Eye Shadow Review And FOTD

Hey Pumps and Gloss-ers,

Please add Purely Cosmetics to my list of favorite brands.

Purely Cosmetics is a mineral cosmetics company based in California.  The owner, Robyn, is a mentch (just for you, Robyn).  😉 She sent me a few samples of the new, limited edition Cream To Powder Shadows.  I absolutely love them.  The shadows are solid, yet soft.  The shadow has staying power and highly blendable. Some have compared it to MAC’s Paint Pots, but I think the Cream To Powder Shadows are better than Paint Pots *gasp* and I love Paint Pot as a shadow base, but not as shadow. The shadows glide on the eyelid with no streaking and the color payoff is strong.  I tell you, I am in love.

In the FOTD below, I used the Cream to Powder shadow as base and shadow.

I created this look for church, a very soft and sassy look.  *Yes, you can be slightly sassy for church* lol

  • NYX Concealer in Nutmeg

    Hey girl, yesterday I was pleasantly surprised with a door bell ring. Who was it I asked to myself lol. It was Fed Ex and I didnt know the name on the box. Opened the box and I had all the latest collections from M.A.C. all the latest lines coming out this fall and for the holidays!

    What a pleasant surprise! I always forget that they send me things every couple of months lol. Im loving the Emanuel Ungaro limited collection(sold only at Nordstroms), and the Cremesheen line& Mineralize(real shimmery).

    Blue always looks great on brown eyes. It really makes them pop! You did a great job!

    @kia I didnt know you became a Paint Pot fan. *Noticed on Twitter* I am glad you are apart of the PP fan club. I think the matte pots work better as shadows. Anyhoo, u will be pleased with the CTPs.

    @seymone and @marisol. Thanks. Barry M is definitely worth the hassle of ordering and waiting for the shipment.
