Petrol Black

My experimenting bug is back in full force meaning I’ll be bringing more looks to the blog, I’m so excited to be sharing these with you guys! These looks will serve as good practice for me in the long run as I’m not so great with eye shadows.

Last night I decided to Shop My Stash once again and see what I could come up with.

I came across my Barry M Dazzle Dust in Petrol Black that I had fallen in love with on first sight but had failed to use.

It is such a gorgeous shade I had to create a look with it!

Petrol Black is a stunning duo-chrome black pigment with green iridescence; similar to the effect of spilt petrol I guess!

It’s so hard to describe as a colour so feel free to check out some swatches HERE
