I’m a bit under the weather at the moment (I think it’s the flu…), so if I look a bit ragged/tired, that’s why 😉 This didn’t quite come out how I wanted it, and I really wanted to wipe it all off afterwards, lol. Don’t you hate when that happens? Hopefully tomorrow will go better! (It’s been a rough few days here over at Temptalia HQ – nothing has gone as planned!)

By the by, Deep Dark is way too orange for me. I ended up using it more as a blusher (and had to buff it a bit), so I’ll be exchanging that next week when I go pick up my Colour Forms products (18th). I do like it as a light blush, so we’ll see – I’ll keep experimenting this week before I return it.

It’s Friday, ladies! Rejoice, we’re almost to the weekend. What do you have planned for tonight/this weekend?

I used Blue pigment (LE) on lid, Sea & Sky mineralize eyeshadow (marbled side) (LE) on inner lid, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lid, Contrast eyeshadow on outer crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Nylon eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow layered on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Deep Dark mineralize skinfinish duo on cheeks. I wore Sandy B lipstick and Illicit lipglass (LE).

    absolutely gorgeous! i was in a blue mood yesterday too…you did a FAB job!!

  2. von

    oh, and i’ve been meaning to ask, what camera do you use that gets the photos upclose so clear and perfect? thanks

  3. ce

    Very pretty, now I want that shadow duo!

  4. this one screams! =)

  5. Wow! Now that’s bold! I like it, though. I think I would feel like you did, though, and have an urge to take it off. It might be perfect for some girl’s night or something.

    I have no plans this weekend, which I prefer. I like to just relax and take it day by day. If it’s warm enough, I’ll probably go swimming. We’ll see!

    • Yeah, I’m not going anywhere today (hopefully… I’m the biggest homebody you’ll ever meet, I swear!), so maybe that’s part of why I feel weird. Perhaps the fact I haven’t done anything this WHOA in a while, too?

      Sounds like good weekend plans to me :) I like hanging around and doing nothing. LOVE down time!

  6. Dont know what the heck you are talking about Chris…it looks gorgeous! You sure know how to make a flu look fabulous! Very pretty!

    • Thanks, Roselyn! LOL, the flu never looked this good?! 😉

      It’s not TOO bad yet, but so not fun, and the sleep situation could be better. Thank god blogging uses mostly still photos, I’d be hacking up a lung on video.

    STUNNING! I bought Hot Contrast and Fresh Green Mix and passed on Sea and Sky, fearing it would be too much but I might have to rethink that now. . .

    You look sooo pretty!

  8. Kristy

    ok..I Have to go get Sea & Sky!

    You look SO good!

  9. Ellesk

    I love this look! This and that smoky green/gold/black look you did a while back are my favorites! I think it’s because I really like how deep, metallic jewel tones look on your eyelid… it just makes the color of your eyes pop!
    If only I didn’t have to be saving up for my trip to Dublin at the end of the summer, I might actually be persuaded to buy this duo!

  10. Betsy

    The blue&green totally camouflage your blues! 😉

    You look great and wow! This look is so bright!

  11. shangrila

    i love it (you should do a tut! wooooo!)! i hope you dont have the flu! feel better!

  12. jesstooimpress

    I HATE how u can have the flu, and still look amazing! gorgeous look. i love it, im glad u didnt wipe it off!

  13. Kate

    Are you kidding?! No way do you look ragged/tired. Try stunning and gorgeous! When I saw this look on you my first thought was Cleopatra-inspired along the lines of the Alexander McQueen Collection. Very beautiful on you, Christine.

  14. Ariele

    So blue! I like it though. The lip combo is nice too, to tone it down a bit. What do you think of the mineralize shadow this time around? I know you mentioned you weren’t a big fan of them, but it seems MAC improves with every release of them… did you find this one easier to work with than ones in the past? The color is very intense!

    Hope you are feeling better soon! The flu is no fun :(

    Ahh, thank goodness for weekends. TGIF! Dinner out tonight; tomorrow I have an engagement party to attend & then girls night out. Sunday I finally get to relax though. I’m looking forward to that part most probably 😉

    • Hi Ariele,

      Thanks! It is quite intense, not quite as bright blue as I wanted, can you believe it? I think I need to use the shadow wet soon, and perhaps try a creamy base.

      Yes, I did find it easier to work with; everybody’s been saying the same thing – they’re smoother, richer, and more intense. Hopefully it’s not just forgetful minds talking!

      Sounds like a good weekend. Hope you’re enjoying your lazy Sunday!

  15. Brooke

    omg u pull off blues SO well. even when a look is over the top you do it so beautifully that it could be worn as every day. i looooooove this!!!! amazing!

    • Hi Brooke,

      Thank you, love! Blues are so pretty to look at, though I never love them as much on myself as others seem to, LOL. I think it’s a bit bold even for me :)

  16. lala

  17. Vivien

  21. Ariana

    O M G! You definitely just confirmed my decision to buy Sea & Sky. I can’t believe how vibrant it is! Can’t wait to buy it and start playing around!

  22. Amanda

    I really love this look. I try so hard to get the perfect blue shadow and it always fails! I wish mine would come out like that! Nice job as always.

  23. karen

    will buy see sky. it looks great on you.

  24. Cassie

    LOVE IT! Very nice. I think I will give this a try tomorrow with my new Sea & Sky shadow! Keep up the awesome work! Can’t wait to see what you come up with with the other colors!

  25. Stephanie D

    Damn Christine- this is so hot! I need that Sea & Sky!

  26. Nana

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    Sea & Sky is definitely mine!

  27. Kristen Elisabeth

    This looks really good on you.

    I wish I had money for Electroflash!

  28. Brittany

    ooooooh! i so love this look! the blue is absolutely gorgeous!!!! i hope you feel better soon :)

  29. Kirsten

    i actually think the deep dark gives you a really nice glow from what i can see in this picture. but, if you can do the same (or better) with bronzer then i agree you should return it

  30. danielle

    WOW! you do not look sick at all! gorgeous and alluring!

    i just ordered that duo along with hot contrast, fresh green mix, two to glow and love connection. i can’t wait for them to come in! i want to try them on already!

  31. I doubt you could ever look ragged <3 Gorgeous as always… I cannot wait to get Sea & Sky!

  32. Lol Cristine.U said wot i was thinking that it didnt came out as i thought and u too aswell!We match.I think it shud have been more INTENSE AND EXQUISITE.But its ok as u r also not feeliing well.Buti like it very much.Love the fact that those kinda Inky blue can be so BEAUTIFUL!!


  33. Rachel

    UMM wow! I really refrain from using bright colors, except greens and purples because of their neutralness, but I love this. Most of the time, I think looks with a ton of color in them look tacky and dated, but this is gorgeous. I def. want to try this.. I LOVE IT.

  34. Kella

    This has always been one of my fav looks on you. :)

  35. HeavenLeiBlu

    Dang you, Christine; I’m on my way out the door to get Sea & Sky RIGHT NOW. I look like a hobo, so I know the girls in the store are gonna look at me crazy, but I don’t care! I can’t take it anymore, LOL

  36. Jenna


    Now I feel like going to M.A.C to buy some blue eyeshadow. I’ve been eyeing Blue Flame from the Cool Heat collection!

  37. Haydee

    Shit this is Hot! This one takes the cake. So so pretty. You really did your thing here :)

  38. Chloe

    Nice! You sure know how to make the flu look good! LOL…

  39. Sash

    I love this!
    Very vibrant, very great use of colors, Christine!
    You look gorg.!
