MAC Dare to Wear Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

MAC Dare to Wear Eye Shadow 1

Aptly named Dare to Wear is a collection of crazily vibrant shades of MAC eyes shadows and lip glosses, daring you to wear such bold shades.

MAC Dare to Wear is what MAC C-Shock was to me three years ago, a reintroduction of what MAC does best, awe aspiring shades of shadow.

Maybe….

  • A. I’m getting too old.
  • B. I hated the finish on most of these.
  • C. I’m off the MAC bandwagon

Because I totally did not roll over and play dead when I saw this collection pop up. I’m in this brown eyeshadow stage right now, a place where I never thought I’d be, and aquas, greens, and my normal crazy shades of color are simply not as appealing as more neutral shades lately so maybe that’s what triggered my less than stellar excitement upon seeing Dare to Wear. Plus I kinda felt like the mattes and frost finishes prevented me from bothering as well…

Anyway!

I did get a few MAC Dare to Wear shades to try out.

Wanna peep?

Avon ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit Review and Swatches

I got an earworm this morning and it goes something like this, “So I put my hands up, They’re playing my song, And the butterflys fly away! Noddin’ my head like yeah, Moving my hips like yeah, And I got my hands up, They’re playin my song, I know I’m gonna be ok Yeah, It’s a party in the USA, Yeah, It’s a party in the USA!

Oh god. Someone stop me please.

Miley Cyrus was on Graham Norton and I was flipping through it this morning now I can’t get the damn song out of my head. Ugh. I wanted to see Jack Whitehall but bloody Miley kept getting in the way grrrr!

Anyway.

That was so off the topic of makeup right?

Philosophy Windows to the Soul Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

Philosophy starts off Fall this year with a color cosmetic launch. As you know from my past Musings, I’m a fond fan of discussing Philosophy’s break through into the cosmetic world. I think it’s official they are here to stay as Nordstrom and even Sephora now have special little displays with Philosophy cosmetic offerings, a few years ago you’d have seen displays featuring skincare and shower gel but not color cosmetics. Pretty great if you’re a fan of the brand right?

The latest release are the new Philosophy Windows to the Soul Eye Shadow Palettes which come in three shade selections. It’s Philosophy’s solution to easy, 1, 2, 3-sy eyeshadow application.
