[Some favorite hues from the L’Oreal Colour Riche Eye Shadow Collection]
L’Oreal has come out with a bevy of incredible cosmetics recently, but for me, my love of the Colour Riche Eye Shadow is about as intense as the shades are magnificently gorgeous. The shade Pain au Chocolat (#207) came with me on my trip to Japan, and ended up being the perfect compliment to both my day and night attire, smoothly gliding on over the lids with my fingertip, or thinning it out along the lash line with an eyeliner brush applicator. The well-edited assortment of just 15 colors come in compact, beautiful packaging, and the matte and/or shimmery options stay in the range of ‘adult-friendly’ hues; none of them skew too “young” or too “costumey.” Last but not least, the best part could possibly be that Colour Riche Eye Shadow retails for just $5.99 each, at mass food and drug retailers nationwide and online at Ulta.com.
[Colors from the two new Morgan Taylor lines include Wish Upon a Starboard and Street Cred-ible]
Oh, the things I do in the name of research, like test out new shades from one of my favorite nail polish brands… I know, I know; my job can be VERY difficult sometimes! I’ve gradually been trying out new shades from the Morgan Taylor A Very Nauti-cal Girl Collection and the Street Beat Collection (both available starting May 2016), which both provide a vibrant, upbeat assortment of colors that are certain to enhance and enrich your boho infused summer wardrobe. Pictured above are a favorite of mine from each of the collections, but you can expect some great hue variety, such as Catch My Drift, a cobalt crème, and Give Me a Break-dance, a teal pearl. As always, each bottle retails for $9, available at MorganTaylorLacquer.com starting next month.
