Warm and Cozy Du Jour 12.29.09

The makeup collection...not the weather. it is FREEZING in New York City right now. Frigid.

I picked up a few pcs form the Warm and Cozy collection that just came out. I was very drawn to this collection because I love and mainly only wear neutrals. I don't do bright colors on my eyes. I didnt recieve them all yet, I am still waiting on Feelin Good Tinted Lip Conditioner, 2N lipgloss and the grapefruit essential oil.

I did get the Shadesticks in Relaxed and Cuddle and the MSF in By Candlelight. Even though I swore I wouldn't get anymore shadesticks because I never use them. These really called out to me, I LOVE the color of Cuddle, it is almost like Vanilla Pigment in a stick form, a light pale white with a flash of gold. It is gorgeous as a highlight and inner corner. I am very pleased with Relaxed as well. It is a very easy brown to wear and creates a VERY quick sultry look. Also great for a smoky look or a clean simple liner.

Obviously, I am in love with the MSF. I was actually going to skip it because it looks sort of Similar to Porcelain Pink but I am glad I didn't. It is WAY smoother and way more pigmented. There is no glitter, just a sheen/ shimmer. I would describe this color as rose gold. It is BEAUTIFUL. I love it on my cheekbones.


quick swatching...
I did a quick look using these colors this morning, although on my blackberry you cant really see the colors...go figure. Anyway, it looked great and it was a really quick sultry eye JUST the shade sticks and a black eyeliner. I quickly lined around the ENTIRE eye with "Relaxed" and put "Cuddle" on inner tear duct and under brow bone. Black Liner and Black Mascara. By Candlelight on cheekbones and DONE!

Review to come on the missing lip conditioner, lipglass and oils.
What did you pick up? What are your thoughts?

  6. Love the quick look you created with the shadesticks. Hmmm, you may have convinced me to go pick one up. I did get the Mulled Cider eyeshadow (a warm brownish red cocoa) from this collection already though. Love it!

  10. Belle-
    I have the same problem with reds and tend to avoid coppers for that reason. I use the reddish color in the crease to smoke out the dark gray or black for a smoky eye. Not just by itself. That would be scary!

  13. OMG I love your hair! The color is amazing! And I love what you did with your eyes..I too think 'cuddle' shadestick is amazing..I am debating on whether to pick it up or not same with 'warm me up' lipstick but I am thinking of going back blonde and I don't think it would look good when I'm blonde...anyway great haul!!

  15. Awesome choices! I too told myself that I was going to pass on the shadesticks but Nurture s/s is calling me. I have ordered By Candlelight MSF and cannot wait to get it. I'm also going to order Modelette e/s, Warm Me Up lipstick and maybe Feeling Dreamy l/g.

  16. I love your FOTD. Bonus that it was quick too.

    I got 2N l/g (really wanted this after missing it the first time round) and Relaxed shadestick. I only ever had Sharkskin and never used it either (so swapped it) but my fave e/s colours is bronze/brown so Relaxed is perfect. I'm thinking of getting another cos I can see myself using it so much - even as an eye base. Will defo have another look at the MSF! It looks so pretty on you...thanks for the post!

  17. Aleksis, really? I love how you look as a brunette, not that you werent gorg as a blonde but the brunette looks SO sultry on you. Are you sick of it? Warm me up was kinda eh to me! Cuddle will be great for blondes or brunettes, its a perfect highlight!
