FOTD: LORAC Croc Palette

Did I mention that I won a free LORAC Croc Palette from Total Beauty? No? Well, it arrived yesterday, and of course I decided to try it out today.

Forgive the photo - it was taken with Photo Booth while sitting at my desk at work.

Here is what I used for this look:

1.Laura Geller Spackle: still one of my favorite primers; applied evenly over entire face
2.Laura Geller Caulk Pencil: an excellent concealer. Used on problem spots and under my eyes.
3.NARS Oil Free Foundation: applied with foundation brush evenly.
4. MAC Studio Fix Powder: applied with a big brush.
5. Next comes the Croc Palette: the blush is called Soul and is described as a burnished rose. I applied this lightly to the apples of my cheeks.
6. Then I moved on to my standby,Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I use this every day. It really does a fantastic job keeping my eyeshadow on my kind of oily eyelids.
7. Back to the Croc Palette: I brushed the lightest color, Moonstone, all over the lid as a highlight.
8. On the lower eyelid, I used Garnet, which is a nice bronze color. I covered the lower eyelid completely, then moved on to the crease:
9. Using Suede, which is a chocolate in the outer crease and along the lashline.
10. Then I lined my eyes with Rimmel Liquid Eye Liner in copper brown. I love this liquid eyeliner - it manages to be shimmery without being obnoxious, and the stiff brush makes it easy to apply.
11. Then I tried a new mascara (I've got a few reviews in the works for you!),Lorac - Lotsa Lash Mascara. I have only good things to say about this mascara so far, but it was my first day using it.
12. Finally, on the lips, another LORAC product,LORAC Co-Stars in French Kiss. A little darker than I normally use these days, but the lasting power was pretty darn good.

If you're looking for a good solid neutral palette, I would definitely recommend the LORAC palette. The shadows were long wearing, and nicely pigmented. I'm pleased with it, and will certainly be using it often.
