Sephora's Cleopatra Kit

Monday, October 26, 2009

So I was at Sephora, just planning to buy a white eyeliner (who am I kiddin!), and I noticed they had these REALLY cool Halloween makeup kits.  So of course I had to buy one!  The stuff inside each kit is approximately a $65 value, but the entire kit is only $19.  Who could resist?  Here's the link if you're interested in buying it: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P248830&categoryId=C19441&shouldPaginate=true

So basically it comes with some tint/glosses, a black eyeliner, an iridescent purple eye crayon, a peakcock-ish colored glitter eyeliner, falsies, and a Gold glitter spray (okay, seriously, I really bought the kit for the glitter liner and the glitter spray, but I feel like I got the rest of the stuff for free!  LOL).

Inside the box cover, there are instructions to create 3 different looks:  Greek Goddess, Peacock, and Cleopatra.  Since I was just messing around (not wearing this look outside!), I decided to play with Cleopatra because that was the most difficult and this would give me practice.  I think my eyes turned out pretty decent....

I have more pictures up on Facebook, but this is a better shot because I'm smiling and you can't see both eyes.  Hahahaa...yeah, I tried like 5 times and could not get my eyes even.  I'll have to plan out the lines better next time (and yes, there will be a next time!).

Overall, the instructions were pretty easy to follow, and they had pictures (although extremely tiny) of what each look is supposed to look like.  For my next try, I think I want some golden powder.  And a deeper golden lip gloss.  On my lips, I have a bright red color, but a gold gloss on top.  I wanted it to shimmer more, but it didn't turn out how I hoped.  But like I said, this is just practice.  (And....yeah, I hate to admit it, but I'm not even going to be Cleopatra for Halloween!)  Hmm..although...maybe I can convince a certain someone to dress up...and then we can go as Cleopatra and Mark Anthony!  Hahah, fat chance, but a girl can dream, right?

It didn't occur to me to put my hair down for pictures until after I had already uploaded them.  Grrr...next time!
