Style Black FOTD - Gilt-y as charged!

Sunday, October 04, 2009

I had a play with Style Black's Gilt by Association last night when the "entertainment" that was X-Factor was over. I'm really glad I bought it and had no problem with fallout at all which I was pleasantly surprised at. I applied GAB by patting it all over the lid using my 242 brush after spraying it (the 242) with Fix+ to wet the e/s. The greasestick makes a great base for it to stick to and wasn't too hard to blend out either.

My only concern was that when I lined my waterline with the greasestick I felt the same irritation I felt when I use my pearlglide liner in Russian Black. The glitter has a tendency to irritate so if you have sensitive eyes be careful as I can feel it every time I blink!

I was on the phone for a couple of hours and by the time I had finished rolling around my bed sharing my life story, my hair was a state and most of my lip colour had gone. I couldn't be bothered to reapply it as it had gone 2am and I just wanted to take my face off at that stage.

Doing close up FOTD pics has also made me realise how much weight I've piled on in New York. I've eaten nothing but crap, with the exception of Chauds Mum's meals for 2 weeks and it shows. My face looks pregnant!!! I took action yesterday when doing my food shop and bought lots of healthy food so I'm on a bit of a health kick at the moment to de-bloat.

Finally, stupid me forgot that I need a US to UK adapter in order for my new camera to work and was reminded when I switched it on and the battery promptly died *rolls eyes* So for the meantime it's back to my crappy Casio which snaps my skintone in every shade of black without being asked to as demonstrated below!

Sorry for the lacklustre expressions! LOL

Loving this look on you, very nice! I have the MES in Cinderfella and did a look with it for my birthday party. Everyone loved it. You have me wanting this one now but I am not sure b/c I have the NYX e/s in Smokie Mountain and it is very similar, almost a dupe. :)

Leanne said...

Oh hay there hot stuff ;D glad you're back!
Gaahhh GBA was the only thing about Style Black I really wanted so I thought I'd pass.. now I want it even more! D<

Super gorgeous look!!

Abimars said...

This is totally off topic! where do you get your revlon colorstay in caramel from? I've been using BlackUP but I thought I'd try it as I've read some rave reviews (is it true it doesn't rub off on clothes) I've tried about 4 boots but all I could find is mahogany which is way too dark for me

VexInTheCity said...

@ Mz More - Thank you :-) If ithe YX one is practically a dupe, save your money and use that instead.

@ Leanne - Cheers hon. That's so typical, lol

@ Sara - Thank you!

@ AnnaV- No seriously, I've out on loads of weight. Need to shut up and just do something about it!

@ Tina-mbc - Make up has a lot to answer for!! LOL xx

@ Deborah - Cheers!

@ Sofrolushes - Thanks girl!

@ Randomlondongirl - Thanks. Sketch is a fab colour. I dunno why I never owned it earlier.

@ Erin - Thanks sweetie!

@ Rai - Cheers hon

@ Laura - Thanks hon. It's called Style Black.

@ Beauty Addict - Thank you :-)

@ Abimars - I get it in NY cos you can't buy Caramel here which is just so stupid. Have a look on Ebay, you'll def find it on there too.
