FOTD with Addiction Crow, Blue Moon and Soap & Glory Show Good Face

Addiction Crow is a lovely sooty black that is loved by both Mag and Blogdorf Goodman. The shade is very aptly named, with a blackened bluish sheen.

The pic above was taken under normal indoor lighting while the pic below was taken under a spotlight that showed up the shimmers more vividly. When applied, it is actually not that shimmery.

For this look, I paired it with Addiction Blue Moon in the crease and outer half of the lower lashline, Horizon over the browbone area and Silent Scream along the lower lashline. Applied over Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Crow take just a few brush strokes to achieve an intensely pigmented finish that lasts all day without any creasing, although there was a tiny bit of smudging at the outer corner.

I finished by applying MAC Designer Purple Pearlglide Eyeliner along the upper lashline and Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes mascara.

The other products used include: Armani Sheer Blush in Tourmaline Pink, Soap & Glory Show Good Face in A Good Light, Kick Ass Concealer in Light, K-Palette Lasting 2Way Eyebrow, Dior Addict Ultra Gloss #732 Orange Boléro and Paul & Joe Pressed Powder 03.

Pink Tourmaline is extremely pale and sheer, with a very refined shimmer that makes it more suitable as a highlighter than a blush. It adds just the barest hint of colour to my cheeks. The delicate ballet pink hue was just too mesmerisingly pretty in the compact to pass up.

Show Good Face is described as a 2-in-1 skin energising foundation & primer. I found this quite average. It's alright for evening out the complexion but it does not cover red spots well. The concealer works somewhat better but I find the texture slightly dry. I use the peach shade on the left for under the eyes and the beige shade for covering up spots like those on my cheek.

I like this look on you! It's a subtle smoky eye that's still suitable for daytime IMO.

I liked this look! I kept thinking Crow is greenish (based on product color on the website). Oh, I am so wrong. Aw... a very beautiful blackish-grey shade. :)

I love Addiction but it is kinda hard to get them unless someone is travelling to Japan.

I love your EOTD! The colors that you used are so pretty! I'm totally regretting not picking up more Addiction shadows while I was there. It was just so difficult to shop and decide when there was a time limit.
