It’s probably to early to say this but I’m leaning towards saying that the Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette is my favorite Summer palette. I’m really loving softer more nude shades of shadow lately. I can’t quite go the bolder, crazy look for Summer anymore. Heck, I really loved aqua at one time as a primary shade for the warm weather but now I’m more about delicate shades of shimmering brown, gold, and bronze and the Softbox Eye Palette brings just that.
Photographers love shooting in natural light to create a diffused, softer look and that’s exactly what this palette does. The shades give a soft focused look that’s romantic and ethereal but still have the fun Summer vibe as well!
Wet n Wild has a release of four new, limited edition Vanite ColorIcon Eye & Lip Quartet Palettes. Each palette has a “princess” theme with two lipglosses and two shadows.
I have to say I dislike the over use of “ColorIcon” as I commonly associate the name with the awesome six pan palettes. I will say I liked the idea of these because believe me a few years ago you couldn’t get me to touch such inexpensive makeup as I was simply too snobbish to bother however brands have evovled, Wet n Wild being one, and more recent releases are surprisely good for the price. However, they are made in China which could make or break the deal for some.
Thanks to Etude House I’m on this wicked orange/tangerine kick lately! I’ve been digging all the shades of orange, coral, peach, and tangerine I have in my stash and indulging in many other products in the same shades.
Korean brand, Etude House, has two new palettes released with their Miss Tangerine Collection that features some brilliant shades of tangerine.
Here’s my take on the Etude House Miss Tangerine LUCIDarling Fantastic Gradation Eyes Palette.
I was in traffic court earlier today to pick up a mate for lunch. Funny story as I was waiting for him in the back of the court room (he’s a cop) and his phone goes off as the Judge is speaking and starts playing the The Defranco Family, Love Beat.
I had haul ass out of the room fast because I was about to burst out laughing and was highly in danger of saying WTF?
Word to the wise, always turn down the ringer on your phone particularly when it has bad 70’s ring tones on it!
How about you guys?
Any of your friends have embarrassing or weird ring tones? I guess mine can be considered completely goofy, Doctor Who Theme Song.
Anyway, back on the top of makeup! How’s Hello Kitty Beauty been treating you at Sephora?
I was trying out the Hello Kitty Say Hello Palette Happy Fun Palette this week.
Ahh the Stila Garden Bliss Collection. Introduced late last month this was a special preview selection from Stila which is gone from their site now but still available from HSN if you absolutely can’t wait to buy it after hearing this review (Update, I wrote this post last week and the kit is now back on Stila’s website).
The set includes lipglaze, mascara, a bag, and the Stila Garden Bliss Palette aka what I’ve dubbed, “Another Travel Girl Palette…”
