EOTD: Coffret D'or TD Eyes 04 Grey Tones

Thanks for the various EOTD photo tips from everyone who commented yesterday! I was pondering over the issue of EOTD photos and hit on the idea of taking the photo from the side, at an angle. I also stood near a window (I had no meeting this morning, so I could take some time to grab a photo with my camera phone, haha). I think it produces a better EOTD photo, even though the eyeshadow colours are still not showing up very well, it is an improvement over yesterday. As a result, I'm happy to show you another EOTD, as requested, using Coffret Dor's Winter 08 TD Eyes 04 Grey Tones eyeshadow palette and Star Dazzling Liner DB03 from my mini Coffret Dor haul. Please ignore my crazy eyebrow, dark circles and scary line under the eye (haha I tried to photo edit it but it didn't work well). Image002copy Image010copy I applied it mostly like the Coffret D'or tutorial in this link, without the irridescent pearl colour, D. (A note: I wear glasses and work in a very conservative environment, so I tend to keep my eye makeup simple. I also don't line my bottom lash with eyeliner because I find that accentuates the dark circles.) Fuz asked about blue Star Dazzling Liner DB03 liquid eyeliner, so here's a photo of it, alone, before the eyeshadow application. Image003copy The eye liner goes on smoothly but requires heavier application, it's probably better to put this liner after all eyeshadow application, because it flaked off as I was blending my eyeshadow. It also keeps flaking off as the day goes by. Irritating! I'm quite keen to buy more Coffret D'or if the colours and texture of the new Spring 09 SA Eyes are as good as TD range. This palette I have is very smooth indeed. I'm also looking forward to the new Shine Drape Rouge lipsticks. I've been using my Full Styling Rouge Glow everyday this week! What I think I really need is a heated eyelash curler but I've not seen any around here, maybe I'm not looking at the right places. I hate that my lashes are not curling up properly. © Copyright.

Nice, the colors are clear now! :D Gotta LOVE TD eyes, and I can assure you the texture of SA eyes is just as nice!! :] Though you only get 3 powder shadows and one of them is a cream.

The glitter liner is really pretty! Yea, glitter liners usually only work over e/s.
