In no particular order:

Top Ten Tuesday Glitter-page-001

  1. Lit Cosmetics Glitters – No one does glitter like Lit Cosmetics. They offer a staggering array of shades in a variety of glitter sizes. See it in action here and here.
  2. Armani Eyes To Kill Eyeshadows – For a more sophisticated hint of glitter the Armani Eyes to Kill Eyeshadows are one of my favourite options for a complex look in one step. There is just something special about the multidimensional finish these eyeshadows offer.
  3. Rouge Bunny Rouge Loose Glitter Pigment - While the name sounds like these are intense in the glitter department they are actually more of a shimmer finish with the most beautiful complexity.
  4. Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquers – No one does glitter like Deborah Lippmann. Her nail lacquers are unique and of incredible quality. Although she is getting a good run for her money from a lot of brands these days as the world of nail polish continues to improve in terms of both mainstream brands and indie offerings.
  5. The Glitter Shades in Dior Eye Shadow Quints – These glitter pans of goodness are gorgeous on the inner corner of the eye or patted on the lid.
  6. L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold Dust Nail Polishes - Stay tuned for a review on this new line of nail polishes from L’Oreal that have me swooning.
  7. Lancome Artliner 24H Bold Color Precision Eyeliner - These sparkling eyeliners have an incredibly easy to use felt tip applicator and give a beautiful opaque finish with no yucky tightening on the lid. The shade assortment is beautiful. My favourites are the gold, copper, and turquoise.
  8. Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder - These and the Holodiam Powders from Make Up For Ever are excellent quality pure glitters. Love them!
  9. shu uemura Glitter Pressed Eyeshadows – I love the glitter eyeshadows in my she uemura Orange and Pistachio Palette, Mint and Vanilla Palette, and Smoky Velvet Palette. These look stunning patted on top of other shadows for a gorgeous glittering effect or built up for a more opaque finish.
  10. Mally Beauty Eyeshadow Sticks – Champagne is one of my favourite shades for using on the inner corner of my eye. These beautiful glittery budge proof sticks have the most stunning sparkling shades that last all day.

Get the Look ~ Beyoncé at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration by Mally Roncal of Mally Beauty

Superstar mogul and fashion and beauty icon, Beyoncé, sang the National Anthem beautifully during the 2013 Inauguration and it was hard not to notice her gorgois makeup!

Mally and Beyonce

Here are some tips to re-create Beyoncé’s look from famed celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal, who worked with her for this special day. Mally shares her tips and tricks on how to steal this look:

  • To first set the skin, apply my Perfect Prep Poreless Primer all over the face and my Cancellation Concealer directly underneath the eyes.
  • To achieve natural-looking coverage, first, apply my Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation. Next, add a sweep of my NEW Diamond Unpowder that will illuminate the skin followed by brushing on my Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo to the cheeks in order to provide a soft, radiant glow to the skin.
  • To achieve a rich, smokey eye – try my Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply this all over the eyelid and underneath as well. Next, select a few shades from the Mally Beauty In the Buff Palette and sweep that onto the eyelids. Finish the look by applying a small amount of my Age Rebel Shadow Stick in Chocolate Diamond on the bottom lid right under your eyelashes to open up the eye followed by using my Lightwand Eyebrightener to the inner corners to instantly brighten this area. Lastly, to achieve this bold eyeliner at-home, try using the Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in Midnight, layered with the Ultimate Performance Ink Eyeliner (which is exclusive to QVC.com).
  • Compliment this confident eye by pairing it with a mascara that will enhance the overall look – such as the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara and/or my NEW Instant Impact Mascara. To create glossy, Beyoncé worthy lips try my High Shine Lip Gloss in Mally’s Look or Mally’s Baby.
  • And last but not least, before you leave the house, apply the Mally Beauty Face Defender to lock your makeup in place and Perfect Prep Hydrating Under Eye Brightener to make the eyes pop!

Anyone can achieve this easy-to-wear look at home. It works on all ages, skin type and color! These essentials from Mally Beauty can be found on QVC.com and MallyBeauty.com.

Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Sticks in Champagne, Bronze, Saddle Shimmer, Topaz ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

I have discovered a new fool proof product for summer and it’s the Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks. These creamy twist-up pencils last all day and the shades and shimmer are stunning.

Evercolor Shadow Stick is the perfect solution for a quick, long wearing eye that looks incredible all day. It won’t come off until you take it off! You can use it to line and define or create a quick smokey eye. The creamy texture helps to smooth out fine lines. You have complete control with this easy to use stick, so have fun and experiment! Once your beautiful eye look is complete you can be sure it will stay fresh all day long!

The four shades I have literally took my breathe away when I swatched them. They are every bit as breathtaking on the eye. You can wear them fully thick as swiped from the pencil or blend them out for a softer look. They blend together beautifully and I have wore all four shades at once with gorgeous result. I thought I had taken pics but I can’t seem to locate them. Sorry!
Now if you think these shades are nice wait do you here this. There are 21 shades of Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick. TWENTY ONE! That is crazy. I am definitely going to have to pick up some more shades. They retail for $25 and can be found on the Mally Beauty website, QVC, and Beauty.com. I can’t seem to find a way to purchase these in Canada since QVC ships to Canada but not cosmetics. The Mally website does not currenty ship to Canada either. I am inquiring for more information on this and will keep my fellow Canadians posted! *Update The beautiful Tracy from Beauty Reflections has let me know that most Mally items do indeed ship from QVC to Canada. Phew!
