FOTD: Gold Stroke & Golden Lemon Pigments


I received the jars yesterday, however it's already all gone! I can't believe I had so many orders lined up and so I ordered more! So Jennifer, Erica and Susie, your orders will be shipped out tomorrow.
***For you ladies interested in purchasing some pigment samples, PLEASE email me (email addy is above) with your first and last name, the colors you want, and your address. I have to take private orders to gauge how many jars I will need, as well as if I need to re-stock on pigments. Again, the colors I have are: Teal, Violet, Golden Lemon, Emerald Green, Your Ladyship, Gold Stroke, Cool Pink, Pinked Mauve, Fuchsia, Vanilla, Sweet Sienna. It's on a first come, first serve basis, once I get them all in, I can then see what is still available. "Sweet Sienna" is a limited edition item and will not be offered for sampling after a certain point. At this time I do not plan on re-purchasing it for sampling. Thanks!

I wanted to try a soft natural everyday look just using the pigments, and I just bought "Gold Stroke" and never had a chance to use it, so I paired it with the "Golden Lemon" Pigment and it actually came out really nice (in person anyway), so these pictures don't even do it justice. My co-workers liked it too, so it's definitely going into my "favorite-look" book.

What I used:


- MAC Beauty Powder in "Drizzlegold" under my Silk Naturals foundation (Warm Gold)
- MAC Sculpting Powder to contour sides of nose


- Physician's Formula Concealer Duo
- MAC Concealer (NC30)
- MAC Pigment in "Golden Lemon" (all over the lid and applied wet)
- MAC Pigment in "Gold Stroke" (outer half of lid, outer-V and contour)
- Prestige Liquid Eyeliner (Bronze Gold)


- Everyday Minerals "Waffle Cone" Blush
- MAC MSF in "Goldspill"


- Rosebud's Strawberry Lip Balm
- Botanics Lipgloss in "Star Anise"

i am the same shade as you. how many parts of the Silk Naturals white foundation and gold foundation do you use to find the right shade? do you know what form of payment they accept? i send them an email but they haven't response yet.

Vanessa, I love this on you. I have an irrational fear of the MAC piggies but I think I want to try this.

Your lashes look really great! What mascara did you use?

Vanessa said...

Hey Karen! Sorry I forgot to mention it, I used L'Oreal XXL Curl Power Mascara, I am starting to like it, even though I still love the Telescopic mascara. What's your favorite mascara?

I love the natural look! So pretty and simple! Btw, do you have to curl your lashes or are they naturally like that?
