 As usual, I used my gel eyeliner from Mac, Fluidline in Blacktrack and applied my bright red lipstick from Mac.
I think it's a good combination because I didn't use too much makeup on my eyes, only one taupe shadow to give more definition to my flat monolid, eyeliner and mascara and that's it! The effect is quite dramatic! Love it!
So it's not too heavy that's why you can wear red lips.

Modern Red French Manicure

It's probably not the first time you see this Modern Red French Manicure, I already did a black one a long long time ago with false black nails and UV gel.

I like to change the traditional white/prink french because I'm a girl, I always want to try something new and different!

It's definitely not something you usually see but I think it's still wearable, especially with red because red is a classic. Just keep in mind to wear neutral colors for the rest of your look!

It's discrete, simple, elegant and girly at the same time.

To achieve this manicure, you just have to be patient and precise. Let the light pink dry completely.
What I like to do, I do my first 2 coats 1 day, and do the rest the day after. Why? Because I use the round sticker of the nail form to shape the red tip and if my first coats are not dry, the polish will come with the sticker, and you don't want to restart 2 or 3 times...like me!!

Don't worry if you don't understand how I do my nails, the video tutorial is HERE!

My thoughts about Sigma Brushes

Friday, August 26, 2011




I was looking for some new brushes to apply my foundation, especially a kabuki brush for my foundation, a new angle brush to replace my chitty one and an electrical cleansing brush for my blackheads and my prominent pores...so glam! 

I was quite skeptical about Sigma brushes because all the Youtube's beauty gurus are constantly talking (too much) about this brand, and to be honest, lots of them are not honest all the time, especially when they are affiliates...I have often been disappointed by the misleading advertising that some girls do. Too many advertises kills the advertise and the brand. 

I'm not going to lie or to be hypocrite, I do have advertises and some affiliate links on my blog but I don't  do false reviews about some random brands or products I don't like. I hate to be fooled, so I'm not doing that myself, that's why I tell you the truth about my relationship with this brand.

After I tried my Sigma brushes, I applied to become a Sigma affiliate because I'm loving it...let's jump to the rest of the post, I'm going to explain why I'm in love!
Thanks to my banner or my links, you'll have a free gift with $30 purchase, so don't forget it!


I finally found 6 brushes and 1 cleansing polish tool. I bought products I wanted for a long time. So good point, they have a large range of products. I'll make a new post my the cleansing tool very soon.



My haul came with a nice eyeshadow set. Once again, I was very surprise by it's quality. Very intense shades and nicely pigmented, Everything I like!



This is everything I had with my purchase.


From left to right:












The F25 tapered face brush is one of my favorite brush because this is a Go-To brush. I love to use it for my powder foundation and blush. Thanks to the small angle it's a precise tool, you can use it arround the nose area quite easily, you can also use it for contouring your face and because it's a big brush, you can apply your loose powder very quickly to set your makeup.

Only one regret, I thought it will be bigger.



The round kabuki brush F82 is my favorite brush of the set I ordered. It's the softest brush I have ever tried. I would never guess it's synthetic hair. It really even the foundation. It's precise and works well around the nose area. I love love love this brush, moreover this brush is too cute!




The E25 blending brush is also a good brush. It does a good job especially to soften harsh lines. The quality of the hair is similar to Mac 217 brush. It's just a little bit smaller.

What I like is the texture of the hair. It looks natural but I'm not sure. I like to use it to apply my cream eyeshadows.



The E65 small angle brush is awesome to draw a big and sexy cat eye. I already made a video using it. It's perfect for beginners because it's a dense, precise brush to create a clean line.


I use it with my Mac Fluidline, but I also use it with pressed powder eyeshadow for my eyebrows and eyeliner. It creates a softer eyeliner line, I will show you guys how to use it. I want to make a new videos of different technics I use to apply eyeliner.


I already have 2 small angle brush and this one is my fave. Because has I explained it's dense, so you can create something more precise even if you are trembling :)


The E05 eyeliner brush is not for beginners. I like it a lot because hair is hard and this is a very precise tool but if you don't master your eyeliner technique it can become horrible!



The L05 Lip liner is pretty, I thought it was a small brush but you can assemble the metallic part to the cap...I'm dummy sometimes...

As the other brushes, the quality is so nice, precise and efficient. Nothing more to say about it.




♡Overall: 

♡♡♡♡♡/5

♡Pros: 

+ Quality!!!

+ Half the price of Mac brushes

+ Large range of brush sizes and accessories

+ Fast delivery, 3 days


♡Cons: 

- Nothing to declare with my first purchase


Bobby Brown Modern CLassic Lip And Eye Palette

Bobby Brown Modern CLassic Lip And Eye Palette, boddy brown, eyeshadow, asian eyes, asian monolid, makeup tutorial, makeup reviews, product reviews, cosmetics, makeu up, makeup, maquillage, tuto, yeux, asiatique, futilitiesandmore.blogspot.com, futilities and more, futilitiesandmore

Few month ago, I felt in love with this Bobby Brown Modern Classic palette. I was looking at their website and wanted to find a go to neutral palette. I'm still very happy with my Too faced Natural Palette but I wanted to find something  prettier and handier. I have to say, Too faced packing looks really poor and heavy sometimes...

So here it is, my Bobby Brown haul with his huge amount of very very interesting samples. 5 decent size samples. So much more interesting than my last august Birchbox...I'll post my box soon. So disappointed again about this concept.

The packaging itself is pretty...good point!

When I saw this palette, I was completely charmed because it has everything I love. It's small, elegant, and so convenient! 10 super pretty shades, 4 lipglosses and 2 mini brushes.

This palette is so elegant, so feminin, perfect for your bag and to dress-up your look.

As you can see, the shade ranging is interesting. You can create different looks, from romantic looks with this light shimmery pink to intense evening look with this charcoal shadow.

Lipgloss ranging is pretty decent too.

The concept of having folding panels is good but in reality not a so good idea. When I opened this box for the first time, the mini brushes felt and ruined my lipglosses. Keep in mind to keep the plastic paper to protect your glosses.

My feeling about the quality of these eyeshadows? Very disappointed.
Ok, the packaging is great, colors are beautiful but OMG there is only one or two shades which are nicely pigmented. The rest is horribly bland and the pigmentation is so poor!!! I've never seen such a bad  pigmentation, even with very cheap drugstore products. You can't barely see the light shimmery shades on your eyes even with several coats.
I'll put some swatches in another post and film it to show you how  bad it is because, really, don't purchase this palette.
The only good shadows are the dark brown color (Espresso), Navy Charcoal and Taffeta. The rest is crap. For me, it doesn't worth $75, such a waste of money!
The only way to achieve a nice color is to use a sponge and apply a good amount of product. The mini brush of the kit doesn't works at all.

I have the same comment to do with  lipglosses. It's sheer, so you don't see any difference between the darker color and the rest, just a slight difference between them, but so tiny...and it's horribly sticky!

The only good thing in this haul was the 5 samples. A very generous amount of product with really decent sizes.

Loved this makeup remover, nice to remove waterproof mascara. The oily consistency is not my fave but it works well.

Love this crystal lip gloss. I use it a lot, but I won't purchase it. It's only a clear lipgloss, so I won't spend $17 for that. It's a theft!

Some close-up

The color is pretty but you can't see this plum color on your lips at all and forget the shimmers...

Espresso, the only good pigmented shadow. It's a matte shade.
