Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow Swatches (x10)

I’ve been meaning to review Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) at some point (I think I initially bought only a few shades, but I recently picked up several more when all the retailers were doing 25% off beauty). They’re a replacement for the original Eye Tints, which I generally loved, though the formula didn’t feel the same to me (more watery than velvety). The range includes quite a few shades, but I’ve only purchased 10 at this time...

NARS Bronzing Collection Swatches

NARS Bronzing Collection debuted for summer with updated bronzer packaging, new shades, and a few additional products across the Laguna colorway, plus two new Powerchrome Pigments and an rose gold gloss. By touch and initial application, the regular Bronzing Powder range still seemed updated–smoother, more velvety. There is a fourth shade (Quirimba), which is the deepest of the Matte Bronzing Powder range, but it is not yet available on either NARS or Sephora, so I w...

Becca Ignite Liquid Highlighter Swatches

Just in time for summer, Becca Ignite Liquid Highlighter ($38.00) is here. There are five shades (though Ulta also shows another limited edition shade) available, and it seems like it will debut at retailers on April 4th (I bought mine directly from Becca). Two things I can note: 1) they’re significantly more pigmented and intense compared to the previous liquid highlighter formula, and 2) they are moderately to heavily scented (have to do more verification here). ...

Natasha Denona Retro + Mini Bloom Swatches

Here are swatches of the just-released Natasha Denona Retro Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00) and Natasha Denona Bloom Mini Highlighter Blush ($19.00). Based on how Sephora lists them, they seem to be permanent… Heads up: Galaxia in this palette is quite different from the version in the Star palette! New Natasha Denona! Gallery Options Produc...

Melt Cosmetics Rust Collection Swatches

Melt Cosmetics Rust Collection is short ‘n’ sweet launch that includes an eyeshadow palette and gel liner. The eyeshadow palette is an extension of the original Rust stack (which included five shades), which was similar but a few shades had more pigmentation so they appeared a bit richer/deeper at times (and Rott is upgraded, and slightly different as a result, per the brand). The collection launched on the brand’s website a week or so ago, and they’re temporarily sh...

Revlon Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick ($9.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, ultra-glossy range of lipstick that is available in 25 shades. Per the brand, the formula is supposed to have “major payoff” that “doesnt feather or bleed” with a “glassy” finish (note: one shade is clear on purpose, which is Sparkling Quartz!).

Charlotte Tilbury Eye Colour Magic Collection Swatches

Launched last week, the Charlotte Tilbury Eye Colour Magic Collection includes four eyeshadow quads and four dual-ended pencil eyeliners. Per the brand’s website, the pencil duos seem to be permanent along with Copper Charge but the other three quads are limited edition. I know that Nordstrom will be launching the collection on March 26th. Green Lights is exactly the same as The Rebel (2020), which released a little while ago — no idea why they wouldn’t just use the ...

ColourPop x Mulan Collection Swatches

Here are swatches of the ColourPop x Mulan Collection, which launches March 19th at 10AM PT. The collection includes a palette, two blushes, and three lip products. Per the back of the palette, one shade (Be Swift) is marked as not for use around the eyes (I believe it’s a Pressed Glitter). Here is a higher-res version of the . Looking at this, and assuming my eyes didn’t cross while reading it, “Like a Girl” (along with Brave and Legacy) have PET glitter in the...

MAC Eyeshadows for Spring 2020 – Swatches

There are 36 “new” MAC Eyeshadow Singles ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.), which feature a “revamped” formula. Some shades you’ll recognize as long-time, permanent shades, while a few are new, most have appeared in some form in the past as a limited edition shade (or permanent within a palette). All of the new shades are also available in pan-only form for $7.00 each. P.S. — I didn’t realize that Cobalt was also a new shade (it was way further in the core range), so I didn’t b...

MAC Dazzleshadow Extreme Swatches

MAC Dazzleshadow Extreme ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a new, permanent formula that is available in 10 shades (I bought all 10 but my order was missing one shade). It’s supposed to have an “extreme molten metallic” finish with “12-hour staying power.” They’re also available as pan refills for $9.00; I had to purchase two shades in the pot-form because those shades aren’t yet in stock in pan form.
