Five Color Violet Underground Eyeshadow Palette – S$80
Employing shadow with edge, this jewel-toned palette incorporates bold shades with luxe textures. The tribrid technology aka Gelée Powder Eyeshadows -created with part liquid, part powder and part gel- can be worn wet or dry for a subtle shine finish.
The case is a violet blue that befits the theme, and is also one of the featured colors in the palette. The other 4 shades is a rich mix of bronze, fuchsia, beige-peach and matte black.
The thunderbolt motifs, I believe, pay homage to David Bowie who pioneered Glam Rock in the early 70s and his 1972 track – “Ziggy Stardust.”
Swatches – Dry
Swatches – Primed with Too Faced Shadow Insurance
I predictably use the beige-peach and chocolate shades for a wearable smoky look during the day. But when the night falls, I favor the violet-blue topped with Fire Sapphire. Hopefully the gloomy weather will buzz off for me to show what I’ve done!
Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Black Iris – S$26
A deep aubergine that will add drama to your fall look. From the get go, I knew that it resembles my trusty O.P.I. Lincoln Park At Midnight Nail Lacquer – edgy, mysterious and vampish.
Comparison – Black Iris & Lincoln Part At Midnight
