 As you can see, these are phone pictures because using my camera is a bit of a hassle these days. I took these in my bathroom because I like how it makes my skin look versus my ring light or other types of lighting. It makes my skin look smooth and you can see the highlight. You can also see the metallic shimmer of my eyeshadow a lot better here. These photos are unedited, I just uploaded them from my phone. I haven't played with makeup for fun in a long time, and I've barely used these palettes since I got them months ago, so it was really nice to do this look and I'm really happy with how it turned out. 
These eyeshadow palettes are all awesome. I was particularly amazed by the Electric Obsessions; to be honest I didn't even care about the shimmery shades in the palette; I got it mainly for the matte bright colors like the pinks and orange. After using them though, I'm blown away by how gorgeous, pigmented, and nice to work with these shimmer shadows are. I want to do more looks based around these eyeshadows. I will just issue a disclaimer though that the pink did stain my eyelids; not terribly but enough to be noticeable. I didn't use any kind of base or primer underneath so maybe that would help. I'll try using a base next time.
I was upset to see though that this palette doesn't seem to be available online anywhere, so I don't know if it was discontinued or what. Why do they always discontinue the good stuff? :(

What do you think of this look? Do you own any of these palettes? Do you want to? Let me know!
