Here is a look at the shades I used. I really liked the soft, smokiness of the shades, although the pigmentation was a little weak, and the texture was a little hard and dry. Still, though, not impossible to work with, and a great combination of shades.
I used the lightest grey as a highlight shade, and applied a little in the inner corner as well (although I don't think you can really see it), the medium blue-purple shade on the lid, and the dark navy shade in the contour area. I didn't use the black in this look, because well - black is just black, right? Also, I was going for a softer, subtler look, that didn't scream "OMG BLUE EYESHADOW!" I hope this made it!
Here's a look at the eye, from another angle so you can see the shimmer of the shades and take a closer look at the blending. I quite like this. As you can see in the photo, the blue has a very interesting glowy sheen to it - it glows and shimmers, but it isn't duochrome or anything. It just glows very subtly. All the shades are shimmery, but nothing here stands out as being too much. I actually like it!
All in all, I quite like this palette. If you're going for a full-on, dark dramatic bue eye, the Striking in South Beach Palette won't be for you, but if you want a more wearable version of the same eye look, and a subtle version perfect for both day and night, this is the look for you!
