We went to my Mom and Dad's house for Easter dinner, and hid eggs for Minibeast. Good times. We took lots of pictures, and I ate entirely too much. When we made it back home, Hubby tried talking to his dad on the phone. He mainly wanted to wish him a happy Easter, but H-Dad has a bad sore throat and was coughing too much to be able to talk, bless his heart.
They've let H-Dad go home from the hospice, but the cancer is terminal. The way I understand it, his body is run down to the point he's very vulnerable to infections...like colds from others, and so forth. Hubby told him he'd call him back and check on him tomorrow. I wish H-Dad had someone around to show him how to use texting on his phone. We could be in touch with him several times throughout the day, and he could get back to us when it was convenient for him.
At any rate, once we made it back home, and everything settled down, I went around tidying up the house. I went to clean up my makeup area, and ended up toss out some of my older eye shadows. I tend to keep makeup whether it's something I'd use or not, but lately I'm trying to pass on the stuff I know I won't use. About two months ago, I gave my mom a bundle of lipsticks, and two, gallon sized zip baggies of eyeshadow pots that I've never used. I'm about due another clean out. I don't know how some of these colors creep into my makeup bag. I mostly wear greens, browns, pinks, golds, and black.
When moving things around tonight, I came across Hard Candy's Space Cadet. I forgot I had that color. I bought it around the time MAC's Venomous Villains came out. I wanted the She Who Dares eyeshadow duo but couldn't get my hands on it at the time. I bought the Space Cadet thinking it might be a passable duplicate, and ended up with She Who Dares about a week later. I don't know why I never went back to swatch them together. The main difference is the consistency and sparkle. Both will go black and muddy if brushed too much. SWD has way, way more glitter. It has an almost pure lime green sparkle to it. Gorgeous. Space Cadet has a green-blue undertone, so I guess it's more of a jungle green shade. The glitter isn't as intense, and it's more of a true green. A grass green. Very jewel like. It's very pretty when worn wet, you just have to pack it on there. For all practical purposes, you can do a lot with both shades.

Hmm...I'm thinking this makeup would match those zombie shoes.
