Boy, I tell ya, sisters…eye shadows just have NOT been showing me love these days. I’ve really been craving the color magenta with blue undertones. I blame in on The Falsies‘ packaging and NYX’s African Queen. I decided to pull out a color I haven’t touched in ages! MAC’s Pink Pearl pigment.
Just look how that baby glows.
I used it in a FOTD Friday a good 2 years ago.
Can you say FAIL ten times fast? Someone out there is about to try it…ha! But seriously, I wasn’t a fan of this look. I will definitely be trying it again with a red or pink base.
Then I figured that I would play around with my Black Opal palettes. And look what happened…
Somebody say FAIL twenty times fast. At that point, I just figured it wasn’t meant for me to be rocking shadows and so I just settled for taking pictures of some of my new NYX palettes.
I love the color options in this palette. It’s the perfect blend of neutrals with great pops of color. But I was disappointed in the color payoff and at how chalky they were.
So I pulled out something a little more exciting.
Wow…sers! Check out the swatches….
I love that purple in the middle but you know what? I’m not sure about wearing these babies on the lid. I would straight up try and scratch my eye ball out if if a speck of glitter fell in. I may give it a try.
But not for quite some time since it appears that eye shadows aren’t liking me these days.
What have you been rockin’ on your lids these days?
Have a great weekend!
