This week in eyeshadow has been mostly a homage to my new palettes by Coastal Scents (www.coastalscents.com). It's an online cosmetics company that has really reasonably priced makeup in numerous different palettes or you can purchase what they call Hot Pots, individual eyeshadows, for $2 and create your own palette. I picked a lot of neutrals, green, champagne and berry tones for my Hot Pots. Plus I have two other smaller Hot Pot palettes (Winterberry and Fall Festival) that I am looking forward to breaking into soon. Lots of color selection with these and just plain awesomesauce. Their Revealed palette, which is what I used for my Friday look, is a dupe (duplicate) for the Naked and Naked2 palettes by Urban Decay Cosmetics). Neutral shades galore in that one. Plus a lot of matte shades that make buffing out and defining the crease a real easy job.
The shipping was cray-cray but in a good way. Everything was bundled so tight in foam and bubble wrap that nuthin was gonna break those shadows. :) I also purchased two crease brushes that I am totally loving too. Just one fab company.
On Wednesday I was giving love to some of my Revlon ColorStay quads. They were both new for me (I have a lot of these quads. I have a makeup eyeshadow crush with my Revlon quads) in the colors Addictive and Harmonious. Addictive is a real neutral keeper. A must have for any collection. Put this in your makeup bag and you will be set for a week away. But the Harmonious has two bright shades, an orange and green, that I was just dying to try. Wednesday was all about the orange shade.
Tuesday I pulled out my BH Cosmetics (www.bhcosmetics.com) Galaxy Chic palette. This is a palette of baked eyeshadows that you can use either wet or dry. I went for a pink look and some brownish Mars color on the outer edge. This palette doesn't have matte shades so I pulled out my Lorac Pro Palette to use that lovely Mauve shade that went so well with the pink lid color. I have a BH Cosmetics 88 Palette that is filled with neutral shades that I really need to dig into more. Plus, my Malibu and San Francisco palettes are tres fab too!
Monday I was in NYX country using my Love in Paris 9pan in the neutral / orange-ish range. It is called Let Them Eat Cake, and this is probably my favorite 9pan of the 5 that I have from this line. I used a cream eyeshadow (Not Just Nudes) by Revlon to give my lid a way to grab the color from my L'Oreal Infallible eyeshdaow pressed pigment in the color Eternal Sunshine. I am in LOVE with the Infallible eyeshadows. Someday I might have them all but for now, I think I have 6. I have two little palettes of the Revlon cream shadows and I think I definitely need to check out more of these things. I just love, love, love them!
This was the week in eyeshadows for me. As for my lips, I went mostly with the nude lip. I look a bit odd wearing too bright a color. Maybe someday I will grow into it.
I used to put my Eyeshadow of the Day on my Facebook page but people in my RL kept asking me if I was sponsored by Revlon or whatever company I was talking about that day. So, I moved my posts to Twitter. You can see my Twitter feed from the last week at the right. Plus, I got a couple of cool shoutouts from cosmetics companies. It is always neat when big companies like that acknowledge the little guy.
Hope you all have a wonderful week. Stay beautiful and let me know what eyeshadows you are loving and wearing.
