Even though Mood Ring is gorgeous, and the packaging for the eyeshadow trios is sleek and up my alley, I just can’t bring myself to buy it quite yet. So I set out to dupe a look I know I’d do as soon as I got the trio instead… BTW, clean your brushes often! I went to fix part of the inner lid, and what do you know, I get some teal-black, too.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Shroom eyeshadow on inner lid, Aquavert eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on middle lid, Cloudburst eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on outer crease, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer lid, Shroom eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Black Funk/Pop Blue dual edge pencil on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on lower inner lash line, Plushblack mascara, and Brun eyeshadow for brows. I wore Springsheen blush on cheeks with Guerlain Mythic Parfait Pressed Meterorite to highlight cheeks. I had Soft Lust lipstick with Vital Spark and Tartlette lipglass on my lips.

* This look is meant to replicate one that could be made using Heatherette Trio 1. Shroom = Hoppin'; Mood Ring = Aquavert, Newly Minted, Shimmermoss (They all get muddled together in this look – Aquadisiac + Newly Minted would also work; Meadowland is a good dupe on its own); Cloudburst = Cloudburst eyeshadow (launched with Blue Storm) — can be replaced with Carbon and layer Shimmermoss (tap it) for the slight blue reflects from Cloudburst.

** The lips are meant to also duplicate Heatherette products: Soft Lust = Lollipop Lovin’ (no green reflects in this version); Vital Spark + Tartlette = Sock Hop with shimmer.

    Love it, i’m a sucker for green/teal shades, they really make brown eyes pop!
    You look fab, and Magellan is cute as!

    Totally awesome Christine. I didn’t buy Trio 1 b/c I’m so on the fence about it…this convinces me I don’t need to get it. $32.50 is steep and I bought other stuff…plus I’m really really excited about Naughty Nauticals for some reason so I need to save.

    i dont want to bother you, but all your make ups are the same just a chang of color! do someting diffrent…anyway, thanks for your blog!!

    • Hi Beret! It’s my style of makeup, I feel like it works for me so I don’t go out of my way to be experimental, but thanks for the tip!

    I´ll get the trio #1, because I don´t have anything similar (neutral headquarters here) and I can´t wait to try a bit of color on my eyes. I have you to thank for this major change in character, Christine!!!
    Kisses to Mellan!

    A very fresh looking combination Christine! Great for spring… I like how you managed to not get the trio and used existing eyeshadow colors that you have to re-create the look! Haha so we all don’t have to run out and get the palette XD.

    And Magellan, pawwwwwwwwww!

  9. So pretty! Your skin looks just like usual Christine. I love the Gorgeous Gold e/s on the inner eye – it makes a huge difference and sets this look apart. Your hair looks fabulous, very very nice :D

    Mellan…..I LOVE you, and dont go troubling mamma or dragging those kiddie claws on her. Okies? Kiss him on his forehead from me, pretty please Christine.

    • Thank you! It’s getting back to usual, though a bit dry from all the acne medication.

      Goodness, I have all these scratches on my hands/arms from him (though he didn’t *mean* to) from his puppy nails. Right now, he’s looking at me like, “Hey, don’t talk smack about me!”
