I dunno about you but I definitely have a certain affection for pretty powders. But I have grown up a little and my makeup life has matured to a point where I’ll analyze said pretty powder and ask myself a few questions prior to a purchase.
- Do I really need this powder?
- Am I just buying it because it’s pretty?
- Will I actually use it or will it sit in my stash unused merely brought out on special occasions to stare at?
Somethings you have to be a little grown up about these things but sadly, this technique doesn’t always work and I become overwhelmed by cute powders like the new MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People, polka dots, ahhhhh!
Sometimes it’s tough resisting but in this case, you probably won’t need to dish out $38.
I was vaguely curious about the new Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Limited Edition Set released for Summer 2012 in Japan.
Lavshuca favors these little sets lately and hasn’t really updated with a major release in a while. I haven’t been following the brand lately since they release so many repetitive shades just in a new stylish way. It’s easy enough to get excited about a new design and packaging but sometimes I have to remind myself that the shades aren’t unique at all.
The Pure Blossoming Eyes Set is an example of repetitive shades however it did contain Clear Stay Eye Base which intrigued me so I ended up heading in for a purchase.
Here’s some thoughts!
Well, sometimes matte finishes surprise me and the new Sleek Makeup i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 is most defiantly a surprise. Surprise I like it, a lot.
Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Eyeshadow Quad, what I thought would be one of my favorite releases from the Sephora + Pantone Universe Collection.
I was every so eager to spice up my eyes with tangerine. Dare I say, I wear it well? I can definitely do peach on my eyes but it depends of course on the shade.
Let’s take a look at the Color of the Year Eyeshadow Quad and see if I can work it and how good the quality is.
Today’s cheap thrills are brought to you by this itty bitty little palette from Essence.
