Top 10 of 2012: Eyeshadows

Top 10 of 2012: Eyeshadows

These are my top ten powder eyeshadows (I say that, because there were a few cream eyeshadows I thought about including, but there were so many powder ones I wanted to include, too!). I’m not going to do a breakout for cream eyeshadows specifically, but know that Milani’s Shadow Eyez and Maybelline Color Tattoos would be taking honors on that list! There were numerous L’Oreal Infallible and Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense shades to choose from, too, so I went with my personal shade favorites. :)

What was your favorite single eyeshadow from 2012?

5 Ocean-Inspired Eyeshadows

When I think of the ocean, I think of blue, green, and teal all merged into one. Depending on the depth and clarity of the water, you might a really smoldering blue, maybe something closer to blackened blue, and at other times, a beautiful translucent aqua blue. I could have easily chosen five more shades for this topic, LOL! There were so many amazing shades to choose from.

What color best represents the ocean in your stash?

Illamasqua Burst Eyeshadow

Illamasqua Burst Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blue-green.” It’s a medium-dark that’s just barely been kissed by tones of teal. It’s more blue than it is teal or green, but it’s not just blue. Tarina Tarantino Ozma is a bit similar in color, but it has a frosted finish, so it ends up looking different. MAC Cool Heat is a little more teal and has a subtle sparkle. Urban Decay Haight is bluer. Inglot #338 is a bit darker.
