Makeup Monday #1 - HIP Showy

There's a lot of talk about MAC Parrot eye shadow. It's in the new Originals collection, even though it's been out before (in the 2005 Jewel Eyes palette). I've seen a few blog and forum posts about how the L'Oreal HIP Bright Shadow Duo Showy has a color that looks just like Parrot.

So, if you want to try Parrot, but don't have the money to bid for it on eBay, this tutorial is for you:)

I think I got pretty close to the Full On Lust look (pictured below) that is described on the MAC website. I didn't use all of the colors they listed of course, just the Showy duo.

Hope you like it!

  1. WOW! Great, great, great tutorial. I'm soooo scared of using color. I guess I'm a chicken-little that way. So I should probably experiment a bit. Thanks for finding a dupe for the MAC Parrot!

  2. Thanks! I like this look. It's a bit much for work but good for a night out I think.

    Glad you liked the tutorial:)
