I counted how many different mica colors I have - 81!! This doesn't include the white base powders that go into almost everything, like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or even silk powder. This is just the colored stuff used for blushes, eye shadows, bronzers, and even to tint foundations. I have a bazillion different kinds of whites: sparkly white, pearl white, white that shifts to green in the light, or to blue, red, copper, gold, green, or pink. 7 different gold micas, ranging in depth from 24 karat gold to a more deep, antique gold. 23 different shades of red/pink/brick - and that's not counting the endless shades of bronze. Throw in another 8-10 different shades each of blues, greens, purples - even blacks and silvers. Every finish known to man: pearly finishes, high sparkle, low luster, flat colors... I've used not even half of these colors!
That's where you come in. Tell me what colors you want for the fall/holiday season. Want more blues? Dark or light? Blues that change to black, or blues that change to purple? I probably have a blue that changes to stark white in here somewhere! Can I interest you in a mauve or wine shade or three? Tell me what you have a hankering for, and I'll make it. I'm feeling an eye shadow binge coming up. Just don't ask me to match a MAC shade - I'm color wheel retarded, remember?
The only thing I dread about doing shadows is not making them - it's the photographing, then adding to the site. I don't just add it to the eye shadow pages, I have to add every option to each of the kits as well.
And for those of you who got some of the samples of the "nameless" magic eye shadow formulation, how do you like it? Want more in that texture, or more in loose powder?
I refuse to buy any more colors. Just because I got a deal doesn't make it a necessity. I can understand why I have 400 pairs of jeans: you need light, dark, medium, and comfy in small, medium, and large sizes. With different leg widths for each, of course. My daughter needs 35 white shirts, all either tank tops or camis - I'm not altogether sure why, but who am I to comment when I have 81 different colors of micas???
