Marsala makeup look with Girlactik Lush eyeshadow

 FOTD featuring the Pantone colour of 2015, with 12 makeup products.

Marsala FOTD, EOTD with 12 makeup products including Girlactick Lush eyeshadow

As a rule, I ignore makeup trends and stick to my comfort zone. But I did love Radiant Orchid, the 2014 Pantone colour of the year for 2014. The 2015 Pantone colour of the year, Marsala, a terracotta red, is another shade I have grown to love, particularly for eyeshadow and nail polish. 
The Girlactik Star Eyeshadow in Lush is the best Marsala eyeshadow in my stash and I cannot give it enough love. I got it in a Lip Factory box and the quality (formula and pigmentation) is as good as any other top eyeshadow brand. It is the centrepiece of the FOTD I've done here.

Check out the Marsala makeup look I did with 12 products including Girlactik Lush eyeshadow:


The look

Eyes

I didn't want to take away from that Girlactik eyeshadow so I opted for basic black eyeliner on the upper lid alone, and minimal mascara. I added Girlactik Lush with a wet brush on the lower lashline. I LOVE that eyeshadow. It is not a blah-neutral but isn't too garish either.

      The Miguhara B.P. Cream (primer) oxidises badly, as I found out from the photographs.

      Lips

      Sephora Pantone Color of the Year Marsala Layering Lip Collection in Dusty Cedar
      12. Sephora Pantone Color of the Year Marsala Layering Lip Collection in Dusty Cedar.
      The Sephora Pantone Universe Color of the Year Marsala Layering Lip Collection is a neutral crayon set with only one Marsala shade, and is my new favourite set for the lips, though staying power is dismal. Full review coming up shortly with all the deets.
      This is not a Marsala lippie as such, and has been built up over Too Faced Lip Insurance, and is very sheer, but I love this shade.
      Marsala is definitely a shade I will be sporting frequently on my eyes and nails at least.

      15. I SO badly want that palette - it's sold out in Sephora Dubai, much to my chagrin. I managed to get the lip collection and the eyeliner, though.

      16. I want the Sephora Marsala palette so badly, it's like having a constant tummy ache but it is sold out in Sephora Dubai :( The lip set is great, though! Lots of "our" colours.
