I seriously do not need more shimmer eyeshadow in my life which is why I didn’t bother indulging in the new Hard Candy Eye Def Glitter Eyeshadow. Looking at the tube, well, let’s just say it’s even too much for glitter for me.
I did however give it another glance when a reader mentioned how delightful these are.
What did I think?
My best friend’s Jai has a little cousin, umm wait, scratch that. She’s not really little nor does she like to be referred to as little. She’s an adult at the tender age of 11.
No seriously, my friend’s cousin is 11 going on 30. We are just completely in awe that this child is growing up way too fast. Either that or he and I are so very old and we didn’t realize it. We recently took her out for a little shopping expedition and ended up at an Icing store. Me being me I was all about oooo’ing and ahhh’ing over the cute accessories and makeup bits and bobs although much of the makeup is geared towards tweens and earlier teens I still loving picking through it all.
My findings led me to Flaunt Beauty. Anyone see this stuff yet? It’s over priced makeup and fragrance available exclusively at The Icing. I’m such a sucker I absolutely fell in love with the cutesy palettes because they sported cute Pin Up Girls. Loves!
Ahhh the great debate. Should you indulge in the E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shouldn’t you? 32 Eyeshadows, sponge applicator, mirror, nice slim compact, $5 buck price tag….sounds dreamy right? Where could you possibly go wrong indulging since the price isn’t too bad….
This year E.L.F. has two of these limited edition palettes available for the Holidays. The one I’ll be reviewing here today is the mini version which includes 32 shadows for $5 bucks and there’s another, which I didn’t purchase, that includes 100 eyeshadows for $10 bucks.
First off, these are obviously way popular because they are sold out however E.L.F. is allowing orders for when they do come back in stock. Secondly, I purchased mine on a sheer whim because I know alot of people wanted to hear about it, see photos, etc…prior to purchasing it for themselves. And thirdly, I am a bit of a makeup snob and palettes like this don’t always garner my love and attention. Slapping 100′s of eyeshadow into a palette can prove great particularly from brands like Urban Decay, hey bring that on, but present me with one from E.L.F. and I’m naturally a little wary about the quality.
Let’s have a look and see if this bad boy lives up to it’s “professional status” as dubbed by E.L.F.
Visee is a branch off brand from Kose and is sold or used to be sold exclusively in Japan. Since my earlier ventures into Visee, its become available in other parts of Asia but not within the US.
It’s been a while since I purchased any Visee Eye Palettes. The joy of a great Visee Palette was definitely not as appealing as it once was considering the brand started becoming a tad repetitive, color wise, for me.
I did feel like the Visee Royal Party Glam Nude Eye Palettes deserved a purchase particularly Blond Fur which felt different and unique enough to buy and not a constant rehash of the same colors the brand favors as of late.
Let’s have a look!
After my great success with the Sephora Flashy Liner Gift Set I was all about indulging in a few more of Sephora’s Holiday Gift Sets. I never have any good luck with Sephora makeup but I’m loving some of these Holiday sets.
It’s possible that lightening can strike twice right?
