Valentine's Day LOOKS

Betty Boop Valentines Day Pictures, Images and Photos
Valentine Pictures, Images and Photos

The Day is almost here  --- you may love it or you may hate it but "always go with a smile."

L'OREAL HIP DUO - N- 'Flamboyant'
I've been eyeing L'oreal Duo's for a long time especially this color.  It's so pretty and vibrant, but I never bought it because it reminded me of MAC's Limited Style Warriors - Vibrant Grape (purple) and Bright Future (yellow).  In my opinion, it is similar and both are very gorgeous.  Therefore, if you never purchased those two colors from MAC this is a perfect substitute. I bought different colors so I'll be posting further looks.

Too Face Eye Primer
MAC 'Bare Study' Paint Pot
L'oreal Duo - 'yellow' in the inner to middle of lid
L'oreal Duo - 'purple' in the middle lid to outer lid
Using MAC #224 blending brush, I blend the outer lid using the 'purple'
MAC 'Da Bling' e/s on the crease and blending up toward the brow
L'oreal Duo 'purple' under the waterline and then using MAC #217 blending brush to give it a smokey look
Urban Decay 'Zero' eyeliner on lid and waterline

I used the same description as below in my 1st look except I used:
Cheek - Maybelline Dream Mousse #25 Rose Petal - VERY PRETTY TEXTURE & COLOR

MAC LE Lipstick 'Full Body' 
MAC LE Lipglass 'Personal Taste' - LOVE this color and the combination with the lipstick. I had to buy 2 of each before it was completely gone from the store.
 I didn't use a  lip liner but if you like to use it the following are good matches: Quartz (MAC); Blackberry (Bitchslap) or Mahogany (NYX)

 This is not very good picture, but the colors I used are from MAC Style Warriors so you can compare to L'oreal Duo Flamboyant.

Sigma Brushes

 Sigma Brush Roll - a very nice size


Brushes for the FACE SS#150 (Powder); #187 (Foundation/Blush); #168 (Blush/Couture); #190 (Foundation/Cream)

MAC vs. Sigma #187

'Pros' of the SS Brush it's very soft and the bristles are as the same as MAC's #187
'Cons' of the SS Brush it's longer than MAC 187.  However, that may be a good thing for some.  I have short arms and little hands yet I still feel comfortable using this brush.
Overall, I love both brushes Sigma and MAC.

EYE Brushes Sigma#224; 239; 275; 252; 219; 209; and 266

                         #224                            #224                             #219
Sigma #224 and #219 are much longer than MAC's #224 & #219 but it works just the same.  In fact, these are my 2 favorite brushes and I use it more than MAC.  At first, I wasn't feeling SS #224 & #219 cause the bristles didn't look like MAC's but as soon as I tried it I FELL IN LOVE - it's so soft and blends so nicely.  Besides using #219 for smudging or smoking out the eye, I also like the pay off using it for the lips especially using dark colors like RED.  Therefore, I now use SS #219 for the eye and MAC #219 for lips (it scratches the eye a bit but works beautiful for the lips).
