Hi Von,

How creative you are. With just one eyeshadow, you can create 2 different looks. I am also amazed with the EOTD Marathon you did.

You look very pretty in the last two photos.

Real blackberries accompany Black Berry eyeshadow.

Hi Irene,

Thank you for the comment, and the compliments.

Vonvon said...

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you. :)

Vonvon said...

Thank you, Fieran! But I did wish the shade on the pan appears as it is on the lids...well...at least Almost Noir kind of did the trick. ;)

Vonvon said...

Thank you, gio!

Vonvon said...

Thank you, Pinch! :)

Vonvon said...

Hi Amy,

No worries. But may I know what's wrong with that? My forehead is naturally very high, and I am comfortable with it. :)

Fieran said...

@Vonvon Ah now I realise what you mean. The Almost Noir based-version looks much more rich.

Witoxicity said...

Both versions are gorgeous! I especially love what you did with Almost Noir, dark and a bit smokey.

Vonvon said...

Yes, Fieran. The one without Almost Noir as a base was much sheerer.

Vonvon said...

Thank you, Witoxicity! :)

I love to use Almost Noir for everything where appropriate. ;)
