For months, I have been drawn to Global Goddess’ products, because they just look so pretty. I recently received a few items from the brand to try out, and I am glad that I didn’t fork over the bucks myself. The review will follow this entry, so you can read about my experience with it, but suffice to say I wasn’t impressed and I think this look can even show you some of the trouble I had with it.

On a more positive note, it’s Thursday! The week is almost over — hang in there ladies :)

I used Global Goddess’s Sizzling Serengeti Tribal Eyeshadow Quad in Arusha on the eyes. I used the lightest color on the inner lid, the light purple on the middle of lid, and the brown color on the outer lid and crease. I used the lightest color to highlight the brow bone, and I finished using Graphblack technakohl and Plushlash mascara for lashes. I wore global Goddess’s Goddess Glow South Pacific Shimmer on cheeks, over Gentle mineralize blush (LE). I wore Cafe Matte Mattene (LE) with Red Romp lipglass (LE).

    Love the lip combo! The shadow is pretty however it doesn’t look like it’s anything special based on your review.. I think you did the best job you could with what you were workin with though! =D

    Love the lips and cheeks. . . but I think you’re right about color payoff on the eyes! I’ve been intrigued by this brand myself, but maybe not so much anymore. Thanks for the review, Christine!

    • Thanks, Kensie! It’s not a totally unheard of brand (it’s available at Nordstrom’s), but I’m not surprised you haven’t heard of it!

    I really didn’t think that it looked bad at all. I don’t know what trouble you’re talking about. I think it looks good. I mean, it may not be anything special or unique but it looks good I think. If you said you used MAC products instead, I probably wouldn’t have noticed a difference to tell you the truth!!

    • Hi Lil,

      Oh, I don’t so much mean it looked awful or anything, just that it took a LOT of work to get it look as it did, you know? It’s hard to see the trouble I was having with the finished product, LOL, since the frustration came before :)

    Hi Christine
    I’m in love with your blog, you are such an inspiration!
    I have to say everything tend to look good on you :-) but thank you for being so honest about your feedback. It’s such a nice and great change with these “all advertising” blogs.

    • Hi Fanny,

      Thank you so much! :) I try not to post too many of my total mistakes, LOL. I mean, I don’t want them to be memoralized for all eternity on the interweb!

      I’m more of a positive person, so I don’t like to bash products, but I try to be honest if I don’t like a product or it didn’t work for me.

    I love the lips but your eyes seem to get lost in this look. The shadows kind of blend all together- maybe it’s just the flash but are they too soft metallic? With the description of what you used, I thought it would look different. I can’t see any purple tones.
