Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Part 2 and My Saturday Adventures

Hello hello again!

Has everyone had a lovely Saturday or Sunday, depending on what part of the world you’re all at? I’ve had a fantastic Saturday, but more about that later. First let me get to the cream pots. Well not to my surprise there was some creasing…

Tenacious-Teal-and-Fierce-and-Fiery

Tenacious Teal Creases

If you look at my right eye (the left on here) you see significant creasing with Tenacious Teal, honestly the formula for the shimmery colors seems less capable than the matte. As you see the Fierce and Tangy lasted and honestly in person it’s beautiful. The picture doesn’t do it justice. I say for the cost it’s fine and if you’re willing to retouch then all the better. Just dab and reapply. However, for a longer day or a night out I would stick to Benefit or MAC.

Swatches

I have taken a picture of the colors I got so you can see how much better the matte color applies than that with shimmer. I would definitely invest in the matte over the shimmer OR get the more taupe/bronze tones for bronzer or skin shimmer. Glitter always lasts, it’s the color that doesn’t so much so. I would also try primer, but like I said, you get what you pay for and makeup that is $6 – 8 vs $18 – 20 has to do with formula and place of production. A better formula will always cost more to make along with other things that go into the business side of things. Has anyone else tried them? What has been your experience?

Look it’s me!

Me Inside the Pantages Theater

I went to the theater to see Wicked today! Seriously SERIOUSLY, go see it if it’s in your town. It’s hilarious, sad and an amazing story. I absolutely loved it and let me tell you the theater was PACKED! Super amazing cast that was here in LA. For those of you here in LA if you didn’t go you must see it if it comes back or go somewhere else to see it, as tomorrow is it’s last day.

I want to give a shout out to Heartbreaker Clothing, because they gave me this dress after I did a Tumblr contest review for them awhile back. They make their clothes to order and the fit as well as quality are both amazing. Two of my favorite and most complimented dresses are from this company, I love them.

What I don’t love is parking signs like this in Hollywood:

Tricksters

So you’re driving and what do you see “$5 parking” since it’s matinee time, you think it’s true. In downtown LA parking goes down to $3 at some points [flat rate] ah but not here no….. if you pay attention to the picture below it says “for the first 30 minutes $15 flat rate.” It’s misleading, why don’t they say it’s $15 it’s not like people won’t still park there, I mean there isn’t much of a choice to begin with! Grrr!!! When we got out instead of $5 it said $10 and instead of $15 it said $20. Rant Over! *snickers*

Next couples of posts will be on brushes and a lip treatment I buy at Sephora, that’s “for men,” which confuses me, but I’ll tell ya why when I come to it.

Have an amazing rest of the weekend my lovelies.

    Aww it’s a shame about the Tenacious Teal creasing! *sad face* But the Fierce and Tangy looks pretty good. Do you think if you used the teal as the base colour with the orange on top, it may work better?

    You need to test using various bases too and see if that makes a difference. I’ve been using the NYX primer, just like UD except cheaper, score!
