Sharp from MAC’s Cult of Cherry Tempting quad has defnitely caught some buzz. While I love a good chartreuse color, it does come housed in a quad with two repromotes and one permanent color. I think the quad is cute, and it stands out, but I just don’t see myself reaching for it too often. Even if I did, I expect I would go strictly for the green or else a more neutral look just using the other three colors. So, what do you do when you LOVE the color but already have/don’t want the other colors in the quad?

Cinique’s Modern Matte is a collection focusing on matte eyes and high impact color on the lips. I am loving the new High Impact Lip Colour lipsticks – they are gorgeous, and there are so many shades to choose from. I know only a few are featured/highlighted in the actual Modern Matte collection, but there is basically a separate launch filled with these babies! I’m hoping to get to do some lip swatches later on this week, but here are some photos to hold you over.
(Pictured above are… Midnight & Night Plum Matte Shadows; Very Blush Blushwear; Red-y To Wear, Pure Posh, Go Fig, Plum Nude, Rose Spectrum, Sunset Glow High Impact Lip Colour)

Just a VERY short post, as I’m going to try to review eyeshadows and the like after I’ve attempted a look with them. Why this new policy? After being utterly disappointed in Dior’s Earth Tones quint in practice, swatches are proving they aren’t enough sometimes. Same with MAC’s mineralize eyeshadows–I just can’t seem to come around to them.
Bobbi Brown’s Metallics launches soon, and with it, metallic lipsticks and metallic eyeshadows. I know people will squeal and lust after the new metallic eyeshadows, because they’re very in line with Bobbi Brown, yet exciting and different. Pictured above are Java, Burnt Sugar, and Iced Blue. They aren’t all over-the-top, super shimmery metallic finishes; Iced Blue turns out a very icy blue indeed – almost like a white with some blue in it. It is frosty, and it definitely grabs your eye. Burnt Sugar and Java are much more subdued, with a subtle metallic finish – almost a soft sheen of reflection. I’m eager to check out the full launch when it hits stores!
And swatches of the three, plus Dusk Metallic Lip Color… Continue reading →
