L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon l Spring 2015 Collections

L'Oreal finally jumps on the Eye Shadow Crayon bandwagon!
Countless other brands (including: Milani, Urban Decay, NYX, Rimmel) have already released some sort of jumbo eye shadow crayon and now L'Oreal is joining the party.

I don't know the price exactly but I have heard they are around $6.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond.  I have not seen them in any store yet but I am sure they will be everywhere soon enough.  They are launching 8 shades, which range from from neutral colors to a vibrant blue and purple.

These say that they are a 2 in 1 shadow and liner.  They have a thin tip for eyeliner and you can use the side of the tip for shadow.  They also claim to have up to 24 hours of wear time. (though who really wears makeup that long anyways?).

Shades include:

  • Everlasting Gold
  • Enduring Rose
  • Impression Brown
  • Forever Taupe
  • Always Purple
  • Always Aqua
  • Resilient Green
  • Midnight Charcoal


I defiantly think I will pick up a few of these new shadow crayons.  As far as eye shadow crayons go I only own the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils, but I am really curious on trying these new ones (and maybe a few other drugstore ones) and seeing how they compare.

What do you think? Into eye shadow crayons or over them?  Let me know in the comments!

Sonia Kashuk Holiday 2014 Collection

Hey everyone!
Today I have another holiday collection for you guys! This time it is from Sonia Kashuk and they are a brand sold at Target with makeup, skincare, and brushes.  The prices are a bit more on the higher end as far as drugstore makeup prices go, but the quality is worth it.


This year Sonia Kashuk's Holiday Collection includes: 2 makeup items, 2 brush sets, 3 skincare items(2 sets), and one limited edition makeup bag.  I am assuming everything is limited edition, but feel free to correct me if I am wrong.


 The collection includes:
The brushes in this set include: a domed powder brush, flat top multipurpose brush, angled duo fiber multipurpose brush, foundation brush, eye shadow brush, blending brush, angled duo fiber crease brush, domed pencil brush, synthetic pointed eye liner brush, and lash/brow groomer.
                                              
This palate includes five shades of nude lip colors, including: blush nude, beige nude, pink nude, peachy nude, and mauve nude.  It comes in a gold compact with a mirror and a long handled lip brush for application.  The palette has warm and cool nudes and ranges from, " rosey and pink to traditional nude in a satin shine finish, perfect for any skin tone."
This palette seems to have four different shades of eye shadow, including: a matte black, a shimmery brown, a metallic gold, and a creamy white.  The palette includes a mirror and seems to have the same gold packaging as the lip palette.
This set includes four brushes: a powder brush, duo fiber shader brush, angled eye brush, and a smudge brush.  These brushes also come with a carrying bag.  The bag is black with gold zippers trimmed in white and black tassels.
This set includes travel size versions of the Purple Seductia body butter, shower gel, and eau de toilette.  The Purple Seductia scent is one of pomegranate, rose and patchouli.  This set is perfect if you like the scent, it is a great way to sample the different products.
This set includes travel size versions of the Red Promisia body butter, eau de toilette, ad the crème body wash.  The Red Promisia scent is sandalwood, jasmine and vanilla.  Just like the Purple Holiday Seductia Travel Set (what a mouth full) it is a perfect way to sample different products in this scent.
This is a very rich and moisturizing body treatment that melts into the skin and adds a "discreet shimmer and sheen on skin for a subtle glow."  "The formula nourishes skin with Shea Butter, Edelweiss Flower Extract and White Tea Extract. Sweet Almond Protein softens and repairs dry skin while Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide, from the exotic Indian healing plant, softens skin and forms a protective moisture barrier to lock moisture into the skin."  It is paraben-free and is suppose to enhance skin tone and neutralize skin's imperfections.
This bag is black with gold zippers trimmed with white and tassels.  It is made out of polyester and the inside is lined.  If you are someone who likes the 1920s or flapper girls, you might like this bag.  It is a very simple bag but has that flapper girl flare with the tassels.

New! VENUS: The Grunge Palette l Lime Crime

Hey everyone!
If you haven't noticed I am posting twice a week on Monday and Thursdays!  New posts will be up on both days every week!  Moving on....
 
If you didn't know Lime Crime has released a new palette, VENUS: The Grunge Palette, with 8 "game changing" eye shadows.  These shadows are full sized and described as, "unconventional new-trals and rusty reds."  This palette includes a mirror (which is always a bonus) and is $42 on the Lime Crime website (currently out of stock).
 





 
   The shadows included are:
  • VENUS: The color of bruised fruit (velvet matte)
  • SHELL: Opalescent shell-pink (glow)
  • AURA: Golden ivory (glow)
  • CREATION: Rusty brown (matte)
  • ICON: Dirt brown (matte)
  • REBIRTH: The color of an over-ripe nectarine (matte)
  • DIVINE: Dusty stone (matte)
  • MUSE: Deep burgundy red (matte)



 
I haven't actually tried anything from the brand Lime Crime yet (though I want to) so I don't know personally how good their shadows are. This palette looks very pretty, though I wouldn't say this is a must have palette, but if you like more warm toned colors and red toned shadows this might be something to check out.

Let me know in the comments if you have this palette (or planning to get it) and if you are interested in it.

According to the description on the Ulta website this palette contains, "contains 14 luxe, antiaging, silk-infused eye shadows that are all matte, but can transform into pearl shades with the tap of a brush, thanks to the Transforming Pearl shade."  These seem like really natural shades that you could use for a variety of looks. The palette is $42 at Ulta.

It is your anti-aging lip serum, hydrating lip conditioner, color correcting lip tone reviver and sheer color in one crème gloss. This trio drenches your lips in amazing hydration plus gives them a beautiful your lips but better flush of color."
This set is $39.50 and you get three shades which are: Snow Bunny, Joy To The World and Under The Mistletoe.




I am trying to make this a series, Holiday Sets 2014, showing you guys what sets have come out for the holidays this year.  I hope you liked this and let me know which brands and sets you want to see next.
