Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 The Happy Place Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 The Happy Place 4

As you know Bare Minerals has a new Summer/Fall 2012 Collection entitled Supernatural. I blogged about a month or so ago. I haven’t gotten a ton of information on this collection but from what I can understand it is a Summer and Fall Collection all in one.

I believe the shades are available for a limited time so if you end up liking anything I’ve featured so far from the Bare Minerals Supernatural Collection I do recommend checking them out before they disappear.

I’ll be reviewing one of the two Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 Palettes I have today in the shade selection The Happy Place.

Let’s have a look!

MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow 13

The MAC Electric Cool Collection which includes the new Electric Cool Eye Shadow is launching this week (August 2nd). Excited?

I thought the MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow formula was going to be along the lines of a reformulated Big Bounce release but thankfully, since I didn’t like Big Bounce Eye Shadow at all, it goes an entirely new direction.

The release includes 12 shades of eyeshadow ($17.50) which promise electrifying pigment in a lightweight formula.

After getting my hands on a shade of Electric Cool Eye Shadow I was quite delighted with the texture however, they prove a little difficult to work with.

Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Eye Palette Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Eye Palette 11

The new Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Eye Palette ($60) contains eight shades of shadow and is newly launched with the Desert Twilight Fall Collection.

Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Eye Palette 8

These eight shades are a cross of sultry nudes with a rosy mauve twist. The inspiration behind the colors is the end of the day, dusk and to some extent they do remind me of the end of a long, hot day, just after the sun dips down and hides away for the evening.

Take a look!

Lorac Pro Palette Review & Swatches

Lorac Pro Palette 1

Oh well hello Lorac Pro Palette wanna be my new best friend forever? The new Lorac Pro Palette ($42) is newly launched for Fall 2012 and includes sixteen fabulous shades of eyeshadow as well as a Mini Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer.

I feel like it’s Christmas! What a surprise for Fall to get such a wide range of eyeshadows in a single compact.

Of course, I instantly had a makeup boner (am I allowed to say that on here?) when I saw it pop up on Sephora. Lorac has a fairly great track record and releases high quality palettes again and again and again. I also feel like they offer enough variety in these palettes that they are worth picking up without worrying about dupes in past palettes you own or have tried from the brand in the past.

Let’s take a look!
