If you don't already know, eyeshadows are my weakness. I am well aware that my current eyeshadow collection will last me a lifetime but I can't keep myself from adding more - I did slow down lately! Naturally I go through phases of reaching for certain colors. These days I am absolutely in love with the following ones. Yes, these are all definitely "I will repurchase as long as X brand continues to make them" type of eyeshadows.
Twinks is my newest MAC eyeshadow and had been on my wish list for a really long time. I don't know why I waited so long to check it off my list but I'm glad I finally did. It's a deep brown with hint of red and plum. I usually use it on my crease with a neutral/nude lid. It's definitely one of those colors that would look beautiful with any eye color.
Chanel Taupe Grise
Taupe Grise was my first Chanel eyeshadow ever and what a great decision for a first Chanel eyeshadow! I would like to say it's taupe as its name suggests but it's not quite. It's more of a brownish mauve. I absolutely love using it in sultry smokey eye looks. I also find that it's versatile and can be worn in daytime looks if carefully applied.
MAC All That Glitters
One of the few MAC products I *stole* from my sister, she did say she didn't want them anymore. Unbelievably (and lucky for me!) All That Glitters was one of them. I would describe it as a shimmery peach with gold glitter. I think it pairs beautifully with MAC Twinks - I wear them together quite a bit.
Inglot DS #467
I use 467 nearly everyday because it's just the perfect all over the lid color for me. It's not everyone's cup of tea as it is not matte in fact it is shimmery - both in pan and when applied. Like all Inglot eyeshadows, this one is buttery smooth and applies like a dream. I love how Inglot eyeshadows are so easy to pack on to achieve desired intensity.
Stila Diamond Lil
It was too late when I found out MAC released a limited edition eye shadow named Diamond & Smokes. While hopelessly looking for its swatches, I came across comparison swatches. If it weren't for the captions, I would have never been able to tell they are two different colors. So I immediately ran to Sephora to pick up this beauty! It's a shimmery taupe-grey. Diamond Lil makes a great color for grey smokey looks, a nighttime favorite for sure!
