Not so Taupe Temptress

Here's another look I did with a Maybelline Eye Studio quad - Taupe Temptress:

The colours in this quad are more shimmery than Sapphire Siren.

The usual - middle two shades over the mobile lid, dark shade in outer corner, and lightest shade to highlight inner corner of eyes. Also highlighted under the brow with Marcelle Minerals eyeshadow in Playa.

(not sure what was up with my lashes - I must've not curled them yet in this pic)

Although the colours looked slightly berry-ish to me in the palette, they come off on my skin as being more brownish taupe. I think this would suit warmer, more tan skintones better. Also, the grey-green contacts didn't help - green contacts would've made the colour pop more.


Full face - paired with Canmake Cream Cheek blush in 07 Coral Peach, and OCC Lip Tar in Grandma (yes I finally used it!)

I'm not sure if this colour really went with the quad...but anyways at least you get to see the Lip Tar in action. The colour was very pigmented and intense. I needed less than a drop for this amount of coverage. It wasn't as drying as I expected, but it does go best with moisturized, non-flakey lips.

Definitely not a colour my grandma would wear! Lol :D

Ooh, that quad actually looks much nicer on than I would have expected - very pretty!! And omg I looooove Grandma on you! It's such a shame they're on the drying side. I'm afraid to try them b/c my lips are so ridiculously sensitive... ;_;
