Cabaret Noir belongs to Fyrinnae's Arcane Magic range, which basically means it's super, super sparkly! Cabaret Noir has a black base with tons of olive green shimmer and glitter. When blended the glitter isn't so visible, so I applied it first on Urban Decay Primer Potion and blended it to a smoky look, then patted some Pixie Epoxy primer on the lid with my finger and gently patted on another layer of the shadow with a small, flat brush. Result: glitter galore! I only used a matte white as highlight in addition, other than that it's purely Cabaret Noir.
I paired the green shadow with a classic red lip. The product I used is Copenhagen by Nyx, a matte lip cream, you can find my review of it here.
Now that I look at the pics, I think I should have blended the shadow further to the side and up, making a wing-like shape. Maybe next time then! The strong light washes make-up out a bit, I have to learn how to put in on even darker ;D

|Shots with eyes downcast definitely show it!|
