Obsession: Yellow Eyeshadow

Just like my insatiable love of teals/aqua shades for eyeshadows and nail polish, yellow is another obsession of mine. It's supposed to be 'in' for this year's spring [which may be true as MAC is releasing a Bright Future in Style Warriors collection [May] and it's BRIGHT canary yellow!] Check out my current stash!

Here we have:
The She Space [TSS] About Face Shot the messenger, which is a really pretty true yellow gold and great shimmer
MAC Goldmine, which is a slightly more brassy than Shot the Messenger, but again, great shimmer
MAC Golden Lemon, Shimmery! And it has chunks of more shimmer. Very prone to fallout but beautiful bright yellow! [I think of this color when I hear yellow, perfect!]
Shu Uemura ME300, Great shimmery yellow, with great texture. Seems to have a bit of green to it!
MJMJ YE323, Matte with coarse sparkles. This is interesting, bad payoff on brush though, slightly lighter and more green tinged than ME300.
Anna Sui 800, which I wouldn't really classify as a yellow. Sure it's yellow, but once swatched it's more of a cream shade. What can I say--appearences can be decieving. I rarely reach for this one!


  1. Thanks for the swatches! The one from TSS is soooooooo pretty! So is MAC's pigment, but I can totally understand the fallout issues.

  2. Hi Catherine! No problem :) I agree, TSS and MAC's are super pretty--it's bad that I don't reach for them as often as I should though!
