Grape Hyacinth Inspired EotD

I finally have a couple grape hyacinths blooming!  They inspired me to use blue-y purple and grassy green shadows together.

This one looks so happy with the crocus blooming next to it.

I used some ancient Shiseido cream/mousse shadows for the main purple and green colors.  They are so very gorgeous, but because they are so soft they tend to crease on my eyes rather quickly.

However, this was as creas-y as the purple got, even after a few hours (I took the above photo probably 30 min after application).

Even though these are old, I can't seem to part with them.  And they seem like they are still okay, even though they probably aren't.  They haven't dried out or changed texture, so, whatever.  Hopefully I won't end up blind from using old eyeshadows...

Slightly out of focus to show just how shimmery!
I love how this turned out!

Do you have any old products you can't bear to part with, and find yourself using, even though you know you shouldn't?
