Have you ever purchased something and wondered what was I thinking? I have no idea what on earth possessed me to get all this Rock & Republic make-up on Hautelook. I spent so much and don't even need it...eeks! I am a true make-up novice but thought I would attempt to show you what I bought. No shots of me actually wearing it, that would be disastrous! I'm a creature of habit so even though I have all this new make-up to try, I always reach for my cheap make-up that I am used to. Plus, these are so pretty that I don't want to use them!
Eyeshadow colors from left to right:
Snakeskin, Affair, Lost and Diffused
Here is what each color looks like on my hand.
Snakeskin- This has a hint of green in it so I'm not sure how this will work with my brown/neutral color scheme.
Affair- I usually use this light color to blend in with my brown eyeshadows but this one has a glittery sheen to it so probably not something I would wear to work. Maybe on the weekends?
Lost- This is my favorite color out of the 4. It's more of a matte finish which I prefer and is work appropriate.
Diffused- I really like this color too, it's similar to most of the brown eyeshadows that I typically use.
This blush was gifted to me from Vicky at VickysFashion. She is so sweet! She heard I didn't have any and graciously sent me one and I love it! The whole reason why I was on Hautelook looking at R & R makeup was in hopes that they had blush on sale. Unfortunately the ticking clock when you add items to your card somehow tricked and convinced me that I need all this other stuff:(
I have tried this blush and one swipe literally transforms my blah face into somewhat alive. You have to be very careful because it goes on so well that you don't want to do too much otherwise you will look like a clown.
I tried this once and I think it's the right color for me. It may be a bit too light when I am tan but since I have my winter Asian skin color, it goes on nicely and lasts through-out the day.
Bronzer/Highlighter in PENTHOUSE.
I attempted to use this once already and it goes on pretty nicely. I am afraid to use too much so I can't really tell if it makes that big of a difference.
I had no idea I got the bronzer w/brush package...no wonder why it was so insanely expensive! It even comes with a cute little pouch. I am sucker for pretty packaging...hehehe. It's almost too pretty and too expensive to even take out of the box!
**If you are interested in purchasing any of the above except for the blush and powder, please let me know!**
Has anyone tried the eyeshadow, powder or bronzer? I would love to hear your thoughts!
