Arabic Inspired Makeup ft. Color Elation Loose Eyeshadows!

This is my third look featuring 
Color Elation Eyeshadows and I would love it if you
could check out my leopard look and my introduction
to the collection!

I am obsessed with Arabic styled makeup, I think that the intense
sexy look is so beautiful. And surprisingly enough I haven't posted
an arabic styled makeup look on my blog. I have yet to master the
technique that accompanies this style but I love how it came out!
The colors I used are bold and vibrant and definitely fun!

What are your thoughts on this type of makeup?

Basic Info:
Can be purchased on the online store: Click Here
Price: The collection of 4 eyeshadows is $21.00
Shadows not sold individually. They are all sold in 5 gram jars.

The packaging of these loose eyeshadows is great! Although
it doesn't have a sifter I think that the caps are amazing because
no loose eyeshadow comes out after closing it... meaning
you can have it stored properly without worrying about a mess. 
The eyeshadows come packaged beautifully! 

Just like I stated in both of my previous reviews, the
quality of these eye shadows in incredible! Especially for the price,
4.25 each. The packaging, containers, and pigmentation all add up
to a great product. I recommend checking out my two previous
reviews for more info. (Links are at the top of this post)
One thing I can say is that this collection is not for those who 
cringe at the sight of bold and bright shadow... if you are looking
to be the center of attention I recommend Froufrou!

Individual Descriptions:

Raspberry Jam:
a vivid hot pink with subtle shimmer. it's my favorite
shadow of the bunch, especially because it is so versatile!
Shadow, blush or lip gloss.. so many uses! In the picture above
I mixed it with clear gloss to create a sheer gloss. 

Grayed out purple with shimmer. When wet it has 
a very metallic look to it. Perfect for a daily smokey eye 
that isn't to harsh. 

A bit of a misnomer because this color doesn't remind
me of a mocha... more of a champagne with a subtle pink
undertone. Maybe Pink Champagne would have fit it better (jiijij) 
This color is gorgeous! You could see it on the inner part of my lid.
Perfect for every day!

Indigo Black:
A deep navy that is close to being black. Has 
a gorgeous metallic finish when wet. 

Swatches (left to right)
Mocha dry then wet, Raspberry Jam dry then wet, 
Amethyst dry then wet, Indigo Black dry then wet. 

Mocha has the lightest application but it is still gorgeous...
and the other shadows are very impressive!

Amazing packaging
Good price
Great pigmentation (dry and wet)
The collection goes well together

Only sold online
Cannot purchase each color individually
Mocha is gorgeous but a bit more sheer
