5 Days of Metal - Featuring Coastal Scents 88 Metal Mania Palette

Last week I did a series entitled 5 Days of Neutrals in which I used the bh Cosmetics 88 Neutral Palette. I used the same palette for each Face of the Day last week. I found that this was a great way to really get use out of a palette. In addition show that these palettes are versatile and the different eye looks that can be created using them. 

For myself I always investigate palettes online that I am interested in purchasing beforehand. By doing this I get an idea of what the products look like, read reviews, and see what looks other people have created using the products. These factors really influence my decisions when buying a particular product. 

I have decided to do another series this week entitled 5 Days of Metal. The palette that I will be using all week is a palette by Coastal Scents called the 88 Metal Mania Palette. This palette contains 88 metallic eyeshadows just as the name suggests. Today's Face of the Day was created using a gold and the greens from this palette.

 I drew inspiration for today's look based on a pair of green and yellow chandelier earrings that I have that I completely adore. I was also inspired by an Ann Loft sweater that I have that has a yellow rose pattern. 

Brow Bone & Inner Corner - White Shimmer (1st row, 1st color)

First 3rd of the Lid - Gold Shimmer (3rd row, 2nd color)

Middle of the Lid - Emerald Green Shimmer (8th row, 3rd color)

Outer Corner - Olive Green Shimmer (8th row, 4th color)

Under the Eye - Revlon Bronze Flash Eyeliner and Olive Green Shimmer used above to set the eyeliner. 

Does anyone else have this palette? Thoughts on this palette?
