Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette Review and Swatches

Just when you though Bobbi was all about playing it safe she releases the Crystal Eye Palette. Now Bobbi Brown injects color here and there on occasion but for the most part she’s a professional and keeps to slicker shades of browns, golds, and other colors that work well in a business environment or for more elegant makeup.

I will say prior to starting Musings I was all about loud and outrageous colors of eyeshadow and well into my first years of Musings I was still about that. But I’ve gotten older and I’ve gotten very appreciative of what a single shade of good brown eyeshadow can do for my eyes. I can thank Bobbi Brown for that.

Now for the Holidays, Bobbi got a little crazy and for the first time since I was introduced to the brand she injected a little color into one of her new Holiday palettes.

The Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette for the most part are as wild as Bobbi gets with shades of purple and white however she also included a popping shade of teal eyeshadow that may just surprise you. Go on now Bobbi, getting all crazy on us!

Lorac Private Affair Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Lorac Private Affair Palette was one of the very first palettes that caught my fancy late this Summer when I saw it introduced as part of the Lorac Fall Collection 2010.

The palette is exclusive to Sephora is $38 and has six shadows, primer, and a brush which is housed in a rather slick, sexy little faux croc compact.

I think the shades called out to me most, actually one in particular, which was a gorgeous plumm-y wine. I really feel like Lorac is a bit understated and doesn’t get nearly enough love, they seriously have some killer offerings and the Private Affair Palette seemed like one such awesome offering.

Stila Eye for Color Eye Shadow Palette 19

Curious minds, did anyone grab up the Stila Eye for Color Eye Shadow Palette during Stila’s Happy Hour on Friday?

It was $18 and features a color wheel design with 13 shades of Stila Eyeshadow. Happy days! It’s sadly gone from Stila now but it’ll be back in October debuting with the Stila Holiday Collection 2010.

The good news, if you didn’t grab it for yourself, is I have one that I swatched up for you and did a few looks with.

MAC Fabulous Felines Review and Swatches

Rawrrr! Crazy cat people take note, MAC Fabulous Felines launches next week (August 26th) or in some areas you have been privy to a pre-launch.

Anyone see this collection up close and personal yet? I got a few pieces to play with but haven’t seen it all as of yet. I called MAC today and asked if they are pre-launching and I got some dippy on the phone telling me, “Oh yeah, that collection is out in September…” Obviously she’s on another planet that takes one month to travel to…Jebus who educates these people. Please for the love of the Makeup Gods, don’t let your MAC stores or counters tell you this is launching in September….set your calenders for next week.

MAC Fabulous Felines launches in three collections that are themed around three different cats. Minds you, some of the looks MAC did with the collection aren’t cat-like but more along the lines of mimicking the colors of the different types of cats. So if you happen to be a crazy cat lady that’s expecting some sort of cat looks, you might be disappointed. I know cat people, I own a cat but I don’t consider myself a cat person, I like ragging on you weirdos. Kiddin’, kiddin’!

Moral of this story is here’s a little sneaky peek of MAC Fabulous Felines and later when the collection launches in September (HA, little joke there) ahem…next WEEK…I’ll show you the rest of my purchases.
