I’m thinking that there is always a good excuse to play Sammy Hagar…he’s like the perfect introduction to my Rock & Republic Eye Colour Trip Review.
Whatta ya think?
“Header bangs in leather……….!” \m/ Yeah well you’re either as old as I am and a lover of good metal or just not a Sammy kinda girl. Sorry!
I gotta say that the evolution of Sammy doesn’t please as much as Sammy circa 1981…must be something to do with his lack of hair. WTH? Oh why oh do we have to grow up and get old? No fair.
Anyway….Rock & Republic probably didn’t mean for it to strike my heavy metal nerve but it does none the less. With it’s uber slick packaging, extremely heavy packaging might I add, and gorgeous shades for a smoky rockin’ eye look it’s sure to please anyone that likes a bit of edge with their makeup!
If I was feeling so inclined I deem the Rock & Republic Eye Colour Trio a perfectly pretty paperweight for my desk! Damn this thing is HEAVY! Talk about attention to packaging detail! This has luxury written all over it. It’s super slim and made out of a heavy black metal with the Rock & Republic emblem embossed on top in a blaze of chic. I can’t say, out of all my collection, that I own anything like this palette. The packaging is outstanding.
I tried out the Rock & Republic Colour Eye Trio in Scene 1 and it’s making me want to splurge on Scene 2, hey what’s one scene without the other right? Although expensive at $65 USD rest assured your money is being well spent on a quality palette. I think $65 was probably the cost of the palette alone and not the color within, did I mention how heavy this is?
The palette is made up of three shades of velvety smooth shadow. I’m not a fan of velvet shadows but these have a smooth, easy to blend formula and create a gorgeous smoky look that’s sure to please anyone who likes a bit edge to their makeup or a certain sophistication.
The colors included are:
Each of the shades are available as single shadows for $28 USD each so buying the palette is actually a good deal. Chain Link is a soft sheer gray, Nailed is a deeper black gray, and Tempting is a muted mauve, lilac. The shades are gorgeous on their own or combined to create a killer look. I created two looks below using Chain Link and Nailed together and Tempting on it’s own.
Here’s a look I created using Tempting:
The look below was created using Nailed and Chain Link:
Overall, the palette does make one wince at it’s price but after experiencing it for yourself, you’ll be as addicted as I am. Truly the line is luxury cosmetic at it’s best. It’s a rare and genius collection in my opinion and I look forward to indulging further. Sometimes we need a little champagne and caviar in our life and Rock & Republic brings it.

Dudes! Omg! 20% Off Armani Cosmetics? So unheard of! But I’ll take it. But meh don’t get too excited as it’s not a whole bunch of stuff. It’s only limited to a few items but hey still! They have both the sparkling mascaras I want on sale so I’m on board with that. I was kinda wishing and hoping I’d come across that super Holiday palette I was lemming but never caved on but still I’ll take the mascaras no problemo! They also have a few lippies, some shadows, and other bits and bobs.
Some of you may know and some of you may not know this…but the Muse deems it her duty to tell you for the first time or to remind you if you already know that Shiseido has big old packs of awesome facial cloth for $9 USD. It’s not the best facial cloth around but it’s the best one you’ll find in the US and the price is rather nice as well.
Facial Cloth is great for removing eye makeup or makeup in general, applying toner, etc…it’s particularly nice because it’s a generous size, very soft, doesn’t leaves blobs of cotton all over your face, and is nice and thick. Yes, you can get pretty decent cotton in a drugstore with quite a cheap price but I actually think that the Shiseido is well worth picking it up since it has around 150 pieces of more in the bag and is such a generous size. Your local counter carries facial cotton but you probably never knew since they don’t actually “advertise it”. Normally a bag lasts me for 5-6 months with daily use. If I’m really cheaping it up I can go even longer by using one cloth for both eyes, they are so big you can easily do so!
So head to your local Shiseido counter and nab a bag for yourself! Great price and a ton of cotton to aid you in getting all your eye makeup swept away!
