Maybelline Fall 2013

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow, Maybelline New Master Smoky Shadow Pencil, Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara, and more are coming at you this June and July. This is kinda a Maybelline Fall 2013 preview in my opinion.

I’ve posted a ton of great photos of the newest offerings on Instagram today and you can take a look at them by clicking here.

I’ll be swatching, reviewing, and posting about all of these products shortly.

I’m quite excited about the Pure Pigment Eyeshadows! They kinda remind me of the old HIP Pigments, remember those?

There’s also a new collection of Polka Dots and Holographic Nail Effects Color Show Nail Lacquers and a new Fit Me Shine-Free Stick Foundation available shortly as well. I’ve always been a rather fond fan of Benefit’s old Playsticks so I’m curious how these new foundation sticks stand up!

Are you excited about these new launches?

Any you are dying to try?


Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot Review & Swatches

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot

Covergirl has a new range of single eyeshadows out entitled Flamed Out Shadow Pots. Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pots are available in twelve vibrant shades for Summer 2013 and I believe they will become a permanent part of the Covergirl Collection at some point.

These are an interesting take for Covergirl as they are apparently marketed towards a younger girl with Pink being the model for the collection and the colors all being quite vibrant. The price point is quite nice as well at a mere $3.49 each at Harmons. I imagine once they hit CVS and Walgreens they won’t be as kindly priced but if you can snag them at under four bucks I’d say you got a bargain on your hands.

How are they?

Let’s take a look!

NYX Parallel Worlds Makeup Collection Inspired by The Mortal Instruments

To celebrate the release of The Mortal Instruments City of Bones, NYX has created the Parallel Worlds Box a selection of products inspired by the The Mortal Instruments. The NYX Cosmetics Parallel Worlds Box is filled with six full size NYX products for $24.99.

Seriously, Jamie Campbell Bower and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in a movie? Together? My heart be still! I really adore the novels so I’m quite excited to see this, let’s just hope it isn’t as bad as Beautiful Creatures, cringe!

But…the story for now is NYX Cosmetics Parallel Worlds Box.

Take a peek!

Thanks to Courtney for the tip today that Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Lipgloss is available at drugstore.com. These already released in the UK as Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer apparently it is being called Show Off here in the US.

I hope they make an appearance in drugstores as I’m quite curious to try them.


Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix Review

Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix

Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix I really like you but I’m wondering if I’m imagining how good my eyes look after I use you hmmm….

Every have those moments where you start using a product and you swear to the beauty gods that some miracle has occurred on your face or under your eyes? And you start calling all your beauty loving friends and telling them how that $2,500 moisturizer was SO worth it because you look ten, possibly forty years younger. And how it restored the glow to your skin and made you look oh so incredible?

I’m having that experience with Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix.

I’m unsure if I’m imagining it or this stuff is really working.
