Swatches courtesy of Jamie!  These make the Neon2 pigments look MUCH more wearable, don’t you think?  I ordered a set yesterday, so I’ll be sure to swatch them for you whenever they arrive (my bet is on Wednesday, unfortunately!).

I really liked how this looked in person! It seems a bit TOO much in the close-ups, though. I can’t tell you how pretty Elite looks over Pink Pearl nor how lovely that golden-warm brown color looks with pinks and purple.

Happy weekend, all!

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid (in place of Warming Trend), Stars ‘N Rockets eyeshadow on middle of lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had True Romantic blush (LE) with Lightly Lilac beauty powder on cheeks. I wore Utter Pervette lipstick (LE) with Crystal Rose 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!

Elite = Woodwinked; Climate Blue = Deep Truth + Parfait Amour; Femme-fi = Shroom; True Romantic = Breath of Plum; Utter Pervette = Pervette; Crystal Rose = Stars ‘N Rockets + gloss

Cool Heat look for y’all! :)

FYI, when I spoke to SCP PRO, the MA said the Neon pigments are NOT eye-safe except the green one. Well, “not recommended.” I asked if the MA had any idea why (I assumed it was the red dye), and she said it was because a lot of people have reactions to the red dye which is in like four of them? so yeah. I did order all six today from the Texas North Park PRO store, because Vegas/SCP don’t have the yellow one, and SF & LA don’t have them at all!

I used Gold Dusk pigment (LE) on lid, Warm Chill eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Parrot+Big T eyeshadows (both LE) in place of Cool Heat eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Blue Flame eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Warm Chill eyeshadow (LE) above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Greenplay liquidlast liner on upper lash line, Overgrown eyeshadow (LE) over Greenplay, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Sunbasque blush on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight. I wore High 90s slimshine (LE) with Tartlette 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!

Gold Dusk = White Gold + Golden Lemon; Warm Chill = Juxt (closest permanent); Parrot = Sea Me + Shimmermoss; Big T = Electric Eel + Shimmermoss (different texture); Blue Flame = Deep Truth + Freshwater; Femme-fi = Shroom; Overgrown = Bitter; Feline = Graphblack; High 90s = Skew

The Red Lips Challenge went so well, and it has made consider whether we should institute monthly challenges–let me know what you think in the comments.  For June, I want to see you rock BLUE!  In the challenge image, I’ve included six different blue looks I’ve done, and you can see that they vary from all-blue to subtle blue to ultra dark, smoky black and blue.  I’d like to think challenges are meant to encourage you to try things you haven’t otherwise done before.

The Challenge | Rock some blue!  Figure out where you are in your comfort zone, and then take it to the next level…

  • “Blues are pretty to look at, but I’d never wear them!” | Your Challenge:  Wear it in the comfort of your own home.
  • “I’ve tried it, but I couldn’t wear it out” | Your Challenge: Wear it to the grocery store! Round up some pals (or get the man in your life) to take you somewhere hip and trendy.
  • “There is this one blue…” | Your Challenge: Incorporate your favorite blue with other blues (or blue-like colors) that you haven’t yet tried.
  • “I rock blues all the time!” | Your Challenge: Encourage others that wearing blue is fun and sexy, not at all Mimi-esque!

Are you ready for Temptalia’s Blue Eyes Challenge? If you take the challenge, I encourage you to submit the results in picture form to [email protected], as well as all testimonials and written results are happily taken–just include your comment on this post!  If you’re a little wary of your photos being on the blog, think about posting them on the forum, where only members can view your photos.
