10 Shades for a Rainbow of Color

I thought coming up with a beautiful rainbow of hues might be a fun (and challenging!) theme to work under.  Of course, I took liberties with the concept of rainbow and added a few in-between shades to make a full list of ten.  I would love to see what your top ten shades are, in rainbow-order, so-to-speak! :)

  1. Urban Decay 69 — a bright, medium-dark red with cool undertones
  2. Zoya Amy — a fiery, gold-shimmered orange
  3. Sugarpill Buttercupcake — bright, matte yellow
  4. Illamasqua Fledgling — rich, grassy green with a matte finish
  5. OCC Man by Man — a metallic teal
  6. Urban Decay Radium — a medium blue with shimmer
  7. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a blue-purple with shimmer
  8. Fyrinnae Parental Advisory — a bold, cool-toned purple
  9. Too Faced Lollipop — violet with fuchsia shimmer
  10. Dior Aventure (81) — because life isn’t complete without taupe

Share your favorites…  For bonus points, feel free to share picks for teal, violet, and taupe :)

Dior Pastel Fontanges (234) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Pastel Fontanges (234) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.17 oz.) is another new and limited spring offering from Dior. I wish I could say it was more impressive than Dulcinee, but I was still disappointed.  The palette suffered from poorer color payoff and wear that lasted just over seven and a half hours (for most shades, though the blue was significantly faded by the seventh hour).  Like Dulcinee, the colors tend to look all the same once applied to the lid, so it loses a lot of versatility and usefulness as a result.
