Not really, read on for a review.
Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal 24hr Cream Eyeshadow in Barely Branded retails for $6-7 and after seeing countless, positive reactions to these Color Tattoos, I was intrigued, especially towards this shimmery champagne color.

I was inspired by Lisa Eldridge's "Easy, Effortless Winged Liner" look that she just uploaded today. The look was so fresh and simple, so I wanted to try it (mainly the eyeliner part). I didn't do a full face.
Unfortunately, I don't own an adequate eyeliner brush, so the wing didn't come out as dark since the Real Techniques pixel-point eyeliner brush isn't meant for powder. But I like the whole soft-wing look, especially when done with a dusty purple-brown, so I plan to invest in an angled eyeliner brush. Keep reading for the products I used and how I did the look.

[Update] Sightings | Real Techniques, LORAC, Jane, Pür Minerals, Cargo, and theBalm Now In-Stores at Kohl's!
I went to Kohl's again and all the new makeup brands (Real Techniques, Lorac, Jane, Pür Minerals, Cargo, theBalm) were stocked and set-up! So excited! To see if your Kohl's has these new brands, you can search on Kohl's website if your store has an item in stock. And if you don't have a Kohl's nearby, you can order the stuff online, because they have some exclusive items.
This was a surprise; I heard Jane was coming to Ulta but I
guess it came to my Kohl's instead (my Kohl's and Ulta
aren't too far apart though, and my Ulta probably has
no room for Jane)
After swatching Mary Lou-Manizer, I was impressed. Definitely putting the Mary/Betty-Lou Manizer duo on my wishlist ($29, what a steal considering that one -manizer is $24). I also saw the Balm Voyage palette.

Review + Swatches | Lancôme - Color Design Sensational Effects Eyeshadow Singles (Kitten Heel, Latte, Madison Avenue)
|Kitten Heel - Latte - Madison Avenue|
These Color Design eyeshadows by Lancôme retail for $19, and they are not too bad. The shades I have came in the Beauty Collection gift set in Classic. Lancôme claims that these eyeshadows are:
- Easy to apply
These claims are for the most part true, but I wouldn't say these shadows are worth the $19. Read on for a detailed review or skip to the bottom for a list of pros and cons.

This cream blush by Drew Barrymore's makeup line "Flower" retails for $8 and has converted me to cream blushes. Flower claims on their website that this blush:
- Conforms to skin for a soft powder-like finish
- Blush transforms into a soft velvet veil on cheeks
- Deposits gentle color for a healthy glow
- Perfect for layering to build your desired look
I swear to god I found out that Flower claimed these about this blush after I wrote my review, and I am impressed and amazed that these claims are actually spot on and not just marketing ploys. The shade I have is Peach Blossom. It has a great texture (not sticky at all) and it's so easy to apply and blend. Definitely a favorite!

This mascara by CoverGirl retails for $7-$9 and claims to give your lashes 200% more volume with absolutely no clumps. It actually produces minimal clumps and is a decent lengthening and volumizing mascara, but there's one thing that keeps it from being the best.

|base shadow - accent - pixel-point eyeliner - deluxe crease - brow|
This versatile brush set by Real Techniques was designed by Pixiwoo half Samantha Chapman, and it retails for $18. It is relatively affordable and it's great quality! Included is 5 brushes (base shadow, accent, pixel-point eyeliner, deluxe crease, and brow) and a case for travel or for display. This isn't the best eye brush set, especially for smaller eyes, but the brushes can be re-purposed in multiple ways into your makeup routine, specifically concealer.
