Look of the Day w/Sugarpill! Also a Smashbox dupe!

Lid & Crease -
    Sugarpill Palette "Burning Heart"
  •     Shadow "ButterCupcake"
  •     Shadow "Poison Plum"
    Sugarpill Palette "SweetHeart"
  •     Shadow "Midori"
    Urban Decay Naked Palette:
  • Shadows "Creep" & "Gunmetal"

    • Inglot Shadow Matte-354, BareEscentuals bareMinerals glimmer in "Seashell"
    • Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Gel Creamliner 
    • L' Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black 
    • Milani Brow Fix Brow Kit in "01 Light"
    • Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara as a brow gel.
    •  Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer in "Light"
    • L'Oreal Bare Naturale Foundation powder in "Light Ivory 458"
    • NYX Mosaic Powder in "06 Rosey"
    • Elizabeth Arden cheekcolor in "SunBlush"
    • Maybelline Mineral Power Illuminator in "nude"
    • No7 HighLights Illuminating Lotion 
    • Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in "900B Pink Suga"
    • N.Y.C. Liquid Lip Shine in "555 Iced Orchid"

    "Buttercupcake" layered over "Midori" with "Poison Plum" in the crease to start. 
    I blended "Poison Plum" into the upper crease closer to my brow bone with a clean makeup brush! 
    Then I added Urban Decay's "Gunmetal" in the crease, blend once more with a clean makeup brush. 
    I wanted more depth, so I decided that I'd add a little "Creep" into the mix. 
    Highlighted my browbone with the Inglot 354 matte shadow, and added a little "Seashell" for shimmer just at my brow's arch! 

    Dupe time :D
    The other day my wonderful mother passed on to me a Smashbox lip gloss because the color just wasn't striking her fancy for her usual day to day look. Of course I said yes I'll be happy to try it for myself! As I was putting it away in my purse, I realized it matched my gloss already placed in my makeup bag!  

    N.Y.C's Liquid Lip Shine in "555 Iced Orchid" is on the left & Smashbox's Lip Ehancing Gloss - True Color in "Fame" is on the right! The slight difference would be in the faint gold shimmer of the N.Y.C gloss. The Smashbox "Fame" appears to have shimmer in the tube, but really transfers onto the lips in more of a cream finish. However, it's still a pretty good dupe! Instead of handing over $18 for one gloss you can shell out $2.25-2.50 for the N.Y.C. brand & still look just as good :)


    1. You're so beautiful and the makeup is amazing!! :)

    2. beautiful makeup!!! who says we have to be afraid of color :))

    3. Nice gradation! Like the lip gloss! If I were you, I would use a bit more darker color for eyebrows;) Maybe you could use brow mascara if you wanted to try out? ;) ThanX! xx

    4. My hair isn't black, so any darker it might look a little off!
