Almay Intense i-Color Smoky i-Kit

Almay Intense i Color Smoky i Kit 1

Almay Intense i-Color Smoky i-Kit is a new range of easy to apply eyeshadows for creating a smoky eye look in three steps that suitable for your own unique eye shade. Again, with brands telling me what shades I should or shouldn’t wear! Grrr! I purchased one of these, and hell I live dangerous because I think I got one meant for green eyes, GASP! Could I be arrested by the makeup police for that?!

No but seriously….

I have no great love for Almay but these really do look like intense eyeshadows with nice color payoff! Haven’t played yet but will review when I do.

Almay Smart Balance Pressed Powder

The new Almay Smart Balance Press Powder comes in three “custom” color combinations. This is a pressed powder with what appears to be a base of transparent white powder and tiny dotted layers of color. Supposedly the powder adapts to your skin tone for a perfect fit. I’ve been trying the Light/Medium version and so far I actually kinda like it. It doesn’t have a ton of coverage but it brightens up the face rather nicely.

Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup

Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup

Here’s the new Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup display that I recently reviewed for you. It’s such an exciting product but a damn shame it fails to work.

The powder has a cool, refreshing feel which is quite lovely but zero coverage after I tried it.

Anyone see or try it as of yet?

Do share!

Milani Melange Infusion of Colors Marble and Milani Metallic Baked Eyeshadows

Late Winter, early Spring 2011 Collections are popping up in drugstores. I’ve been sneaking through CVS, Harmons, and Walgreens and seeing all sorts of goodies. I took some photos of various items and will be reviewing them all soonish but for now I thought you’d enjoy seeing and hearing about some of them.

Milani has a total of 14 (don’t quote me on that number) new eyeshadows out for Spring 2011. I confirmed with a rep that these are indeed set for a Spring release and part of the Spring Collection however my local CVS already has them out and available.

I blogged an earlier picture of the shadows I hauled which you can check out here.

Milani Melange Infusion of Colors Marble and Milani Metallic Baked Eyeshadows are a redesign of the standard Milani Runway Eyes Wet/Dry Eyeshadows.

I haven’t tried them yet but I will say some of the shades are stunning.

I’ll have swatches and a review up soon!

Feel free to tell me if you seen them at your local drugstore and if possible list which store, city, and town as it might help others in your location find them!
