Fall is here! And we all know that pumpkin spice is the flavor of the season. I wanted to try this pumpkin spice inspired makeup look just to see if I could pull off an orange eyeshadow. I am very pleased with the results! I wanted to share some of the products that I used on this look…
Lottie For LimeLight Dazzle palette – I used the bold orange on the lid and the yellow gold on my inner corners. I defined the crease with a light brown and dark brown eyeshadow also made by LimeLight by Alcone.
Wet N Wild PhotoFocus Foundation – I heard good reviews about this fairly new foundation. I wanted to try it because it is an affordable option at the drugstore. I selected the lightest shade, Porcelain and it is labeled Fair/Warm. I am fair/neutral but this looked like the closest match. It is a great match and I don’t think it appears warm at all. I was a little confused by the packaging because it comes with a little wand attached to the lid. You can use that to apply to spot it on your face or what I like to do, apply it to the back of my hand. I used a foundation brush to apply it and blend. This foundation has a medium buildable coverage. I liked it a lot and would purchase it again!
i finished this look with a matte brown lip color. First, I applied Vera Moore Cosmetics lip liner in Pecan. Then, I applied NYX Cosmetics Lingwrie lip in Beauty Mark. Don’t be afraid to try a deep lip color. 😉

I picked up some Nicka K products found at my local beauty supply. This mini-haul includes 4 Aqua Lip Colors and Perfect Twenty-One Colors eyeshadow/blush palette.
I have tried Nicka K eye shadows and lip glosses in the past and very impressed with the quality and affordability. So I was excited to try out more of their products. In this post, I will be reviewing the Aqua Lip Colors.

I love the sleek and simple packaging of their products. And of course I am a lipgloss junkie. I chose random colors. These are colors I do not normally wear. I think I own enough pinks and nudes but not too many bold colors so I thought why not try something different? I was interested in how much color payoff I could get with these and why they are called “Aqua”. I assumed it is meant to be a wet look gloss.
My first impression of these was “Yes, these are highly pigmented” with one application. I applied them without any base products or lip liner. They actually have a cool, hydrating feel when it is applied to the lips. The finish is ultra-glossy as I expected. The colors are bold, bright and long-lasting. Aqua Lip Colors are available in 18 shades. You can order them at http://www.nicka.com
In my next post, I will be reviewing the Perfect Twenty-One Colors palette so check back soon!
