This one's from November. I wanted something with yellow, but at the same time I wanted something dark and I think I got exactly what I wanted.

This was:

The shadow, I'm unsure of. It was either the Kat Von D Metal Orchestra palette or the HIP Platinum duo.
Black liner is Milani Eye Tech in Black
Yellow liner is MAC Primary Yellow applied wet over Fyrinnae Bifrost
Cover Girl Lash Blast

I started out with Bifrost as the liner but it was too shiny and gold for what I wanted, so I covered it with Primary Yellow. That ended up being perfect, I was happy with the intensity of the yellow.

I love yellow eyeshadow... and also yellow nail polish. Wanna see some yellow polishes?

  1. Oh my god!!!!!!!!
    I also love yellow nail polishes, and I've been longing for some comparison pics. This post is my dream come true. Thanks! ;)

  2. i love the banana and sunflower colored yellows, theyre so beautiful! i dont care for the neon ones though, especially on my pale skin.. eeek! never seen so many perfect applications of yellow in one post before.. incredible!!

  3. I can't stop laughing at Pippa's name, poor are the girls with such a name. In polish (the language :p) it is kind of slang for, you know, certain women's organ... the bottom one :p. But color seems nice. (Longtime reader, it's my first comment! should I say I love your blog? sounds like a must for a stranger :p Anyways, I do! ;))

  4. Yellow looks so happy :) I love that eyelook!

  5. after a week's worth of rain here in LA, i thank you for the montage of yellow polishes! i'm going home and painting my nails with OPI's Need Sunglasses... :-)

  6. you've just added a little sunshine to my day! thank you!

  7. I have a weakness for yellow polish! I buy pretty much every one I see unless it's a neon. I have been lemming Chanel LA Sunrise for AGES...just can't bring myself to pay the ridiculous eBay prices. Great post!!!

  8. Love the eyeshadow look. The yellow gives it a pop!

    These yellows are a divine of sunshine.

  9. Yellow is that shade that best defines an unexpected pop of color!

  10. That eye look is EPIC. And omg, I didn't really there WERE that many yellow polishes! heh!

  11. Heh, when I read the prhase "Wanna see some yellow polishes?" I was excpecting like 5 to 6 polishes but then the pics just went on and on! This is my first time reading your blog and I'm hooked:) Love the polishes and the make up is really beautiful and different:)

  12. Phosper looks cool! Love the eye look and the way you did your liner.

  13. I didn't think it was ever going to end! Love them all. Your makeup is always stunning. I wouldn't have thought to use the yellow like that. Love it.

  14. I love a good funny colour on my eye liners! Very nice! But yellow polishes, they look so cool but I always find that mine miscolours my nails even with a base coat. Don't know why..? I do really like Misa Jester Ate The King Cake and OPI Banan Bandanna. :)

  15. Wow, very nice to see all those yellow polishes together!

  16. this post is so awesome!!!!!!
    yellow polishes don't get enough play! i love so many of these! thanks for posting!

  17. How does China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Color Club Almost Famous and Zoya Creamy compare to one another?

  18. Thank you so much for this post! Question: which, if any, of these yellow polishes needed a white base coat to make then opaque?
