EOTD with Too Faced Poison Orchid

I am so happy that I was one of the lucky winners of Phyrra's Too Faced Poison Orchid eyeshadow giveaway. I knew Poison Orchid was pretty from the photos she posted, but when I received it in the mail last Monday, I was absolutely blown away by how gorgeous it is. I also didn't realize how sparkly it is -- photos just don't do the sparkle justice. I usually wear different eyeshadow colors every day, but I love Poison Orchid so much that I wore it Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday this past week. One of the things I love most about it is that the sparkles in it are reflective, so if I wear it on my lid with a different color in the crease, the sparkles pick up the other color, giving Poison Orchid a duochrome-like flash. I wore it on Tuesday with teal, on Wednesday with pink, and on Friday with green, and it flashed with each color. It's really amazing, and of course, my photos don't capture it at all -- but believe me, mirrors don't lie, and every time I passed a mirror, I would flutter my lashes a bit to see all of the pretty sparkly colors!

This is the Poison Orchid look I wore to work on Friday.

For this eye look, I used the following:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Brule on brow bone
MAC Golden Olive pigment in crease and inner lower lash line
MAC Strawberry Patch pigment on inner lid
Too Faced Poison Orchid on lid and outer lower lash line
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in Black along upper lash line
Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner pencil in Black on lower waterline
Benefit They're Real! mascara
Chinovi Cosmetics unreleased brow powders


  1. I love the combination of colours, it's so bright and fresh!

  2. I never thought to wear Poison Orchid with green! It looks awesome. Isn't it an amazing shadow? I bought it because of Phyrra and I just wish it looked as amazing in pictures as it does it real life. I can never make the pictures turn out!

    Oh, I'm hallucinating or is that a dab of yellow above your eyebrow? New trend alert? ;)

    1. Ha ha ha, that's just the sunlight, not yellow or a hallucination. :)

  3. I love this look, it's so pretty. I was lucky enough to win this, too, and I haven't got around to using it yet but I am soooooo excited. All the pictures I've seen with this eyeshadow have been amazing.

    1. I'm glad you won it, too! You're going to love it.

  4. Love this on you ! So bright and colorful , nice !
    Poison Orchid is my favorite from Too Faced , along with Midnight mist .

  5. Oh wow! That is so pretty...the colors look great together.
