This past Christmas season, I got a chance to try the Zuzu Luxe Holiday Palette from Gabriel Cosmetics (review and holiday look here). It’s such a great glam face and eye palette in a beautiful compact.
I also like the regular Gabriel Cosmetics line, and so far, I’ve tried the Liquid Foundation (reviewed here) and lipstick (reviewed here). So I was eager to try the eye makeup. I was sent the Smokey Matte Grey Eyeshadow Trio, shades that are absolutely perfect for me.
The shades don’t seem to have names, but they appear to be ivory, charcoal and mushroom.
I must mention how much I like the portability of the packaging for this little trio. It’s the perfect size to pop into my purse for travel or just for whenever. So handy!
Although it’s called a Smokey eye trio, I kinda did my own thing. A smokey eye is just too much eye makeup for me to wear. I applied the ivory shade under my brow and in the inner corner, the charcoal in the crease and V, and the mushroom in the center of my eyelid. The shadows were nicely pigmented – especially the mushroom and charcoal, and they all blended very easily. There was no fallout. I applied them more than 6 hours ago over Urban Decay Anti-aging Eye Primer, and the shades are still going strong.
In addition to enhancing my blue eye color, these shades are perfect for evening (a smokey eye for those of you who can wear it) as well as for wearing to work. This matte grey palette would look great with a suit! Even with my mostly stay-at-home lifestyle these days, I know I’ll get a lot of use from this trio that appear to be created with me in mind. 🙂
Here’s the look I created with the Gabriel Eyeshadow Trio:
