Coralberry Cleopatra

Salut mes belles!!

Happy Monday, hope everyone is well :)) Today's post is a quick makeup review and a maquillage du jour using some Bare Minerals, NYX, Sephora and Revlon makeup. This month I'm challenging myself to explore eyeshadows outside of my Urban Decay palettes, just to break my addiction and show some love to other awesome cosmetics. So, here goes:
P. S. my hungry birds necklace is from Anthropologie

Coralberry Cleo
To achieve my brown shimmery smokey eye, I used the following products: 

On my lips, I'm wearing Revlon creme lipstick in Coralberry

Cleopatra is a gorgeous golden sandy mineral eyeshadow milled to a fine, almost powdery consistency. I used a sticky base (NYX jumbo pencil in Dark Brown) to help the minerals and tiny flecks of glitter adhere to my lids and stay put all day. As lovely as the shadow looks on its own, it doesn't have the staying power to be used on its own -- so make sure to use a primer and a base underneath. As with most pigments and/or loose shadows, this is normal, so I wouldn't consider it a drawback. The reason I sometimes prefer loose shadows over pressed shadows is that they are more versatile and pigmented. With a gold base underneath, for example, Cleopatra would look completely different on the eyes :)

Revlon super lustrous creme lipstick in Coralberry is a lovely golden coral shade that looks great on light, medium, olive, tan and dark skin. This lipstick is universally flattering, so if you're looking for a safe yet pretty coral, try Coralberry. I seriously suggest this lip color to anyone who loves Nars Niagara--although they are not exact dupes, these shades are in the same family, and the Revlon pick is much much cheaper. Coralberry has a slight shimmer (great for thinner lips) and a creamy finish that feels great on the skin and never dries out the lippies. 

A slightly darker day look :)
