Dame Edna Wisterio Eye Trio

Hi Bellas,

Dame Edna showed up in MAC stores about 2 weeks ago. Initially, I wasn't uber excited about the collection, but I just had to have something with the packaging (MAC collector over here!). I ended up only picking two items (pro discount does not apply). I picked the Wisteria Trio because the purple trio had Climate Blue in it (which I have). Next, I picked up the Highlighting Powder in What a Dame! because after swatching it, I found that underneath all the shimmery stuff, the matte powder has a nice silky texture. I've been looking for a Matte highlighting powder for myself anyways.

Check out the sparkly purple boxes!

Yes these are stickers...the compact and trio seem to have a little bit of a plastic coating on top though...hopefully it will hold!

Check out my video tutorial for the Wisteria Trio!

Makeup shots with my new camera! Yay! Finally I can get close ups. Don't they look much more clear?

Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise specified):

-MUFE HD foundation 128 (this shade works for me in the winter)
-msf natural in med dark
-Bobbi Brown peony blush
-format blush as contour
-what-a-dame highlight powder

-pure white chromaline
-wisteria eye trio: knight devine, wisteria, fineshine
-rapidblack penultimate eyeliner
-smolder eye kohl
-smashbox iconic mascara
-#10 lashes

-lychee luxe lipglass

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

I always feel like I have to get at least one makeup item from every collection too just to have a complete collection. I've been bad at keeping up with all the collections though but better for my wallet.

LadyJane said...

You make EVERYTHING look great Ren! I dunno if I'm gonna get anything for the collection (I'm not too fond of the packaging) but I saw the purple palette yesterday and the MUA was wearing it and it looked so pretty on her cause it was matte and the right shades of purple - so I MIGHT pick that up haha.

Somehow my comment got removed :-( But I'll rewrite it for ya!

I love this look you really, really rocked it. The blue looks super hot. I remember when you made me up we had a chat about the Dame Edna collection and you mentioned that you weren't looking forward to it. I saw it at the MAC store two days ago and I wasn't impressed either.

Of course I just changed my mind ;-)

I didn''t get a chance to comment on the Kim Kardashian post, but it looks AMAZING. Probably one of my favorite looks!

Happy New Year girl xxx

I only got 2 things from dame edna as well, wisteria trio and spectacle highlighting powder. I haven't even used either yet. Hmm. I'll definitely try this look though. Btw, the quality of the pics is awesome. I'm in need of a new can too, which one do you have?

Yas said...
