UD Rollergirl Palette LOTD

Hey there! I just couldn't wait to use my UD Rollergirl Palette after finally posting swatches of it last week. So, I used it the next day! Here are some pictures of my look. I used all the colors in the palette for this look, as well as the liner and lipgloss that came with it. I really like the way it turned out.

Here is what I did:
1. Apply UDPP in Eden allover lid up to the browbone.
2. Apply Too Faced First Base eyeshadow base on just the eyelid.
3. Using an eyeshadow brush, pat Suspect on the eyelid up to the crease.
4. Wipe off that brush and use it to apply Darkhorse in the outer 2/3 of the crease. Smoke it out a bit.
5. Using a blending brush, apply Verve to the inner corner and browbone, blending into Darkhorse.
6. Wipe off the blending brush and use it to apply Woodstock just in the outer crease. Blend well.
7. Apply Whiskey 24/7 eyeliner and wing it out. I smudged the wing part a bit to soften it.
8. Using a flat or small eyeshadow brush, apply a thin line of Suspect under the lower lashline.
9. Wipe off the brush and use it to apply a little Verve in the inner corner under the lower lashline.
10. Finish the look with your favorite mascara, I use Buxom Lash in Blackest Black.

I also wore the Crush Lip Junkie lipgloss that comes with the set and I used NYX Peach Blush on my cheeks. I did this makeup look last Thursday before going to work. I work at a restaurant and did a double that day, so around 8-9 hours. Here is what my makeup looked like after I got home from work:
As you can see, it is still quite in tact. The eyeshadow on my brow bone is pretty much gone, and my eyeliner seems to have creeped ever so slightly. But there is no noticeable creasing. We all know already how much UDPP rocks but I have to wonder if that Too Faced First Base is making any impact on the staying power. It can't hurt, right? :)

Note: All of the eyeshadow brushes I used were ELF. I used the Eyeshadow brush from the $1 line for steps 3,4,8 and 9. Then I used their studio Crease brush for steps 5 and 6. I have several of their studio line brushes and they work great. Their Crease brush is probably my favorite makeup brush.
