Dupe for MAC’s CRANBERRY!!

This is as close as I could get to finding a dupe for MAC’s Cranberry.. This is Cranberry on Left, Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Redstone on Right.  EnkoreMakeup on YouTube did a dupe video that listed Hot Pot S17 as a dupe.  This is false.  S17 is really red!  This is the closest hot pot I see to Cranberry.  Will produce the same effect on the eyelid. The hot pot is slightly more red.  90% dupe.
Oh and by the way.  I’m looking at Hot pots first.  There are so many different colors  so they are my best option to finding really good dupes and they are $1.95.


Dupe for Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Zero

Came across these Total Intensity Eyeliner Pencils by Prestige at HEB about a month ago when I needed some emergency makeup (forgot my makeup bag) Anyways, these pencils apply like butter and last all day.  I bought three. :-) The black, deepest black actually performs better than UD's 24/7 pencil in Zero. The Prestige liner is abut $10

Just noticed the 24/7 pencil swatch looks is not.  I did a swatch with the 24/7 eye pencil and it was crooked.. so I wiped it off and swatched it again.

Dupe for MAC’s TILT!!

This is as close as I could get to finding a dupe for MAC’s TILT..  Tilt is just a tiny bit more purple but this is a very close dupe.  Its also only $1.95 at Coastalscents.
The Dupe is Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Gypsy Blue.  (I own MAC's Tilt and Gypsy Blue..FYI)  Mac's Tilt is on the Left in both pictures..Gypsy Blue on Right.

Best Eye Primer

The absolute best eye primer out there is the toofaced shadow insurance.  It is absolutely amazing.  It last throughout my entire school and work day which is 15 + hours.  This is the only primer that really makes my eye shadow last.  Ive tried:

ELf eyeshadow primer
ELf's mineral  eyeshadow primer
Urban Decay's primer potion
Palladio's Eye Primer
Too Faced Shadow Insurance

By the end of my 15 hour day each of these primers show some creasing EXCEPT Too Faced Shadow Insurance.  Somehow my eye shadow still looks perfect.  This stuff is amazing and since you only use a little it lasts a really long time..  I will not waste anymore money.  TooFaced Shadow Insurance is the one for me!!!

So, I have been on the search for a dupe for the Cordura Duo for sometime now.  So, I went to sephora and Target in search of the NARS Cordura Duo dupes yesterday...It took a really long time because the brown in the Nars Cordura duo is so unique.....
 But, I finally found a really close match and it will work for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Here it is.  I will have to swatch them later for you guys.  The revlon palette is very pigmented and I picked up mine, on sale, for $5.99 USD.  Let me know what you guys think.  :-) 

The two matching shades...side by side...

The Neutral Palette: A must HAVE!!!!

This is an Elf Custom Compact ($1.00) that I stuffed with my four most needed shades. (Its comes with an applicator) You can get a four pan compact from elf or from coastal scents.  My shades are custom made by pressing eyeshadow singles I had into pans from coastal scents  The colors you need are: 
1.1.  Matte White 
2.2.  Matte Skincolor
3.3.  Matte Brown
4.4.  Matte Black 
This compact will allow you to lighten, darken and blend any makeup look.  When I think my look is to dark…I blend some white into it…
When I want to deepen my makeup look I blend some black or brown into it.. Depending on the shades of the look.
You can also soften eyeliner by applying the black or brown over your eyeliner...You can also correct eyeliner mistakes this way  and this also lengthens the staying power of the eyeliner
I use this thing ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!

9 Lives of Chloe King

I got inspired when I saw this cover page. 

I went out last night and wore this look which was beautiful.  Its like a red and brown smoky eye:  Heres my take on it... The pictures of me don't do they look justice...It's much darker and vibrant than the pictures show.  But you can see how deep the brown and red are in the chloe king picture.
