Face of the Day ~ catch up!

Due to not having access to a good camera most of my efforts with make up have only be documented on Instagram, but I thought I would do a round up of my recent favourite looks!

I love this look! It's like a cute little nymph! And the wig complimented it perfectly! This was for the opening night of a play I wrote and directed, so I wanted to make an effort.

Just a day when I felt like spending some time on my face. There's something really clean looking about this, although I ended up adding a colour similar to my lips under my eyes to really tie everything together.

For one of my best friend's hen night we went to a cabaret show, so I really wanted to glam up to the max. I had the whole day to get ready so it was really chill. I'm really happy with how this turned out!

This is the outfit from my second day at the London MCM Comic Con. Took me long enough to actually get this post together, just in time for me to prepare my next outfit for October's MCM outfit! I know the photos aren't great and the background certainly isn't atmospheric but I took them on my tiny camera just before heading out - sometimes you just don't have time for a fancy photo shoot with an SLR!
Either way, I based this outfit around those horns that my other half got me for my birthday last year. I don't like it as much as my white deer look but this one was really comfy! This was another attempt at some Shironuri makeup - I am currently obsessed with white liquid eyeliner! Lawd, that stuff makes everything look cool! Although I wouldn't recommend Illamsqua's one...it has the strangest texture when dry.
Sorry again for the continued absence from here - I've got more free time coming up and access to a camera so hopefully I'll be picking up regularity!

Wishlist ~ Birthday wants!

With my birthday being next month (14th August), I thought another wishlist post was entirely warranted! Right?? Especially because after that date I won't be able to identify with Taylor Swift's "22" anymore, and that really deserves some kind of consolation prize. There are of course a few 'sensible' things I want, like a tripod, or some professional lighting for video auditions (turns out precariously balancing your camera on a pile of boxes and books isn't as easy as it looks), but this is more of a frivolous wishlist! Let me know what's currently on yours!

1. Collectif ~ Nieve Pillbox Hat, £22.50
With my retro wardrobe slowly expanding, what I like lack at the moment is appropriate head wear, and this is just perfect! This smaller, sweet version is nice too.

2. Clear Vision By Apatico ~ Holographic Harness Belt, £49.65
Even though I have been in love with the holographic trend as long as it has existed, I don't really own anything holographic. I think this would definitely be a great start...Or this bad boy. Not holographic, but awesome anyway.

3. Glitters For Dinner ~ Sailor Moon Inspired Set, $85
Because duh. (although I still want this baby).

4. Kat Von D ~ Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, $20
Like, just any of them. Ugh. Or anything from this brand actually...just gimme Kat Von D! Her palettes look amazing as well. And her normal lipsticks...want all!

5. Dita Von Teese ~ Madame X bra, £40
This is the under-wired version, which I prefer to the non-wired one. Ugh, so so pretty. Not passionate about the underwear but the set does look really beautiful. Dat bra though.

6. Garbage of the Galaxy ~ 'Not Of This Earth' Banner, £11.83
Recently I've been properly decorating my room to just the way I like it. This would be a perfect addition! I have just the empty wall space for it...

I went to the London MCM Comic Con a few weeks ago and because I didn't have the funds or enough forward planning to do any actual cosplay, I decided to do some themed outfits instead, you know, put some kind of effort in! For Saturday I decided on a white deer theme, and Sunday (which is coming in another post) I went for a black dragon theme.
So for my white deer theme I went for a floaty, ethereal look, which I obviously couldn't have completed without Hysteria Machine's amazing antlers! I ordered them very last minute and they still arrived right on time! I was so happy! I also took this weekend as an opportunity to try out some shironuri make up, inspired by Minori (look her up! Her make up is pure art!). I only did half a white face because I didn't know how it would fair in a hot room for lots of hours. I also had a limited amount of time; there was a lot of extra detail I would have liked to have added but my friends grew impatient so I had to keep it limited. I also need practise applying lashes, because I'm really bad at it! And find a white powder to set my face paint, because I feel like talcum powder is slightly yellow and probably was the wrong thing to use. All in all, I learnt many a thing!

Swatches & Review ~ NEW Portland Black Lipstick Company.


New Portland Black Lipstick Company colours! I'm so excited! These have been a long time coming but they're here! They're here! Along with the new shades comes new packaging as well, which I love. This review was supposed to have been done like a year ago now, so I am sorry for the delay. Also excuse the state of my skin, but since this is a make up review and not skin product one, I'm not going to dwell, because it's really irrelevant and editing it would be a waste of time! I'm already late enough as it is! The swatches could be better, and for that I do apologise, but unfortunately I am currently without a camera so I had to make do with what I took before, which is substandard. But never mind all that! On with the review!

First off, a comparison between the old packaging and the new packaging.
They're still using lip balm tubes, due to the very soft consistency of the product but the new tubes come shrink-wrapped which gives such a great high end feel (I can't remember if the old ones did but it's a cool feature anyhow). The tubes are black, which I love and the labels are more waterproof and feel less like paper, which means less grubby looking tubes. They're also slightly redesigned their logo which looks classy and appropriate to the brand. As always, the ingredients are listed on the back. All in all this is a great upgrade which reflects the company's growing business!

Imitation Cherry
Classic red.
A very traditional, classic but still lovely red. For all you pin-up gals out there who like your ingredients all natural, then here is the lipstick for you! Very pigmented and a lovely formula.

Thee Psychic Berry 
A dark, blackened berry red.
I love this kind of dark, vampy shade. It's one of PBLC's more 'normal' colours, but it's bold enough to be exciting. However, it is very similar to their previous Undead Red (comparison swatch below!). The consistency is creamy and like with all PBLC lipsticks, there is a peppermint scent, however this can be excluded upon request! This is the shade out of all of the new ones that I reach for the most often.

Graey
 A light, opaque grey.
This colour on its own creates this curious effect of cancelling out my lips, it's very strange but has a lot to do with my skin tone. However, a really great tool if you want to create your own custom colours. Grey is a massive trend in the indie lipstick community at the moment (e.g. OCC's Sebastian and Lime Crime's Cashmere) so if you want to emulate a colour like those then use this layered with another lipstick. In fact, I may do a post on that at some point!

Abominable
Pure, opaque snow white.
This is the kind of colour I wouldn't wear on its own, unless it was for a specific costume, but I like the idea of using it to lighten other colours. Another unusual use I found for this is as an eyebrow base. Which is to say, when I'm wearing a wig and my eyebrows contrast in a less attractive way, then I paint my eyebrows over with this and then apply an appropriate eye shadow shade on top. Works beautifully due to how insanely pigmented Abominable is! It isn't streaky or chalky at all, which some pastel lip colours can be.


Chthonique
A dark, metallic khaki green.
This bad boy feels so so creamy and smooth upon application, it's a dream. Easy to apply, I'd say slightly less pigmented than some of the other shades, but the staying power is still there and the fade is still lovely to look at, even after hours. There's something really organic and foresty to this colour - it's less vibrant and more of a natural green, if that makes sense?


The Coral is Coming from Inside the House
A metallic coral.
One of PBLC's more accessible, mainstream shades. A very pretty, easy colour but I think the metallic gives it that edge that PBLC are known for. Applies like Chthonique, although maybe slightly more sheer.


And now for a few comparison, arm swatches!
Left to right: Artificial Cherry, Thee Psychic Berry and Undead Red
When I first saw Artificial Cherry and Thee Psychic Berry I thought they might be quite similar to each other. I was wrong. However, Thee Psychic Berry did make me think of another PBLC colour, and low and behold, they are very similar indeed. I think Undead Red may be the slightest bit more brown but it's so subtle it's probably not worth having both shades in your collection.

Left to right: The Coral Is Coming From Inside The House, Imitation Cherry, Thee Psychic Berry, Chthonique, Graey and Abominable. 
The main swatches were taken in natural light and these were taken under artificial lighting.

Portland Black Lipstick Company can be found on their website and on Etsy. Each tube of .15oz of product cost £9.46 ($14.00) and I would say is worth every penny. If you're unsure about indie brands, this is where you should start! You can find more swatches of other shades, plus more in depth reviews of the formula here, here, here and here.
