summer brights

So usually I'm pretty neutral when it comes to makeup. Lately however, I've really been on a color kick. Bright fun summery shades look great in the summer, when your skin is brighter and you've gotten a little sun, these colors really pop and can look fresh.

Nicka K. Cosmetics HD eyeshadows: While browsing a local bargin shop I came across a delicious tray of bright super pigmented eyeshadows at $1.20 a pop! I just had to grab a few. I was nervous
about the quality however I have used these and they
are Great!! The colors are so rich and they stay put all day. I'm definitely scooping up some more of these!

Here are some swatches (photo quality is poor but trust's bright!)
blue: 3059
orangey pink #3004: very
similar to Mac's Passionate!
Magenta #3039

Wet n' Wild lipstick 907 C: This is a great berry toned pink. It's very wearable for most skin tones in all seasons. This shade pairs well with brights shadows worn as liner...and it's only about $2! Can't beat that!

YSL water resistant cream eyeshadow 40G210: I purchased this in Barcelona pretty recently. This was a case of the ad sucking me was just so pretty! The model had this on as eyeliner on the top and bottom and it was paired with an orangey red lipstick and gloss. I know, I know, sounds crazy...and it was....CRAZY GORGEOUS! So i bought it. I haven't seen it at any YSL counter in the US however I'm sure it's available for purchase online. It can be worn as shadow or liner and it absolutely does not budge!
