The Eyeshadow Junkie Tag ❥ 2016 Edition

Eyeshadow Junkie Tag 2016

I had this TAG in mind for the longest time and since my love for eyeshadow is legendary, there you have it …

Tag Questions :

1. Favorite Drugstore Line for Eyeshadows?

This is a tricky question since I find drugstore’s eyeshadows to be so-so when it come to quality. However, I think that NYX, recently available in some Quebec drugstores, makes some good ones.

2. Favorite Eyeshadow Primer?

I have two equally-loved favorites: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots and bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow SPF 15. I seriously cannot live without them; they make any eyeshadow stay put all day long and most importantly, they don’t crease. I could talk all day about these two wonderful products!!!

3. First Ever Eyeshadow Purchase?

If I remember correctly, it was a L’Oréal eyeshadow included in a pink trio set and they were all horrible; they didn’t blend, there was no pigmentation, nothing to make me fall in love with makeup then!!! I really got addicted to eyeshadows when I bought my first high-end palette …

4. Best Drugstore Eyeshadow Dupe?

I don’t own enough drugstore eyeshadows to find dupes! Sorry, but to this date, high-end shadow formulas have been performing way better than drugstore ones.

5. Most Underrated?

Easily, my Blinc Neutral Shadow Fusion palette. I feel I’m the only one who owns this gorgeous palette. One of the best neutral palette in the market with an exceptionnal quality. On top of it, it’s vegan & cruelty-free! I still ask myself how come this brand is so unknown …

6. Favorite Single Eyeshadow?

I’ve been totally rocking the NARS Single Eyeshadow in Himalia. I enjoy putting this on my mobile lid. I use it dry since I don’t want to look like a Christmas ornament in the middle of May.

Note: I’ve disliked every Nars eyeshadow palettes that I ever bought, but I really enjoy their single shadows!!!

7. Favorite Cream Eyeshadow?

Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are a delight: the creamy and long wearing formula make them my ultimate favorite.

8. Favorite Neutral Eyeshadow?

My Kat Von D Shade+ Light Eye Contour is my go-to palette for neutral shadows. Every single shade you ever wanted is included in this little number. Did you ever hear someone say negative comment about this palette? I never read or heard anything bad, so that says it all…

9. Favorite Colored Eyeshadow?

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows 2. I never thought I would enjoy this super bright color palette but I really do. Impeccable is the word I would use! This hidden gem is still available at Sephora US for $34!!!! Go grab one 😉

10. Best Eyeshadow Palette Ever!!!?

This is my hardest question to answer but I will go with Laura Mercier Nude Smoky Eye palette. 5 colors that make for an effortless eye look. Sadly, I never did a review on this one since it was a Limited Edition and sold out so fast that I would just be a tease to write about it!

Thanks for stopping by my beautiful friends xxx

  1. I am not big on drugstore eye shadows wither, I to have found the quality to be lacking whenever I try them. I am one of the few I think that isn’t that much of a fan of the Nars shadow! Maybe it is user error, but I can not for th elife of me get my brushes to even pick it up! Really need to try out my bareMinerals BB eye shadow!


  2. I need to try more drugstore stuff too, I just hate to have to spend money on it and it stinks. At least with high end I know what to expect! Definitely wanna try one of those Nars singles too!


  3. Ooh, I didn’t ever realize that the NARS e/s singles are better than the palettes. Guess I should try one of them (esp in that newer formulation that you have in the pic).

    I have a bunch of NYX singles I need to depot… the old formulation with the cushioned squares was better, but the new ones are still pretty decent!

    1. I like my NYX shadows but honestly I never use them !!!
      My worst eyeshadow palette ever is from Nars but this single (the only one I own) is really amazing ! xxx


  4. Oh wow, you own a lot of the NYX refills – I’ll have to try the new ones. I own mostly the old NYX shadows.
    I saw that Blinc palette at Trade Secrets and thought of you! And okok I will get that Kat Von D one in the Fall (maybe I’ll be the ONE person who will have a negative review on it LOL). Ahhh… SO many palettes this year that I need to get!
    I’ve heard mixed reviews of that Nars Himalia eye shadow. It’s on my radar but not sure if I should get it. I really like Nars duos and singles, they’re amazing quality.


    1. You will find the KVD too bulky !!! (I start to know my friend Stashy’s taste :D) You are better with the Viseart Neutral Matte palette (Better quality and the value is great)
      I’m surprise to hear that there is some bad reviews of the Nars single in Himalia !!! It’s stunning and easy to wear…
      Between you and me, I’ve used my NYX eyeshadows maybe 10 times 😦 They are good but the staying power is not great !
      The Blinc palette is truly amazing, unfortunately like you saw the packaging is quite bulky and unattractive !

      1. I did have concerns about how large the KVD one is but it’s not like I’ll travel with it.
        Now, the packaging of the Blinc is quite bulky and ugly… I have reservations about that one for sure!
