Maybelline Holiday 2013 Gilded in Cold Color Tattoo Swatches: Nude Pink & Just Beige

I was able to track down these LE color tattoo cream shadows at Bed Bath & Beyond. They were $4.99 each. Here are some swatches and descriptions of the colors.
Nude Pink is a relatively dark nude-pink shade and is completely matte. 
Just Beige is also matte, and is lighter and has strong peach and yellow tones.
I no longer own MAC's Painerly and Soft Ochre paint pots, but I have used them before, and going from memory: Just Beige is more yellow and peachy and a little lighter than Soft Ochre; and Nude Pink is more pink and darker than Painterly.
For the swatches I also included 2 of my other color tattoos(Barely Beige and Barely Branded), they are pearly and so look lighter because they are more reflective, but I though I would included them for comparison since they are also nude colors.

In the Jars:

Barely Beige, Nude Pink, Barely Branded, Just Beige

EOTD: SIlk Naturals Friday & Siobhan

Quick eye look of the day, I am using two of the new Silk Naturals Fall Collection colors. Friday all over the lid and Siobhan in the crease. 
I also have on a Physicians Formula liquid liner in Dark Brown and Buxom Amplified Mascara.
I really love the pop of purple that Siobhan gives. I am usually scared of warmer purples that have red to them because that can make it look like I have a bruised eye, but this shade has a little bit of a violet shine that makes it a touch cooler and very wearable for me.

Disclaimer: Silk Naturals did send me these shadows, but all opinions are honest and my own.

Lip Swatches: Silk Naturals Fall 2013 Collection

In this post you will find pics of me wearing all the new lippies from the Silk Naturals Fall 2013 Collection.
If you missed my original post with all the swatches, you can find it here
First, I just want to show you real quick what I have on my eyes:

This is mainly Cocktail Hour on lid and Date Night in the crease, both foiled. But I also used a little bit of Tuesday to blend the crease color out and Friday as highlight in the inner corner.















 And here is my attempt at an ombre lip with Pow and Bam:

Silk Naturals Fall 2013 Swatches

The Silk Naturals Fall 2013 "Keep It Simple Sweetheart" Collection is out!
There are lots of beautiful everyday shades, and the shadows are even named after weekdays, how handy is that! Now, as long as you can remember what day of the week it is, you don't need to plan out what shadow to wear :) There are a few other shades as well such as Cocktail Hour and Date Night. As well as a warm brown that pretty much screams fall called Scene Stealer. And a really fun deep red-plum shade called Siobhan which was a request from the blogger Phyrra(lover her blog!).
There are a couple of fun statement lippies, such as Bam which is a very pigmented black(perfect for Halloween) and Pow which is a fuchsia. The rest of the lippies are very wearable shades. There are some lovely pigmented vegan lipsticks, and for those who like their lip colors sheer and glossy some Slick Sticks. Jolt and Shock are two new jellies that join the very popular jelly shade from this summer Strawberry Fields. 
I can't wait to make some beautiful look with these lovelies!
