Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Eye Pencils Set

I’m a long-time fan of the 24/7 Eye Pencils, because they have just enough creaminess for easy gliding across the lash line but not so much that it results in smudging or running. It has a large color range, and they last quite awhile. When I’m doing a look, I often reach for this formula, because it wears all day for me.

bareMinerals The Elements Eyeshadow Quad

Coming in October, bareMinerals The Elements Eyeshadow Quad ($30.00 for 0.17 oz.) will debut, and it features four shades: Air, Fire, Earth, and Water. bareMinerals’ pressed eyeshadow formula contains SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that gives the shadow a “creamy, silky smooth” texture with “seamless blendability” and “stay-true color.” It’s supposed to be long-wearing whether worn alone or with primer–you shouldn’t see any creasing or fading. I’ve tested various combinations of shades from the duos and quads, and I’ve happily achieved ten hours of solid wear without a primer underneath. For a review of the packaging, please read my original review.

Chanel Gris Exquis Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Gris Exquis Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a limited edition single eyeshadow described as “an elegant dove grey.” The Soft Touch formula is finely milled and can be applied wet or dry. Gris Exquis has a soft, silky feel against the skin, and the softness enables it to apply smoothly and blend out easily. It’s a satiny medium-dark gray–it doesn’t lean blue or brown. I like how it doesn’t venture into charcoal territory, but it’s also not too light that it starts looking silvery. theBalm’s Inspirational looks more gunmetal-like and has a more metallic finish. Inglot #339 comes the closest but almost looks a bit purpled around the edges in comparison.
