I have had this for a few months but just haven't really used it too much! I've decided to stop buying any more makeup for a while, since I have more than one person really needs! I am not calling it project 10 pan or anything like that. If I see something that I'd really like to try for a good deal, I don't want to make myself feel bad for giving in!! Know what I mean? I pulled this out on this cold March morning wanting to do a warm look. This color is gorgeous! Here's the swatch (no primer this time):

It is sooo pretty! Very shimmery and creamy in texture. It blends on your lid perfectly! After letting it set on my lids for a little while, I patted on some of my favorite Cover Girl single shadows and they really held on to this! Once this stuff has set on your lids, you are good to go or you can put on shadow over it like me. I think this summer I will try wearing this alone with no powder of any kind on it. It's got such a nice shimmer, but it's not over the top on the lid. These aren't available on AVON's webpage right now, but they do have their non-shimmery versions available. They are even on sale for $3.99! Did I mention these are also waterproof? Who wouldn't love that---perfect for summer time!!

Here's the look I did today using this as a base:
Here's what I used for this whole eye look:
Cover Girl single shadows in Brown Smolder (matte) & Mink (shimmer)
AVON Big Color Dazzler in Mocha Mauve
AVON Glimmer Sticks Eye Liner in Cosmic Brown
AVON SpectraLash Mascara  in Black

Ohh Mocha Mauve does look gorgeous! Your EOTD is super pretty and flattering too. :) Don't wear eyeshadow myself (don't know where to begin haha) but I love neutrals.

Cute! I love neutral looks, but I always try to mix it up
