NYX Infinite Shadow Stick Review & Swatches

NYX Infinite Shadow Stick

What is they say about not fixing something that isn’t broken? The new NYX Infinite Shadow Stick launched recently for Spring 2014 in nine shades but as you know NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils have been around far longer (and for far cheaper) so I wasn’t sure why the brand felt the need to introduce a new cream shadow stick.

But hey, I’m cool with new anything so away I went to try out the new NYX Infinite Shadow Sticks but I got through the experience feeling like they really didn’t need to fix something that wasn’t already broken.


NYX Baked Shadow Review & Swatches

NYX Baked Shadow

Available in over 30 shades the new NYX Baked Shadow for Spring 2014 are the cutest little eyeshadow I’ve come across recently. These remind me of little bon bons or chocolate! They come in a chunky square compact with a ribbon closure that’s simply adorable! They’ll probably be a bit of a pain to store due to the chunky square packaging but visually they remind me of some little chocolates!

So cute!

I think this is an exciting release for NYX who always has such great launches. The brand never does anything small with their releases…! The Baked Shadows come in a massive array of shades so really for a brand new product that’s quite a huge launch.

Ulta Brilliant Color Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

Ulta Brilliant Color Eyeshadow

Ulta Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10) is a new L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow dupe that popped up recently at Ulta which I wanted to try out!

I actually got them on sale for Buy 1, Get 1 Free but I should say at $10 each I think I’d rather stick with L’Oreal’s version as those are $7.99 and considerably more pigmented. Granted, not that these are sheer but I do think you get a bit more bang for your buck with L’Oreal’s version so my suggestion is wait for a sale and don’t go purchasing them for $10 each!

Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights Shadow Palette

The new Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights Amazonian Clay Shadow Palette ($36) is a palette that features five warm shades of eyeshadow to create two gorgeous Summer looks that Tarte released with their Summer 2014 Collection. This limited edition eyeshadow palette comes in an exotic tropical print compact featuring a how to get the look guide to create either Tarte’s Golden Days look or their Sultry Nights one.

This uses more of a traditional color scheme that brand’s embrace for Summer with warmer bronze shades and gold with a pop of aqua.

Bare Minerals The Affair to Remember Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals The Affair to Remember Eyeshadow Palette 19

The new Bare Minerals The Affair to Remember Eyeshadow Palette ($40 at QVC.com) is a new Ready 8.0 Eyeshadow Palette that Bare Minerals recently launched in the UK. Much to my relief the Bare Minerals The Affair to Remember Eyeshadow Palette became available here in the US this weekend on QVC.

I quickly snatched one up on Friday because I was worried it would sell out fast!

Let’s take a look!
