L'Oreal Paris Project Runway: Colors Take Flight Limited Edition Collection: Charming Cockatoo

Project Runway inspired Charming Cockatoo Eyeshadow Quad: $9.99
What is it?
Project Runway is sponsored by L'Oreal Paris and they created a makeup collection to go with the bird challenge from Season 9. 


Why did I buy it?
I love Project Runway (yay Anya!!) and wanted to try one of the bird inspired makeup collections.  I chose the Charming Cockatoo Collection Eyeshadow Quad and Lipstick (I searched all over for the blush, but couldn't find it...)


Should you sample this?
I chose this set because it had colors I don't usually use but wasn't outrageous.  On the display there was also a take away tutorial to show you what to do.  I don't know why they put these sponge applicators in eyeshadow sets, you should really be using brushes!! 

For color 1 (lid), I used my Sigma E55 Eye Shading brush
For color 2 (crease), I used my Sigma E40 Tapered Blending brush (this is my favorite brush!!)
For color 3 (brow bone), I used my E70 Medium Angled Shading brush
For color 4 (outer crease corner), I used my Sigma E40 Tapered Blending brush again!
All of these brushes are included in the Eyes Kit or can be purchased individually from Sigmabeauty.com (click the link at the right for a special Sigma Deal!)



The lip color is a dark purple brown and I lined my lips with a nude pencil. 

Other products used in my pictures were: 
Benefit They're Real mascara
MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 in Medium Plus
MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush
MAC Lipliner in Stripdown
