EOTD - Snakebitten Latte

I'm going to try and do some eye-of-the-day posts, especially since I'm testing out a bunch of new products lately. I hope I can come up with a better lighting solution in the future, but what I've currently figured out isn't awful, so I'm going to go with it for now.

In this look, I am wearing:
L'Oreal Infallible eye shadow in Iced Latte on the lid
Urban Decay Snakebite in the crease
Wet & Wild Brulee to highlight
L'Oreal Hip cream eyeliner in Teal topped with Urban Decay Blackout to line
Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes mascara topped with Wet & Wild Mega Protein mascara

After doing this look, I think I have officially given up on Tarte Lights, Cameras, Lashes mascara. I know a lot of people love it, so I want to as well. I keep trying it, and I still don't like it. I feel like my lashes look really clumpy in this look, and they looked that way before I added the Wet & Wild mascara. 

I don't think these pictures show off the gorgeous sheen/shimmer that Iced Latte has, so here's a swatch picture with it that shows it off a little better: 

All of these are the L'Oreal Infallible shadows. From left to right: Endless Pearl, Iced Latte, and Amber Rush.

Since I haven't worn it yet, how would you wear Amber Rush? What would you pair with it? 


  1. Very nice! You should do a Naked 1 vs. 2 comparison!

    I would probably wear Amber Rush with some sort of matte warm toned brown or even a red/burgundy. I'd do the crease first and then add Amber Rush slightly into the crease but more on the lid, of course.

    I wanted to give Endless Pearl a try, so I am a bit bummed to read it's a bit patchy. It looks to be the exact color of my skin :-/

  2. I think Amber Rush would work with just about any color! All three of those colors look great! I'd be interested in a Naked vs. Naked2 comparison also!

  3. Thanks for the Amber Rush suggestions Cait!

    I'll try and get a Naked 1 vs. Naked 2 post up sometime this week. :-)

  4. Amber Rush is absolutely beautiful in your swatches! I'd wear it on the lid with either a deeper golden brown in the crease, or a burgundy shade in the crease.

    I've only tried the mini size of Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes, but I wasn't terribly excited by it. It was a bit meh and natural on its own, so I used it in combination with Benefit Bad Gal which was horrible and wet and smudgey on me.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion!

      It always makes me feel a bit better about disliking products that are normally raved about when I know other people feel the same way. Sorry Bad Gal didn't work for you either. I had a mini of Bad Gal once that worked well for me, but I (thankfully) rarely have problems with smudging. What is your favorite mascara?
