Maybelline Limited Edition Fall 2012 Scene On the Runway

'ELLO READERS! So it's time again for a new blog post! Today, it's all about Maybelline's Limited Edition (LE) Scene On the Runway for this fall =]
This collection is definitely the talk of all the beauty blogs and Youtube and I am excited to have gotten to purchase some of the products for myself! The only thing that I am sad about is that I STILL haven't seen the new Color Tattoos in ANY of the stores near me. Hopefully, they will be in eventually and I can do a blog post/video about them as well.
This post is just going to be pictures of the products. If you want swatches, you can watch the video I did which I will post below!

Cozy Cashmere
 So the first product is an Eyestudio Quad in Cozy Cashmere. It contains 2 shimmery colors and two matte colors. The two matte colors are AWESOME neutrals, one in a burnt orange and the last one is a medium-tone brown. The shimmery colors are a bright VERY shimmery, pale gold and a DEEP brown with gold particles. That medium-tone looking gold color is actually another brown in DISGUISE! Just so you know!  
Olive Martini
 Olive Martini is SO GORGEOUS! Definitely my favorite of my purchases! This quad contains a pale vanilla with shimmer, a light green with shimmer, a multi-dimension color with shimmer of brown, green, and gold =], and the last color is a deep shimmery sienna color!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! All the colors in the quads are VERY pigmented in Olive Martini AND Cozy Cashmere! I would definitely try and buy at least ONE of these amazing quads!
Touch of Light: Luminizing Face Glow
 Ok, next is the new Luminizing Face Glow which I am slowly but surely FALLING in love with! If you like glowly skin, you will LOVE this product! It gives a WONDERFUL golden glow to the skin! And it DOES not take a lot of product for it to show up on the skin! I love that because as a WOC some products just REFUSE to show up on us =[ but NOT this product!

Left to Right: Strike A Rose, Brown to Earth, In Style Sienna
Ok, lastly, are the three lipsticks I purchased! I got Strike a Rose, Brown to Earth, and In Style Sienna. Ok, first thing is that ALL of these colors are FROSTY shimmery finishes! If you HATE the FROST do NOT get these! For me, I normally do not like frosty, but if the COLOR sells me, then I will wear it =]
Strike A Rose is a light, but not BRIGHT frosty rose color. Brown to Earth is a frosty NUDE brown. It is a PERFECT nude for me if you IGNORE the frost, and In Style Sienna is a DEEP sienna brown with GREEN  shimmery in it O.o. Yes, I was GREEN shimmer which I think is SO awesome. It does not show up as green on the lips, but just as some nice shimmer.

So if you have any questions about these products, leave me a COMMENT! And below is the accompanying video I did for these products with the swatches! ENJOY!

GEO Magic Color Lens XCH-624 aka Super Nudy Brown

HELLO ALL! I am back again and it's not 3 months later!
Today, I want to write a LITTLE about my new Circle Lenses. I know, I know, these are NOT from the doctor! But I have been wearing contact lenses since I was 17 years old and I know how to care for them and all what NOT to do.

So I purchased my lenses from YesStyle.com which is an Asian based company. The lenses I purchased have a long catalog name of GEO Magic Color Lens XCH-624 or just XCH-624, but in laments terms, they can be found under Super Nudy Brown. 

More Circle Lens STATS
Lens diameter: 14.8mm
Base curve radius: 8.4mm-8.6mm
Center Thickness: 0.04mm - 0.13mm
Water Content: 38% - 42%

These are the lenses after I took them out of their glass vials and placed in the contact lens case (with FRESH clean solution) that was given free with the contacts in the package from YesStyle. Shipping was SUPER fast considering it came ALL the way from Asia and got to me in 6 days =]
I purchased these lenses for my Radical Edward cosplay because they made my eyes BIGGER and I was hoping REALLY golden, but they are NOT as bright as I hope they would be in real life. They are still nice lenses though.

So here are some pictures of what the lenses look like in different light settings

It did take til the THIRD time putting these contacts in that BOTH eyes became comfortable in wearing them and NOW, I can just pop them in and they feel like my regular contacts and they actually DON'T dry out as fast as my ACTUAL PRESCRIPTION ones, but that's just my eyes. 

I do NOT wear these contacts for no more than EIGHT hours, that's just a rule that I use that works best for me.

All in all, I LOVE my lenses! It states that they can be used up to a year after opening.....
YEAH, I don't think they will last that long. Like I stated before up top, I got these lenses for my cosplay and most likely after the convention, they may be finding themselves tossed down the PORCELAIN ride!
But anyway, if you have any questions, leave them down below and I also made a video on my lenses and you can see how I opened the vial. There's SKILL involved!

Thanks for reading everybody!!!!
