KvD's Truth Palette, a 2nd look

Hi! Remember all that not totally loving the Truth palette? Well, after seeing the looks XLadyGatesX did on youtube, I realized I was just approaching this palette all wrong. It's all about a soft, pastel eye, which I don't usually think of when it comes to the KvD line.

Here is today's look.
Lid: Snake Eyes
Crease/lower lashline: Galeano
Browbone/inner corner: Sugar Skull
Liner: Prague, used wet. 

Do you have this palette? What are your favorite looks from it? I'd love to see what you've put together!

Look of the week: Sea green eyes

My camera wouldn't capture a good close-up, sorry!
Hi! A new eyeshadow (MAC's Contrast, a gorgeous, shimmering navy blue) recently made its way into my collection, but it remained untouched until this week.  It made a perfect compliment to some of the shadows in my Truth palette!  I'm excited to play with more looks using this color, but for now, here's the breakdown of this look:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
from Kat Von D's Truth palette:
Finland (shimmering pale aqua) - used all over lid
Snake Eyes (shimmering apple green with gold pearl)  -outer third of eye/crease
Sugar Skull (pale white gold) -highlight
MAC Liquidlast Liner- Inky (navy blue with faint pearl)
MAC Contrast (slightly shimmery navy blue) -outer corner/crease, just a touch under the lower lashline
Dior Iconic Mascara- Black
Kat Von D's Lucifer (matte black) -brows

Benefit's Coralista blush

Clinique's Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer- corrective green
Kat Von D's Tattoo Concealer- Light
MAC Studio Fix powder foundation- NC15
Make Up Forever HD powder

Kat Von D's Painted Love Lipstick- Lovecraft (matte nude pink)
MAC Lipglass- Easy Lounger (sheer pale sparkly coral tinged pink) *sadly, this was limited edition for last summer's To the Beach collection.

Did you have a favorite look for the week?  Tell me about it in the comments!

OoOo: Dior Mitzah palette

Hi!  I just saw this and couldn't help but share.  It's the latest offering from Dior, the Mitzvah eyeshadow palette.  Yes, these are eyeshadows!  I personally love have an obsession with leopard print, but this costs nearly $100! Ouch!  Plus, I'd be afraid to mess up that gorgeous print.

If anyone out there has this palette, please swatch it for the rest of us!
