Happy Throwback Thursday! Hope you are having a great day. Throwback Thursday means that I have a chance to pick out one of my old eyeshadows or eyeshadow palettes from my drawers and create something with a palette that is not necessarily popular at the moment (or maybe not even still for sale). You know, among all those new things released, it is nice to get some time to pay attention to the older parts of the collection as well. So this is the palette I picked out for todays Throwback Thursday makeup look.
This is soooo old school Too Faced! The Candy Bars Eye Shadow & Shimmer Palette in the shade “Thin Mints”. I can’t remember how old it is, but it must be close to 10 years by now! It is cute though with its green and blue summer-toned shades. There is just something about green and blue that makes me happy, and that’s probably why I got myself this little palette in the first place.
I mean. This just screams summer to me with these bright fun shades! It is set up as one solid powder with 4 strips of different shades. They are big enough so that it is easy to grab only one shade with the brush.
- Too Faced Candy Bars Eye Shadow & Shimmer Palette – Thin Mints
- MakeupGeek Gel Liner – Immortal
- MakeupGeek Gel Liner – Fame
- Maybelline Lash Temptation Mascara – Black.
- Zoeva Brow Spectrum – Bro90
- House Of Lashes – Boudouir
- Kiko Glamorous Eye Pencil – 411.
The shade selection makes it a bit hard to be creative. One very pale blue that works best for just blending out the edges since it’s not very pigmented, one bright blue, and one slightly darker blue that looks very similar on the eyes, and one bright green. The pigmentation is OK, not great and not bad. You can get a simple summery eyelook with this, but the small amount of shades and lack of dimension limits a bit how much you can do.
Even though this is very old, I found that this is actually still available on Amazon! If anyone should be interested in getting this nostalgic piece, then it is possible still.
