Oh MAC what are you doing to me? Your new MAC Studio Sculpt Shade and Line Eyeshadow is simply awful. What an innovative idea that’s executed so poorly.
The new MAC Studio Sculpt Shade and Line Eyeshadow release in eight shades this May for a limited time. They combine two eyeshadows with a single shade of matte powder eyeliner. I mean what could be more simple yet so complex to create dramatic contrasting eye looks in one easy step. Here’s an eyeshadow palette that combines to contrasting shades of eyeshadow that you don’t have to think about! They compliment each other perfect so no matching on your part is required and you even get a powder line to use with those shades. It’s makeup application at it’s easiest.
But gosh the formula is all wrong!
Hard Candy Single & Loving It Eyeshadow ($3 at Walmart) gets a revamp for Spring 2014 with a new mosaic, tie dye print. Available in five shades these new single eyeshadows have a super soft buttery texture that will make you question if you really only paid $3 for it!
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!
