    i love that color :)

  2. I honestly would rock it both on my eyelids and my lips because I love bold, standout colors. Howevers, I couldn’t see myself wearing it on my cheeks because I am not very careful with how much I dab on and this can cause some damage in my cheek color in terms of pigmentation haha :)

    I love the color! I got it from the collection and it just came in the mail today! so pretty 😀 I can’t wait to see the different ideas that people come up with, i’m not sure how i’m going to use it yet.

    MAC’s French Cuff Eyeshadow on the lid (peachy pink) and that in the crease/outercorner. Probably a peachy-pink color on the cheeks and a gloss that matches your lip color :)

    I used it last sunday with MAC Straw Harvest in the inner 1/3, MAC Hot Hot Hot in the middle bit, slightly over the crease to blend, MAC La-La in the outer 1/3 and above the crease – almost smoking out – and with Very Violet in the crease, and a slight bit outside for blending purposes :) On my upper lid I used MAC Full of Fuschia TechnaKohl Liner with the MAC stylo eyeliner (can’t remember the name now sorry :( ) and on my lower lid waterline I used MAC Engraved PowerPoint Pencil and then pressed on some MAC Lucky Green e/s on my lower lid – just so that it sparkled a little :) Put on Guerlain Le2Mascara in Butterfly Sparkle, on my lips I had NARS Cruisin’ l/s with NARS Easy Lover l/g, and added just a bit of MAC By Candlelight MSF on my cheekbones… turned out to be a very cute, sunset-y, but subdued look (I usually do very strong eyes anyway, so this was a nice change for me.. :))

    hmm, maybe with a gold e/s to make my brown eyes pop. I came across this picture of David Bowie with silver all over, a kind of smoked purple on the outer 1/3 and pink in the crease, it was absolutely stunning!

    I’d like to wear this eye shadow all over the lid with a little reflects pearl glitter on the inner corners of my eyes, loads of black eye liner, mascara and false eye lashes. I’d wear Illamasqua Nymph powder blusher on the apples of my cheeks and MAC Angel lipstick on my lips with a bit of clear gloss. :-)

  8. I’d pair it with too faced mirror mirror gloss in Envy Me for sort of berry/purpley lips, MAC mineralize blush in Gentle, and I’d blend it on the lids with cranberry or wine tones. Although I bet it would be gorgeous with Urban Decays Asphyxia eyeshadow, adn the corresponding color Heavy Metal eyeliner.

    light frosted lilac on the lid and use very violet as a liner with a natural pink blush lips and for lips red tinted (benetint lip balm?) or a light pastel pinky/goldy/nude lip
    I think it would look light and pretty in the summer especially on pale skin as it would suit the pastels
