Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

[ Edited ]

My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well! 

If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade).  the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week).  I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! :smileywink: Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls!

This past week I was working with Stila's In the Know.  I've had (and used it off and on) for a while, but all mattes gets a bit boring for me.  So I used it Monday-Wednesday, then we had snow Thursday.  Friday I used my much loved Stila French Riviera trio (kitten, grace and mahogany).  Yesterday I used a Bare Minerals High Shine eyecolor in Glisten -- and it is REALLY high shine. It felt like a bit much so I blended a bit of one of the matte browns from In the Know over it and it added some nice depth and cut the edge a bit.  (Today was more shoveling and if I put anything on it's only to play).

 

Next week should be interesting with a coordinated Bronze palette.  I'll see what I can do in a single color family like that since it's meant more for one look.

 

I'm going to have to add to my list.  Not only is there the NARS palette I forgot, but I got another YSL Pure Chromatics (with pink shades) and then yesterday found the Stila Masterpiece trio of palettes at Nordstrom Rack for $16 or $17.  And I got one of the Dancing with the Stars sets for $15-25% since it was on clearance.

 

Yes, I have a problem.  But they look like so much fun.  I might even bump one up because it might work for travel.  I need to pick one to try for that soon.

Ghkim & Beethousand both suggested it might be time to start a new thread. I figured why not? :smileyhappy: I like user friendly! Lol

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

how about the vice palette and then i can live through you since i didn't get one?

nikki

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Or the Creme Couture that you have made me want so much. I blame you, and only you. 

sparklekai

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

is that the one you're on the hunt for nikki?

nikki

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Yes, I am pretty sure it's because I saw the back of it in Shortie's stash, and then decided that I needed it more than anything else in the world.

 

And it is sold out everywhere. I even checked websites in Dubai.

Ooooooo Shortstuff! You have wonderful taste in palettes!!! Go KVD!!! I miss mine terribly and can live vicariously through you!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Excellent idea with the use of singles by brand.  And now since your original post, I have acquired 11 different palettes, enabler!!! :smileywink: 

I'll use my Tarte Coral Crush this week.  

nikki

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

I definitely want to do a singles parade when done with this.

 

Also, a lipstick parade. 

 

I think I'd do one a day though, and have weekends as cheat days.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

A lipstick parade would be awesome - I have... uh, a lot of lipstick and would probably need a couple of months to get through a daily-with-weekend-cheat-days lipstick parade. It's also my plan in six months or so when I'm done with the palette parade. :smileytongue:

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Here is my list:

 

i did naked basics last week: next up Ladybird

Cliffhanger - Bare Minerals 2/7/14 boring but good colors that i will keep and mix with singles
Grege - Dior 2/14/14 love this palette especially for neutral looks for work
Ilium - Chanel 2/26/14 love this one but i'm glad it was only 3 days with only a 4 pan palette
Ladybird - KvD  3/17/14 the only shade i really like here is the orange. everything else looks too warm on me except maybe the purple and the black. if i ever find another orange shade to replace this one, i'm going to tsb this palette
Lagons - Chanel 3/12/14 this was a tough one to for 3 days straight bc it's so blue, but i did it! i think i will reserve this one for nights where i can be more dramatic
Les Fumes - Guerlain
Les Gris - Guerlain 
Spoiler
Mac - custom made 15 shadow palette
Meet Matte - TheBalm 3/28/14 this was really easy to use, plenty of colors, i love this plaette
Naked1 - Urban Decay i took this one on vacay with me because i knew it was going to be so versatile and it was, i just wish there was one completely matte lid color; normally i would have taken 3-4 palettes on a trip but palette parade made me take only 1, which is wonderful for packing!
Prelude - Chanel
Pro - Lorac 3/21/14 this one was really easy to use, love it. i just worry that i will go through the cream color too soon
Z palette with a bunch of random shadows
#8 - Kevyn Aucoin

#6 - Giorgio Armani 3/4/14 this one was great to either dress up or down since it has a shimmer option
Silvered Topaz - Tom Ford
Golden Mink - Tom Ford
Spoiler
LM artist palette 2014 4/4/14
Naked Basics - Urban Decay very work appropriate but i am glad i am only spending 3 days with this one too because it is getting a little boring 3/7/14 i actually really like this one - great to travel with, great for work
