What better way to kick off summer AND December than with a brand new eye shadow (like I needed another one? ha ha) and one that's the colour of this month's birthstone...
I LOVE this shade and I LOVE this new shadow from essence - it's so vivid and creamy and sparkly and metallic, and there's very little fallout. This was applied dry and my mind is boggling at how it will turn out when applied with a damp brush, so watch this space lol...
It's from a new range called metal glam, and this particular one is called Jewel Up The Ocean - isn't it just divine? Only $4.25, and there's quite a few in the set, although this is the only one that really caught my eye. Apparently there's an orange called Miss Tangerine, but they didn't have it at my local Target - oh how I miss not having a Priceline nearby :-(
|I took this photo with a flash so you could see all the pretty sparkles...|
It just so happens that this jewel shade is almost identical to my Mirenesse Face Gel in Blue Moon (discontinued) and so that's what I used as a base, and to line the waterline.
I smoked the outer corner with UD Zero, and then added a very fine line of MUA matte charcoal (shade #20) along the crease for extra definition. Added MNY Master Precise Liquid Liner on the lower lashline with some Jewel over the top, and MNY The Falsies waterproof mascara.
Such a gorgeous colour, and I'm totally TOTALLY hooked. If only they'd bring out a purple or a green, but then again, the bliss might be too much, even for me :-)
Take care of you,
