EOTD: Maybelline Color Explosion Quint "Forest Fury" and Revlon Grow Luscious Lash Liner "Emerald"


Today's EOTD is a bright pop of color.  I needed something to brighten things up - the weather has been hot and humid, I haven't really wanted to wear makeup, so this was my attempt to get out of a makeup slump. 

For the look I used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion "Greed"
Maybelline Forest Fury right triangle - inner corner
Maybelline Forest Fury middle "v"  - outer corner, crease
Maybelline Forest Fury left triangle - lower lash line
Maybelline Forest Fury lower triangle - highlight
Maybelline Luminizer - all over shadow
Revlon Grow Luscious Lash Liner "Emerald" - eyeliner
Maybelline The Falsies Flared Mascara "black"  



Again, like the Color Explosion Quint in Caffeine Rush, this quint is full of pigmentation and versatile colors.  With Forest Fury, you get a bit of warm and cooler greens to work with.  I find that the bright lime green I wore on the lash line is a bit out of sync with the rest of the pallet, but it is a really pretty color in it's own right, so I won't hold that against it.  These colors do have a bit of shimmer to them, but nothing over the top - you really add the *pop* of shimmer and sparkle with the luminizer, so this is definitely multifunctional: if you want a more subdued look, don't add the luminizer; if you want it to shimmer and shine, go for it!  The shadows wore all day, without creasing.  I found them easy to blend together, and again the Luminizer didn't smear or smudge the shadows when applied. 

I need to try and add this luminizer on top of a liner with a liner brush and see if I can turn my basic black liner into something with some sparkle.  Have you tried this?  Did it work?
