  1. The purple and the rust colours look gorgeous together. I was on the fence with the purple pigment but I might get it now!

  2. The lipstick looks distracting; it was the first thing I looked at – very pretty!

    You pull off the es colors really well, without looking muddy. I can’t seem to make matt es work on my lower lashes…:(

  3. Thanks AtelierGal! The colors I used weren’t matte (one is a highly shimmery pigment and the color is glitter).

    To wear matte eyeshadow, you really need to pack it on for it to show. You can try lining your lower lashline with a gel liner before topping it with es – it will bring out the color more.
