Estée Lauder Pure Color Gelee Eyeshadows

The Estée Lauder Pure Color Gelee Shadows are a unique product. They have a hybrid cream/gel/powder formula and feel cool and slightly damp on application.

I have three shades; Cyber Ruby, Cybr Lilac, and Cyber Gold. Cyber Ruby is a slightly blackened red and my personal favorite. Cyber Lilac is a metallic pinkish purple. Cyber Gold is a metallic gold.

I really enjoy these and will add more to my collection as colors catch my eye!
These can be used wet or dry. Using them wet will intensify the color and metallic finish. These retail for $24.

Purchased by me.

Urban Decay Fun Palette: Holiday 2012

This is mainly going to be pictures since I haven't had much time to use this yet. It contains six shadows and a small (I mean tiny) lipgloss. The packaging is super cute and can be used after the shadows are out.

I did use Maui Wowie today and whole it's a super pretty color, I did have a big of glitter fall out. Not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of. Te other shadows look smoother, so hopefully that won't be a problem with many shades.

This palette is available now and costs $36.

Chanel Glossimer #04

I recently went to my local Chanel counter looking for a gloss from the Fall Collection. Sadly, they were sold out but I did find a gorgeous burgundy/red Glossimer.

It's semi-opaque to opaque coverage with beautiful shimmer. It will be perfect for Fall or holiday parties.

Glossimer's are pretty comfortable to wear, not too sticky. They are expensive for a gloss at $28, but are a nice indulgence on occasion.

This particular shade is part of the permanent collection and was purchased by me.

BareMinerals Concealor

As a mom, sleep isn't always easy to come by. Dark circles are a day to day fight to cover.

I was in the market for a new user eye concealor and was introduced to this little gem. It's super creamy which is nice for under the eye since it doesn't pull or drag during application. It doesn't offer full coverage, but a nice natural coverage.

I really do like this and think its worthy look. It has a decent range of colors and I was matched to the lightest one. It has a nice peachy/pink undertone which helps with blue or purple dark circles.

All in all, it's nice to see a cream concealor from BareMinerals. I like that they are branching out from loose products as I think they have excellent quality. The pressed items are just easier to use and travel with.
