Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

 

Ok so I need some cheering up today!

******************************

I thought I would create a series of discussion where we could all share our make-up stashes. This is just meant to be fun.

 

How it works: Just take a picture of the stash mentioned in this post and upload to the discussion board. Feel free to tell us what you like best and included swatches. I know some people would love that Smiley Wink

 

Ok ladies time to share your make-up stash for your eyes. This includes eye shadows, cream shadows, eye primers, pencils, mascaras, false lashes and eyebrow products.

 

This is the 2nd in a series of post I will do.

 

Still to come: lips, brushes, nails, perfume, skin care, body care, and hair care.

 

 

I love mascaras!!! My favs are Diorshow Blackout, Too Faced Better Than Sex and Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum.

 

I always loved MAC eye shadows for long wearing, pigmented, non-staining, bright and bold colors. Eventually I discovered UD and I also love their shadows. Now I think I have enough and trying not to buy any. lol

 

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Omg. How do you store all of this?! Amazing collection!!!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

I use containers similar to these. I have two in the medium size and two in the small (small being ones that people would put say pens and pencils in). The single shadows sit in one drawer of the medium size. Some smaller palettes since in another one of these drawers. One of the drawers in the small container is for the NARS duos and the Bare Minerals duos. Another in the small container is for the NYX 10 pans and the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips. Other smaller palettes I have in two canvas bins that sit under the bottom shelf of my desk. The large palettes I have along the shelf of my desk standing up with book ends. 

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

wow...i'm speechless!

have you ever hit pan on any of these??

the palettes look so colorful...gorgeous! 

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

I have probably only hit pan on maybe 4-5 shades max lol sad but true.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Incredible latinadiva!  I have a small collection myself and wish I remembered better what I could combine from different pairs, quads, and palettes.  Do you mix and match, or do you tend to grab one palette and work from that? Which are your favorites?

 

I'll try to get my eye collection photo this weekend! Smiley Happy

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

I always aim to work from just one palette just for speed purposes but it often doesn't happen. A lot of palettes, while they have amazing colors, don't have what I would consider to be a full eye, so I usually have to pull for at least a transition color and highlight color. As far as favorites go, I love the NARS duos and the Lorac Pro, but I feel like I don't grab for them as much because I like them so much I don't want to use them all up (DUMB as that sounds). I think Too Faced and Urban Decay both put out solid products. I've been loving the Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things palette and the UD Vice 2. I also love Bare Minerals loose shadows and MAC pigments. Why I love that they are loose and not pressed...I have no idea. I feel like the application is smoother and softer for some reason.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

And I thought I had too many!  Amazing collection.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

OMG!  I would love to see the rest of your collection.  I bet it is just as amazing.  Thanks so much for sharing.  I have the Bare Minerals red box of like 20 loose shadow and had forgotten about it.  Thanks for reminding me to go get that out again.  Also have the Bare Minerals 7 shadow loose neutrals set an love that a lot too.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

I feel like that is what I loved about doing this! At first I was like eh..this is going to take forever but it really got me to remember what I have that I now want to dip into again.

 

That Bare Minerals neutrals set is one of my favorite neutral sets! Even more so than both Naked palettes.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Holy... ::thud::

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

HAHAHAHA ugh I have to work late today and the laugh I got off this just totally gave me the energy I needed for the remainder of my day!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

@latinadiva - glad that the pics re-energized you! Smiley Happy

 

I am truly impressed with your **cough** hoard **cough** *ahem* collection - you oughta become a makeup artist and recoup some of your costs though!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Amazing!!!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Wow!! How do you pick what to wear?

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

would you mind listing the "big" palettes picture? I'm not familiar with most of them and they all look lovely!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

My collection was once larger but I have a 3 year old who gets into my makeup to draw on the walls. Further proof: the chewed up eyeliner cap. :'( Also, I totally didn't notice how gross my palletes had gotten until I uploaded this picture. My favorites: Urban Decay mascara primer, L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, NYX glitter liner, NYX loose pigment, Buxom cream shadows, NYX eyeshadow, and NARS eyeshadow.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Ive been considering a mascara primer.  Do you like the UD one?  What do you think it does for you?

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

I have the Dior primer and like it a lot.  I find my lashes are a bit longer. Smiley Happy  Plus applying a primer first makes them look better once the mascara is applied.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

The UD one is the only one I've ever tried so I can't compare it to others but it definitely helps with lengthening. It goes on white so it's super obvious if you don't cover it all up. Lately, I've been using it only on the tips of my lashes on the outer half of my eyes because I was having some clumping issues but I still think it was a worthwhile purchase.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Over the last few months I have really bulked up my eye makeup collection, but I have found many more things I need to add to my collection after perusing these pages!

 

Mascaras and eyeliners

 

Shadow sticks, primers, and misc.

 

Single/duo shadows

 

Small and large palettes

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Oh I like that palette at the bottom in the middle.  So nice with all those circles.. what is it?

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

It is an older Stila palette.  I don't remember the name. 

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Eyes

Very pretty.  Love the design!
