Fog, Scoria & Phloof! EOTD

Hi gals!

Today I wanted to try one of my new Jenulence matte sample shadows as well as the foundation and one of the blushes that I also ordered at the same time. I've never been into matte shadows before, but I seem to like them better the older I get. I get older?!? WTF? No freakin' way! :)
Anyway; I love the texture of this shadow. When attempting to use matte shadows in the past, I often felt they were hard to apply well; they crumbled easily and/or were a PITA to distribute evenly. This is not the case here however; this one applied like a dream, I'm really impressed!

Shade descriptions:
  • Fog - dark grayish-green
  • Scoria - dark blue green with glimmery lemon and lime highlights
  • Phloof! - Frosted off-white (Frost)
  • Smut - Muted black with red shimmer (Velvet)

Jenulence Fog - all over eyelid up to brow bone and lower lashline
MAC Phloof! - highlighter, inner part of lid
Cory Cosmetics Scoria - outer v and crease
MAC Smut - wetlined on upper lashline

Honey you look gorgeous! The colors of your eye makeup brings out a grey tone to your eyes. Very pretty. You did a nice application of it all. I'm well past what "experts" say not to wear certain finishes in makeup. I decided last year to do as I want. I'm not wearing makeup to look foolish but I wear all the color I love. Why play it safe? We only get one go around in life and I prefer to do it my own way.

Whoa! You look like a Scandinavian ice princess! The colours are great on you and the scarf really brings everything together - talk about accessorising right! :)

Vanessa said...

Lucy;
thank you SO much! And I so agree with everything you say, we only have one life (as far as we know ;)) and we should enjoy doing and wearing all the things we like, instead of what people tell us we should ;)

Nixxy;
Scandinavian ice princess?! Well, that's some kind of a compliment; thank you so much, darling! Much appreciated :)
