New Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Swatches & Review

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek has six new eyeshadows out and I’ve got photos and swatches for ya.

Three of them are mattes and three are shimmery. I think all are pretty wearable, even though a couple are blue! Everyone can wear blue, you just have to find the shade that’s right for you! I made a rhyme. 😉

Make Up For Ever Black Tango for Fall 2012 Swatches & Review

Make Up For Ever Black Tango

Would you believe I took these photos on August 31st and am, just now posting the review? Yes, because of my *hiatus* I am still catching up on goodies for fall 2012. Bear with me. :)

Make Up For Ever has a new (ok let’s be honest, it’s not really new anymore) palette out called Black Tango. It’s limited edition and features four exclusive new shades of their Aqua Cream eye shadows.

It comes in a really sleek looking red and black palette with a pretty lace fan print. Inside you open it up to a large mirror with a nice black lace-like border, four Aqua Cremes in their own pots with lids, and a dual-ended flat nylon brush.

OPI Euro Centrale Collection for Spring/Summer 2013 Official Photos & Information

OPI Announces the Launch of Euro Centrale for Spring/Summer 2013.

Classic meets contemporary with Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013. Celebrating a region where history meets modern design, the collection’s twelve new nail lacquers offer a mixture of glamorous metallic hues; playful bright shades in periwinkle, aqua and pink; and creamy blues in indigo, midnight and aubergine.

“Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania make up an exciting new fashion hotspot,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.

Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”

Euro Centrale by OPI includes the following shades:

  • – Blue and violet are dancing partners in this glittery combo.
  • OPI…Eurso Euro – This deep blue cream is very continental.
  • Suzi’s Hungary AGAIN! – Thank goodness there are zero calories in this warm and yummy pink!
  • You’re Such a BudaPest – If I let you borrow this periwinkle-purple, will you go away?
  • Can’t Find My Czechbook – I hope you take credit, because I must have this aqua!
  • My Paprika is Hotter than Yours! – Get the extinguisher…this fiery red is sizzling!
  • Hands Off My Kielbasa! – Get your own…this bronzy tan is all mine!
  • OY–Another Polish Joke! – So this shimmery-gold walks into a bar…
  • A Woman’s Prague-ative – I’m changing this shimmery copper for…never mind!
  • Vant to Bite My Neck? – You know you want to…wear this deep eggplant.
  • I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw – Be seen in this deep midnight blue.
  • My Vampire is Buff – Creamy, pale and nude…just how I like my vampires.
