Playing with colors ^_^

Hello everyone! It's a great day today because it is very sunny but not too hot..I hope everyone will have a great day ^_^

Me and my sis had the urge to play last night with my Coastal Scents 88 matte eyeshadow palette. We chose 2 rainbow eyes tutorial from Youtube to copy and this is what we came up with..yeah she have different makeup for each eye haha :)

HER LEFT eye makeup is from this tutorial by geisha1254..she also used her CS 88 palette so we tried to match the shades she used..I think we did a pretty good job in finding the exact match of the shades lol :)
HER RIGHT eye makeup is from this tutorial by MissChievous..she used different products and the CS shadows are not as vibrant..but we found some close shade match of what she used and I think we came close :)

My sister is the one applying the colors and I helped in blending and giving her the makeups she needs (yup! I'm the assistant in this project haha)..I'm also the photographer..I don't have any photography skills so these shots are to my best of ability already haha :)
Just having fun with the camera! If you want to see more pictures of my sister, you can chek out her blog here..she put up all of her pictures there :)


Here's a shot of her promoting her new product hehe ^_^
That's Ellana Minerals new packaging for their lip products (moisturizing lip colors and lip balms)..it contains the same amount of product and it still retails at Php150. They also released a couple of new shades and this is one of them.
Lady Love is a pretty light pink color. I think this is perfect for a natural look or to pair with dark eye makeup.
Here's my review:
PROS
- non drying to the lips..it has moisturizing properties
- affordable and accessible to buy
- sanitary - you don't need to dip your finger in the pot anymore in order to get the product
- travel friendly - the tube is a slim,plastic tube so it can easily fit in any size of purse
CONS
- it's not as pigmented as the ones in the pot..I need to layer this to have a decent shade on my lips
- it has a noticeable mint to it..i think the original one don't have any mint on their moisturizing lip colors
- this worked and feel the same as my Bare Naturals lip tints
OVER-ALL RATING: 4/5 . I like the new packaging because it'smore sanitary but I love the quality of the original one better..I hope the other shades are more pigmented than this one.
WILL I RE-PURCHASE? hmm I'm not yet sure..probably..if there's a new shade that I like to get :)
WHERE TO PURCHASE: you can purchase any Ellana Mineral products at www.itzmei.multiply.com
Thank you for dropping by! and Have a nice day everyone! ^__^
