I decided I wanted to play with some of my new goodies I’m testing out right now! You know how I was a bit disappointed in Bobbi Brown’s Nude & Lip palette? Well, Dior’s Goldfever Quint was much more up my alley. Given, they’re frostier and shimmery shadows compared to the BB palette, I was able to create an actual LOOK out of it! Plus, the soft white gold? Divine.

I used MAC Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Dior Goldfever Quint center shadow on inner lid, Dior Goldfever Quint bottom left shadow on middle of lid, Dior Goldfever Quint top right shadow on outer lid, Dior Goldfever Quint top left shadow on outer crease, Dior Goldfever Quint bottom right shadow on outer crease and lid, and MAC Black Funk/Pop Blue dual edge liner on lower lash line. I had MAC Brun eyeshadow to fill in brows and MAC Plushblack plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore MAC True Romantic blush with Guerlain Mythic Parfait Pressed Meteorites on cheeks. I had MAC Cherish lipstick (like Fleshpot) with MAC Style Minx lipglass on my lips.

So I finally decided to do a look using Dior’s Pink May Quint from their Spring 2008 collection, which is awfully pretty look at. It really does work well with the spring palette, but considering how rainy it has been, I felt like I needed to darken it somehow. I decided on darker lips, which was a mistake, as they were just too dark and too reddish/burgundy for this look. Next time, I’d opt for pairing it with a medium-dark pink instead. The lip color was cool, just not with this look. I even tried to fix it, but no luck – only way to do it was to take it all off (which I hate to do!).

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Dior Pink May Quint light peach on inner lid, Dior Pink May Quint light warm pink-purple on middle of lid, Dior Pink May Quint dark purple on outer lid and crease, Clue eyeshadow on outer crease, Dior Pink May Quint light white-gold above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Dior Pink May Quint light white-gold on lower lash line. I wore Petalpoint blush with Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight and Sculpt sculpting powder to contour. I had Wild ‘Bout You lipstick with Crystal Rose lipglass on my lips in the first set. In the second set, I added Negligee lipglass and Backlit 3D glass.

I think I’m actually going to be late to school because I’m posting this, LOL! I have about… eight minutes to shower and get ready before I need to be out the door. Seriously, do you ever just get caught up doing internet-related things, whether it be browsing or writing someone an email? I always fall prey to it! Ask my boyfriend – he has to drag me away from Temptalia sometimes or else nothing in my life would get done! (Honestly, it’s not quite THAT bad!) Anyway, I did this look on Saturday, figuring I’d give Soft Ochre paint pot a shot (despite the huge paint pot following, I am not among it), and I rather liked how it ended up coming together. Happy hump day – hope you all are having a fab week! I hate Wednesdays, mostly because it’s my longest day of school (9am-4pm), and STARBUCKS! is the only thing that can get me through these kinds of days.  *edited to add* Totally wasn’t late to school.  In fact, five minutes early!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Nanogold eyeshadow on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on middle of lid, Velvet Moss eyeshadow on outer lid, Femme Noir eyeshadow on outer crease, Nanogold eyeshadow above crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow, and Feline kohl power on lower lash line. I wore Margin blush with Light Flush mineralize skinfinish to highlight on my cheeks. I had Tiger Tiger lipstick with Vital Spark lipglass and Tres Cher lipglass on my lips.
