HAUL & LOOK: Pureluxe Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadows

You know, i was going through my computer and i actually found photos i had taken previously for this blog, and i never ended up posting them? So I'll be posting them now! The first one will be about my PureLuxe order, which happened at the beginning of January this year.

You can order PureLuxe HERE! :)

My extra sticky package...was a b*tch to open :(

I ordered 21 sample size eyeshadows and one moisture spritz! it said on the website that it was ideal for foiling the eyeshadows. For those of you who dont know what foiling is, its when you mix the eyeshadow with water or a suitable liquid to intensify the colour.

This was the most stingy amount of product out of the lot. Surprisingly they gave alot less since i had to pay more for this one because it was considered a 'SuperLiner', so the sample pot was $2 something instead of $1 something.

So yeah that was my purchase...on to the look i did for it...

NOTE! before you go on to see the look i did, note that i was having a HORRIBLE skin week! i looked so gross then, luckily my skin has healed up and is back to its clear self. But viewer beware if you hate a spotty face :(

Okay so i didnt end up uploading my "before foundation" photos, but in alot of shots you can see alot of unsightly blemishes coming through!!

Im using my very old, discontinued, avon 'colour trend' creme eyeshadow, just as a taupe eyeshadow base

using my PureLuxe 'Peach Champagne' on the lid

Contouring the crease with a PureLuxe Liner powder in "Forbidden"

Blend out with "Elysium" shadow

Using "BL Asp" on the inner corner

define the brows very softly with a soft black

using my Touche Magique concealer by loreal thats like WAY too light for me to highlight under the brow

pat and blend :)

just some subtle dusky blush, i probably used my everyday minerals "Swimming Pool" blush, my favourite matte colour

Lining my eyes with cream eyeliner and an angled brush from 'The Body Shop', but you can use liquid if you prefer

MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Speed Dial. My first MAC lipstick, a gorgeous blue toned pink colour!!!

add a gorgeous pink gloss with noticeable blue iridescent sparkles on top!

Using a lipbrush by The body shop

Hope you liked it!

By the way, I've dyed my hair back to Black since i took these photos.


  1. I love this look and you have amazing skin. I don't even see the "blemishes" your talking about. :)

  2. If you click on the image and it should enlarge, then u can see the dry flakes, not that i want you to do that though :P haha. but thanks! :D
