IMAN Cosmetics Perfect Eye Shadow Pencil

IMAN Cosmetics recently launched their 6 new perfect eye shadow pencils at the DownTown
Club Saturday, April 11th to host the Beauty, Business & Blogger Networking Lunch Live! Houston, Texas, hosted by Dee & Co Group. I was able to watch the event online and receive two shadow pencils to try for myself. I don't think I've ever tried an IMAN Cosmetic item and I was REALLY excited to. The two eye shadow pencils I received are: deception (emerald) and intrigue (champagne).  These eye shadow pencils retail for $10 each.

From the Iman website:
The ideal fusion of a shadow and a pencil in seductively rich colors and texture. Enhanced with Jojoba & Vitamin E, it ensures the most silky, smooth application that stays in place.

 Expertly Defines & Lines Eyes
Color your way to beautiful with New IMAN Luxury Eyeshadow Pencils. Silky smooth, long-wearing eye shadow with the ease of a pencil.

  • Non-Greasy Formula
  • Applies Easily & Blends Beautifully
  • Richly Pigmented for Definition on Darker Skin Tones
 
 Deception & Intrigue.

Swatches - Deception (top) and Intrigue (bottom)

As soon as I saw the intrigue pencil I applied it all over my lid and was surprised by how light the color is, it's a beautiful color but I was expecting the color to pop more. However I received SO many compliments on this color that I think it's going to be a regular in my makeup routine. Deception is SOOO beautiful!! The emerald color is perfect for brown eyes and really makes them stand out. The eye shadow pencils are very smooth and glide on easily, they blend in quickly, and they do last all day. Intrigue did smudge a bit on me, but it only made the look prettier!! I'm excited to try more products from IMAN cosmetics.

NYC BB Cream Stick in Never Sleeping Pink

NYC Beautifying Blushable (BB) Cream Stick in Never Sleeping Pink

Does this look familiar..?? NYC used to make cream sticks a WHILE ago and I LOVED them. I have no idea why they were discontinued, but I'm so glad they are back!!

Give your face the happiness and glow it deserves!
Just spent the night in Tribeca's coolest club, you need an after party remedy to dull, tired skin? Just because you stayed out late last night, doesn't mean your skin has to remember it all the next day. Just one swipe on each cheekbone, smudge and you will get beautiful fresh complexion. Like Sleeping Beauty, cheat your way to gorgeousness, as if you just woke up from a long night sleep. - NYC website

Swatches
Top - Light Swatch
Bottom - Heavily Swatched

I feel like the formula of these BB cream sticks is VERY similar to the old formulas, these may be a bit creamier. These suckers are pigmented so it's quite easy to over do it, but with a light hand the color is so beautiful and it blends in easily.

Are you a fan of cream blushes?

Born Pretty Store - Jojo Eyeshadow Palette

Note: This product was sent to me for free to review. My opinion is 100% honest and unbiased. 
 
Happy Monday!! It's a very dark and gloomy day so I needed to write about something colorful and fun!! Born Pretty Store was kind enough to send me this palette to review and I'm so impressed by it!
JoJo 02 - No.J208

This palette comes with 8 colors, I believe the bottom two would be great as an eyeliner/for eyebrows. Now let's talk about the blue eyeshadows....gorgeous right?!? These are swatches without a primer underneath and I can't get over how pigmented and smooth they are. This is a great little palette - perfect for travel, the colors blend very easily, and the blue colors are so bright and cheerful!
