FOTD: Cargo and Maybelline

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

A quick look I did a weekend or 2 ago while trying to chase the sun for some natural light, featuring the 2 Cargo products I reviewed yesterday.

Moreton Bay eyeshadow is on the eyes, over Maybelline Color Tattoo in Stroke of Midnight. I achieved the dark purple look I wanted.

On the cheeks is Ibiza Swimmables water resistant blush. It still looks cool toned on my cheeks the same way it did in the swatch (in the post linked above).

Still pretty impressed with the texture of the blush since the first time I tried it. Maybe this is why makeup is so much fun. Besides the colours, textures and finishes also enhance your imagination and curiosity. So, explore a little, don't stick with just one option. Just a thought :)

Other products I used:
- CoverGirl Clean whipped creme foundation in 320 Creamy Natural
-  Maybelline The Eraser Dark Spot concealer + treatment in Light/ Medium
- Maybelline Master Glaze blush stick in Barely Pink as a brow bone highlight
Didn't really work out very well, it looks bronze under my brows. Remains as a blush it would be lol
- Maybelline the Falsies Big Eyes mascara in Blackest Black
- Avon SuperShock gel eye liner pencil in Plumful on lower lash line
- Wet n Wild ColorIcon brow & eye liner in Dark Brown
- Clinique Different lipstick in A Different Grape
This lipstick was from a GWP pack quite a while ago, dark and smooth as I wanted. I have to remind myself to use the GWPs, especially when I went nuts shopping to get them :)

A huge thank you to all of your constant support on the blog. Sparkled Beauty passed one million pageviews last night, a month before its fifth birthday!

Don't know if you remember, I started the blog on Squirt's birthday back in 2009 so that I always celebrate big for both my children every year :)

Last year, Squirt turned 10 with a big karaoke and dance party. This year, 5 is a big milestone for the blog, and I would have to match the level of excitement. Stay tuned for one of the biggest giveaways next month!

Looking back, I can't imagine my life without the blog now. Sure it takes lots of time to run, but it gives back too. It is my outlet when I need to relax or seek comfort. It is where I can just be me. Thank you for joining this journey through life (with beautiful sparkly things) with me :)
