Browns, Golds, and Coppers...

I have finally come to the realization that I hoard brown eyeshadow!  I was doing my makeup the other day and decided to line them all up and see what colors I felt like paring together... lets just say, over half of them were brown!  No wonder I have such a hard time switching things up!! 

I think the reason behind the ridiculous amounts of brown eyeshadow is the fact that once upon a time I had this perfect brown color!  I finally threw it away last winter because after 4 years of packing it around, I couldn't even imagine the bacteria that might be lurking around in it!  (It took me an eye infection to actually figure this out!)  Needless to say, they don't make the color anymore, and I haven't found anything that even comes close to it!  I HATE it when this happens!  Anyways... the reason I loved this "one" particular eyeshadow is because it made my eyes look insanely blue!  It was that one color that never failed me!  So RIP eyeshadow!  I'm sorry I had to let you go, because I miss you like crazy!!

Anyways, now that I've had my few seconds of mourning I'll let you know exactly what I was up to in the pictures!  I used... heck... I can't remember.   Time to start rubbing colors together and comparing them to my picture!  Okay... I'm pretty sure I used MAC in Patina, Mulch, and Brun!   I liked how the colors were a little different but all went together well!   I also used my NYX liner in Dark Brown on my upper lash line.  I'm still in love with this eyeliner!  I also just FINALLY realized that you're supposed to store it tip down (so it keeps working )!  Which kind of bothers me!  My makeup is organized so all my tips go up, and my OCD is starting to flare up!  I mean, two eyeliners out of all of my makeup are throwing off my whole "makeup-boxish" aesthetic!  BAH!!  But I suppose part of life is overcoming hurdles... (yes, I realize this is minor in the world of hurdles, but regardless, it's still a pet peeve!!)

What are your favorite products that have been "DISCONTINUED"? 

Mine are the eyeshadow I ranted about... I'm pretty sure it was Rimmel and I think the name of it was Oak.  And covergirl used to have this mascara... It was the only one that didn't make my eyelashes stick straight out after I applied it.  It held the curl I put it in with the lash curler... (Lash Blast waterproof mascara does the same thing but it's a B!*#h to wash off!! 



Anyways, enough ranting today!  I hope you all have a lovely safe window weekend! (the window thing is the result of me trying to think, type and hold a conversation at the same time)  I need to work on the multi-tasking skills!!  But regardless... be safe, and live life!

Oh... and PS:

very pretty look :) I love the browns and the gold eyes shadows a lot. I think the reason why everybody ends up using these shades is because its pretty wearable and looks amazing.
