Smashbox Shades of Fame Eye Shadow Palette for Summer 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Smashbox Shades of Fame

Smashbox Shades of Fame Eye Shadow Palette is a new piece in their summer 2012 collection.

This palette contains a mini tube of their Photo Finish Lid Primer as well as nine powder eyeshadows, two creme liners and a double-ended brush you can use for both eyeshadows. Also included a big mirror inside and a “Get the Look” pamphlet featuring three eye looks!

The shadow shades run the gamut from bright pops of color, to a light but super strong duochrome to dark and smokey. All the shadows were really soft and had great payoff. They’re smooth and easily blend-able. Really great mix of colors here.

Merle Norman Lip Polish in Mademoiselle Swatches & Review

Merle Norman Lip Polish in Mademoiselle

Did you know that Merle Norman, established in 1931, is still around and now better than ever?

Eventually she gave it to me and I had it all the way through being a teen. I never really used it, it just sat on my desk. I like the way it looked. :)
