Hello Makeup Geeks! It’s time for April’s HOT new products. Every month I give you a round-up of all the newest and hottest products on the market. My hope is that this will help you narrow down your shopping list and aid you in deciding which products are best for you. Enough blabbing, let’s get started on the HOT new products. :-)
Kat Von D Monarch and Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palettes
Constructed of a sturdy cardboard, both the Monarch and Chrysalis palettes are beautifully designed featured around a butterfly theme. The Chrysalis palette contains purple hues, as the Monarch palette is filled with beautiful warm tones. Each palette contains 12 shades with a mixture of matte, pearl, and shimmer finishes. Each shadow is creamy, pigmented, and blends like a dream. These palettes are a great value and I would highly recommend both of these.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick
These lipsticks come in 6 different shades which ranging from a vivid orchid to a pale nude that dry to a matte finish. Much like a lip gloss, each lipstick comes in a squeeze tube with a slanted tip for precise and easy application. Creamy and smooth these lipsticks are extremely pigmented and long lasting. Apart from being a bit drying, these lip glosses are a great deal and worth splurging on.
Too Faced Pardon My French Set
Inspired by my favorite city, this travel set includes a 9 shade eye shadow palette, travel size Shadow Insurance eye primer, Lash Injection Extreme Volume Tubing Mascara, and the Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black, all enclosed in a cute travel bag. Ideal for traveling, these eyeshadows are contained in a sturdy tin container. Although the packaging is great for traveling,, the quality of the shadows is not what you would usually expect from Too Faces as they are extremely sheer and lacking pigmentation. Unless your sold on the packaging, I would pass on this set.
Sephora 10 Shades of Samba Waterproof Eyeliner Set
These waterproof eyeliners come in 10 vibrant shades. Each smudge- proof eyeliner is highly pigmented with a long wear time. Breaking down to roughly $5.00 a piece, these eyeliners are a great value and I would recommend trying these.
NARS recently reformulated their lipgloss and sent them to me to try. With 30 different shades in their collection, your bound to find something that suits you! Each lip gloss includes a doe foot wand for easy application, as the formula is pigmented and smooth without being sticky. Although they are a bit on the pricey side, these glosses are worth the money!
Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color
The Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color eye shadows come in 21 beautiful colors. Sheer to start these eyeshadows can be built up to the desired intensity, or simply used as an eyeshadow base. Similar to the Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows, these shadows are a bit pricey for their lack in quality.
Pixel Lip Tint
The Pixel Lip Tints glide on smoothly using the perfect doe foot wand for precision and ease of use. These lip tints are the perfect size for dropping in your purse or makeup bag. The formula of these lip tints is thicker than other glosses, as they are intensely pigmented without being tacky or sticky. These lip tints are a steal for the price.
