I’ve really had fun playing with different palettes to create an everyday smokey eye. A few Fridays ago I nabbed my daughter’s maybelline blushed nudes palette.
- Coppery Shimmer (bottom #5) on lid
- Chocolate (bottom #2) in crease & outer v
- Dark Shimmery Chocolate (bottom #6) just inside outer v
- Bronze Shimmer (bottom #1) lashlines top & bottom
- Rosé (top #2) inner v
- Matte Taupe (top #5) on brow bone¹
As you see I also went with a bold lip. Very unlike me, but it came in the bite amuse bouche mini sampler from my haul, so I simply had to give it a swipe.
The minimalist velvety matte packaging has a very luxe look & feel. This small batch handcrafted lippie is made with 12 edible oils, triple milled pigments, & has a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit. It is a bold creamy formula that requires a single swipe for full (mostly) precise application. It wasn’t drying & didn’t settle into cracks. I do think it requires a little bit of upkeep. I lost a lot on my morning coffee mug, but not terribly high maintenance. A bright red is a little scary, but I found this very flattering.
Not to brag² but I seriously love this especially how beautifully it worked with my H&M floral top & blanket scarf.
¹This is a pretty good dupe for Urban Decay Buck.
²Which means I’m about to be self indulgent.
