Hi everyone! I ordered just two items from the MAC Cinderella collection: the Iridescent Powder Coupe d'Chic, and after some deliberation I also picked up the Stroke of Midnight eye palette because even though all but one of the shades are permanent colors, I only own Satin Taupe so I thought it would be a nice way to try some of MAC's neutrals that were not in my existing collection.
Today I'll be sharing an eye look I did over the weekend using shades from this palette along with a bit of Pretty It Up pigment (also included in this collection but sold out before I could get hold of it--I have a mini version from a 2014 holiday set), and the very glamorous ESQIDO mink lashes.*

|Coupe D'Chic Iridescent Powder|
As you may have already discovered, Coup D'Chic Iridescent Powder is a bit of a glitter bomb, but I think it is perfectly appropriate for a Cinderella collection, and I really like it! Although it does have some color to it, it is too pale to work on me as a blush color, but it makes a lovely blush topper/highlighting shade.

My own lashes are short and straight, so false lashes really helped to transform this look from everyday neutrals into something more glamorous!
I find frosty colors hard to pull off sometimes, especially as I am getting older, but I like the contrast of the taupe-bronze pigment with the frosty Phloof and icy-silver liner on the bottom lash line. Omega makes a great warm-toned crease shade and Stroke of Midnight works nicely as a defining shade. It is intense enough to be used as a liner on its own, which is handy if you are traveling with this palette and don't want to bring along a separate eye liner.
