Eye Makeup InspirationJul, 28
Hello my lovely licornes ~ I wasn´t at work today because of the small amount of actual work for us part-timers, so I had a plenty of time to think about a new eye makeup inspiration. When I was thinking about the makeup´s concept I decided to use my new products from Beautybigbang.com which I got a few weeks ago. I ordered two creamy eyeshadows in a blue and pink colour, rhinestones for a nail art and a pink eyeshadow pencil. In the end it became a kind of an alien makeup which a named CHroMa X. I usually give names to my makeup creations by a feeling, by something which come on my mind firstly :)

On the each side of the face I used a different colour. Blue one I used on a left one and pink one I used for a right one. I made a tear or a drop shape which end on a lower part of a jawline. In the inner corners of the eyes, above the eyebrows, on cheeks and on the each side of a mouth I placed the rhinestones with a holographic effect.
Glitter gel eyeshadow have a creamy consistency thanks to which are a bit thicker. Spreading them is really easy and when applying they provide a light cooling effect. They have a fine sweet scent, glitters in themselves and they also provide a great mettalic effect. Pigmentation is amazing, but holding time isn´t at all. Because of the fact they´re the creamy ones, I also fixed them with an eyeshadow and I used a base underneath too. But they kept stamping on the upper lid and created empty spots in a crease. I tried to use another layer of the eyeshadow but it didn´t help at all. I´m really not satisfied with them. Small applicator is included in a packaging.
But I have to admit that they look really pretty!
Another product included in the package was a shimmer eyeshadow pencil which I chose in a pink colour. Even in this case I was expecting a bit too much of it. Colour is a pretty one but pigmentation is very poor. I also tried to re-apply it a few times but nothing changed. In the end this eyeshadow is the same as the ones above - after a while it started to stamp on the upper lid and a few empty spots appeared again. Pencil doesn´t have any scent and it provides a fine shine.
The last product I ordered are the clear rhinestones with a holographic effect. Even I don´t use a nail polish, especially on my fingernails, I plan to use them for my future makeup creations. Rhinestone nail arts can be pretty amazing, but it´s nothing for me. On the other side I´m glad I have them because you never know when they will be handy :)
