    I love this one so much, I bought 2! Unfortunately, I’ve only used it once so far, but it really is a dream to work with. It looked great with the other Cool Heat shadows… I used Warm Chill on the inner lid & slightly above crease, Gulf Stream on the outer lid & lower lashline, Cool Heat in the v/crease, Solar Heat on the browbone. I wore High 90s slimshine with Sweet Tooth tendertone over it. I had Pinch Me blush on the apples of my cheeks & Glissade msf to highlight.

    • Hi Ariele,

      Wow, two! It must really have called to you :) It is such a lovely color, though. This is a fabulous look you’ve created with it! You definitely should experiment with it more, especially since you do have two.

  2. I love Warm Chill, it looks great with all the shadows from the collection. Recently I have been wearing Warm Chill on my lid, and Club e/s in my crease and outer v, with Shroom to highlight. Margin blush on my cheeks, and Syrup lisptick.

  3. This color looks fab with all the cool heats colors.
    I have been using this color all the time.

    1. I used otherworldy p/p as a base on my lids.
    gulf stream on the lids, climate blue on the outer corner/ crease, solar white on highlight and tear duct. i did the same combination for lower lid. line eyes with a metallic liner and also used engraved.
    Blusher – peachykeen
    Lips – pink grapefruit

    2. Neutral eye look with pop of color — i start off with femmi fe/vex/ricepaper on the lids, magnetic fields/satin taupe on the outer and crease, and your ladyship p.g as highlight. I used the blue pop liner (heatherette duo liner) to line lower lids, and use gulf stream to go over.

  4. I have to agree with Arielle, I owuld use Warm Chill on the inner lid and above the crease, I would use Gulf Stream all over the lid, and cool heat in the crease. On the lips I owuld use Gentle Simmer. And for the cheeks I would also use peachy keen! :)

    The other day I did Mutiny over the lid, Warm Chill over it, Aquadisiac on the outer corners of the eye, and newly minted in the entire crease with nylon as a highlight on my brow. As always I lined my upper lid with Blacktrack (I can’t leave home without it) and Cantalope (PRO) blush on my cheeks. LOVED IT!!!!

    I am loving all of the bright colors from the cool heat collection. Gulf Stream is in my top 3 right now. I wore it today. I paired it with Gleam, Pandamonium, and Shroom on my eyes, Peachtwist on my cheeks and High 90s with Major Minor on my lips. Here are a couple of pics:

    I used gulfstream as a ‘pop’ of liner on the top lid with:

    warm chill to highlight/light wash and on inner corners
    ochre style eyeshadow in crease, with solar bits in Bronzescape on top in outer crease

    three custom colour watercolours in Coral Waterlily on apples of cheeks

    Neo Sci-fi lipstick dotted lightly on mouth

    Liked it so much I have done it a few times…
