LOTD: Coffret D'or C-curve Eyes #07 (limited edition)

This is the look I had for work today! Of course, I didn't wear the false lashes to work, but I just soooo felt like wearing them that I put a pair on after work to take these photographs. I am so depraved of wearing false lashes! But then, I think I chose the wrong design because the lashes kind of covered the nice plum color of the eyeshadow when I opened my eyes...

Ok pictures first!

Arghhh... sorry my eye looks so red and tired... oh but then, I am really tired =) Anyway, to wear this pair of falsies, I should wear lower lashes as well, so as to balance out the long upper lashes.

I had to edit the background of the photos because my house is really messy at the moment. Didn't do a very good job of it though. My apologies!

This is the main eye palette I used:

Coffret D'or C-curve Eyes #07 (limited edition)

From left to right, top to bottom: shimmery black (liner color), shimmery light pink (c-curve color), sparkly lavender, shimmery plum

The c-curve color's texture is semi-cream. When you touch it, it is slightly wet; but when you apply it, it becomes power, therefore it gives you longer wear! The sparkly lavender (more cool then warm) applies powdery and prone to fall outs (as like all sparkly shades), so I recommend using a good primer for all the C-curve palettes. The shimmery plum (reddish tone) is more silky in texture, very smooth and easy to apply.

Comes in a very slim casing

I didn't attempt anything special with this palette. After applying my Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion, I applied the sparkly lavender to my inner crease, all the way to the middle lid. Then, I blended the plum from middle lid to outer lid. After that, I used a small blending brush and applied the black liner color to the outer corner of my eye lid in circular motions. The method I used is exactly the same as how I did it in my Barbie Doll Look tutorial (the way I applied the grey shimmery shadow). Then I lined my lower lash line with the plum, then black, then added the lavender to the inner corners. Last, I applied the c-curve color as highlight to my brow bow area and area under my eyes (putting the color there will instantly brighten up your eyes, as well as cover any dark circles (a little ^^).

I love this look. I find the colors slightly similar to my Purple Jewel Smokey Eyes tutorial, only less dramatic and easier to wear!

Products used:

1) Coffret D'or C-curve Eyes #07
2) Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion
3) Ardell lashes 120 Demi Black

Majolica Marjoca PK333

Maybelline Water Shine Collagen Gloss P31

As mentioned in my previous post, I purchased the Coffret D'or C-curve Eyes #06 as well.

Left to right, top to bottom: Shimmery bronzy dark brown (liner color), shimmery light lemon (c-curve color - you can't really see its lemon, as I think it really looks like regular shimmery highlight color when you apply it), sparkly silvery lemon (I am not sure if lemon is the right word... maybe its champagne??), shimmery taupe brown (almost metallic)

Are you going to get any of these palettes? =)

this is a gorgeous look :D! I really like it, you look lovely. The palette you used for your LOTD is my favorite I think ^^;; The other one is a bit muted for my taste ~_~

ashura said...

Hi Nic Nic,
I like Coffret D'or a lot for their shimmery shadows hehe =) I guess your prefer metallic and matte?

Hi Elle,
The other palette is more bronze, so I guess yah its a bit muted... but still gorgeous =D but I agree #07 is more unique and a more outstanding palette!
