Ambrosia Cosmetics Pinks & Orange Matte Eye-shadows #374, 424, 475, 774


Moving onto the matte pinks and oranges from my first trip to Ambrosia Cosmetics. Be sure to check out the blues and purples or yellows and greens if these are your colours. Ever since I was a little girl the colour pink was my favorite and this stuck with me until now. Of course I have branched out and from time to time I have different favourite colours. My nieces seem to have picked up on the I-Love-Pink colour phase too!  Now onto my story. 
 Creative colour #475 is Havana Cream. This is a peachy brown which is a colour almost like my skin tone! The colour is matte but I could detect small shimmer particles in it, just a few though. It blends very smoothly and if you have a skin tone like mine it would work great as a blending out colour. 
 
Creative colour #424 is Serene Sunset. This is a bright orange at least in the pan. It’s a very soft colour once applied, even after trying to pack it on. I actually prefer the soft colour but of course most times you want the colour that appears in the pan to be translated onto the makeup application. There are a few shimmer particles within the matte orange colour. 
 
Creative colour# 774 is Butterfly Wings. This is a bright fuchsia, again mostly in the pan. Not pigmented for me when applied. 
 
Creative colour# 374 is Blushing bride is a soft baby pink. I was disappointed with this one since it looked very pale, closing in on a white than the beautiful pink in the pan. 
 
Beside the fact that I found a blending out colour for my skin tone I wasn’t at all impressed with this bunch. Just to note all the swatches were done without any primer underneath so this is just the pure colour showing through. I’m still on the hunt for some pigmented pinks!

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
