Green Machine with Jealousy Wakes Look

I received an email this morning that MAC just received the product samples for Jealousy Wakes, so I hope to have them in my hot hands tomorrow.  As soon as I do, you know I’ll be swatching up a storm! :)

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof all over the lid and above the crease with the 242 to lay down your eyeshadow base.  Apply Juxt eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid with the 239, then pat Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow on the outer two thirds of the lid.  Lightly blend Juxt by patting and lightly pulling the color over the middle of the lid to create a yellower green in the center.  Bring Jealousy Wakes into the crease by pressing the 239 into the crease horizontally, and then darkening the crease with Bottle Green eyeshadow with the 222.  Tap Juxt lightly above the crease to soften the edge, and then highlight beneath the brow with Trench eyeshadow. Next, apply Deviant liner on the lower lash line, and then smudge with Jealousy Wakes on the outer third and Juxt on the inner two-thirds. Coat lashes with Film Noir mascara to finish the look.

For cheeks, apply Betty Lou-Manizer on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Liberte Rouge Coco Shine for a complementing lip.

Chanel Liberte Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Liberte

Chanel Liberte (44) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) looks like it’ll be a brighter coral-red from the tube, but when swatched and applied, it’s a much softer color with only a hint of coral.  It’s a very played down mix of peach and pink.  It gives semi-opaque color coverage, but it seemed a little patchy compared to some of the other Rouge Coco Shines I’ve tried.    Rouge Coco Shines are supposed to deliver softer, sheerer color, so I would not expect full color coverage with this formula (consider Rouge Cocos or Rouge Allures for more color payoff).

It’s a sheerer version of MAC Temper Tantra (a touch pinker, too), which means it’s also similar to Korres #25 Liquid Lipstick. It’s slightly less pink compared to Chanel Libertine. MAC See Sheer is a little darker.  You can compare them all side-by-side in our Swatch Gallery.

This shade also wore off in about an hour and a half; I just can’t get it to stay on for long (most lipsticks last an average of four hours on me).  Rouge Coco Shines have many balm-like qualities; they’re glide on easily and feel very emollient, but they’re not as moisturizing as a balm.  These are slightly smaller than Chanel’s other lipsticks (0.10 oz. versions 0.12 oz.), but soft formula of the Rouge Coco Shines makes these easy to over-apply.

This shade should work well on both cooler and warmer skin tones, because it's not a strong coral, so it doesn't pull orange but more peach.
