Paula Dorf's Aztec City Eye Color Palette and Lash Color Mascara in Teal

Most of you already know that I love wearing neutral eye makeup on a daily basis. Lately, I've been on the look out for ways to add a pop of color to my every day eyes. Thanks to BrandBacker and Paula Dorf Cosmetics, I've found my new favorite every day eye palette!

I have the Paula Dorf Aztec City Eye Color Palette and the Lash Color in Teal to share with you today. First of all, I loved the sleek packaging of the eye shadow palette and mascara. The mascara especially, because of the smooth matte feeling when I'm holding it between my fingers when applying. 

The Aztec City Eye Color Palette includes the five gorgeous colors pictured above, with a duo ended brush. The first color in the palette was a white, satin finish, followed by a azure blue with a golden sheen to it. The middle shade was a taupe, satin finish, and the last two colors were matte, light brown and dark brown. 

I've never owned a colored mascara before, so I was so excited to try out the Paula Dorf Lash Color in Teal. As a contact lense wearer, I was happy to discover the gentle, water-resistant, and smudge-proof formula.

With the eye shadow palette and mascara, I was able to create the eye look pictured above. First, I used the matte light brown shade in my crease, followed by applying the satin, taupe shade all over my lid. I then applied the matte dark brown in my outer corners and the satin, white shade on my brow bone. Lastly, I absolutely LOVE the look of the azure blue shade on my bottom lash line. The lighting in the picture above makes it look more golden toward the inner corner of my eye and naturally deepen into the azure blue toward my outer corner. This was BY FAR, my favorite shade in the palette as it's appearance on was constantly changing with the light.

I'd definitely recommend both of these products to anyone looking to add a pop of color to an every day neutral eye look!
