Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer is a newly launched cream eyeshadow released in four shades for Spring 2013. These cream shadows act as an all over color eyeshadow or as a prep and prime shade for powder.
The four shades were created to flatter a range of eye colors such as blue, hazel, and brown. Almay carefully selected shades they felt would flatter different color eyes and marketed each liquid shadow towards that eye type.
As you know, I’m all about wearing whatever I want on my eyes. I’m not really convinced any one shade of shadow is meant for my brown eyes. I like soft browns and I like bold aquas and I love pink and gold…really any color shade of eyeshadow is cool by me. The only reason I’d avoid certain shades would be because some clash with my dark circles. Aside from that I never had any issues wearing any shade I wanted to. So I’m not completely sold on all the marketing I see lately for shades that would be “suitable” for my eye color.
So what did I do? I was a rebel and hauled three of the four shades Almay introduced in the new Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer. Even the one for green eyes…nanner nanner!

Instructions for a day and a night look, applicators, and five shades of color are included with this easy to apply palette. If you’ve had issues in the past determining the best colors for contrasting, shading, and just generally had a difficult time grasping the best way to apply your eye make up you’ll be quite happy with Lancome’s easy to use Color Design Palettes.

Hello Kitty Say Hello Eyeshadow Palette in Wild Thing is the latest palette Sephora has launched in the Hello Kitty Beauty Collection. Although a Holiday release the shades scream Fall to me.
I’ve had my downfalls with the Hello Kitty Say Hello Eyeshadow Palettes. Some are are ok, most are frosty, some have odd color pair ups…they do share one common trait, the very cute packaging. Sometimes cute packaging can get repetitive though and we really just want good makeup. Wait, what am I saying? Cute packaging is EVERYTHING!
With a brown leopard print and shiny bronze metallic bow this palette oozes cuteness but are the contents just as great?
