Quick Beauty Tip: Where to get storage pots for pigment

I hate dealing with pigments on a day to day basis – they get everywhere but the best way to carry or use my many many loose powder shadows is to put them into those stackable pots. However – I was shocked when they charged me a whopping £4.60 for a 6 tier stackable – its EMPTY for christssake! Talk about taking advantage. Muji and Chemists also sell the empty stackable but I find them […]

Haul: NYX Ultra Pearl Mania & Glitter & Lipsticks

nyx-ultra-pearl-mania.jpg

It’s been a bit of a hauling week although everything I have bought has been more drugstore level and I’ve been seeking out bargains wherever possible (although I badly want the Creme De La Mer Powder Treatment Foundation. I am guessing priced around £75?) Anyway there are some great eBay sellers out there that sell NYX items to us in the UK for good prices. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania pigments are very fine textured and […]

Models Own Make Up Brand: Lip Gloss, Eyeshadows and Nail Polish

I cooed when I first saw the brand Models Own – the sheer scale of pigment eyeshadows had my excited, the fact that the items were affordable had me excited. The shadows remind me of Barry M – is Models Own a successor? When it comes to the loose powder eyeshadow there are a whopping 60 shades. I tried three in matte neon colours in pink, yellow and purple (if they aren’t actually matte, they […]

Etsy is a great place to browse for homemade goodies – sellers are usually based in the US but shipping rates tend to be very reasonable. There’s quite a few mineral make up beauty companies on there. Some are good. Some are really quite naff. It depends, it’s a bit of pot luck but these days everyone thinks they know how to make mineral make up! Then there’s Candy Glam. The swatches they have are […]

Barry M dazzle dusts are a really good alternative to MAC Pigments – I have both (about 60 MAC piggies) and I generally find Barry M less messy to work with (finer textured generally speaking). They also cost £4.50 and Boots tend to have 3 for 2 or special offers on from time to time. There are 6 new colours for Spring (I got Parrot Green, the most stunning true green later on – will […]

I got some pigments from a mineral make up company calledHeavenly Naturals – and they are tres pretty! They cost $4.99 each for a full 5gram jar. Dark Circle Concealer: This concealer is salmon coloured and works a treat, especially with a bit of primer underneath so it sticks. I likey! Pigments: Sea Dragon – A rich emerald green colour – like a foresty rich green, very pretty. Paper Doll – A shimmery light pink […]

Pressed Pigments & Storage Idea!

So I took it upon myself to press nearly all my MAC Pigments and some other random ones. Problem is I had no where to put them all! So in the end I got some gift boxes (DVD Sized) and used magnetic strips. The strips look like this and can be bought from craft stores and Ebay. I got a 5 meters for around £6. These also have a self adhesive back and is easy […]

Idea for Depotted Eyeshadows

So I have got into pressing me pigments lately (badly might I add – I have been mixing the powder with Isopropyl Alcohol then getting my stronger other half to press them for me with a coin) but as you see, mine are all crumbly: Nevertheless, now that I have a ton of these I need somewhere to put them all! But since I have about 72 to put into palettes…well thats a lot of […]
