Wet N Wild Color Icon in Greed and Covergirl LashExact Waterproof EOTD

I had bought the Wet N Wild Color Icon palette in Greed fairly recently, I wasn't terribly excited by it but knew that the peachy tone would likely be something I liked when on.  I don't have a lot of blacks/silvers/grays compared to warm tones, so I figured it'd be good to add that in as well.  I do really like how these six shadow palettes have 3 matte and 3 shimmer shadows.  And the mattes are easy to work with, no less!  Minor disappointment would be the shimmery peachy pink color has a lot of fallout and is difficult to get any product out of the pan.  It's pretty once you can pack some on though.
I also had bought this Covergirl LashExact waterproof mascara some time ago, I'd been waiting for my L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes to dry out and after having that stuff flake into my eyes on a daily basis of late I decided it was time to chuck it and try out the new CG.  I don't normally use waterproof since I don't need it as such, but I was curious to try it out with curling my lashes.  Also something I didn't do on a regular basis previously because I was pretty lucky to get naturally fairly curled lashes.  So it was on sale, etc etc and I got it.  I also was looking for a rubbery bristled brush, something that wasn't as chunky as the L'Oreal or CG LashBlast  This one has a thinner, flexible rubber bristled wand - just what I was looking for.  Here's a closeup of the brush.
I put this makeup on about 9 hours before taking this picture so the lining I had done with the matte black was seriously fading (not to mention I took a little post-dinner catnap in it :) ) but the matte peach was still going strong.  The shimmery peach is only visible on the inner half of the lid but it had slid off somewhat too.  My lashes have definitely stayed curled as well, I used the e.l.f. eyelash curler pictured above, only held a couple seconds midway and at the tips.
I've been liking the peachy look so much, wore it two days straight this weekend (a rarity!).  I have also been wearing my MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Pink Porcelain for blush (finding the Sigma contour brush works well to get decent color payoff) and my Physicians Formula Bronze Booster in Fair to Light.
