Sunday Night Check-In and Pics of Some Upcoming Reviews

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup


Tabs chillin’ in his spa (notice the “Giant Pet Hair Roller” in the upper right corner, ha ha!)

Night, ladies. How was your Sunday? Since I was in that photography class most of the day, I didn’t think I’d have time for the open thread, but I did still want to check in and post a preview of some budget and luxury eyeshadows I plan to review this week.


Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trios in Cool as a Cucumber (left) and On Cloud Nine (right), $3 each


Swatches of Cool as a Cucumber on NC35 skin


Swatches of On Cloud Nine


Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Color Eyeshadow Quad in Petal, $59


Swatches of Petal

See anything you like? I have admittedly high hopes for the two $3 Wet n Wild trios, but part of me wonders how much I can logically expect when the individual colors work out to $1 apiece.

I guess we’ll find out soon enough… Sleep well! I’ll see you tomorrow. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    I really like the eyelid colour in cool as a cucumber, its a really nice green, im starting 2 go in2 colours like that lately :)

  3. Jen says:

    Cool as a Cucumber looks… well, cool as a cucumber! I like the colors. Can’t wait to read your review on it.

    And, as expected, the D&B quad is breath-taking.

  4. gio says:

    The green in the cucumber quad looks beautiful! It’s a shame the crease color in that palette doesn’t look very pigmented, it looked so pretty in the pan.

    The D&G quad is beautiful too.

    Love that Cool as a Cucumber. Do you advise certain eye shadows for different eye colors? I think I remember hearing that somewhere in the recesses of my girl-training.

    Love the D&G! And, yes, my eye immediately went to the giant pet hair roller and I thought “Man, I sooo need to get some of those!”. I’ll tell you, 3 cats is the tipping point in terms of shedding and litter box cleaning. Geesh! :)

  7. Aww, that’s adorable! One of my kitties loves to sleep in the bathroom sink, and the tub too.

    LOL! I’m glad I’m not the only one that noticed the giant pet hair roller first.

    Speaking of eyeshadow, I got a L’oreal HIP duo in Sassy yesterday at Target. It was on clearance for $3.38! I love Target clearance!!

  9. alicia says:

    I really like the D&G, but $59?!?! Oh my sheesh! I can only spend that much on face potions and powder/foundation. I may have missed this post, but have you tried L’oreal’s Hip line? I’ve been curious, and the price is more up my alley.

  10. alicia says:

    well lookee there, kymberlee just bought it! I don’t read the comments before I comment. Maybe I should :-)

    • Kymberlee says:

      I wore it this morning and I have to say that I do like it!

      • alicia says:

        Thanks! I’ll have to make my way over to Ulta. I have a rule for cosmetic purchases..I only buy them where I can get rewards i.e. Sephora and Ulta, unless there’s a real bargain like the one you found.

  11. Lindsay says:

    I didn;t expect cloud nine to look so good! Lol I have that same pet hair roller

  12. Nina says:

    You know whats funny – Linus did the exact same thing last week – lay in our sink like that! I took a picture of it … 😀

    Im loving those wet n wild eyeshadows, they have surely stepped up their eyeshadow game! :)

  13. Agnes says:

    Love the D&G quad!!! however, the wet n wild ones are more priced for me so i will most likely go and check those out and skip on the D&G haha. thanks for the swatches! wnw has impressed me lately with their eyeshadows and i’m hoping these are just as goood! 😀
