Rad Or Bad: Let's Discuss Neon-Pink Eyeshadow

I am someone who can appreciate a brave beauty choice. Post-NYFW, I needed something to jog me out of the makeup malaise that sets in after being inundated with pretty much every color under the sun for days and days. And, BOOM — this morning's news crawl was just what I needed.
The gals at Glamour spotted French actress Joséphine de La Baume wearing bright pink eyeshadow on the red carpet at a Lancôme pre-BAFTA party (click here to see the magical moment), which saves me from needing more coffee and prompts me to ask your thoughts on eye-popping pink eyeshadow.
Let's clarify that this isn't your mother's chalky neon shadow from the '80s. I'm guessing the look of La Baume is rocking isn't shadow as much as it's Make Up For Ever Pure Pigment No. 12 mixed with clear gloss. This isn't a whisper pink, which has its place in Merchant Ivory films. No, this is pink that listens to the MC5 and likes to smash a leather jacket against the windows at clubs. It's a Grace Jones pink, and not for the timid. The question is, Do you dig it?
Hot pink eyeshadow, peeps: rad or bad? Do you put on the pink eye or run for the hills? Will you rock a flush of fuschia, or will you pass on this pop of pigment? Let's discuss. (Glamour)
