Stars 'n' Rockets FOTD!

Stars 'n' Rockets is one of my favourite Mac eye shadows. It's a veluxe pearl finish which means it's incredibly smooth and pigmented with a duo chrome finish. It's a beautiful purple with a pink and blue sheen.

I chose to wear it on my lid today, due to the shape of my eyes it's not that visible at a first glance...


But BLINK and voila. I love it, it's perfect as it's bright without being over the top for day time.


Products used:
  • FACE: Bourjois 10hr Sleep effect foundation + Collection 2000 perfecting minerals + Bobbi Brown creamy concealer.
  • CHEEKS: Benefit Hoola
  • EYES: Mac 'Stars 'n' Rockets' e/s all over the lid, 'Naked Lunch' on inner corner and 'Cork' in the crease and lower lash line. Bourjois brown eyeliner to tight line and Mac Zoom fast black lash mascara.
  • LIPS: Mac 'Oak' lip liner and Barry M 'Strawberry Milkshake' lip gloss.


HAIR UPDATE: The henna hair dye I used which I mentioned in THIS post completely washed out, so I opted for Clairol's Perfect 10 in the lightest cool brown.

And.... Of course I had to share a picture of the belt I was wearing today. Isn't it gorgeous? I'm sorry to say it's really old, it's real leather and handmade, I think it was from Jaegar or Reiss.


How do you wear Stars 'n' Rockets? I sometimes like to wear it on my lower lash line with winged eyeliner and nothing else on the lid too.

esteeem said...

stars & rockets is apparently a dupe for UD's "fishnet" eyeshadow.. is it two tone pink & purple? coz then i may jus have to buy...!

Peachypops said...

You always look so perfectly put together, and the eyeshadow looks gorgeous on you :)
I think Urban Decay do an eyeshadow that is very similar to Stars 'n' Rockets, I can't remember what it's called..
I know I have it though, yay!

Looking lovely hun.. I think you were wearing this the other day when we met for dinner?! was meaning to ask you what you were wearing? Really compliments your complexion.. xxx

ModestyBrown said...

I love Stars n Rockets, I really like how you've used it too. In the Summer I wore it a lot as a crease colour with Vex on the lid. It makes a really interesting combination. I do think of it as a more warm weather combination though! I will give you eye look a try :)

P.S: I can never get over how PERFECT your eyebrows are. Do you have them threaded? If so, which *genius* do you visit? :0)
