EOTD: Maybelline Hyper Diamonds Blue...

Been too long since I did a soft and sparkly blue look, and when I'm in the mood, there's only one palette I reach for - Maybelline Hyper Diamonds BU-1 (I call it Sapphire). It's been on the market for many years, and still available I believe. I have a heap of turquoise and aqua blue shadows (which I love), but when I have a hankering for a more powdery purpley blue, then this is the one...

Apart from the shimmery white V pan, all the others are chock full of sparkles, which my camera simply can't deal with, but you can see a little bit of the glittery effect in the eye pics. I adore glitter, but it all gets too messy and involved when I have to use glue and wait for it to dry, so this collection is terrific because the sparkles are built-in, and there's actually very little fallout 

I used Chi Chi Waterproof Gel Eye Liner in Boys Boys Boys (which is a pale blue) as my base, and then added both blues over the top, with the lightest brightest one in the inner corner. The gorgeous deep blue went along the lower lashline, and for my waterline I used ModelsPrefer matte black kohl...

In the below pic I'm wearing DB Longwear 24 Hour Foundation, DB Lip & Cheek Rouge in the shade Irresistible, bhcosmetics Iris blush, and DB Longwear Lipstick in Shocking Pink...

Hope you survived the sales, and scored some brilliant bargains!

Take care of you,
