Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow is testimony to the fact that you can find Japanese style eyeshadow at your drugstore. When Maybelline ventured into their Eye Studio Collection in late 2009 beginning of 2010 it was a step in a new direction for drugstore eyeshadows.
Let’s face it, can you name a ton of eyeshadows that you’d buy at the drugstore that are actually GOOD?
I can’t sadly. Most are chalky and sadly, lacking. However, drugstore makeup is slowly making small steps towards successfully creating wearable makeup but with those steps comes a huge jack up in price too but I don’t mind, I’ll pay more if I’m getting a quality product.
Eye Studio Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads from Maybelline were a step in the right direction. Some folks hated these, I personally loved them….speaking as a fan of Japanese brands these are some of the closet style of shadow formula you’ll get in North America that mimic the formula and texture of an Asian eyeshadow purchased in an Asian Drugstore abroad…!
The new range of Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow are pretty much spot on the same concept. These released earlier this year in the UK and they finally popped up on our shores a few short months ago.
Are they any good?
Today is the best day to review 100% Pure Luminous Primer Vitamins + Antioxidants with Resveratrol because…it’s on sale!
100% Pure is selling it at 50% for the next 48 Hours so it’s a mere $13 bucks (originally $26) at www.100percentpure.com.
Let’s take a look and see what I think of it!
Some girls are Shiseido Maquillage girls, some girls aren’t. I happen to be in the “aren’t group”. I dunno why but I’ve never fully embraced the Shiseido Maquillage line.
Shiseido Maquillage is a sub-brand from Shiseido available in Japanese drugstores (and a few select Asian countries as well). Quality is on par with counter makeup and the brand has a very large cult following however I’ve always dabbled my time away with other Shiseido sub-brands like Majolica Majorca.
Recently, my interest did get piqued again (it does sometimes with Maquillage) and I decided to haul some of the new Essence Glamour Rouges.
Let’s take a look!
And now it’s time to say good-bye…!
To the Stila Beach Girl Palettes.
It’s been a nice ride this Summer and I really enjoyed spending it with the Stila Beach Girls but I guess this closes the door until Stila releases the next round of palettes. I guess we don’t have to wait too long as the release of the Find Your Magic Palette for Holiday 2011 might be a prelude of what’s to come!
Let’s take a look at the Stila Living the Life in Laguna!
My best friend swears to the makeup Gods that conditioner is the way to the smoothest, softest shave evers.
I prefer a King of Shaves or EOS Shave Cream.
Both cheapie picks for the softest, smoothest shave ever!
