EOTD + NOTD: Blue All Over

Tuesday, July 27, 2010
My fear of being associated with Mimi Bobeck, from the Drew Carey show is the main thing that keeps me from using blue eyeshadow more often. Quite frankly, I don't think I have the demeanor to pull it off, it just feels over the top to me and you can usually tell I'm not comfortable when I'm wearing it. This was a bit of an experimental look, but I actually kind of like it.
The sad thing is, the best parts- subtle purple sheens were completely and utterly lost when photographing.
I'll just tell you about it, you can imagine it in.
There was a lavender opalescent sheen in my inner corner, from this lovely shade in the Dior quint Urbanity. There was also a hint of purpley duochrome on the main part of the lid, because I used one of Fyrinnae's excellent unique shades, Javan Rhino. Blast you, camera.

Used: UDPP, Pixie Epoxy, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero, Fyrinnae Javan Rhino, Wet'n'Wild Lagoon, Dior Urbanity quint, Opera Volume control mascara. NYX brow powder in Ash/Taupe.

Special thanks to my makeup fairy godmother for giving me the quint!

That blue polish yesterday made me so happy, I figured hell- I'll do blue again!
1x Seche Clear, 3x Alice

This polish is by a brand called "Funky Fingers", the same company that makes Color Club. It was an unexpected treasure find at 5Below, where I ended up paying $20 for 10 nail polishes. The quality is great- maybe a little sheer, smooth application.  But as you can see, three coats did this shiny metallic foil polish great justice. Grow, gross little nails, grow!

Till later then! I should have the R&R blushes reviewed shortly!

All items mentioned 'cept for the quint were purchased by me, for my own use.
