Product Review -- Hourglass Cosmetics Graphik Eyeshadow Palette


The very first high-end luxury makeup item I ever purchased was an Hourglass Cosmetics eyeshadow duo way back in the day.

That's what started my love affair with the brand, and despite their pretty steep prices, I'm always very curious about the new items they put out.  I don't always buy them, mind you, but I always at least consider it.

A few years back when they came out with brand new eyeshadow palettes (The Modernist Palettes, I believe they were called), I picked one up as soon as they were available -- so it was a serious bummer when I was pretty underwhelmed by the shadows.

Don't get me wrong... they were perfectly fine, but for $58 for just five shades, I'm expecting a little more than fine.

Still, when Hourglass came out with the Graphik Eyeshadow Palettes a few months ago, I picked one up without hesitation. The brand's track record still carries a lot more hits than misses in my book, so I figured it was definitely worth a try.

Product Review -- Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette Vol. 1



I've really been enjoying my subscription to Boxycharm because it's gotten me to try a lot of products that I wouldn't have otherwise but have wound up really liking.

The most recent case?

The Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette Vol. 1.

Alamar Cosmetics is a new brand, but while I'm always up for trying new brands, the color scheme of the Reina Del Caribe Vol. 1 Palette isn't one that I would necessarily gravitate towards on my own.
