Wet n Wild ColorIcon Trios: I Dream of Greenie, I Got Good Jeans + Handwriting Tag
They were a few weeks late but I finally found the new Wet n Wild ColorIcon trios at WAL-MART! Even though Mona had bought me all the pink ones, I was so excited I bought the three I didn't have. Here's hoping they'll all fit into one UNII palette when I'm ready to de-pot!
It was way too cold to leave my house today (-32C with the windchill) so I opted to play with makeup instead... same FOTD but two different EOTDs (I wanted to use them all but I didn't think my eyes would appreciate that too much) so I'll be playing with all the palettes over the next few days.
For these looks I applied the shadows as the packaging suggests (i.e. Lid colour, crease colour, browbone) rather than mixing up placement :)
I Dream of Greenie was MUCH brighter on my eyes than the swatches were (as you'll be below) on my arms. Pigmentation was good, and the browbone shade was less green than I thought it would be... I don't think it looks too awkward in the FOTD! I used a fairly dense eyeshadow brush to apply the lid colour and it kicked up a LOT of powder so... be warned when you use these!
This colour combination confused me. Individually all the colours are beautiful (the navy blue crease shade is my favourite) but as I rarely do contrasting looks I struggled with applying these... this is actually the second try! I think it looks OK now (several hours later) but I'll probably break out these eyeshadows into separate looks rather than wearing them all at once. I also found the browbone shade too dark for use there... it's a lovely silvery-blue though.
Swatches done over UDPP on my arm. See the browbone shades for I Got Good Jeans? It's so dark!
Jen and Sheila were kind enough to tag me in the handwriting meme! Here are my answers :)
And here is my new favourite way to apply foundation! From dry size to wet size
