Make-up Monday: Maybelline LE Fall Eye Studio Quad in Fall Temptation

mumpg

 

For today’s Make-up Monday, I have swatches of Maybelline’s new Eye Studio quad called Fall Temptation. Fall Temptation is a part of Maybelline’s LE Fall collection (I believe it is called Fashion Week 2013). It is one of four new quads in that LE collection. I looked at the other items in the collection, but besides a couple of the nail polishes nothing really interested me.

Very beautiful colors! I love the formula and finish of these shadows. They are always pigmented and blends easily, but still keep their own color (they don’t get muddy basically). I thought this quad would by a more everyday quad for me versus the other ones offered.

Fall Temptation is now in stores. If you would like this quad, I would grab it as soon as you see it because there is only 2 slots per quad in the displays (refilling displays depends on store and supply).

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Pop of Cherry & Electric Fuchsia (LE Color Goes Electric Collection 2013)

Maybelline Pop of Cherry & Electric Fuchsia

While I was picking up a couple of items from Maybelline’s new LE Spring collection, I noticed that there was some new LE Vivids lipsticks. To be honest, the Vivids are not in my make-up comfort zone and had not purchased any of them. Kassie of shadesofkassie’s instagram post, however, changed my mind. Electric Fuchsia is a dupe for the wildly popular Mac Pink Pigeon. Then, G. from Nouveau Cheap did a comparison post of Vivid Neon Red (core) and Pop of Cherry (LE). Pop of Cherry looked great on her pale skin, which made me believe that I could possibly rock it too.

Honestly, the swatches are a little intimating to me. Definitely not in my comfort zone! I am, however, trying this year to push myself to try new things. When I was swatching them, I did find the colors gorgeous. Pop of Cherry is a blue based pinkish red and Electric Fuchsia is a bright fuchsia pink (seems to lean slightly blue toned in my opinion). Both lipsticks are very creamy and apply smoothly. Electric Fuchsia is more opaque than Pop of Cherry (as you can see by the swatch). The smell of both lipsticks is kind of odd. Pop of Cherry smells like a NYX lip gloss, which reminds me of Laffy Taffy candy in cherry flavor. On the flip side, Electric Fuchsia does not really have any smell to it. So it is a little bit weird that one would have a very distinctive smell and the other would be void of scent. Overall, I’m glad I picked them up and will be trying them out this month.

Are you picking up any of Maybelline’s LE collection?
