Cheap Jumbo Eye Pencils from LA Colors

LA Colors Eye Pencil

Dontcha love a good deal? I do! That’s why I’m curious about these cheap as chips LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils which will set you back a buck forty nine each.

Chubby eye pencils are such a great trick to have up your sleeve! They are fab for super easy swipe and blend eye looks or to use as a base for loose pigments and powders to minimize fall out or even to intensify your favorite eyeshadow as you can apply your shadow on top of the cream pencil.

They have endless uses and when they are cheap?

Even better!

Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Vintage Plum

Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is another, matte Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadow launching with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Collection.

I recently ran across a display featuring all five of the new “Leather” Color Tattoo Eyeshadows for Fall 2014 and being as obsessed with them I’m quite happy they have five, new shades. A reader recently tweeted Maybelline about these and they replied they are indeed permanent. So I’m tentatively saying these will be around to stay so if you can’t find them now, you surely will as we head deeper into Summer.

Vintage Plum is one of the four shades that happens to be matte in finish. So many fans will be happy these do not contain shimmer or sparkle of any kind.

Let’s take a look!

Maybelline Creamy Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo Creamy Beige

Maybelline Creamy Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of five, new “Leather” cream eyeshadows that is available with the new Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Makeup Collection.

This is an exciting launch of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow as a majority of these shades are matte in finish. I did notice the lids say Leather on them! Some are speculating that references the finish but honestly, has anyone heard of a leather finish eyeshadow before?! I’m curious how Maybelline will market these as we draw nearer to Fall and whether or not they’ll become permanent the way the Metallic Color Tattoo Eyeshadows did!

Rimmel Rockin’ Curves ScandalEyes Mascara Review

Rimmel Rockin Curves Scandal Eyes Mascara

Rimmel Rockin’ Curves ScandalEyes Mascara is Rimmel’s newest ScandalEyes Mascara formula that’s launched in the UK a few months ago and is now popping up in drugstores here in the US for Fall 2014.

How many ScandalEyes Mascaras do we have at this point? I’ve lost count!

The big difference and draw with the Rimmel Rockin’ Curves ScandalEyes Mascara formula is a new “first ever” broken heart shaped brush that’s supposed to create big, curvy, “rockin” lashes due to the cleverly designed application that twists and curves around lashes.

Take a look!
