Review: Canmake Four Shiny Eyes Palette!

Grey eyeshadow has really been my thing recently, so I thought I’d share a palette I use for a quick grey look!

Canmake Four Shiny Eyes palette!

This is the Canmake Four Shiny Eyes palette in 05 – Bitter Coffee.
Canmake is a really cheap brand here.  Their products are hit or miss, but I sometimes buy one of their products if I want to try a new color.
(Their cheek products seem to be the best)
Let’s take a closer look at the palette!
And some swatches!
As you can see, most of the colors are kind of a plummy taupey grey color.
The name Bitter Coffee makes me think of a dark brown palette, but this is really not brown!
All the colors are pretty shimmery, but not very glittery as many drugstore palettes are.
The third color from the left does have a bit of glitter in it.  The surprising part is that it is green glitter!!!! Even more surprisingly, the green glitter goes well with this grey!
A quick EOTD since I haven’t posted one in a while!
Hope everyone is doing great!!!

EOTD – Cut the Crease Attempt!

If you follow me on twitter, you might know that I tried my hand at a cut the crease look the other day.  I didn’t think I could do it because I have typical East Asian eyes – no crease, just a fold.  I have never been able to “put color in the crease”!
I really debated whether or not to put the look on here because I totally didn’t blend out well, but hey, at least I tried!

I was inspired by this youtube video:

The finished look!
Oooh blood shot eyes!
Closed eyes

I did not smoke the color out as much as I should have!
That’s what I get for doing my makeup in bad lighting!!

 What I used:

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold
Milani eyeshadow in Beach Sand
MAC pigment in Deep Purple
Barry M Super Soft Eye Pencil
Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof
MAC Lipglass in Pink Grapefruit
Yes, I will try again!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Most of you know that I never join in the giveaways where you are supposed to post a link to the giveaway. I don’t really have anything against those giveaways, but they just aren’t my thing.

BUT…
Important causes call for exceptions.

Wuzzy is GENEROUSLY hosting a contest/giveaway to promote breast cancer awareness.

I have not heard about Breast Cancer Awareness Month anywhere in Japan, but 40,000 women here are diagnosed with breast cancer EVERY YEAR!

You can find more info (in Japanese) at http://www.nyugan.jp/

Here’s a quick pink look (eyes and cheeks) using stuff I got from Wuzzy in my very first swap!

Have you had your mammogram? I wanted to get one, but I was refused because I’m under 30…  Does that tell you how low the awareness is here??????

PS: Izumi at Moto Jewelry is hosting a wonderful special.  Buy anything from her this month and she will donate $10 to either the Philippine Red Cross or Breastcancer.org!!!!

You need to change your settings to enable it, but I really like it!
It especially makes it a lot easier to post pictures!!

Hope you are all having a great day!
