I’ve been wanting to try something from the KJAER WEIS for a moment now and I finally got my paws on an Eye Shadow. The one shown here is called Pretty Purple and it really is pretty.

I’m such a sucker for shadows in the stick form and these new ones from the JOUER line are right up my alley. They are called Crème Eyeshadow Crayons and come in 5 colors of creamy color and come with a built-in sharpener in the end. Love when companies think of this small but very important detail!

I’ve heard people say a shadow is a shadow is a shadow but it really isn’t. I have had some last for hours without even wearing a primer and some dissolve out of sight as soon as I am finishing up application on both eyes.
One falling in the middle of these extremes is Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Kalahari ($18 @ weseebeauty.com) from WE SEE BEAUTY’s New Medieval Collection. Described as a medium cappuccino brown with yellow undertones, the color is a very good basic to have in your collection. This one gets a B+ from me.

Are you afraid of bright colors for lips and eyes? I almost am. I mean, I like to look at them … a lot! But to wear them, I sometimes look too much and not touch enough. But I did decide to stop that and dive head-first into the latest from NARS. Their Duo Eye Shadow from the Spring 2013 Collection are pretty bold, at least when it comes to Mad Mad World.

With the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year, Pantone 17-5641 Emerald, comes some new products from the SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE collaboration. It’s quite exciting to see some of the products they are putting out to highlight the shade. Let’s investigate two of them now!
I have long had a saying that when it comes to makeup, if it’s long wear, I’m there! And so I was excited to try BENEFIT’s new Longwear Powder Shadows, from the Color … By Benefit collection hitting shelves in March.
These colors come in three different finishes, depending on your mood: matte, satin and sheen. So how did these perform overall compared to yesterdays cream versions? Click after the jump!
BENEFIT just put out some new eye shadows called Creaseless Cream Shadows in their latest collection coming up in early March called Color … By Benefit. Inspired by the Art Deco design of the Golden Gate Bridge, the collection gives us some eye shadows (cream and powder), lip glosses and lipsticks. Let’s take a look at the Creaseless Cream Shadows first. They are available in 12 colors but while the packaging is brand new, this product isn’t. They put out a version of a few of these back in 2009, so some are new and some are a relaunch.
New: Bikini-tini (oyster pink), No Pressure! (rich fawn), My Two Cents (polished copper), Always A Bridesmade (pearly lavender), Blue My Mind (arctic blue), Bronze Have More Fun (antique bronze), Holy Smokes! (smoldering charcoal).
Relaunch: R.S.V.P. (sparkling champagne), Birthday Suit (brushed chrome), Skinny Jeans (pretty pewter)

I guess this is going to be the week of CHANEL by featuring quite a few of their Spring 2013 Collection here. The latest I’m loving is the Quadra Eye Shadow in Raffinement. One basic, one highlighter and two contour colors? Perfect!! Wanna see more pictures and swatches? Click after the jump!
I’ve always been a fan of the HARD CANDY line and even had their Eye Shadow Quads in the Hall of Fame for many years (they are discontinued and so I had to remove them). They were one of the first lines to really go deep into eye shadow and turn out some really unique shades. So I was really excited to hear about their Top Ten Eye Shadow Collection.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER line of Fall 2012 products is not disappointing. Take this Black Tango Palette, for example, it was only a matter of time before they housed a few of the Aqua Cream Shadows in a palette and I am simply loving this one.
