Lorac Eye Candy Eye Pencil Collection Review & Swatches

Lorac Eye Candy Eye Pencil Collection

Lorac Eye Candy Eye Pencil Collection ($28) is a set of four Lorac Eyeliners in a gift set for Holiday 2012. These are an exclusive set to Ulta if you’re yearning them after this review.

This year, Lorac went with a chocolate theme for Holiday 2012. I’m seeing lots of candy and pastry themes for Holiday Collections this year. Lorac went above and beyond with their own Holiday 2012 Collection as they create a selection of eye palettes that look like chocolate bars. So incredibly tempting and cute!

Their tempting Eye Candy Set could make your wish list this Holiday Season due to the diamond bedecked packaging but the formula might disappoint…!

MAC Marilyn Monroe Dazzleglass Review & Swatches

MAC Marilyn Monroe Dazzleglasses

If you’re all about the sparkle you’ll enjoy the two limited edition Dazzleglasses released with the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection.

I think the only thing special about these is the Marilyn packaging. You might want to take that into consideration prior to dishing out $21.50 for each one as really, there are SO many Holiday Lipgloss Sets available out there which will get you some very nice glosses at less the purchase of these two Dazzleglasses.

Let’s take a look!

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick 34

The MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection has launched online and will be available this Thursday on counter. The collection is an ode to one of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars, Marilyn Monroe.

If MAC was going to be inspired by anyone I’d say Marilyn was a good pick to represent classic, silver screened beauty. The collection features an array of products inspired by the starlet and features her beautiful image on the packaging.

Marilyn Monroe was a very minimalist beauty queen in my eyes. Some liner, vibrant red lips, and milky skin was about the extent of her look so of course, MAC introduced four vibrant, limited edition shades of red lipstick to suit a ton of different skin tones.

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick 35

I’m not a fond fan of red lipstick but I’ve come across a few that I hold on tight too. I typically look best (or I’m delusional that I look good) in warmer shades of red. I think it’s nice that the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection has a variety of reds to choose from to suit cooler and warmer skin tones.

Let’s take a look at two of my favorite shades from the launch.

E.L.F. Cruella Evil Everday Eyes Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Cruella Evil Everday Eyes

I can’t get the stupid Cruella song out of my head every since word popped on E.L.F.’s new Villain Eye Palette Collection. I sing it in the shower, I hum it at work, God what an ear worm to have.

As you know E.L.F. released three Disney Villain inspired Eyeshadow Palettes for Halloween 2012. The palettes are $9.99 each and available exclusively at Walgreens (in most cases they can be found in the Halloween section of the store).

The palettes are made from a sturdy cardboard and feature essentials for creating a Villain themed eye look.

I got my hands on Cruella’s Eyeshadow Palette recently.

Here are my thoughts.
