Sunday Stash Shopping #32: Gunmetal and Black

Using the Urban Decay 15 Anniversary Palette, I’ve done a colourful peacock look with the teal and blue, another one with purples, so I thought I’d go silver, grey and black today. The 3 shades I’ll be using are Gunmetal, Ace and Blackout. The colours are crazy pigmented, and some of the sooty dark colours did fall on top of my cheekbones. To make it easier, I placed the colours on my eyes before cleaning up with a makeup remover and applying foundation. For reference, here are the swatches.

As usual, I’m using my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua as foundation, and NARS Orgasm as my blush. I kept Blackout on my lower lash line, Gunmetal on the lids and Ace for more depth. For lips, I used Revlon Matte Balm in Complex which I think makes me look a little corpse like. It is a concealer-ish matte nude, and boy, I made the wrong decision in purchasing that shade. Look at the photos and tell me if I should just throw it in the bin already!

This is the look I came up with.

I decided to put on another matte lip colour, just to see the difference. Here is NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita paired with this look.

I look more alive now, don’t I? LOL! I hope you enjoyed today’s creation! Happy Sunday peeps đŸ™‚
