EOTD using MAC 6 Mystic Cool Eye Shadows Palette

Yesterday I met up with Nic Nic of bang bang she shoots and had a wonderful time! I'll do a separate post later about our meetup. I've always imagined her to be a bit tall and svelte so I was so surprised by how petite she is! I used my new MAC palette that I picked up while in Las Vegas. I don't know why I didn't purchase this when it was released back in 2009.

I recreated my look today because I didn't have time to take pictures yesterday.

Products used:

Face Base:
Missha BB Boomer
Maybelline FitMe Foundation 120 and 125
Maybelline FitMe Powder 120
Shiseido Maquillage Moisture Finish Powdery UV Ochre 20
Dermablend Professional Cover Cream

Color Makeup:
MAC 6 Mystic Cool Eye Shadows Palette
Naked Palette--Creep
NARS Orgasm/Laguna set
Koji Eyelash Curler
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner--Black
FairyDrops Scandal Queen Mascara
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Laura Mercier Gloss Stick--Sugar Plum

I used all 6 colors from the MAC palette and blended them together. I also used Creep from Naked palette but can use any other darker black-colored eyeshadow. This I use only in the outer "v" of upper eyelids. I couldn't find my favorite K-Palette eyeliner so I used the Bobbi Brown Gel liner instead. I haven't used it in quite a while so it was a bit difficult. I went over the gel liner with Creep to set it

I also curled my eyelashes and used Fairydrops Scandal Queen mascara for my upper lashes. The curl held pretty well considering I didn't use any mascara base. I used the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara for my bottom lashes.

NARS Laguna used as a bronzer/contour and Orgasm on top, concentrated more in the apple of my cheeks.

Laura Mercier Stick Gloss in Sugar Plum was used on my lips. I really love this stick gloss as it is like a really glossy lipstick. It's not sticky at all yet feels watery/glossy. It helps to keep my lips moisturized. I'm not sure if this is an LE or not but I traded/purchased it from Amy Naree when she ran a blog sale. I've never used a Laura Mercier product before and am really pleased with this.

Although the separate colors do not show up in my EOTD, I really do like this color palette. It blends really easily and I like it when I can use a single palette instead of having to mix and match a whole lot. May have to consider taking this on my next trip. Sorry, I realize that my EOTD really all do look so similar, even when using different colors.

Your looks are always so elegant and feminine! The colors you choose go together so well!

Yay for meetups! I would also have imagined Nic Nic to be really tall and svelte!! Will you show some pics of the meetup? ;)

Brianna said...

Glad you got to meet up with Nic, she is so nice and funny!

I really like your EOTD, its rare when you can find a palette that you use all the colors least for me it is.

@Jess--Thank you so much for the sweet compliment. I think the same of your EOTD's too.

Might show a pic or two of the meetup. Haven't decided yet.

@Brianna--I agree, which is why I never used to like to buy palettes, only singles but now I can see the attraction of palettes but only if all of the colors are usable. Naked Palette is one that is awesome, although not being a neutrals kind of person, I like to add a pop of color so still use something else and not just that palette.

I'm so glad that you go to meet Nic - she is so funny and pretty! I've met you, Nic and Brianna. Nic and Brianna have met each other, and you've met Nic. Now all we have to do is make sure you and Brianna meet each other to make a full circle!

I do love your EOTD! I bought a MAC 6 pan palette recently, but I'm not loving the pigmentation. Hope yours is better!
