Fall Colors Eye Look

This one is from Tuesday. I woke up and suddenly it felt like fall, so I wanted fall colors! I think this one turned out great and flattered my eye color, seems like the darkness of the colors was offset by the sparkle on Asphalt so it didn't look too dull.

This was:
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Aromaleigh Asphalt applied wet on lid
Stila Ebony in crease
Fyrinnae Dark Magic over Ebony in crease and on lower lashline
NARS Night Fever applied wet as liner (about the only thing it's good for!)
Laura Geller Wonder Wand highlight
Cover Girl Lash Blast

Check out all the sweet multicolored sparkle in Asphalt. It's such a deceiving color. I had a sample of it in a bag and it looked black, but then I decided to order a full size cause, well, it was my last chance... glad I did because it's a really unusual and gorgeous color. Tons and tons of sparkle, my pictures don't even capture half of the rich color and outrageous sparkle of it. It looks black or charcoal but once it's on it looks more copper or even sort of purple-bronze in some lights.

And Fyrinnae Dark Magic is fantastic and perfect for fall. Rich metallic burgundy-red with blue-purple sparkles. Love this color. Going to have to pick up a full size next time I order.

Now I'm trying to come up with some good creative looks using only Evil Shades colors... I've been really digging Heartless Queen, Steele Green *sniffle* and Devil's Bonfire... swatches soon!


  1. I love the look you came up with! Dark Magic looks so fantastic on you!

  2. Gorgeous. This might be my favorite eye look you've ever posted. Simply stunning.

  3. Your eye looks are all so stunning! You have to know that since you've been posting these, I've gone out and purchased four of the HIP metallic sets, as well as Cover Girl LastBlast. You're a bad influence on my bank account, but a fantastic influence for beauty! Thank you for what you do!

  4. Ur makeup looks r so Beautiful!!!!

  5. Love, love, love Asphalt! I, too, got the little black sample bag and was unimpressed until I swatched it...then I bought two full-sized jars, stat!

    My favorite way to use it is as a lip gloss. It reminded me of MAC glimmerglass called "Bling Black" that I have almost used up and dread the day it is finished. I tried applying a bit over lip balm, to prevent the shimmers from falling off, and then a layer of thick, gooey, clear gloss.

    It has a similar look to the MAC- slightly darkened lip color but with copper and gold highlight instead of just the gold. An acquired taste, perhaps, but dupe-y enough for me! <3

  6. Very pretty. Love the different shades of shimmer in Asphalt. Another winning eye look.
