Hey guys! I FINALLY got around to trying out one of the Calypso Mineral pigments stacks that I won from Sonja's(The Beautiful Life of the Girl Next Door) giveaway a few weeks ago! And let me tell you, I am in love! My favorite out of the ten shadows is True Blue. It is like a matte, shimmer free version of Sugarpill's Royal Sugar!(comparison later in the post)
So this was my inspiration, isn't it pretty? :o
And here is the look I created using ONLY Calypso Minerals Shadows :D (with the exception of a Highlight)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX JEP - Milk
Calypso Minerals in Drama, True Blue, Matte Black, and Lemon Sorbet
Sugarpill e/s - Tako
Physicians Formula Gel Liner
Prestige Liner - White
Maybelline Collosal Mascara
NYC Liquid Lip Shine in Dusty Rose
This is what I got from Sonja(she is an absolute doll and I love her!) She even included a sweet card with a special Surprise inside ;D
Top to Bottom: Razzle Dazzle, Torrid, Lemon Sorbet, Sublime, Envy, Drama, True Blue, Grape Pop, Matte Violet and Matte Black
Left to Right: Razzle Dazzle, Torrid, Lemon Sorbet, Sublime, Envy, Drama, True Blue(favorite), Grape Pop, Matte Violet and Matte Black(favorite) - Like seriously, that Matte black is so pigmented it can replace my NYX e/s in Black!
Calypso Minerals on the Left and Sugarpill on the Right
And here is the surprise inside the card that I wasn't expecting: A whole set of silver rhinestones. I had talked to here recently asking her where she got hers because I had been dying to have some and she sent me a bit in the card! :D ♥
