Eye Look With the Too Faced A` La Mode Eyes Palette Featuring Monaco With Lip Colour Options

Hello gentle readers.

I took a few photographs when I recently used my To Faced A` La Mode Eyes Palette. I really enjoy this palette. I thought that Monaco (a beautiful, intense magenta) was going to be scary but it isn't scary in the least. In fact, it is surprisingly wearable!

My eye look is comprised of:

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool over Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer. I loathe that particular Color Tattoo. It is patchy, stiff and unpleasant. But I needed a nice, bright base so I used it. Yuk.
  • Too Faced Monaco all over my lid, lash to crease. 
  • Jardin just above my orbital bone as a kind of transition shade and under my lower lashes. 
  • De La Mer in the outer corner and blended into my crease and pulled just slightly up onto my orbital bone. I tried to be careful to keep De La Mer from overtaking Monaco. 
  • Riviera on my brow bone and inner corner for highlight. 
  • Stila Smudge Stick in Tetra to line my upper lash line.
  • Loreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara. Just one generous coat. 
I like how bright and pretty these colours are, how beautifully they blend together to form gradients that look like the sky at sunrise and sunset, how bright can be fun but not in the least bit scary or intimidating. 

I'm too sexy for my hair turbie! :P 

On the rest of my face:

  • Revlon ColorStay foundation in 150 Buff.
  • Jane Iredale Circle Delete Concealer in Peach.
  • Maybelline Age Rewind concealer in Brightening under my eyes and as a highlighter.
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light.
  • Too Faced Chocolate Soliel Bronzer. 
  • Maybelline Master Highlight Blush in Pink Rose.
  • Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash.
  • Rimmel Stay Glossy lip gloss in Non Stop Glamour.

With a neutral lip. This is the Rimmel Stay Glossy lip gloss in Non Stop Glamour. This gloss is a sheer nude with a beautiful gold shimmer. It's a fave. The nude lip makes my overall skin tone look a little more tan.

 Bright lip option is Loreal Colour Riche Extraordinary Lip Colour in Pink Tremelo. This lippie makes me look more fair, brighter. Isn't it amazing how a different lip can change your overall look?

Hair is styled with a bit of Derm Organic and Alterna products. I am trying to learn how to work with my natural wurl (wave/curl) hair texture. My results are still hit or miss but I'll get the hang of it. Rocking my natural texture is easier on my hair since it has gotten so thin and I have to wear it so short, for now. Would anyone be interested in a detailed post on how I do my hair up all wurly? (Did that sound way too conceited?)

Okay, so, there is my eye look done with my Too Faced A` La Mode Eyes palette featuring Monaco.

Did you pick up this palette, yet? What do you think of it? Are you enjoying it as much as I am? Were you a little scared off by Monaco? Now that you see that it isn't scary, at all, will you dive in? Please do tell.

Thank you so much for coming in and reading. Take care and have a beautiful day!


  1. Love Monaco, it isn't scary at all! I'm beginning to realise that every eyeshadow can be made to work depending on combination used and how heavyhanded we are. I prefer the Pink Tremelo lippy on you :D

  2. I love that Pink on your eyes... gorgeous!

  3. Oooo soooo sexaaaayyyyyyy!! Haha I love the hair turbie pic!!

  4. Turbie pic made me smile :) I really like your girly-girl all-pink look.

  5. That bright pink looks so good on you! Eyes and lips!

  6. Love the juxtaposition of pink/ eyes. And that turbant is very Liz Taylor diamonds, all good in my book.

  7. Thank you. :) Hee! Hee! No one can rock a turban like she did. :D

  8. So do I. It's bright (for me, VERY bright! LOL) but not too much. :D

  9. Monaco is really beautiful. I admit, the first time I started to apply it, I thought I was crazy. That it would never work, but it does and it is so wearable. :) I kind of like the Pink Tremelo, too. Thank you so much. :)

  10. Thank you. I really like these shadows. :)

  11. What a difference that bright lippie makes! I love it! I really want this palette now.

  12. Well I had to send in a search party to find the under eye circles you've said you have...I wish MY under eyes looked that good! :) Love the last pic. <3

  13. Thanks for the tutorial, you're right Monaco IS wearable! I do prefer the nude lip to the bright one.

  14. So pink and cute :) Love the look you created!

  15. I did a YT video once with my hair in one of those turbies! I like em!

  16. Turbie!!! Your look is so summery and fun!

  17. Love that eyeshadow look & Pink Tremolo!

  18. I love the way this turned out! So cute!

  19. gorgeous eye and i love the lip color!

  20. Here it is! With the lip color, I really like the look. I'm afraid to use red/raspberry shadow because I already have red eyelids from blepharitis, but I love to see others step out! Your pix are adorable :)

  21. I love how well the shadow colors play up your eyes. Very pretty.

  22. loving lip option #2. so beautiful
