FOTD Featuring MAC Lady Grey Eye Shadow Quad and MAC Me Over

OMG, so we woke up this morning, turned the comp on... business as usual... and NOTHING WAS THERE! Upon further inspection a new user was somehow created, so all of our stuff is under the old, original user (currently I'm backing up with a pile of discs), but how WEIRD is that! Anyone know anything about computers? Does that normally randomly happen? Must I have hit a key or something that did that? Or is there a virus or something on here? Regardless, we're wiping the whole thing out and cleaning tonight. But I'd LOVE to be enlightened by the techies. I hate not knowing why things happen!

Okay, on to today's post! This will be my third and final look of items from the MAC Me Over Collection. This features the Lady Grey quad, which doesn't look so wow on swatches, but POPS on the eyes. For the two other looks, you can click the links here (I suggest a right click, open new window, so that you aren't navigated away from this page): Fun & Classy, Neutral.


For this look I used:
~ MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer NW25
~ Lancome Dual Finish Powder Matte Bisque II
~ Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF 20 - 1 Cream
~ Dior DiorShow Brow Styler
~ MAC Brow Set - Clear
~ MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara
~ Urban Decay Primer Potion
~ MAC Lady Grey Quad (Hazy Day in the crease and to smudge Raven Eye Kohl, Lady Grey on the lid, Tendersmoke to blend above the crease, All Races to highlight).
~ MAC Raven Eye Kohl
~ MAC Stunner Powder Blush
~ MAC Curvaceous Lipglass

I love this look because if you saw me in person, unless the sun is shining directly in my eyeballs, they are completely brown. This quad brings out the green hints like you wouldn't believe. I've always wanted green or blue eyes, so this quad is about as close as I'll come to that.

I didn't buy the other quad in this collection. I heard too many bad things about it... did anyone here buy it? I am interested to see if anyone has anything positive to say!

I bought the evil eye quad. True, swatching the colors you get almost no payoff. However, on the eyes with a base, they are fine. A bit patchy so you have to blend more than usual, but worth it. I have never gotten so many compliments about how blue my eyes are except this past week when I have used the evil eye quad.

I love this look you did!

I got Raven at my closest CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet) but you can sometimes find it on ebay or try the sales on Specktra/LJ. It has been released a few times. It's about time MAC did it again tho, along with Black Karat and Orpheus!
