      This looks so amazing!! I was actually debating the other night to just mess around with my makeup and try different shapes, specifically this one! One solid color on the lid and then another surrounding it. The gold eyeliner on top really sells it!

      • Phyrra

        Yeah Koi is REALLY pretty! I definitely am happy with how it turned out :)

      A beautiful combo and a perfect winter look!

      I’m printing these pictures out and carrying them with me! So gorgeous!!! (Too creepy? Ok, I get it…)

      Just kidding about taking them with me. I just like this eye look SO MUCH!!! DEF one of my top 5 faves. (And Lakers colors again!!)

      The blush looks amazingly natural and the lips are perfect for this look.

      • Phyrra

        Aww thank you Jean! I think I should have blended the upper crease a tad more, but I love how it looks.

    • Eclectic_eels

      This looks exceptional. The gold makes the purple pop(like green vs red opp the color wheel). It looks burnished yet cool at the same time,if u know what I mean.

      I love the peachy gold lipstick- it’s phenomenal with this look.

      The blusher is a bit shimmery for my liking-but it always looks SO gd on ya*jealous* LOL

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I feel like it’s a really good blush shade on me.

        Thank you Gio :)

      The Koi looks similar to Avon’s gel liner in Bronze (but maybe just a bit more gold?). And one of the colors shows like the Avon yellow gold (?) from the 24k quad. Maybe the way you blended Polar Bear or Vellum with Half Baked?

      • Phyrra

        Bronze is more Bronze/brown. Koi is very much a brighter gold shade.

        I think Polar Bear, blended on top of Half-Baked and with Vellum looks similar to the Yellow Gold, though not exact :)

      Oh my gosh, I freakin’ love this. I think the different textures make it especially interesting to look at. Poison Plum and Half Baked look so gorgeous together, I might have to try this combo ^^

      • Phyrra

        Thank you so much Heather! I loooove how this turned out :)

      OMG I love the matte texture of the lid with the sheen of the crease. And the matching liner! <3

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I just loved how this turned out.
