You know Merle Norman Cosmetics? You don’t have to think of it as your mom’s cosmetic line anymore… they are actually a cool brand and I am happily shocked. Check out the makeup that was sent to me (especially the lipstick); it’s so pretty! I even created a classy makeup look that I think would be perfect for the fall.
First Impressions: Oh my gosh, that lipstick… that eyeliner!
WIT AND WHIMSY Eyeshadow Palette
Brand Overview: The Wit and Whimsy has three gorgeous eyeshadow shades in Bare it All, Surely, and Stormy. This eyeshadow trio is a stunning mix of cool, blues and greys.
My Thoughts: I think what I loved most about the Merle Norman Wit and Whimsy Eyeshadow Palette was how creamy the shades were. All three applied perfectly and gave me a nice, classy eyeshadow look.
Price Tag: $20.00
Color Max Shadow in Plum Surprise
Brand Overview: Duo Chromatic pigments give you high intensity eyeshadows, while the pearlized powders create a dimensional effect. With only a single swipe, these eyeshadows will give you amazing color pay-off.
My Thoughts: It’s not as creamy as I thought it would be and I had to apply it wet in order to make it work. I do think the size of the eyeshadow is a bonus, but probably not a re-purchase for me.
Price Tag: around $11.00
Merle Norman Soft Touch Eye Pencil
Brand Overview: If you are looking for an award-winning eyeliner, this ultra creamy pencil is the one for you. Perfect for creating a smoldering-smoky eye, or to use as an eyeshadow base for an even further pop of color.
My Thoughts: I can definitely see why this is an award-winning eyeliner. It is super rich with color and glides on perfectly to make a seamless line or a smudged out smoky eye. It also stayed on throughout the day and didn’t slip and slide all over my eyelid in the Texas heat.
Creamy Lipcolor in Pinkerbell
Brand Overview: This is a moisturizing peach lipstick that has an exclusive age-defying complex to increase water retention and diminish fine lines while giving full coverage.
My Thoughts: This is one of my favorite lip colors I have ever owned. It’s this beautiful peachy-pink lip color that is perfect for any season. It looks great with a natural look or a smoky eye. It’s a pretty functional lipstick that gives great color and is super moisturizing.
Overall Thoughts and Opinions:
While not everything that was sent to me from Merle Norman cosmetics is going to be a re-purchase, I am obsessed with the lipstick and eyeliner.
