Almay Intense i-Color Smoky i-Kit

Almay Intense i Color Smoky i Kit 1

Almay Intense i-Color Smoky i-Kit is a new range of easy to apply eyeshadows for creating a smoky eye look in three steps that suitable for your own unique eye shade. Again, with brands telling me what shades I should or shouldn’t wear! Grrr! I purchased one of these, and hell I live dangerous because I think I got one meant for green eyes, GASP! Could I be arrested by the makeup police for that?!

No but seriously….

I have no great love for Almay but these really do look like intense eyeshadows with nice color payoff! Haven’t played yet but will review when I do.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Cream Lipgloss

This one cracked me up.

I dunno if you can see it but it reads, “Solange Knowles wears Rimmel Moisture Renew Cream Lipgloss”. To which I’d love to reply, “So what…?”

Anyway, I don’t love Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick so I probably won’t love the Cream Lipgloss but who knows, could prove good? Maybe I’ll try.

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Glam Collection

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Glam Collection 1

Here’s the display for the new limited edition Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Glam Collection. I reviewed the Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner recently and wasn’t too impressed with it however I’m somewhat tempted to try out the mascara which is also part of this collection.

I was looking for the Mineral Glow Pearls Blush display but it appears they sold out of it. No wonder as that was really a great product and I hope to see it as a permanent part of the collection!

Anyone try yet?

Maybelline Color Sensational Reds and Pinks Collection

Maybelline Color Sensational Reds and Pinks Collection 1

Maybelline has a Color Sensational Reds and Pinks Collection. Although I’m not a huge fan of Color Sensational formula I do like when new shades pop up particularly in displays like this as they warrant a look at since some are rather special.

I didn’t indulge in any of these but there are some very nice shades of pink available that might warrant a purchase.

Almay Smart Balance Pressed Powder

The new Almay Smart Balance Press Powder comes in three “custom” color combinations. This is a pressed powder with what appears to be a base of transparent white powder and tiny dotted layers of color. Supposedly the powder adapts to your skin tone for a perfect fit. I’ve been trying the Light/Medium version and so far I actually kinda like it. It doesn’t have a ton of coverage but it brightens up the face rather nicely.

Does it work for you?
