So when I asked you guys on twitter/facebook if you’d be interested in seeing some old school posts about makeup I used back in the day, you seemed genuinely interested. Good thing, because I’m a hoarder. You know on tv when they tell people “You need to get rid of this. I know it is a good memory but you have to let it go” or something like that? Well I held onto quite a few makeup products from back in the day & I’m excited to show you how I used them, what they looked like, & all that jazz. If you’re not interested in see my old makeup (as hip, & cool, & with it as I was back then) then feel free to check out any of my other hundreds of posts. I’ll be featuring products every Thursday for awhile so sit back & enjoy!
This glitter was definitely a favorite. I rocked this silver holo glitter on my eyes & hair at many a cheesy school dance. The other shades landed on my eyes so often & that was long before shading or contouring. One while is a pale white gold & the other is a pure frosted white.
The glitter is a mix of hot pink & white iridescent glitter which was just so freaking hot. I mean, it was multi-colored mixed with hot pink.Gosh I was cool. The other two shades were on my eyes constantly. One is the palest of pinks with pink shimmer while the other is a dusty rose-y pink that kind of looks fire-y on the eye. I also had a shade from Caboodles way back in the day similar to the darker shade I was obsessed with. Even with my teenage makeup ADD I went through like 3 containers of it.
Here I’ve foiled all four of the eyeshadows. Aren’t they pretty? Wish I’d known back then!
I’m honestly not sure which of these trios I used more, the whites or the pinks. White eyeshadow was way cool at my middle school & shimmer was always in. Plus, each of the trios has a loose glitter. Glitter was the bomb ya’ll. I never foiled them back then (I wouldn’t have even known what that was) but man are they pretty right? These are powdered mineral shadows without any smell, have been sanitized, & the colors haven’t shifted a bit. The containers are dirty, cracked here & there, & I don’t think they ever quite closed right. I never cared & looking at them now I’m impressed by the quality. Its too bad Charlotte Russe stopped making these because wow they’re lovely.
They’re pretty great right? Did you use loose eyeshadows back in the day? What were your favorite colors to wear?
