These are some of my hauls from the past. I may have posted photos of them, but I thought I will show you some swatches. You can see the product photos here.
GOSH Mono Eyeshadows in 001 Golden Green(left) and 008 Burgundy(right) - swatches
Both the GOSH eyeshadows I picked up at a whim when I saw some of them on half-price at Superdrug. I swatched them in-store and though I have similar shades in my stash, I haven't tried any GOSH products before, let alone the eyeshadows. These 2 shadows have more like a satin finish. While they are not super soft and smooth in texture, they are not dry or chalky either. Their pigmentation is quite OK, and colour pay-off is quite good. Though Burgundy is a tad sheerer.
MAC Big Bounce Shadows in Spread The Wealth(left) and Luxury Touch(right) - swatches
Despite many not-so-stellar reviews on these Big Bounce Shadows from MAC Flighty Collection this past Summer, even Temptalia was disappointed with them, I saw several of these at the CCO in Bicester Village and just felt that I had to get some to try out. While it was not on a huge markdown, I picked these 2.
They are liquid, may be thick liquid, in the jars. While they swatched quite OK, I had problem applying them on the lids.
They didn't apply evenly and when I tried putting on a second layer, my finger would wipe off the first. So I went on to dabbing it on my lids. Still, the colour wouldn't stay long. Then, I gave up. But I dabbed on some powder eyeshadow on top of that 'mess' and WOW! It made the powder eyeshadow POP!
OK, I will speak more on the Big Bounce Shadows in another post and show you the looks I did with it.
Happy Hump Day!
It's Thanksgiving Day tomorrow and I will be busy in the kitchen........... ;)
