This entry features close up pictures and a look which I did featuring the RMK SS2012 eyeshadow palette. (link here for the sneak preview entry) I got my palette in 03 Gray, which contains a variety of pastel sparkling shades, and a gunmetal grey base shade.
I also used the brushes that came with the palette, which I am very impressed with, because they are made of natural hairs, and are pretty soft and dense. My only gripe is that the brush is tiny - well, it has to fit into the palette after all. The brush was able to pick up the eyeshadow very well, and apply smoothly onto my eyelids.
I applied the base color which is the gunmetal gray on my lids, and then I applied the lilac shade on top of it, and blended it up to my crease. I used a pale shimmery shade just under my browbones. The eyeshadows are quite smooth despite the shiny bits, and the colors while pretty, runs a little on the sheer side. I only used a colorless neutral eyeshadow primer before applying the eyeshadows, but you could use a colored base if you want the colors to show up more.
However, as this is a 'spring' look, I kept the light sheer-ish color in line with the theme.
Overall, the palette offers a good selection of neutral and colored pastels, and they work well together and on its own.
