Greetings from the best-decorated catacomb I’ve seen in a long time, fellow rogues!
Yes, that’s right, your trusty rogue guide to all things beauty related has rummaged around in her stash and unearthed a rainbow of makeup for your perusal!
The inspiration for today’s post was twofold – first, I saw a gorgeous post by Christine on Temptalia, in which she sampled a rainbow of beautiful products. At the end of the post, she made the mistake (?) of asking her readers what our favourite rainbow of beauty products is, and, being the rogue that I am, I shamelessly stole the opportunity to present my answer on my own blog! If, by some freak chance, you haven’t yet visited Temptalia, I urge you to drop everything and do so. Go on, I’ll hold off the drow for a bit…
Back? Excellent. :-D Where was I? Ah, yes. Inspiration…
Then, as I was gathering up the makeup to take the photos, I remembered that we are in the midst of the Pride Festival here in my corner of Middle Earth, making a rainbow-themed post satisfyingly appropriate for the season as well :-)
I won’t be including any reviews here, but some of these products are in the works. If you see something you’d like a full review of, let me know in the comments!
A Rogueish Rainbow
Red was a fairly easy place to start for me, although I did want to include only things that I hadn’t featured on this blog before – my adorable minature Lancôme lipstick came to the rescue! Orange would have been impossible for me without the generosity of the peerless treasure chest opener Karen, who sent me this outrageously pigmented Mirenesse lip bomb. Yellow is actually impossible in my collection – I literally own nothing yellow! So instead you’re getting a yellow-toned gold, the glittering dragon-hoard replicating Goldeneye from OPI.
Green was another slightly tricky one – as you’ve seen from my previous post, my wishlist of greens is longer than my stash list of greens, but I selected this shimmering loose eyeshadow from Bare Minerals for its appropriate name. Blue, indigo and violet, by contrast, are not difficult at all to find in this rogue’s hoard. OK, my hoard might be modest enough to fit into a regular size shoebox, but what it lacks in overall magnitude it makes up for in blues and purples. We have Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Chaos, a mesmerising desert-sky blue, the indigo shade from my trusty Maybelline Hyper Diamonds Palette (BU-1), and my (already half-finished) Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in the very appropriate Sugar Violet.
What do you tink? Have you tried any of these products? What’s your personal rainbow of favourite beauty items? :-)
Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps!
