I tried out Fresh Green Mix yesterday over Cash Flow paint pot – interesting combo. I think I will try the same duo today, but over a green base instead. I LOVE Dainty – anyone who thinks it isn’t pigmented enough for deeper skintones is nuts. Totally popped on my cheeks (I’m NC30) with EASE. I used the 129 brush (finally have a use for it!), and it worked like a dream.

I used Cash Flow paint pot on lid, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow duo (solid side) (LE) all over lid, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow duo (marbled side) (LE) on outer crease and lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow to highlight, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow duo (solid side) (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Dainty mineralize blush on cheeks. I wore Fast Thrill lipstick (LE) with Politely Pink lipglass (LE) on my lips.

This is a look I did on Wednesday, but I’m just getting around to posting now. It’s the look I wore for my actual oral argument, which I got complimented on, so yay, guess it’s court-approved! :)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow all over lid, Cork eyeshadow on outer crease and lid, Espresso lightly in outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above brow and on crease, UD Stash 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Margin blush on cheeks. I had Sandy B lipstick with Full On Lust lipglass (LE) on my lips.

You know, this combo got quite muddy, so I wouldn’t really say this worked out well. It took a LOT of work to get it to be “presentable,” you know? It was like, as soon as you put the colors on, it was mud-central. Really weird experience for me (I don’t think I have ever had anything turn muddy on me before!). I don’t know if it’s me or the quint, but one of us needs to improve STAT! On another note, though, all of the colors are incredibly pigmented. Has anyone picked up this quint yet?

It’s Saturday morning, the sky is lookin’ gray, but I’m pretty sure it’ll clear up and the temps will start to soar.

I used Dior’s Earth Tones Quint for this particular look. I used the center shadow (goldish) for the inner lid, the bottom left (the reddish color) shadow on the middle lid, the bottom right (brownish color) on the outer lid and crease, and the upper right shadow (softest) to highlight my brow. I wore Dior Impression Cuir on my cheeks. I had Dior Pink Drama Lip Color and Dior Delicious Plum Creme de Gloss on my lips.

You can check out pictures and swatches (plus my review) of these Dior products here.
