To Impersonate a Mermaid by using Freshwater with aquas and crystalline blues to evoke images of the ocean and siren calls.

Go Bold With No Regrets in a sinfully rich and dark smoky eye that’s all blue and nothing but. Shamelessly smothered in the hues of blue and navy blue for a night out!

Lightly In the Crease to help add just a *touch* of dimension and color.

Make a Smoky Eye Pop by turning gray to a gray-toned-blue. It’s an eye look without a lot of color, but it isn’t so monochromatic either.

With Teals because it goes so perfectly with them. Yep, blue with teal–obviously not for those afraid to wear some color!

To Create Jewel Tones with its richness in that perfect medium blue that’s dark and yet not overwhelmingly so. Pair it with greens and teals and aquas.

I got a chance to get an early sneak peek at some of YSL’s Spring 2009 treats comin’ at us this February! :) I played with Palette d’Artiste for the Complexion ($62.00), Gloss Pur #4 (Pure Raspberry), Rouge Pur #146 (Romantic Pink), and Nail Touch #5 (Tender Pink Touch).

I’m really lovin’ the Gloss Pur formula–it’s creamy, pigmented, and not sticky at all. I love me a good pigmented gloss! I’m not positive whether all of the Gloss Purs have no shimmer, but it’s nice to see a gloss that’s just gloss and shine without the shimmer. The creaminess of the lipstick is lovely, and the shade is a more wearable shade of bubblegum pink.

The Nail Touch #5 is an interesting product, as it was my first time trying out a nail polish pen. I liked the experience, and it makes for a great on-the-go nail polish. This shade in particular is incredibly sheer, coming out mostly as a sheer pink–nice for the office or for those looking for something super subtle.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of this collection when it launches this spring!

Quick Dame Edna look for y’all today! :) Wisteria is a really, really pretty blue — but I probably wouldn’t use it to justify buying the entire palette, since the other two shadows are easily duped and their textures aren’t even great (feel like lustres to me, yuck!). Fineshine, especially, gets all over the place.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Mutiny pigment (teal-blue), Fineshine eyeshadow (silver), Wisteria eyeshadow (light blue-aqua), Divine Night eyeshadow (dark gray-silver), Femme-fi eyeshadow (highlighter), Urban Decay Ye-yo 24/7 Liner (white), Presriptives Grotto Eye Liner (green-blue), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Spectacle! beauty powder (powdery pink), Dior Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer (shimmery pink)
  • Lips: B-Babe lipstick (frosty pink), Red devil lipglass (coral with red tones)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Mutiny = Delft; Fineshine = Electra; Wisteria = Clear Sky Blue; Divine Night = Knight Divine; B-Babe = Bombshell; Red Devil = Lychee Luxe

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Mutiny pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Fineshine eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Wisteria eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Divine Night eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Ye-yo 24/7 Liner and Prescriptives Grotto liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Spectacle! beauty powder using the 129, highlight with Dior Rose Diamond shimmer. Apply B-Babe lipstick to lips, and then top with Red Devil lipglass for color and shine.
