Things have been a little stressful at work and I needed some cheap retail therapy, here comes Target to the rescue!
This week's buys:
- Essie Luxe Effects Nail Polish in A Cut Above
- Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tatoo in Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe
- L'oreal Infalliable 24hr Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe
- Covergirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara in Very Black (Olympic Pkg)
The nail polish is fabulous - more pictures to come! The mascara is a must-have for summer. I typically don't wear waterproof mascara, but the pool and summer work-outs demand it! As for the cream shadows, verdict is still out . . . The Infalliable really lasts 24 hours (waterproof!) and has a great metallic sheen (high drama). It looks a little olive once applied, but I wore it a couple times this week and it's growing on me.
The Maybelline Color Tatoo is a little more disappointing. I wanted something easy to apply to the eyelids for non-fussy, waterproof, summertime wear. The colors are a little off once applied (the taupe looks blue on me!) and it fades after just a few hours of wearing. I gave the Bronze another try this weekend and it's fine - just a wash of color, nothing special. If you were trying to chose between the two lines, I'd go L'oreal.
