Published in: Makeup

Bad beauty habits. You know I’ve had my share, like nail nibbling, pimple popping and rubbing at my eyes, and I’ve successfully kicked most of them to the goldarn curb. But there’s one beauty habit I don’t ever plan to break…


I hoard neutral eyeshadow palettes, and I don’t ever plan to stop! πŸ™‚

I think of them as timeless and always in style, like ocular trench coats, and they’re wearable any time of year. And, baby girl, when the colors are cruelty-free, gorgeous shades of green, brown, peach and beige, like the eight shimmery shadows gracing the new Josie Maran Eye Love You Too Palette ($42), it’s ON!

JM recently launched this new palette of powder shadows at Sephora stores and online. Soft like velvet and smooth against the skin, the textures feel similar to the powder shadows in Josie’s Wonder Powder Palette, and I love the way they look. The levels of pigment vary from sheer to medium across the line, with multi-dimensional finishes that appear shimmery, yet not overly frosty.

Argan Eyes Are Smiling

The eyeshadows in the Eye Love You Too palette are infused with Argan oil, an antioxidant-rich oil believed to calm and soothe troubled skin. And, like all of Josie’s makeup, it’s free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and phthalates, too.

Unfortunately, at $42, it’s a little on the expensive side, but that breaks down to about $5.25 per shadow, which isn’t all that bad if you look at it that way.

    those shades are right up my alley. i havent tried any josie maran product other than her argan oil stick. πŸ™‚

  2. Linda says:

    I use a Josie Maran moisturizer- I didn’t even know about the make up- does it last? With/without primer?

  3. Kim says:

    I love it when you break it down to the per shadow cost – it looks so much better that way! πŸ™‚ I’m not tempted, though, because I’m stuck on that darn Givenchy and visions of orange.

    Oh, btw, I tried out the 30 Day Shred yesterday (straight to Level 3, because I’m impatient). I think it’s going to be good paired with 40 minutes or so on the treadmill. I also got the Burn Fat, Boost Metabolism and will give that a go tonight. Thanks, as always, for the good makeup AND workout DVD recs. πŸ™‚

    That palette is gorgeous! And cost per shadow is good too because I think you would actually use them all unlike some palettes

    Ooh! Thank you so much for showing and swatching! I’ve been stalking this palette since it hit Sephora.com and am still on the fence, especially since I just bought Josie’s Eye Love You palette (which is also amazing). This may tip me over into Yesland.

    I am definitely a card carrying member of the Sisterhood of the Neutral Eyeshadow. πŸ™‚ These shadows are really pretty. Thanks for the swatches!

    Karen, Karen, Karen,
    I’m waiting for you to compare the new Nyx Nude on Nude palette (with 20 shadows and 10 lip colours) with the Naked Palette. I remember you doing a faceoff with the old square nude and nude and it was one of the best comparison pieces I’d read.
    More please, and hello to Tabs!

  16. Heidi says:

    My name is Heidi and I’m a neutral eye shadow palette – aholic!

    These look amazing and I think I may have to get this as a Happy Birthday to ME gift!

  17. Vijaya says:

    I love Josie Maran’s lipstains so, so much. I’m trying to be good and wait a while ’til I buy anything new, because I just made some large purchases.

  18. Julie says:

    Hi Karen, I would love to see you do a look with these colours! A FOTD please? πŸ™‚

  19. BeautyMaven says:

    Hahaha I am DEFINITELY a lifetime member of the Sisterhood of I’m-addicted-to-palettes!!I have never thought to break it down to cost per eyeshadow– genius! Thanks for the tip! πŸ˜‰
    Ever since the addition of The Naked Palette into my life, I’ve felt guilty about looking at any other palettes, because I truly don’t -need- them.. Le siiiigh… Lol
    Maybe I should travel more to justify the palettes, yeah? πŸ˜€

  20. DalaLuz says:

    So so pretty… I am a neutral-holic, yes, although lack of cash flow keeps me from buying any more palettes. For now!

  21. Meghan says:

    Oh my gosh! These are awesome!!!! <3

  22. Some great and interesting colours here, with a really illuminating metallic sheen! They would look gorgeous when recreating a more earthy toned alternative to the smoky eye.
