Eyeshadow Haul + Swatches! [Pic Heavy]

4 years ago

Apart from my nailpolish haul (check it out: http://www.luuux.com/health-beauty/collective-nailpolish-haul?blog_id=18019), I also went a little crazy with the eyeshadow purchasing as well haha! Onto the haul!

<strong>Rimmel Londons Glam Eyes Quads in Smokey Purple and Romantic Cool</strong>
So I purchased this from <em>Walmart</em>. I really wanted to give the Rimmel eyeshadows a second try since they repackaged it! I had bought a quad like years ago, and absolutely hated it because the quality was not really what I was expecting, it was super chalky! So these were onsale at Walmart for $3.89 CDN, the price was rolled back. After swatching them and giving it a try on my eye today, I am still disappointed unfortunately. The colors are fairly light and sheer, and on my olive skin tone, it barely shows up, even with primer. Maybe they will work better with a crème shadow base as well, I dont know? So the two quads that I purchased were Smokey Purple and Romantic Cool. Smokey Purple is full of matte like shades, different shades of purple. From the swatches for Smokey Purple, they are okay but not the best. Romantic Cool is a combination of purples and browns (well one brown), I used this quad today, actually color 1. and it was almost nothing on my lid. From the swatches, the only color you could probably see is 2. and 4.. Unfortunately, I dont think Ill be purchasing anymore :(

<strong>Urban Decays Twice Baked</strong>
I purchased from <em>Sephora</em>. Since Urban Decay had reformulated and repackaged their single eyeshadows, many of their older shadows have gone on sale at Sephora. Unfortunately, when I got there, there were only a couple of colors left and none of them really captured me except Twice Baked. I have heard great things about this color and thought it would be a good addition to my collection (even though Ive gotten like 10 different browns)! Originally it would be $22 CDN but they were on sale for $7 CDN so it was definitely a deal for me! From the swatches, its a dark chocolate brown with subtle brown glitter mixed into it! Im hoping to hit up another Sephora and seeing if they have other colors for me to pick up :D

<strong>Essences Palette in Beauty on Tour and Mystic Purple</strong>
I bought these three from Shoppers Drug Mart, exactly where I also bought my Essence nailpolishes as well! The eyeshadow single, Mystic Purple was on sale for $1 CDN and the eyeshadow palette in Beauty on Tour was $5 CDN. I already own an eyeshadow palette from Essence and I liked it so I decided to pick up some more stuff from them! Mystic Purple is supposed to be a holographic eyeshadow, but honestly, I cant see the holographic portion of it. From the swatches, its a really frosty silver purple. Next is the eyeshadow palette in Beauty on Tour. It has a combination of yellows, brown, blues and greens. Its such a cute little thing and I think that is what really got me to get it haha! It even comes with instructions on how to do two different looks. From the swatches, youll notice its super shimmery and frosty. But overall Im happy with it!

So here is everything I got! I`m super happy about everything!!!!
Do you like all the eyeshadows I purchased? Which one was your favourite? Have you tried them before?
