Mmm…sometimes we have to eyeshadow grow up and comes to terms with the fact that nude and natural shades rule supreme in the game of aging. I love pops of color but I’m getting older and I can’t quite pull them off as well as I used too.
If you’re thinkin’ Duran Duran, leg warmers, and snap bracelets (please tell me you remember snap bracelets?) for your Summer might as well add in a few shades of bright, neon eyeshadow to go along with your stylin’.
The new Milani Paint Eyeshadow Palette has me wanting to taste the rainbow and the 80′s.
The set features 8 full size Tarte products plus some great extra and is $49.92 with a value of over $200. The collection is available as a one time purchase or you can purchase the QVC Auto Delivery Option which will lock you in this low price and send out new, seasonal shades of the set in future shipments.
Etude House has released a limited edition collection for Summer entitled Aloha. This is actually a really special release as it includes a bronzing tint.
Listen, anything having to do with bronzing is unheard of in Asia…! This is some serious shiz peeps.
No but seriously bronzing collections are a rarity in Asia so I thought the Etude House Aloha Collection was quite a little novelty plus the really cute Hawaiian inspired packaging and interesting products were worthy of a beg and a plead to a friend in Korea to grab them for me.
Today I’ll be showing you the Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes which are available in three sparkling shades.
I gotta say I really like the six pan Wet n Wild ColorIcon Palettes considerably more than the trios. Dare I whisper that the trios are a tad TOO shimmery…
Blasphemy! Did I just say too much shimmer?
True that. They really are intense but at this price no one is complaining around here. Want cheap Summer bronzed lids? Snatch up the new limited edition Wet n Wild ColorIcon in the The Gilded Age for under $3 bucks and have extra change in your wallet this Summer.
This palette gathers up some of the fab shades you’ll find in the Too Faced Smoky, Naked, Natural, and Soft & Sexy Eyeshadow Palettes.
It’s a pretty nice deal if you don’t already own these palettes as you’re getting a little sample of each without splurging on the real deal. The palette is sturdy, well made, and each shadow is pigmented with a fabulous formula.
Being Human fans I have some crispy nuggets of info from Toby today!
P.S. So pissed at him for killing Mitchell WTF dude!
He’s already been quite the busy boy and episode 7 from series 4 is in the can. He shares info about alot of new faces appearing in series 4, one old face, a shocking death (OMG! No more! I’m still in mourning for my Mitchell), a new villain (le sigh can anyone possibly top Herrick?), a sort of new supernatural element/ghost, a new writer, and a journey to somewhere that the series has never gone before (oh Bristol to Cardiff was SUCH an adventure yay! Heavy sarcasm!)
Ok, go on my son! Squeal! I’m excited. Personally I do think it’s like re-eventing the wheel without Mitchell but I’m game for new shiz!
By the way, have you watched Becoming Human? It rocks! It’s a series of 8 webisodes that features Craig Roberts, you know, that snarky little bugger of a new born Adam from last season!
Anyway, sorry, total babble fest there!
How about a little beauty budget eyeshadow to lighten the load of Being Human insanity?
Real Colors Regal Eyes Embellished Eyeshadow popped into my world recently and I gotta say, Imma like cheap as chips Sally Beauty Eyeshadow!
Unbeknownst to me, Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot have been hiding on QVC for a while now. Dude, how did I not know about these?
I’m off my game I guess.
Recently, a few new shades were introduced for Summer and that’s how I learned about these little guys. Each one comes with it’s own brush and is $23.
The formula is made with micronized Amazonian clay which intensifies color pigments all whole working to nourish the skin and reduce surface oil. Sounded like an idea solution for oily skin if it helps reduce surface oil eh? It’s also free from parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, and other nasties! The shadows promise to create a layer of product that basically wears well through sweat and tears without creasing for hours of wear time.
At the beginning of my makeup life and most of my older one I absolutely hated cream eyeshadows for some reason. I just couldn’t stand them. Perhaps it was my lack of patience during application of such a medium or the fact they tended to crease like crazy (circa BUDPP, “Before Urban Decay Primer Potion) but I avoided them like the plague.
I became enamored with them when I discovered the joy of Visee Quad Shining Eyes and ever after that faithful day creams have been a staple of my eyeshadow life.
For Summer 2011, Guerlain introduced three shades of Terra Inca Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow in warm, gorgeous hues to compliment your tan.
Estee Lauder introduced two dual sided Shadestick Duos with the Bronze Goddess Collection this year and damn, they sold out fast. I can’t find them online however I’ve seen them at two Estee Lauder counters so if you’re wanting ‘em after this review best get ‘em while the getting is good.
The sticks are great as a base, a liner, or an all over shadow. I was lucky enough to get the Gold Bronze color selection to try out because it’s thee perfect duo for warm, bronze-y eyes for Summer and yes, Summer seems to be nearing New York now. Can’t believe I’m going to say it but Yay! for humidity!
I wasn’t thinking Spring when I originally saw the Chanel Quardra Eyeshadow Palette in Lilium for Summer 2011. All that green had me thinking Fall but than the combination of browns and greens had me at rebirth, renewal, Spring….
