Blackberry.

I recently bought MAC's Blackberry Eye Shadow in a blog sale and thought I'd have a play around with it this evening (because I have no life...).

MAC Blackberry Eyeshadow

MAC describe it as a muted burgundy-plum brown and it's a matte finish; right up my street. I love burgundy eye shadow - it sits right next to Sketch and on top of Beauty Marked in my palette.

Here's what I came up with (Excuse the photography, it's tricky to take a picture of your eye!):

015MACBLACKBERRY/ALLTHATGLITTERS/BRULE

018MACBLACKBERRY/ALLTHATGLITTERS/BRULE

011MACBLACKBERRY/ALLTHATGLITTERS/BRULE

MACBLACKBERRY/ALLTHATGLITTERS/BRULE
Clockwise from top: Blackberry, Brule, All That Glitters

I used Brule all over the lid, then popped Blackberry into the crease and blended it out, then added a little bit of All That Glitters onto the centre of my lid.

On my other eye I decided to try a different look, a more night timey one:

MAC BLACKBERRY/SKETCH/BEAUTYMARKED

023MAC BLACKBERRY/SKETCH/BEAUTYMARKED

009MAC BLACKBERRY/SKETCH/BEAUTYMARKED

024MAC BLACKBERRY/SKETCH/BEAUTYMARKED
Clockwise from Left: Blackberry, Sketch, Beauty Marked

I used Blackberry all over the lid, Sketch in the crease and then Beauty Marked along the lower lash line and a little bit in the outer v to deepen it up.

What do we think?
