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

Even though Mood Ring is gorgeous, and the packaging for the eyeshadow trios is sleek and up my alley, I just can’t bring myself to buy it quite yet. So I set out to dupe a look I know I’d do as soon as I got the trio instead… BTW, clean your brushes often! I went to fix part of the inner lid, and what do you know, I get some teal-black, too.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Shroom eyeshadow on inner lid, Aquavert eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on middle lid, Cloudburst eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on outer crease, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer lid, Shroom eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Black Funk/Pop Blue dual edge pencil on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on lower inner lash line, Plushblack mascara, and Brun eyeshadow for brows. I wore Springsheen blush on cheeks with Guerlain Mythic Parfait Pressed Meterorite to highlight cheeks. I had Soft Lust lipstick with Vital Spark and Tartlette lipglass on my lips.

* This look is meant to replicate one that could be made using Heatherette Trio 1. Shroom = Hoppin’; Mood Ring = Aquavert, Newly Minted, Shimmermoss (They all get muddled together in this look – Aquadisiac + Newly Minted would also work; Meadowland is a good dupe on its own); Cloudburst = Cloudburst eyeshadow (launched with Blue Storm) — can be replaced with Carbon and layer Shimmermoss (tap it) for the slight blue reflects from Cloudburst.

** The lips are meant to also duplicate Heatherette products: Soft Lust = Lollipop Lovin’ (no green reflects in this version); Vital Spark + Tartlette = Sock Hop with shimmer.
