Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette2

The Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette ($46) is one of two new Kat Von D Eyeshadow Palettes for Summer 2014.

I’m unsure if this palette is limited edition but I think it might just be permanent. It’s actually a completely new variation of palette compared to the True Romance Palettes as it is considerably bigger in size. I’m both delighted and somewhat meh about the new packaging. For one thing it reverts back to cardboard! Recently many of the True Romance Palettes were repackaged in plastic compacts and I’d have loved for this to have a similar packaging. None the less it is a sturdy cardboard compact with a very generously sized mirror and some fantastic art on the cover and inside the palette. I actually placed my Ladybird Palette on top of it so you can get a feel for the dramatic size increase.

Butter London Lippy Sheer Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Butter London Chuffed Lippy Lipgloss Summer 2014

Butter London Lippy Sheer Lipgloss in Chuffed is a new shade that’s part of the new Lolly Brights Collection for Summer 2014. I think the original Lippy Lipgloss is a great formula however, it does have a very strong taste and fragrance. The sheer version, well, it it is incredible and an absolutely must have in my opinion!

As for the shade Chuffed? Grab it before it disappears as it is a limited edition shade!

Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lorac Alter Ego Lipsticks

The new Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick ($16) got a permanent twenty shade launch for Summer 2014.

Considering the brand hasn’t really done a lipstick launch in a very long time I think Alter Ego Lipstick is a nice, new addition to the permanent range. No one loves Lorac Eyeshadow Palettes as much as I do and they never disappoint with their seasonal shadow palettes but I wasn’t actually quite happy they also went so far as to do a rather extensive lipstick shade release.

Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick is what they call highly pigmented (they weren’t lying) with a long wear and Vitamins C and E to hydrate.

L’Oreal Freida’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Freida's Nude Colour Riche Lipstick

L’Oreal Freida’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is another of the new limited edition L’Oreal Lipsticks that launched with the Collection Privee.

Each Collection Privee Lipstick is inspired by a past or present celebrity model and ambassador for L’Oreal and is a flattering shade of nude for that model’s skin tone.

L’Oreal Freida’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick was inspired by actress and model Freida Pinto. Her shade is a very interesting color that will look fabulous on medium, tan, and caramel tones. Of course, you aren’t limited to those skin tones! If you like the shade I say buy and use it :)

Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow3

Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow ($23) is a new cream eyeshadow the brand launched in nine, permanent shades. According to Givenchy these wear for up to 16 hours but honestly, I’m not sure I need my eyeshadow to last that long!

Initially I purchased a single shade which was Beige Mousseline because it reminded me so much of my very favorite Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Sand Dune. So yeah, I was curious about the Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow formula but if I’m honest I also really wanted this color because it reminded me SO much of Sand Dune which I can’t live without.

Anyway….it’s almost a dupe which I’m quite happy about but in the process I also fell in love with this formula. It’s quite a nice cream shadow plus affordable at $23. Givenchy isn’t really marked at such mid-range prices so yeah, this is kinda affordable when you compare it to their typical price range.
