Although it's been a few months (cough...six), I haven't fully unpacked. Some of my favorite eyeshadow palettes are still laying around my old room, which gives me an excuse to buy more, right? I saw Ellen Tracy makeup products at TJ Maxx and couldn't not experiment. I thought the brand sounded familiar when it came to clothing, but hadn't ever heard of a beauty line. Being daring as always (...with makeup), I picked up the 'Bare to Bold' eyeshadow palette and the 'Nudes' Liquid Lipstick Collection. Get ready for a double the trouble review:

'Bare to Bold' Eyeshadow

What I liked -

  • Color selection. Sign me up for all of these gorgeous neutrals. They range from beiges, pinks, to deep browns and even a little bit of purple-y action.

What I didn't like -

  • Not super pigmented. I love the 'a little goes a long way' mentality and this palette doesn't have it. It takes a few swipes to get the color you want. Good for babes who like buildable coverage.
  • The brush. I typically use my own eyeshadow brushes for palettes, but I think I'm still allowed to complain about the teeny plastic-y not helpful brush included.

'Nudes' Liquid Lipstick Collection

What I liked -

  • Longwear. This lipstick lasts so long - and when it eventually fades, it does so evenly. No clumpy mess.
  • Color selection. I see you, Ellen Tracy. These colors are just bomb. My favorite is 'Bare.'

What I didn't like -

  • Difficult to purchase. How can you be so beautiful and mysterious, matte lipsticks?! I hate that I can't easily find either of these products online.

I advise everyone to get to TJ Maxx yesterday ;) PS: See both of these put to test in my how-to tutorial.
