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

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. Smiley Tongue 

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Any suggestions on what to use next?

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

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

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

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. 

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

is that the one you're on the hunt for 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.




Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

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.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

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

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

True that Nikki! 

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Can I come shopping at your house?

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

Yes Smiley Happy I do want to TSB some of it, like the Cargo palette, but it's older so Idk if anyone will want it.



Also, my last few sets are loose pigments from Shiro and Geek Cosmetics, which are vegan and 100% Cruelty Free down the supply line.


I haven't gotten my orders yet, but they look gorgeous, and have great ratings from Phyrra, etc. They have a lot of stuff, so it might be another great option for you Plant <3

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

I am getting my shiro order on Tuesday Smiley Happy

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0

I have a Shiro order coming soon too :-)

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0



I just starting following them on FB, since they do monthly colors.


And Geek Chic, I followed because I want those cute collector's tins!

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0



I got my shipping notification, so mine should be in soon too.


Geek Chic got hit by snow, so it'll be longer for those Smiley Sad
