What We’re Wearing, Vol. 001

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 001

My favorite look from this week was using Guerlain’s Rue de Rivoli palette — the iridescent pink-gold shade all over the lid with a hint of fuchsia on the outer corner and the darker taupe-gray-plum shade in the crease.  I paired the eyes with a very sheer layer of Guerlain’s Blush G on the apples of cheeks and wore Chanel Baroque Rouge Coco on lips.

What was your favorite look you wore this week?

NYX Emerald City Eye Pencil

NYX Emerald City Eye Pencil ($3.50) is a darkened forest green with a hint of teal. It leans on the cooler side, but it works well with hazel eyes in particular. It has a fairly matte finish and good color pay off. NYX’s Eye Pencils last nearly all day on me, only slightly fading after eight hours (but from afar, I don’t think anyone would notice), but they are most notable for how soft they are. Use less pressure initially, just to get an idea of how soft these are–if you apply firmer pressure, you may find the tip breaks off.
