When I saw this post from Stash Matters go live, I scrolled straight to the bottom to see if I had been tagged because I just knew for sure it and I were meant to be 🙂 And I was, I really was!! Hehe 🙂 My lovely friend actually reformulated the Lipstick Tag that has been floating around everywhere recently and this is what she came up with! Enjoy 🙂
- Tag 3 bloggers to answer these same questions.
- Those bloggers will TAG 3 more bloggers of their choice with the same questions & rules.
- No tag backs.
1. How many eye shadows do you own?
I probably only own about 10 singles (mostly from subscription boxes) and a handful of trios and quads; it’s the palettes I have an addiction to. But if I were to count each pan as an eyeshadow I’d have to guess and say somewhere around 250 or so.
2. What was your first ever eye shadow?
Do you guys remember Ren from Even Stephens? Yeah, that Disney show with Shia Labeouf before he grew up and became a total douche. Anyways, I was 13ish when the show was popular and I remember Ren always matching her eyeshadow to the rest of her outfits… so one week I skipped buying lunch at school and saved up all my lunch money instead. Behind that apartments we lived in was a Dollar General store that all the kids in the neighborhood would walk to. So I marched my happy ass to the DG when my mom was at work and bought a lilac colored Maybelline single. I think they still sale these too!!!
3. What is your most worn eye shadow?
I use Creme Brulee from Wet n Wild every single day to help blend out rough edges and blending mishaps. I love it sooo much!
4. What is your favorite brand for eye shadows?
Oh I see, the questions get progressively harder as we go… I’m going to have to say Urban Decay. I tend to stick with what I like so there are still many brands that I have never tried anything from (Makeup Geek, Lorac, Colourpop etc. etc.) but out of everything I own, Urban Decay never lets me down.
5. What is your favorite finish?
I prefer shimmer, but if I could only pick one finish to use for the rest of my life it would 100% be matte.
6. What is the last eye shadow you bought?
I picked up the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar a few weeks ago for just $29! Tomorrow (May 31, 2015) will be the last day that you can use the $20 off a single $40 or more beauty item on HSN so if you’re interested check out the Deal Alert I shared [here].
7. How many eye products do you currently have in your bag?
Just one. Normally I always have a Too Faced Better Than Sex (hate that name) deluxe sample mascara rolling around for the days that I forget to apply mascara before leaving the house (read: every day), but I gave it to my son to play with in the car the other day and now I have no clue where it is. So currently all I have is a Urban Decay 24/7 liner in the shade Perversion (aka black).
8. What eye shadows do you use to rock a smokey eye?
Smokey eye looks are my Achilles Heel… no matter how hard I try, I end up looking like my husband beats me. So I only try these looks when I know for sure we will be seen in public together… haha, just kidding. I just can’t do them, okay!!??
9. How do you store your eye shadows?
Currently I have all of my palettes lined up like books on top of my dresser. I like it this way because I can see everything that I have 🙂 I really, really want to come up with some type of DIY shelving that I can slap onto a blank wall and display all my palettes face forward on… I think it would be a really neat background for my YouTube videos 🙂
10. What eye products are you currently lusting over?
I see you have not read the 5 Palettes that are on my Radar post yet… here, let me link it for you 😉 right [here].
