EOTD featuring Inglot Pigment 85

I purchased this.

I wanted a simple, but pretty look for a family get-together today. I ended up deciding to use Inglot's AMC Pure Pigment in 85 because 1) hello, DUOCHROME!!!, 2) it's so pretty!!!, and 3) I have had it sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks, but hadn't used it yet.

I loved how I was able to apply the Inglot pigment lightly on the lid with a bit of matte brown eye shadow in the crease, and it turned out to be pretty without being over-done. It was also simple and quick to do. My technique could have been a lot better, but forget about that and just look at the pretty color! I think I'm going to have to wear this pigment more often!




WHAT I USED:
MAC Painterly Paint Pot as primer over entire eye area
Illamasqua Vintage Metallix in Courtier as eye shadow base on lid and crease
Darling Girl Glitter Glue over entire eye area
Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow 85 on outer 3/4 of lid

EOTD featuring Darling Girl's "Sammi-Sue Who"--Xmas Collection Sneak Peek!

I purchased this.
PR sample.

I received an order from Darling Girl Cosmetics (DGC) a couple of weeks ago, and in it was a surprise sample of something I was very excited to see. Before I tell you what it is, I should disclose that I'm one of DGC's "Darling Girls." Each eye shadow color in this year's upcoming DGC Christmas collection is named after one of the Darling Girls. Mine is named "Sammi-Sue Who," and I featured a sneak peek of Sammi-Sue Who in today's look. It's a gorgeous purple with a gold sheen that verges on copper-toned, especially when blended with brown shades. It's so pretty, and I am so excited that "my color" was so stunning!





WHAT I USED:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance over entire eye area
Darling Girl Cosmetics:
  - Glitter Glue over entire eye area
  - Sammi-Sue Who on lid and beneath lower lash line
  - Calla on brow bone

Based on the name of "my" Christmas color, can you guess what the 2014 Darling Girl Christmas collection is going to be based on?

EOTD: Gray-Pink-Brown-Burgundy with Darling Girl Cosmetics

PR samples.
I purchased this. 

I did this look using Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadows; however, three of the four shadows used are no longer available. Two of them were Gift With Purchase (GWP) shades and one was the September 2014 Color of the Month (COTM). However, if you like the colors used, you can get a similar look by using some of Darling Girl's regular catalog eye shadows.

  • Where I used Holy Shitake!, you could use Hot Rocks or Sakura Season
  • Where I used Sphynx, you could try Woogy or Beso De La Muerte (Woogy will have a lot more sparkles)
  • Where I used Autumn's Kiss, you could opt for Hell Hath No Fury instead
