I had always loved the look of the Tarina Tarantino eyeshadows. I never tried any, not for any reason I could remember. Recently she revamped the line and put out new eyeshadow palettes. I got my hands on Fantastical, which is good because it really makes the green in my eyes just pop! There are five shadows in each palette and they are greatly co-ordinated. The colors are as follows (from top, going right to left): light shimmery mauve, medium shimmery beige gold, shimmery eggplant, bright shimmery fuchsia, light shimmery champagne. These palettes are available at www.sephora.com and www.tarinatarantino.com for $32.00.
For this look I used the light shimmery mauve color in the crease. Then I took the shimmery eggplant color and drew it along the deepest part of the crease, on the outermost part of the lid and under the eye. The bright shimmery fuchsia color went all over the lid and under the eye to really brighten it up and make the eye pop. Finally I took the shimmery beige gold and used it under the brow. To line my eyes I used Sephora’s liquid liner in 14 Fancy Violet. For mascara, Maybelline’s Great Lash Lots of Lashes. On my cheeks I used Clinique’s Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Peony. My lips were brightened by Inglot’s 117 Lipstick, a light shimmery coral. I love Inglot’s lipsticks. They are very pigmented and have amazing payoff! They are available at www.inglotcosmetics.com and are $12.00.
I am very happy with these shadows, they are soft and creamy. The payoff is amazing. For $32.00 there are five shadows which is comparable to a Dior quint so this is much more affordable and I would say that the quality is just as good. I would highly recommend these if you are in the mood for something new.
