OVERALL, Cool Heat is refreshing.  You have colors like Solar White and Warming Trend, which are easily suitable to anyone–neutral and color fans alike; but then you also have Warm Chill, which is a great introduction to color and Gulf Stream and Cool Heat for those who adore bright pops of color.  Climate Blue is a color that is both gorgeous and not one we see often–maybe once prior, if that.  I think I was most surprised by the slimshines, because they had much more color pay off than previous slimshines I’ve tried.  I also think that those who may find some of the eyeshadow colors too much, may find that the slimshines are much more up their alley.

Temptalia Asks You

What order do you do your makeup? Eyes, lips, face? Face, lips, eyes? Any reason for that order?

You know, I had a real struggle trying to figure out the right lips for this look! I loved the eyes, though. I actually did the cheeks first, then the eyes, and left the lips for last (which is usual for me). I still wasn’t convinced this was the right lip combo, but I was at a loss as to what else instead. What would you have done?

I used Your Ladyship pigment (LE) on lid, Rose Blanc eyeshadow (LE) all over lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer crease, Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow in crease, Parfait Amour eyeshadow on outer lid, Rose Blanc eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line and inner crease, Shroom eyeshadow on brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Don’t Be Shy blush (LE) on cheeks with Lightly Lilac beauty powder (PRO) to highlight. I wore Florabundi lipstick (LE) with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Your Ladyship = Vanilla; Rose Blanc = Nylon; Climate Blue = Electric Eel + Parfait Amour; Rose Blanc = Nylon; Don’t Be Shy = Well Dressed; Florabundi = Creme de la Femme; Cult Fave = Pinkarat
