1) Tippy Taupe
A cool taupe with a lavender undertone when applied
Very pale beigey pink. Great as a base shadow.
Highly pigmented royal purple.
Highly pigmented jewel blue.
I've been on the hunt for a clean line of eye shadows that can replace my dirtier (but amazingly effective) ones. My favorites have always been Lancome and Dior and to this day, I haven't been able to switch them out for a toxin free formula. Because my eyelids are smaller and slightly hooded, eye shadows don't seem to wanna stick around. By midday- even when I'm wearing a long lasting formula- the shadows have creased and migrated...it ain't cute.
Honeybee Garden's is my first attempt at a cleaner eye shadow and I'm pretty impressed by their shade selection and pigmentation. Though they don't stay put for long either, I don't feel guilty re-applying when I need to, since the ingredients are so safe.
I love the colors. They're all rich and beautiful. I used a slight wash of Tippy Taupe and Dragonfly and then lined the lash line with Pacific. Very subtle, but that's how I like it. I belong to the school of, "no makeup/makeup" look.
PS- don't you just love my "Shadow Book" from Etsy. I got it here.
