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.

Let’s take a look!


MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Eyeshadow

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?


Sonia Kashuk Textured Mauve Monochrome Eye Quad Review & Swatches

Sonia Kashuk  Monochrome Eye Quad Textured Mauve

The Sonia Kashuk Textured Mauve Monochrome Eye Quad is one of four new eyeshadow palettes that Sonia Kashuk launched at Target for Spring 2013.

I’ve already reviewed one of these palettes in a prior post and today I thought I’d explore my second favorite shade in this collection, Textured Mauve. Honestly, this is more dusky pink than mauve but either way I’m all about it.

Take a look!


Maybelline Icy Mint Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow Reviews & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Icy Mint

The Maybelline Icy Mint Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow was a shade I was hopeful about but like all the Maybelline Color Tattoo Summer 2013 Eyeshadows it didn’t have a good run. Not sure what happened with the formula here but some folks profess they LOVE the Summer shades and others, like me, rant them as being awful.

Take a peek at Icy Mint, you decide.


Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo Review & Swatches

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in Sunkissed

Avon recently introduced two new limited edition True Color Eyeshadow Duo Palettes with their Fiji Paradise Summer 2013 Collection. I picked up the color Sunkissed with a recent Avon order I did because it had a very pretty corally peach shade in it. The other shade Luscious Orchid is a purple and brown combo which I skipped out on.

I don’t technically like Avon Eyeshadow particularly their quads and duo palettes. Creams, powders…I’ve never really had a successful run with Avon Eyeshadow unfortunately. But sometimes my love of peach leads me into a purchase and in this case I decided hey, maybe the True Color Eyeshadow Duo would be better than the quads I’ve tried in the past.

Let’s fine out if it was.
