Duochrome Eye Look

Hmm... this one looks really strange in pictures. Kinda... speckled and chunky? It looked really shiny and awesome in real life, constant color-shifting!

This was:
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Fyrinnae Envy Me applied wet on lid
MAC Green Brown Pigment applied wet in crease and lower lashline
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
Fyrinnae Nijiro Highlight
Cover Girl Lash Blast

Envy Me and Green Brown are both really neat. Envy Me is a light grey with a hint of taupe and it shifts to green (way more than my pictures show, it's much more interesting in real life!) and Green Brown is a very red-toned brown that has huge flecks of green duochrome shimmer. It somehow just looks silver in my pictures. Lame. It was really cool and obviously duochrome in real life. If you have these colors, definitely try this combo! Using Green Brown wet really amps up the duochrome effect but it also makes it harder to blend, so be careful. The reddish brown base stains so you have to work quickly.

I have to do a review on my new favorite eyeliner soon... I took the pictures for the review ages ago but then when I get to posting I always want to post eyes of the day or nail polish pictures!


  1. Smashing. I am not seeing the speckled and chunky to which you refer. Maybe I need new glasses... lol

    You apply liner like I could only dream of.

  2. I don't think this would look good one me but it looks great on you.

  3. Would you say Green Brown is similar to Bare Escentuals Creme De Menthe? Pretty look!

  4. Just a note to let you know that I tagged you. Part of the rules are I have to let you know, so if you'd like to do the tag and tag others, check my blog to copy and paste the questions to yours!

    Thanks. :-)

    I also want you to know that I really love your blog and you completely inspired me to start mine.

  5. I don't care for the look in the first pictures. The rest look fantastic!

  6. I am in complete envy of your ability to do your eyeliner with those perfect flicks at the end. I just can't get that right on me, ahha.
