One of my favorite things about makeup is how we’re not just allowed to let our moods, whims and temporary obsessions influence our color choices and techniques; we’re actually encouraged to. Heck, that’s a big part of the whole shebang, and along those lines, I’ve been feeling blue…
Not blue in a bad way. Just blue.
I don’t really know why or what triggered it, but for some reason I’ve been liking blue even more than usual, especially blue eyeshadows, which is why I had sky high hopes for $18 Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow in Cop a Teal, one of 12 shades from Too Faced Cosmetics.
But maybe I set my expectations a little too high. It being such a pretty peacock blue, and so pigmented, too, I was disappointed to see it crease as much as it does. Not even NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base really helps.
I do like the color, though, so I think I’ll keep trying to find a way to make it work.
Hmm… Any ideas?
