Look: Golden Goddess


I finally tried the palette I bought last July. It's a 15 color shimmer eye shadow palette which I included in my July Haul. I bought it because I just wanted to have something to play with. I love the colors so much. I bought  this palette for only 100 pesos. Super pigmented and blendable!


A total of 15 colors housed in fairly big pans (bigger than a 5-peso coin). I'm happy with this palette! It has a shimmery overspray which goes off after you swipe off the first layer. The true color of the eye shadow is slightly lighter with what you see in the pan.

 More about my look!

Sorry for the uneven lighting, the other half of my face is exposed to natural lighting hence the slight difference in color. Look at my brows!


I used the teal eye shadow (on the topmost, rightmost pan) for the inner corners. Gold eye shadow on the crease area and brow bone and the black eye shadow on the outer v. I didn't use any primer or base on my eyes. That's how pigmented these shadows are. 



I made the eyeliner extra thick because I want my look to be really dramatic. Okay, I know. I'm always a failure in lining eyes. It almost always ruins the whole look. But I ain't giving up! I should practice, practice, practice!

And for something out of the ordinary, I paired it with golden lips! I used the same gold eye shadow I used on my eyes. Cool, huh? It is my first time to use an eye shadow as a lip color. I've seen other beauty bloggers do this and so I tried. Now, I want to try other colors too!

While I was camwhoring and trying out different effects on my phone, I was awed by the HDR effect (i'm using camera360 app) that's why I'm sharing extra pictures with you!


Golden lips intensified!

What do you think of this look? Would you wear an eye shadow as a lipstick too? I would love to hear your comments!

Have a good night!
God bless!

  4. Beautiful look. I really like your lip color. I've always thought about using eyeshadow pigments as lip color but never got around to it, lol.

  5. Eyeshadow as lip color is my usual take when I do my crazy looks... You can also use a creamy eye pencil for it, but I have more eyeshadows than eyepencils (only black and pink) so I use those instead... I love the golden lips! :)

  10. I have tried using eyeshadow on my lips. Learned it from Theater class back in college. I use a transparent lip balm first and then the eyeshadow para kumapit yung color.

    The look you've created looks really gorgeous. Golden Goddess talaga. Lips pa lang bet na! :)

    1. Oh, thanks for the tip! I applied it directly on my lips. It's a shimmery gold eye shadow that's why I didn't have any issues with the application. Kumapit agad ang color. But not with matte eye shadows! Now I know! That's really helpful :))

      Yeyyy! Thanks so much!
