    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? I bought 2 MAC shades at the same time, Omega and Saddle. I use them to fill in my brows :)

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? I’m planning on buying a backup on Typographic. I use that shade almost everyday!!!!! :)

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Saddle. I tried to depot it before I really knew how, and I lost months worth of shadow :( Also because I use it (and Omega) to fill in my brows everyday ;)

    • Oh… I LOVE Omega. (Just had to share) It’s a great color.

      • DreamingofNYC

        What do you use Omega for? It was recommended to me when I first started buying MAC and I have never been able to find a use for it… thanks!

        • DreamingofNYC –

          Omega reminds me of a 60′s sci-fi futuristic color… I think that’s why I like it. It’s not really “pretty” to me, just really cool. It’s SO neutral that it’s one of those colors that changes depending on what you put it with.

          Using Omega as a base: My favorite combos are Copperplate (which makes Omega look yellow-ish) or Brown Script (brings out it’s green tones). Cork, Saddle, Texture and Espresso are also good pairings. At this VERY moment I’m thinking that Smut might be REALLY pretty with it (though I haven’t tried that yet)! LOL!

          Using Omega as a crease color: I like it with Blanc Type (almost golden tones) but I LIKE matte textures A LOT (and tend to favor the dramatic)! You can also use it as a crease color with shades like Shroom, Mylar or Brule to add depth and dimension to those colors (think a “quick and easy” neutral eye).

          It’s one of my favorite neutrals… But it’s a cooler neutral. Personally speaking, I favor cool neutrals over warmer ones, but they can be harder to work with. It’s always best to have a balance off cool/warm in your arsenal :)

        • Shannon

          I use both Omega and Saddle for my eyebrows. I swipe Omega then Saddle then Omega and I get the perfect eyebrow shade for me :)

    • Alabee

      Mmm, omega for me as well. It’s the perfect color for my brows.

    • Alabee

      I use omega for my brows as well. :)

  2. Melissa

    The first eyeshadow I bought when I really got into higher end makeup was Urban Decay’s Sin.

    I don’t think I have backups of any specific eyeshadow, but I do always have atleast 4 different purple shadows at any given time!

    The shadow I’ve hit pan on is…..maybe one of my covergirl palettes? I’m not sure =P

  3. Alexis

    The first eye shadow I ever bought?
    Can’t remember – had to be over 20yrs ago (wow, I’m old) and it was either Maybelline or Wet n’Wild.

    Backups or any e/s?
    Nope

    Hit the pan of:
    MAC Espresso just because it’s my eyebrow shade.

  4. jamie

    first brand i ever bought was GC…the single shadows, in gold.

    I dont really have any back ups…but i do have a huge veriety of different shades and brands of golds and bronzes.

    I have hit pan on Urban Decay HONEY and MAC Shroom.

  5. I dont remember the first drugstore eyeshadow i bought but it was something from covergirl.
    My first department store eyeshadow was MAC juxt.
    I don’t buy back ups.
    I hit the pan on Juxt as well. LOL

  6. Avatar of Amber Amber

    The first eyeshadow I bought – hmmm, it was def by Maybelline, I remember it being a mid tone taupe-brown shade but i can’t remember the shade name or collection.
    I don’t have any back-ups…yet! I am extremely tempted to buy another Chanel Kaska Beige quad because it is simply divine.
    I have hit pan on the light pinky-champagne shade in the Benefit Big Gorgeous Eyes kit. That’s the only one, ever!

  7. The first eyeshadow that i remember buying was a little 3 stack or powdered eyeshadows in orange or my aunts wedding when i was 11 or 12 lol
    I have 2 of MACs Crystal{both open} although im not to sure why cause i dont particularly love that colour :/, the only time i will buy a backup is if the particular colour is one i love or it is going to be discontinued.
    Currently i have hit Pan on MAC Stars and Rockets,Silver Ring,Sable,Crystal,All That Glitters.

    xoxo Susie

  8. HC

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? MAC Satin Taupe!

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? MAC Femme-Fi (it’s LE, I have to!!)

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? None……….hahaha :(

  9. Ooo! Good one (as I thought about this I started to laugh).

    First Eyeshadow: I was 15 years old. My best girl friend and I went to the five and dime down the street from my house and I bought a duo by Wet n Wild (that I naturally hid from my parents). One shadow was baby blue and one was pink. She showed me “how you correctly apply eyeshadow” by putting the blue all over the lid, and the pink all over the brow bone (two horizontal stripes). Hehehe! Sigh…

    Backups: Lots of LE shades – I have backups of all the mineralize shadows from Style Black, that REALLY PRETTY brown from the Honey-whatsits collection last year (I don’t want to get up and look… Or think.) LOL! A few others but… Again… I’d have to get up and I’m about to watch Melrose Place! Haha :)

    Hit the pan: I think the first to go is always Silver Ring (it’s one of the only ones that I use on myself, that’s probably why). I recently bought replacements for many of my MAC shadows so, right now, my palettes look pretty and new! :)

  10. Avatar of Tabi Tabi

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought?

    MAC Nanogold (as part of the N collection) and Urban Decay Smog, so I’m a relatively recent starter, but boy am I an addict now! ;)

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of?

    MAC Grand Entrance. I love this one so much and wanted an extra in case I run out before it’s released again!

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on?

    MAC: Vanilla eyeshadow (highlighter for me), All That Glitters, Grand Entrance, Nanogold, and Bronze.

    I wore a lot of neutrals for a long time (long enough to hit pan on these), but I wear a lot of bright colors now, due in no small part to your beautiful looks, Christine! =)

  11. ilona

    first eyeshadow i bought: nylon
    eyeshadow i have backups of: grand enterance and femme-fi
    eyeshadow i hit pan on: a bunch!!

  12. Bailey

    First eyeshadow I bought? MAC “Woodwinked” :)
    Replacements? None
    Eyeshadow I hit pan on? Hasn’t happened yet, but it’ll probably be MAC “Filament” (:

  13. Diligent Shopper

    First E/S.
    My first eye shadow was a $2 palette I bought at Daiso (Japanese toonie store). The pigmentation was terrible so I’ve never bought any Daiso makeup ever since. Probably because of this terrible experience, I tend to stay away from drug store makeup too now.

    E/S backup.
    I don’t have any backup eye shadow. Mainly because I’m not that into limited edition makeup so there’s no need to buy backup. Even if I do fall in love with a limited edition item, I don’t mind searching around to find a dupe because I prefer trying new stuff.

    E/S hit pan.
    I have not had an eye shadow that hit pan. It takes forever for me to finish up an eye shadow because I have very small lid space and I basically only apply e/s close to my eye line and never pass my crease.

    • LOL My mom bought some makeup from Daiso too. When I swatched them from my Mom’s bathroom, they seemed pigmented to me!

      Not that I would buy drugstore eyeshadows ever.

  14. Abril

    First Eye Shadow I bought: MAC Amber Lights.
    Back-ups: None! I have too many eyeshadows! I could never finish them all!

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? MAC Modest Tone from the N Collection

    3) What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? White Frost, Urban Decay Last Call

  25. The first higher end eyeshadow I purchased was MAC Shady Lady. The dark purple was there to match with an eggplant coloured dress.

    I don’t currently have any back up shadows right now, though I’m considering picking up a second Bough Grey, because I love it that much.

    I’ve hit pan on Satin Taupe and Naked Lunch. I use Naked Lunch for a daytime look, and Satin Taupe is part of my normal smoky eyes look, which I am sometimes required to wear once a week for work.

  26. What was the first eyeshadow you bought? cork,wedge and blanc type
    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? no backups
    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? none yet. But my guess will be cork as the first.

    I remember that I used my mothers stuff at first… and the first high end eyeshadow I owned was a present from her and it was MAC´s Vex (which I choose from all MAC eyeshadows)
    2. I don´t have any backups
    3. MAC Vex

  28. What was the first eyeshadow you bought? Probably some cheap crap when I was 14. :)

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? None. I have over 1000 eyeshadows, I doubt I would ever run out of any of them!

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Nothing ever.

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of?
    None.
    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on?
    Vanilla pigment (I pressed it into a pan) and actually, this is the second time hitting pan for it. Everything else isn’t even close to it but I do remember seeing an obvious dent on Ricepaper.

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? Flip and Violet Trance, both by MAC… unintentional though. I generally don’t by backups of anything.
    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Mulch, Carbon, Mylar, all by MAC. There are more but these are among my favourites, and definitely ones that I would repurchase.

  34. Avatar of T Violet tremorviolet

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? The absolutely first eyeshadow I bought was some drugstore brand in a shade that matched my skin exactly so you couldn’t see it at all. I really wanted to wear make-up but had no idea what I was doing and was terrified of color.
    My first high end shadow was Eye Poppin’ and the orange from that colorful MAC collection (I’m spacing on the name). It’s still one of my favorite lime greens.

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? None, I figure there will always be something fun and new out. I need more Femme Fi tho’, I’m gonna stock up if I can find it at a CCO.

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Shroom, Femme Fi, Expensive Pink, Velvet Moss (awesome dark matte green that’s dicontinued :( )

  35. Pam

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? MAC Satin Taupe

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? no back-ups

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? None… except maybe MAC Ricepaper, only because it broke :(

  36. Avatar of Emily Emily

    First eyeshadow bought: Beauty Marked…ironically this is one of the only ones I haven’t been a fan of!
    Backups: I have backups of both Family Silver and Devil-May Care…probably will for Bough Grey too!
    Hit the pan: that would be Family Silver…love it! It’s great by itself or as a highlighter!

    • Beauty Marked is one of those shadows that I always want to throw away. I don’t like it, it doesn’t look very pretty and the texture is BAH!

      Bough Grey is pretty sweet though – I didn’t buy a second one because, well… I don’t know why. Maybe I should? LOL!

  37. Kelly

    The 1st ES I ever bought was some Claires accessories brand in a glittery baby blue color. It had zero pigmentation and was all big chuncks of irridescent glitter. (I was 12 ok!) Lol.
    Backups of MAC ES in Orb. Orb is also the color I have hit pan on. I use it almost daily as a browbone highlight.

  38. Katie

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? Mambo by Stila (blue-ish purple and sparkly…way inappropriate for a 14 year old, but I loved it!)

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? I have 2 Chanel quads in Divines Mattes and 2 Chanel Professional Eyeliner Trios in Les 3 Lignes..other than that I count on my huge collection for dupes!

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Stila’s Cloud, Chanel’s Slate and Gold, MAC Vex

  39. Dianna

    First Eyeshadow: Carbon (with an angled brush, used it as eyeliner throughout high school)

    Backups: None

    Hit Pan: Nothing yet!

  40. What was the first eyeshadow you bought?
    I can’t remember the very first e/s I bought but the first high-end e/s I bought were MAC’s Ricepaper and Cranberry.

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of?
    None. I have some e/s in the Zoeva Metallic Stone palette that could be dupes of Mulch, Goldmine and a few others. Does that count as backup? ;-)

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on?
    Unspoiled by Artistry, that was a couple of months ago and I already have a new one in use. Other than that, none.

  41. Meesh

  43. Amanda

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? My friend brought me to a MAC store for the first time and I (think these are the ones, it was about 5 years ago!) bought sable, swish, woodwinked, and i think nocturnelle.
    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? i just bought a new Swish and Star Violet since they are just about used up.
    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Sable, Nocturnelle, Tempting, Woodwinked, Retrospeck, Swish, Star Violet..gosh that sounds like a lot. I’ve had these ones for about 5 years or so and up until recently (when my makeup addiction truly kicked in and i’ve bought a lot more eyeshadows!) they were the only eyeshadows i used on a daily basis!

  44. daphne

    First eyeshadow EVER? Couldn’t tell you for the life of me. But my first eyeshadow since I really started getting into makeup (first non-drugstore brand) was MAC’s Shimmermoss.

    The only eyeshadow I have backups of is Femme-fi. It’s also the only one on which I’ve hit pan. I’d say I’m over 3/4 finished with my first one and thanks to my dear mom, I have three backups.

  45. Sally

    First Eyeshadow I ever bought: The farthest back I can remember, it was a Covergirl Quad, I think it was called Iced Grape or something like that. First MAC shadows: Tempting, Humid, and Amber Lights all at once (I had already discovered their lip products, but hadn’t forayed into to the eyeshadows yet!)

    What eyeshadow do I have backups of: Idol Eyes by accident

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on: There’s a lot…Tempting, Shale, Motif, Hush, Paradisco, Embark, Satin Taupe, and my beloved Goldbit (with one little chunk left still in the pot)

  46. Avatar of Krista HebrideanSprite

    Def. a Clinique one, I think it may have been a purple duo. I don’t have back-ups of any of my e/s and I’ve only hit pan on really old crappy shadows from when I was a child so they don’t really count! E/s is my addiction so I have a ton of colours and thus takes me awhile to go through one.

  47. Hannah

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? Hmmmm my covergirl Country wood quad.
    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? Chopper by Urban Decay
    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Smog by urban decay

  49. Avatar of Jo Jo

    The first eye shadow I ever bought?
    Don’t know! Probably collection 2000 or something. For higher end make up it was the Benefit smokin’ eyes kit ( a present to myself for getting into uni)

    Backups or any e/s?
    No, I just have a nice range of very similar highlighters!

    Hit the pan of:
    The highlight shade of the Benefit palette which is why I am now looking or all similar highlight colours

  50. Ryan

    First es? Cant remember but my first mac shadow was espresso.

    Backups? Right now I have backups for vanilla, carbon, and blanctype. Those are some of the fastest ones I go through.

    Hit the pan? lol Im not sure why it takes people so long to finish a shadow because I go through them fast. I have hit the pan of probably over 30 mac eyeshadows and have completely finished maybe about 15.

  51. Natasha M.

  53. Aramis

    The first eye shadow I ever bought?
    hmm either one of the fafi quads or nylon

    Backups or any e/s?
    None since it would take me forever and more to finish one.

    Hit the pan of:
    nylon i remember when i’d wear it all over my eye with a color in the crease or outer v.sigh hahaha hs lol

    Hit Pan: Shroom, Femme-Fi and Naked Lunch. Saddle will be the next to go.

  56. Leenie

    Hit pan on Dazzlelight.

  62. kaprice

    first eyeshadow: prolly some drugstore brand, but my first high end one was a black sparkly one from Smashbox in my attempt to make a smokey eye. my first MAC was Amber Lights and Cranberry at the same time.

    I don’t back up eyeshadows, i just buy more when i run out.

    I hit pan on a few: bronze, shroom, woodwinked,mulch, and my all time favorite TEMPTING. makes my brown eyes sparkle! LOVE IT

  63. Katherine

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? Mac Trax and Naked Lunch
    What eyeshadow do you have backups of? Grand Entrance, Stila Kitten
    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on? Naked Lunch

  64. First eyeshadow purchased: I *THINK* it was called Cloud (by Stila)…man I should really get someone to confirm and see if it’s still available. It was such a pretty shimmery taupe (better for me than Satin Taupe, as I’m quite pale).

    Backups: MAC Modelette (from Warm & Cozy)

    Hit pan: think I hit it on the aforementioned Stila shade, but since that’s long gone, nothing yet. It’ll most likely be MAC’s Brule, since I kind of automatically start swiping it across my eyes in the morning before I decide what to do with my face.

  65. Anna

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought?: I’m pretty sure it was a Maybelline trio when I was about 14. My first high end eyeshadow was Black Tied when I was 16 though.

  71. chelsea

    my first eyeshadow that i can really remember is mac black tied, I have backup’s of mac rated r, and i’ve recently took a lot of back to macs but the most recent pan hitting is gesso

  72. cmferrets

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought? mac in 2002 it was black tied, , scene, cranberry, beauty marked, humid,club, satin taupe, sable,mulch, bronze,mystery, amber lights, swish, jest, constrast, tilt, crystal,creme de violet, shale, vex. it seems like alot, but thats all from the perm line. then in dec 2008 i recently got back into mac and pretty much just been buying from their LE collections. i dont really buy much from the perm line anymore, except some, but i think i got some pretty basic colors back in 2002 – right ? the only ones i remember buying and using alot was clinigue ash violets and grey on grey e.s duos. besides getting revlon, maybelline or loreal at the drugstore when i was about 14 yrs old with my allowance bc they were affordable back then.

    The first color I bought was MAC Motif and Honey Lust.

    I haven’t bought any back-ups; I have so many eyeshadows to get around to using!

    I’ve hit pan on my blenders and highlighters: MAC Hey (from Fafi), Era, and Honey Lust. I’ll be hitting the pan soon with my Club and Humid. Club creates the most perfect smudgy, smokey eye!

      I lied! The first color I ever ever bought was MAC Aquadisiac….it was my lone color for a very very long time that’s why I forgot about it!

  77. Solange

    First Eyeshadow: Contrast, 10 years later I still LOVE it.

    Backup: I don´t have backups.

    Hit Pan: Patina, I use it almost every day. I hit pan after just two months!

  78. Kit

    The first good eyeshadow I bought was MAC’s Trax. It looked really bad on me (like I was punched in the face by a shimmer monster) so I gave it to my friend. xD
    I haven’t bought backups for anything yet, surprisingly.
    I’ve also hit pan on the little whitest-white colour in the 88 Eyeshadow Palette from Coastal Scents… I used it as a highlight for a long time. ^^

    1.) The first eyeshadow I vividly remember buying was a very light champagne frost from Clinique. They don’t make it anymore, or I would give the shade name! That was many moons ago, back when I was in high school…wow, maybe 1993? It looked kind of like Daybreak, but not exactly. It was very light and very shimmery, and I absolutely loved wearing it every day.

    2.) The only shadows I have backups for are some Urban Decay shades that are duplicated in the palettes I’ve bought. I know I will probably never run out of any shadow (except the one I’m naming below), because I have so many different ones at this point! Eye shadows are my favorite makeup item to buy.

    3.) I have only hit pan on one shadow I currently own, and it’s Iceland from Ulta. It’s a super-shimmery white shade that I use as a browbone highlighter, and I also use it around my tear duct to make the dark shadow pop. I will eventually run out of that, but all my other shadows are very lightly dented!

  80. First eyeshadow: My first high end eyeshadow was the Big, Beautiful Eyes kit from Benefit. My first MAC was Hepcat.. don’t know why I went with such a bright color! I never wear it lol.
    Backups: None. There’s always something new to try!
    Hit pan on: From my Urban Decay Ammo palette I’ve finished Sin, hit pan on Smog, Maui Wowie, Chopper, and Grifter. Also MAC’s Da Bling, Bold and Brazen, and Yogurt.

  83. Joanna

    First eyeshadow I ever bought was MAC’s Shroom. It’s my favorite highlighter and I use it almost every single day :)

    What was the first eyeshadow you bought?
    I don’t remember the very first, but the first MAC eyeshadow I ever bought was Trax.

    What eyeshadow do you have backups of?
    I actually don’t think I have backups of anything

    What eyeshadow have you hit pan on?
    I hit pan on my Lacome trio in Nude. Sadly, I think it’s been discontinued for a while now.

  88. 1st eyeshadow I’ve bought: L’Oreal quad in Enchanted Bouquet when I was 13 or 14ish. Higher end stuff was MAC Pink Venis, Swish, Da Bling and a 4th I can’t remember :s

    Backup eyeshadow: Enchanted Bouquet because L’Oreal changed the colours to these cruddy ones with no colour payoff and different shades and still had the nerve to call the “Enchanted Bouquet”! I have backups of 5 or 6 Aromaleigh shadows.

    What shadow have I hit pan on?: The L’Oreal EB quad again, Autumn Leaves. Those were pretty much the only 2 I wore back then everyday so it was easy. Since I’ve gotten hooked to mineral makeup I don’t think I’ve hit pan or put a dent into anything in the last 5 years :)
