Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium, warm yellow undertone, dark brown hair and eyes

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? I have no limited edition eyeshadow, and nothing from the past comes to mind

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? MAC Humid, I miss a good dark green even considering they re-released many new eyeshadows recently

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? MAC Haux, I can go through this shade like crazy! I love a slightly purple neutral.

Haux is one of my all time favorite eyeshadows and I would be furious if MAC ever discontinued it. It’s perfect. Humid was good too. Awesome picks. 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, s&p hair

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? At the moment, ColourPop Fame Palette is the only one that comes to mind.

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? The original Urban Decay Naked palette. I never bought it, but now I kind of wish I had it.

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? A long time ago in a galaxy far away I hit pan on Urban Decay Nooner from Naked3 palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale-yellow, blue eyes, dark hair

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? I still have my pan of Jealousy Wakes that my cousin got me! I don’t think I use it much, but it is lovely and fun to have. Otherwise, in my current collection/rotation I don’t think I have anything that would be so LE it would be irreplaceable. I would need to find a dupe to Cyborg in ABH Sultry, but I don’t think that would be too hard.

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? MAC Moth Brown, just because it was unique and very pretty

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? UD Sin in the old, old Ammo palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes).

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? MAC Stylishly Merry from Holiday 2018(?). Also, UD Dragon in Vice 3, Prank and Junkie in Urban Spectrum, plus MAC Jealousy Wakes and the green in Chanel Empriente du Desert quad. Too many great ones!

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? UD ought to release Dragon, Junkie and Prank as permanent singles!

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? MAC Orb. I breeze through pans of that as my HG browbone shade!

Nancy, Orb was one of the first 2 MAC shadows I ever bought (Quarry was the other) but I hardly use it. I came to realize I like similar shades but with a bit of a sheen to them. I do need to try to use it more so I can “back to MAC” it.

Your skin tone/coloring:
-Medium tan, yellow undertones
What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow – Chanel Tisse Venitien quad
What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released?
– I think Mac rich core seems to be discontinued and should really come back.
What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? First, last and only so far- Mac Twinks!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? MAC Grand Entrance (a Starflash in the most beautiful champagne shade from a LOOOONG time ago) or Lise Watier Sortilege (a sludgey greenish bronze/veridigris shade)
What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? MAC Moth Brown or Henna (I think that’s what it was called)
What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? Don’t laugh….in recent years, I’ve not hit pan on a single one though I am coming close with the lightest shade in Chanel’s Tisse Rivoli quad.

Both MAC Grand Entrance and Moth Brown are beautiful shades Mariella, and I can see why you would use them so much. Really versatile shades.

I don’t own Moth Brown but, man oh man, I would love the chance to get it, hence my choice of it. Grand Entrance is really lovely. That whole “Starflash” finish/formula was so nice and I wish they’d bring the whole shebang back again.

Your skin tone/coloring: light with muted undertones, medium brown hair and hazel-green eyes

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? It isn’t even great quality but I love UD Crystal from BoS4. It’s a light silver with a slight blue undertone and a gorgeous finish. It’s super crumbly and not the most pigmented but I’ve almost used it up over the years.

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? Crystal as a single and the pinker old Deluxe version of UD Scratch.

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? A mauve brown or taupe for sure. Anastasia Stone maybe?

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? I don’t pay attention to whether make up is permanent or limited edition. I think the only LE I have is ABH Jackie Aina so it’s my favorite by default.

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? There aren’t any.

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? I bought a Chanel quad in the mid oughts,the name of which escapes me, and I finished three of the four pans. There was a metallic gold, a matte brown, a brick color, and a metallic black. I never used the black and it probably took ten years to finish the other three. I think it was in 2015. I also finished a ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in a medium brown shade and Nyx shadow in Dance the Tides, again in 2015.

Your skin tone/colouring? Cool light.
What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? Mac Blue Absinthe.
What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? Mac Blue Absinthe.

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? Stila Dune single, see below
What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? Stila Dune is the only single I have panned or finished in the last 10 years. I used it to set eye primer.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? Urban Decay Junkie

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? The MUFE Artist Shadows, and I’d like to see UD Junkie return as a permanent single.

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? A couple weeks ago, I hit pan on a single of ABH Love Letter, which I use exclusively for my eyebrows.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? Dior’s Bonne Etoile

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? Tom Ford’s Emerald Lust

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? Lorac’s Amber and Rose Gold – and I have bought a back up palette. Another is the beautiful silvery blue shade in Guerlain’s Les Gris.

Whoo-hoo! Bonne Etoile is so magical, isn’t it? And did you see that two people (Nancy and Stephanie) mentioned Empreinte du Desert? I feel such a flash of happiness when I see these names mentioned and recall just how fabulous the products themselves are.

Okay, these are hard questions for me not only because my collection has changed so much, but also because I have several favorite eyeshadows that are different colors or finishes.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? Cyborg and Rose Gold from ABH Sultry, Jubilee and Aqueous from ND Metropolis.

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? The original UD Electric palette, same formula colors, everything.

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? I don’t think I’ve ever panned an eyeshadow, I’m ashamed to say. But I’m working on it.

Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NC 20
What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? The MAC single from their Mirage Noir summer collection called Sun, Tan and Repeat. It’s one of those blue brown type shades that I’m a sucker for. This one is a brownish green with a purple flip. Have nothing like it!

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released?
I really don’t have many larger LE palettes or any discontinue eyeshadow that I’m just dying for it to be rereleased. I usually just buy what’s out there and move on. Usually but.. There was this holiday palette from Wet n Wild that my daughter and I loved. It was called Night Elf. It was just a collection of silver, taupe, red, black and a blue brown type shade but it was perfect for any glam evening look. In fact can we just go back to that old formula? It was so silky and smooth. Wonderful pigmentation!

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? Wet n Wild Creme Brulee single

I had that same WnW palette, and the platinum shade in that was one of my faves! It was very close to (the very old and years discontinued) Fyrinnae Platinum, which is a dupe I am always chasing after. It was a lovely little palette.

What’s your favorite limited edition eyeshadow? Maybe Pat McGrath – Deep Space (though it’s a tough choice! PMG Interstellar, Ritualistic, and Astral Rose Orchid all come to mind)

What eyeshadow do you wish would be re-released? Make Up For Ever I550 Olive Gray.

What was the last eyeshadow you hit pan on (or finished)? It may have been Colour Pop Super Shock Shadow – Bill, or Wattles. There aren’t too many. Others I have panned are: Urban Decay – Laced, Foxy, and YDK; MAC – All that Glitters, Espresso, Brun.

1. Skin tone: Light; neutral

2. Fav LE: bareMinerals Aurora Lights; it’s a cool-toned palette from holiday 2018 with purple, blue, and teal. I love BM’s formula but their palette have all been neutrals since.

3. Want re-released: Chanel’s Empreinte du Desert…I’m actually more disappointed that the rest of their quad range doesn’t have the same formula/finish.

4. I’ve never hit pan! I want to because I feel like I would feel accomplished but at the same time, my shadows are precious to me!
