MAC Surf The Ocean Crushed Metallic Pigment.
New this spring from Milani exclusively at CVS are Shadow Eyez 12 Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencils.
These chubby, colorful bad boys come in six shades and are long-lasting (up to 12 hours wear), water-resistant, crease-proof and paraben free. You can sharpen them with a jumbo sharpener like the Milani Duo Sharpener.
These pencils are soft, but they don’t break easily. They are easy to apply straight to your eyelid, and blend out. I do tend to work faster with pencils than a powder eyeshadow though because they do kind of “set” then they aren’t as easy to blend. I first tried blending one with my finger, which didn’t work out that great. Then another day I used a brush and that was much easier.
They come with a plastic cap on them and they recommend you shut it TIGHT so they don’t dry out.
Recently I have become obsessed with collages depicting certain colors. I figured I would start a new series of sorts showing some nail polish and/or other makeup swatches alongside some clothing and accessory items all in the same color family.
First up is blue!

e.l.f. Pigment Eyeshadows are a new product that I saw at Target not too long ago. There are ten shades in all, and three of them are brand spanking new.
The sets I saw come with the pigment and a small applicator inside. Two shades really caught my eye and they were Tropical Teal (one of the newest shades) and Golden Goddess.
