Eyeshadow - January 12th, 2012
I’ve been wearing too much brown lately, so today I decided I needed to try out some new blues. I ordered Kraken from Detrivore Cosmetics, and got Restless as a free sample. They are both really excellent blue shades!
I have to admit, I ordered Kraken for the name as much as for the color. Who can resist something named after a giant mythical octopus?? Kraken the color is a deep blue-teal shade. It’s quite pretty, I can see myself wearing it a lot. Restless is a light blue eye shadow, and it has a really pretty satin-y finish. I don’t think I actually have a blue similar to this, so I’m really digging the shade. It’s a nice icy blue. I used Divinity from Persephone Minerals to highlight, since the greenish tint goes perfectly with Kraken.
The blush is Cargo’s BeachBlush in Sunset Beach. It’s a nice, soft pink color with just a touch of bronze to warm things up. I’m wearing Brazen Cosmetics’ Epiphany gloss, the pretty clear gloss with purple sparks.
