Tendertone



What do you think? I am finding these colors extremely wearable! It was a pleasure playing with MUFE shadows for the first time and if those babies weren’t so darn expensive, I would love to invest in more. And I will always have a weak spot for NARS. *sigh*

Do you have any favorite pinks and purples? Tell me!!

Don’t forget to stick your hand in the Honey Pot to snag $130 worth of products from Rx for Brown Skin! Hop to it! This would make a wonderful gift!

Have a wonderful weekend, family!

Stay beautiful,
