Illamasqua Beguile Pure Pigment

I love, love, loved the idea of Beguile. Like NYX Ice Glitter Nail Polish, this twinkles and looks phenomenal in person, because it needs movement to really come alive. Unfortunately, the texture makes it harder to apply. It’s definitely not something you could apply dry without some sort of adhesive base; it winds up all over your face and just doesn’t stick without something more.  Even when I used a mixing medium, I still had some fall out during the day. I’d also recommend using it over another color (even if it’s neutral, like a beige), because it doesn’t create a solid base color easily.

Estee Lauder Black Chrome Eyeshadow Duo

Estee Lauder Black Chrome Pure Color Eyeshadow Duo ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a limited edition offering from the Modern Mercury collection.  The combination is classic, though for many of us, superfluous; it’s a set of dark, smoky hues that would work well to smoke out any look.  I liked how there are two textures presented.

Illamasqua Havoc Precision Ink Liquid Eyeliner

I found Havoc to deliver excellent color payoff, too–really rich, bold color in a single stroke. It’s an intense burgundy wine with a semi-matte finish–no shimmer at all–that is so in tune with the autumnal hues.  The brown in the color makes it easier to wear, because if the red tones were more dominating, it could give the illusion of I-just-cried-my-eyes-out when worn–which is not usually the look one wants.  The closest comparable shade is Make Up For Ever #11, which is redder, lighter, and shimmery.
