I stopped reading other people's blogs to update mine! Ha!
I haven't see these items on the blogs I read, so I decided to show you what I found in my neck of the woods. I was making a mad dash to Rite Aid to pick up some disposables for a gig and I spotted this: new Wet N Wild eye shadow palettes and a collection with new lipsticks and polish. Sorry for not getting a full shot, but the display was right across from the registers and I didn't want to seem stalkerish... I haven't been feeling too paparazzi lately.
Great! These ColorIcon palettes, are so much cuter than their old Ultimate Expressions palettes (
which I believe these are called as well). They retail $4.99... ehhh. However, these were 40% off, woo hoo! I grabbed two- Pride and Greed (2nd and 4th palettes). What's up with the names? Lust is the third palette and Vanity, perhaps is the first palette. The names totally don't match the promo image.
I love little collection releases, but these pink and red lipsticks and polishes weren't enticing enough for me to grab any. The polishes were $1.99, not too sure about the price of the lipsticks. Maybe when I'm in the mood for a Valentine's FOTD, these might come in handy! **Edited: Interested in a review of the lipstick and nail polish? Check out Nouveau Cheap's post!
Included in the palette is a little brush and a little sponge applicator. As you would expect, the brush is useless, but a cute attempt. The colors are nice, but I'm undecided on how I feel about them. Decent color and pigmentation for Wet N Wild, but I feel I've had better shadows from them. The mattes (like the green) I noticed oxidized a bit, (kinda like MUFE) so either you don't mind or should use a more opaque, colored base with them than what I used which was MAC's Painterly paintpot.
