EOTD 05.29.11 Lollipop Night Elf

Good News Everyone!  A new EOTD!!!

For this look I was going for something a little different. I'm sure all of you know by now I adore lime green and purple together. I've gotta say It's probably my favorite color combination out there. However, because it's my favorite I do it ALLLLLL the time. LoL. I was getting bored with my same stand-bys and decided to try this out. I think it came out really neat! Because of the duo chrome nature of the shadow I used I think it created depth in my look, but also means this post is a little photo heavy. Hope you enjoy!

Can you see the purdy green? Yay!
This photo captures why Lollipop Kid is my FAVORITE BFTE purple
Blurry to capture sparkle of Lollipop Kid & green sheen from NE palette color
They call me Squinty McGee (Lollipop kids true color looks great in this shot!)
Creasing after a couple hours. Sad.
Staring into your soul.

Silly Me. Smiley you? :D
What I used to create this EOTD:
Nyx Jumbo Pencil- Milk

BFTE - Lollipop Kid- all over lid
E.L.F Studio Single Eyeshadow - Charcoal #81130 - Crease base color
Wet N Wild- Night Elf Palette brown/green duo chrome bottom left side - Crease
BFTE- Crystal- Inner corners & lightly applied over highlight color for a tiny bit of sparkle
BFTE - Butt Naked - Highlight

So I've heard (I don't own the original shadow) that the color from the Night Elf palette I've used is a dupe for Too Faced shadow in Label Whore. So thats neato.  I'm really not sure where I got the creasing from. It could be the ELF shadow, I used as a base or it's possible I didn't wait long enough for my ponds cream to soak in before I started priming. Or maybe it was just a humid day here or something. But it DID crease heavily on both eyes I'm guessing around hour 4 or 5 even though I did prime my lids with TFSI.

I used an eye pencil I got from Ulta (Ulta Automatic Eye Liner, Long lasting/ waterproof in the color Indigo) in my waterline and it was gone before I even left my vanity mirror. UGHHH >.< .  It's even swatching patchy on my hand now too. I wonder whats wrong with it. /sigh.
Hope you guys enjoyed this look. I thought it was cool how I essentially got my green and purple fix without it actually being a full on green/purple look! :D


  1. Love the look Squinty McGee! That brown/green duochrome is awesome! Too bad about the eyeliner, it's so hard to find a good one for the waterline.

  2. ;) Thanks so much VB. Im using the WnW palettes a lot lately. They really look great combined with all my mineral makeup.. which is so surprising to me. I never thought they'd be able to stand up to the quality.. but I've been proven wrong.

    I just got this new liner Milani Liquif'Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in Black ..been using it on my waterline and its not perfect.. but it stays on a couple hours. Longer than anything else I've tried! LoL.
