e.l.f. Essential Flawless Eyeshadow Spring 2012

E.L.F. is busy updating (and improving in my eyes) their Essentials Collection for Spring 2012.

I like the Studio Collection however I’ve always found fault with the Essential one but some of these new offerings look nifty.

The E.L.F. Essential Flawless Eyeshadow Palettes are interesting!

e.l.f. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

Here’s an interesting little find, E.L.F. Studio High Defination Undereye Setting Powder.

This light-diffusing powder camouflages fine lines, dark circles and imperfections.

Best part?

The $3 price tag.

Considering E.L.F.’s track record with their Studio Collection I’m going to say this is probably a good buy but expect to see asinine e-mails like this in your inbox.

Milani Runway Eyes Eyeshadow Golden Touch, Antigua, Peaches & Cream Review & Swatches

I was absolutely thrilled when I originally purchased Milani’s Runway Eyes Eyeshadow a few years ago. It was my first really big budget purchase back in the day. Up until that time I really avoided drugstore brands but after that purchase I was pretty adventurous and made more and more trips to CVS.

Thanks Milani, you converted me and gave me hope that drugstore makeup isn’t all rubbish!

I’m quite happy that Runway Eyes Eyeshadow isn’t forgotten. Released quite a few years ago, this shadow hasn’t really seen update in quite a while but for Spring 2012 Milani has added three new shades to the collection.

Take a peek!

Prestige Primed & Ready Eye Primer Review

Prestige doesn’t update often with newly released products so I kinda jumped on top of their Primed & Ready Eye Primer when I saw it at my local drugstore.

Thing is, I’m shopping for a new eye primer at the moment. Urban Primer Potion just doesn’t cut it for me. The formula seems to have changed and it doesn’t seem to hold my shadow as long as it once did. Crazy I know, but I really stick by the fact that the formula seems to be pretty different.

Let’s take a look, maybe Prestige Primed & Ready Eye Primer will be on the case.

Avon Shine Attract Lipstick Review & Swatches

Avon Shine Attract Lipsticks (why do I keep spelling that attack?) have finally launched with an intro price of a mere $5 bucks each.

Me likey great deals on Avon Lipsticks.

Considering Avon’s track record in the lipstick category I was fully ready to indulge. Avon has super inexpensive lipstick offerings with superb formulas. Add an interesting product like Shine Attract Lipstick to your resume and you have instantly succeeded at sucking the money right from my wallet on a purchase.

Let’s take a look and see if these are as interesting as they sound.
