If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a friend might I suggest the Benefit Go TropiCORAL Lip & Cheek Kit ($28). This is one of several palettes introduced for Fall 2012 but people, Imma tell you, you should totally gift it to a friend as soon after Christmas we’ll be dreaming of Spring Break and that’s when we can whip this beautiful palette out and create glowing peach cheeks and plush lips!
I’ve mentioned it in a few of my reviews already but I’m very pleased with the packaging on Holiday 2012. These are a hard plastic shell with a firm plush pin cushion design on top. The compacts kinda have a vintage feel (the plastic might take away from that some though) and are very girlish and pretty.
The E.L.F. Devious Dramatic Eyes Palette ($9.99) is inspired by Disney’s Evil Queen from Snow White. This is one of three palettes available exclusively at Walgreens that recently launched for a limited time for Halloween 2012.
I recently tried out and reviewed the Cruella Palette for you and decided today I’d give the Evil Queen a whirl. She always had a rather killer smoky purple eye look going didn’t she?
The Carried Away Set is more about travel friendly options and a selection of products that can be broken up and either toted away with you or used on their own. This is a more versatile selection of products that doesn’t confine you to a bulky palette. No question, Tarte’s past Jewelry Box Palettes are absolutely gorgeous. However, these types of palettes are a bit bulky and aren’t travel friendly.
Carried Away gives you the option to easily tote your makeup with you or remove it from the makeup bag it comes with and take only one or two pieces of the collection with you. As I said the Jewelery Box Palettes are gorgeous but I do like the option of removing the eyeshadow palette or the blush or the lipglosses and just taking those with me….where as with the larger palette I have to tote it ALL with me.
The Carried Away Set definitely proves easier to travel with.
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.
