EOTD - Over The Rainbow

Actually, this is the look I wanted to do for the Revlon "Bright & bold eyes" challenge.
I remember buying this vivid blue color called Rainbow many years ago, and I remember this particular spring collection "Wizard of Oz" from Lancome being quite beautiful.
(I googled it up just now and my jaw is dropped to find out it was almost a decade ago. Luckily I didn't go blind or anything by wearing this old eyeshadow. I don't recommend it, though.)

EOTD - Over the rainbow

I don't really think of Lancome as a nice eyeshadow brand per se, but I like this round single color range a lot.
(note: It used to be "color focus" and now it is called "color design" with slightly different packaging.)
The color payoff is just right to my preference. The sheer yet clear color is very easy to blend in and stays true for a long time.
It is amazing I can say the same thing about this antique shade! (Once again, I don't recommend this. ;p)

Lancome Rainbow

Rainbow is a bright medium blue with slight sheen.

I created this look basically using these three products.
lined with stila smudgepot in Starry night
Lancome Rainbow all over the lids
blended with laura mercier Mermaid

I felt almost nostalgic doing this look cause I remember myself getting all excited up about brighter colors back then, and indeed I wore vivid colors like this more often than now. :)

"If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why oh why, can't I?"

Here is my recent practice take on "Over the Rainbow", accompanied by my guitar partner David. ;)

Happy weekend, everyone!
