I love the combo of blues/teals, it’s beautifully done 😀 I’m usually not a fan of teal-y colours, but I really love how you did this! It makes me want to revisit these colours 🙂

I love this look – it’s gorgeous, and the colours suit you so well…they make you look so summery and exotic 🙂

LOVE this on you. Can’t wait to try it! Waiting for Smoke & Diamonds to come through the mail 😉 Happy birthday to your sis, too! Ah, to be 18 again…I feel so old 😉

Thanks, Elle! I liked the bit that Smoke & Diamonds added to it 🙂 Worked well with the teal.

LOL, I turn 22 in under two months, and I feel a little old, but I’m also kind of nuts!

I love this look ! Teals are gorgeous on you. The lips really pull the look together nicely also. I’m still trying to decide if I need Smoke & Diamonds =/

Thanks so much, Ashley! I don’t think it’s a must-have – it’s nice, but it’s not terribly unique… at least not to the point where you couldn’t use a similar color in a look to get the same effect.

This is beyond gorgeous! I was having issues getting Talent Pool to pop for me yesterday. I’ll have to try using a green base under it.

Lovin’ this e/s combo!! I like that you change up the looks here 🙂 Some neutral, some color, some bright, some subtle. very nice!

So… Talent Pool is getting all the raves (and I see why) but it also seems super duper close to Parrot. What’s your take?

I second that question..
Christine, can you swatch them side by side, pretty please?!?! :o)
Lovely look, greens and teals look equally great with your brown eyes *jealous*

Thanks, Ariele! I try, LOL, but it is hard to sometimes 🙂

It’s similar to Parrot – I like that it has more color pay off than Parrot, and it’s not quite as frosty. But they’re similar, and if you don’t wear Parrot a lot, no need to get Talent Pool.

Such gorgeous colors!
I love teal, although the most I wear is a thin line on the upper lash line in an otherwise neutral look. But it is a start…
Your expression in the second full face pic is especially pretty!

You look incredible, babe!
I love this look on you! It really made ur eye color pop!

Love the look!

Would you say that Talent Pool is similar to Steamy because I wanted it but I already have Steamy and Parrot?

Profile photo of Christine

Nah, I wouldn’t say it’s similar to Steamy. It’s closer to Parrot! I’d say if you don’t wear Parrot a lot, you can skip Talent Pool.

man i just love this! i’ve been loving the neutral looks too….keep em alll coming honey! u cant turn back now. it’s like the highlight of my day to see ur looks!

Absolutely stunning! You look gorgeous and I love the teals! How the hell did you learn to do your makeup so well???..lol.. I got this one so I’ll have to see if I can pull it off like you..keep them coming 🙂

Thanks, Susy! I just keep practicing, it’s a neverending process 🙂 But seriously, practice and just playing with makeup has gotten me this far!

It’s a beautiful look.. I’ll have to try it myself.. I love teals although I don’t wear them that often.
Christine did you use a primer before applying the pigment?

I think you look beautiful, these colors really compliment you well. Question I had seen that Talent Pool was compared to Parrot, do you think Shimmermoss is a better comparision?


Profile photo of Christine

Thanks, Teresa! It’s similar, but I find that it’s a bit more blue. Since I used a green base, it is greener (hence more like Shimmermoss), but it’s not naturally so.

I’m so new to this site… but I must say I luv teals!! N u really did such a great job of combining these colors!! This look is great! I have a question n plz don’t laugh, but what does (LE) stand for?
