I don't own that many eyeshadows actually, and I rarely use them since there is no ocassion for me to wear them. Wear to class? Nah.. Don't like to look so extravagant in class. I am able to stand out without putting any artificial colouring on my skin. My new hairstyle is enough to make the glass go crazy. *bangga*
These are all what I have currently:
The Maybelline Trio Eyeshadow was bought long long time ago, but I don't have the heart to throw it away. Not because I love it or anything, but just in case I need to use them when the time comes. Haha. Fasio Trio Eyeshadow is quite new.
These two are also quite old. Got it at half price during one of the Guardian Warehouse sales. The colours are pretty, but not pigmented enough. But I just found out that the colour can be enhanced when applied with a damp brush, so will be experimenting before deciding whether to discard them or not.
Ah, cheapest of the lot. Priced at less than RM10 per colour, and there are so many to choose from! Bought a few during one of their sales and ended spending around RM84 one shot. So crazy! But yes, I like elianto stuff because they're cheaper! Nail polishes at RM5? Boleh saja! Single eyeshadows from RM5-RM8? Woohoo!
The SILKYGIRL Funky Eyelight Pencils are like, "eyeshadows in a form of pencils" as Cawan Milo had told me before. She recommended them and so did Yng Jiun, so I gladly purchased 3, not at a time though. Haha. Bought my 1st colour which was the number 10 in Sasa at around RM13, and the bought the other 2 at Watson's since SILKYGIRL had a Christmas promotion, selling them at RM10.80 each! =O They're not bad, although I find the colour has a hard time coming up if you're skin is oily. So must blot-blot first. Looking forward to playing around with them. =D As for the Maybelline Pencil Shadow, I like the colour, that's why I bought it. =P
As you can see, that most products I bought were impulse-based, rather that which colour I need, which suits my skin, are they safe?, yadayadayada.. I believe that somehow, you are able to make the most out of anything, and in eyeshadow cases, you can mix and match to make them suit you, or create new colours/shades! And of coursela, I can't afford M.A.C. (i want their lipglasses!) or shu uemura yet. YET.
Anyways, currently I am going googoogaga over Majolica Majorca's eyeshadows, and am looking forward to own some since they're are said to be quite pigmented. I tried a few on my hand before while at KT's Watson's and oh my! I must have them! =D Also eyeing at Rimmel's duo eyeshadows. Found one with silver and blue combination and am planning to get it while it's on sale!
Now, the highlight of this post is actually this product by Coastal Scents:
I have seen this in some of Lauren (or panacea81 on Youtube)'s tutorials and I have been wondering a lot of things about the palette that she uses. At first I thought that she bought a palette case and just put single eyeshadows everything inside, but then in one of her videos she said she got it off eBay! =O
Last few weeks, I stumbled upon a beauty/makeup/fashion site called Blush-berry and heyheyhey! They have a feature on the palettes (but I'm not sure if it's the some one that Lauren uses) and they're from this website called Coastal Scents.
This is the matte one. They do have the 88 shimmery palette one too! But I'm more interested in the matte one. How about you? You can order from Coastal Scents itself or go to Blush-berry and they will help you get it at RM80 if not mistaken. Besides the 88, they have some other palettes too, but I bet this one is the more worthy one.
I'm still weighing the consequences of getting or not getting it. The only problem is if I just depend on this palette, I won't be able to carry it around to do touch-ups. But how NOT to have this? It has like, all the possible eyeshadow colours! =D
I guess you guys and gals have to keep on reading to see if I am ever, gonna get this palette.
