Here’s a Naughty Nauticals look for you!

I used Mutiny pigment (LE) on inner half of lid, Bell Bottom Blue pigment (LE) on outer half of lid, Nylon eyeshadow above inner crease, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on middle of lid, Submarine eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Shroom eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Mutiny pigment (LE) on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Sunbasque blush with Dior Ambier Diamond skinshimmer on cheeks. I had Curtsy lipstick (LE) with Baby Sparks dazzleglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!
Mutiny = Aquadisiac/Surreal + White Frost; Bell Bottom Blue = Naval Blue pigment; Submarine = Blue Storm, Naval, or Deep Truth; Curtsy = Peachstock; Baby Sparks = Flusterrose, Wonderstruck, or Bountiful.

This is a look from a week or two ago! I’m about to get my butt in the shower so I can get ready to dash over to Nordstrom’s to check out Naughty Nauticals, so you can definitely expect to see reviews and swatches galore in a bit ;)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Sunny Girl eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Aquadisiac eyeshadow on outer lid, Patina eyeshadow on outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Margin blush on cheeks, and I had Sweetie lipstick with C-Thru lipglass on my lips.

I’m trying REALLY hard to be creative with makeup, like I’m trying to go outside of my usual box (which is challenging in itself because I honestly like my box quite a lot!) at least a step or two (baby steps!). Anyway, upper lash liner again, though after seeing pics, it should extend a few millimeters more, but oh well.

I used Rollickin’ paint pot on lid, Parfait Amour eyeshadow all over lid, Juxt eyeshadow above inner crease/inner lid, Silver Ring eyeshadow on outer crease, Cinders eyeshadow on outer lid, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow above outer crease, Overgrown eyeshadow above inner and middle crease, White Tie eyeshadow on brow to highlight, Royal Wink fluidline on upper lash line with Parfait Amour eyeshadow patted over it, Overgrown eyeshadow on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on lower lash line, and Plushblack plushlash mascara. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush with Lightly Lilac beauty powder on cheeks. I had Utter Pervette lipstick with Cult Fave lipglass with a touch of Totally It! lipglass on my lips.

Even though Mood Ring is gorgeous, and the packaging for the eyeshadow trios is sleek and up my alley, I just can’t bring myself to buy it quite yet. So I set out to dupe a look I know I’d do as soon as I got the trio instead… BTW, clean your brushes often! I went to fix part of the inner lid, and what do you know, I get some teal-black, too.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Shroom eyeshadow on inner lid, Aquavert eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on middle lid, Cloudburst eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on outer crease, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer lid, Shroom eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Black Funk/Pop Blue dual edge pencil on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on lower inner lash line, Plushblack mascara, and Brun eyeshadow for brows. I wore Springsheen blush on cheeks with Guerlain Mythic Parfait Pressed Meterorite to highlight cheeks. I had Soft Lust lipstick with Vital Spark and Tartlette lipglass on my lips.

* This look is meant to replicate one that could be made using Heatherette Trio 1. Shroom = Hoppin'; Mood Ring = Aquavert, Newly Minted, Shimmermoss (They all get muddled together in this look – Aquadisiac + Newly Minted would also work; Meadowland is a good dupe on its own); Cloudburst = Cloudburst eyeshadow (launched with Blue Storm) — can be replaced with Carbon and layer Shimmermoss (tap it) for the slight blue reflects from Cloudburst.

** The lips are meant to also duplicate Heatherette products: Soft Lust = Lollipop Lovin’ (no green reflects in this version); Vital Spark + Tartlette = Sock Hop with shimmer.

I used several products from Clinique’s upcoming Summer 2008 collections, which are amazing! I adore the Shimmering Tones powder quad, and their new long wearing gloss formula is awesome! I’ll be reviewing the products I tried in more detail in the next two weeks, just in time for their launch in April.

I used Clinique Muffin Quick Eyes Cream shadow on all over lid, MAC Juxt eyeshadow over inner lid, MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow over middle of lid, MAC Smut eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Clinique Bronze Brush-on Cream Liner on lower lash line, and MAC Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line. I wore Clinique Shimmering Tones Powder Quad on cheeks. I had MAC Sweetie lipstick with Clinique Clearly Pink Long Last Glosswear on lips.
