I used Kat's Sinner palette ($36 at Sephora) rather than the one used in the video, but came out with similar results. For my eyeliner, I used Maybelline Line Stiletto ($6 at most drugstores and Wal-Marts), and I really like how easy it is to make lines with. It will come off if I rub my eye, which kind of sucks, but I'm a noob and I don't know if they all do that. I'm sure the total effect would have looked better on me had I used mascara, but I'm terrified of mascara getting into my eyes and bothering my contacts, so I didn't use any. My contacts are very sensitive to foreign things.
I first tried getting this look using the spongy brushes that come with eye shadows and was a bit disappointed (I looked a bit like a raccoon), so I took a chance and bought a rather expensive makeup brush at Sephora ($18, but it's double-sided!). It made a HUGE difference and I love the way it blends the eye shadow like in the video! I definitely recommend it.
