Electro Eye – Color Trial

I picked up MAC Electro Sky (McQueen LE collection, 2007) paint pot at the Cosmetics Company Store last weekend. It’s a medium-tone periwinkle cream color: not the type of shade I usually seek out. But it was so lovely — and I am so taken with the non-frost paint pots’ wonderful performance as bases — that I had to snatch it up.

I finally got around to trying it out last night. I used a sheer wash of blue-green duotone powder eyeshadow over the paint pot, which created a fantastic iridescence that — alas! — doesn’t really show up on camera. Even so, I’m pleased with the result; I may wear this look for some fun occasion in the future.

    1. Yesterday I noticed a NYX eyeshadow called Lanikai (Lanakai? I don’t recall) that’s just about the same color as this paint pot. The PP is matte, and Lanikai is a slightly glittery frost. You could definitely use Lanikai and mixing medium to replace the PP.
