Lucky Dip 2!

Time for instalment number two of my Lucky Dip experiments – four indie shadows, one glitter and one pencil liner plucked at random, and then hopefully some magic/epic fail occurs.

Clockwise from top left we have: Silk Naturals Heat, Darling Girl The Final Gift, BeautyUk Glitter (no name/number), Darling Girl Death & Redemption, Sugarpill Lumi, Rimmel Soft Kohl pencil in “Lovely Lilac.”

Oh, balls. I didn’t like this one so much! Two FIERY metallics and a bunch of icy, cool colours…. ugh.

First I patted “Death & Redemption” all over the lid, trying to knock out the pink sparks as I thought it’d bee too much with all the other colours going on. I then went in with “Lovely Lilac” on the outer corners of my lashlines. Next, I took Lumi and used that to highlight my browbone and crease, taking more of “Death & Redemption” into my crease afterward. I then took “The Final Gift” on a damp brush and used this to line both outer halves of my lashlines, joining them up to create a wing. With a mixing medium I then used “Heat” close to my lashes on both lashlines. Finally, I dabbed the BeautyUk glitter in the centre of my lid.

Oooh, I’m not sure about this one. “Lumi” and “Death & Redemption” look great together and I liked the glitter in the centre of the lid, but there’s no way I’d normally put the gold/coppers with the lilacs and I think “Heat” and “The Final Gift” were much too similar. Ah well, can’t win ‘em all!


  1. Hiiiya!! You finally got lumi, i just hope you like it in another combo!!, i like to use it on dark pencils and such!! But maybe you should match you new pigments together with some other shadows to really enjoy them fully??/Azure

    1. I've had Lumi for a while now - couldn't live without it!

  2. On the plus side, this combo makes your eye's look very, very blue.

  3. The warm colors are a bit mis-matchy with the cool, but I still think this is a fun experiment! Can't wait to see what you come up with next.
