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...

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

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??

  2. Soft and sexy!:D
