Items of Intrigue, Vol. 008


Items of Intrigue, Vol. 008

I love, love learning about what products grab your attention! It helps me figure out what I should spend time reviewing (and what NOT to!). Here are five things that have caught my attention recently…

  • NARS Kudoku Kabuki Lip Set ($125.00) is a limited edition holiday set that combines art and beauty; it’s certainly something to buy more as a keepsake than as a really practical way to wear lip color.
  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow ($24.00) look really fun and the design kind of reminds me of the Chroma Eyeshadows MAC did eons ago (which I have no experience with; I have only seen photos of them!).
  • Laura Mercier Rose Rednezvous Face Illuminator ($42.00) looks gorgeous in the pan, and I’m wondering ho wmuch of that metallic sheen goes through the product or if a lot of it is just an overlay.
  • Make Up For Ever Highline Palette ($45.00) looks like a fun fall palette! I’m curious to see how the quad packaging functions.
  • Sachajuan Volume Powder ($32.00) is a powder-based spray to help give volume but also seems to act a bit like a dry shampoo? Hmm. Has anyone tried this?

Sunday Link Love, Volume #073

Happy Sunday!

Have you read any good books lately?  I’m always looking for things to add to my reading list, though I warn you, I only read stories with happy endings 🙂

5 Shades of Aqua Eyeshadow

5 Shades of Aqua Eyeshadow

It’s hard to find a really awesome aqua eyeshadow, because aqua tends to be a lighter color–almost pastel–that they can be sheer and/or chalky (or just powdery). Sometimes they lean blue, other times they lean green.  I wouldn’t call this the best of aqua, because there are many more aqua shades I’ve swatched!

What’s your favorite aqua-hued eyeshadow?
