Halloween Looks: Sam, Sarah, Rachel, Kstelin

Temptalia Halloween Looks

Halloween Looks: Sam, Sarah, Rachel, Kstelin

So many of you sent in your fabulous looks for this month’s challenge!  Since these looks are often elaborate, I’m going to feature four per post.  My goal is to then include a few posts per day until we have featured all of this challenge’s participants.

To kick things off, we have Sam as a mermaid, Sarah as a dead doll, Rachel as Elphaba, and Kstelin as Marie Antoinette.

Check out their looks!

Lip Combo: MAC Courting Lilac Lipstick + Gone Romancin’ Dazzleglass Creme

MAC Courting Lilac Lipstick + Gone Romancin’ Dazzleglass Creme

Just for Fun: MAC Courting Lilac + Gone Romancin’

I think these two worked together really well, because they complement each other without overwhelming the other.  The most surprising part about this combination is how the gold sheen from Courting Lilac still peeks through despite the more opaque Gone Romancin’ dazzleglass creme.

Have you discovered any must-try lip combos from Tartan Tale?

Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow: Twilight Rose

Estee Lauder Twilight Rose Pure Color Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a softened pale pink-peach with a frosted shimmer. Estee Lauder describes this shade as a “cool light pink,” and it has a satin finish, which is means it has a “soft, lustrous sheen.” Nothing about this seems cool-toned, and the pink is quite subtle. It reads rather peach in the pan and still leans that way when swatched.

I actually think this would work really well as a cheek highlighter–I initially thought it was a blusher when I first swatched it! Similarly, it would be a nice all-over color on the lid to brighten up the eyes. I think it may be on the frostier side for a brow highlight, but it could work; it would depend more on personal preferences. It has a nice, smooth texture, but this is definitely a softer and sheerer color, so I don’t know if I’d call it a rich shade.
