As much as I love bright eyeshadow and bold looks, I've definitely been gravitating more towards wearable color lately...for a while now actually. I get that bright pop but by adding neutral colors, everything is toned down. It's a look that's still fun, but not too over the top for my current taste.
Senna Cosmetics, created by Emmy-nominated makeup artist, Eugenia Weston, is known for its luxurious products from perfecting foundations, to rich eyeshadows, lavish lipcolors and some of the best brow products around. One of my favorite brands to date, I'm sharing my tried-and-true picks for the Best Of Senna Cosmetics.
It was 4 years ago when I first had my makeup done at a MAC counter back home in the San Fransisco Bay Area. It was actually a makeup lesson; a $50 giftcard held my appointment and I was able to use that money towards product after my lesson. The manager did an awesome job showing me how to do a rainbow eye (featured here) with precise placement and flawless blending. She also showed me how to apply false lashes which, until that day, I couldn't apply for the life of me. She also turned me on to Studio Fix Fluid foundation and powder, both of which I still use to this day...my favorite foundation EVER.
I never recreated the look after all this time, until now. Enjoy :)
My first look using Glamrock and Sellout, the beautiful new purple and pink Color Icon eyeshadow singles from wet n wild, as well as another new product of theirs -- the Indigo Blue MegaLast liquid eyeliner. I also used the Petal Pusher 8 palette to keep with the purple theme.

Color, comfort, and care! Luxurious color delivers hours of sheer-to-moderate coverage that glides on buttery-soft for a smooth, moist-looking pout. Lips are pampered with Vitamin E, Amino Acids, Avocado Oil, and Rice Bran Oil that moisturize and condition for silky, soft comfort. And with SPF 15, lips are cared for and protected from harmful UVB rays.

Why MAC? Why...why did you discontinue Hepcat? How could you? O_O
Hepcat is...was...one of my favorite colors from MAC; A bright wine that's completely versatile. It can be used in bright looks, wearable, smokey, anything. But...discontinued. You may still be able to find it at your local MAC counter or store.

Swatches left to right:
Cherry Picking, Don't Bleed Pink, Dollhouse Pink, Pinkerbell, 24 Carrot Gold, Purty Persimmon
Lip swatch of Cherry Picking, over Ulta lipliner in Flesh, blotted. Totally love this color!
It was a while ago when I did my original swatch post on the Mega Last lip colors. Now wet n wild has come out with six new colors for their 2012 line. These new colors are bold, gorgeous, and definitely eye-catching! So far I've only worn Cherry Picking, which I am totally in love with. Next I'm thinking of trying Purty Persimmon. Such a cute name and it describes the color perfectly. Non-drying, long-lasting lip color at the crazy cheap prices that wet n wild is known for...what more could you ask for?
Have you tried the Mega Last Lip Colors? What are your thoughts on them? What about the new colors...any that catch your eye?

When I opened this package from Jordana, I'm pretty sure I did some sort of girly, excited "eeking" or something. I mean, how could I not? These nail polishes are ah-mazing! So sparkly...so soooo sparkly. Then, when I finally got around to doing the swatches it was like the best thing ever. So, just continue to the swatches. You'll see what I mean.
