looooong time no see! I am not sure how many of you are actually still around, but i wanted to write a little post about something really keeping me busy.
My very good friend Loraine, owner of Coloured Raine Cosmetics recently released an amazing product, the Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints. Since we have been working together for almost 2 years now (that would be the beginning of my instagram), i was asked to test, swatch and help to get this product perfectly right. After an entire year of going back and forth, choosing colours, perfecting the formula, the first shades of the Matte Lip Paints finally released a couple months ago.
I am so obsessed with this product, i guess because my opinion on it played a role and i was able to help to create such an amazing formula.
So, let's first have a look:

I've purchased the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy palette last week at Ulta, together with the new Dipbrow Pomade shades (see last post for swatches).
Now, the palette contains mainly neutral shades, except the 'Iridescent Purple' & 'Emerald'. But you can simply create a variety of looks with it if you, for example, combine it with some colorful Eyeliners...
'Morrocco' & 'Caramel' are wonderful transition shades, 'Vanilla', 'Legend' & 'Glisten' make gorgeous highlighters & 'Deep Plum' & 'LBD' help you create that one or other perfect smoky eye.
The shades are buttery & super blendable, so 2 thumbs up for the quality.
The most looks i have seen so far with this palette, were of course, neutral or smoky eyes. If you know me, i sometimes try to add a touch of 'special' or a pop of colour into my creations, so i did with this one - enjoy:

i was so lucky to receive the first few Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade shades as promo samples beginning of the year & they quickly became my favorite brow product. Now the brand has released 3 additional shades, what of course excited me, and i went to Ulta Monday to pick them up (next to the Amrezy palette).
I finished the swatches this morning & i am happy to share them with you. After all i've gotten many requests on Instagram (come add me @theamazingworldofj) since people find it hard to pick the right shade.
I hope these will help you a bit. My tip is to get a brighter & a darker shade & mix them up or create a gradient brow, which is more natural looking.
Enjoy my chart:

since i am busy setting my new place up - guess what? I had to redesign my Vanity Area as well!
Little over year ago i have already shared my vanity set up 'under $100' with you *CLICK* and since so much more Makeup was added to my collection i had to upgrade a little, add more storage & adjust to the smaller space. Also, i got tired of the black - so now i chose mainly white furniture, but kept some black accents like my mirror & the black storage case.
