Happy Monday! I'm busy at home doing a lot of swatches so I can catch up. I try to update hauls and different things I've got here in my stash, but dang it, it takes me forever to edit and post the photos. Sometimes Blogger is crap and rejects photos or the editing goes all wonky and I get crabby and put it off. BUT today I wanted to get some done.
Here is my pro palette for Blue Eyes. I tried to gather a good group of neutrals with a bronze/coral edge because I think those make blue eyes really stand out and sparkle. I'm not a big fan of "If you look like this, wear colors like this" sort of theory, but it's how I grouped this particular palette. I used blue gaffer's tape for the names and stuck them on the lid- ha!
(All colors left to right)
Top Row: Brule, Naked Lunch, Jest, Gleam, and Expensive Pink
Middle Row: Ricepaper, All That Glitters, Woodwinked, Amber Lights, and Antiqued
Bottom Row: Mystery, Satin Taupe, Twinks, Paradisco, and Carbon.
Some closer photos, taken indoors without flash. All swatches were applied with a wet brush, no primer. Some took a lot of application attempts to get such a rich color- not cool when these cost $14.50 msrp. I won't go into it, but MAC shadows are beautiful to look at, would appear to be richly pigmented, but a lot of the times it's hit and miss. Consider yourself lovingly warned :)
Here's a breakdown of the palette:
Brule: Pale flesh toned ivory
Naked Lunch: Shimmering soft peach
Ricpaper: Yellow toned pale sand
All That Glitters: Bronze edged shimmering gold
Mystery: Grey flat dark brown
Satin Taupe: Silvered medium golden brown
Oh nice, my typos abound today- Tweaks?! That's what I get for checking emails, talking on the phone, AND doing photo edits. Sorry! Lol, it's Twinks. Oh even better...look what I called Woodwinked below *groan*.
Jest: Shimmery baby pink
Gleam: Pearled soft pinky peach
Woodwinked: Molten rich gold
Amber Lights: Gleaming golden copper
Twinks: Peachy golden copper pearl
Paradisco: Golden shifting coral pink
Paradisco is beautiful but is a real hassle to get color payoff from. Same with Brule. Not too pleased with that. How nice, I got the names right, go me!
Expensive Pink: Rosy toned golden coral
Antiqued: Metallic golden bronze
Carbon: True flat black
