This is the last one I have (right now, *cough*) - you can see RD311 here, RD319 here, and BR616 here.
|Single swipe of GD817. It's so pretty. I love eye shadows this color.|
GD817 is the oddest one, because it's a coppery gold. And now I know you're thinking, "But Larie, what would you possibly want with that?"
|GD817, worn very sheerly on its own.|
Here are a few combinations I've tried:
|Under Dior Enchanted Rose lip gloss. This is one of my favorite combinations - great low-key, healthy rosy nude lip. Other face makeup: Origins CC Cream (sample), Armani Sun Fabric Bronzer in 400. Eyes are Laura Mercier Rose Gold, Sugar Frost, and Amethyst Caviar Sticks, plus liner. Please excuse fluffy hair.|
I love wearing it under gloss - like Dior Enchanted Rose. Favorite summer combination so far, I think (and it's not even summer!). It's also good under YSL 103 Opium Persan. Or any gloss, really - one that's not too metallic.
|Lightly blotted in the center over Shiseido RD319 Pomodoro. Adds a bit of dimension.|
|Over NARS Carthage. (Do I miss my fringe? Ho hum. I'm such a waffle).|
Over a matte, bright pink lip? Check. It's transformed! Although I can't wear this shade of pink any more, guys. Look at that clash. *pulls paper bag over head*
And last but not least, paired with a brilliant red for that holiday effect. This is with Maybelline Signature Scarlet.
Do I think everyone needs it? No. But if you're prone to experimenting with lip colors and like having a fun shade to change things up, it's hard to beat this one. Since it's not as fluid as a gold gloss, I feel like it's easier to control and use sparingly, which is key (although hey, bronzy gold lips could work on the right person - that person is just not me, haha).
If you have this one, let me know your favorite way to wear it! Even if you don't, what else should I try with it?
