the mud cares palette - review

I was very lucky in December to win this eye palette called the Mud Cares Palette from Make-Up Designory on twitter. I was excited not only by the very wearable colors in the palette, but also that 100% of the proceeds go towards building a safe and sustainable home for children in Africa that have been orphaned by AIDS.  The Palette contains four shadows which I used to create the look below.

What I found to be a really nice surprise in regard to this palette is that the colors are far more pigmented than I would have thought just by looking at the picture on the MUD website.

For this look:

I first filled in my brows with Spanish Gold. Then I used Cashmere along my brow bone as a highlighter. I used Dolce Deleche all over lid and up to brow bone as a base. I used Spanish gold in the crease. I then blended all of that and lined eyes using a wet brush and Moss (which is my favorite color in the palette). All of the colors are very pretty, but Moss is my favorite in the palette because it is a gorgeous shade of green with gold flecks weaved into it that doubles as a liner.

I loved that I was able to do the entire eye - brow and liner included - with one palette. I think that this would looks really amazing on a darker skin tone as well.
