Today I was feeling the pink, so I decided to unearth my pink eyeshadows and lipstick to feature this color.

Here I used the bottom middle of my L.A. Colors eyeshadow palette as the lid wash, and the #2 shade from my Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Purple Pop for the outer corner and crease.

For contrast I used the #4 from Purple Pop as eyeliner. I used Benefit They’re Real Mascara for my lashes.

To top it all off I used Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop for my lips.

For this FOTD, I am featuring the LA Colors eyeshadow palette I received from Peachy Pink Sisters. I have been using this palette a lot in my everyday office makeup, but usually only the top row for a more neutral look. Today I would like to try using the bottom row for a bolder day look.

Here are the products I used. Nichido Makeup Palette for the blush, LA Colors palette, Avon Shine Attract in Happy Pink, Pantene Miracle Water, Ever Bilena Eye Pencil in brown, Fashion 21 Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown, Maybelline Great Lash in Dark Brown, Venus and Mars Smooch Lip Detox, Myra VitaGlow Tinted Moisturizer

Here’s the completed look. It’s still a little conservative (in my opinion), but I like the flash of color in my eyes.

A closer look of my eyes. Pardon the sweat drops on my forehead (ang init!).

What do you think?

I received this L.A. Colors eyeshadow palette from the Peachy Pink Sisters prize pack. This is my third favorite item from the pack, and I thought I should write a swatch post for it. (And at the same time attempt a complete blog post written entirely with my phone.) This palette is named Dreamy.

This is the eyeshadow palette still in its sealed state, along with the information at the back of the card.

And here it is, unpacked and opened.

Finally, here are the swatches. The top photo corresponds to the top row of eyeshadows but in reverse order; same thing with the bottom.

End Note (written with PC): It appears I can write whole blog posts with just my phone. For the interested, I use a Lenovo P700 android phone (ICS) and the apps I used to create this post are 1. Camera FX to take the photos 2. PicsArt to edit and watermark the photos and 3. WordPress to compose and upload the post.

It’s christmas in summer! I certainly felt that way when I received my prize from the Peachy Pink Sisters Post-Valentines Giveaway yesterday. It came in this wonderful prettily wrapped box.

Upon removing the ribbon and mesh wrap, I find a green box with nice prints that I thought were comics but were actually black and white photos of the prize contents. I love the effort that Dawn and Liz put into this!

I even get a handwritten note! Handwritten! I’m so touched!

And without further ado, here are the contents:

Just how awesome are these? I’m especially excited to try out the mascara (I’m running out on my current one, Etude House Oh m’Eye Lash), the eyeshadows, and the necklace. In fact, I already used the mascara today and wore the necklace to work! Check it out:

To Dawn and Liz, thank you so much for these! I am enjoying them a lot! I also love the actual box that they came in. If I’m not mistaken, it’s a Salad Box box. I don’t have one yet, so I really appreciate that you’ve chosen it to put my prizes in. It adds to the feeling of christmas, y’know?
