Quite a few Bionic Beauties have written me with their horrible troubles in locating my absolute favorite brown eyeshadow, Milani’s Java Bean.
As I was digging through my makeup case this weekend, I happened upon a darn-close duplicate! Hot Topic’s makes a eye palette of 5 shadows- brown, gunmetal gray, silver, forest green, and deep purple. The brown shadow is very similar to Java Bean, with just a bit more of a warm tone.
I picked up two palette’s from Hot Topic on a whim earlier this year. The colors were pretty, the price was cheap, and I really wanted to test out their pigmentation (here’s an “Under the Sea” makeup look I created using Hot Topic eyeshadows). They wear perfectly- no creasing, barely any fallout, the colors are true. In summary, they are certainly a great buy!
The Neutral Shimmer Eye Palette is $4.99 at Hot Topic stores or at their online website. I can’t find the exact one I have with the purple and green on their website, but I still see it in all the physical Hot Topic stores.
