Benefit Stay Don’t Stray in Medium/Deep ($26.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a liquid product that can be used an eyeshadow base to keep eyeshadow in place and keep the color looking true as well as to keep concealer in place. I reviewed the formula when it originally debuted, and as I said then and can reiterate now: it is a fantastic product. The major downside was the packaging, which Benefit had used a pump-type dispenser that dispensed far and away too much product. Like the amount you’d need to cover your face, rather than just underneath your eye or on the lid.
Dior Grand Bal False Eyelashes ($28.00/pair) come in two styles with two shades each. The first pair are adorned with either silver or gold crystals, while the second pair has three “pearls” on the outermost portion of the lash in either silver or gold. Both styles are rather dramatic, as the first pair flares out with a wide, feathery look, while the second style is thicker, heavier-lidded. These had good flex, bend, and can be trimmed easily. Dior includes glue with each pair, and the glue didn’t take too long to become tacky, and it held the lash in place well. I haven’t used these in a real look yet – only played with them on bare lids, so no pictures to share of them being worn at this time (hence, quick review).
MAC Taste Temptation Eyeshadow Quad ($40.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four shades: Look at the Eyes (light violet), Stay Sultry (deep navy), Naval (navy blue), and Carbon (intense black). It’s a limited edition palette that will launch with Taste Temptation, due for release in-stores on December 13th.
Giorgio Armani Moonlight White Palette ($88.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a face palette that contains one highlighter, two eyeshadows, and one lip color. The shades are described as, “White shimmer highlighting powder is paired with a gradation of grey eyeshadows to create a wash of color, finish with the red lip wax for a sophisticated winter style.”
