FOTD: Volturi Twilight Lover, Beloved & Obsess Lip Gloss

This is a nice wearable look that I did using the Volturi Twilight Labyrinth Loose Eye Shadows in Beloved and Lover. As well I used Volturi Twilight Enrapture Lip Gloss in Obsess (lip products always look so different in action than swatched ;). I'm still not in love with the lipgloss. The more I use it, the more I don't think it's worth $14 CAD.

This is the complete opposite of what the Volturi would wear, but maybe Jessica? Oh well, it's not inspired by any particular character, but just one way to use the makeup from Volturi Twilight.

  1. That's a beautiful purple! Definitely very Jessica or Alice =)

  2. The purple is really growing on me. I'm going to mix it up with some NYX loose pearl powders next time.

  3. Gorgeous! You look wonderful with purples. They're definitely one of my favourite colours =)

  4. hey there thanks for the post! I just got Lover, Myth and Dawn. When I tried to apply it, the powder ran all over my face...this stuff kept falling down and by the time I'm done, my whole face glitters. I used primer too. This stuff is a bit gritty so I had to rub it with either my finger or a sponge applicator, I tried brush too but I can't stop it from falling to my face. Did u experience this? any tips? thanks!

  5. Hi there,
    I would suggest applying the eye shadow wet and a firm brush (eg. MAC 239 or 242). Be careful to pick up a small amount at a time and use a creamy eye shadow base. eg. NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil or MAC Paint or Paint Pots. HTH :)

  6. thanks for the tips! love ur blog <3 ^_^

  7. Thank you! Good luck with the eye shadow :)
