Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (501) Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (501) Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is described as “mauve, violet, white, and purple.” It’s a mix of purples, really, with varying finishes from iridescent to frosted to satin (no mattes here, though). I wore the lightest shade as an inner corner highlight, then used the mauve shade on the inner half of the lid with the lavender shade on the outer half of the lid, and used the darkest purple shade to define the crease.

Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($30.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “light rosy beige.” It’s a warm, golden copper; I didn’t get real rosiness–more a mix of champagne, gold, and a copper/bronze aspect that gave it a darker coloring. I couldn’t think of anything similar to this, as nothing in the champagne/nude family compared, and even in my gold eyeliner stash, nothing was quite right (most were much yellower).

bareMinerals The Cocktail Hour Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Cocktail Hour Eyeshadow Palette ($24.50 for 0.28. oz.) is a holiday palette from last year, but it’s actually still available through bareMinerals at a discounted price of $24.50–it originally retailed for $40.00–and it is a truly fantastic palette. I’m a huge fan of the Ready eyeshadow range, and this palette is and was excellent. This palette contains these shades: Black Tie Optional (black velvet), Icebreaker (pink pearl), Swanky (dazzling plum), Spiked (copper blush), Elixir (luxe lilac), Invite Only (taupe slate), Libation (sugared cinnamon), and Shaken Not Stirred (jeweled envy).
