I purchased the Stila Dramatic Eye Palette during the Stila Online Warehouse several weeks ago. Sadly, it’s now gone from the site however I have a funny feeling during their next sale it’ll pop up again however if you simply can’t wait to try it after my review I do suggest E-bay as I’ve seen a few valid sellers that have it available for as little as $10!
The Dramatic Eye Palette is pretty much the same design as the $10 IT Girl Palette released a few months ago. It contains three shadows and the set I purchase also included a brush and eyeliner pencil. I can’t recall what I paid for the entire set but it was in the realms of $14 I think!?
Here’s a brief review and swatches if and when it pops back up at Stila.
The holidays may be over by I’m still all about sparkling shades of gold. Gold really helps lighten up my eyes and takes away the attention from dark circles, fine lines, and other scary eye woe. Gold just works well throughout the seasons doesn’t it? I can’t think of a single season which gold can’t be incorporated in, can you? Summer, Spring, Fall, the Holidays…you name it and you can def get away with some gorgeous gold!
Illamasqua Precision Ink in Alchemy fits the bill for sparkling gold….
Revlon has brand new Luxurious Color Smoky Crayons available for Spring 2011. These pencils mimic the idea of MAC Greasepaint or MAC Shadesticks. It’s basically a chubby pencil which you can use to fill your lid and blend out for a smoked look. If you already own Greasepaints and Shadesticks in various shades you probably won’t absolutely need the Revlon Smoky Crayon however it is a nice budget option to have available!
Let’s have a peek!
At first glance the MAC & Micky Contractor Collection does so deceive. I was thinking, “eh, probably nothing here to see…”
However, there is a gem or two in the rough even if you think the collection might not be suited to your skin tone. The shadows are all wearable in my opinion and one are two are really keepers, the fluidlines will easily be a must have if you’re a fan since the colors are stunning gem shades, and believe it or not the concealers in the lighter ranges might work well if you prefer a more lighter concealer (I always go lighter with my concealer).
Obviously MAC is gearing the collection towards a specific skin type so not everyone will be able to take advantage of some of the base options in this collection however the color products are definitely a go particularly if you like nudes (the lipstick shades are all very nude-ish and beige) or bolder shades (the shadows are all extra bold).
Let’s have a look at some swatches.
Don’t quote me on exact times and dates but Mally will be on QVC a few times over the next few days so you might wanna check her out to see if you can grab her sold out Starlight Deluxe Eyeliner Library. I’m not sure if she will have it on and available but it might be worth a Tivo.
Here’s my thoughts on it!
