Playing with Color featuring Lunatick Cosmetics

I made my first Lunatick Cosmetics purchase a few months ago and I have had such a fun time playing with them. Here are two looks I created with their AlieNEON glitter stacker.

 These colors just pop and are completely gorgeous. These are not subtle looks and that's part of what makes me love these colors. You just want to stop and stare! I used a white base to help the colors to stick and pop even more.

This first look I really wanted to showcase all these bright beautiful colors in a rainbow look that transitioned smoothly. The colors blend very easily and that made making this look a lot easier.

 This second look is similar to a look I've worn in the past, but updated with the colors from this stack and done a little more dramatically and with more focus on the blue color. This is something that as bold as it is, I would wear out or even to work.

If you're looking for makeup that's out of the ordinary or if you need horror and special effect makeup I highly recommend checking them out. They have very high quality and very good prices.

I'd love to see some of your looks if you've tried them out. Comment below!

Chinovi Cosmetics Review

I am super excited to write up this review. Vanessa of Chinovi Cosmetics sent out a coupon code for 50% off when the Seahawks won the SuperBowl and I took full advantage of that! I was immediately drawn to her OMG (Oh My Gods) collection for 2 reasons: First just look at those AMAZING colors and secondly I am a huge mythology geek! I also purchased Fairy since I was so drawn to it's amazing deep purple shade. I am obsessed with purples! How cute is Vanessa to include a hand written note (a rarity in today's world) and candy?! She's a girl after my heart.


Chinovi Cosmetics are all blended by hand and they have tons of vegan options and such a variety that there is something for everyone. On to the goodies!

From top to bottom, left to right: (1st row) Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Artemis, (2nd row) Athena, Dionysus, Hades, Hephaestus, (3rd row) Hera, Hermes, Poseidon, Zeus.
These swatches were done with no base or primer and you can see how well pigmented they are. This is a limited edition collection so get on this one while it's still around! There is such a good variety of colors here. I love that you have a full range from the lighter Aprodite, Athena and Hera to the darker shades like Hades, Hephaestus and Zeus. These apply beautifully and you can do so much with them.

Fairy is the other gorgeous shade I got (they have so many gorgeous colors I really had to restrain myself. At $5 each you really can't go wrong!) Fairy is a beautiful deep purple with hints of indigo and slightly teal blue sparkle. This is going to be a shade I'll be wearing quite often, it's just stunning.

They also gave me two samples in the colors Monsoon and Blame. Monsoon is a rich rusty red brown that I wouldn't normally pick, but instantly fell in love with! Blame is right up my alley, a gorgeous very pale green shimmer, nearly white,with a golden blue green shimmer. It's just stunning.

I highly recommend checking out their website, they have really beautiful products that apply so smoothly and have great pigmentation.

Love with Food February 2014

Love with Food is one of my favorite boxes to receive. It's as low as $8/box and every box donates a meal to a child in need. It's also a really great way to discover new and different food options. I also like that they include a list of everything you receive so you can know more about the products. They also provide a shop on their site so that if you love something, it's easy to find.

This is another subscription box that knows how to pack a lot of goodies into one small box. No room is wasted here!

Aside from the Beanitos I'm sure I'm going to love everything in this box, but I'm going to try it all. I love the idea of the snack olives in a sealed bag. I love green olives and this is an awesome on the go. The dark chocolate blueberries also seem like a great snack to keep in my purse for when my sweet tooth kicks in. Also those TCHO chocolates look amazing. They're made with coffee and I am all about that. On the same not those Gavottes crepe dentelle are intriguing. I've never heard of such a thing, but thin layers of crepe and chocolate are perfect in my book. Plus honey graham sticks and chocolate chip biscotti, it's like they're trying to fatten me up! It's a good thing I have quite the sweet tooth!

I love that they have coupons in their boxes as well since it's great for repurchases or trying new stuff. I also love that they added in a bag clip for my snacks. As I said before this is definitely one of my favorite boxes and I highly recommend checking them out.
