Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil Review & Swatches

Maybelline Master Smoky Fall 2013

Maybelline Master Smoky is a new mechanical eye pencil with a smudger tip available in six shades that’s available now at drugstores for the Fall 2013 season.

Smoky, sultry eyes are always a hot trend for Fall and make a reappearance almost every single year. The new Maybelline Master Smoky Mechanical Eye Pencil is a nifty new pencil that allows you to achieve the look effortlessly or at least that’s what Maybelline tells me.

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow

Ahh you might remember the Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow from earlier this Spring which launched in Japan. These new single eyeshadows from Japanese brand Lavshuca are a step outside the normal palettes that Lavshuca traditionally releases.

The really unique thing is the fact they come in both matte and shimmer shades. Matte drugstore eyeshadow isn’t terribly common from brands like Lavshuca. I’m not a fan of matte finish myself but the idea of Lavshuca doing matte shades was intriguing.

In the end, I ended up with the sparkly shades hehe…! But I definitely think it’s a fresh step in a new direction for Japanese brands to embrace more matte shades of eyeshadow.

MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Review & Swatches

MAC GreenLuxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palettes ($40) are a new creation from the brand that recently launched for Summer 2013. These shadow palettes contain five strips of eyeshadow color in graduating shades of color.

I was deeply impressed with all four of the palettes I tried and would liken them to Japanese Eyeshadow in terms of texture. If you’re a fond fan of Japanese brands like KATE or Majolica Majorca I’m positive you’re going to adore these.

Take a look!

Maybelline Blue Paradise Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Blue Paradise 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Blue Paradise is one of eight new, limited edition shades that Maybelline launched for Summer 2013. Blue Paradise was a shade I was lucky enough to come across at CVS but I haven’t seen it anywhere else. So if you’re having a hard time tracking it down I would suggest CVS as your first stop.

Like many of the Summer 2013 Color Tattoo Eyeshadows I had a little grief with Blue Paradise but not nearly the amount of woe I experienced with other shades.

MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Eyeshadow1

The MAC Tropical Taboo Collection includes six new, limited edition shades for Summer 2013. I find there are two different types of folks when it comes to Mineralize Eyeshadows, those who love ‘em and those who simply hate ‘em.

I find I fall in between the line lately as I used to LOVE Mineralize Eyeshadow now I kinda have a love/hate relationship with them. Being in between should not be an option…you either love ‘em or you hate ‘em but you don’t both love and hate them. Insert rolling eyes here…!

Perhaps the ones from the MAC Tropical Taboo Collection will be a strictly a love?
