I have palettes and makeup galore enough for 10 lifetimes. Of a whole household of women. Trust me. And I love them all equally, so it sometimes take a while to rotate amongst them. But this past week has been a Sariayu 25 Best Choices Eyeshadow Palette (25 Years Anniversary Palette) Week.Here are a couple more eye looks. For both looks, NYX HD eye primer and Illamasqua fine pencil in Peace (for eyebrows) were used.

The first stars the amazing color on the rightmost of the second from bottom row, placed in the outer v. It is a  maroon red, that translated into a golden dark brown with a hint of red. I mix it with the gold from the first row up top, second from the left, for the inner corners. Other colors playing sidekick are marked by the star shape (a black to intensify the outer v and for the bottom lash line; and a light peach for highlighting under the brows). Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black mascara is on the lashes.

The second look stars the pink right smack on the middle of the second row from the bottom, placed in the inner corners. It’s a bright pink on the pan, but translated to a soft pink with a slight purple sheen on my skin. Mixed in with the bunch are the colors marked with the heart shape (a very light pink for the rest of the mobile lid, mixed with black in the outer v; black mixed with the purple for the bottom lash line; and a silver white as highlighter under the brows). Bourjois 1001 Cils mascara in blue completes the look.

It just occurred to me that I have hardly reviewed a local, Indonesia beauty product on this blog. Eyeshadows are what local brands excel in, and my absolute favorite is the Sariayu 25 years anniversary eyeshadow palette. It is a collection of 25 eyeshadow colors from various Sariayu collections over the years (1987 – 2011). It is still being sold at various Martha Tilaar Shops (the umbrella brand of Sariayu) which you can find at various malls in Indonesia. It used to be available online as well, but I think you’ll need to hurry as stocks may be dwindling. I note that the price has increased by at least threefold since I bought it (2011).

I will do an in-depth review later, but for now a quick look at two of the colors, a navy blue and a brown taupe color (top row third and second from your right, respectively). The colors in this palette are all very pigmented, and these two are no exception. The thin strip of blue line is done using a wet brush; note the extra brightness that liquid brings out. In the pictures below where the blue is worn to line the upper lid, and the taupe the lower lashline, but used dry.Sariayu 25 Palette7
