First time trying (and testing, of course) out the new Big Bounce Eyeshadows. Since I didn’t receive the products until later in the day, I was only able to wear this look for eight hours before I just had to remove it. I initially tried to sleep in it, but after attempting it for an hour, I couldn’t!
Substitutes: Groundcover = NARS Bali; Bows & Curtseys = MAC Deep Blue Green; Fresh Daisy = Phloof!; Ever Hip = NARS Niagara (slightly pinker)
For eyes, start by applying Spread the Wealth eyeshadow all over the lid and above the crease with the 242. Apply Lucky Green eyeshadow to the lower half of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Groundcover eyeshadow into the crease with the 222, blending slightly above the crease. Take the 239 and apply Bows & Curtseys eyeshadow to the deepest part of the crease and blend to the lid. Highlight the brow bone with a mixture of Fresh Daisy eyeshadow and Trench eyeshadow with the 217. Apply Lucky Green eyeshadow to the lower lash line with the 239, and then finish the water line with Tealo liner. Finish by sweeping lashes with Green is Green mascara.
For cheeks, apply Echo blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 188.
For lips, apply Ever Hip lipstick for a complementing lip.
The collection features six shades of Eyeshadows (each $14.50 for 0.05 oz.) — three are limited edition, while three are available in the permanent range; though, all of the editions in this launch are imprinted with the flower design, while permanent editions will be normal. The six shades include: Aqua (aqua blue), Bows & Curtseys (metallic hunter green), Free to Be (bright true coral), Fresh Daisy (frosty white yellow), Groundcover (mid-tone warm grey), and Lucky Green (frosted mid-tone lime).
Aqua is a bluish aqua with a matte finish. This is a permanent shade but I felt like it was a little less pigmented here than my permanent pan.
Bows & Curtseys is a blackened forest green with bluish shimmer. It looks nearly black when swatched on my arm with the green being hinted at as the color plays with light. When I wore it in a look (albeit with a sheer green base), it seemed to pull out the forest green more. This has a satin finish.
Free to Be is a medium-dark coral-red with a matte finish. This is a permanent shade, but I felt like it was a little less pigmented here than my permanent pan.
Fresh Daisy is a very bright white with only a hint of warmth. It has a frost finish, but it really looks rather metallic. I tried to wear it as a highlighter, but it’s too frosted and stark on me–I imagine it would be more appropriate on someone with a lighter skin tone. It is, however, very pigmented.
Groundcover is a matte, taupe-ish brown gray. It is nicely pigmented but lacks the buttery texture that makes mattes easier to use.
Lucky Green is a bright, chartreuse-shimmered grass green with strong yellow undertones. It has a veluxe pearl finish. This is a permanent shade. It’s one of my favorite colors, because it is so pigmented and soft.
I took an average of each eyeshadow to get actual scores for each characteristic, so while shades like Fresh Daisy and Lucky Green are much better than shades like Aqua and Free to Be, it rounds out to the scores seen here. I'd recommend reading through the individual review for each shade!
