I dunno about you but I definitely have a certain affection for pretty powders. But I have grown up a little and my makeup life has matured to a point where I’ll analyze said pretty powder and ask myself a few questions prior to a purchase.
- Do I really need this powder?
- Am I just buying it because it’s pretty?
- Will I actually use it or will it sit in my stash unused merely brought out on special occasions to stare at?
Somethings you have to be a little grown up about these things but sadly, this technique doesn’t always work and I become overwhelmed by cute powders like the new MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People, polka dots, ahhhhh!
Sometimes it’s tough resisting but in this case, you probably won’t need to dish out $38.
As you know, I recently blogged about the new Stila Travel Girl Palettes for Summer 2012. There are five available at the moment but knowing Stila’s track record they’ll probably do an exclusive here or there with Macy’s, Sephora, etc….
The style of palette isn’t actually new since Nordstrom first introduced their exclusive version several weeks ago entitled On The Road. This version is a collaboration between Nordsom BP (BP is a collection created by Nordie’s for teens/young women) and Stila. Stila has released a few BP collaborated palettes prior to this so I was kinda delighted by On the Road since it was a new and different variation from the typical budget palettes Stila has put out the last two years or so.
However, I think the uniqueness and specialness has worn off for me now that I know there will be five (or more) now.
Here’s my thoughts on the Stila + BP On the Road Palette, take the jump for the deets.
I was vaguely curious about the new Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Limited Edition Set released for Summer 2012 in Japan.
Lavshuca favors these little sets lately and hasn’t really updated with a major release in a while. I haven’t been following the brand lately since they release so many repetitive shades just in a new stylish way. It’s easy enough to get excited about a new design and packaging but sometimes I have to remind myself that the shades aren’t unique at all.
The Pure Blossoming Eyes Set is an example of repetitive shades however it did contain Clear Stay Eye Base which intrigued me so I ended up heading in for a purchase.
Here’s some thoughts!
Ready for MAC Summer 2012? It’s coming atcha soon. I wasn’t too excited about it myself, I feel like the nautical theme is a little repetitive but I’m sure many folks are hyped over the collection.
I have a few products available that I’ll be swatching for you today.
Let’s start with MAC Feeling Fresh Eyeshadow.
Take a peek!
Ok, don’t kill me, I kinda sorta fell out of love with L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow. It’s a little too frosty for me sometimes and it looks super cakey on no matter how light handed I am.
But facts is facts, it really does have a super formula for drugstore eyeshadow.
How are you currently feeling about them?
Let’s take a look at one of the new shades released for Summer, Pink Sapphire.
