It's so frustrating when makeup lines are discontinued. Prescriptives? Gone. Tony and Tina? Gone. Tony and Tina made the best brushes. This Rock and Republic eyeshadow in "Tempting," has become one of my favorites. It's hard to tell from the photos, but this rich taupe has a hint of mauve in it, and anything that is even remotely in the purple family always captures my attention. Well, not everything, but this is well done.
The shadow is richly saturated with a bit of shimmer, but not frosty. I imagine it will look great with a plum eyeliner and plum or purple mascara. I bought it during a two-day sale on one of those online sample sites. It's sold out on the Rock and Republic site, so I'll be keeping eye on eBay.
For those of you who are interested, Stila goes on sale Monday, Aug. 23 on Hautelook and Urban Decay on Wednesday. (Full disclosure: the Hautelook link is a referral link.)
I have been buying more makeup than yarn lately, thanks to a natural inclination and Oprah's discounts last month. I bought deeply discounted products that I've dying to try. I'll post those later as well as the Colourmart cashmere blend that arrived last week. I'm not sure it matches the Habu but it's beautiful!
