All Wrapped Up is one of my favorites; it is a gorgeous collection of six shadows in an adorable box, available for $34 from BE and Sephora this season.
Beans is one of my rescue cats who, unbeknownst to me, loves makeup. Especially this kit.
Normally, he hangs out with me when I write (along with another cat and three dogs) and watches me take photos.
(His tail hits the touch screen and he has been known to send emails. Not kidding.)
Here are the colors:
Here is a look at them swatched straight and foiled:
Here is a look at Mistletoe, Gift, Bauble and Tinsel on Beans.
I don't think they are his colors. I think he'd like the High Shine colors - Frost!- or the Rocker Kit with his coloring. He wouldn't let me swatch myself until I swatched him.
These colors are so versatile, you can wear them a million ways. Here are a few of my favorites:
Garland all over with Gift foiled in the crease and lightly dry lined under your eye.
Gift lightly applied (or lightly foiled!) so it barely glistens over the inside half of your lid with either Bauble, Tinsel or Mistletoe in the outer half of the lid.
One of my favorite new tricks is to take any of the above combinations and use Present as the crease color, and take it slightly higher above the crease, but not quite to the brow bone.
(I am loving that look with Bauble, especially.) Any pinky coral that isn't sparkly will do the trick, if you want to just try it.
I didn't think I could carry it off, I'm pink shadow-shy in general, but I really liked it!
Today, I wore Garland below the arch, Bauble on the inner half of my lid, Tinsel on the outer half and Present in the crease. Then I mixed Ink and Plum BE Big and Bright Liners over and under the eye. It was subtle, but I love the overall effect!
This was sent to me for review. Other than this particular swatching with Beanford G. Loxy Cat (which was washed off immediately, for you concerned readers), BE doesn't test on animals.
