The Mirabella Masquerade Collection combines rich, shimmery jewel tones with a sophisticated allure that is irresistible. It’s a small but glamourous collection that will be perfect for holiday looks and parties.

The collection includes Eye Lights ($27), a luxury Prismatech performance shadow that provides bold color payoff in three brand new pearlized shades. When I laid eyes on these, a wealth of jewels immediately came to mind, much like years ago when I saw the crown jewels in London: amethyst, emerald, gold and rubies.

Eye Lights are highly pigmented so there is no need for primer or layering to bring out the color. The long lasting mineral formula glides on eyes and blends beautifully. The quilted pattern adds to the luxurious feel of the collection and it’s not only a topcoat!

Gilt is a beautiful yellow gold that makes eyes gleam!

When I was testing out the eyeshadows I combined Gilt (gold) with Mystery (purple) and it made me think of Mardi Gras, which made me think of celebrations and parties and….now I get the Masquerade theme!

I created this look using Gilt on the lid and the inner corner, Charade in the crease and under lower lash line, Champagne Pop Slimlights is on the brow bone, Stila Sketch Marker in black to line. Mirabella Lasting Lash Waterproof Mascara finishes off the look. I’m very happy with the way it turned out.

This time I switched out Mystery for Charade–the rest is the same.

I think I prefer the green look on me. What do you think? Here is a side-by-side pic and a little blogger trick we use-one look on one eye, the other on the other eye. And yes, the UPS man DOES look at me like I’m cuckoo for cocoa puffs!

Complete the Masquerade look with the Modern Matte Lipstick in Crimson ($26) . Truthfully, I’m not crazy about matte lipsticks–not because I don’t like the look, but because I usually don’t it on me. Combine that with my fear of red lipstick and I was intimidated by Crimson. Being the brave girl I am (haha),  I faced my fear and slicked that baby on my trembling lips. I was delightfully surprised at how this lipstick does NOT feel dry on my lips and doesn’t highlight my lip lines like most matte lipsticks do. Crimson is actually comfortable to wear and the red shade is flattering for all skin tones–not too blue, not too orange.
