EOTD: bhcosmetics Dark Rose Bronze & Green...

Another look from the bhcosmetics Dark Rose palette  I don't think there are any shades in this collection that don't compliment each other, which makes it one I reach for often. And putting together a green and gold/bronze hued outfit is also a regular occurrence for me, in fact almost once per week, and I can count on this palette to always deliver a pretty look to match... 


Over essence White Kajal, I applied the bronze on the far right all over the lid, blended the green along the lower lashline and outer corner, and pressed the matte pinky brown into the crease...


For a bit of extra oomph, I patted the new Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow in Copper Fling over the whole top lid with my finger. This is a lovely semi-sheer cream that comes in a teeny tube, but it packs a mammoth punch as far as adding dimension and shimmer is concerned. So far I've only seen it in copper, gold and silver, but according to their website, there's a soft green, a lilac and a platinum as well which I'm busting to get my hands on. One word of warning though - if you blink before it dries, it transfers to other areas in a flash...
For the waterline, I chose essence Kajal in I Have A Green...


For my face I used Mirenesse Liquid Silk in Vienna. I'll be reviewing this makeup soon (along with quite a few others) as I've embarked on ANOTHER much needed kit refresh - foundations this time around, and as I'm discovering, there are some terrific ones available for bargain prices. Cheeks were a base of Lacura Beauty Minerals Cream Blush in Soft Coral (also soon to be reviewed - love 'em!), with a light dusting of the middle pan from the BYS Coral Me In trio. Lips were MBA Cosmetics Spiced Pumpkin...


Take care of you,

  5. The finished effect is great, but it seems weird to put a cream over power shadow, even if it is semi-sheer. It seems to work though. That Mirenesse foundation is perfect, you could throw out all others in your kit refresh. It IS expensive, that's the only problem. It's luck you got it on sale.

    1. Lol I get what you mean about the MNY cream hon - I guess it's an eye shadow "enhancer" cos it's way too sheer for me to wear alone. The foundation is lovely, but I've found at least one other already that's just as good for a fraction of the price - reviews will be up in the next couple of weeks ♥

    1. Hey Sarah - I only just happened to notice it up near the top of the display where they usually put the new products. As a rule I'm not into these sorts of shimmery additives, but the tube was too cute to pass up ♡
