Bobbi Brown’s Night Sky Long-Wear Eye Palette ($55.00) is offered as a holiday temptation! This palette includes Rockstar and Ocean long-wear cream shadow as well as Black Ink and Thunder Storm long-wear gel eyeliner. I am a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s long-wear gel eyeliner; I find it’s a bit creamier than most gel liners, but they’re still pigmented enough to give me the darkness I crave.
Rockstar is a silvery shade with a touch of blue undertones, while Ocean is a shimmery midnight blue. Black Ink is pretty much just that – a matte black. Thunder is a dark brownish-gray color. These colors go on just the way they appear, which is great, because I love it when products are true-to-color! I haven’t yet tried out the cream shadows to see how they wear, and I imagine I’ll more likely wear them as liner than as shadows

Urban Decay’s Holiday Collection has this delightful trio of Heavy Metal Glitter Eye Liners ($36.00), which includes Glam Rock (silver), Stage Dive (teal), and Metalhead (purple). You can expect this to hit stores pretty soon, as most of their holiday sets and gifts are already available at www.urbandecay.com and Sephora.com.

Remember when I told you about HauteLook’s Stila sale? Well, I finally had a chance to swatch the products I bought from them. The four products you see above cost me $30, plus shipping, which isn’t a bad deal at all! I did a look using the trio here, too. The circular designed product is Mazatlan eyeshadow. The other three products came as a set (along with a bronzer, which isn’t pictured, because I gave it away), the “Glow Bronzing Set.” It came with Stila’s Bronze Smudgepot, Gold Glow trio eyeshadow, Brown Sugar Lip Glaze (I think…), and then the bronzer. Pretty good deal
My favorite out of the four products was the Lip Glaze, but I’m glad I got it on sale. I don’t see myself paying the $22 retail price for them otherwise! It’s very glossy and smooth, great color, and it wears well throughout the day. The two shadow trios I got were decent, but I’m not a huge fan of mineral (or mineral-like) eyeshadows… if it’s baked, I probably won’t fall in love.

Everybody should try Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. Seriously, these are amazing eye liners, because they are highly pigmented, deliciously smooth, and last all freakin’ day long. Let’s face it, finding an eye liner that sticks around until lunch time is already worth checking out, but one that really keeps on workin’ past dinner?
