|#79 Gel Liner (RED) and Duraline 9ml/0.30 oz|
Duraline is such a great tool to have because it converts any gel liner from dry to wet. I've been loving it as well as #75 Gel liner. It's such a rich red matte color. I've used it as a lip liner and lipstain. These liners are smudge and water proof so once it drys it's very hard to remove. I suggest to use a good makeup remover.
** When applying the Duraline, use one drop to your gel liner and brush it on your hand before applying to your face/eyes. **
I paid $8.27 for the gel liner (original price $12.00) and $6.43 for the duraline (original price $9.00)
Z-palette is great for anyone to use. It can hold twice what any other palette can (depending on what/shapes you add). I love this palette because you can customize it by adding eyeshadow, blush & lipstick. This is actually the NEW palette so it comes with magnets (enclosed above) so even if your pan doesn't stick - now it will. All you have to do is stick one of the enclosed to the back of your pan and whaalaa.
** I actually purchased this palette for my mom to customize for her as a Mother's Day present. **

* I have only used this product once and noticed that it didn't seal my lip color, but reduce the color so if I kissed my hand not so much product when on it. I'm still testing it.*

|'Lady Bug' lipstick (4.2g/1.48oz) and 'Red' Lip Pencil (1.1g/.04oz)|
|Swatches: Lip pencil (Left) is soft and Lipstick (Right) is in Satin & Vibrant|
|Refill Blush 'Glow'|
|Color: sheer peach with golden shimmer|
|Left: Lady Bug (MUD)/Right: Lady Bug (MAC)|
MUD's packaging seems smaller than MAC so of course I had to compare. Both products are the same amount and size yet the logo is in different areas.
|L TO R: MAC 'Red She Said' & 'Lady Bug' lipstick/MUD 'Red' lip pencil & 'Lady Bug' lipstick|
MAC's 'Lady Bug' is one of my favorite red lipstick's (and I can't forget Ruby Woo). It's a color I use all year round. Therefore, I started to compare colors. MAC 'Red She Said' is the closest swatch to MUD's 'Lady Bug.' but it's discontinued.
Since I purchased these products at the show, I have been using and LOVING it. It's long lasting so no constant retouching and the best part it doesn't "bleed" so no extra adding around the lips is necessary. I also like the packaging - it tells you what MUD tools you can use to apply the lipstick.
MUD was offering 40% off - I paid $7.80 for the lip pencil (original price $13); $9.00 for the lipstick (original price $15) and $7.80 for the blush (original $13).

|Cream Convertible lip/blush 'Gerbera', Kajal eyeliner 'Onyx'; and Lip Liner 'Obsessed'|
** Stila was offering a GREAT deal at the Makeup Show for all 9 Convertible blushes at $99.00. That's $11 each (original price $25 each). **
'Onyx' is one of the deepest black color I have seen or had. It's great to use as a base on the eyelid and darken your water line for that BOLD edgy look.
'Obsessed' lip liner is such a vibrant pink great for the summer and "pop" colors.
** Great news - they are located in Brooklyn, NY.
Lime Crime Cosmetics:
|Carousel Gloss 'Apple Candy' (3.5 g/0.12 oz)|
I purchased Lime Crime at the Naimes booth for $11.00...I think...(original price$16.99 each). This color is described as a deep ruby red with intense sparkles and pigmentation. Lime Crime is a company known for it's vibrant colors and being cruelty-free/vegan. The product doesn't have a scent and it doesn't feel too heavy on the lips.
I was being really good at MAC - I guess because I lost my phone and was GOING CRAZY looking for it. I finally found it at the NARS counter.....errrrr.......
Anyways, I only bought #44 false eyelashes for $8.00 (original price $14). These lashes are very full and dramatic.
I truly LOVE O.C.C. nail polish!!! The color lasts a long time from chipping, pigmented (as you can see) and it drys quickly. This is my favorite color from its SPRING Collection. O.C.C also have satin, matte & metallic with sheer and opaque finish. I paid $5.00 each (original $8.00).
Femme is a beautiful pink color described as a flamingo shimmery pink.
*I purchased the nail polish as a gift to my mother.*
|'Queen' (Left) and 'Butch' (Right)|
Butch is a discontinued color that O.C.C. was reselling only at IMATS. I didn't buy it at IMATS. I purchased it at the store a few days before the Makeup Show. I would describe this color as a grape/lavendar - very pretty.
This color is described as a holographic silver. It reminds me of MAC's Pro Glitter 3D Silver - pretty.
This color is described as a warm rose pink - very very pretty and it's actually my favorite (followed by Confetti).
This color is described as a bright gold.
The way these products work is you use the sugar base to apply the glitter. It helps prevent fall outs. The glitter comes in 3 cuts: super fine (sf), fine (f) and sugars. Sugars is a translucent glitter with a hint of color. Check out there website to find out more information.
I have two downside using the sugar base. It has a lid over it with a very small hole so only a thin tip brush can be poked in. I've tried several times to remove it but have been unsuccessful. Now I use a small bowl and pour it (eyeball not to over do it). The other downside is poking a brush in the base then glitter and continue going back and forth is how you can pass bacteria and infection to your eyes especially if you use it on others. In addition to using a bowl to pour the base in I use another small bowl for water. This way I apply water before and after every use.
Other then this I have been enjoying and loving these glitters.
