Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Kit Review & Swatches

Almay Intense I Color Smoky I

I picked up this Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Palette for Brown Eyes about two hundred years ago…naaa, not that long. But it was late last year when they originally released for Spring 2012.

I just now dug it out of my “to be reviewed” pile after getting curious about the new palettes Almay released for Spring 2013. I figured, “hey, I already have one to try!” so why haul the new ones unless I knew I’d love ‘em!

Let’s take a look!

Chanel Raffinement Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Chanel Eyeshadow Quad Raffinement Spring 2013

Chanel introduced the Raffinement Eyeshadow Quad with the new Printemps Precieux de Chanel Spring 2013 Collection. This is very a basic palette that creates a pretty, soft look.

I was surprised they decided to introduce this with their Spring Collection as the promo model appears to be wearing something considerably lighter but looking close enough they did create an eye look using these shades. If you work in an office environment you can get addicted to easy to use shades like this.

MAC Pressed Pigments Review & Swatches

MAC Pressed Pigments1

MAC Pressed Pigments make a comeback for Spring 2013 with twelve new shades. I didn’t review these on the last launch MAC however, at that time, colors were a bit limited. MAC Pressed Pigments get a bigger push for Spring 2013 with a larger variety of colors so if you enjoyed them the last time around, I’m sure the idea of new shades is exciting.

MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm Compact Review & Swatches

MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm Compact Spring 2013

I purchased my first MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm Compact in August I believe? MAC launched the BB Beauty Balm Compact a few months ago but not many folks realized it was hanging out on the website.

It comes to the forefront this Spring 2013 as part of the general catalog. I mentioned in a few posts already that you’ll see BB Creams getting a big push for Spring so I suspect that’s why MAC is kinda bringing this forward.

Also keep in mind, it was supposed to launch with the Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm but for some reason there were some delays thus the new “relaunch” of the product.

MAC Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm Review & Swatches

MAC Mineralize Tinted Lip Balms

MAC Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm are available in five shades for a limited time with the new MAC Apres Collection for Spring 2013. This is an exciting release for MAC as these balms are a new product. Yes, you might want to liken them to Suntints but believe me they are their own product.
