100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Inspired by @Samtian 's new year's resolution and the 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge started by @snoflakefaerie ! I thought it would be fun to do the same thing with eyeshadows!!

 

I have so many eyeshadow shades I never wear!  The 100 days of lip challenge has really encouraged me to branch out! So I'm challenging myself (and whoever else wants to join) to use more of them. I'm going to try to make my way through my whole collection using different shades each day! Share some eye looks or swatches - whatever's easier!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Well friends, I've spent over a week trying to make a new little quad work for me, and just not getting anywhere, primers or no. All the good looks were the same, since only one color of the four is functional-- this new Oryza was an Ipsy add-on. Looks like there's a gorgeous deep plummy purple, nice matte brown, pale shimmery pink, and shimmery mid-tone copper. The only color that is true to pan is the copper, and it takes over any look when used with the others. Those need so much build-up, & the dark plummy purple is kind of a smudgy bruise brown on me. They have a lovely creamy texture to touch, but any intensity I've achieved fades within a few hours-- and the pale pink is so sheer it reads like sheer white shimmer. I have had a couple nice looks from it, but all coppery ones I could have done with other palettes or singles (sigh). Luckily wasn't expensive, and maybe looks better on other skintones. I've swatched the shades but each swatch took building to show. 

Seems like a perfect autumn quadSeems like a perfect autumn quadnot much difference between shadesnot much difference between shadesYou can see I've used it a lot, trying...You can see I've used it a lot, trying...

 

So today I gave up on it for the time being and went back to my safety dance look of taupe/brown lid, rosy crease, and a smidge of shimmer center lid. Really still loving L'oreal's Bambi Eye mascara too.

@heavyhedon It looks gorgeous on you!  I love it. So sorry the pigments didn't all work for you.  

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks @tjffc , I hardly ever have a color I can't make work some way, but...

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

The eyelook in the pics is stunning @heavyhedon 😊 I’m sorry the palette didn’t work out for you. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@idanyd Thank you. I wish the plum shade had worked out!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Lovely! This is giving me fall vibes even though the palette is more summery @Samtian

Pretty mix @Samtian ,  & cool to see the whole palette's ratings at once, thanks for that; it;s been on my wishlist for a while.
