FOTD: Olives & Pears

I wore this look recently to a birthday dinner. The pear-like qualities of ColourPop’s Sleigh is a little subtle—it’s described as an “icy sage”—but that’s OK. It lets me wear a pink as bright as Tom Ford’s Flamingo, which is a shade that I’m still not sure why I even bought. Here are swatches of the eyeshadows I used:

Base/Face

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint (Medium), Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (Ethereal Light), Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush (Mood Exposure)

Lips

Tom Ford Flamingo: I don’t know, you guys. I just can’t seem to really get into this lip color. I mean, it doesn’t look horrible or too garish, but I think that my aversion to purples and oranges switched on over to bright, medium pinks. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS. And I hate that I bought this lipstick in this color, haha. Thoughts?!

Eyes

K-Palette Real Lasting 2Way Eyebrow Marker (G101, powder only)*, Nature Republic Eye Primer, ColourPop Super Shock Shadow (Sleigh), MAKE Matte Eyeshadow (Khaki)*, Rouge Bunny Rouge Abyssinian Catbird, K-Palette Rose-Scented Liquid Liner*, ILIA Mascara (Shadow of a Doubt)

Sleigh is actually part of a limited edition holiday collection of 6, which is back up on ColourPop.com.

And that’s it! My green eyeshadow phase isn’t over yet, and I’ve got a lot of plans to wear it this Spring. Funny how that worked out. What are you into at the moment? 🙂

    I dunno, if this post had said “I love this colour, it makes me feel like the harbinger of spring, squee”, I would have been less surprised! I think it’s an awesome pink and you’re wearing it well.

  2. I love the lip! Sometimes it’s more that you’re not used to wearing a certain colour rather than it not suiting you. I think it look beautiful on you.

  3. Flamingo is super nice as a summer lip 🙂 Love your skin, too – parang baby’s skin gurl!

    • LOOOL, thanks gurl! Oo nga, pang-sammer pero di kasi ako mahilig sa sammer! Baka kaya ayaw ko to HAHA.
