Thursday Guest Post!

My aren’t you a Pretty Zombie

Hello Lovelies!

It has been forever since I have actually done a blog post for Luna and I was honored for her to ask me yet again. In all honestly, I haven’t done a blog post in a while and I needed to get a swift kick to my butt to get me blogging again.  So when Luna asked me was right around the time that My Pretty Zombie was having her anniversary sale and we were discussing all the pretties she had and what we wanted.  That conversation resulted in this eye of the day done with some of my favorite colors from My Pretty Zombie.

Life’s Entropy Cosmos Lipstick in Blackbody vs. MAC Cyber

Hello! My name is Jules, and I consider myself to be a Makeup Enthusiast. I am not a professional by any means, but makeup is definitely my hobby. I enjoy a blend of mainstream and indie makeup, and I love comparing and contrasting the two, especially to find color dupes.

Today I wanted to work with one of the Life’s Entropy Cosmos lipsticks,  a product that was highly coveted, and limited edition. I only snagged samples of most of the collection, but I’m happy that I did! Although there were some complaints about the product (sweating, for the most part)  I was really pleased. I find the formula to be comfortable to wear, and non-drying.

When swatching these, I wanted to see if I had any similar colors in my collection, and I thought that Blackbody would be a close color match for Cyber, a permanent shade in MAC’s lipstick line.

The following swatches were done over bare skin, under a daylight bulb, with flash.

Leftm MAC Cyber; Right, Life's Entropy Blackbody

From the swatches, it looks like Blackbody has more of a brighter red tone to it. Cyber can be worn in a light layer as shown here, or be layered to become a more deeper plum, where it would have less of a red tone, and lose its closeness to Blackbody. In terms of finish, Cyber is more of a matte/satin finish, while Blackbody has more shine to it. Cyber also has a drier texture than Blackbody, and to me, is less comfortable to wear. (However, I wear all products with a lip primer!)

I know the Cosmos lipstick line was supposed to be a line of dupes for some of the shades in the NARS Audacious line, so before you come running to me telling me the obvious dupe for Blackbody, I wanted to see what else might be close! (Also, cheaper!)

I’ve used the True Skin Care Anti-Aging Eye Gel for a couple of weeks now and I like it. It’s a soothing and cooling eye gel that is supposed to also help with under eye circles and help with anti-aging. I have noticed that after using it my eyes look a little less puffy and it most definitely feels good. It’s very cooling. I haven’t notice any difference with under eye circles, but to be honest I don’t have very visible ones so I didn’t expect much of a change. It’s very hydrating without leaving any residue. I like this under eye gel. In general I find that cooling under eye gels tend to burn my eyes but this did not. I like that very much. This is made in the USA in FDA registered facilities and has a money back guarantee. If you aren’t happy with it, just email them and you’ll get your money back!
