OVERALL, Ungaro is almost like a relief from the darker, more intense fall and winter launches we have been seeing lately. I suppose if I had to describe it in a word, I would say natural. I picked up both of the CCBs as well as Mineral eyeshadow (which I didn’t think would appeal to me).
What did you haul?

GOLD FEVER also launched today at Nordstrom locations. It’s pretty much a launch of products that already exist in the permanent line, so I’m not doing a review, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll be happy to answer
OVERALL, Cremesheens offer a good range of shades and hues, but definitely don’t offer replacements for all the amplified cremes being discontinued. The texture is smooth, but they’re not overly creamy or pigmented. Of course, some are more intense than others, so your mileage may vary depending on your natural lip’s pigmentation. Ultimately, I went in with high hopes, because I love lipsticks, but I wasn’t particularly impressed. None of the colors grabbed me in way that made me go, “OMG I WILL DIE WITHOUT IT!” and the texture wasn’t as creamy as I’d like. These don’t do a lot of sliding around once you apply them, which IS a good thing, though.

** Blue Zone and Ocean 2 are mixed up in the photos! Sorry
OVERALL, the eyeshadow suites were disappointing because too many of them had chalky textures, which I just know won’t work out well for me. I picked up two, one because I liked it a lot (Team Violets), and the other because the colors weren’t like ones I already had (Blue Zone). The liners were lovely – all rich and intensely pigmented, with a good variety of colors to choose from. I see myself going back to collect more of them, but I wanted to see how they wear throughout the day first. I asked about waterline safety, and I was told these are like powerpoints and aren’t waterline safe because they shrink. Take that for what you will!

OVERALL, Cult of Cherry seems like a launch about the lips, despite having three quads. There are just so many lip products to choose from, I couldn’t keep my eyes off of the choices! Even when I was swatching the quads, I kept looking elsewhere. Personally, the quads don’t get me that excited – I guess they don’t seem as amazing as some of the lip colors do. I love the coppery color in Spiced Chocolate, and Shadowy Lady does nothing for me. Tempting is pretty to look at, but I’m not overly enthused.
