Or not so recent, rather. I’ve been slowly amassing this little pile of treasures over the past few months, so nothing about this post is very current. Truthfully, it’s been so long since I posted on this blog I forgot how to login (!) so I suppose nothing about this blog is either. However, now that I’ve got some more time on my hands I plan to be more present over here. For starters, here’s a look at they eye shadows I’ve acquired in 2013. A closer look at the face and lip products will be coming soon!
Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds are Singing Long-lasting Eye Shadows in Angelic Cockatiels & Bohemian Waxwing
I adore RBR shadows for their creamy texture, and gorgeous, multi-dimensional finish which these photos don’t do justice to. If you’re looking to try RBR for the first time, these two beautifully wearable shades would be an excellent way to dip your toes in.
Zuzu Luxe Eye Shadows in Vixen & Chameleon
$15.25 USD, available at Gabriel Cosmetics and elsewhere.
These eye-enhancing neutrals provide a satin finish, and contain natural, safe ingredients.
Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Suede
This Hourglass duo is an item you really have to see in person to fully appreciate. At first glance it may not be the most eye-catching (heh) product, but its strength lies in its superior craftsmanship. Personally, I prefer these shadows to the likes of designer luxury brands such as Burberry or Chanel. If you’re looking for a thoughtfully curated collection of expertly crafted neutrals, Hourglass is an excellent brand to check out.
Becca Eye Tint in Vicuna
If you’re looking for an easy-peasy, crease-resistant cream eye shadow that provides a light peachy champagne wash of color, Vicuna is your lady. It’s perfect for days when you’ve got to rush out the door, or are just aiming for a simple look. It can also function as an eyeshadow base, or be layered with other eye tints for a more complex look.
