Prussian Tilt

I have had the blue Chromaline for a few weeks now (luv ya Tish!) and hadn't really played with it yet, so today I decided to give it a shot. For those of you that are unfamiliar, these are MAC Pro products that come in containers like paint pots and make GREAT bases. They are extremely smooth and creamy, can go on opaque or sheer and are completely water-proof. This one is so dark that it kinda sucked up the colour (for instance, I used Sureal e/s which is kinda irridescent aqua, but the green tones were sucked up by the blue Chromaline) but I also have bought the white one, so I am counting on that one to make the colours pop. I really hope that I love these ... the texture of them is amazing.

BTW ... per the concern of one of my blog followers, I do want to point out that SOME of the Chromalines are not eye-safe. The white, black and blue ones are completely safe for the eye. The red, orange, yellow, green and purple are not intended to be used on the eyes. So no worries Nell, I am not putting my eyes at risk for this. Do not confuse this with the MAC Chromacakes, which are indeed not safe for the eye area. Thanks for your concern Nell!
