Check out Makeuptini’s new location


I was drawn to this color at the same time I became obsessed with MUFE #15 lipstick. I love teal colored eyeliners so this one made its way home with me. The felt pen made it easy to apply the eyeliner. I was concerned about the tip because I haven’t had much success with felt tip liners in the past. But this one worked so well I could line my lower eye lid with no problems.  As you can see in the photo the liner looks fantastic.

A huge problem arose after wearing the eyeliner for a couple of hours. My eyes are a little watery which caused the eyeliner on  near my lower eyelashes to melt off.  I saw a puddle of eyeliner! It looked like teal tears were seeping out of my eyes! What a mess. I had to wipe it away with a tissue before it bleed down my face.

The eyeliner on my upper eyelids faded after a few hours. Horrors! So pale above and melting off below! I loved the color but eyeliner that won’t stay put is worthless to me. I returned the eyeliner to Sephora and went back to my trusty LA Splash liquid eyeliners.

I bought this palette months ago but it’s providing endless makeuptini looks.  See my palette below? It’s heavy in thick durable plastic compared to other eyeshadow palettes I own.  But I love it! Wish there were more blues and browns and less yellows and oranges.

Seriously how many oranges and yellows does a gal need? I need maybe four tops each but this has a row each of orange and yellow! Most I don’t even use. The blue shadows are great and I’d love more. There are only like 4 browns and they are red/orange browns when I was hoping for more chocolate browns.

Hope you like my looks. None of the colors are labeled so you can use whatever colors look similar to mine from the palette.

I love this look with Red, Yellow and Green. Sorry for the unkempt eyebrow and the stray hairs that need plucking. Funny how in the mirror things look fine but when I take a photo all the mistakes are noticeable. Then I’m wondering “How did I miss that! And that! And I thought I had blended that better!” Oh well, this self portrait stuff is helping me improve my makeup application. LOL!

It’s a stunning look and I never realized how much green eye shadow makes my eyes pop. I stick to blues and teals. This green has been a fun adventure.

I love this look. It reminds me of a rainbow. Wearing a Nars eyeliner which I’ll review in another post.

And here’s another favorite with yellow, sky blue and darker blue:

Get yourself the 120 color palette! It’s hours of makeup fun with great makeuptini looks to be created. I found mine on ebay for less than $20.00 plus shipping.
