The Chinese Dragon Tattoo Experience

Are you contemplating in getting a dragon tattoo and yet still undecided in what specific design to use? Well this article may sway your decision in favor of the Chinese dragon tattoo. A dragon is a mythical creature that plays a significant part in the Chinese history and culture. The dragon signifies mystical and lordly dominance and are said to be living in majestic divine kingdom. According to legends, they can also change shape and form and can create cloudbursts at their will.

With dragons being so popular and revered in the culture of China, it is even assumed that the Chinese people are dragon descendants. Another affirmative impact of dragons in China is the belief that dragons have the pearl of wisdom. Soon enough the pearl of wisdom possessed by dragons represents the pureness of the thoughts of the king and the flawlessness of his decrees.

Even in religion, dragons have a big role. In Chinese Buddhism, the dragon is the protector of Buddha as well as the laws of Buddhism. Dragons are etched on both on tomb walls and temple doors. They provide shield to any evil spirits that lurks around these places.

These are just some of the wondrous characteristics of the Chinese dragon. If you think you are somehow in parallel with these powerful features then the Chinese dragon tattoo is for you, a Chinese dragon tattoo that portrays a sense of loyalty and dedicated among others. You never know, the magic of the Chinese dragon can stroke your life with strength and power.

MAC pigment samples

My dear postman Pat (or whoever *g*) brought me my MAC pigment samples. I really don't know if they are genuine, but at least most of them are great.

Here's swatches and reviews of:
  • Cornflower
  •  Full Force Violet
  •  Cocomotion
  •  Reflects Rust
  •  Teal
Oh wow. So pigmented, and stunnung shade!
Unfortunately this is almost exact dupe of Mschic Heart Throb:

Mschic is more finer dust, Cornflower is maybe a bit more pigmented. But they're really quite the same.

Full Force Violet

HUUUUUUUGE disappointment. I really don't know if this is fake, 'cos this REALLY chalky and powdery. This is almost as bad as my supercheap BeautyUK eyedusts :/ Color is nice, but I really can't do nothing with this. I can wipe it easyli off even when it's applied over from paint pot Painterly.
 I really actually hope that this is fake, else MAC makes something really crappy.

This is gorgeous. Warm golden brown, that seems to reflect little bit to the green in some light. But just a liitle bit. This is sort of mixture of my MuS Gold and Inka:

Reflects Rust
Glitter. I'm sure this looks great on top of some e/s, but since it has no pigment on itself, alone it's just a glitter.  It's really fine, and pretty shade, but nothing mindblowing. Not gonna buy the full jar ;D
OMG.OMG. Like omg. OH MY GOD.This is UNBELIAVEBLE. So vibrant and pigmented and all! 
I thought this would be like my Gosh Aquatic, but this is more greener that Aquatic.But then it's also bluer than Gosh Emerald and Green Python:
I want MORE! *g*

Bad air and LOTD

First my lousy attempt to create Air:

I'm not satified to it. It has cotton wool, Gosh Blue Whale, Gosh Spa and Gosh Golddust, and lashes I tuned.

Then my LOTD:

MAC Blackground p/p on lid
MAC Painterly p/p on upper crease
MAC One-off on lid
MAC Fresh Green Mineralize lighter shade on crease and above
Hint of Gosh Blue Whale on crease
MuS Goldglow on highlight
Mschic creme eyeliner
Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara

Female Tattoo Gallery - Hot Tattoos Especially For Women

Normally female tattoos or feminine designed tattoos that are usually found in female tattoo gallery are becoming increasingly familiar and favored by women. This is largely due to the many celebrities who publicly sported tattoos that caused it to be more socially acceptable.

This female tattoo gallery has tattoos that are normally smaller and more beautiful. Hot tattoos favored by women include a butterfly, a flower or a Celtic design. These tattoos that are sported by women are also milder and not aggressive-looking. They tend to have thinner lines.

Today, women are slowly going for larger tattoos. Stars, hearts, roses and tribal tattoo designs on the lower back are becoming hot and gradually being asked for by females. Thus, a female tattoo gallery will have these designs as they are becoming more and more experimental in these new designs.

There are reports from many tattooists and female tattoo gallery that when musicians and artists get their tattoos, there is usually a particular popular placement on the body. They like to get the designs done on their lower back and stomach which suggest that most women want their tattoos to be obscure and the placement will show it to be a sexier place.

Highly recommended places by many female tattoo gallery is the lower back and the ankle as they are more popular.

Lower back tattoos are very sexy and hot for women as it seldom shows, but can be flaunted when the woman bends over. This sudden glimpse of a lower back tattoo on a woman will get you the tantalizing feeling that you're seeing something you shouldn't.

Many female tattoo gallery usually shows small ankle tattoos. Other tattoo location can be the shoulders; usually the left shoulder is considered the more feminine side. Shoulder tattoos can also be great when you're wearing a tank top or halter top in the summer.

Eventually when these tattoos come into concern, it's what makes you feel good that matters. It's going to last for quite some time so you may want to choose a really good design in the female tattoo gallery.

Nowadays, you can really get many good tattoo designs and customized pieces that tattoo artists can do. So don't be tempted to get those tattoos designs that will date really fast and end up looking sloppy.

Usually female tattoos in any female tattoo gallery are very sexy and hot. Just do a search for "female tattoos" on the internet and you can get more ideas regarding these tattoo designs.

More of Parfait Amour

I'v been a little disapointed to Parfait Amour's color payout.
It doesn't really "pop" with Painterly paint pot. So I decided to do some test with different base's:

With Blackground p/p it becomes really dark. It nice, but it isn't quite the same color anymore.
With white base it just doesn't work. I becomes too greyish and blueish, kinda looses the purple.
With Painterly it's nice, but I feel like something is missing.
I had this crazy idea to try something red as a base. So I took my Gosh Tropical eye pencil in Pure Pink, and applied Parfait Amour on that.
And WOW. It really pops! It's really intense as you can see from the swatch picture above.

And this is how Parfait Amour looks on the lid:

My camera apparently washed some of the colors, Blackground based was really darker that it looks like. And of course pictures won't show the little chameleon effect that Parfait Amour has live.

"Off the Wall" - Fashion Photography in Black & White

August 30, 2009 (Winchester, MA) Inspired by portrait photographer Richard Avedon’s practice of shooting and editing for the wall versus the page, this group show features 12 New England-based photographers capturing fashion in classic black and white.

The photographers included in the show are Tracy Aiguier, Sadie Dayton, Conor Doherty, Cig Harvey, William Huber, Michael Khachadoorian, Kim Kennedy, Liz Linder, Jorg Meyer, Bob Packert, Phil Porcella and Francine Zaslow.

What constitutes a fashion image constantly evolves. Frivolous, glamorous, sumptuous, witty, painterly, and stark, fashion - and images of it - evoke emotion. Photography and fashion have moved to center stage during the past 50 years, as advertising simultaneously chronicles and shapes our visual culture.

The show runs from September 14 through November 1 at the satellite exhibition space: The Griffin Museum @ Digital Silver Imaging, 11 Brighton Street, Belmont MA. The gallery is the newest of the museum’s satellite locations. The opening reception is October 2, 6-8 PM, to coincide with Boston Fashion Week.

The show is juried and curated by Paula Tognarelli , executive director of the Griffin Museum; Jay Calderin, founder of Boston Fashion Week; and J. Sybylla Smith, wardrobe stylist and owner of GoTo Design Studio.

“Off The Wall” is the title of a book, a movie, and a record-breaking album. It is slang for unconventional, bizarre, manic, absurd, inappropriate, unpredictable, and eccentric,’’ says Smith. ``It aptly reflects the stylistic range of these large format true silver gelatin prints produced by Digital Silver Imaging.”

Smith gives a brief tour of the exhibit at the gallery in Belmont on October 4 at 4 PM, followed by an intimate behind-the-scenes discussion on style and fashion concepts in today's fashion photography. The talk is open to the public and free. .

The gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 5:30 PM, to mirror Digital Silver’s hours, or by appointment. Call 781-729-1158.

Look closer.

So, let's get back to my yesterdays haul for a moment:

There is:

MAC Fresh Green Mineralize eye shadow:

I really didn't plan to buy this, but I'm currently having this thing for greens, so I decided to buy it.

I'm not so sure about the darker side, which isn't IMO green especially not FRESH green, it's more of brownish, grayish green (-ish). But the lighter green is just perfect.

MAC One-off eyeshadow from Starflash collection

I didn't plan to buy this one either, but I wanted something really GREEN.
I was pondering between MAC humid and this, and finally took this one. I thought that Humid was bit too close of Gosh Emerald.

This is green, maybe not as bright green I was looking for in the first place, but best green that I found right now.

MAC Parfait Amour eyeshadow

This one was on my shopping list, since I really am a purple freak *g*
I just love how this color is sort of chameleon, blue and purple and all. It actually reminds me of my wedding dress.

I have to admit, that this wasn't quite as cool on my lid that it was in swatch. It went really blue on the lid, not purple as I thought it would go.
I'm still happy I bought it. *g*

MAC Painterly paint pot

As much as a love my Gosh Love That Ivory as a primer, there are times when I don't want to use shimmer as a primer. So this was kinda MUST to shop.

There isn't really anything else I could say about it. It's a foundation that comes in little jar, and it's not meant for the whole face LOL.

Makeup Store Ra cybershadow

I have had a thing for getting a good yellow e/s for a while. The MuS Sunset eyedust was a disappointment, so I've drooling over this Ra.

It's yellow, yes, maybe not as bright as it looks in the jar. Quite good pigmentation, but considering the price (15 euros / ~$21,5) I would expect REALLY good quality. This turns a bit dirty colored on the lid.
But anyway, it's yellow.

Mschic creme eyeliner

Lately I've been using my Blackground paint pot as a liner *blush*, so I thought it would finally be time to try real creme eyeliner. Since I'm not apparently getting my MAC Blacktrack fluidliner or anything else from that seller (long story short = She apparently stole my money), I decided to give this a try.

I've been using a liquid eyeliner for years now, so change is not gonna be easy. This felt a bit sticky, I don't know if their suppose to be a bit sticky? I really can't say much of this, maybe I'll come back to it some time.

Mschic Grass Mineral eyeshadow

Matte green. This was cheap, so I bought it.

It's pigmented like all the other Mschic products that I've used.

Mschic Heart Throb

Oh so cool!
This is both blue AND purple. Yet another chameleon from Mschic, just like the Mint Frost Chocolate I have too. This is just gorgeus. And pigmented, and it was cheap too.

Mschic Bright Gloss Bright Purple

I really don't know why I actually bought this, maybe the little purple freak in me striked again. The bottle is just too awesome colored *g*
Too bad it isn't purple in the lips:

It's just a gloss.
There was also green, orange and yellow lipglosses, but I left them to be *g*

Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation

I went throught a awful trouble to get this.
There wasn't Revlon at Stockmann, neither Sokos (both sell almost everything you can imagine). Then friendy woman from Stockmann called from someone to ask what store sells Revlon in Finland, and I found out that Anttila is supposed to sell Revlon. I was kinda reliefed, since there is an Anttila on my way to the trainstation.
So, I went to that Anttila, looked around, and guess what? They don't sell Revlon at there.
So I head to the other Anttila that is in the center of Helsinki.
Too bad that after I've run in there, I find put that there is major sale, where you can buy 3 and pay of only 2.
So the ques were several meters long. I seach for Revlon, find it, find out that there isn't Ivory for oily skin, take Ivory for normal skin, and then I go to the end of the line.
It was a long wait.

But, I got my Colorstay, and I'm quite satisfied to it.
I was impressed when I hugged my husband, and my forehead didn't leave any marks on the black shirt. *g*

Only negative thing I currently have to say, is the bottle. There isn't anything to help the stuff to come out of the bottle. No pump or anything.

But anyway, here some swatches of the eyeshadows:

And one thing abou Mschic jars:

What's with the lids? Why on EARTH every lid needs to be different? Really annoing.

Then my yesterdays makeup:

The next thing is really AWESOME:
When I went to Stockmann, and their MAC counter, the girl in there REMEMBERED me from the last time. She started to compliment my makeup, she even complimented my makeup to her workpartner. Her opinion was that I should come and work with them to MAC counter *g*
I was like THIIIIIIS happy *g*

And finally, here's mu today's makeup:
