Charcoal Gray and Pink

hmmmm, I'm not entirely thrilled with the pics of this look, I think I liked this way more in person.  I do however like my new NYX brow kit (perhaps a review is in order) and the smokiness of my lower lash line. I didn't really know where I was going with this, but knew I wanted to use my new Sephora shadow in the crease.  So here is what I used:

L'oreal Studio secrets base
MAC Studio Fix powder C2
MAC The Perfect Cheek blush
NYX Black Lable lipstick- Diva

Sephora City Fog applied to crease with MAC 217 brush (matte midtone gray)
NYX JEP Oyster on lid as base
NYX Cream Cheese on inner corner of lid (shimmery white)
Fyrinnae The Fancy Lad on rest of lid (sparkly warmish pink with green sparkle)
NYX Black  to deepen crease and on lower lashline, with some Sephora City Fog  to smoke it out
MAC Romping on very outer edge of lids, between pink and gray
Fyrinnae Parental Advisory wetlined on upper lash line (Vivid shimmery royal purple. Almost two-toned because it has a blue base, yet the shimmer takes on a slightly iridescent reddish hue. , that showed up way more blue on camera)
Black pencil on waterlines
Ben Nye Toast on brow bone, with some NYX Cream Cheese for shimmer

Natural light- a bit too bright me thinks:
