New from Revlon, Burt’s Bees, and More


I spotted some interesting new displays while I was at Ulta and Target last week.

Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow Palettes

First up at Ulta, are the new Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow Palettes.  Limitless LooksOne PaletteNo Guesswork. is what the display claims.  Each palette includes three shadows, one “primer” and one sparkle topcoat.  I use quotation marks because what Revlon is calling a “primer” is another powder eyeshadow that is used to even out the color of your eyelid.  I wonder if that “primer” shadow interferes with the other shades in the palette and if it helps the look last longer in any way.  It doesn’t make sense to me that it would act as a primer if it is just a powder shadow, but I did not buy a palette so I can’t be sure.  If you have one of these Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow Palettes, I’d love to know how the primer and the sparkle topcoat are working for you.

Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 Collection

Next at Ulta, I found this Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 Collection.  Included are 2 sparkly lip gloss shades, 2 glitter eyeliner shades, a shimmer powder, a blush, a lipstick, 3 loose pigment eyeshadow shades, and four nail polish shades.  I almost purchased the blush, a gorgeous pinkish red, but ditched it at the last minute because I already have Tarte Natural Beauty that is a similar color.  The collection is a little cheesy and super sparkly, but Twi-hard fans will want to snatch it up.

Ecotools and Tweezerman Holiday 2012

Finally at Ulta, I found these neat little tools sets.  On the left is the Ecotools Day-to-night 6-piece brush set.  Ecotools brushes are pretty nice, so this cute little gift set would be a good one.  On the right is the Tweezerman merry manicure set.  For only $5.00, it would make a great stocking stuffer.

Burt’s Bees Holiday 2012

When I was at target snapping shots of their huge e.l.f. holiday collection that I showed you last week, I also got pics of this Burt’s Bees holiday display.  There are a ton of lip products, as well as creams, lotions, and balms.

Burt’s Bees Holiday 2012

There should be many more holiday displays popping up over the next couple of weeks.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is already practically here!  November has been flying by.  If you have purchased any of these products, I’d love to know how they are working out for you.  Tell me in the comments below.
