NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer Review & Swatches

NYX Proof It Waterproof Primer

NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer ($7) is NYX’s newest eyeshadow primer for Fall 2014 that promises not only to intensify shadows but also to waterproof them.

Granted, I didn’t nor will I attempt to swim in eyeshadow so we’ll just have to test this one against the warmer weather eh? It’s probably great if you have oily lids as that’s where the “waterproof” benefits will kick in!


E.L.F. Disney Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Box Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Disney Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Box

The E.L.F. Disney Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Box Palette ($10) is a new palette featuring nine shades of eyeshadow, bronzers, gloss, and tools for application inspired by the Little Mermaid.

The palette is likely familiar to you if you indulged in the E.L.F. Disney Villainous Collections that have come out for Fall the last two years as the style is the same but this time around E.L.F. is celebrating the Disney Princesses rather than Disney Villains.

Let’s take a look!
