FOTD: For Effect

I used the MAC Paint Pot in ‘For Effect’ from the Holiday Collection to set the base for this look:

FACE
Chanel Perfection Lumiere (Beige-Ambre 64)
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
Illamasqua Blush in Nymph
EYES
MAC Paint Pot in For Effect (lashline to above crease)
Chanel Single Eyeshadow in Magic Night (lids)
Armani Silk Eye Pencil in Black (lashline and waterline)
Armani Eyes to Kill Stretch Mascara
LIPS
Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Stunt

MAC Glitter & Ice (Paint Pots)

So…

My Glitter & Ice stuff came from MAC. Much of the collection was a pass for me. I did order the Paint Pots though, because I feel that’s something that MAC does really well.

As expected, I LOVE For Effect. It’s a dark grey with a deeply imbedded shimmer… I really love the way it looks. Morning Frost turned out to be a bit of a dud. It’s functional, and it’s okay, but the color isn’t much to write about. The surprise was Let’s Skate! I thought it was a flat pink. But it’s not. It’s a multi-shimmer pink base, with both pink and gold sparkles (neither of which you can see in the pictures… BOO!). It’s interesting, and not too juvenile. I really like it.
I also got the Dazzleglass in Glitter & Ice…
…and I’m pretty sure it’s going back.
