Throwback Thursday Makeuplook with Too Faced Natural Eye

For todays Throwback Thursday look I picked out one of my very old Too Faced palettes. From the time waaaay before they made their famous chocolate bar palettes. Back when the packaging of their 9 pan palettes was cardboard and not tin.

I have a tiny collection of these 9 pan palettes from the old days, and they are well loved. I picked out the Natural Eye because of the georgeous brown and shimmery shades.

Despite this palette being named Natural Eye these looks are not very natural. You can easily create natural looks with it as well, its just not that fun to post.

I am actually quite happy that I used every single color this time too. I know I did it last throwback Sunday, but that was just a quad. And I know I won’t be able to use every single shade in a bigger palette, but I think it’s good to do more than one look just to get the most out of it.

I was pleasantly surprised with this palette. I know I liked it from before, but I actually think it is close to 3 years since I used it on my eyes. I know that’s past expiring date, but since I disinfect my makeup I pay more attention to the quality of the product itself and not the shelf life. If it looks good, performs good, smells the same and I don’t see any texture differences I will keep it. This one performs just like I remember, and this particular 9 pan palette is actually close to the Too Faced Chocolate Bar in formula.

Overall it was fun to re-experience this palette and remember how much I used to love it. Because the shadows are beautiful for sure.

Do you still have this old gem in your collection?

Throwback Thursday Makeup Look with Estée Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quad “Berry Quartz”!

It is Throwback Thursday and time to pull one of my old goodies out of my drawers and enjoy their company a bit.

If you read my Makeup Colleciton 2018 – Small Eyeshadow Palettes blog-post you have already seen this recently. I have three of these Estée Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quads in different shades and I used to use them quite frequently some years ago, but lately they have been just hanging in my drawers.

I think my preference for eyeshadows have changed since I played with these last time, because I remember I used to think they were quite good, but today I found them a bit too sheer. They do blend very effortlessly though, and I guess for a subtle daylook they work excellent and they are quite user-friendly. I just prefer shadows with strong pigmentation these days. Especially when making a look I want to post.

Since the shadows are great for simple and classic daytime makeup looks I found it a bit boring in the end for a look I wanted to publish on my blog. So I decided to add a little bit of glam with one of my new Colourpop Supernova Eyeshadows. I have to try out new stuff too after all!

IMG_20180131_203131_042.jpg

  • Estée Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quad “Berry Quartz” – All shades.
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil – Zero.
  • Colourpop Supernova Eyeshadow – UF-Woah.
  • MakeupGeek Gel Liner – Poinson.
  • Kiko Smart Eye Pencil – 802.
  • L’Oreal Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll Mascara – Black.
  • Zoeva Brow Spectrum – Bro60.
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24h – Black.
  • Ardell Fauxmink Lashes – 810.

I guess I would be happy to use this for everyday looks, where I just want to slap on something fool-proof and easy in the morning. For that cause this palette work just fine, but if you like heavy pigment they just don’t cut it. The shadows are not bad in quality they are just meant for more simple and classic makeup rather than boosting your creativity and challenging your skills with out-of-this world pigmentation.

For everyday use this is a nice little quad.

Throwback Thursday Look with Urban Decay The Black Palette!

I have my drawers full off palettes that don’t get enough attention because I am constantly testing out and reviewing new ones. So I wanted to push myself to pick out some old ones from the collection from time to time, so I decided to make a Throwback Thursday makeuplook series!

Nothing too fancy though. I just want to showcase some of my older palettes and make a look or two with them.

So to start off this blogpost-series I pulled out my old Urban Decay The Black palette. This was limited edition many years ago back in the day when MAC single pan shadows was the most featured eyeshadows in the beauty community. And the Naked palettes didn’t exist yet!

As you can tell form the packaging it has been through some wear. It was the second Urban Decay palette I ever purchased and my makeup collection was pretty small back than and contained mostly NYX products and mineral makeup.

All shades have a black base, so they all appear almost black on the eyes with a nice shift of gold, purple, green or blue. This used to be one of my favorite palettes to do a dark smoky eye look for a party. Now I don’t go to parties anymore , but I can still enjoy a dark smoky eye!

  • Urban Decay The Black Palette – Cobra, Barracuda, Black Dog.
  • Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow – Hear me Out, Conundrum.
  • Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Pencil – Ultra Black.
  • Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown.
  • Lancôme Volume-à-Porter Mascara.
  • House of Lashes – Knockout.

It was really fun pulling this old friend out of the collection again. I am exciting to continue this and rediscover some more old favorites. I don’t think I will be able to do a throwback Thursday post every week, I think some of the palettes I would like to create more than one look with and it takes a lot of time doing the makeup, taking pictures and editing before posting. I just think now and then I will have a post ready for Thursdays, so it will be a un-regular schedule but I can definitely promise that I will make more of these posts. There is just something nostalgic and nice about playing around with makeup you forgot you had.

Hope you enjoyed this, and thank you for reading!

XOXO
