Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

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! Smiley Wink Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

This isn't everything.....the thought of getting all those bare minerals singles & other things out of their hiding place deterred me. This is 90% of what I am working with!

This is shadows only. If we included everything eyes the pile would be much, much scarier! I put my list in a spoiler too to save room!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

i'm coming to live at your house bombie!!!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

You are always welcome Sparkle!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Oh my gosh look at all the pretties! Brb I need to wipe the drool off my keyboard.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Great minds think alike.  I like it! Did you know you can depot the vintage UD shadows and put them in the new build your own palettes?  I did that with all of mine, so much easier to store!  

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Ohhhhhh short stuff!! That would save me so much room! you are the queen of depotting though. I love them and I don't want to hurt them...... Maybe you can pep talk me into trying again!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

the queen of depotting?  omg i need to borrow you!!! i just got a z palette but i'm too scared to use it!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Yes! She is the queen!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

so i tried my hand at depotting yesterday and i "only" hurt 2 out of 10 shadows...of course they were the first 2 and i walked away saying "i can't do this!!" until mr man told me to suck it up and try again!  the other 8 made it out unwounded!!!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

This is exactly why I practiced my first deporting episode on all of my drugstore shadows....Some of them were not pretty when they came out! but I did it!

 

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

IT'S LIKE A BEAUTIFUL MOSAIC!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Thanks Malday! Welcome to 2.0 lol

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

We could open a Sephora Store together.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

We could! I'd love to go into the beauty biz with you Nikki! Smiley Happy

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Love your collection! I need to take a pic like that of mine next time I'm home!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

I finished my palettes; I only have a few.  Now I'm going on to all my BE and Meow Cosmetics singles.  Those will take me until all the snow melts, which for those of you who don't know will probably be sometime in July.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Great job Titian! Smiley Happy on to the singles!!!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

I saw in the new Ulta flyer that BE has released 7 Ways to Bare, Vol. 2.  Unfortunately, Ulta is the sole carrier of this palette, but that won't stop me.  I have the first one, and I don't want it to be lonely.  Smiley Wink

 

I still haven't purchase the new KVD palette either.  I guess I'm sorta waiting for the next sale.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Here is my list:

 

i did naked basics last week: next up Ladybird

 

Spoiler
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
Spoiler

Spoiler
#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

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Thank you for doing that GHKim! I haven't yet learned how to do links that way! You are so thoughtful! 

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!!! Smiley Wink 

I'll use my Tarte Coral Crush this week.  

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

It's ok to buy them as long as you show them love! Xoxo
