Sleek Makeup Arabian Nights i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

Sleek Makeup Arabian Nights i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette ($11.99 for 0.36 oz.) is a limited edition set of twelve eyeshadows in shades of “deep tones of green, blue and gold.” The i-Divine Eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “super-pigmented [and] long-lasting.” I think this is a worthwhile palette at this price point; there are a few misses, but there are enough hits to make it compelling. If you typically use primer, I think some of the misses will be more manageable. When Sleek nails it, they REALLY nail it, but when they miss, it’s usually by a fair amount, and I usually find their satin/matte shades to be a bit drier, which results in sheerer color payoff compared to their more shimmery shades that are usually amazing.

LORAC Navy Skinny Palette

LORAC Navy Skinny Palette This has now sold out online (it was still up yesterday, boo!!), so your only opportunity will be to see if you can find it in stores. While I liked the Nude palette, I found the Navy one to be rather powdery, particularly when I actually tried to use it and apply the colors to my lid. They just didn’t adhere well, and instead, had a tendency to look both powdery and uneven, plus they didn’t wear as long as the other palette did.

LORAC Nude Skinny Palette

LORAC Nude Skinny Palette ($15.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a set of seven shades of warm-toned neutrals ranging from pale beige to reddish-brown. This has now sold out online (it was still up yesterday, boo!!), so your only opportunity will be to see if you can find it in stores. I quite liked this one, so if you can find it, I think it’s well-worth considering for the wallet-friendly $15 price tag. I’ll be posting about the Navy palette tomorrow (which is also sold out online, sigh!), but a note in advance: not as impressive.

Milani Bella Pink, Bella Violet, Bella Purple Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow ($3.99 for 0.05 oz.) is a new powder eyeshadow formula that’s available in thirty shades. I thought I’d try these three next, as purples are notorious for being difficult to do well, so I wanted to see if Milani’s newest formula could rise to the occasion.

Round-up: Makeup Geek Blushes Thoughts & Comparisons

Makeup Geek Blushes ($9.99 for 0.15 oz.) are a much welcomed addition to the world of blush!  The formula is amazing, and the price point just makes it all the sweeter, but these perform just as well as any other A-rated blush at $30+ (that’s why price doesn’t impact the ratings, so an A product is an A product, whether $5 or $50!).  The texture is phenomenal, as they’re soft, smooth, and blendable but not powdery.  They have good color payoff, wear well, and are all-around worth considering if you’re in need of blush.  I’d like to see a few deeper shades for darker skin tones, as well as a couple of contour and highlighting shades, added to the range in the future.
