Pandamonium + greetings from Dublin

No unfortunately I'm not heading on a trip....though I wish I was! I finally cracked open my MAC Pandamonium quad to do a look with it.

You can see how well the Lorac Visual Effects mascara lengthens here. The brush has an odd shape and takes some getting used to though.

The MAC quad colours are nice, but the violet-pink colour in the quad requires quite a bit of packing on to show up.

I received a lovely package the other day all the way from Dublin! Liz had an anniversary contest/giveaway for her blog, and I was one of the winners :) She knew I was interested in the Barry M dazzle dusts so she got some for me, along with a Dublin postcard :D

The dazzle dusts come in small open glass jars, the colours from left to right are:
Kingfisher, Aqua Gold and Midnight

Photobucket


The colours look amazing, especially Midnight and Aqua Gold which look perfect for summer! They are very finely milled, the texture reminds me of NYX pigments or Annabelle pigments, but I much prefer Barry M's colour selection AND packaging format. The NYX pigments were particularly bad because the tiny bottles would dispense too much or leak sometimes, but these Barry M ones are a lot more practical!

Swatches:

Thank you Liz! Will be posting a look with these colours in the near future :)

I love the way you blended and did your eyeshadow! Benefit's Lady's choice is pretty. I'm actually selling it in a blog sale because I'm scared of "full color" lipsticks. Now I'm having 2nd thoughts... :P

Very pretty look. love the dazzle dusts!

Jamilla Camel said...

Beautiful colors!

Liz said...

I can't wait to see what looks you create using those Barry M dazzle dusts!
I think Aqua Gold is a really unique colour. The iridescence is very hard to capture on camera.

Cris said...

Nice look :D!
And congrats on winning :). I only own one Dazzle Dust right now but I'll probably swap for more :-P.

Michelle (Lipstick Rules) said...

Very pretty look.

Lady's choice lipstick is one of my new faves.

Atenea said...

i like so much this blue shadows!

MiuMiu said...

i'm loving the purple shadow. i want to use purples more often, but it seems like too much for school time XD

Aradani said...

Very pretty face! I love the blending. I have trouble getting violet pinks to show up vividly too, I think the cause is having warmer skin. and I hate having to pack on shadow- especially if it's MAC bc the whole reason for buying MAC goes out the window.
those barry m piggies look very pretty.

gio said...

This look is very pretty, purple looks great on you!

Congrats on winning! The Barry M Dazzle Dusts look gorgeous! I have Kingfisher too and I love it, it's a beautiful shade. Can't wait to see you do a look with these.
