In this series of beauty & personal care product finds - Super Cute!- I'll be telling you about products which have innovative, artistic, fantasy, child-like, vintage and/or retro themes and an "irresistible" quality to them!
These make perfect little splurges and gifts for yourself or for the girly girl (or someone youthful in spirit!) in your life too.
To kick off the F/W 2010 NY Fashion Week season, Lianne Farbes of the TheMakeupGirl beauty blog and Paul Baranda of Beyondbeautybasics.com hosted an amazing soiree for the beauty industry called The Media Mixer. At the event, beauty brands, bloggers, beauty editors, beauty PR firms and everyone in-between, mingled and had a great time!
The goody bag we all received at the party was stuffed full of lots of new goodies from some of my favorite brands, which I'll be filling you in on over the next few weeks. However, the first one I latched on to - and had to share with all of you was this new limited edition Stila Jewel Eyeshadow Palette!
Not only is the packaging adorable (Stila is still one of the best at creating memorable, "girly" packaging for their products), but all four shades are winners. The sparkling black, champagne, pink and deep eggplant purple shades give a luminous, beautiful sheen and color to the eyelid. I tried them both wet and dry and absolutely loved the shades, which will also work on all skin tones.
The texture and glitter in the shadows are pretty and tasteful. The black shade in particular is a real bombshell because the way it reflects on the eye, it appears almost wet/gleaming. The shadows are fairly small (about the size of a US penny), but have very good color payoff.
There are so many creative ways you can wear this palette as well. I tried pairing the shadows with glittery eyeliner, and over a cream shadow in a complimentary shade for even more depth and intensity. Used wet, I also got a beautiful effect from layering the pink and golden/champagne shades together.
This is the perfect palette for any evening event, big date or just when you want to really make a statement with your eye makeup - without going overboard. Click now and order- remember, this one is limited edition! - RLB
