  1. That cheek palette look absolutely stunning!! I want it so bad!

  2. Oooh, I love the case, it’s so sleek and pretty. And so is the signature print, very cute :-)

  3. This looks like a spring collection to me and pastels are positively vile on me.  My eyes are not even attracted or drawn to these products whatsoever.

  4. Oh, and I have to add another comment..  Why these pastels and such stark BLACK or intense BROWN.  I can see someone really really fair or really deep skinned, (if the colour payoff is there) pulling this off.

    Ack Nacho cheese not for me! Reminds me of the Vera blushes for MAC although I like ladybugs. These imprints seem so silly and gimmicky and I automatically assume the quality isn’t as good. Those MAC graffiti things in particular really hurt my senses.

    Additionally, and I understand if I am somewhat lambasted, why does everything need HEARTS on it? I mean we could use more cool anatomically correct heart shapes perhaps but that Victoria’s Secret aesthetic should stay right. there.

    Hmm…I already have an ELF bronzer that’s just like that face powder sans the blush quadrant.  And the eye palettes don’t strike me as very versatile.  Not familiar with the brand, the quality might be great, but this collection doesn’t seem very exciting.

    I wasn’t going to comment but I seem to be a bit fixated on the language they used: “Trish’s extruded formula enhances eyes with high-definition color from soft to rich to dazzling.”  “Extrude” usually means to force out, to stick out, to push out.  It usually pertains to structural things and physical, dimensional shapes. So how does the fact that a *formula* physically extrudes (which in and of itself doesn’t make sense when it comes to scientific formulas for skin or beauty products) relate to enhancing eye colour with soft, rich, dazzling shades? It’s linguistic gobbledegook and makes no sense!! Clearly, someone put some random words together to try to sound high-faluting and fancy. Sorry. Never mind. It’s probably irrelevant. The OCD lawyer in me is having some linguistic issues. Carry on.

The product may extrude, but a scientific formula? And the fact that something’s shape may stick out doesn’t have automatically mean that it will have a heightened colour effect. It’s all linguistic gobbledegook and makes no sense!! Clearly, someone put some random words together to try to sound high-faluting and fancy, and it’s so annoying. Sorry. Never mind.

    • Kafka You go, Salomé!  We need someone to champion some form of truth in advertising.  Extrude..my a$$…  *giggle*..

        Well, it’s nice to see I’m not the *only* freak when it comes to linguistics. At least I’m in good company.

      Makes me think of polyps, priapism, goiters? Which in turn makes me think of Seinfeld. Complete awkward misuse of the word.

  10. Not a huge fan of the looks like this. Just seems…boring? Done already? I’d never be able to get the lilac trio to work — or I’d just never use the black. 

    • annedreshfield The black completely confounds me as well with such a delicate duo of colours.

      • wwendalynne You’d have to tap it in the palette once, and then blend for about 10 minutes! Or maybe ONLY use it as a liner? Oye. Seems really silly.

          I pair black with paler colors like this often, but I can see where the average makeup user may have difficulties. I have dark hair & *very* dark eyes, and my personal aesthetic allows me to pull it off, but when there are only two options for the trios, I can’t see very many women reaching for these.
