Here are my two well-loved shades, 03 Black Tulip and 06 True Teal, in action. Usual variable lighting disclaimers apply -- the weather has been seriously mad here, and I avoid flash because it distorts things too badly.
1. True Teal Split WingChanel Abstraction Illusion D'Ombre over the lid and lower lashline, Pixi True Teal to line upper lashline and Tarina Tarantino Amethyst Android Hyperliner to half-mirror it below.
|Lips: Fresh Sugar Rosé|
2. True(r) Teal Look With Black Tulip To Boot
True Teal blended over the centre of the lid, Black Tulip wing, and the turquoise from Shu Uemura Smoky Velvet (Euro/Asia version) as inner lid highlight.
|Lips: Chanel Confidence Extrait de Gloss | Cheeks: Ladurée Cream Cheek Base 102|
Base: Vapour stick 90 mixed with Suki lavender CC cream
3. Black Tulip Smudgy Half-Cut Crease
Pretty self explanatory: Black Tulip winged out then feathered back in, to another Chanel Abstraction Illusion D'Ombre base.
More eyespam, because I was going to capture the sparkles in Black Tulip that coordinated so nicely with the peachy coppery corally Abstraction:
|okay, fine, flash pic. I hope you can see it now.|
|Lips: Korres Natural Purple cherry oil gloss, blotted down | Cheeks: Ladurée Cream Cheek Base 102|
Constants: Shu Uemura H9 brow pencil Seal Brown, GOSH white eye kohl on lower waterline, Burberry Sheer Concealer 01 under eyes, Mehron LT-1 to spot conceal, Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Clouds as highlighter.
Actually, it took this post for me to realise that I've been on a bit of a wing kick of late. Oops. At least it shows how beautifully these Pixi pencils work for precision/boldness in addition to (as their creaminess suggests) smudgy cream-eyeshadow-ness or hazy kohliness. Maybe I'll post some more varied shapes using these babies in future. With less 'ness'.:P
Even on my extremely dry lids, I get about a half a minute to work with these before they set, which is enough for pretty much any shape or placement; once set, they stay pristine without fading, flaking/shedding shimmer, smudging, or losing precision through an entire day and evening beyond (the last look I wore from 8am to midnight). I can't recommend them highly enough.
