OVERALL, Chill is a collection I imagine most people will pass on. With the holidays being a time where most are often buying gifts for others and thus spending less on themselves, I just don’t think Chill has any wow-factor to get you excited. The Penultimate Liner is definitely worth taking a look at, and I think this is the only stand-out product (just because it’s completely new) of the launch. The eyeshadows are subdued and cool-toned without a lot of color; the lipglasses are also fairly cool-toned and swatch well, but they aren’t nearly as pigmented on lips (based on my trial). It’s not a bad collection, but with Dame Edna just around the corner, Brunette, Blonde, & Redhead in January, and then Hello Kitty looming in the horizon–I think people would rather wait for one, two, or all three of those known upcoming launches.
I really, really liked this look! I’ve been totally loving more neutral looks, but I can’t let myself forget about all the beautiful colors I have in my palettes. If I had any holiday parties to go to this year, I think I’d do something similar to this!
How’s everyone doing today? What have you got planned for today? I spent all day at my mom’s house yesterday, so I have some catching up to do today here at my apartment. But hopefully I’ll have some time to maybe wrap a few gifts today
