Bobbi Brown Ultra Nude Eye Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Neons are trending at the moment but if I’m honest I can’t really wear ‘em. I think neon shades rock on dark skin but I look awfully garish if I try say a bright orange lipstick. As much as I want to wear neon orange it just doesn’t look right. But I’m all about convincing myself it looks awesome.

Every do that?

Tell yourself that something looks brilliant but in reality you know how bad it really looks.

I am digging on Bobbi’s “safe way” to wear neons. Her Neons and Nudes Collection features delicate shades of color for eyes and cheeks and combines it with a pop of vibrant lipstick. Perhaps this will make it easier to embrace the trend this season.

Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 The Playlist Review, Swatches, Photos

I have alot of favorites this year from the Holiday Collections released but some more than others stand out for me. Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 is an eight shade palette available in two shades selections for Holiday 2011. I’m already very impressed with Bare Minerals for stepping up their game and entering the pressed shadow realm plus the formula is proving to be amazing as well. The Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 brings even more of that great formula to us.

Rimmel HD Glam Eyes Review, Swatches, Photos

Rimmel HD Glam Eyes 11

Rimmel introduced its HD Glam Eyes Palettes earlier this year in the UK. A celebration of all good things British these eyeshadow palettes feature four shades of shadow in a Union Jack design. Anglophiles like myself swoon when we see makeup and the UK combined.

Formula is amazing on these little guys and the price isn’t too bad either at $4.99 each.

Can you guess the problem though here?

Stila Daydream Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Stila Daydream Palette 4

Depending how you look at the Stila DayDream Palette it’s either really exciting or really ho-hum. I happen to fit into the realms of being kinda excited about it and kinda meh about it. Stila released a massive palette like this last year and I generally liked it but fast forward to this year and it gets a bit repetitive and easily duped.

I will say the Daydream palette, in terms of packaging, is visually pleasing. I say “visually” since it actually isn’t practical or user friendly in some cases but more on that later. The price is a very nice $18 as well so if you’re seeking to gift something a little special this is quite cute.

Let’s take a look!

Wet n Wild Baked ColorIcon Eye Palette Holiday 2011 Review, Swatches, Photos

Wet n Wild Baked ColorIcon Eye Palette Holiday 2011 2

I have a theory that Wet n Wild rushed along their success a little too quickly. Last year, they came out with not only an outstanding Holiday Collection but also some very key catalog items that proved incredibly good for a lower end drugstore cosmetic brand.

This year, they made some valid attempts to top themselves but so far I’m not entirely impressed with the LE offerings particularly ones they released for the Holidays.

Let’s take a look at the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eye Kit for Holiday 2011.
