Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes ($13.95) is a new take on Physicians Formula Shimmer Strip Eyeshadow Palette that launched in two shades for Spring 2014.
This palette houses twelve shades that can be used as an allover facial highlighter or used individually as eyeshadow. It’s an interesting concept but for me a bit of a mess to use.
Yes, the new Maybelline Shimmering Sea Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is in fact Maybelline Seashore Frosts Color Tattoo Eyeshadow under a new name.
Maybelline launched two brand new Summer 2014 Color Tattoo Eyeshadows that are available for a limited time but what they failed to tell you is these shades are simply repromoted colors under a new name. Seashore Frosts was released for Summer 2013 and was also a limited edition shade! It gets brought back to us in the form of the newly named Shimmering Sea Color Tattoo Eyeshadow that’s available with the Maybelline Bleached Neons Summer 2014 Collection.
I feel a little misled and slightly deceived they thought it was ok to repromote a shade under a new name. Why bother? It’s ok to bring back shades from collections past. It’s not ok to rename them though and confuse people that may already own the color under another name. Ugh!
Clinique All About Shadow 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral Territory 2 is a new, limited edition palette featuring eight shades of eyeshadow in nude, natural shades.
Clinique did a stupendous job with this palette but it does combine some traditional nude shades of shadow but they have a nice twist of deeper, warmer shades like Black Honey Eyeshadow (hello awesome color!).
Let’s take a look!
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette ($60 but currently on sale for $54 at Nordstrom.com) is a new, limited edition nude eyeshadow palette that launched with the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer 2014 Collection.
This is unusual and quite unique palette that features five nude shadows as well as three metallics. I’m actually confused about whether I like it or not.

The Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette ($46) is one of two new Kat Von D Eyeshadow Palettes for Summer 2014.
I’m unsure if this palette is limited edition but I think it might just be permanent. It’s actually a completely new variation of palette compared to the True Romance Palettes as it is considerably bigger in size. I’m both delighted and somewhat meh about the new packaging. For one thing it reverts back to cardboard! Recently many of the True Romance Palettes were repackaged in plastic compacts and I’d have loved for this to have a similar packaging. None the less it is a sturdy cardboard compact with a very generously sized mirror and some fantastic art on the cover and inside the palette. I actually placed my Ladybird Palette on top of it so you can get a feel for the dramatic size increase.
