Items of Intrigue, Vol. 002


Items of Intrigue, Vol. 002

These five products made me look twice this week–I’d love to hear any thoughts from you if you’ve tried any of them!

  • Dior Mitzah Panther Eyeshadow ($90.00) is sure topping the charts on pricey collector items for beauty enthusiasts. You won’t see me succumbing to it at that price (I’ve not generally into animal prints!), but inevitably, I am intrigued by it and how it actually works in real life.
  • NARS Concealer ($22.00) has relaunched (which we posted about a week or two ago), though I’ve never tried any NARS concealer (at least, not that I can remember).
  • Jo Malone Wild Bluebell ($110.00) is the latest scent for Jo Malone, and the name sounds so pretty. I’m curious to see what it smells like!
  • Kate Somerville True Lash Eye Makeup Remover ($35.00) makes me go, “Huh?” I’d like to know how anything that’s used to remove your makeup (e.g. applied and removed within a rather short time frame) is going to produce any long term results. If you use it to remove makeup, how much of it remains? The product stumps me!
  • Trish McEvoy Power of Tools ($245.00) is a full-sized brush set featuring numerous Trish McEnvoy brushes. I’m guessing it’s new in time for the holidays! I have no experience with her brushes, so I wanted to see if any of you lovely readers did! Not that I’m seriously considering purchasing it; I just don’t think I’d kick out that much change for a brush set. I’m more inclined to purchase a couple of brushes in shapes/sizes/styles I’d for sure use or would complement the brushes I already own!
