Can you imagine if HBC and Shannyn Sossamon could have a love child together. AHHHHH!!

Not wearing anything today, but I wore this yesterday.

And I'm not sure if you can tell in this photo, but this is to express my frustrations with this Kat Von D Chrysalis palette and its patchiness:

upload_8956347901825697516.jpg

 

All of these photos were taken hours after I applied my makeup. I had reapplied gloss just a little bit before taking the photos. The rundown!

 

FACE

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Finland

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer NW20

MAC MSF Natural Light Plus

Diffused and Ethereal Light

MUG Blush in Head Over Heels

 

EYES:

ABH Dipbrow (oy, mine's starting to get too dry... might need to repurchase soon)

KVD Chrysalis Palette

KVD Tattoo Liner

Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara

 

LIPS:

Nars Super Orgasm Gloss

 

Now, the thing about the Chrysalis palette is that I find it really, really finicky and somewhat difficult to use. I've had to fiddle around with so many different primers and strategies to get this palette to work more easily for me. Glitter Glue helps, but I usually apply it late into my eyeshadow application because it's a bit difficult to blend shades when they are on top of Glitter Glue. The darker shades are difficult to blend smoothly and almost always go patchy on me after several hours regardless of the primer I wear underneath.

 

SEVERE sadface. This is why I'm so hesitant to buy another palette like Vice 3 right now! I don't want the frustration I'm getting with KVD's Chrysalis to happen again. I still intend to keep the palette because I really love the lighter and silvery shades, but I think it's such a shame that I find it so challenging to use.

 

Anyway, here's a bonus pic of me switched over to glasses in a more 'natural' looking light.upload_6263661076918829448.jpg

I love this look even though it was hard work for you. To be honest, I really worked with the Chrysalis palette one day when I was in Sephora, just to make sure I wasn't making a mistake in bypassing it, and I couldn't get it to work for me at all. I didn't even think the colors were flattering on me. If anyone can make it work (and look great in it), it's you. But if this isn't working for you and it's still within the 60-day return window, I'd think about returning it. I know you don't like to return things but you can't say you didn't try to get it to work.

 

I love the blue color of your sweater on you! This is one of the top flattering colors for you (and actually, is pretty flattering on me too--can I borrow it? :smileywink:)  I love your eyeglasses too; they look a touch blue (which would look nice on you) but if they're black, it looks like a nicer black (not too dark black).

Wow - this look was worth the hard work that went into it! These colors really make your eyes pop :smileyhappy:

Sorry to hear Chrysalis is giving you so much trouble but if its any consolation, youre definitely making it work! I might not be posting as much lately but I'm creeping (LOL) and all your Chrysalis looks are very beautiful!

 

And how are you liking the MUG blush? Do you own any others?

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

Ha! Thank you so much, SD! I know the look ends up being all right, but just keep in mind that each time I try to use the Chrysalis exclusively, I really have to fuss with it way longer than I've ever had to with my other palettes. Sigh.

 

That said, I adore my Head Over Heels MUG blush. It's seriously one of my favorite shades to wear right now. I have one other shade, Spell Bound, and for my complexion it's a nice everyday blush that goes with everything. I think I definitely like Head Over Heels better than Spell Bound, but both are very high quality and last all day on me. :smileyhappy: I really recommend that you give one or two a try!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I remember when you first started using this.. I had my doubts about this palette because the darker shades just seemed a bit too chalky. The Monarch palette is just perfect and I didn't really feel Chrysallis was in the same ballgame. The only thing that called my attention where the darker shades but when I'd swatch them the color payoff wasn't what I expected it to be so I chose Monarch instead. That being said, I do think you look great using the colors in this palette, but it's a shame that it's difficult to choose. I know what you mean about being hesitant about making the jump and buying another palette after one has given you trouble.. but.. I did end up buying  Vice 3, I already have some ideas in my head about a lot of shadows in that palette! 

Btw, I'm not much of a gloss girl but when I do I go from Benefit coralista (looooooooooooove the scent) and Nars Orgasm gloss, and now I think I need this. It looks to have a more pinkish tone to it than the peachiness I achieve with the normal orgasm one. 

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

I'm relying on you and the other ladies around here to let me know how the Vice 3 palette performs! I don't want to buy another big palette unless I know I will be very happy with it. :smileyhappy: I personally would direct people straight to the Monarch palette and not Chrysalis if they asked. Thank you so much, in any case, Blackwhiskey. I really do like the Super Orgasm gloss. It gives a nice glittery pink shade to the lips, but there IS chunky glitter, so you've been warned.

I will definitely keep you informed on how well this palette performs. Do you not have the Vice 2? Because I love it so much, I just don't use it as much since obviously it's not available anymore and I'll be sad the day when I run out of a shade.. my fav is this green one.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you for the Glitter Glue vote. I have OCC loose in Blaylock for a costume party and I have been looking for anyone mentioning it or the OCC primer as they are my first two options. My lids have been dropping two of four colors lately from even my reliable BM shadows so I need to pick a primer. Any other tips?

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

This is my first tube of Glitter Glue EVER, but it really really seems to work to adhere glitter to your eyes (though I still get a bit of glitter fallout upon application, so watch out). Make sure you just plan your eye look ahead and know where you want to place your glittery shadow, because I do find the super tacky base makes it a little more challenging to blend the shadow on top of it; it's not impossible, but it'll take a little bit of extra work (or it could just be the KVD palette because I didn't have as much trouble with my Chocolate Bar + Glitter Glue). I hope you like it! I'm really glad I finally bought it, for sure.

I'm not sure if you've ever gotten this, but you are giving me all sorts of Tina Fey-goodness with your glasses on! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What are you wearing today?

That is the first time I've ever heard that, actually! I love Tina Fey, so I consider that a compliment. :smileyvery-happy: Thank you, lylysa!!

You need to don a snappy business skirt suit (a la Weekend Update/30 Rock) and have it be an easy Halloween costume!

got my hair trimmed and touched up today. :smileyhappy:

 

GIORGIO ARMANI luminous silk foundation #2

NARS radiant creamy concealer in chantilly

NYX rouge cream blush in glow**

a silver mineral loose powder from japan on my lids. i know you can't see it here but it's more of a veil style shimmer than anything.

HOURGLASS 1.5 mm mechanical gel pencil, tightlined

GIVENCHY noir couture 4-in-1 mascara

NARS lipstick in red lizard

HOURGLASS opaque liquid lipstick in icon

 

**as a lot of you know i'm generally scared of blush because i think it generally makes me look too flushed and too colorful. but i wanted to give this a try for $6. i really like it for what it is (seriously if you like blush give these a try !) but still don't know if i'll ever make the full leap to the blush train.

 

i look pissed but i'm not. i was having a difficult time getting a photo since i no longer have natural light today to help !

Re: What are you wearing today?

Another fierce Lip! Nars Red Lizard Loves You! Is it blue-under-toned? Feeling very tempted, like I just saw a lipstick advert in a magazine, and now I'm obsessed! And yes you do look like a beauty model :-) I don't feel the blush is making you too colorful; how did it look off camera?

thanks ballerinagrl :smileyhappy: red lizard is my true love. (though i remember when i found it being disappointed in the name haha). as much as i love the reds in the audacious line i think i'll always have red lizard as my go-to always red, cause if it ain't broke why fix it....

 

it may have a slight blue but it's pretty much as red-red as it gets. the swatch online looks pink but it's just wrong, and it looks blueish here but that's the lighting !

I reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly love that side profile view. It's so hot, and your lips look like a cute heart! xD 

I don't know if I could ever use a cream blush, but for the price I'm willing to try. Also, that design in the background = win. 

 

ps, my addiction to nars grows. I just bought one of their eyeshadows in the shade  mekong! 

jemly

Re: What are you wearing today?

[ Edited ]

the cream blushes are so blendable, and i loved the texture. 'glow' looks like a bright pink but it goes on quite sheer which is exactly what i was looking for.

 

and yay NARS !! i guess it goes without saying they're my fave. can't blame you. :smileywink:
