Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Kit Review & Swatches

Almay Intense I Color Smoky I

I picked up this Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Palette for Brown Eyes about two hundred years ago…naaa, not that long. But it was late last year when they originally released for Spring 2012.

I just now dug it out of my “to be reviewed” pile after getting curious about the new palettes Almay released for Spring 2013. I figured, “hey, I already have one to try!” so why haul the new ones unless I knew I’d love ‘em!

Let’s take a look!

Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush1

Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush is available in three shades selections and recently launched in drugstores as part of Almay’s Spring 2013 Collection.

The blushes are $8.69 each at Harmons but I suspect you may run into a higher price tag should you purchase at CVS, Walgreens, etc….

Do yourself a favor, wait for these to be on sale before indulging, if you even bother indulging after this review.

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup Spring 2012

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Foundation ($9.99) recently launched for Spring 2013 at drugstores in four color selections (I found mine at Harmons).

This is color adapting foundation product that supposedly “changes” once applied to your perfect shade of color thus the lack of colors. Light, Light/Medium, Medium, and Dark are the soup du jour for this foundation.

Take a look!

Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer Review & Swatches

Almay Intense I Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer

Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer is a newly launched cream eyeshadow released in four shades for Spring 2013. These cream shadows act as an all over color eyeshadow or as a prep and prime shade for powder.

The four shades were created to flatter a range of eye colors such as blue, hazel, and brown. Almay carefully selected shades they felt would flatter different color eyes and marketed each liquid shadow towards that eye type.

As you know, I’m all about wearing whatever I want on my eyes. I’m not really convinced any one shade of shadow is meant for my brown eyes. I like soft browns and I like bold aquas and I love pink and gold…really any color shade of eyeshadow is cool by me. The only reason I’d avoid certain shades would be because some clash with my dark circles. Aside from that I never had any issues wearing any shade I wanted to. So I’m not completely sold on all the marketing I see lately for shades that would be “suitable” for my eye color.

So what did I do? I was a rebel and hauled three of the four shades Almay introduced in the new Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer. Even the one for green eyes…nanner nanner!
