EOTD: Fresh Winter Picnic
Eyeshadow - October 22nd, 2011

I cleaned up and reorganized all my makeup and realized I haven’t used any of my palettes for months. I decided to bust out Fresh’s Winter Picnic palette today for a change of pace. Fresh isn’t selling it anymore, but you can still find it around the net. The Winter Picnic palette consists of six colors: a pale lilac-y color, a white pearl, medium khaki taupe, deep chocolate, muted sky blue with greenish undertones, and a dusty pink with shimmer. I love Fresh’s eyeshadows, although they do tend to go on a bit sheer – but you can build the color, and they’re quite blendable. For best results, use over an eyeshadow primer.

The colors in the palette are more matte than shimmery, which creates a very rich deep effect. Today I used Mist on Everest (the muted sky blue) on the lid, with Hyacinth (the lavender-lilac) in the inner corners. Dry Earth (the chocolate color) went in the crease, and I used Moonlit Path (the white pearl) as a highlight. Moonlit Path is probably the sparkliest color of all six. I used a grey pencil liner to keep things a little softer than black or brown.

My cheeks are Cargo’s BeachBlush in Sunset Beach. On my lips I’m wearing Paul & Joe lipstickĀ 064 RPM.

    Fresh doesn’t seem to be selling eyeshadows anymore, which is too bad – they’re some of my favorite pressed eyeshadows. Otherwise, their products are nice but pricey.

    I love your looks. Been following you for about a week now and I’ve purchased samples from about 85% of the companies you’ve reviewed. I can’t wait to try out some of your awesome looks!
