Kevyn Aucoin Electropop Pro Eyeshadow Palette

Eyes, Palettes and sets, Product reviews
The Electropop palette from Kevyn Aucoin caught my eye when I was shopping at Sephora last month. The color selection is just gorgeous. I’ve been using it a lot lately, so let’s dive in. The Details Retails for $57 at Sephora 12 pans at 1.5g/0.05 oz each Cruelty-free but not vegan (carmine is an ingredient) Limited edition, apparently… It was released for holiday 2017 but is still around There are two product claims I could find for this palette, both on the box the palette came in (the same descriptions are on Sephora's site with slight variations). First, about the palette: Dramat-eyes like a pro to create endless 3D chromatic eye looks and editorial effects - from a light, sheer shimmer to a high, metallic opaque finish. These electro chrome…

Smashbox Lipstick Palette Swatches + Giveaway

Lips, Product reviews, Videos
Smashbox came out with a limited-edition lipstick palette of 25 of their Be Legendary lipsticks, sold at Sephora for $75. Sephora describes this palette as: A limited-edition, sleek, collectible palette of 25 lipsticks that features Smashbox's most beloved creamy and matte shades, all inspired by icons. I have dozens of eyeshadow and blush palettes, but no lip palettes. This seemed like a good product to start with, especially because I don't have a lot of Smashbox products in general. Also, I'm way addicted to lipstick. Price-wise, $75 seems a little steep, but with what you're getting, it's not too bad. I was going to do the math, but Sephora's site says each lipstick in the palette is .5 oz and each full lipstick is .1 oz, but that seems way off. I think…

Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos – Seashore Frosts, Waves of White, Shady Shores, and Icy Mint

Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos – Seashore Frosts, Waves of White, Shady Shores, and Icy Mint

Eyes, Product reviews
I'm so sorry I'm late on this review---I haven't had much time to photograph swatches lately, and I wanted some time to play with the colors to decide which combinations to show you! So, I have finally been united with the rest of my new Color Tattoos--Seashore Frosts (40), Waves of White (20), Shady Shores (25), and Icy Mint (30)! If you're wondering, this means I don't own Precious Pearl (10), Cool Crush (35), and Lavish Lavender (45). [caption id="attachment_92" align="alignnone" width="300"] Seashore Frosts, Waves of White, Shady Shores, and Icy Mint[/caption] Like I mentioned in my post about Blue Paradise (15), I really just wanted to get Seashore Frosts after looking at a bunch of swatches online. But now that I have all of these, I'm glad I tried…

Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos – Blue Paradise

Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos – Blue Paradise

Eyes, Product reviews
Just like a hundred other girls, I've been on the hunt for the limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoos for summer 2013. I even enlisted my mom across the country to help me search. Finally, I found the two-shade display with Blue Paradise and Precious Pearl at Ulta. I didn't feel too strongly about Precious Pearl, but I snagged Blue Paradise (15). I really just wanted Seashore Frosts, but I couldn't resist this one. It's one of the duochrome shades: a beautiful Pacific blue with a hint of purple shimmer. I didn't remember seeing it online when I was first reading about these shades, but it's definitely part of the line. It seems that this shade and Precious Pearl are for some reason being sold together in certain displays. [caption id="attachment_13"…
