Get The Look | Electric Glitter Eye Tutorial #KarityBeauty

Hi beauty babes and welcome! Today I am here with a new "get the look" video tutorial featuring a brand, Karity, that is fairly new to the makeup market. I'd heard of this brand a few months back, so picked up two of their eyeshadow palettes, to try, while I was at IMATS. On that note...If you would like to see everything I purchased at IMATS, check out my Haul Video here.

Anyways, from what I had heard Karity is supposed to be a brand that offers affordable MAC Dupes. But I actually found the palettes I picked up, the Matte & Smokey Palettes, reminiscent of the Urban Decay Electric Palette. ♥ I will talk more about that in the video at the end of this post, I hope you will give it a view! In addition to the tutorial for this look, I do also include swatch comparisons of the two Karity Palettes to the Urban Decay Palette. ♥
About this look... Well as you can see its a super "electric" and dramatic look. It definitely wont be for everyone. Its just something fun and different, and I really enjoyed creating it! I have been so into vibrant looks lately. PLUS it feels like it had been super long since I've done such a "wild" look, so I was itching to do one again! And when I happened to see this photo of Jeffree Star and Manny MUA - I was super inspired to re-create Jeffrees look. ♥

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Eye Pencils | Swatches + Review

Hey beauty babes and welcome! I am excited to share with you an awesome PR package I received recently from MAKE UP FOR EVER filled with all 20 of their new Aqua XL Eye Pencils! Below you will find photo swatches, but I also have a video review that includes live swatches as well. Be sure to watch it at the end of this post. ♥

 Recently MUFE has teamed up with Charli XCX for their NEW Aqua XL Eye Pencils. This is "THE FIRST OF AN ONGOING SERIES OF ARTISTIC COLLABORATIONS THAT HIGHLIGHT STAGE ARTISTS AND THEIR MAKEUP ARTISTS." Read more (here)!

Launching in May, the Aqua XL pencil is an enhanced version of the existing Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Pencil, which is a part of the brand’s water-resistant franchise. The pencils come in a range of 20 vibrant hues, including various shades of blue, green, purple and pastels, along with traditional colors like black and brown. The pencils come in five finishes — Matte (M), Diamond (D), Satin (S), Iridescent (I) and Metallic (Me). An updated formula containing emollient oils and mango butter is said to make for a smoother application, and the pigment is more intensely saturated.

Super exciting right!? These pencils are AMAZING. The colors are extremely vibrant and pigmented, but also smooth and creamy and apply like a dream. In addition to all that, these pencils are budge proof, smudge proof and water resistant too! ♥ The formula does allow a small window of time to smudge out the color after first application, if you desire. But once its fully set it wont move - very impressive! If I had any complaint at all its that I wish these had names rather than just reference numbers - which are a lot harder to remember offhand. ;)
Keeping the liners organized by color... The following featured above from left to right are:
M-26 
M-22 & I-32
S-20 & I-24
 Left to Right:
S-50 & M-14
M-60 & D-10
D-62 & M-12
 Top to bottom: M-30, I-34 & I-36
 Left to Right:
M-92 & M-16
M-80 & M-40
I-90 & Me-42
And for anyone curious about the rest of the makeup I am wearing...
-MUFE Aqua XL Liner 'M-26'
-It Cosmetics SuperHero Mascara 
-MBA Cosmetics Shimmerlights Highlight 'Stellar' 
Lip Pencil in Passion + Mega Matte Lipstick in Malibu.

Be Natural Organics | Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel

**Thank you to Be Natural Organics for sponsoring this post! And a huge thank you to my readers for supporting the sponsors that make Agape Love Designs possible.
Hello beauty babes and welcome, as some of you may or may not know, I have partnered with Be Natural Oragnics to feature their products on my youtube channel and social sites. Continuing on with their Anti-Aging Collection, I am featuring their Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel- $16.00 for 4 oz. (also available in a try it size here for just $4).

SKIN TYPE Normal, problematic, oily & combination skin.

Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel loosens dead cells from the skin's surface by dissolving stubborn glue-like substances that refuse to release dead skin cells through normal cleansing.

Aspen bark extract, rich in salycin, softens and loosens thick, dry skin, while Bamboo extract contains both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. The result is exposing fresher cells for optimal absorption of serums and moisturizers.

BENEFITS:

Anti-Aging
-Creates an environment for optimal absorption
-Stimulates new skin cell production
-Increases collagen and elastin formation
-Decreases fine lines and creates a finer skin texture
-Decreases hyper pigmentation, creating a more even skin color

Acne-Prone
-Stimulates new skin cell production
-Helps destroy acne causing bacteria
-Helps lift uneven color created from previous acne
-Helps generate a smoother skin texture
-Stimulates blood flow, creating a healthy glow


WHAT I AM WEARING:
Eyeshadow: LE Highlight in 'Amuck' from: Bitter Lace Beauty
Lips: Mega Matte Lipstick in 'Vintage' from MBA Cosmetics
