I did this look some weeks ago but the upcoming surgery has wreaked havoc on my brain so that I completely forgot to blog about this! Sorry.

I bought some samples from Evil Shades and I have to say that I'm very happy with the products AND the customer service. If you're an international customer, you have to e-mail about your order to get an exact price on your order. But that's not a hassle and Andrea is very quick to respond. Also, she makes her own shadows which gives her a big plus as well as some virtual chocolate chip cookies.

Mysteria (a soft lavender shade) and Nymphette (electric blue) are both shadows that are prismatic, almost holographic. So I decided to keep it very simple and work with these two shades.



Purely Cosmetics Skin Smoothing foundation
Evil Shades blush in Pin Up


Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Evil Shades eyeshadow in Mysteria (all over eyelid, lower lashline)
Evil Shades eyeshadow in Nymphette (over Blacktrack)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (upper lashline)
Lumene black kohl (lower lashline, smudged)
Lumene Blueberry Curl waterproof mascara in Rich Black


MAC lipglass in Prrrrr

Nymphette is such a vibrant colour that it looks bright blue even on black. This is a really good sign. Some colours just loose their thing with black. I also used Nymphette on the outer corners of my eyes in an attempt to create the famous and fabulous 'cat eye look'. You'll be the judge.

I did mention that the colours are close to holographic? This photo shows some of the amazing glitz the shadows have. Mysteria just twinkles like crazy. Of course, the effect is more visible when used over Pixie Epoxy (of course).

Pin Up blush surprised me the most. It looks a bit dull in the sample baggie but on the skin it just glows. Don't let my grumpy expression fool you, I'm verry happy with it.

I'm sure I will buy from Evil Shades again. I love the blushes, other favourite was Burlesque which is a peachy sort of shade. Great for pale girls, I tell you.

BTW, I'm not commenting your comments on the giveaway post because I want to make the drawing more easy for me. I deleted one comment from SilhoutteScreams (don't worry, dear, you're in) because I want to keep it in a system I call "one comment, one entry". I suck at maths so this is my way of coping with my numeric disability. Thanks for everyone for your kind thoughts, they are very much appreciated!

The surgery is on Friday and I'm posting you a little something tomorrow. Nothing huge, though. I don't know when I'll be able to post something after that because I don't know how many nights I have to spend at the hospital and how it takes me to feel better. You'll be in my thoughts, though :)

You look amazing! I love these colors as well...and Pinup blush rocks my socks (its currently lost though...I have to clean up my makeup area!!)

Good luck on the surgery!! You're in my thoughts!

Thanks, twin :) Oh no, Pin Up must be found! Cleaning usually helps, though :) I always have something missing, usually misplaced or I've just put it somewhere "safe".

Argh, I'm so nervous! Thanks, any positive vibes are welcome :)

SilhouetteScreams: The samples are affordable. Just e-mail thw owner and she'll calculate the shipping fees for you. Just wanted to let you know about the comment thing so you won't think I was being rude or something :) I'm just hopeless with numbers.
