Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Swatches and Review

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow

Happy Thursday afternoon!

Today I have twelve more Makeup Geek Eyeshadow shades swatched for you. In case you haven’t yet gotten on the Makeup Geek train, you might want to reconsider. I have reviewed quite a few of their eyeshadows here, here, here and here and these are just as fabulous!

Makeup Geek shadows are extremely pigmented and soft. You can buy them like this, just in the pan to place in a Z Palette (or other type of palette), or in a compact. They are cruelty free, paraben free and talc free. The best part? They are very inexpensive and very high quality.

Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux

Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux

Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux is the follow-up to the Love Lyrics collection from last spring.

Last time around the shades were named after favorite love-themed song titles. This time they are named after song lyrics. There are six shades in the collection and they are all jellies with shimmer and/or micro-glitter. Each one took three coats to become opaque.

These shades seem so perfect for spring to me, they’re very soft and feminine looking. They remind me of a light wash of pastel paint.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick for Summer 2014

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

New for summer 2014 is Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick. And can I just say – YAHOO!!!!

The first time I saw a press image for these I think I squealed. They looked SO melty, colorful, intense and amazing. And they really are.

So what is this beautiful witchcraft? It’s a combination of a lip stain, liquid lipstick and lip gloss. Jerrod Blandino, Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director, got the idea because he loved the intensity and glossiness of lipstick when it’s in its melted form in the cosmetic lab vats. He wanted to create something as rich and glossy, while keeping it super comfortable to wear.

He totally nailed it.

MLB Collection by OPI

MLB Collection by OPI

Just in time for the opening regular week of baseball is the MLB Collection by OPI.

This collection consists of seven limited edition shades, all inspired by the colors of Major League Baseball. This is actually the first ever professional sports league licensing agreement for OPI.

I am glad that MLB is recognizing that there are women out there who love the sport and who might want to wear nail polish to represent their favorite team. Oh and of course guys, feel free to wear these if you want as well! Here is a quote from Howard Smith, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Major League Baseball “Major League Baseball understands the importance of female fans in the growth and success of our sport, and so we continuously seek new opportunities to diversify our portfolio of licensed offerings to target this extensive fan base. We are beyond thrilled to partner with OPI, a premium brand in a unique category of business, to launch this new line of exclusive nail polish, giving fans yet another colorful way to show off their team pride at the start of the 2014 baseball season.”

Now, let’s PLAY BALL! Sorry, I had to.

CK One Long Wear + Shine Nail Color

CK One Long Wear + Shine Nail Color

About two years ago Calvin Klein came out with a makeup and nail polish line called CK One Color. I believe I heard they already had one awhile back in Europe, but I think this is the first line here in the USA.

I had seen the collection at Ulta a few times and was always intrigued by the slightly futuristic looking white packaging. The last time I was there I decided to purchase a couple of the nail colors to try ‘em out.

The CK One Long Wear + Shine Nail Color line comes in eleven shades. It has a wide, flat brush and a long-wear, shiny formula.
