Halloween FOTN + OOTN: & I don't ever ever want to grow up I want to keep it going, keep keep it going come on

Can you guess what was my Halloween costume this year?

Miss Mafia Véronique and me 

Geneviève the bunny and me

That's right... I was Pikachu!

Of course, I was working before the party and when I came home (one hour later than what I was planning), I was in a rush and I didn't have the time to do anything over the top makeup-wise, hence why I don't have any proper picture to show you. I have cropped some semi-decent pictures though, and I hope you will be able to get the idea.

I didn't really have a sepcific idea in mind and I didn't find lots of inspiration on the net so I decided to do something simple but still a little more dramatic than my everyday makeup. I wanted something yellow but of course, I didn't have anything yellow in my stash! I rumaged through my mother's makeup and found the Annabelle Studio 4Show Eyeshadow in Eye-Candy that I gave her some times ago and even though I had to really dig the eyeshadow and even wet my brush for it to properly show on my lid, it still appeared more gold than yellow but, oh well! Then I added some black eyeshadow and eyeliner for definition and ta-dah!

For the cheeks, I used a GOSH lipstick which was a really bad idea because even though I applied loose powder on top to set it, it was a sticky mess and it eventually melted and rubbed off. For the nose, I used the same Maybelline eyliner that I used on my eyes, and it wasn't a great idea either because it rubbed off on everything - and everyone - I touched. Oh well!

Melting cheeks and nose


NYC Cover Stick - Green*
Benefit The POREfessional*
Sheer Cover Mineral Foundation SPF 15 - Bisque*
OLAY  Regenerist Eye Touch of Concealer Eye Regenerating Cream *
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder - Bronzer
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush - Rose
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick - Tutti Frutti (cheeks)
NYC Loose Translucent Face Powder - Translucent*


Rimmel Lycra Lash Extender Mascara - Black*
Pari Transforming Eye Gel
Annabelle Single Eyeshadow - Ebony (lid as base, crease, outer corner and lower lashline)
Annabelle Studio Mono Eyeshadow - Graffiti (outer corner)
Annabelle Studio 4Show Eyeshadow - Eye-Candy (yellow color on lid and inner corner)
Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner - Onyx* (waterline and nose)


NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss - La~La~

My costume was quite simple too - it didn't cost me a thing! I simply used things I already had and I cut the ears and tails in cereal boxes.

This is NOT a camel toe, it's a crease!

Yellow tank - Forever21 | Yellow bikini bottom - Wal-Mart | Brown thigths - borrowed from my mother | Lightning earrings - Ardène

Of course, my costume was not complete without a proper manicure, and I got this super cute idea from Holly Ann-Aeree:

Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen - Black*
Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen - Red*
Essie Nail Polish - Really Red
Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Anti-Chip Top Coat*

It wasn't a big party but it was fun! We ate, drank, danced and played Twister... have you tried playing Twister with drunk people? 

A vegetarian plate for me - bread with melted Brie, vegetable mashed potatoes and salad, yum!

Fred the Jedi, Véro and me dancing... LOL

However, I hope it's understandable that I can't simply throw away the products I have previously purchased that have unfortunately been tested on animals - believe me, I wouldn't hesitate if I were rich! My goal is to use up those products but not repurchase them in the future. Also, Gaby's Beauty Blog will no longer accept for review purposes products that have been tested on animals.

  9. Small parties are usually the most fun.

    Awwww you made such a cute costume. Very creative.


  10. You look so cute as Pikachu!!

  11. Ah ha that's sooo cute Gaby that you went as Pikachu (I'm glad you put a picture of his character in your blog post as well since I was going to google him after!). I like how you created your own outfit...I find too many of the adult outfits at sex stores are not well made at all - like, they feel really really cheap for $80-$100/outfit on average.
    I know you really like Twister! No I haven't played Twister period, but it sounds like a lot of fun...except I'm sure I'd always ruin the game soon since I'm not flexible at all LOL
    I love your makeup too! Especially your eye makeup - it seemed to hold up well. I'm glad you had a great time this Halloween :)

  20. How fun, I love halloween parties. I usually go to a club for Halloween but I always have a blast at the pre-party house parties =D


  21. @ Sanya: Merci, j'ai essayé d'être originale et simple tout en étant à la dernière minute ahahah!

    @ Brown Sugar : Merci, contente que tu aimes!

    @Miss Holly : I was thinking about it for a while but I was at the last minute and I wanted something simple so I did it myself (:

    @ Ms Bubu : Je n'ai pas eu le temps de me préparer d'avance non plus avec mon changement de job et la mi-session à l'école, mais je suis tout de même contente de costume! Ahah des têtes de robots, c'est original!

    @ Karen Law : Thanks Karen! Whaaaaaat you don't know who is Pikachu?? Yes I agree, at the Halloween store where I was working, the sexy women costumes were wayyyyy overpriced for the quality, and I don't understand why someone would pay $100 for something that you will wear only one night and probably will never wear again!

    @ThisIsAlx: Awww thanks Alex! Yes I'm not purchasing products that were tested on animals anymore but sometimes it's sooo hard like for teeth whitening products and hair dyes -_-

    @MaviDeniz : I would have loved to go to a club but my friends never want to go out ):
