One Year Eyecolor Challenge: the halfway point

Posted on Sunday, at

I'm actually a little bit past “halfway” with this challenge…but not by much. The halfway point date-wise (since the count-wise halfway point keeps changing) was almost ten days ago, on April 30th. I started out with just under 900 colors, and along the way I've gotten rid of about a dozen colors - about nine from Simply Naturals, but also a few from Bare Escentuals (Bon-Bon will be going into the bin-bin.
