HG Spotlight: Rock & Republic Eyeshadow Review/Swatches11:43 PM
Since there is a Rock & Republic Beauty sale on Hautelook TODAY 1-24-2011 I wanted to post up this video I recorded this weekend. I didn't even realize there would be a sale so soon but I hope this review will come in handy for those of you who are interested in the eyeshadows!
Veil - matte eggshell
Carat - creamy golden sheen
Exile - warm metallic honey-bronze
Vintage - warm matte brown with depth
Diffused - cool taupe (maybe similar to MAC Satin Taupe)
Lawsuit - duochrome with green flash over a burgundy-brown base
Snakeskin - grey-green-brown dusty awesomeness
Chronic - olive green with golden sheen
Envy - perfect forest green (maybe a MAC Humid dupe)
Jaded - a bright, shiny jade green
Electric - a saturated, glowy electric blue
Tempting - dusty, shiny purple
Paranoid - awesomely warm, matte, saturated purple
Twisted - glowy cool purple with a purple-blue flash
The colors that I LOVE the most from this collection are Carat, Lawsuit, and Snakeskin. Seriously, I could call nearly all of them my favorites on any given day though. I hope you can see from my swatches how high-quality and saturated these colors are. These swatches were with no primer at all, and they are the very swatches I did while making the video so it's not like I was trying extra hard to get great swatches.
Definitely HG material for me! :D
I also wore these during the video, but I'll talk about them in the future.
Rock & Republic Exhibition Pressed Powder in Satin
Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in Spank
Hope these swatches are helpful for those of you wanting to purchase from the Rock & Republic sales going around but were curious about the eyeshadows. My opinion? Absolutely try them out! You won't be disappointed, at least in the colors that I own. :)
If you bought some or own any already, let me know what you got in the comments!
(I bought these all myself. No disclaimers needed. :)
