NK HD Questions for Jamie @ Rural Glamour!!

Monday, November 09, 2009

Question #1 from my girl, Elle:)....

"I saw the Nicka K shadows at my local BSS...they all looked to tempting, which ones do you recommend to start?"

I would recommend my first five colors that got me hooked!!!

Top row:#3008, #3037 #3020
Bottom row:#3021 and #3023

The black and the vanilla colors are good basics( brow bone color and the black as a darkener in the outer corner or an eyeliner). The jewel colors are basic primary colors that can be worn alone or in a look...

Question #2: Which colors of the Nicka K HD eyeshadow would you recommend for a neutral, everyday look?

I recommend the six neutral colors I own...( above) top row: #3008, #3037, and #3009 bottom row: #3018, #3016 and #3005

Here's a neutral look I created with #3008, #3016 and #3009.....

I did #3009 from the inner corner to the mid-lid, #3016 from the mid-lid to the outer corner into the crease and blended the #3008 onto the brown bone down into the crease...

Any NK HD questions? Let me know!


****Disclaimer: I don't work for NK. I don't own all the NK HD colors...yet:)****

N.O.T.D. UrbanVibe Midnight....

Last week, I ventured into Wet Seal and ran upon some of their makeup that was now maked down to $1 a piece. I picked up a couple of things and one of the nail colors I picked up was Urban Vibe Midnight.

I played around with it, Milani Day Dreaming( the gray color) and some nail design....Fun...Midnight is three coats for full color and holds up well...interesting.:)

Review: Maybelline New York Blissfully Blue Trio....

Happy Monday!!

I picked up another one of those Maybelline Popmistic Trios...this one in Blissfully Blue...

The blue shade in the trio is like nothing I own. Initially, I thought it to be like MAC Blue pigment, but after swatching the two together it was not. The color has to be builded in order to get the intensity in the trio, which was disappointing....

The taupe-gray 'crease' color was a bit of failure too...it blended too well in the blue, and wasn't dark as it looks in the trio either...ehh....

The silver brow bone color was the worst. Spotty texture, like it was old or something. Maybelline could've left that color out!

But...the weird part is that the look wasn't all that bad...I added a blue line at the top and it looked good.lol! Three wrongs make a right???? Okay, Maybelline.
