Liberté blush, Buenos Aires lip pencil, T. McEvoy lip pencil Bare, Calabria eye pencil, and Ramatuelle trio
Buenos Aires is one of those light, warm nude-beige tones that's perfect to accompany stronger or more colorful eye looks. Velvet Gloss pencils have a great, shiny finish but last longer than most conventional lip glosses.
I did a simple eye look using Calabria shadow pencil as a liner, and then added some of the silver from the Ramatuelle trio on top of it and in the inner corner. When I was finished I realized I probably should have used the trio alone so you could have gotten a better sense of how it looks all on its own. Here you can see that the purple tone from Calabria is the dominant color.
The Ramatuelle trio has a very nice texture and is well pigmented. One caveat: the silver shade can be frosty--at first I didn't realize just how pigmented it is and so I kind of overdid it! I was worried the peachy shade might be too orange, and it is warm, but it's also soft and subtle, and surprisingly neutral and easy to wear. It works well as a crease shade. To be honest, I'm not really sure what else to do with it!
(Sorry about the bad lighting!)
Overall, Ramatuelle is a lovely, versatile palette that will coordinate well with most any liner, blush or lip color.
