Just three? That’s going to be kind of impossible, since I used four eye products today. They are: Colourpop Just My Luck Palette, Kaja Chocolate Dahlia Trio, UD 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, and Lancôme Definicils Mascara.

Last three, hmmm…
the Balm – What’s for Tea (Iced Tea)
the Balm – Scuba mascara
Benefit Cosmetics – Boi-ing Brightening Concealer (n°3)

I think the Balm is still doing good things with there quality (the “What’s for Tea” series are really nice, but I’m waiting for a sale to purchase the second one, as I think the price still seems a little high).

I just got that same palette. I’ve only used it once and had issues with fallout. I love their matte shadows in particular tho. I have one of their all matte palettes and one of the Nude ones too. Those are both awesome. So maybe my fallout issue was user error. 😉

theBalm sort of snuck up on me. Nothing about them attracts me (until they made those license plate palettes) but I get them in subs. At first I was meh, but the more I used the more I discovered that the things I like…I REALLY like. Now I’m using their eyeshadow primer, I love some of their palettes, one of their blushes is a favorite, and I actually went through an entire pressed powder.

I’ve got Urban Decay Rust all over the lid, little taps of Urban Decay Chains on the outer third of the lid (orange + olive = neutral eye look!) and whatever mini-size mascara I grabbed first. So there’s three!

Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in ‘Lucky’ and UD Naked Ultimate Basics palette.

Milk Makeup Kush mascara, Urban Decay eyeliner in Alkaline, and neutral-pink to burgundy matte shades from Viseart.

I assume brow products don’t count as eye. I always do eyeshadow, eye brows, mascara.

Today’s look was MAC Scene in the crease and MAC Satin Taupe on the lid. Finished off with the Pretty Vulgar Faux Reals Extreme Volume mascara I can’t wait to toss in a couple of days.

Eyeshadow:
Burberry Pale Barley, Burberry Nude (No. 002), and some combination of shadows from the Viseart Cashmere Theory palette to try to round it all out.

If we’re including things like primer and mascara, then add in Glossier mascara and some primer…I think the one from Smashbox if that comes in a silver squeeze tube.

Melt Cosmetics Smoke Sessions, Morning Star highlight, and Lancome Monsiour Big.

I look forward to trying that PMG palette you used for the pic! My sephora has it in stock – according to their website – but it wasn’t out on the floor.

ABH Sultry – feeling sad because the UD Honey is really not for me. LOVE the shimmer shades, but not the mattes….
Natio Golden Natural Shades eyeshadow palette
UD Naked 2.

Charlotte Tilbury eyebrow whatever it’s called in Supermodel.
Mascara, but even though it was yesterday I can’t remember which one I used. (I’m going trough my opened ones to see which ones are still usable, if they smell OK I try them on and then sort in throw or keep and use up piles. I have no idea why I have so many open mascaras.)
Viseart Neutral Matte palette.
Going from last used and backwards.

Smashbox Cover Shot matte eye palette — shades I used are Supermodel ( inner eye) and Werk it ( outer kid) Perception Shayla / Colourpop — shade is Spill the Tea ( middle of lid) and to make those last I used Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow primer.

Tammy Tanuka chimera pigment, ABH Modern Renaissance, Becca x Chrissy highlighter and blush palette. I used more than that on my face, but those were the standouts.

Today: I used 6 products today.
1. theBalm Priming is Everything shadow base.
2. Morphe 35F palette
3. Marc Jacobs Highliner (black)
4. Urban Decay 34/7 eyeliner pencil in Finish
5. My HG game-changer, L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer
6. L’Oreal Telescopic mascara

I used 4 today: Huda Emerald Obsessions (shade: 3-the ice green), UD Midnight Cowboy shadow, UD Electric palette (shade: Revolt), and UD Double Team mascara (shade: Deep End, just the cream mascara end).
