Greed EOTD : Wet & Wild palette

EOTD : Greed palette from Wet & Wild
Colors I used :
pale shimmery purple color all over the lid
black shimmery color : outer V and crease
peach matte color : to blend
beige matte (top of the palette) : Highlight

a whole look with a single palette : hooray !


Dupe alert again for MAC :

Carbon : the black matte
Black tied : shimmery black
Samoa silk : matte peach (but I don't have it so it's just a guess !)
Vex : shimmery purple-grey (again a guess but pay off is VERY bad so I wouldn't consider it a good dupe)


feline khôl liner (MAC) and Mascara Marcelle Volume precision in black were used. Nobody was injured in this particular sequence of events...


FOTD :
Annabelle Skin true foundation
Annabelle Zebra bronzer
NYX Angel blush
Brow-zing in dark from Benefit for the brows


JOTD :
earrings from ten thousand villages
little black Onyx elephant given by Vicky



First impressions on the Greed palette :
The bad : The pay off in 2 colors is really poor : the shimmery peach and the shimmery pale grey-purple . It's a shame cause they look gorgeous in the pan.
The good : ...But if you don't have Carbon (MAC) or Black Tied (MAC), it's definitively worth it for the price of the palette... I like the matte peach color and I don't have nothing looking like this particular color in my collection so it's a nice addition. The highlight matte color is interesting because I tend to use paler colors. I noticed that using a "darker" highlight was good to "warm" my look (in this case a very dark smokey...Nice find !)

  1. I like the monochromatic smokey eye look. I know there's been a lot of talk about Wet N Wild but I'm still not convinced the quality has gone up from before. Btw, do I spot a butterfly necklace??
