Mesmerizing Mirage - A Kiss My Sass Look & Review

Hello everyone, I hope you guys had a fun Super Bowl weekend! I was a little disappointed that the Patriots lost (we were in a Super Bowl pool and almost won $300, damn)! Oh well, everything happens for a reason, right?

Anyway, I created a look the other day using Kiss My Sass Cosmetics. I am so in love with these indie mineral makeup companies, I cannot get enough! I wanted to create something warm, summery and somewhat beachy and came up with this. I thought it would be nice to imagine being on a beautiful beach or oasis sippin' on a margarita....yum! I instantly thought of a desert oasis when I did this and I think it suits every skin and eye color!

EYES:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Kiss My Sass Eyeshadow in Vegas (all over lids)
  • Kiss My Sass Eyeshadow in Sailor's Kiss and Poison Ivy (mixed to created teal shade)

  • Kiss My Sass Eyeshadow in Sandcastle (on brow bone)
  • Kiss My Sass Eyeshadow in Purple Poppy (to set pencil in waterline)

REVIEW:

The ever so sweet Elizabeth from Kiss My Sass Cosmetics let me choose $15 worth of stuff over at kissmysasscosmetics.com and as you can see below, you can get quite a bit of goodies with 15 bucks! Since most of my looks are focused on the eyes, I went ahead and chose all eyeshadows, but they also offers lip and face products as well! The shadows are like most other mineral loose pigments I've tried; incredibly soft, smooth, pigmented and absolutely gorgeous. The colors are unique and fun...even the name of the company is right up my alley.  I love that you can order sample sizes to try out before actually purchasing the full sized shadow. She was also kind enough to include 2 samples of their Matte Eye Primers. They are buttery soft and creamy and would be ideal for someone with dry eyelids.
SHADOWS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE FOLLOWING SIZES:
5g Jar w/ approx. 1 tsp (no sifter) - $5.00 USD

5g Jar w/ approx. 1/4 tsp (no sifter) - $2.00 USD

2" x 2" Bag with approx. 1/8 tsp - $1.00 USD 

Swatched over UDPP

EYESHADOWS
Sandcastle is a smooth, matte cream/ivory shade that's perfect for highlighting.
 Coma White is a silky white with a pink/purple shimmer.
Piercing Parlor is a gorgeous silver with a metallic sheen. One of my faves!
Charcoal suits it's name well; a dark matte gray and it's perfect for smoky eyes!
Vegas is a bright sparkling gold, and is simply orgasmic. I have a weakness for gold pigments!
Purple Poppy is a beautiful shimmery magenta/purple that screams spring time.
 Reign Over Me is a blue based purple with a turquoise sheen and pink sparkles. Photos do NOT do this shade justice, one of the prettiest colors I've seen in a long time.
Sailor's Kiss is a super pretty vibrant blue with gold flecks that is reminiscent on the sea.
  Poison Ivy is a stunning vibrant green with gold & copper sheen. Simply beautiful.
Alternate packaging (Coma White and Charcoal came with this design).


PRIMERS
Matte Eye Primer Size:
10g in a 10g Jar - $7.00 USD

5g in a 5g Jar - $4.00 USD

1g in a 5g Jar - $2.00 USD 

Ivory Matte Eye Primer is a nearly translucent light ivory/yellow, They yellow undertone cancels out any redness around the eye area.
White Matte Eye Primer is a nearly translucent white that helps intensify any shade.

  2. Man, I can totally see why all these companies are always knocking down your door to collaborate with you. Your looks are always the best advertising money can buy. I always want to max out my credit card after you feature new looks/products. Bad Ronnie, bad!

    On a semi unrelated note, this is a very interesting color combination you've dreamed up. I've been around the block in makeup world and not yet come across a color combo like this. You are just one in a million, lady.

  6. This is such a unique look, I just love it!  I'm always a fan of a different color on the lower lashline!  Your liner is such perfection it's insane!

  7. I am absolutely in love with this look, especially the teal on the lower lashline. That purple is such a pretty shade and looks amazing against the teal and yellow! I'm so trying this out, hopefully it's half as amazing as yours!

  10. I love this look a lot.  I'm very impressed by the color payout of these shadows and just may check them out because of it.  I'm very excited by the Poison Ivy color! 

    On a bit of a side note, in the reviews of the individual colors you listed "Coma White" as "Come White."  While I'm not usually nit picky on grammar, etc on blogs...it makes the shadow seem a bit *cough* umm.....risque?  I just thought I'd point it out.  :)
