Almay Wake Up Eyeshadow + Primer Palette Almay Eyeliner + Highlighter for Summer 2012

Almay Summer 2012 products are popping up at drugstores. I found a few displays at my local Harmons which contains some new products you might want to check out.

Take a look!

Almay Wake Up Eyeliner + Highlighter $6.79

Almay Wake Up Eyeshadow + Primer Palette $6.79

Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup Foundation

Almay Blush + Highlighter

I was curious about the palettes but the colors look chalky and uneventful so I ended up skipping.

Anything you’re loving?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I saw this collection at my local CVS. I’m curious about the blush/highlighter, but I never really have luck with Almay products so I’m waiting for several reviews to pop up before I even consider buying.

    the eye shadow palette is TERRIBLE for oily lids. its pigmented and smooth but it has a greasy feel after you touch it. i returned this after just swatching it. FAIL!

      Thanks for telling us that, I was wondering about that too 🙂

    I just bought the pink and brown doubled ended highlighter/eyeliner. The highlighter side has zero pigment and pretty much blends out to a fine gold glitter, kinda like Nars Hungry Heart. The eyeliner side is super soft and pigmented though. Both smudge easily at first, but are pretty okay after they set a minute. Not sure how this will last in heat on my oily lids but I think it should be fine if I dust a powder shadow over it.

      Hi Lauren,

      I was looking for Almay products. I saw you already bought them. Do you know where I can find them in London? Thanks! Jet

    I’ve got a post coming out in a couple days (Monthly Five Fav Products) absolutely panning the Almay Wake Up palette. The colors were some of the worst I have ever experienced. I took it back to the store and got my money back. Absolutely nothing redeemable about the product AT ALL.

    I’m a huge fan of Almay Nourishing One Coat mascara and their loose face powder but the eye shadow palette really is a miss. And I so wanted the minty green shade to work but all the colors in the palette looked exactly the same on my eyes: like a translucent shimmer. I actually had the same problem with Dior shadows believe it or not. No color, just shiny lids. As I didn’t spend full price on it (coupon thankfully) I stuck it in my box of mistakes for when my boys want to make me up.
