    I haven't done a colorful make-up look lately..My neutral looks are getting a little old and boring so i decided to take my blues and greens out to play. I was inspired by the look i saw on the MUA at MAC today..i went to have my 223 exchanged for the 219. Since it was an exchange, and 219 is $5 cheaper i think, i got another eyeshadow. i asked 'em if they have any limited ones as i only purchase the permanent ones in pan refills. The MUA took out a box full of limited edition eyeshadows from different collections..i saw fab & flashy (from the C-Shock collection), they still had 2 of the Metal-X cream shadows (the blue and pink one) i passed up on those. They had a couple of the Mineralize e/s, Family Silver *which i already have* and Earthly Riches. i was going to get the latter but, i grabbed fertile e/s instead. I'm not actually sure on which collection it came out with but it's a really nice plum color and the best part is, it's Veluxe Pearl!..yay..i love Veluxe Pearl eyeshadows!!so anyhoo, i was inspired by the look the MA had on. i asked what colors she used, they were: Electric Eel, Aquadisiac, Gorgeous Gold and Tilt, then Indigo eye pencil..and the only eyeshadow i have among those is Aquadisiac..this calls for resourcefulness, i had to make-do with what i here goes:

    Inspiration: she actually swatched 'em on the back of my hand
    she used soft ochre as base under gorgeous gold, tilt, electric eel then aquadisiac on top of electric eel

    My take:

    Products Used:

    Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Foundation in Natural Beige
    Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Concealer
    MAC Loose Blot Powder in Medium Dark

    Rollickin' p/p (outer half)
    Overgrown e/s (inner corner)
    Goldmine e/s (on top of Overgrown e/s)
    Parrot e/s (mid lid)
    Blue Calm pro e/s (outer corner) first time to use this since i got it in Vegas last January..i'm in love..uber-pigmented
    Shockwave e/s (from Fafi Eyes 2)(above the crease, to blend)
    Ricepaper (highlight)
    *Since i don't have MAC's indigo eye pencil, i used:
