On The Hunt For Pink October

I have been totally obsessed with obtaining Pink eye shadow (e/s) for the last few months.  In the past, I have poo-pooed the thought of any WOC (women of color) using pink eye shadow on the lid because I felt like it did not work.

You are probably thinking “when did this change of heart occur with Pink e/s?” The Heatherette for MAC! The Heatherette Trio 2 included a light pink, a grape purple and midtone pink.  I got the Trio #1 instead because I love any shade of teal. But then, I noticed many Heatherette Trio #2 WOC FOTDs on Specktra.

During the early part of the summer, I realized  that I needed to have the Heatherette trio #2 in my collection.  I searched high and low for the Trio, but I could not find it, so I was on the hunt for mid-tone pinks.

To date I have:

  • Urban Decay Hot Pants – Smooth and wonderful.
  • MAC Sunset B – The right shade, lustre-like (which is not good), but definitely works with some paint pots and NYX jumbo eye pencils
  • NYX Dolly Pink – too much fall out, seems to work well with NYX jumbo eye pencils
  • Pink Too Faced Shadows – Wonderful and smooth, the color payoff is strong.  Definite must haves! Check out Swatch Gallery for images.
  • Nouba single e/s 51 – Bright Pink shadow is a must have. The texture is smooth and the color payoff is strong as well.  (Sidebar: I have a few of the Nouba products, an Italian cosmetics brand, and I really like the stuff I have.  The price is comparable to MAC, but I have found a website that offers discount prices on the brand)
  • Bourjois Shimmering Shine Eye Shadow in Rose Electron – I have only swatched it on my hand and the liquid eye shadow is quite brilliant and I cannot wait to wear it
  • Korres Pink e/s – Looks like a soft silvery pink on me.
  • Pop Eye Cakes in Bright Pink – The texture and color payoff are fine, but I think with a good eye shadow base, the pinks will sing. 🙂

MAC DressCamp

Hey MAC Lovers,

Did you get any or all of the DressCamp collection? To be honest, I am totally surprised at how quickly this collection sold out. I did get a chance to order the Face Palette because I am totally in love with the design of the packaging.

DressCamp from MAC Cosmetics

Since the collection will be in a couple of American stores (I believe 1 store in San Francisco and 1 store in NY Soho), will you order from the stores or pray that MAC online will restock as soon as possible? I read that some items have been seen on eBay for double and triple the original price.

Well, if you were fortunate enough to get something from DressCamp, have fun!
