e.l.f. for Fall 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Elf Flawless Eyeshadow

e.l.f. has some new makeup out this fall and the shades aren’t really your typical “fall look”.

Some of these items are really new and I don’t think they’re out yet. Forgive me for not knowing some of the names, they weren’t labeled and I can’t find them online yet,

Take a peek.

Urban Decay The Vice Palette Swatches, Photos & Review

Urban Decay The Vice Palette

Fall is officially here and Urban Decay has a new palette called The Vice Palette to tempt your wallet. Is it too soon to start buying holiday gifts for yourself? 😉

The Vice Palette features twenty eyeshadows and not only that, these are NEW shades! Yup, these haven’t been released in any other palettes. Finally!

The palette features a great range of brights to neutrals and mattes to shimmers. It features a gigantic mirror inside as well as a dual-ended Good Karma Shadow and Crease Brush. The palette opens slowly with the push of a button.

Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi

Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick Backstage Bambi

New and exclusive to Sephora are the Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipsticks.

These lipstick/lip gloss hybrids come in four new shades:

  • Forever & Never – Shimmery light bronze
  • Backstage Bambi – Bright pink
  • Adora – Bright red
  • Hellbent – Deep red

The texture of these initially is like a thick wet gloss. But then they dry quickly and appear more like a lipstick. A metallic “foiled” lipstick. I thought Backstage Bambi was going to be perfect for me because I love hot pink lips. However the finish left me feeling a little more 1985 than I prefer…

Stila Fall 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Stila Fall 2012

Stila’s fall 2012 collection includes some bold lip shades and a new limited edition icy-white liner.

Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick’s are some of my favorite items from the brand. These amazing liquid lipsticks have a full coverage lipstick look, but apply like a gloss. Then they dry to a totally budge-proof color. They do not bleed or flake for many, many hours. They can feel a wee bit dry sometimes depending on the state my lips are in when I apply them. They are infused with vitamin E and avocado oils to help moisturize.

Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner now comes in a limited edition shade perfect for the colder days ahead (really it seems like a winter shade to me) called Empress. Empress is a bright white with very subtle shimmer.
