KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Review & Swatches

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes 1

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Palettes launched a bit ago but I never actually reviewed them. I fear Japanese brands sometimes have repetitive colors in new eyeshadow palettes which somehow I’ve grown out of. I mean I get excited when KATE does a new palette but typically they release that new palette in the same shades over and over again so it starts to feel like the same exact thing to me.

Can’t believe I just said that as I’m all about KATE Eyeshadow but it is true. Lavshuca is guilty of similiar.

KATE is one (only) of Kanebo’s edger brands. It’s marked with a goth-y feel but the actual makeup is very tame and natural. Jewelry Mode Eyes is a simpler palette compared to some of KATE’s normal range of eyeshadow palettes as it contains merely three shades versus five. Honestly, as much as I love a range of shades to play with I find Jewelry Mode Eyes simplifies eyeshadow application which I’m cool with. Especially in the morning when I just don’t have the time or the patience to use five different eyeshadow shades in a single look.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Review & Swatches

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour

I purchased by first Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour several weeks ago. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, “How did you get out of purchasing only one?”

I avoid mineral companies like the plague because I have too much of a OCD personality that demands I collect every single shade they offer. Believe me it was difficult casually browsing OCC Makeup Pigments and coming away from the deal with a purchase of a single pot. I swear after I hit submit on my purchase I broke into a cold sweat and almost turned around the add one of every color into my cart.

Lucky enough I had a little willpower and quickly shut down my browser and powered off my computer. It was a close call…

Take a look!

Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Eyes Palette Review & Swatches

Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Eyes

What’s not to love about a chocolate bar shaped eye palette? Etude House’s new Sweet Recipe Chocolate Eyes Palette is shaped like a cute little bar of chocolate and even smells like one (it has a faint chocolate-y fragrance).

I can’t be the only person that thinks this is absolutely adorable!

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes Review & Swatches

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes

My review on the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes is a long time coming but I’ve finally completed my testing with them! Good news as I know MANY of you were eager to hear about these.

These are a fantastic follow up to Clinique’s wildly popular Chubby Lip Balms and excellent marketing on Clinique’s part if you think about. I mean think about it, we all know and love the balms so of course, introduce a similiar product for eyes and we’re bound to get excited about it. Imagine if they did a blush pencil? Don’t tell me you wouldn’t run to your counter to grab a blush pencil…!

Launched in twelve shades these are $16 each (buy two and get free shipping at Clinique.com using code CHUBBY) so they fall rather nicely into a mid-range cosmetic lover’s budget. I feel the price is very reasonable and borders beauty budget and mid-range pricing.
