When I posted my haul from The Body Shop (click here to see), Trinh wanted to see swatches of the cosmetics I bought. Let me rephrase that she bothered me for several days... lol~ :P I'm finally posting up the swatches and a look I did with the eyeshadow duo.
Here's how the eyeshadow duo looks open. The top color is Eucalyptus Grey and the bottom is Gris Eucalyptus. It's #02 from their eyeshadow duo line.
Now for the swatches...
Hopefully, you can see. I thought it was pretty pigmented on my hands and in this picture, on the bottom of my arm (pale part). For that reason, I bought this duo.
Here's what I came up with using this eyeshadow duo. It's also the look I had when I met up with my makeup buddy last weekend. :)
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Pots & Pans on the lid
The Body Shop Duo Shadow:
* Eucalyptus Grey on the lid
* Gris Eucalyptus on the outer "V," crease, and the bottom
CG Sugar Rush as highlight
L'oreal HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black
Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Duo in Smashing Beacon on the inner corner and bottom 1/3
Hard Candy Mascara
In honestly, this is the second time using this eyeshadow duo. The first time I actually applied it without a color base, and can I tell you I had to layer this eyeshadow for the color to show up! :( Even with layering the color, I hardly can see it *sigh*. I didn't want to be quick in judgment so I gave it another go with this eyeshadow... lol~ It came out much better, as well as, pigmented when I used a color base. The only problem I had was that after I used an eyelash curler, the eyeshadow started coming off *sigh*.
I also swatched the eyeliners I bought just in case my kim-chi eating buddy ask for it... lol~
On the left is #03 Glistening Blue and the right is #02 Mercury Shine.
Here's a swatch on my hand.
PLEASE ignore the eyeliners on the outside! I took this picture for another post in the future... hehe~ :X The second one is #02 Mercury Shine and the third one is #03 Glistening Blue. I especially love the color for Glistening Blue, but it's so watery!!!
For that reason I'm about to see if I can get my money back. :X I'm not to thrilled about The Body Shop cosmetics line, but I do LOVE their body line especially their lotion! :)
